In order to clear this mess, arbitration will be the proper avenue to take.

"The documents comprising this book speak forcefully for the proposition that the history of ancient Macedonia, including the brilliant reigns of Philip and his son Alexander, belongs squarely in the cultural, economic, political, religious, and military history of Hellenism. The cultural milieu of the Macedonian court was Greek. The texts that Alexander studied as a youth were Greek. The books he read while in Asia were Greek. The heroes he emulated, the gods he worshiped, the temples he built were Greek. The coins he minted in the millions were Greek. The legacy he left behind from Anatolia to India was as Greek as his settlers could make it, right down to a theater, gymnasium, and inscribed copy of the Delphic maxims in a far corner of Afghanistan. To say that Alexander's kingdom was in some ways out of step with the city-states to the south is hardly an argument against his Hellenic heritage; it only means that Macedonia remained more Homeric than Athens, Thebes, or Sparta. It is hard to be more Greek than that. Nor should we be troubled by Alexander's ability to speak a Macedonian dialect or by his interest in the world beyond Greece itself. Alexander was a man of the world, certainly, but he was a man from Macedonian Greece. According to Arrian 2.14.4, Alexander said this himself in a letter to the Persian king Darius:

Alexander sent a reply to Darius by way of Thersippos, who went back with the Persian envoys. Alexander's letter states as follows:“Your ancestors invaded Macedonia and the rest of Greece, inflicting evils upon us without provocation…”

Here Alexander's point seems clear — Macedonia was historically a part of Greece".

END OF STORY!

Hahahahahahaha This is 'rich' coming from someone who’s nationality, SLAV, is the etymological root of the word SLAVE!

slave (n.) Look up slave at Dictionary.com
c.1290, "person who is the property of another," from O.Fr. esclave, from M.L. Sclavus "slave" (cf. It. schiavo, Fr. esclave, Sp. esclavo), originally "Slav" (see Slav), so called because of the many Slavs sold into slavery by conquering peoples.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Now we are starting to hear that there language is part of the slav langauge, they have given up this fight. Now they are saying that this new macedonia is part of the slav dialect, What a bunch of wankers and losers. The are so confused they change with the wind. They are failing big time. Cracks in there idenity is starting to fall apart. Even there government wants to talk now.

Pathetic psychopathic lonely creature who always trying to delude and distort himself/herself and historic facts!!!
YOu are trying to make a mix of 2 dictionaries and promote them as a the main truth!
Webster's does not refer to the degrading notation of "Greek" as you would like to imply...you have no any serious or respectable source to blacken the brilliant hellenic history!

Your propaganda is always exposed.
Famous and respective sholars of Graeco-roman antiquity are on Greek's side and we don't need you garbage talking to distort the reality that hurts you so much and you can do nothing about that.

You must be a very lonely and miserable person.
Start to respect the truth and life will respect you too!
