Ironically, it might be that the Greek government dug its own grave with this deal. Acknowledging that a) there exists a Macedonian language (and thus, people) and b) there is a country called North Macedonia, it follows logically that c) there is a region called South Macedonia (in Greece) that contains (or at least contained) Macedonian people. Then again, nationalism is an expert in creating doublethinking...

Just a creative username.

I am originally from Greece but emmigrated: I wasn't fulfilling all of their nation/religion/family-values requirements! Haha

To the best of my knowledge, I only have a Greek ethnic background. Regardless, I believe in multiculturalism and I don't agree with how the mainstream Greek culture forces assimilation on anyone who deviates from the "norm". The Macedonian people have suffered from these policies.

Welcome to the forum.

Many have suffered from those policies, some more than others.

So what lead you to open an account on this forum, what interests you?

Tsipras was born 28 July 1974 in Athens. His mother's family has its roots in a village near Babaeski in an area of Eastern Thrace which was transferred from Turkey to Greece during the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey. His father, Pavlos, was from Epirus and was a contractor of big public works.

You might be sincere. Not all Greeks are completely mad and irrational. Your choice of a slavic sounding name is curious though and suggests a contrived angle to assist with gaining access to posting privileges on the forum. But that's fine. Good start.
