1. Slavic language and slavic culture is what constitutes the ethnic identity of Fyrom. distortions of a connection to antiquity are politically motivated by deluded politicians. the slavic inhabitants of FYROM are not related to Ancient Greeks (Alexander & Co). They have been misled by historically uneducated politicians. The only thing that FYROM has is the name - Macedonian, and that has to be surrendered in time. It will give them closure to a very sad chapter in their history. Cultural brainwashing & theft. Any progressive government will have to change their name in order to progress and in order to be accepted by the world community. Slavic culture should be proudly embraced and nurtured. Its only natural. SLAVO MACEDONIA, NEW MACEDONIA, VARDASKA, any of these will do. The days of walking behind the FYROM banner should end.

  2. Goce Delčev was a Bulgarian born in Greece. The Slavic Macedonians have claimed him which is fine for they too are ethnic Bulgarians. They also claimed from Bulgaria They also claimed the Bulgarian Andon Lazov Kjoseto as their own. Again that’s fine for they are ethnic Bulgarians and speak the same language. They also claim the Greek Alexander The Great as their own which is not fine for he was born in Greece to Greek parents. They also claim Mother Theresa as their own which is not fine for she was Albanian. When will the historical distortion in this country stop? Only they know. Cultural identity is controlled in Europes own theme park called Skopje. Identity building gone wrong and it’s only going to get worse unless they have a Slavic awakening and revolt. Raise arms and liberate yourselves from the conservative government that has attempted to brainwash its population. The Albanians need to stop taking bribes from Gruevski for only they can stop him.
    Demolish your cheap Italian reproduction statues and take back your country. Burn your Greek symbol flags. Embrace your Bulgarian heritage and become part of the European community. Thank the Greek s for alphabet. Apologies for your governments behavior. Pay retributions for cultural theft and all will be forgiven.

  3. the quicker they give the Albanians what they want with their official language demands the better off this so called country will be. The social democrats should form a coalition with the Albanian parties and rid them of the irredentist and corrupt VMRO-DPMNE party. Name change should be demanded by the EU and Slavic culture should be promoted again. “We are Macedonians but we are Slav Macedonians. That’s who we are! We have no connection to Alexander the Great and his Macedonia. The ancient Macedonians no longer exist, they had disappeared from history long time ago. Our ancestors came here in the 5th and 6th century (AD).” Kiro Gligorov – the first president elect of Fyrom

    Croatia and Hungary of recent is that what the Serbian Govt want to continue to do?

    if it wants to exercise its rights over Kosovo do it in another way by not attacking Macedonia
    it can ask for influence by bankrupt Greece or even approach Russia
    have a go at Montenegro first, then the EU and United States who took Kosovo away in the first place
    and stop blaming Macedonia
    for what end to satisfy the Greeks

    The interviewer has used a hidden camera as people refused to release interviews in albanian to albanian tv channels. When asked how come they speak albanian and who taught them the language they reply their mother taught them. Although they are macedonians.
    The area is called Upper Reka (Reka e Eperme/Gorna Reka) [link] including Mavrovo and Gostivar.
    There are no investments in those villages and people have left so soon there won’t be any albanian left with whom you can argue on what your great/great/grandfather did on their great/great/grandfather. The problem is solved. That knife was the brainwashing you all have been going through as you don’t even recognize anymore your roots. Many Serbs and many Albanians don’t even know which ethnic community they belong to. Now you didn’t understand but I think Serbs from Serbia proper have now that you spoke up fully understood what is means to see your people being treated like the Jews during WWII.And one understands his neighbor’s pain only if he goes through the same thing and this was what I wanted to say with the knife and the old man.

I have issues with Albanians, but also I'm a critic that doesn't say Albanians were not present in the Balkans 2000yrs ago.

The Swiss kind of federalization is not a bad idea I think and it might be the only solution the only way out if you want this country to exist. Years ago there was a debate regarding the encyclopedy of the macedonian academy where albanians were descrived as tribes who had come from the mountains and from albania.

Allowed NATO to bomb poor Kosovar Serbs (who by the way are genetically closest to us in FYROM) from its territory. Then they recognized Kosovo?! Hello!!!!!....and now you’re pissed because the toll tickets say FYROM??...please, give me a break and grow up. Come on bro, there’s no excuse for that behavior, and you can’t blame the pressure from the west for recognizing Kosovo. Look at the daily pressure Serbia receives because of Russia! You don’t see them caving in and joining the bogus sanctions against them. There is absolutely ZERO backbone in the government of FYROM period. Look, I may have an issue with my brother, but you better believe if you come trying to knock him I will defend him. As far as the example of music……if I comment so much against a nation, how does it make sense to listen to their music? If you have integrity you just won’t!

    If Serbia wants respect from Macedonia then Serbia has to earn it. Firstly the Serbian FM can start buy not using the offensive FY...M word.

    As for Kosovo recognition, Macedonia had no choose, every government formed in Macedonia has had to be in coalition with a minority Albania party, so to keep the peace Macedonia had to reluctantly recognise Kosovo.

    As for the name issue, why is it that no one has any issue with modern Arabic speakers in Egypt calling themselves Egyptian (with no prefix), but Slavic speakers who have lived in Macedonia for over 1,000 years can’t call themselves Macedonian? But somehow Greek refugees from Asia Minor who were settled in southern Macedonia 90 years ago (1920s) can call themselves Macedonian at the exclusion of everyone else?

  21. At the end of the day, there is absolutely no loyality from Macedonia towards Serbia. It must be the 'church recognition' and the fact Yugoslavia took all major weapons out of Macedonia in 1992.

