The Unholy Alliance and Historical Hellas:

The Fabricated Macedonian Question

 

(An Archaeological Perspective of the problem)

 

 

Abstract

 

The intention of
this work is to provide, from an archaeological perspective, some information
and a scientifically true analysis on the 8,000 years of Hellenic (Greek)
history and to examine what this objective information means to us and to the
world as a whole. We will offer some thoughts and unshaken archaeological
findings and historic events that may help to answer questions concerning
today’s conditions in south-eastern Europe
(Balkans), the borders of the “Christendom” (currently, European Union). It is
imperative that all scholars, politicians, decision makers, students, and
intellectual human beings must have this information regarding an artificial
state, Skopje, created recently between Greece and Serbia by some “unholy
alliance”, because we are responsible, as educators, for all young people of
this planet and we must tell them the plain truth in simple words, away from
any political expediency, propaganda, and anti-scientific delusion. This new
state has unlawfully chosen the Greek name “Macedonia
for its nation and Greece
is objecting their aggressiveness and their expansiveness. It is historically
wrong for them to use Greek names and symbols because they have nothing in
common with Greeks or Macedonians and their old name was Vardarska Banovina.

 

 

I. Prologue

           

            Hellenic history, culture, paideia, Orthodoxy,
and civilization in general have contributed a great deal to the European and
the entire western civilization that we find their seal everywhere, today; but
they have also caused some strong enemies, due to envy. The democracy of
ancient Greece,[1]
the accomplishments of her people,[2]
the great ideas of her moral philosophers,[3]
scientists and artists,[4]
and finally, the dramatic events which have unfolded in the glorious history of
the Greek nation because of its geographical position and its persistence in
Christian-Orthodox truth (the only Truth) have always been a source of creative
inspiration to all nations.[5]
Greece
has truly improved mankind!..

 

The ancient Hellenic civilization is called the
“classical” one; later the word “classical” became the source of standards by
which subsequent achievements can be measured.[6]
“There is a quality of excellence about Ancient Greece that brooks few
comparisons.”[7]
These peoples (Greeks) shared the same language (in an oral and written
literature) and they recognized a common heritage “Hellenes” (
{Ellhne~), which they did not share with other men. They
belonged, as they felt, to “Hellas”.[8]
The non-Greeks were “barbarians”. The achievement and importance of Greece
comprehended all sides of life. “The Greeks did more for future civilization
than any of their predecessors.”[9]  All Europe drew interest on the “capital” Greece laid down, and through Europe
the rest of the world has benefited from what Greeks offered to human
civilization. Alexander, the son of Philip, is one of those historical Greek
figures called “Great”. He was a passionate Hellene,[10]
who believed Achilles[11]
was his ancestor and carried with him on his campaigns a treasured copy of
Homer. He had been tutored by the greatest of all scientists and philosophers (
<<panepisthvmwn>>), Aristotle. Alexander the Great had a staggering record
of success, even though that he died at the age of 33 years old. The history of
Europe and the history of the Western
civilization is the history of the Greek-Christian civilization.[12]
Indisputable, Roman civilization was descended from the earliest Greek
(Hellenic) civilization.[13]
Today, the European Union and the entire West have changed drastically
because of so many influences by different agnostic sub-cultures. [The current]
“European, or Western, civilization originated from the fusion of German
(barbarian) culture and Roman (Hellenic-Christian) civilization during the Dark
Ages from the 5th to the 10th century A.D.”[14]
Of course, history repeats itself. There were even monetary and economic unions
in Ancient Greece, i.e., “the Common of Euboeans”, in 2nd century
B.C.,[15]
where they issued a common currency, but they did not last for very long time
because of the oppression by the strong members on their weak member-states.[16]

 

            History, scientific truth, divine
justice, morality, and human respect are social necessities and they require
satisfaction. Divine Justice prevails at all times on individuals and nations.
Each man enjoys existence according to his labor and his virtues and by himself
he determines his future, his heritage, his nation and thus, affects the world.
Mutual solidarity, joint responsibility, and real love are essential not only
for the life of families, but also for the history of nations and the
coexistence of this Cosmos (
Kovsmo~
= order, ornament). Moral, ethical, and uncorrupted
leadership is necessary to promote patriotism, indigenous value system, and the
rights of a sovereign nation.

 

            Today, the Hellenes (Greeks), even
though that they are members of NATO and European Union (EU), remain
ever-vigilant against the expansionistic plans of all their neighbors and
especially now, since the fall of the communism, Skopjeans have begun to make
claims against northern Greece.[17]
They have spread far and wide propaganda that Macedonians are not Greeks and
they style themselves as the true Macedonians (sic). They have spread lies and
disinformation everywhere in every ignorant of history or controlled by the
dark powers nations, as the United States,
Canada, Australia, and Europe.
But the question remains, how can they be Macedonians without being Greeks?
And, how dared some nations to turn a blind eye to the historic and scientific
truth and recognize this pseudo-state as “Macedonia”? It is obvious by now
what is their objective and their future role in human history.

 

 

II. Archaeological
Evidence

 

Historical and archaeological evidence point to the existence of
Greek-speaking inhabitants occupying the rugged northern slopes of Pindos
mountain as early as 2200-2100 B.C. These Greek tribes –thought to have split
from the main bulk of the Indo-European family in the course of the 5th
millennium- spread throughout the area known today as northern Greece. During
the early centuries of the second millennium B.C. three basic groups can already
be distinguished. First, the South-Eastern group made up Ionians; second, the
Eastern group with its two linguistic subgroups,[18]
one speaking the Arcadian and the other the Aeolian Greek dialect; and third,
the Western group, mainly composed of the populous tribe of the Makedni (
Makednoiv).[19]

 

            Historically, Skopje
(Vardarska) is far away to the north of the geographical borders of Macedonia.
The half of today’s Skopje is part of North
Greece (Greek Macedonia), which is under occupation (we can see it from all the
Greek cities and villages that are in Skopje).
Racially, Macedonians are Dorian tribes (
Dwrikovn te kai; Makednovn e[qno~),[20]
which settled after the 800 B.C. in Macedonia
coming from Epirus
and occupied other related Thracian tribes.

