News on Turkish Murderer of Cypriot demonstrator Solomos Solomou

For Immediate Release: February 24, 2009

Contact: Nikolaos Taneris, New York, Tel. 1-917-699-9935

NEW YORK—The Cyprus Action Network of America (CANA) continues to distribute
reports on the Turkish Murderers who today and every single day roam free,
without remorse and without a modicum of justice, on our illegally-occupied
towns, villages and streets, every single day, in Cyprus.

Solomou's murderer: 'I'd do it again' report by Hellenic Antidote blog

In an interview published Sunday in the Greek newspaper Proto Thema, Kenan Akin,
the Turk wanted for the murder of Solomos Solomou during the Dherynia protests
in August 1996, expresses no remorse over the killing and says he would do it

Akin, who is standing in forthcoming 'parliamentary elections' in occupied
Cyprus as a candidate with the Freedom and Reform party, which is part of the
coalition 'government' in occupied Cyprus, revealed in the interview that he is
regarded as a hero among Turkish Cypriots and said he doesn't understand why so
much fuss has been made over the death of 'a dog', as he refers to Solomou.

Above is the report that appeared on RIK news on Sunday (my English subtitles)
with comments from President Dimitris Christofias, leader of the House of
Representatives Marios Karoyian, and Solomou's father, who draws attention to
the fact that the actions of Akin, a settler, with connections to the Turkish
secret services and who at the time of the murder was 'minister of agriculture'
in the occupation regime, were not those of a lone 'barbarian' – as Christofias
rightly calls Akin – but the product of the occupation of northern Cyprus, which
is rooted in barbarism and that, every day of its existence, cultivates and
justifies barbarism.

The Italiote Reality

The Hellenic identity of Southern Italy is one that most Southern Italians or ‘ethnic Italiotes’ fail to embrace or realize. In recent times some ethnic Italiotes have begun to advance the concept of a Southern Italian identity, however, they have failed to capitalize on their Hellenic origins. These Hellenes, italianized or not, can not be past over solely because they are no longer Hellenic speaking or Orthodox Christian in faith. To deny them their own place inside Hellenism against all the cultural and historical connections between Southern Italy and Hellas, would be a crime against Hellenism. The region, whose true name is ‘Magna Graecia’ or ‘Megali Ellada’, has been an important part of Hellenic civilization since the eighth century BC.

In Antiquity, Italiotes partook in all aspects of the ancient Hellenic Civilization, with representatives from their many city-states participating in the Pan-Hellenic Olympic Games. These rich and powerful Italiote cities would rule the countryside, most important where such places as Neapolis (Naples), Syracuse, Capua, Acragas, Tarentum, Croton, Elea, and Bari. Until the rise of the Roman Empire, Magna Graecia was nothing more then an extension of the cities states of Central and Southern Hellas.

During the middle Ages, Magna Graecia became a favorite destination for Byzantine Christian Hellenes fleeing the east, whether during the Gothic War or the fall of Constantinople. As the Western Roman Empire fell and was divided between Barbarian tribes, part of Magna Graecia maintained its allegiance to Constantinople and Christian Hellenism. This Eastern Roman province known as the Catepanate of Italy was ruled by a local governor, with his residence in Bari, an ancient Hellenic city from antiquity. Unfortunately this small hope for Hellenism in Italy would disappear and be replaced by the Kingdom of Two Sicilies, which would help begin the ‘italianization’ of the region. Although not a Hellenic kingdom, it did maintain a sense of southern Italian identity across the ancient region of Magna Graecia, even if it wasn’t Hellenistic in orientation.

It has been the legacy of this Kingdom of Two Sicilies that has been able to maintain a southern Italian identity even against the wishes of today’s central government in Rome. However, if Southern Italy is to truly find itself again and become a free and independent nation, it must embrace its Italiote identity. An identity that can not be denied any longer, with plenty of evidence proving the Ancient Hellenic character of most Southern Italians and Sicilians. Researchers have found using autosomal DNA a strong affinity between Southern Italians and Hellenes. Ethnic Italiotes must de-Italianize themselves so that they may taste true freedom once more. This can and will only happen once Italianized Italiotes reawaken their Hellenic roots and identity and rejoin Hellenism as equals and defenders of Western Hellenism or specifically Italiote Hellenism.

