"Alexander’s first course of action was to liberate the Greek cities on the eastern shore of the Aegean Sea."

What do the Gruevski schoolbooks have to say about this?

"After securing the eastern edge of the Aegean, Alexander and his army turned their attention to Egypt. In 332, he claimed Egypt as part of the Greek Empire."

I thought Tentov and Boshevski were claiming Alexander made Egypt part of the ancient Yugoslav empire. What is their opinion on this statement?

I'll try asking the question again, maybe I will get a rational answer from you:

"If Philip, Alexander and the Macedonians were NOT GREEK and came from a GREAT SEPARATE NATION, why didn't they spread the so called ‘Monkeydonski Language and Culture’ to the known world, instead of the Language and Culture of their 'enemies' and 'slaves'- THE GREEKS" ???

WELL ???

Hey Damianos, I told you before! Logic and rational thinking are two things the Skops cannot fathom.

Stelios, I am well aware of this, but we can only live in hope, besides, there are visitors to these threads that see the discussion and they can form their own opinions about the issue based on the answers they DON'T see from the skops.

History is science and Skopians cannot play with it , disrespect and distort it just to justify their usurpation of the greek history and the greek name of Macedonia.

Alexander's general Perdiccas attacked the gates, broke into the city, and Alexander moved with the rest of the army behind him to prevent the Thebans from cutting him off. The Macedonians stormed the city, killing everyone in sight, women and children included. 6,000 Thebans citizens died and 30,000 more were sold as slaves. The city where Alexander's father was kept as hostage for three years, was plundered, sacked, burned, and razed to the ground, just like Philip acted with Methone, Olynthus, and the rest of the Greek cities in Chalcidice. Only the temples and the house of the poet Pindar were spared from distraction. This was example to the rest of Greece and Athens and the other Greek city-states quickly rethought their quest for freedom. Greece remained under Macedonian rule.

What follows are documents that speak of the continued existence of Macedonia and of the Macedonian nation through the last 25 centuries. Macedonia is clearly distinguished from Greece (Hellas), Thrace, Illyria, Bulgaria, Serbia, and the Macedonians are likewise distinguished as distinct nation from the Greeks, Thracians, Illyrians, Bulgarians, Serbs, Albanians, as nation which continued to exist and survive trough the centuries ( makedonika.org ).
500 B.C.- 500 A.D.
Macedonia and the Macedonians as distinct nation in the works of the ancient Greek, Roman, and Jewish historians, as well in the works of the modern German, French, English, American historians.

8th Century
From Strabonos Epithomatus: "And now, in that way almost all of Epirus, Hellada, the Peloponnese and Macedonia have also been settled by the Skiti-Slavs." C. Muller, Geographi graeci minores, Paris 1882, p.574.
821-823 A.D.

Wars between people of the same ethnicity in the world history is not something unusual. Macedonia was a kingdom ruled by people of greek ethnicity, the Macedonians.
Politics and wars do not determine ethnicity.