 

During the reign of Amyntas, Philip II, and Alexander the Great, the
Macedonian rival was at its highest point. The fact that the ancient
Macedonians belonged to the world of the Hellenes is hardly disputed by objective
scholars.[21] Recent
archaeological finds, in conjunction with linguistic analyses, the discovery of
scores of new inscriptions with Greek personal and place names, the diffusion
of Greek language and culture throughout the then known world by Alexander the
Great and the Macedonians, establish the continuity of Greek culture in time
and the strong bonds uniting the Macedonians to other Greeks geographically.
The latest finds at Vergina and Dion fully corroborate this view.

 

Archaeological excavations during the last forty years have brought
to light hundreds of ancient Greek cities, temples, palaces, theaters, and
tombs, one of which is the famous tomb of King Philip, and many other treasures
of an exquisite workmanship and design. Chronologically, they cover the most
important periods of the Greek history from the Mycenaean up to the classical
times. Their number has increased to such an extent, that in the years to come,
they will very probably exceed those found of the southern part of the country,
which was wrongly considered to constitute the main body of Greek antiquity.
Therefore, when speaking of ancient Greece,
one must have in mind her northern part as well (i.e., Macedonia, Thrace,
and Epirus) and Asia Minor, too. Today, many archaeological treasures
have sent their message of a Greek Macedonia[22]
to every one who desires the truth.

 

            Hellenic influence can be seen in Macedonia findings at Dion, Pella,
Sindos, Vergina, Aiani, and Northern Macedonia (those parts of ancient Macedonia now
belonging to Southern Skopje-Vardarska and South-Western Bulgaria).
Architecture, sculpture, painting, decoration, artistic forms, city and street
planning at these sites are all Greek! The inscriptions and depictions found on
ancient Macedonia
coins relate exclusively to Hellenic life and art. There are no ancient Greek
coins in existence bearing foreign language inscriptions!

 

            Under the Roman occupation, the
Macedonian provinces thrived and attracted new settlers from East and from Italy, while Jewish communities made their
appearance for the first time, after the destruction of Jerusalem by Romans.[23]
Inscriptions prove, however, that as far as language is concerned most of these
settlers were gradually Hellenized.

 

            Of course, the archaeological
treasures have largely contributed in assessing the achievements realized by
ancient Greeks in Macedonia during the 4th Century B.C., and has led
to the conclusion that throughout this period Greek art and technology had,
actually, reached a climax of perfection; and, what is more, Macedonia the new
Greek super power that has succeeded Athens after its decline constituted part
of the ancient Greek world and a continuation of its civilization.

 

            In addition, important evidence
concerning the Hellenic origins of ancient Macedonians can be found in
contemporary sources. They emphasize the difference between Macedonians (as
Greeks) and others (non Greeks). Macedonians were distinguished from the alien
barbarians around them who were described as warlike, blood-thirsty looters
with tattooed bodies. There are, however, no contemporary sources that indicate
ancient Greeks considered Macedonians as non-Greeks. In addition, two Persian
inscriptions of the 5th and 6th Centuries B.C., present
us with other strong evidence.

 

            Thus, the final blow against Skopje’s claims are the Greek inscriptions of ancient Macedonia.
The only other language found in Macedonia
inscriptions is Latin from the Roman empire.
These Latin inscriptions, however, are very few! The ancient Macedonians were
Greeks. Research conducted at the Center for Greek and Roman Antiquities of the
National Research Institute brings new proof of the Greekness of Macedonia.
These are evidences that emerge from many years of studies of ancient texts,
some six thousand inscriptions with subject the language of those inscriptions,
the names of 10,000 ancient Macedonians, which have been recorded, and the
institutions of the Macedonian nation.

 

            The development of the Hellenic
world by Alexander the Great[24]
and his heirs is well known. Alexander the Great, a Greek-Macedonian, became
Commander in Chief of all Greece,
not only of Macedonia.
His Hellenization plan offered foreign barbarians a Greek education. His heirs
continued his work by promoting the Greek language from the Mediterranean Sea
up to the Indus River,[25]
thereby accomplishing the Hellenization of the ancient world. This period is,
therefore, not called the Macedonian but the Hellenistic period!   

 

            Against every serious historical
study and contrary to the archaeological findings, Skopjeans insist that they
are directly descendants of Alexander the Great. Even though that it is well
known that the basic national identity (language and ancestry) is undoubtedly
Slavic. Are they Slavenized Greeks? This is true for a large proportion of
their citizens, who are Greek-Macedonians and were forced to become Slavs. They
tried to give a scientific tone and base to their ignorant of history
assertions; they have gone in such great lies, which are inconceivable to be
captured by human minds. Trojans an Arian tribe, as every one knows, were related
to Greeks. Until now, we know that Turks claim that Trojans were their
ancestors. But Turks came as nomads in that region after the 1000 A.D. Now, the
Slavs from Skopje
claim them. Were Trojans Slavic people or Turkish?  These two nations (Skopje
and Turkey)
are both visitors of history in these Greek lands that they live (occupy)
today!..