Hellenic Left: Nothing more then Franco-Germanic Tools

No migrant child left behind

EU Commissioner Jacque Barrot calls on Greece to amend legislation that deprives children of undocumented immigrants the chance to apply for the European Union-wide long-term resident status

Read Full Article Here

As the European Union attempts to enforce its fascist laws upon the Hellenic people, when dealing with our current illegal immigration situation, it has been the Hellenic Left that has been aiding the Franco-Germanic EU in destroying the Hellenic nation. Recently the EU has been threatening legal action against Hellas for not allowing undocumented immigrant children from applying for long-term resident status.

It was Dimitris Papadimoulis of the Left Coalition Synaspismos, who informed the EU of the current problem. At the moment, George Papandreou of PASOK and Alexis Tsipras of Syriza both maintain support of the EU’s position, which hopes to turn the streets of Hellas into a Third World haven. This position chosen by the Hellenic Left is in my opinion treasonous and a direct threat to the very survival of the Hellenic people. To support non-Hellenes, who are attempting to force our sovereign nation to allow ILLEGAL UNDOCUMENTED MINORS to do anything within our nation is not what our elected officials should be doing. In what way are these Left wing politicians aiding the HELLENIC people by allowing these individuals to stay inside our country? A country that is unable to employ and provide for its own people, yet we must do this for ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS? We must turn the streets of Athens and Thessaloniki into ghettos, de-Hellenizing our homeland to help these ILLEGAL immigrants settle into life inside our country, while the corrupt governments of their own countries reap the benefits of our demise? I SAY NO! The only way to HELP ILLEGAL UNDOCUMENTED immigrants is to fight the corruption within their own Third World countries and provide them opportunities within their OWN country, so they are not forced to migrate anywhere.

Greece's jobless youths fight back

By Barnaby Phillips in Athens
Monday, February 16, 2009
19:50 Mecca time, 16:50 GMT

Europeans who worry that growing unemployment will lead to social unrest in the months ahead have a familiar mantra these days: "look at what just happened in Greece, that could be a foretaste of what we can all expect in 2009".

Read Full Article Here

According to the EU, Hellas holds a 7.5% unemployment rating as recently as late 2008. What I wonder is how can a nation that is doing better during this global economic crisis then other EU countries be suffering from street violence and protests? What many fail to state is that roughly 20% of Hellenes under 25 are unemployed. The next generation of educated and bright minded Hellenes are suffering from the system so many of us love to defend. A system that has failed the next generation, and it is up to these young Hellenes to break and rebuild that system. To do away with the waring political clans of Papandreou and Karamanlis. To create a truly Hellenic political ideology, rather then borrowing foreign ones like Socialism. To rebuild the system as we deem fit for our own benefit and for the benefit of Hellenism.

The Code - A Patriot's guide

All my life I've lived by a code and the code is simple: honor the gods, love your woman and defend your country. Troy is mother to us all. Fight for her! – Hector, Troy (2004) Movie

Although this quote is from a movie, it speaks wonders of the form on honor one believes in when remembering the past. These words, spoken by ‘Hector’ whether they are real or not, doesn’t matter. It is the idea that these words invoke that matters. One of the Nine Worthies, Hector invokes the very ideal of honor and nobility from the ancient world.

The Code, a simple ‘patriot’s guide’ to life, an echo from a time long along when Hellenism reined supreme. An honor code from a time of Heroes and philosophers, from the Golden Age that has been taken from us and replaced by decadence, greed and selfishness.

Honour the Gods

A call to live a righteous life, one in harmony with Mother Nature and the cosmic balance

Love Your Woman

A call to love and respect the bearer of your children

Defend your country

A call to honour your country and countrymen and to fight for the preservation of yourself and your ancestors.

