Look for name Greece, greeks, Elas.

Truth is logical. Its easy, try it you will see.
Wikipedia lies. Find facts for your self.
It took me 20 years, but I found the truth.
You Greeks have newly created theory.
That's why you are all mixed up and not thinking straight.

IGNORANCE AND INFERIORITY CAN BE FOUGHT

Bitola. City, southern Macedonia. The city was formerly noted for its monastery. Hence its name, from Macedonian 'Obitel', "monastery", Literally "abode". When the meaning of the name was no longer understood, it lost its initial O, as if it were a prefix.)
Hence also the city's alternate Turkish name of 'Monastir'.

PREHISTORY. The geographic location of Macedonia allowed contact between two cultural spheres: the Aegean and the Anatolian. This contact was the reason why Macedonia since prehistory took a significant part in the cultural development of the Balkans. The finds at VRŠNIK, near Tarinci (in the region of Shtip) are proof of the existence of the "Vrshnik" or east Balkan culture of the Neolithic. The Neolithic sites by BARUTNICA (Anzabegovo near Shtip), by ZELENIKOVO and MADjARI (near Skopje), BUCHIM (Radovish), LOPATE (Kumanovo), and somewhat later in Pelagonia and Ohrid, where primitive pottery has been discovered, prove that a native cultural tradition - though a tradition susceptible to outside influences, especially from the east - developed in Macedonia.
This Neolithic development was discontinued at the beginning of the second millennium B.C. in the early transition from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age (2600-1200 B.C.). Sites from this period have been discovered in Macedonia at SKOPJE, CRNOBUKA,ŠUPLEVAC and BAKARNO GUMNO. The discoveries at these sites include stone houses, pottery with smooth coatings, graphite-painted ornaments, roughly stylized seated figures and roughly-modeled figures with an opening on the upper part and a modeled head.
The discovery of graves in STENA ("Demir Kapia" near Bitola) by SARAY BROD and the central grave from VISO (also near Bitola) are significant, as all take the form of a stone chest; the existence of a special kind of local, painted ceramic known as babushti ceramics; research on necropolises in Eastern Macedonia by RADANJE and ORLOVI CHUKI; research on the graves under the tombs in ORIZARI (near Kochani), VUCHIDOL and BRAZDA (near Skopje); all provide ample information about the life and cultural circumstances of Macedonia during the Iron Age (1200-400 B.C.). The last centuries of this era represent a period of strong Hellenistic influences over the region, noticeable both in the processing of ceramics and in the common forms of jewelry, metallic vessels and other metallic articles found at TREBENIŠTE, RADOLIŠTE, V'SOI, TEGOVO and at other sites throughout Macedonia.
Internal clashes, the most important being clashes of ethnic and social character, helped to frame some of the features of the general development of culture on Macedonian soil. In this prehistoric period, the Illyrian and Thracian cultures clashed and intermingled. Later, from the 6th century B.C., Greek culture was of great influence, followed by Roman culture during the first few decades A.D. All this led to the establishment of new religions and ideological, ethnic and economic movements, which left their traces on the development of art.

you forgot to mention this from your britannica link malaka ......Near the end of World War II in Europe, Yugoslav officials on August 2, 1944, established the People’s Republic of Macedonia as one of the six constituent republics of the state which soon became the Federal People’s Republic of Yugoslavia. With the standardization of the Macedonian language and the establishment of a Macedonian Orthodox Church, the process of constructing a Macedonian nation continued.

"Statesmen, resistance leaders and former rulers are all present, along with Byzantine Emperor Justinian I, who came from Skopje. And surrounded by all of this is the enormous monument to Alexander the Great.‘Enormous’ itself does not go nearly far enough, and this statue alone, in my opinion, is worth visiting the city of Skopje to see. I will save a more detailed description of this for the next post, suffice it to say that Alexander, seated on his rearing horse, is a commanding presence in Macedonian Square."

...Archaeological Museum of Macedonia. The building itself looks as if it has recently been excavated, as it is currently undergoing renovations. I found this at once extremely appealing from an aesthetic standpoint and a terrible disappointment as a curious visitor.

What wonders must the Archaeological Museum of Macedonia contain?

Mother Teresa, born in Skopje and of Albanian descent, is also remembered with a touching memorial in front of a patch of grass where the house of her birth once stood.

This city of Skopje may be transforming itself into a modern European capital, with tall buildings, shopping malls, cinemas and restaurants, but it is nevertheless steeped in history both ancient and eastern.

MACEDONIA TIMELESS