 

            Also, Skopjeans reached the point to
write that they have decoded Linear A (
Grammikhv A) script and
that it was Slavic language (sic). The contemporary “scholar” Beltsefski has
written a “study”, in which she says that Iliad and Odyssey are written in a
proto-Slavic dialect very closed to the so-called Slavomacedonian. In the
American Library of Congress, in the entry “Macedonian language” says that “the
oldest written monuments globally are in ancient Macedonian language” and many
other improbable monstrosities. In other words, they destroy the science of
History and the worst is that found co-conspirators of this unique crime. This
is the evolution of science, today! It has nothing to do with the truth. We see
astonishing rubbishes, here, and without any limits. Pseudo-scientists lead
their students and the entire world to a fabricated delusion. This is actually,
the era of misinformation!..

 

            When the ancient writers were
writing about Macedonians that they were speaking “Macedonian” (
Makedonistiv),
they were referring to a Greek dialect and not to a non-Greek language. In
1986, it was revealed a detachment of an inscription in Pella written in Macedonian dialect (dated
around 380 B.C.). This is the famous damnation (
katavdesmo~)[26]
of Pella. This
inscription, as well as others, which have in the mean time been unveiled,
confirms without reservation the Greek character of the Macedonian dialect.

 

It is depressing for the Greeks to have to prove not only to the
counterfeiters of history, the Skopjeans, but also to the civilized nations of
the world, who ignore history or are occupied with their own
socio-politico-economic problems, that the Greek treasures of Vergina, Pella,
Dion, and of the entire Macedonia are Greek. The area of Skopje
in ancient times was called Dardania and not Macedonia. This name can and must
be given to the Skopjean Democracy.    

           

Lastly, Skopje’s theory, supported by political expediency and
propaganda regarding the control of the region as the ultimate objective, that
the ancient Macedonians were not Greek is not the outcome of a scientific reassessment
of existing evidence, but merely a tool to promote the fiction of Macedonian
separateness even in that remote era. It contradicts the recent finds in
Vergina and Dion of scores of tombstones all of which bear Greek names. These
tombstones provide strong archaeological evidence of the Hellenic origins of
the Macedonians. They prove that even ordinary people, not in any way connected
with the royal family or the so-called “Hellenized elite”, bore ordinary Greek
names like any citizen of Athens, Thebes, Corinth or Sparta. With the passage
of time, almost a millennium, Slavs did settle in Northern Macedonia, but there
has been no evidence whatsoever during the Byzantine Empire or later during the
Ottoman Empire that any of these Slavs in any way merited singling out as a
separate group and still less being labeled “Macedonians”. Greek historians
support the view of most foreign scholars that such Slavs as lived in Macedonia in
the 19th and early 20th centuries considered themselves
to be Bulgarians as a rule. 

 

 

IV. The Anti-Greek Unholy Alliance

 

   On August 15, 1944, the Jewish descent marshal Tito (his true name
was Josip Broz) renamed the province
of Vardarska Banovina to “Macedonia”, hoping in future territorial claims
against Greece.
About 60 years later, an American (of misty origin), Matthew Nimetz, demands
shamelessly from the Greek governments to recognize this Slavic province with
the Greek name “Macedonia”.
What ignorant of history and unlimited impudence that these assigners of the
dark powers (unholy alliance) have! Even worse, the same happened with the
communist leader of ELAS, Aris Velouchiotis (
[Arh~ Belouciwvth~), who
promised to offer Macedonia
to his Bulgarian comrades. This is part of a long historical fire sale and
betrayal of Greece.
 

   

Unfortunately, EU (where Greece is a member since 1981) does not have a
European foreign policy, an immigration policy, and a security policy for its
members; it is divided into small powerless member-states and is manipulated;
presently by the U.S.
and later will be by some other power. A main example can be the Yugoslavia
case, which has created serious other problems; like, the Kosovo,[27]
the Great Albania (Muslim countries in Christian-Orthodox Balkans), and the
famous “Macedonian Question”, with the arrogant Slavs of the South former
Yugoslavia, Vardarska, having expansive prospects towards Greece, the true
Macedonia.[28]  This artificial nation is constituted by
800,000 Albanians, 500,000 Bulgarians, 100,000 Serbs, 100,000 Gypsies, 250,000
Greeks, and 300,000 Muslims of various nationalities. How can this welter of
people call itself as “Macedonians”?[29]
The most amazing was the alliance of Skopje with
the enemies of Greece.
Delegation from Skopje (Vardarska) went to North
Cyprus (pseudo-state
of Turks
) to celebrate
with these conquerors of the Greek Cyprus. Unfortunately, supporters of the
enemies of Greece
became their north “friends”, the pseudo-“Macedonians”. This is a Sacrilegious
or Unholy Alliance (
ajnivero~ summaciva)
among the enemies of the Hellenic Orthodox civilization and its only true
values.[30]
Of course, there will be no future of this fabrication! Europe was felt, too, to have failed in its handling of
the Yugoslav question, which it saw virtually taken out of its hands by
American intervention at the end of 1995, and the deployment of NATO’s forces
as peace-keepers in a way unanticipated by its founders. There were still then,
therefore, major obscurities over the future of European integration.”[31]
Since, for more than half a century, the United States has been pursuing a
grand imperial strategy with the aim of staking out the globe. The U.S.
leaders have shown themselves willing to follow the dream of dominance no
matter how high the risks. Their politics are of global control –from
unilateralism to the dismantling of international agreement to state terrorism-
cohere in a drive for hegemony that ultimately threatens our existence.[32]

 

The unprincipled government of Mitsotakis (N.D.) in
1992 gave the green light for the composite name to this artificial nation with
the word “Macedonia
in it as FYROM. On February 2, 1992, the foreign ministers of the EEC (EU)
rejected the name “Nova Macedonia”.
Also, on October 2, 1992, the U.S.
candidate for the presidency, Bill Clinton, declared in writing that “I support
the recent decision of the European Union according to which the former Yugoslav Republic
was recognized as independent nation with the condition not to include in its
name the word ‘Macedonia’.”
But, on April 7, 1993, the General Assembly of the U.N. voted for the
recognition of this new nation (and Greece
voted the same way) with the name as “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”.
This was the ill-omened day that was recognized (was born) the first and the
only one non-Greek nation with the Greek name “Macedonia”.   