    As someone from northwestern Macedonia (Sar Planina), it was always disappointing to most of us from that area in how MK treated Serbia. Macedonia deserves all it gets now from the Albanians! The MK govt allowed NATO to bomb Serbia, and in return the so called albanian refugees spit on MK in 2001.

    Macedonia needs to change that name immediately to a factual historical name; such as 'Paonija'. I can't stress that enough! The current slavs are a mix of old settlers (vlachs, illyrian and Slavs that came there).

    The "decent" country of FYROM, as you called it, is not only unafair to Serbia. It is also unfair to Greece. On the one hand, FYROM condemns the greater Albania, on the other hand FYROM wants a greater 'Macedonia'. You say you support them only because they are Slavs. That shows what kind of man you are. I supprt Greece, because that's the fair thing. I say that Kosovo is Serbia because that's the fair thing. I support Russia in Donbas because that's the fair thing.
    If you can't understand that, you have no place here. In all our battles we died for what's fair. For our freedom. We never died to harm another nation and steal their land. Other nations did that to us. If you can't understand that, you have NO PLACE HERE.

  23. Makedonec,
    No, about northern Epirus you are wrong and I know it first hand from Serbs who live in Albania (there are Serbs living at the north). Northern Epirus is not claimed by Greece, but there are ethnical Greeks who live there. Now that Albania created problems to them, Greece threatened to veto Albania's membership in the EU and as far as I know the EU backs Greece. That I know for sure, because it happened a few weeks ago. I also heard that Edi Rama agreed to comply with Greece's requirements, but I don't know what those requirements are or any details.
    So Greece didn't have a good reason to veto Albania in NATO. Now that Albania gave Greece a reason to veto for the EU, Greece will veto, unless Albania complies.

    If you think that Greece or any other NATO country could stop USA from bombing Serbia, then you really don't know what NATO is.

    About number 3, international bodies and security organizations does not mean EU and NATO. Afterall, Greece did not even support Kosovo's membership in UNESCO. That says it all.

    Your country has been supportive of KosMet's independency since day 1 and you are here trying to convince us that Greece, a country that does not recognzie KosMet, does. I hope you realize how ridiculous you sound.

    “Give us a reason why Greece would veto Albania in NATO”
    Northern Epirus and Chemeria are contested territories in Albania and Greece. Albania has territorial clames with the “Chemeria” region in Greece. Greece could veto Albania very easy, but WANTED them in NATO.

    “Greece, the country with the strongest Army in the Balkans,needed Milosevic to invade you? “

    Firepower was never an issue, as I stated, Macedonia had a non existant army.
    Both Greece and Serbia could conquer Macedonia fast. The difference is that Milosevic was already in war, his hands dhirty. And Greece needed a pretex and a contex to enter in the Yugoslav wars,

    The international backlash for Greece of such an attack would be much worse. So it was more simple for Greece just to “join” ald leave Milosevic take blame for it.
    That is why Greek PM. Constantine Mitsotakis asked Milosevic to attack Macedonia.

    The Independence was FIRST agreed upon with Milosevic. So its is hardly thinkable that he wanted to “attack to get back Macedonia” when he could set up a staged unification referendum with one phone call. Greece on the other hand as events continue with all the “issues”, still has big wish Macedonia to disappear.

    It's not the first compliment that I have from you. I too believe that the Shqiptars have big problems with self identification but I have no idea what their roots are so I offer no versions. Illiryan one does not work because in mediaeval sources like Orbini or Malala the Illyrians were mentioned as a Slavic ethnos.

    Also I stick to the point that the first nations started to appear in 17-th century only. Simply because before that all people were submitted to the single world empire of the Rjurikovici. In fact since 12 century the history of mankind was the history of this one family. Ethnical groups were receiving their names after their military commanders and all the kings were just governors of the territories. So it's a big question who were the Greeks, the Macedonians, the Shqiptars, Serbs, Croats ect.

    There are plenty of peoples who have been formed as nations by now. They obtained their national mentallity, culture, territory, religion ect. So insisting that Gagauz people is Russian or the Bashkirs are Brits is simply stupid. Despite their Russian or British happlogroups. Same with the Macedonians, Shqiptars or Greeks. Those are formed nations and we must accept it. History is in the past so we mustn't mix it with the reality we live in.

    Regarding the "truth" that the one of you suggests about Milosevic: Let me ask you something, do you seriously believe that Greece, the country with the strongest Army in the Balkans,needed Milosevic to invade you? Are you nuts? Only the Greek Air Force could take you down in 3 hours. And they still can easily, since you want to hear it.
    Milosevic asked Greece to bomb you because he already had too many enemies to deal with, inside and outside Jugoslavia. It is also possible he was trying to make Greece participate militarily in the war, but that's my opinion.

    About our friendship with you, my only friends in FYROM are the ones who identify themselves as pure Serbs. The rest of you, who are the majority by far, are Bulgarians who live on Serbian soil. You are using your problems with ALbanians to approach us, because you are alone. You have no allies inside or outside the Balkans. The fact that we support you over Albanians does not mean that we will ever support you over Greece. That will never happen.

    In 1993/94/95 Greece and Serbia had developed actual plans to invade and partition macedonia, however the problem with partitioning Macedonia was that both greece and serbia believed that they could not contain any conflict in Macedonia without also bringing Bulgaria inside the tent (bring them into the fold), however Bulgaria was not interested in making any (secret) agreements with Serbia and Greece to partition Macedonia without also having an agreement in place with Romania and Turkey as they believed that they could be betrayed again by Serbia like they were in the first Balkan war 1912, and risked being attacked again on all sides like they were in second Balkan war 1913, however Romania refused to make any deals with bulgaria fearing the precedent it might have made in there proxy war with Russia over Moldova (transnistria) (who knew Balkan politics was so complicated ah). So in essence Macedonia survived the 1990’s because of Romania, and the acknowledgement (by the powers that be) that any conflict in Macedonia would have likely not have been contained and would have engulfed all of the Balkan states in a full scale war not seen in Europe since WW2 and could have resulted in both Greece and Serbia being on the losing side so they backed down.

