@ Mr. Chalkidis: Great to be informed about your Greek public school attendance and about your open mind especially confronting other Greeks about their spell mistakes in a foreign language! (as well as their history and ancient Greek language knowledge)
HA, did not cross your mind that I don't care about it?
I have spell checker it was so easy to correct it but I did not care.
Did not cross your mind that I was outrageous because of you?
Did not cross your mind that I may have "dyslexia"?
Don't you get that Geo-political games do not permit us to be so liberal, especially neo-liberal or communists?
My "personal" attack to you had to do with the expressed idea that you are Turkish because you were born in area occupied by Turkey... so if Kurds occupy in a few years Smirna or Minor Asia then you will change and you will become Kurd ?
You responded to my comment about the attendance of a foreign school with attack on my history knowledge and Greek ancient language? Where are you coming from? My comment was related to modern Nationality theory that is taught to such schools and had nothing to do to insult you. Your life for so many years abroad probably influenced the way off thinking (to the extent my life in Greece and abroad did the same)
By the way I don't feel that I am a sheep or a victim of propaganda (as you may be) since 1992 I have study almost all the FYROM's claims, sites and papers and I was astonished. So well documented that I had to dig deep in newspapers of other countries, to the library of US congress, etc and study more and more to find the truth. Guess what? the truth was depicted in the next comment of mine, about the facts that took place around 1810 - 1930 ac. The truth is that some bilingual Greek Macedonians, where forced / convinced to believe that they are not Greeks and that they are a separate Nation not a Greek tribe, in order to be maintained under the Othoman (don;t confuse Othoman Turks with modern Turks, to the extent that you mentioned we should not be confused with ancient Greeks) Empire or to be annexed either to Serbia or Bulgaria!
I did not make any insulting comment for you and you did so many, so you are real Greek my friend actually you may be "a modern Ελληναρας" and probably you get paid to do FYROM's propaganda as some other Greek "Macedonians"!
We cannot survive and prosper in a Global world where others protect their undercover Nationalism or Capitalism and we (Greeks) think and act for the protection of Globalization.
Who issued maps including their country up to Olympus?
Whose country's Constitution asks for the liberation of occupied territory?
Whose country children are taught about the occupied Macedonian territory?
I can write on and on, but I am not sure if you don't know them or you pretend that you don't know?
In any case WAKE UP OR QUIT FROM FYROM's payroll!
They are Slavo - Macedonians and as they have the 35% (that's their territory compared to total Macedonia area) right to claim the name Macedonia for their country they don;t have the right to claim the history of Ancient Macedonia! That right belongs only to Greece, my friend!
Why they refuse to be named Slavo-Macedonians?, even Kiro Gligorof proposed that back in the early 90s and there are many scholars in Skopia who still propose that. The problem is that their recent prime ministers are Nationalists and fascists!
1. You are write... I don't know / recall any of the ancient Greek language and I personally felt that it was a waste of time to learn it! (but the word Sarissa, is not "Modern Macedonian", it may come from the Greek word "sarono", even in my village in Mani they used the world "sarothro"!)
To the contrary, I strongly believe that all the World should read and be taught Greek Ancient philosophers and historians, especially the modern Greeks!
2. I maybe don't know better English than you, does this make you a good person and me a bad one?
