I've only read a little on Nietzsches' thoughts on Islam. I understand he was quite admirable of it because it was crueller than Christianity. For those who have read this part of Niiettzsches' work, what do you think his views were of Islam and the Islamic world?

I think while he does at times appear to treat it more sympathetically than something like Christianity, it was more because it was less mythologically oriented, not because it was "crueller." There are still important condemnations of it however
