  fredthebear: An opposing knight intruding on the 3rd/6th rank is painfully restrictive. Just sitting there causes ongoing problems. The knight invader often can make all kinds of new threats if it should move to a different colored square. Here the roof falls in on White's head starting with the Bishop pin of the White Ne2, which tends to serve White better in queen pawn openings.

7.h3 instead of castling seems to give White a playable game. White must weed out the Black Bishop before it receives support from the h-pawn. Castling allows Black to retain the pin/half-pin and discovered attack potential, as well as a possible Arabian Mate down the h-file.

Although checkmate is not immediate, this game is a crusher. White is miserable after castling. FTB thinks Najdorf is sometimes under appreciated for his attacking skills. Every type of unit but his king is involved in the attack.

In the final position, Black will play BxRf3 next. The only way White can prevent a support checkmate on the g2-square is a meager attempt at defense by retreating Qc2, and then Qc2 drops off after a skewer+ from her adversary. White resigns rather than suffer further badgering.