 

Of course, it is well known and provable that, the
name of the province of Skopje (currently and wrongly, FYROM) was “Vardarska
or Vardar with capital Skoplye”.[33]
There is nowhere the word “Macedonia”. During the German
occupation the name of the region was “Banovina Vardarska”. But, as was
mentioned above, Tito gave to this province the name “Makedonija”. Today, the
true history is falsified and delineated.[34]
 If we do not teach the true
history, in a few years no one will know anything about the historical truth.
The new generations will learn only what serves the future plan of this suspicious
global injustice.[35]
Lately, in December 2007, the little state of Skopje
started an embargo for the Greek products because on the boxes it was written
“FYROM” and the customs, there, return them back to Greece by saying that “there is no
state with this name, return to sender”.[36]
Also, the U.S. through “NATO
pressed Greece to let Macedonia join
the alliance,”[37]
but the Greek
government opposed it, at that time. T
he reason
is that Skopje usurps the Greek name “Macedonia” and the Greek history and symbols,
which can be used only by Greece
for her north geographical region and not by any other nation. They are,
actually, thieves of Greece
identity. How is it possible for Skopjeans to live with this big lie? This is a
very serious crime and the international community must be informed and isolate
the robbers of history. Of course, Greeks have the right and the obligation not
to allow Skopjeans encroachers to use the Hellenic name Macedonia for
their artificial state. 

 

Unfortunately, on February 17, 2008, Albanians in Kosovo, with the
support from the U.S.
and the EU declared independence in Kosovo/Metohija without the UN approval.
This is the worst humanitarian crisis in the 21st century and is
going to spread to the entire region. A new Balkan war is smoldering and the
hope of the people of the region is God and their Russian brothers. This is the
plan of the “dark powers” for a very long time and their followers and
subalterns (the unholy alliance, U.S.A., EU, etc.) are committing
this unique crime.[38]
United States is against
Muslims allover the world, except the Muslim Albanians in Kosovo, in Albania, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, and in Skopje.[39]
Amazing inconsistent politics! The EU was split, with Rumania, Cyprus,
Spain,
and several other EU countries condemning Kosovo’s secession as illegal.
Unfortunately, 17 of the EU’s 27 nations, including Germany,
France, Britain, and Italy, said they would recognize
Kosovo.[40]
Also, Croatia, Hungary, and Bulgaria said they would accept
Kosovo independence.[41]
The amazing is that a U.N. court acquitted Kosovo’s ex-premier of war crimes
during the 1998 battle to take over Kosovo, the cradle of Serbia, from Serbs, where it
belongs.[42]
The worst so far was that, Kosovo Serbs were kidnapped in 1999 and taken to Albania to have their organs harvested, a former
chief prosecutor said at The Hague.[43]
Where are the justice and the international law that these international
institutions must preserve? Everything is subjective and unjust in this falling
world of politically correctness.[44]
Americans, already, started advertising vacations in Kosovo as, “Europe’s unlikely charmer, for travelers willing to forgo
some luxuries, newly independent Kosovo offers breathtaking mountains,
unspoiled medieval architecture and stunning monasteries”.[45]
Actually, nothing is Albanian and Muslim, there. Then, how the “democratic”,
“fair”, and “just” west committed this crime against Serbs? The traditional Europe is disappearing day by day with all these
anti-humane actions. For example, two brothers from Kosovo were convicted of
running a drug ring that supplied half of Western Europe’s
heroin.[46]
Also, Serbia
arrested 10 former Kosovo Albanian guerrillas suspected of involvement in
killings and abductions in 1999.[47]
The next major problem with Albanians will be Greece
and Skopje.
This artificial state (Skopje) has almost been
occupied by Albanians and the Great Albania (the dream of Austria and of
the rest of the west) will be a reality. Greece has so far received more
than one and a half (1,500,000) millions, illegal mostly, Albanians, who create
daily problems (robberies, assassinations, rapes, drugs, mafia, and others) and
the Greek government is doing nothing. A report from CIA states that “the
continuing migration of Albanians to Greece creates serious problem to
the country”.[48]    

 

Methodically, the U.S. continues its cold war against Russia and tries to make members of NATO all the
previous members of the Soviet
Socialist Republics
.
Putin warned that Russia
could aim nuclear weapons at Ukraine
if it joins NATO and accepts U.S.
antimissile defenses.[49] Russia is against the declaration of
independence of Kosovo by the Muslim Albanians, which are supporting by the U.S.A.
and the EU. Russia’s Dmitry
Medvedev (the leader after Putin) visited Serbia
and signed a pipeline deal, a signal that his foreign policy would follow
Putin’s policy towards Europe and their
spiritual brothers in Balkans.[50] In a
NATO summit in Bucharest, Romania, on April 2, 2008, Croatia and Albania were accepted as its new
members. Greece vetoed Skopje’s entrance to NATO because of it irreconcilability
by using the Greek name “Macedonia
and the Greek symbols and history for its new and without identity nation.
Three other EU nations (France,
Spain, and Italy) were supporters of Greece’s just rights. President
Bush came out disappointing from this outcome because he was a strong supporter
of Skopje’s membership to NATO and also after
the veto that Germany and France put against Georgia’s
and Ukraine’s
membership.[51]  Furthermore, President Nicolas Sarkozy made a
case that his country might rejoin NATO’s military structures, but he put some
conditions. Among them, France
must maintain freedom to decide whether to send troops to an operation and NATO
would not compete with the European Union’s defense plans.[52] In
addition, Gates told NATO allies that they will be expected to share the cost
of a planned expansion of the Afghan army.[53]

