Many passages in ancient authors record echoes of the traditions, testimonia and opinions regarding the nationality of the Macedonians, or, more narrowly, of the Macedonian royal family.

After completing this review, we shall proceed to an assessment of their content and arrive at definitive conclusions derived from this kind of evidence.

"Reference has been made [...] to an ancient tradition, according to which the Dorians were descended from a section of the Makednoi or Makedones. This tradition came down to Herodotos either through information he himself gathered in some Doric city,52 or through a very ancient epic poem, the Aigimios.53 The surviving fragments of this poem, together with other sources, reveal more precisely that the Dorians were formed by the union of some Macedonians with other tribes. The Dorians were pure Greeks. Various attempts to derive one section of them from Illyrian origins have been unsuccessful. In any case, these attempts were concerned with the Doric tribe the Hylleis, which was certainly not identical with the Makednoi.54 The fact that the Dorians were Greek naturally presupposes that the tribes of which they were composed were also Greek, and these include the Makednoi or Makedones, at a date earlier than the fourteenth century (see page 46)."

“A Persian inscription dating from 513 B.C. records the European peoples who were at that date subject to the Great King. One of these is described as Yauna Takabara -'Ionians whose head-dress is like a shield'. The Persians, like the other eastern peoples of antiquity, are known to have applied the term 'Ionians' to all the Greeks; on the other hand the head-dress resembling a shield has been rightly recognized as that depicted on Macedonian coins. The people called by the Persians 'Greeks whose head-dress is like a shield' are therefore identified with the Macedonians. The identification is supported by the fact that, in another Persian inscription, of 479 or 478, also listing the peoples of Europe subject to the Great King, this name is missing; at this date, it is known that the Macedonians were fighting the Persians. This Persian name for the Macedonians is the earliest piece of direct evidence available so far for the nationality of the Macedonians.”

After the battle of Issos, Alexander the Great sent a letter to Darius that began as follows:'Your ancestors came to Macedonia and the rest of Greece and did us much harm though we had done them no prior injury; I have been appointed commander-in-chief of the Greeks and invaded Asia in the desire to take vengeance on Persia for your aggressions.'57 From this extract it emerges clearly that Alexander regarded Macedonia as a Greek country, identified the sufferings of Macedonia at the hands of the Persians with the destruction they had wrought in southern Greece, and represented himself as the avenger of all these wrongs.

Former Greek Cypriot leader Glafkos Klerides said that the major parts
of the Akritas plan – a plan of Greek Cypriots’ to terminate Cypriot
Turks – was written by Papadopulos, and confirmed that he said the
infamous sentence of “We will have one hour and 45 minutes to clean up

“PAPADOPULOS CONFESSIONS” FROM KLERIDES

3 October 2010, Sunday

Glafkos Klerides, one of the former leaders of Greek Cypriot
Administration of Southern Cyprus, has put off the mask of today’s

accepts Cypriot Turks as the minority, adding that he never was
convinced to recognise no other rights for Cypriot Turks but minority
rights.

Klerides also said that the major parts of the Akritas plan – a plan
of Greek Cypriots’ to terminate Cypriot Turks – was written by
Papadopulos, and confirmed that he said the infamous sentence of “We
will have one hour and 45 minutes to clean up the Turks from Cyprus,"
during a visit to the American Embassy in 1964.

Come in Egypt and ask the people about Alexander the great, this is what they will tell you:

Alexander and his companions are Greek in origin, as Macedonians, and their descendants continue to see themselves as Greeks.

A veneer of Greek culture is the lasting result of Alexander's conquests. It is spread thinly from Egypt to Persia and even beyond the Khyber Pass, in addition to the many Mediterranean regions lying closer to Greece.

These places do not become Greek, but they acquire a Greek tinge - for which the 19th century coins a name, Hellenistic. Alexander's victories launch the Hellenistic ('Greek-ish') Age, which will last until the death of Cleopatra in 30 BC.
