By contrast, the highly inbred Muslim peoples aren't as able to unite as easily, and really were only able to do this a few times in history, under the Caliphate (which didn't last long) and possibly under the Ottoman Turks.
As well, people with a long history of civilization have the ability to easily submit to central authority (as opposed to tribal peoples who are only subdued by the power of local strongmen), which is how Eastern Europeans and East Asians operate, and this aids in developing large and powerful armies; which we saw to powerful effect in WWII.
Ironically, the dark side of the docility and sophistication of high-IQ peoples is the massive levels of death and destruction they can wreak when led to war. Think maybe of the Clone Troopers from the Star Wars prequels—they follow orders and amass into to deadly effect.