    The plan for Macedonia was simple, allow Greece to frustrate macedonia’s independence by disputing Macedonia’s name, flag, constitution and ethnicity. By doing this both Greece and Serbia hoped that Macedonians would willingly want to re-enter the safety of a new Yugoslav federation (minus Slovenia and 2/3Croatia) or if they refused, make it easy for both the Greece and Serbia to invade and partition Macedonia.

    However the problem both greece and serbia encountered in Macedonia was even with the name dispute and greek blockade on the Macedonian economy, the Macedonian government and people still wanted to pursue full independence and were not interested in joining any new Yugoslavia.

    Its great to see your keen interest in Macedonian history, keep it up. I Suggest you read ‘Unholy Alliance: Greece and Milosevic's Serbia’ written by Takis Michas regarding Serb/Greek plot to invade and partition Macedonia in the 1990s.

    What happened in the 1990s is a little more complicated than you might think.

    During the breakup of Yugoslavia between 1991-1992 Milosevic did contemplate holding on to Macedonia but did not want to start a war on two fronts (with Croatia to the north and Macedonia to the south which would have likely dragged in Bulgaria and Albania in to the conflict) and so Milosevic choose to focus the serb forces/militias on gaining territory in Croatia and BiH on a slow burn military advance, and decided to play politics in Macedonia by initially removing all military equipment and infrastructure from Macedonia effectively leaving macedonia defenceless in a hostile environment (i.e. surrounded by the four wolfs) and planned to re-enter Macedonia through diplomacy, or force if all else failed, once the conflict in Croatia and BiH was finished. Milosevic’s original plan was to re-create the so called ‘third’ Yugoslavia once the wars were over (incorporating Serbia, Krajina(1/3Croatia), Republica Srbska (2/3BiH), Montenegro and Macedonia).

  32. Macedonian, I second Grobar's claim that Milošević asked Greece to invade FYRM and split the country between Serbia and Greece. That information was not aired in Serbia, since Milošević had the total control of the Press, but any Serb who had family members in Greece during the '90s can verify it and moreover any Serb who went one step further and gathered information about the war, after the war ended, knows it. It was 1 - 1.5 year before Karadžić visited Athens and during his visit Greece accepted to provide him full support.
    To return to the story, Milošević didn't want to start a war with you, because he felt too weak to open a new front. He asked Greece to invade you and split the land between Serbia and Greece and in the (new) Greek borders he would move Serbs, so that Greece wouldn't have to border with offspring of Bulgarians who were dreaming to steal her land. Greece refused through her PM and to my best of knowledge the Greek citizens agreed with his refusal. If there is one thing I blame Greece during the Yugoslav war, that's the one. Then Milošević suggested to Greece that Serbia, FYRM and Greece form a new Federation. Greece refused again. Then Milošević flirted with the idea of creating a Federation with Russia and Belarus.

    As for us being friends with you, we are not friends with people who recognize KosMet or with people who want to harm our Greek brothers. Get over it.

The Albanoi Albanians Arberore Arbanite Illyrians are recorded as a separate language and heritage HUNDREDS OF YEARS before the creation of the modern Greek state. the revolution of 1821 is a good reminder of you Anatolian Ellethara having freedom because of the brave deeds of the Albanian warriors of Morea which gave you freedom from slavery.

    its you modern Romioi rums Greeks which have always been on the wrong side of history, you supported turks to put in prison all the Albanian revolutionary heroes and take the lands of native populations. Greeks had their own pro Nazi groups which fought against the communist Greeks. you supported the imperialistic pan Slavic agenda against the natives since the last 150 years and now all of a sudden you want to go in B92 like some cheap propaganda magicians with tricks to argue for Macedonia after you helped slavs take these lands.

    you don't have a real ethnic heritage preserved from the archaic culture of Europe. you only have religious identity same as all Anatolians and Egyptians which arrived in modern region of gr4eece with the population exchanges.

    It's a good idea to dig the Osmani archeves as it was the only Horde that has never been occupied by th West. The Ottomans also falsified history but the amount of the documents and the witnesses have restricted their manuever. So it must be a very good place to seek for the truth. But knoledge of Turkish language won't help because it is 80% different from the Osmani.

    As for the historical Albanians those were Rus people from Volga and Oka rivers' region. Yet national minorities here were part of the Horde of the Whites. At least 20-30% of the Mamelukes were of Ossetian and Adiga (Kabarda) origin. The rest were Rus Cossacks of the Cherkassi Great Princes. After 1517 when Selim I Yavuz (Grozny) destroyed the Misr (Egypt) Sultanat boys from the Balkans were also drafted to the Mamelukes.

    But most of the Mameluke Sultans were of Cherkasy Rus Princes (now Voisko Donskoe) and Caucasians. They all had Arab names but none of them knew Arab even in 19 century. Arabs were just slaves and they still are barbarians with almost no Nobel Prizes in science. Most Arab scientists of the past were Slavs.

    Horde was a military state so military people made the elite of the Great State (Великое государство) and when I say that the proto-Shqiptars were inside the Horde I mean it. They could make careers and so could the Hungars, Caucasians, Greeks and other non Slavs who belonged to the Kshatria / warriors' caste. Balkans was the stronghold of the Horde.

    Do you know how many tons of food, water and help supplies Macedonians send just for the floods in 2014 to Serbia?