 

Geopolitically, the
developments of the latest years in Balkans and especially, the energy crisis
and the supply of energy by Russia to Europe, made the tiny state of Skopje
particularly important as a satellite of the American politics in that region.
The giant American military base, Camp Bondsteel (3.86 km2), which
starts from Kosovo and reaches Skopje,[54] as
well as the plans of Americans for a second base in Skopje, have as goal to
encircle and control militarily the entire region. For this reason, the U.S.
tries to preserve unity inside of this fictitious nation of a mosaic of people.
George Soros is investing heavily for this purpose and the U.S. tries to
put this pseudo-nation into NATO.  

 

Finally, after the dissolution of Yugoslavia
nothing is the same in Balkans anymore, but the so called “Macedonian question”
would have died at its birth if Greece
had hurried to inform international public opinion with the historic scientific
truth. Greece
did not do this from superficiality or because it suited the politics of her
“allies” in Balkans[55]
or because she was certain that the world could not accept this falsification
of history. This was a major mistake on the part of Greece
and as we can see during the last few years, the Skopje
propaganda has transferred its chair to West Europe, United
States
, Canada,
Australia, and other
countries and it still continues its criminal tactics against Greece and contrary
to the science of history.

 

 

IV. Epilogue and Archaeological
Inferences

 

            The role of Hellenism is historic
and humanistic –and as time passes the vast majority of people will realize it-
because it was able many times in the past to re-orientate humanity. Hellenism
is a global movement of ancient moral philosophy combined with the revealed
truth of Christianity, the Holy Orthodoxy. Its advantage exists in the adoption
of the moderation, the spiritual, the eternal, and the truthful, and at the
same time in the rejection of the exaggeration, the materialistic, the
transitory, and above all the bold lie. How many today understand this unique
culture, which is called the Hellenic Orthodox Culture (
JEllhnorqovdoxo~ Paideiva)? The race, which possesses this culture, has the unique ability to
reach the highest accomplishments and surpass the pathless degeneration of the
human civilization left behind in every historic period. The universal ideas of
Hellenism constitute an inexhaustible source of alternating everlasting values.
The principles of Hellenism that have changed the intellectual trends of
humanity throughout history, have been born to this small geographical region,
which for three thousand years obstinately resists the undermining efforts of
the “civilized” world and the hordes of barbarians, and the current unholy
alliance. One representative of this race is Alexander the Great, the
Macedonian Greek commander of the army who civilized the world and refined and
united Hellenism.

 

            As we have mentioned above, the name
Macedonia
was given by Tito and was used for this Yugoslav province only since 1945, but
it was identified for many centuries with Greek civilization and Greek history.
Their neighboring Greeks are reasonably disturbed when the name of Macedonia
becomes subject to abuse by a region, which ethnologically is not Greek, but
Albanian, Vlach, Serb, Gypsy, Turkish, Slavic, and Bulgarian. It is
characteristic and suspicious that the two first countries recognized this new
government was Bulgaria and Turkey.
The stability of the region would be better served by the denial of recognition
or by saying to these people and the entire world the historic truth. Finally,
if Skopjeans feel that they are Macedonians, let them open their borders and
unite with Greece,
then, they will become Greeks and at the end they will be Macedonians. Consequently,
for someone to become Macedonian, he has, first, to become Greek because the
true Macedonians were, are, and will be only Greeks (
{Ellhne~ th`~ Boreivou  JEllavdo~).

 

            It is clear when, objectively
examined, that the “Macedonian Question” for Greece cannot exist and the
“Macedonian Problem” is a non-issue.[56]
The legal status quo of the northern borders of Greece are determined with international
treaties, like the Treaty of Bucharest (1913), which ended the second Balkan
War, and the Peace Treaties at the end of the two World Wars, of Neigy (1919)
and of Paris (1947). Also, Macedonia
is a geographic concept and not an ethnic notion. In fact, only one country can
identify herself, for historical reasons, with Macedonia. That country is Greece, which has been inextricably linked with Macedonia
for more than 4,000 years.

 

            Unfortunately, Greece has no
territorial claims against neighboring states even though a vast area of her is
still under occupation. She regards all borders, which have been consecrated
with international treaties and which have been legalized (ratified) with the
Final Act of Helsinsky as inviolable. Considering Greek Macedonia, the
ethnological homogeneity of the area renders her un-attackable from the various
claims that have appeared in the past with the pretext of minority demands. It
is natural, for someone to consider the existence of this problem and in the
long-run it can include risks, which are possible to involve, the sensitive
area of Balkans, into new tribulations. For this reason, Greece looks
positively to every effort, which tends to reduce this formerly intense dispute
peacefully and fairly and hopefully the international community will assist her,
without giving up her historic rights.