If Hellenism is to find itself, reborn this simple code, must first find itself also followed once more. It must take the shape of the very blocks that lay the foundation for Hellenism’s rebirth. It does matter what religion you follow, whether it be Orthodoxy, the old Gods, or some other of the world’s many organized religions. Honor your religious beliefs and do not falter in their practice. It does not matter what woman you have married, you have taken a scared oath to love and be loyal to her. Show the world what kind of man you truly are and how good your word is, so all can see you do not falter in the oaths that you take before friends and loved ones. Defend your country; do not defend the corrupt leaders who rule its government, but rather defend the very ideal that are your country and homeland.

Skopia (FYROM): On ethnic fault lines

FYROM school segregated over ethnic fights

SKOPJE, FYROM(AP) — A string of clashes between FYROMian and ethnic Albanian schoolchildren prompted education officials to institute segregated classes in a small town on Tuesday.

Education Minister Pero Stojanovski said the introduction of different shifts for schoolchildren of different ethnicities at the high school in Struga was necessary for teenagers' safety.
About a dozen pupils have been hurt in violence at the school over the past few weeks.

Class Struggle
by Ljubica Grozdanovska
1 October 2007

SKOPJE, FYROM | The Albanian students who attend Zef Ljus Marku High School don’t know the FYROMian students at Nikola Karev High School, even though both groups attend classes in the same building. The roughly 2,000 students go to classes in two shifts separated by an hour: FYROMians in the morning, and the Albanians in the afternoon. The schools’ management decided to split the students into ethnic groups about five years ago to avoid conflicts.

Read Full Article Here

In 2001, the small country of Skopia suffered a deep internal wound, when the Albanian National Liberation Army, who could be argued as nothing more then the Skopian wing of the KLA (Kosovo Liberation Army), launched a 6 month uprising against the Skopian government. Since then an uneasy calm has set across the country, with both sides preparing for round two. One on going issue that has kept tensions alive is found in the very halls of the institutions that should be healing the nation’s wounds. A policy of ethnic segregation within Skopian schools has only added to the list of fascist tendencies held by the current VMRO regime of Skopia. The ethnic conflict that was played out violently back in 2001 has since changed its surroundings from the battlefield to the class room. Albanian-Skopian clashes have continued to happen across the country forcing many towns to divide students on ethnic lines. As this trend continues one is left wondering how much longer the fascist VMRO regime can continue to suppress the ethnic tensions that are simmering under the radar. If Skopia is to survive and prevent its demise it must find away to bring these two major communities together to form a truly unique identity. The current fascist regime of Skopia with its revisionist nationalistic rhetoric and ridiculous irredentist dreams towards Hellas has no future in a united Europe. How much longer can the citizens of Skopia wait for a better tomorrow? How much longer until then can join the rest of Europe in the halls of the EU and NATO? How much more ethnic violence and economic poverty must they face before they;

A. unite and together remove the VMRO regime

B. end the government's revisionist and irredentist policies towards Hellenic character of Macedonia

C. improve the living conditions of ethnic Hellenic, Albanian and Roma minorities

D. find a national identity unique to their current borders that all ethnic groups can rally behind

Turkey Teaches anti-Christian Discrimination

Turkey’s Ministry of Education has introduced a school text book which encourages discrimination of the country’s small Christian community, despite growing international concern over increasing violence against non-Muslims in Turkey.

The book, Primary Education, History of Republic Reforms and Atatürkizm, Lesson Book 8, is aimed at thirteen year olds and was published this year by Devlet [State] Books. The controversial text describes missionary activity as a threat to national unity by destroying national and cultural values through converting people to another religion.

Senator Menendez right to ask tough questions of a Turkey that is drenched in
minority blood.
By Nikolaos Taneris February 10, 2009

While I do not necessarily agree with Senator Menendez's support of the
"bizonal/bi-communal Federation" for Cyprus, I do take offense at Ms. Guler
Koknar ,( from the well financed Washington DC-based Turkish lobby TCA--Turkish
Coalition of America) launching missives of misinformation about "ethnic
politics" and "business as usual" in regards to an ongoing humanitarian crisis,
especially as it regards Turkey, with its rising Anti-American and anti-Western
,Islamic extremist slide into yet another Middle Eastern nightmare for

Turkey, as it is portrayed by its slick and deep pocketed lobbyists, would like
Americans to believe that it is a secular Muslim democracy and a US ally.

First, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of the Islamist AK Party has
said "Allah will sooner or later punish those who transgress the rights of
innocents." He added for good measure that "Media outlets supported by Jews are
disseminating false reports...." In reference to recent events in the Middle

None of which is surprising when considering the rise of Islamic fundamentalism
and Turkish nationalism in Turkish popular culture. A few years ago, we saw the
huge popularity of the rabidly anti-American and anti-Semitic film Valley of the
Wolves, which shows a Jewish-American army doctor harvesting organs from wounded
Iraqi prisoners to sell to rich Americans, Israelis and Britons. The film was
shown to cheering audiences who applauded the deaths of American men and women
on film in battle scenes.

Second, in recent weeks, Turkish actor, Attila Olgac, a star in the popular
Valley of the Wolves TV series, which spawned the notorious anti-American and
anti-Israeli film of the same name, admits while being interviewed on Turkish
Star television, that during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 he
cold-bloodedly murdered 10 Greek prisoners. This confession is in regards to
Turkey's crimes in 1974,when Turkish forces forced over 200,000 Cypriots out of
their homes in Cyprus, massacred thousands of civilians by means of napalm and
bombs dropped on schools, houses of worship and hospitals , and illegally seized
some thirty-seven percent of Cypriot territory, which Turkey still occupies.
Cyprus is the only European country that still endures ongoing

Third, the confession of Attila Olgac is not the only one about Turkey's war
crimes in Cyprus. Many "Stories of Shame" such as this one have been recorded by
Kurdish journalist Roni Alasor, who lives in Norway for the past 30 years. In
his book "Order: Execute the Prisoners" (published 1999, printed in Greek 2001),
he records 10 confessions of Turkish army veterans who participated in the 1974
invasion involving slaughters of unarmed citizens, prisoner executions and all
types of violent acts. Sergeant H. Kofen refers to a mass grave which his unit
found in a ditch near Lapithos. "I believe these corpses (around 100) belonged
to Greek-Cypriots... even though some looked like soldiers, most of them were
citizens, dressed in civil". According to a Turkish commando, "the murders,
rapes and looting started after 22nd July 1974", after the first supposed
"ceasefire" on the island.

The government of Cyprus plans to bring up the issue of Attila Olgac and his
revelations to the Committee of the Permanent Representatives of the Council of
Europe. The initiative is important as Turkey has already been condemned from
the Council

Ms. Guler Koknar, who claims to speak for "30,000 Turkish Americans" in New
Jersey, should look into her own backyard and come to terms with Turkey's crimes
for the sake of her country and country men; it's never too late to make right
the wrongs which have been committed. Demilitarization of the Greek Island of
Cyprus, the largest of the islands of Greece, would be a first step towards
making such amends. Then should follow a full hearted apology to Greeks and
Armenians, for Turkey's long legacy of military aggression, discrimination,
massacres and genocide.

Senator Menendez, a Hispanic minority congressman, is very much in his right to
ask tough questions of what foreign policy makers plan to do with a Turkey that
is drenched in minority blood.

Turkish Coalition of America takes on Sen. Robert Menendez over "ethnic
Posted by Guler Koknar/ NJ Voices Guest Blogger January 28, 2009 3:08PM
Categories: Politics

While America is currently engaged in two wars, faces the continued threat of
international terrorism and the possible advent of nuclear-armed rogue nations,
and struggles with an economic crisis of historical proportions, Sen. Robert
Menendez (D-NJ) chose to use his valuable time at the confirmation hearing of
newly confirmed Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to pander to the
Armenian and Greek lobbies.

While the world was watching, Sen. Menendez asked Sen. Clinton to make it a
priority to recognize as "genocide" nearly a century-old events that took place
in a foreign state which no longer exists. He theorized that the United States
must pay heed to "history that is universally recognized so that we can move
forward in that respect."