    Macedonians and Serbs are big friends. Macedonians will allways be grateful that Macedonia managed to exit Yugoslavia wars with no bloodshed. There are so many mix marriadges Serbian-Macedonian in Macedonia.

Greeks are more ethnically related to TURKS, Anatolians and Asians than anyone else in Europe. don't try to play your dumb Greek magician tricks here, you know better than anyone else that Albanians are the descendants of the ancient Macedonian, Illyrians and Epirote tribes as stated by various historians from the last 300 years. you modern Greeks were still called as Romioi rums with no mentioned connection to ancient tribes of the city states or surrounding regions.

  44. Your second story makes me certain you are not Serbian, but a Greek propagandist here.

    A Serbian would never say this:

    “Milosevic went to Greece and asked Greece to bomb you and then divide the land”

    But lets assume, this total bullshit you are saying is true for a minute:
    You are saying Milosevic asked for Greek help, since he could not win the non existant Macedonian army?

    Is that what you are saying? Or he was kind and offered Greece some free land?

    Or Milosevic, after Greeks denied, wanted, but could not win over the non existant Macedonian army, so gave up his idea?

    The facts were little different:

    Greek PM. Constantine Mitsotakis in 1992 asked and proposed, in several letters to Milosevic, to attack and split Macedonia. Milosevic did not approve this.

    Macedonia made agreements and understanding with the Serbs in the Yugoslavia wars so there was not a single bullet fired in Macedonia. It all went piecefully, and you are now claming nonsense stories that Milosevic wanted but could not (lol) attack Macedonia. PLEASE

    Macedonians and Serbians were, are and will be big friends, redardless of Greek efforts for the contrary.

    Greeks show clearly they are big Albanian freinds and prefer Great Albania over Strong Slavic states like Serbia or Macedonia.

  45. Makedonec, you are so full of BS.
    Greece does not have a Kosovo Embassy in Athens. Go ahead and google "Kosovo Embassy in Athens" and if you find the site of such "Embassy", let me know. There is an OFFICE of Kosovo in Athens which is NOT an Embassy, since Greece does not recognize KosMet (as opposed to your country, which does).
    Few months ago my sister went to a store in Belgrade to buy tea and the tea label was "Made in Kosovo". Same story happened last month in a store that sells shoes. I am more concerned with the "made in Kosovo" products which Serbia accepts to "import" from our own land, rather than Athens' having an informal Kosovo office.

    Greece did NOT bomb Serbia, on the contrary Greece and the Greek citizens did everything in their power to help Serbia, despite USA's public threats against Greece.

    The only country which sent food and meds to the Serbs in RS was Greece. Most of us still keep a bag of Greek salt or a bottle of Greek olive oil as a souvenir.

    Your real enemy is inside your country. But you were too busy building fake statues of heroes that have never been yours. You were too busy revising the Serbian and Greek History. You were too busy hating Greece, though if Greeks had wished to invade and occupy your country they would have done so in less than 24 hours.

    We have a common enemy you and us. But this does NOT make us allies. And we will NEVER EVER go against Greece. If you seek to find allies to harm Greece, talk to the Turks.

    1/ Before 16 century when paper was introduced they wrote on lamb leather. It was very expensive so most words were deprived of the consonant sounds. Thus word BELI/BALI was written as BL. Slovenski was the official though not the only language of the Horde. Some of them (Arab, Persian) were written from right to left. Very often by mistake in such regions they wrote and read Slavic words as they did it in Persian and Arabian. It happened to word BELI/BALI that became LB. Reports coming from Middle East contained LB meaning WHITE. It became normal and during the Onnoman conquest of Europe in 15 century both forms (BL and LB) were used to mark territories of the WHITE (ALBANIAN) Horde.

    2/ White was the main color to mark the colonized territories in Europe. In other regions the Horde used other words. But in Europe and ME WHITE was main marker of the lands, rivers, mountains, cities ect. I found more than 200 such toponymals, ethnonymals ect. Most often Slavic BL and it Arab LB form were used. Sometimes correct consonant sounds were used to fill the words sometimes not. Besides the Slavs also had different dialects. So some of them said BELI , some said BALI ... Same with the mamelukes who brought the Arab LB version to Europe. Some said ELBA, some said and wrote ALBA ect. So even mountains in Iraq, Iran and Caucasus were called ELBRUS everybody understood that those were ELB/ALB RUS = BELAYA RUS = ALBANIA ...

    Bulgarians are nt famous for their IQ level, but you go beyond any record, pal.

    1. Greece NEVER bombed Serbia and even the 5 year old in Serbia know that. And I have another story to tell you: In Spring 1999, FYROM offered its land to NATO, so that NATO would bomb us. Then NATO wanted to transfer weapons from the NATO Base in MACEDONIA, the region in northern GREECE, to FYROM and start bombing. The Greek public found out. Do you know what they did? Greeks went at the borders and closed the borders for two weeks with their cars and trucks. No NATO truck could move aything from Greece to FYROM. Bill Clinton was threatening Greece every single day and I have watched those videos with Clinton's threats to Greece. In the end, NATO used the ships in the Adriatic Sea to bomb us.
    STOP LYING, YOU HUMILIATE YOURSELF.

    As I said, Greece had no legal reason to veto Albania in NATO. You know, If Greece could veto without a legal reason, Greece would start with Turkey. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to get that.

    And now I have a 2nd story to tell you: In 1992, Milosevic went to Greece and asked Greece to bomb you and then divide the land between Serbia and Greece. Greece could take your entire country within 3 hours. Yet, Greece refused. And if you were smart, you'd try to fix your relationship with Greeks, because they can be your strongest ally in the region against albanians.