 

            For these reasons, Greece has opposed the recognition of an
independent nation on her northern border, which will bear the Hellenic name “Macedonia” or a
composite of it. Of course, this does not mean that Greece is against the Skopjeans
right to establish their own independent nation and have their own language,
their own feasible history,[57]
and their Slavic traditions. All people have the right to self-determination of
their future; of course, this choice is confined within the limits of
international law (or legality). Greece, however cannot accept the
use of the Macedonian name by any nation, which is in all other respects
Slavic. The terms “Macedonia-Macedonians” and names of similar relevance belong
to Hellas and Hellenes (Greece
and Greeks). They constitute Greece’s
national and cultural inheritance and as such have been recorded in history and
have been proven archaeologically for many centuries before the appearance of Slavs
in the area of Balkans and especially in the area of Macedonia.

 

            Large sections of countries that
dream the non-existent historically “Aegean Macedonia” were historically under
Greek control and those countries that transgress against Greece today are “inhospitable of
the history”. Greeks will never cease, as the Greek race to claim their lost
national lands. It is their national duty to state matters concerning Greek
Macedonia, both inside and outside of Greece, exactly as they are to
restore the historical truth that expediency, misguidance, and calculating
interest continue to counterfeit and distort. It is necessary for the
preservation of their unique Greek Orthodox Culture, that every one be in good
conscience and that Greece
permanently “guard Thermopylae”. This duty
must not be the subject of a transient alert or mobilization, but the constant
care of the current and future citizens of the historic country, Hellas, especially with the latest trend of
globalization, which does not respect the borders and the sovereignty of independent
nations.

 

            The fact, that the ancient
Macedonians belong to the world of Greeks, is very difficult to dispute any
longer. The new archeological treasures in connection with linguistic analyses
and the findings of a great number of new inscriptions –all Greek– with rich
samples of Greek names prove that there is no discontinuation of either
cultural or linguistic of the unity of the Macedonians with the rest of the
Greeks.[58]
Also, the spreading of the Greek language and the Greek civilization and
culture to the entire known world from the Macedonians of the Alexander the
Great constitutes the most categorical confirmation of this event. This event
is confirmed every year by the new archeological findings that are coming to
light either at the large excavations of Pella, Vergina, Dion, and Sindos, or
in dozens less known, like in areas of Voion, Aeani, Kozani, Kastoria, Florina,
Edessa, Aridaea, Kilkis, Kavala, and of course, Thessaloniki and Chalkidiki
(Petralona), and others.

 

            Greece,
every Greek, and every one who has an objective knowledge of history are
opposed to Skopje’s name as “Macedonia”. Skopje’s peoples are not properly a distinct
nation, but belong, by language and culture, to one or another, or perhaps all
three of the neighboring Slavic states (they have nothing in common with
Hellenic Macedonians). Recognition of Skopje as
Macedonia
is historically, scientifically, and morally wrong. Skopjean propaganda in the
New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and other papers around the world is
unconscionable, constant, and provocative.[59]  If Skopje were to give up the policy of
misappropriating the term “Macedonians”; if it were to adopt, for instance,
another term, (such as “Vardarians” or “Dardanians” or “Sclavinians”)[60]
in order to designate the Slav inhabitants of South Yugoslavia and possibly
certain émigré groups who share her views; the Greeks, naturally, would have no
quarrel with this state of affairs.

           

Nevertheless, despite differences with Skopje on these issues, Greek-Serbian
relations are positive on many domains as both sides realize the mutual
benefits of good, friendly, and cooperative and neighborly relations. But, both
nations realized that Skopje and Kosovo have
been put between Greece and Serbia by other
powers (the unholy alliance), which are against these two homodox nations.
Greeks, Serbians, Bulgarians, Russians, Rumanians, and all the other Eastern
European nations have something in common that is not common to this world, we
cannot find it anywhere else. They are “brothers in Christ”, Christian Orthodox
nations and have to be united.[61]
We hope that Skopje
will realize its historic and anti-scientific mistakes and go back to its true
name, “Vardarska”. After the collapse of communism, the cosmos awaits these
peoples’ contribution to its history and Greece can play once more an
important role in their re-Christianization and promotion of peace and
prosperity in the Balkans, which have to be independent from any foreign
influence.

[17] In 1948, Cominform, the first official
forum of the international communist movement since the dissolution of the
Comintern, put into action a plan to take hostage to communist countries
children from Greece
during the Greek civil war. The aim was to re-educate the children as well as
blackmail the populace and the Greek government towards reaching a settlement
leading to a partition of Greece
and the subsequent creation of an internationalist "Macedonian"
Republic. This move has favoured by the Yugoslav dictator Josip Broz Tito and
had been a Comitern policy aimed at destroying the national states of the
Balkans through the creation of internationalist republics. Today several FYROM
sources claim........ or at least believe the abducted
children were FYROMacedonian.

[23] The Siege
of Jerusalem
in the year 70 A.D. was a decisive event in the First
Jewish-Roman War. It was followed by the fall of Masada
in 73 A.D. The Roman army, led by the future Emperor Titus, with Tiberius
Julius Alexander (many Roman leaders were considering Alexander the Great as
god) as his second-in-command, besieged and conquered the city of Jerusalem, which had been
occupied by its Jewish defenders in 66 A.D. The city and its famous Temple were destroyed in
70 A.D. The destruction of the Temple
is still mourned annually by the Jewish. The Arch of Titus, depicting and
celebrating the Roman sack of Jerusalem.

since that year and have contributed greatly to Greece’s undermining, as they
claim.

 

[24] Alexander the Great Hellenized the entire world because he was a
Hellen ( 
{Ellhn); he did not
Macedonized the world and no Macedonian language was spread anywhere because
such a language did not exist.

[25] With this language the Gospel (=good announcements) was spread to
all over the world.