A history lesson to address the deeds of a defunct empire, apparently in the
Senator's eyes, should be a priority for the new U.S. Secretary of State to
address in confirmation hearings. Never mind that what Senator Menendez calls
"universally recognized" history, is still strongly debated among scores of
scholars and that many historians of international renown contest the genocide

If this issue was indeed universally settled, Great Britain, a country which was
a party to the conflict at hand, would not have repeatedly refused to use the
term genocide to describe the tragic events. If defining whether a crime
constituted genocide was to be entrusted to politicians, the international
community would not have bestowed the authority to investigate, prosecute and
punish such crimes to the International Court of Justice.

The senator also stated that the tiny island of Cyprus should be high on the
priority list of the Secretary of State. Voicing support for the "bi-zonal,
bi-communal federation" solution on the island, Sen. Menendez seemed to be
ignorant of the fact that this was precisely what 65 percent of Turkish Cypriots
supported in a referendum in 2004, and which 75 percent of Greek Cypriots
rejected. Based on his obvious concern for the well being of ALL Cypriots, we
hope that Sen. Menendez will now take the lead in a congressional effort to lift
the inhumane international blockade on the Turkish Cypriots and provide an
incentive for the solution he so desires.

The fact of the matter is that at the dawn of a new U.S. administration, awaited
with great anticipation to be the government of change around the world and at
home, it was politics as usual for Sen. Menendez. As the world was watching, he
faithfully continued to cater to ethnic politics at home. Rather than
questioning the Secretary of State on the countless foreign policy challenges
America faces around the world, he sought her commitment to take sides in a
historical dispute, while making a half-hearted attempt to appease the Greek
American community.

The people of New Jersey, including over 30,000 Turkish Americans, deserve
better leadership.

Canadian Prime Minister consorting with Anti-Hellenism

Harper Rings In The Year Of The Ox In Toronto

Just this past Saturday Hellenic-Canadians came face to face with the anti-Hellenic past of their adopted country. When Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper attended a recent 50th anniversary celebration for a Skopian irredentist organization in Toronto. To see the Prime Minister of Canada consorting with such an organization is extremely troubling, seeing the organizations clearly anti-Hellenic nature. This public appearance, which coincidently was held in the very city that witness the worse act of anti-Hellenic hate in the western hemisphere in 1918, is a direct attack at Hellenic-Canadians, which are no strangers to anti-Hellenism. In 1918, the city of Toronto was witness to one of the darkest events in the history of Hellenism in Canada*. How ironic that it was chosen to host this anti-Hellenic Skopian celebration.

The ‘United Macedonian’ organization is an openly irredentist and revisionist organization that follows the racist ideology of ‘Macedonism’. Their official Web Site openly uses ethnic Hellenic symbols, like the Sun of Vergina, illegally. The organizations own mission statement screams of irredentist aspirations and revisionist history:

WHEREAS, The Macedonian nation, language, alphabet, culture and national history, are distinct and different from all nations, languages, alphabets, cultures and national histories of the world;
WHEREAS, Macedonia was occupied in 1912 by its neighbours, Albania, Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia, and divided among them;
WHEREAS, The Macedonians living in the Little Prespa and Golo Brdo regions of Macedonia (within the present borders of Albania), in the Pirin part of Macedonia (within the present borders of Bulgaria), in the Aegean part of Macedonia (within the present borders of Greece), and in the Gora and Prohor Pchinski regions of Macedonia (within the present borders of Yugoslavia), are denied the basic human and national rights at the end of this and beginning of the next millennium;
WHEREAS, The Republic of Macedonia, although covering only 39% of Macedonia's ethnic territory, is a national state and pride of Macedonians everywhere.

The Mission statement continues to read:

3. To work for the attainment of National and Human Rights of all Macedonians, especially those living in the occupied territories of Macedonia;

United Macedonians Goals Based on Mission Statement

1. In order to achieve the national unity of Macedonians worldwide, the United Macedonians will:
a) Establish United Macedonians chapters where ever there are groups of Macedonians that support the United Macedonians Mission;
b) Establish membership at large, where ever there are not large groups of Macedonians;
c) Establish and maintain close contacts with all Macedonian Organizations that support our Mission Statement;
d) Work towards national awakening of all ethnic Macedonians that have fallen victims to foreign propagandas and interests.
e) Work towards a "United Macedonia in United Europe".