    Here's a rare map of the Reconquista of the 15 century to which events of 1444 belonged. After 100 years of occupation of Europe the Horde faced a severe problem. Because of the famous Roman routes contacts between the faraway region of the empire became easy. The price for it were the epidemies that killed millions from China to Europe. In Veliki Novgorod they decided to introduce administrative bortders inside the Horde. All lands south of Caucasus, Ukraine and Balkans were submitted to the second capitol of the empire in Constantinople. Movement outside the new broder was restricted. In parallel to that a great army was sent for carantine cleaning of the cholera territories inhabited by the Horde's people and troops. Those were lands an the west and in the south of Europe. All were cleaned and inhabited by new people from the Horde. This is the time that most of the Balkan peoples appeared here I think.

    the things you listed are peanuts compared.

    2. Greece did not VETO Albania in NATO. Greece wants and prefers Albania in NATO.
    Your “brothers” just gave the Albanians in the region big powers. Greece just made your biggest enemy, Albania, part the biggest military alliance in the world. Chameria and Northern Epirus are contested lands between Greece and Albania. They HAD all the reasons to veto, my Serbian friends, just Greece WANTED to give power and strength to Albania.

    3. Greeks are afraid of the Slavs and Strong Slavic states way more than they are afraid of Great Albania. Greeks were very afraid of Yugoslavia. And Greeks are afraid of Strong Serbia and Macedonia. That is why Greeks and NATO destroyed Serbia. That is why Greeks take their Albanian friends in NATO.

    4. Now Greek services are trying to make Serbia and Macedonia from friendly become hostile.

    5. Greece with NATO bombed Serbia and made Kosovo. Greece has Embassy in Pristina. Greece recognizes Kosovo Passports. Greece wants Kosovo in NATO and EU stated by Nikolaos Kotzias in 2015.

    I know what Qafir means and I know where Qafiristan is.

    And by the ways the Pashruns who dominate in the region call themselves NIM QORAN MANILI = THOSE WHO ACCEPTED HALF OF QURAN ... Though they created the Taliban the Pashtuns in a way remain qafirs because their national Pahtunvalai law is dominating on Islam laws sometimes.

    In 90% cases Christianity and Islam were imposed on peoples. Sometimes peacefully and sometimes not.

    It's a big problem for me to communicate with you because many things I accept different. Say Turkish language for me is a modified Tatar that was once Rus language as well. Osmani was a great language but in 1932 Ataturk replaced it with an absolutely new language that they called Turkish. I'll give you a link about it all. And it will be a Serbian article.

    Kalashi people mentioned in the film must have Rus rootes because of their H, L, R1a1, G2a happlogroups. Kalash is a metal pot - same word as Kalashnikov. Cossacks had to stay in the colonies and it wasn't their choice. The recruiting and service system of the Ottomans was a 100% copy of the Horde. Most of them stayed in far away places because after 25 years when they could return their friends in their homelands were grandfathers already while cossacks could only fight and were not adopted to civil life. So monasteries were built for them everywhere. They gave birth to many nations like the Kurds, Afghans, Panjabis, Uzbeks, Kirgis, Kazakh, Uigur, Turkmans, Baluch ect. R1a1 happlogroup makes 25-80% in the mentioned peoples. Same on the Balkans, Turkey and the ME where R1a1 makes 10-35% of the henomes. Many Europeans wrote that in Persia and Anatolia (Natol) Rus people made about 20% controlling all vital points like ports, bridges, roads ect. Evidently Shqiptars could be inside the Slavic Horde and leave their descendants too. As I saw you have a lot of J1 and J2 happlotypes and same 20% of the Rus R1a1. J1 and J2 are Semite markers widely spread only in Dagestan. G2a is also Semite and most spread among the Ossetians, Cherkess (both mamelukes) and among Iranians ana Pashtuns. All that cocktails could appear only during the Horde's conquest that in a great degree was peaceful.

    Baltic elements won't look strangers if you examine the Slavonic happlogroups of the locals. Even word BALT means WHITE in 2 out of 3 languages and thus Baltic Sea = Sea of the Whites. So the Estonians, Lithuanians and the Latvians were Albanians too.

    Same with Arabian language developed first as a secret code for the hordes to communicate in the colonies. Arabian ABEL = A-BEL = BELI = WHITE ... Prefix A was often used in words (Amurat, Arab ect.) that Arabs, Turks failed to pronounce ... Arabs (A-rab) were slaves so they could not be Albanians.

    I twice placed here Serbian toponymals in Tibet found by a Serbian traveller in 19 century but none of the Serbs showed any interest. They Just gave their likes and their poor comments to forget about it forever. Meanwhile mediaeval Tibet was dozens of times bigger than the current one. It included 20-30% of China, Viet Nam, Tailand, Birma, Laos, Kampuchea ect. But nobody asked me to give the full list of the toponymals or the links. Because it will contradict the history they already have.

  68. @ Rote The language is called “burushaski” and it is a strange mix of albanian, slavic, iranian and baltic elements.

    It will stop looking strange as soon as you begin to see the thngs under the angle that I do. There were two waves of colonization of Asia by the Whites. Persian (like Arabian, Latin) was one of the artificial languages of the Horde and it was in a great degree developed on the basis of Slovensli. That's why it is so close to the Slavic languages. It was close not only phonetically but also geographically to the Balkans as it was one of the two corner stones of the Osmani language. Besides During Ivan III Grozny the empire was divided for 2 parts and Stanbul became responsible for Africa and South Asia.

    So "a strange mix of albanian, slavic, iranian and baltic elements." was not strange at all. You will open your eyes if you look different at ordinary things. What you think Iranian element could quite be taken from Osmani language.

