IIRC the Romans cut hands off corpses to tally the dead - less grusome then heads altough heads of dignitaries were taken as trophies and used as threats/warning to tribes in Gaul et al.
Gauls adorned their homes with the heads of fallen enemies, although they kept them on their horses during battle

Thanks The -L- .

No problem. I adore posting on UM. Its my favourite site plus it is No1 site when you want to discuss these kinds of things.
Recently  I met few people on UM that usually post in abovetopsecret.com. They claim that ATS is best site and they want me to wrote there. My question was if ATS is best why you came here.
Its childish discusion but then again Im childish too.

Back on your post and Islam.
Although I found Islam scientist to be realy stunning and trough my history learning and research I stumble upon many of them with numerous "firsts" I must admit that Islam civilization dont have nothing that originate from them. Islam originate from Arabs and they were tribes. As Khalid ibn Walid (what a military comander was that) conquer lands for his master they spread Islam and adopt culture of people they conquer. For example if you go in Tunnis you will notice that everyone has Fatima hand /Hamsa. And if you ask anyone there or tourist that went there everyone one will tell you thats Islam symbol/ Arab origin and stuff. Truth is that Fatima hand is Chartage symbol and it can be seen on graves of fell Chartagians.
What also stunned me that Arabs didnt wont to built roads instead they built Mosques to counter Europe and their churches.

Its good to be back on UM. My vacation is over.