With such blatantly irredentist and revisionist orientated organizations gaining such public approval from the Prime Minister of Canada, one can only wait and see what lays ahead for Hellenism in Canada, with an Anti-Hellenist in office.

With mounting press building from the United States, through its puppets in the EU, more and more countries are finding it difficult not to fall inline on the issue of Kosovo. These difficulties are only getting worse, with the European Parliament's call for all EU state to recognize the 'state' of Kosovo. These American Imperialist visions of an Independent terrorist puppet state on Serbian soil is a crime against humanity. I congratulate Spain on standing firm on the side of justice. Thank You

The truth is on our side, and hence we must rally around the songs of old to find the inspiration to lead a new generation of Alexanders.

Kurdistan part of Iraq, govt. has to intervene against its shelling – spokesman
February 6, 2009

ARBIL / Aswat al-Iraq: A Kurdish peshmerga forces spokesman called on the Iraqi government on Friday to should its responsibilities in accordance with the constitution and press the Iranian and Turkish governments to stop shelling border areas in Kurdistan region, which is part of Iraqi territories.

The failure of the current government of Iraq to protect its citizens from Turkish bombardment only adds to the realization that Baghdad is incapable of protecting its Kurdish citizens from continued Turkish persecution. The fact that the Turkish military is able to bomb Iraqi Kurdistan with no international outrage is unacceptable. The United States inability to stand beside the only positive and stable member of their puppet government in Iraq only goes to show the kind of gratitude the Americans have for those who aided 'the American dream of a free Iraq'. The state-sponsored terroristic bombings of Iraqi Kurdistan are appalling and must come to an end. If the United States' puppet Iraqi government can not protect Iraqi Kurdistan, perhaps then Iraqi Kurdistan should call for a referendum on Kurdish Independence.

Talking Turkey

By Steven Plaut
Wednesday, February 04, 2009

...The occupied territories in which ethnic cleansing was perpetrated by the Turkish occupying power refer to northern Cyprus. Turkey illegally invaded Cyprus, an independent state (now part of NATO and the EU), in 1974, and militarily seized about a third of the island. It then expelled the entire Greek population from those occupied territories. Hundreds of thousands of innocent Greek Cypriots were made homeless refugees due to the military aggression of Turkey. Not a single country on earth recognizes the puppet "republic" Turkey still operates there. To maintain its hold on northern Cyprus, Turkey transferred many thousands of its own citizens to northern Cyprus as illegal settlers...

The recent outburst of Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan at the Davos forum has done something I never thought I'd witness, it has opened a can of worms in paradise between the two Middle Eastern allies, Turkey and Israel. The recently written article above by Steven Plaut, a professor at the Graduate School of Business Administration at the University of Haifa, says it all. What kind of a hypocrite like Turkish PM Erdogan believes they have the moral high ground to make such claims against Israel in Gaza? Yes, I myself am Pro-Palestinian, and in someways I am happy to see the Turkish PM stand up against the oppressive regime inside occupied Palestine, but when you are right, you are right, and Professor Plaut has hit the nail on the head. How can Turkey get upset about the deaths of thousands of innocent women and children, when such genocidal policies are common place by the current Turkish government and past ones? A nation, like Turkey, that is guilty of mass murder and genocide against so many people, has no room to speak on such matters as Gaza. It is about time that these people started speaking out against Turkey and all its crimes against Hellenes, Armenians, Assyrians, and other indigenous people of the former Ottoman Empire.

"Then there is the little matter of Constantinople. The Greek claims to Istanbul are at least a hundred times more legitimate than are any Arab claims to Jerusalem. Constantinople was always a Greek city, conquered by the Turks only in 1453. Its Greek churches were turned into mosques, and some today are Turkish museums. Turkey has never offered to internationalize the city nor turn half of it over to the disenfranchised Greeks." - Professor Plaut

Fascist Official Video of the FYROMian Government, on State TV [Full version]


0.28-0.49: O, Lord! Dearest God, which is in Heaven! Do you see our Macedonian agonies? Do you hear the crying of our fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and of our children? For the offspring which died for Macedonia?