    Dadan is a Persian/Osmani for "give" while DAD is the past prfect form of DADAN. Say Baghdad = Bogdad = Bozidar = God Given. There are many Persian words in the European languages but they do not notice them or call them some phantom Indo-European ancestor. So if the Shqiptars were inside the Great Horde it was natural for them to borrow words from Slavic, Arab and Persian languages.

  69. It was only yesterday that I was writing about provocation being a Balkan pastime. No doubt Dacic stuck out his tongue and claimed that his dad was bigger than the Macedonian Foreign Minister's dad. Any chance that these well paid grown men could act like adults just for once and maybe concentrate on things that affect the daily lives of their citizens rather than this load of old bollocks? How many jobs will this create? How much will the respective GDPs grow as a result of this row? Do your jobs.

But this has nothing to do with the actual status of "Macedonia" The problem here is that both albania and serbia recognized macedonia for inercy, without thinking about the consequences. The main consequence for albanians is that we became a minority while greeks who are very smart and have contacts with macedonia's albanians have always said that the only solution would be recognizing this fake state by its only name- federation of albanians and slavs! two entities, two ethnic communities, not a majority and a minority. you want to backstabb albanians now?

    Greeks gave themselves the name Romoi rum to protect against christian prosecution ??? your Romioi rum ancestors were the radical byzantine Christians that went out of their way to systematically destroy any signs of the old cultures and heritage because it was deemed as anti Christ. and now all of a sudden you wish to present the romioi people with religious identity that destroyed the old culture as saviors of Hellenism... this is a sick fucking joke.

    During the period of the Romioi rums rampage against the old cultures, the Albanians were considered by all byzantine chronicles that mentioned them as the native inhabitants of Illyria Epiri and Macedonia, which can be seen by the remnants of published Roman literature:: Dictionarium Latino-Epiroticum

    Even if the Albanians came from the Caucasus region, which their is no evidence of , they still inhabited Morea and the mainland hundreds of years before the modern Greek identity was created in the church. The old Illyrian-Epirote and Macedon heritage is survived and preserved among the Albanians, and in some cases the Arumanian Vlahs. You can not change this reality with bullshit golden dawn neo Nazi wannabe propaganda.

    There's only one explanation that I was writing here several times and it explains why you still call yourself Albanians. There was only one chance for the Shqiptars reach India. They had to be part of the Slavic Conquest of the world. There are several other ethnical groups that stayed there after the Great Albanian Horde.

  83. The character of Moses comprises: the Golden Horde Khan of the first half of the XV century Olugh Mokhammad (of Kazan) or Ulug Mehmed (the Great Mahomet or Muhammad) the founder of Kazan (=Medina?); the Ataman (Ottoman) sultan Mehmed I (1402-1421); the Ataman (Ottoman) sultan Murad II (1421-1451); the Ataman (Ottoman) sultan Mohamed II the Conqueror(1451-1481) ...

    This very epoch is the same 'ancient classical' epoch of the wars of the Macedonian King Phillip II the Conqueror. It is at the same time the epoch of Kham Olugh-Mehmet in Russian History, circa 1420-1450 ...

    The Biblical epoch of Joshua Ben Nun, who succeeded Moses, is the time of the Ottoman conquest, beginning with seizure of Czar-Grad in 1453 by Mohamed II, and culminating in the peak of the golden age under Suleiman the Magnificent (1520-1566). Suleiman was known as AL-QANUNI. It means the GREAT KHAN, as QANUNI AND KHAN only slightly differ in pronunciation ...

    This epoch is also the epoch of Alexander the Great of Macedonia who continued the conquest of Phillip II. The figure of Alexander is multi-layered. He embodied both the events of the XV century (Olugh-Mohamed I, Mohamed II the Conqueror and also of the XVI century. Including events from the life description of Andronicus-Christ of the XII century ...

  84. 4.3. The war between the Russian “Mongol and Tartar” Horde and the “ancient” Alexander the Great.

    Let us try and analyse the legends of the enormous wall allegedly built by Alexander the Great to shut off Gog and Magog ... some of these allegedly “ancient” accounts of Alexander the Great and Gog and Magog appear to have been written in the Western Europe around the XVI-XVII century. In CHRON1 A. T. Fomenko demonstrates that among the real events that later legends of Alexander the Great were based upon we find the Ottoman (or simply Ataman) conquests of the XV-XVI century in particular. The father of Alexander, or the famous “ancient” Philip II is most likely to be identified as Sultan Mohammed II, whose lifetime dates to the XV century A. D. – possibly, a Slav (a Macedonian?).

    However, when the above events were dated to the XVII-XVIII century by later chronologists, whether deliberately or accidentally, Alexander of Macedon became the protagonist of the entire epoch. His original, or originals, must have lived in the XV-XVI century. We cannot provide them with any finite identification. Most likely, Alexander of Macedon was an Ottoman (Ataman?), qv in Part 5; however, he became credited for nearly every substantial accomplishment of that epoch, including the construction of the Great Wall as a line of defence against his own kin (the Ottomans/Atamans/Cossacks, also known as Gog and Magog) ...

  86. *7) Macedonians in “ancient” China.