I do not think that there is any need for comments for the
Macedonian dialect. It is just a plain Greek language. Then, what the
pseudo-historians are saying is just a big lie. There are many academics, which
have proven that the Macedonian dialect is a North Greek dialect. Many
Classical Lexicons support this view, too.
 

[27] Kosovo said the IMF voted to accept it as a member, a major but

[39] Switzerland had
a referendum on November 29, 2009, to ban the construction of minarets on
mosques and 58% voted in favor of the minaret ban. (The Wall Street Journal, December 2, 2009, pp. A1 and A12). Unfortunately
for Europe, Saudi Arabia
is pouring hundreds of millions of pounds
into Islamist groups in the Balkans, some of which spread hatred of the West
and recruit fighters for jihad in Afghanistan. According to officials
in Skopje,
Islamic fundamentalism threatens to destabilise the Balkans. Strict Wahhabi and
Salafi factions funded by Saudi organisations are clashing with traditionally
moderate local Muslim communities. Fundamentalists have financed the
construction of scores of mosques and community centres as well as handing some
followers up to £225 a month. They are expected not only to grow beards, but
also to persuade their wives to wear the niqab or face veil, a custom virtually
unknown in the liberal Islamic tradition of the Balkans.
Government sources in traditionally secular Skopje,
said they were monitoring up to 50 Al-Qaeda volunteers recruited to fight in Afghanistan. Classified documents seen by The Sunday Times reveal that Skopjean officials are also
investigating a number of Islamic charities, some in Saudi Arabia, which are active
throughout the Balkans and are suspected of spreading extremism and laundering
money for terrorist organisations. One of the groups under scrutiny is the
International Islamic Relief Organisation from Saudi Arabia, which is on a United
Nations blacklist of organisations backing terrorism. It did not respond to
inquiries, but has previously denied involvement in terrorist activities,
calling such claims “totally unfounded”. According to its website, it works in
32 countries to provide relief to the victims of natural disasters and to carry
out humanitarian, health and educational projects. “Hundreds of millions have
been poured into Skopje alone in the past decade
and most of it comes from Saudi
Arabia
,” said a government source. “The
Saudis’ main export seems to be ideology, not oil.” Sulejman Rexhepi, leader of
the Islamic community in Skopje,
said that a number of mosques had been forcibly taken over by radical groups.
Four in central Skopje
are no longer under the control of the official Islamic authorities. New imams
claim they have been “spontaneously” installed by the “people”. “Their
so-called Wahhabi teachings are completely alien to our traditions and to the
essence of Islam, which is a tolerant and inclusive religion,” said Rexhepi. In
some mosques believers are being told that Skopje,
which sent 200 soldiers to Iraq
and Afghanistan, has been
tricked into supporting a crusade against Islam spearheaded by Britain and America. Radical clerics have shown
footage from Afghanistan, Iraq
and the Palestinian territories to illustrate their claims that the West is
waging war on Islam. Rahman, a 35-year-old cab driver from Skopje (the capital of the state) said, he
had stopped going to his local mosque since it was taken over by extremists.
“Following the Haiti
earthquake the new imam said, God would punish the West for their wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq with natural disasters,” he
said. Bekir Halimi, an imam trained in Syria, runs Bamiresia, an Islamic
charity that has been investigated for alleged terrorist links and money
laundering. Police raided its offices but failed to find any evidence of
terrorist links. “We are fully entitled to receive funding from both
governmental and non-governmental organisations from Saudi Arabia,” said Halimi, who
refuses to name the sources of his funding, but rejects any suggestion of
criminal activity. Skopje’s law enforcement
agencies warn that the European Union and America have failed to recognise
the growing problem of Islamic extremism in the Balkans. Baroness Ashton, the
EU foreign policy chief, has declared stability in the region to be her top
priority, but local politicians complain that the EU and NATO are reducing
their presence in troublespots such as Bosnia and Kosovo. In February 2010,
Bosnian security forces raided a village strongly influenced by Salafi
extremists and found a weapons cache. In raids elsewhere rifles, bombs, and
rocket-propelled grenades have been uncovered. The West has put considerable
political and financial efforts into helping build democracy in Bosnia
following its civil war in the 1990s. Saudi organisations have also asserted
considerable influence, giving more than £450m to build more than 150 mosques
and Islamic centres. In Skopje,
Fatmir, a former disc jockey, explained how he became an adherent of Salafism.
The father of two has grown a beard and instructed his wife to wear a niqab. He
now makes his living by selling Islamist literature. “Ours is the Islam of the
21st century,” he said.
(Sunday Times, March 28, 2010).

[40] These nations as anti-Orthodox were, are, and will be against
Orthodoxy and against Orthodox nations. It is nothing new in the behavior of
these heretics. The biggest enemy for Europe
has been proven to be so far, the European Union. Of course, the 57-country
Organization of the Islamic Conference supported the independence of Kosovo,
which is predominantly Muslim and they had sent mercenaries fighting against
Serbians during 1990s, committing innumerous crimes, but EU and the U.S. ignore all
these because of their hatred against Orthodoxy. Turkey
and Albania
offered formal recognition to this illegal pseudo nation. (The Wall Street Journal, February 19, 2008, pp. A1 and A6). A State
Department official said the following outrageous excuse that, “U.S.
recognition of Kosovo was an exception to a policy of discouraging secession”.  (The
Wall Street Journal
, March 13, 2008, p. A1).

[41] The Wall Street Journal,
March 20, 2008, p. A1. This was expected because Croatia
and Hungary have territorial
claims against Serbia,
but the Orthodox Bulgaria doing it is surprising. Unfortunately, Bulgaria
is going always with the powerful ones (Germans, Americans, EU, and not with
what is right or legal).