0.51-2.29: We are bleeding for thousands of years, the living wounds of our offspring are left to them. O, Lord, You are the Only One at the Heaven. Only You are looking at our mother, crucified at four sides as the Son of God. Wherever You go, You are stepping over a grave and fall over bones. O, Lord, appear now, say us the truth, to us and to the world, because St. Nicholas came in my dream and told me: "and I am from the land of love and goodness, and I am a Macedonian. And I shed a bloody tear in the pot of our pain. But the truth is at the Almighty. Ask Him and He will tell it, because our Macedonian era has arrived. O, Lord, only You know that two truths exist, but the justice is only one. Thousands of book were spread all over the world by our neighbors with fake history and twisted truth about Macedonia. O, Lord, only You know our true justice: who we are, from where we are and why we are Macedonians? And to the Apostle Paul during dream a Macedonian appeared, saying: "come to Macedonia and help us".

2.30-3.28: And St. Apostle Paul listened to the prayer and firstly came among us, Macedonians. And now here, 2.000 years we are believing only in You, and in 2.000 Churches and Monasteries we are praying, and from the eternity we are waiting on You. I already can't remember, but I know, I, Macedon of Govrlevo, I am alone with God for 8.000 years and I pray in front of the largest cross in the world. You, the only Lord, dearest God which is in Heaven, listen to our prayer, come to Armageddon, lend us a hand and tell us the truth about the evil and the good, to us and to the whole world, because no more blood left in us, for the great mother - Macedonia


3.45-5.44: Divine blessing for you, my Macedonians. I have waited for thousands of years to be called by you. From always with you, from eternity I am coming, I am already among you because here neither time nor space exists. Here, at my place, the time is still. But at your place, the time is now, for me to explain. Your mother earth I have inhabited with three races: the White-Macedonoids, the Yellow-Mongoloids and the Black-Negroids. The rest-all are mulattoes. From you, Macedonians, the descendants of Macedon, I have impregnated the White race and everything began from you, to the Sea of Japan. All White people are your brothers because they carry Macedonian gene. And all the migrations started from your place towards the north. Kokino, Porodin, Radobor, Angelci, Barutnica, Govrlevo, wherever you dig you shall find the truth who you are, why you are and from where are you. Evil diabolic souls obscured the truth for thousands of years and lied to the world.

5.46-7.16: How much did you suffered and to what kind of plights did you passed, because I was sending you temptations, but you have stayed faithful, my Children. Children of the sun and of the flowers, blessed with the joy, love and goodness. I send you Tsars for thousands of years and now I am giving you again. You are giving them to everybody, you didn't left them for you. How many Tsars are here with Me and how Macedonians are, so many stars are on the heaven and sand in the sea is. Let all the Angels sing, for everybody who are with Me, who from love for Macedonia, exchanged their life for eternity and shared the Tsardom here with Me. Already the Angels are singing for all of you which understood God's glory, for all of you to which I gave a part of Paradise, for all of you I gifted with love and peace, for all of you which waited for Me and have seen My arrival.

7:18-9.04: Here, I am now coming to Macedonia, I am now among you, to tell you the truthful truth, which is among you under the soil. The grave of Alexander, the Macedonian Tsar, I shall open it, and the entire world at bowing in front of you I shall bring. How many Macedonian graves I have yet to open, because souls near me desire the truth. Love your greatest enemies, because I send them to be of greatest help to you. The truth about Macedonia and you, Macedonians, should be known to the world. Because you were first among the firsts, most dignified among the most dignified. Now the Macedonian era arrived, the whole world to obtain the truth, to see that honor and blessing is to be a Macedonian, a descendant of Macedon and son of the God of Universe. Children of mine, blessed and eternal be, here where the sun and flowers rules, let there be eternal joy, love and goodness. Among you, I am now noble. In eternal Macedonia, blessed one, amen!

Joseph Goebbels would be proud of the government propaganda coming out of FYROM. No matter how small, sad, or pathetic a country is, such extremist and clearly racist propaganda has no place in civilized Europe or the world as a whole.