    The so-called “ancient Chinese history” contains many references to the nation of Qidani – the alleged descendants of the Syanbi, or the Serbs, qv above ([212], page 131). Furthermore, the Qidani are said to have been a South-Eastern Serbian tribe ... the nation in question might identify as the Macedonians, the southern neighbours of the Serbs. The languages of the two nations are extremely similar, and the Macedonians were occasionally referred to as the Southern Serbs ... The Qidani are said to have founded a state in China in the X century A. D. ... We shall return to the history of the Macedonians, or the Qidani, somewhat later. For the meantime, let us just point out that the language of the Macedonians is believed to be the prototype of Church Slavonic, which had been used in Russia as the official language for a long enough time. Also, the actual creators of the Church Slavonic Cyrillic alphabet, the “Solun Brothers” Cyril and Methodius, are believed to hail from the city of Solun located on the territory of Macedonia, and are most likely to have been Macedonian. Thus, there are parallels between the ancient Russian culture and the Slavic culture of Macedonia ... the state of the “Qidani who had fled China” became the progenitor of the future “Mongolian” Empire, or The Horde (Russia), which we can identify as the Great Russian Empire of the Horde ...

    “The claim on the part of the Slavic Republic to the name Macedonia and to its inhabitants' descent from the ancient Macedonians represented, at best, a theft of [Greek] national property, heritage, and identity, and, at worst, a thinly veiled irredentist aspiration to the [Greek] territory the Slavs [by themselves] termed as 'Aegean Macedonia”
    Plutarch, Parallel Lives, Alexander the Great "I do not distinguish among men, as the narrow-minded do,both among [us] Greeks and Barbarians.

The boy's father since he was the Governor of Burria accepted them with a lot of pleasure and explained to them many interesting things and told to them that beyong the monuntains on the Indian part live our people in a place calles Kaushet(Qaushet). i think that they didn't settle there after the murder of Achilles(Cleats), but they remained there when Alexander the Great decided to come back from India to Babylon and older soldiers who were Phillip's soldiers, bedore leaving he asked them to go through Hindu Kush, an easier way for older people. Whereas he left himself, Petale, India, through the desert of Makran, a very difficult and dangerous road. Whereas half of the army leaded by Narkos was aksed by him to go through the Indian Ocean, thinking that he will be connected with Nile and will come out in the Mediterranean Sea.

God knows what made the Serbs spoil their relations with this brave people. Because Serbs themselves are in a similar position. It won't improve the already good relations with Greece but it will tribute the anti-Serb front. Looks like Dacic is also deputy FM of Kosovo de facto rulers and of BIH and of Croatia and of Bulgaria.

    Most of the UN members have problems with self identification but it's the first time when one member privatized to say nothing that it's Rus word ... I hate to use words Rus and especially it German version (Russian) when it comes to the period before 17-th century. I prefer word Slavic that is more correct. But this time it is really a Rus word coz Alexander of Macedon means AlexanDar Of The White River. White Rivers (Volga and Oka) were the heart of the Rus civilization and if someone insist on his Greek origin let's talk about his conquest of Siberia and Asia in 15-16 centuries.

    Greeks never kept swords in their hands as they were caste of the Orthodox Brahmans called priests since 15 century but if someone is persistent enough I have plenty of questions that had demoralized many Greeks here. But please don't be agressive as I feel deep sympathy for the Greeks and don't even try to provoke me for any anti-Greek statement. Greeks and Macedonians are two close though different peoples.

Macedonia's way of thinking has been changed since many years ago and it has forgotten the balkan attitude, now is more ahead, modern and less balkan, that's why it has problems with the countries who think more like hundreds years ago. Well, wake up Serbia, it is 21st century, you can't make ethnic cleansing If you don't like certain people. No one will support that. If you think sending a train to Kosovo with nationalist stickers that propagates hatred is a healthy for a normal country, then you shall never join EU nor any international organization. Maybe you should try to synchronize with the middle east. You'll fit more with them in that area.

  113. If the "Macedonians" insult us serbs with the name "Republic of Kosovo", we should have no choice but to call them by what they really are and that's FYROM. This has nothing to do with Serbian-Greek friendship, but fighting for our national interests and the truth!

    Just remove the "and the truth" part because you just wrote yourself that if the "Macedonians" were not insulting you, then you would disregard "the truth" and call their country "Macedonia".

  115. Leaving all politics and identity making on the side for 9 seconds ,
    The only people that actually deserve to be called Macedonians today would be the Albanians and any Vlachs within it .

    I know it hurts ,but that;s what happens in the game of Identity making .The Greeks accomplished this in the last 150 years and my Slavs are simply just late to that game .

    Greek = English < from Latin Graeci < from Greek Graekos = the mythological son of Zeus and Pandora.

    "...Greek meant Orthodox religion..."
    That's untrue.
    Greek meant: Greek name, hence inherited by Greek ancestors (no Turk, Slav or Albanian had Greek name), Greek language and Greek religion. All these were characteristics that 99.9 of those who had them were Greeks.


    On 2/
    "...They tell us as if Cyrillic was made out of the Greek alphabet..."
    Though I don't give one shit where the Cyrillic alphabet was based on, it's a fact that it was based on the Greek one.
    It is also A FACT that the Cyrillic alphabet was created in order for the Slavic people to became LITERATE, as until then the Slavs had no alphabet.
    This is of most importance for any civilization.


    On 3/
    "...ALEXANDAR was the correct name..."
    Stop delusioning; the name is ALEXANDROS, it is Greek and is being composed by two Greek words THAT ARE STILL IN USE 3,000 straight years:
    - alexo= to repel, to defend
    - andros = genetive of andras = man
    Defendor of man.
    No other culture than the Greek, used Greek words to compose Greek names, which were being used only by Greeks. To be continued...