[44] The followers of lies wanted to legalize and impose their delusion
to all human beings by invented the term “politically correct” for covering all
their wrong doings (politically correct

absolutely wrong). 

[45] The author writes: “The newest nation on earth is Kosovo, the
war-ravaged region of the former Yugoslavia. … At the foot of the
breathtaking mountains ringing Kosovo lie two magnificent Greek Orthodox
monasteries designated as Unesco World Heritage sites. … Most Kosovars will
look at you warily-until you tell them you are from the U.S., which led the bombing of the
rampaging Serbian forces in 1999. Pristina, the capital, has a Bill Clinton Street
and a Robert Dole Street.  … Pristina is Kosovo’s drab capital, whose
name refers not to an era of abundant street cleaners, but rather to the
ancient king of the Ilyrians, the ancestors of Kosovo’s ethnic Albanians.

controlled reports!

 The lies, the propaganda, and the false identity
for the conquerors Albanians continue by this poor western writer (Stan
Sesser). This is the problem of the unreliable West, they try to rewrite
history to justify their crimes against humanity.

[51] U.S. has built a
military base in Kosovo of about 4,000 m2 and it is building another
one in Skopje
and for this reason it wants to accept these new “anti-Balkan” nations in NATO.

2008, pp. A1 and A8 and A1 and A7.  Many
people are questioning the role of NATO today, after the end of the cold war. The Wall Street Journal, April 2, 2008,

[52] In 1966, President Charles de Gaulle withdrew France from NATO’s military command as he sought
to reassert France’s
independence from the U.S.
(The Wall Street Journal, June 18,
2008, pp. A1 and A8).

[53] The U.S.
tries to enforce the payments of its costly and deadly mistakes, policing the
world, on its poor NATO allies. (The Wall
Street Journal
, September 20-21, 2008, pp. A1 and A11). 

[54] The United States Army has been criticised for using the
base as a detention facility, and for the conditions faced by the detainees,
there. In November 2005, Alvaro Gil-Robles, the human rights envoy of the
Council of Europe, described the camp as a "smaller version of Guantanamo"
following a visit. The German newspaper Weltwoche reported, "A
German report by the Berlin Institute for European Policy, produced last year
on behalf of the German army... is particularly critical of the role of the US,
which had obstructed European investigations and which had been opened up to
political extortion by the existence of a secret CIA detention center on the
grounds of Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo...” In response, the US Army stated that
there were no secret detention facilities in the Camp. While there is a
facility on Camp Bondsteel
that was used in the past to hold detainees from the war in Kosovo,
Iraq and Afghanistan, it
is no longer operational and no one is held, there.

 

[55] The “allies” care only for their counties’ interest and not for Greece’s
interest. The Greek politicians are responsible for the safety and security of
their country and have to say “NO” to any ally or enemy, who act against Greece’s
interest.

[56] Professor Stephen G. Miller of Berkley
University sent a letter to the Archaeology Magazine, where he proves
that the region where Skopje is today was
Paeonia and Skopjeans have no right to call their nation “Macedonia” and themselves
“Macedonians”. See, Christianiki
Bibliographia
, Issue 42, Year 38, January-March 2009, pp. 21-23. 

[57] Skopjeans try very hard to rewrite
history, but a nation cannot be founded on a historic lie. The most significant
post-Yugoslav change in the myth of descent was the attempt to include the
ancient Macedonians in the national narrative. This effort was clearly related
to Greek opposition against the name Macedonia
for the new state as well as against the use of the 16-pointed sun of Macedonia, associated with Philip II of Macedonia,
as the state symbol. Skopjean historians challenged Greece's
exclusive ownership of the symbols and territory of the ancient Macedonians in
order to back up their claims to the name and land of Macedonia
and to create their own ancient national patrimony. In his introduction to Nade
Proeva's Studies on the Ancient Macedonians, Petko Kuzman wrote,“Macedonian
history cannot be treated otherwise than as a historical continuity from the
creation of the name Macedonia
until today.” This discourse is intended to substantiate the Skopjeans’ claim
to a homeland, to the territory of their ancestors, and to a long national
pedigree. The landscape of Macedonia
is instilled with ethnic virtues reaching far back into the past that can be
mobilized in current disputes over claims to a particular territory.
Significantly, the first volume of the revised seven-volume “History of the
Macedonian People” devotes more than two hundred pages to ancient Macedonia and
the Roman occupation, while the first edition, published in 1969, allocated
only some twenty pages to that period. The main claim is that the ancient
Macedonians were not Greeks, but a different, non-Hellenic people who joined in
the ethnogenesis of the Macedonian people by melting into the Slavs who had
come to the region in the 6th and 7th centuries. Actually, this is a desperate
process by Skopjean pseudo-historians to create a non-existent nation.

[58] There are and it will be another series of articles by the author
examining the Macedonian question from these perspectives.

[59] The question here is, why are these papers and the majority of the
other news media that determine public opinion so biased? How can we trust
their subjective news and their prejudice information? Of course, in academics,
we have to search only for the truth and nothing else. Dark powers are
financing these papers very heavily.

[60] These names have been used in the past for the inhabitants of Skopje and as toponyms of
that region. The ancient Macedonians annexed Paeonia, but they never annexed
the region around Scupi (Skopje),
which belonged to Dardania. The historically correct name for Skopje, then, is Dardania. T
he name of the province
of Skopje (currently and wrongly,
FYROM) was “Vardarska or Vardar with capital
Skoplye”. See, Kallianiotis (1992, pp. 58-59).
