MACEDONIAN TOURISTS SURPRISED IN GREECE



Regional.

"For the Skopians with the MK sticker. Be ashamed! You are criminals who steal the history of other people! You are slav's who don't have a history! Macedonia is and was always Greek! Go home! You are not welcome and don't return!"

Vest newspaper informs that this message written on photocopied A4 papers was sticked to almost every car with Macedonian licence plates which were parked at the parking lot in front of the IKEA shopping center in Solun (Thessaloniki) last weekend. At the other side of the paper there was printed a map of Macedonia written "Vardarska Banovina" over it.

"I'm sick and tired of the xenophobic and paranoia behavior of some of the Greeks. We come here as tourists, spend money and we don't provocate the Greeks with any of this nationalistic stuff. It's obvious the Greeks don't want good neighbourly relations." said a tourist from Skopje, who himself found such a paper on his vehicle. He added that even if the tourists were angry, they have not complained about it at the Greek authorities.

Macedonian police said that only last thursday and friday about 20.000 people entered Greece at the Bogorodica border crossing. The biggest part of the Macedonians stayed in Greece untill Sunday evening to use their connected holiday days to the maximum.


MD: Besides the tension between these two countries, it seems that only the Greeks have problems, not the Macedonians. We don't think such thing ever happened to Greek tourists in Macedonia. They are always welcomed with open arms. But we must say, that we're glad not all Greeks are like this.

this incident is due to the rise
of foolish national right-wing nazi people in salonica
we are not all the same
i believe that you have also some stupid people lets dont bring
those ideas in favor of the
fanatics
i am Greek macedonian
and i am happy to see friendly neighbors come in our city
we have more in common things such as
traditions
music, relegion
culture
that unite us

We totally agree, and of course we know not all of the Greeks are like that, it's probably a very small minority. Besides our countries diffferences, we all had much positive experience with Greece and Greeks too.

There is nothing 'Nazi' about this message. If anything, it is a very real (and silly) cry for understanding. It simply says that the heritage that goes with the name Macedonia is found in Greek Macedonia and people should not ‘steel it and claim Greek territory’. The message does not claim any territory from ‘Fyrom’, it does not want any harm against ‘Fyrom’ or its 'Slav citizens' (who do have a honorable history). It does not play games by writing ‘Uskub (Skopje)’, or ‘Kalkandelen (Tetova)’.
Perhaps FYR Macedonian blogg moderators and extremists should be as human and non-aggressive as this silly car message when writing bloggs and making statements.