    You're a Slavic speaking, with a Slavic name Slav, not Macedonian. And your Slavic country is settled on Paeonia not on Macedonia. READ:
    Stephen G. Miller, Historian, Prof Dr Berkeley University
    [[[Who is referring to the self-declared "Republika Macedonija" which fabricated maps attempting to present PAEONIA (the region this country is settled) as supposedly united region with Macedonia-Greece (Alexander's homeland), and to the banknotes this country circulated with the Greek city of Thessalonike on them]]]; I wonder what we would conclude if a certain large island off the southeast coast of the United States started to call itself Florida, and emblazoned its currency with images of Disney World and distributed maps showing the Greater Florida..."
    Ljubomir Frckovski, Leader of FYROMacedonia's Socialist Political Party, former Minister of Internal Affairs, ON CAMERA
    One small group of (FYROM's) historians and political fraudsters managed to impose throughout the (FYROM's) media, a hysterical discourse about our identity, which created a great damage to the state. They turned Macedonia in their project, I would say into a country of ridicule, and everybody laughs at us..Fraudulent history concepts cannot help us. These people are trying to present us, as super-ancient Slavs, who never migrated, but always were here and used the Slavic language that we speak. These frauds and hallucinations varies from meaningless, to absurd, to totally absorb illusions."

    I feel sorry for and I went thruogh it 7-8 years ago ... You need this book. They give plenty of documents and facts that Tamerlane and Mehmet II were one man ... both Russians. In this book there are texts of the prayors for the sake of this Rus Saint worshipped in the Russian churches and they give also portraits of the two. Unfortunately in the link you will not find the full text.

    For the time being I can offer only the Russian text.

    4/ Greeks were always good friends of the Slavs and they played the second big role in the military Horde state of ours. Greeks were our Orthodox Brahmans (B-respectfuls) during the so called Early Christians and our first Patriarchs during the Apostolic Christianity launched by Prince Dmity I Ivanovic aka Constantine I Great. So it is strange to hear the agression in your words. You sound rather Shqiptar and if so I can tell you about an Albanian village called Athens now. But Albanians most often were Slavs too.

    5/ After Prince Dmitry called himself Constantine he moved his religious capitol to Tsargrad in 1380 and took his Greek Patriarch. After he was killed on Kosovo Field in 337 (current 1389) his descendants ruled from Bosphorus. But in 1445 the Greek Patriarch flew from the civil capitol of Veliki Novgorod to Constantinople. Soon Slavs launched war that brought them to Constantinople in 1453. Some of the Greeks like Nicolas V ran to Vatican to provoke war against the Horde.

    6/ It was then that the name of Alexander of Macedon appeared first. Never before it had been mentiones in any source. More than that in the oldest manuscript about Alexander there are notes made where parallels between Mehmet II and Alexander were too evident. Shall I tell you that the 53 day attack at Constantinople started from the place known as Macedonia ? Think twice before you aggree.

  130. HELLENIC SWORD let me be a Slavic shield:

    1/ It's a big question if the "ancient Greeks" and Hellenic were absolutely the same peoples. Because Greek meant Orthodox religion but not an ethnical identity. Besides there were no nations in the current meaning before the 17th century when the Great Roman Mongol Slavic Horde disintegrated.

    2/ They tell us as if Cyrillic was made out of the Greek alphabet but it's a total absurd. You cannot pour 2 liters into a 1 liter bottle. So it's strange to hear that 42 Cyrillic letters were made out of 24 Greek ones. I guess it was quite the opposite to say nothing of Glagolitsa and other Slavic aphabets.

    3/ ALEXANDAR was the correct name composed of Greek ALEXIS and Slavic DAR (gift) while in word MACEDON there's nothing Greek at all. It is composed of prefix M and two Rus words (AK = WHITE) + (DON = RIVER). AK is a Turkic word now but in old times Rus and other peoples of this country spoke more Turkic than Slavic. Word DON is an old Rus word for water and river and it is still used in the same meanings by the Ossetians who always accompanied our hordes. Letter E is called "izafet" (like Halk-e Don) showing that word AK belongs to DON as it is in Persian and some other languages. Altogether we have M AK-E DON = OF THE WHITE RIVER i.e. of OKA (AKA) or of VOLGA river that both mean WHITE. Other "Greek" words like POSEI DON = SOW/PLANT RIVER are constructed the same way. Let's talk about it.

    continued - do not relax !

  133. There are no ancient records which can relate to modern Greeks Macedonian, but yet here Greeks are trying to brag for things that don't belong to them and they cant even answer for them without resorting to frantic propaganda and lies.

    There are no modern Greeks which self identity as Macedonians. modern Greeks had no idea what Macedonia was up until about after the 20th century.

    even your modern ethnic name ellada ellenes ellethara doesnt have any logical meaning per heritage. its just a bullshit modern name used by anyone who has been baptised by the church.

    Greek are a romioi rum modern Greek Anatolian rum from Minor Asia and modern Greeks don't have nothing to show fro preserved ethnic heritage from ancient tribes of Europe.

  134. You're Slavs, not Macedonian. The Slavs entered the Balkans 1,000 years after Alexander's death. All these below define the identity of a nation:
    - your language = Slavic
    - your names of persons = Slavic
    - your names of places = Slavic
    - your alphabet = Slavic (Cyrillic)
    - your culture = Slavic
    - recorded history = Slavic
    Slavs

  138. Why won't FYROM recognize Serbia by its correct borders? Greece is Serbia's friend and was ostracized by NATO allies when it would not only refuse to participate in NATO's aggression on Serbia, but actively leaked classified information to Belgrade during the war. Many Greek humanitarian workers would purposely show up where the heaviest of bombs fell so that this could influence NATO to stop bombing there. Serbia has no right to forget this.

    But the main reason Serbia should stand with Greece on the name issue is because they are RIGHT. The people in FYROM are Slavs, not ancient Macedonians. The vast majority of the ones I met are good and decent people. But they have been brainwashed by their elite regarding their identity and it's caused huge rifts with countries that should be their allies i.e. Serbia & Greece.
