Greeks and the Greek language prominent through out all ages, where as FYROM go from Alexander the Great (Greek) to Doce Golcev (Bulgariona)- what happened in between skops, no history, no language, no culture becasue you are Bulgairan off-springs. You were created by Tito.
The whole world knows this, your pathetic attempt to steal Greek history is slowly but surely becoming undone.

***Alexander the Great (356 BC-323 BC) was instrumental in combining these dialects to form the "Koine" dialect (Greek for "common"). Imposing a common Greek dialect allowed Alexander's combined army to communicate with itself.***
Ha, Hell-ass needs to say thank you to Alexander the Great for creating the Koine Languages by force!!
The language was also taught to the inhabitants of the regions that Alexander conquered, turning Greek into a world language. The Greek language continued to thrive after Alexander, during the Hellenistic period (323 BC to 281 BC). During this period the Septuagint, a Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, appeared.
For many centuries Greek was the lingua franca of the Roman Empire. It was during Roman times that the Greek New Testament appeared, and KoinČ Greek is also called "New Testament Greek" after its most famous work of literature.

Well done Flipo, you see, by reading about our Glorious Greek History you are learning something.

Of course Alexander the Great Greek made Koini the Lingua Franca of the Ancient world, not 'by force' as you like to imagine, but by EDUCATION. This was just one of the factors that helped create the Hellenistic Age and make Greek Culture and Science the LIGHT of the world.

I suppose it's too far above your thick, Slavic head to think why he didn't 'force' everyone to speak this imaginary Slavobulgaro makedonski you keep driveling about!

Hahahahahaha!!! IDIOT!

For God's sake, two Greek monks (Saints Cyril and Methodius) from Thessaloniki gave you turkoslavs your alphabet so I'd be thanking the Greeks for your documented slavic historical written origin!

Hi Ann,
You f..... it up all. You started to differentiate as Ellines in Byzantium instead of accepting Byzantine nationality and all ethnicities started to feel your thrive for racial supremacy. That's how Byzantium weakened and Ottomans came as cunami.
Constantinople was never Greek it was Byzantine capital, and you undermined the strongest Christian empire that ever existed.

The consequences of that bad estimation that it's more fashionable to become Elin instead of Byzantine (Roman) can be felt even today. Again your nationalistic thrive for supremacy in the Christian Orthodox world (totally unfounded and unrealistic) is the main contributor for your unsuccessful European integration. You are inside, but all Catholic countries want you out because you demonstrate superiority over Catholic faith. Economic excuses are only excuses. Christian Orthodox European countries doesn't accept you because of your supremacy theories over your brothers in faith.
What is your position, where is your place, do you think you are God's from Olympe? You are in serious trouble, your economy is in free fall, your society is entirely dysfunctional. Do you need Macedonian question in order to keep it all together? Can you see that your false feeling of superiority is the key for your misfortunes?

Can't see where you got That from. France, for example, has always been an avid supporter of Greece. Both before we enter EU and later. Anyways, religion doesn't play an important role in politics for most europeans.

France is the only supporter of Greece in this time, and you know why is that so. Religion has the key role for European countries. Multi culti is dead, Merkel said it herself, and religion is great part of culti.
