I'd like to add some thoughts in regards to the Heil salute, as mentioned in the last post. The common view is that this salute was taken from the Roman salute, which was used by the Italian fascists. However, this may not be true. It is known that Himmler himself held the view that Romulus and Remus, the ancient founders of Rome were themselves of Nordic blood, and that they had adopted the salute from the North. In the book Der HeilGruss - Richter stated he believed the salute originated with the ancient Aryan tribes which later went onto found Egypt. It is well known that the Scythians used the same salute, and that the Scythian people are distant ancestors of the Germanic race. Scottish clans also descend from the Scythian peoples - an old Germanic word "Scutten" referred to both Scottish and Scythian folk. Hezbollah from Lebanon are known to use the Heil salute. They themselves describe this salute as an ancient greeting, which is probably the same salute mentioned by Richter.
Interestingly enough, many American right wing conservatives like to compare the salute with the National Socialist one, in an attempt to associate the two, to discredit anti-zionist opinions. However before the USA adopted its modern military salute - the Heil salute was commonly used across America, and was known as the Bellamy Salute. The American Senate itself is based on the Roman senate - including the Roman Fasces!
