ONLY 16 PEOPLE AT ENCYCLOPEDIA PROTEST



National.

The massive protests announced for two weeks by non parliamentary Albanian parties in reaction to the publishing of the Encyclopedia drew a crowd of 16 today in Skopje, this includes the 4 reporters present in front of the Government building who managed to interview every protester. Talk about easy day on the job.

It seems Albanians are either not interested in the gibberish that came out of Tirana, Prishtina, and numerous Albanian politicians who reacted as if their house is on fire, or they have better things to do, or both.

The Encyclopedia sparked a 'massive' protest that drew 11 people in Tirana (the protest was organized by a football club named 'Ilirida' - sigh) in front of the Macedonian Embassy, and of course, the burning of the Macedonian flag in Prishtina.

Someone purchased a flag, in order to burn it? In this or any other economy, this is just not a smart investment. Even better, you can buy a Macedonian flag in Prishtina?

These Shiptars are fucking retards. If they don't like it in Macedonia they can go to Greece and see how well that country treats their minorities.

You can either come to Macedonia by yourself and sea how well we f@ck slavobulgarian monkeys!!!

Alfried Wieczorek, Head of German museum says: ALEXANDER the GREAT was mainly GREEK!!!
Mannheim, Germany - The head of a German museum which is set to show an exhibition about Alexander the Great weighed into a dispute between Skopje and Athens on Friday, saying the ancient leader had been predominantly Greek. The modern state of Macedonia, where the main language is a Slavic one, claims the heritage of ancient Macedonia.

"Alexander was predominantly Greek and definitely not an ancestor of contemporary Slavic Macedonians," said Alfried Wieczorek, head of the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums in the southern German city of Mannheim.

The exhibition devoted to the ancient general and ruler, who lived from 356 to 323 BC, opens on Saturday and runs till February 21.

For two decades, Athens has been objecting to its northern neighbour calling itself Macedonia. Skopje has named its airport after Alexander and insists on having Alexander's "star of Vergina" symbol on its coat of arms.

In an interview with the German Press Agency dpa, Wieczorek said, "The latest research shows very clearly yet again that the Macedonians in the days of Alexander were closely related to the contemporary Greeks."

He added, "In antiquity, Greeks and Macedonians could interact because they spoke the same language."

Athens has been insisting that the name Macedonia can only been applied to a province in its own north.

The country of Macedonia became independent in 1991 when Yugoslavia split up. The name issue has held up efforts to bring the new country into NATO and into formal assocation with the European Union.

The museum director referred to findings that its population of 2 million, one quarter of them Albanian speakers and three quarters Slavic speakers, are descended from people who immigrated in the 6th century of the modern era, long after Alexander's death.

fuck off out of other countries politics. Germans mind your own business.

Didn't the Germans lose both world wars? They can't even admit to concentration camps less than a 100 years ago.

But they can speak quite frankly about 2500 years ago!! Nice.

The Greek posting here is a friend of the Germans since Germany made Greece less than 200 years ago.

And so??? What's new? Is any person in the whole world thinks that the slavobulgarians from F'Y'R'O'M are having any kind of connection - except the adoption of the Greek name - with Macedonia and it's history???! That's really rediculous!

and so nothing. Only griks speak of slavoboogarians only griks forced the fyrom acronym in the un.

Macedonians can walk freely all over the world and be accepted as macedonians.

Bad luck Greekos.

The greek-macedonian idiom has only started after 1913. I don't see any other ethnic groups noted as spartan-greeks, athenian-greeks in society.

Gee, could it be that macedonian is a separate ethnicity and culture?

You Greeks can have Hellarse. Macedonia is for Macedonians only.
