Skopjan propaganda # 19 “4,000 years of Greek Civilization”

 

The systematic counterfeiting of the history of Macedonia by the Skopjans since 1944 and their attempt to monopolize the “Macedonia” name were considered by the Hellenic people as absurd and unworthy of their attention.

Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) was one from the Skopjan that use lies in order to expose his propaganda. He uses in the net name Risto Stefov but sell books with the name Chris Stefou. This article is an answer in his series book that supposed show Greek lies, produces nationalism and interism and of course has many historical un-accuracies and propaganda guide lines and can you read here

and has a title “4,000 years of Greek Civilization”

Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) as usual forget some critical thinks regarding the Hellenic history. As I see again flourish your anti-Hellenic passion and nationalism blindness by show to us the known writers that used from the kemalists, afica9eccentrists and of course from your Skopjan co-nationalits.

Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov) about a century ago your beloved German Professor Fallmerayer, with characteristic German thoroughness, essayed to prove that all connection between the Greeks of today and their ancestors of the great Classical period had been broken during the Middle Ages and that the successive waves of barbarians, Avars, Bulgars, Slavs, Albanians, Turks, and the various Latin invaders have so mixed the population that no trace of the ancient blood remains. Fallmerayer was one of the pioneers in the investigation of “race-purity,” which has been so relentlessly and one-sidedly pursued ever since by the Germans.

Similar proofs obtained by the same methods can be brought forward to witness against the purity of most of the national strains in Europe today. There is no such thing as race purity dear Chris Stefou(aka Risto Stefov). Your Skopjan propaganda is the one that try to give genetical connection as about your Slavonic civilization with the Greek one.

The Greek struggle for freedom in 1821 produced moral effects throughout the world as her resistance to Axis aggression was to do later in 1940.Vlachs, Arvanites(Albanians as you call them), Grekomans (slavphone Greeks as your nationalism want to present) fough for the Hellenism and the Hellenic civilization dear Chris Stefou (aka Risto Stefov). As Chase said : For another reason the Greek War of Independence belongs to the history of humanity as much as to the history of Greece. It was a popular movement. There were no recognized leaders, no military preparations, no resources for battle with a powerful empire. The real power behind the movement was the unquenchable desire for freedom, the hatred of slavery and the ever-living tradition of the Greek spirit.

The same writer mention as about the Greeks:
Yet, no other country is so fundamentally akin to Greece as the United States. The Greek people are a classless society as are the people of America and their attachment to the idea of democracy is as powerful and deep as in this country. Freedom of thought, speech and religion are of the essence of the Greek spirit. Greece has been a melting pot of races and foreign elements during all her long history and has absorbed these elements in the same way as America has done, by tolerance, infusion of its traditions and blending together of the elements of culture. This has kept Greece strong and perpetually young exactly as the same process is strengthening America.

Of course the same goes and for the Canadians dear Slavonic origin and Bulgarian dialect speaker Chris Stefou (aka Risto Stefov).

I spoke for the 1941. Greece is the country where World War II has not yet ended. More Greeks have died in fighting since the end of the war than were killed in the campaigns against the Italians and the Germans. Large-scale battles ended late in 1949 with the victory of the American-supported government armies over the Communist-led rebels. But skirmishes in isolated areas continue to take their toll, and the situation along the northern frontier remains so unsettled that at any moment guns may blaze once more. Of course is known that in Macedonia wasn’t any civil war. Was a war against your Aegean’s Slav ancestors dear Chris Stefou (aka Risto Stefov). The same ancestors that signed as Bulgarian like your x-president Gligorov or the members of the SNOF.

Or deny and this dear Slavonic origin and Bulgarian dialect speaker Chris Stefou (aka Risto Stefov). ?

Indeed, the valiant struggle of Greece against aggression and the heroic sacrifice of her people have again placed civilization under indebtedness. Out of the present struggle there should issue a better world. When that happens, the Greeks of today, as their forebears, will stand in the bright light of history as Shirley Webber mention.

During the long years of domination of Greece by the Ottomans, the cultural tradition of the Greeks remained alive. As the dominant Oriental power suppressed literary and artistic endeavor, the Greek spirit found expression in popular art, especially folk songs, dances, handicraft and religious painting. With the independence of Greece in 1830, literary and artistic creative work begins. Her leading writers, artists and scholars drew their inspiration from the West. The ambition was to recreate the classical era and they felt that by imitating the Western models they would reach this goal more easily since the West was now the depository of Greek culture. Regas Feraios , a Vlach origin published the first modern biography of the Great Alexander dear Slavonic origin and Bulgarian dialect speaker Chris Stefou (aka Risto Stefov).

Arnold J. Toynbee in Hellenism, The History of a Civilization wrote
Though the words ‘Hellenism’, ‘Hellenic’, ‘Hellenes’, ‘Hellas’ are less familiar than the words ‘Greece’ and ‘Greek’ to the English-speaking public, they have two advantages. They are not misleading; and they are the words which, in the Greek language, the Hellenes themselves used to designate their civilization, their world, and themselves. ‘Hellas’ seems originally to have been the name of the region round the head of the Maliac Gulf, on the border between Central and Northern Greece, which contained the shrine of Earth and Apollo at Delphi and the shrine of Artemis at Anthela near Thermopylae (the narrow passage between sea and mountain that has been the highway from Central Greece to Northern Greece and thence to the great Eurasian Continent into which Northern Greece merges). ‘Hellenes’, signifying ‘inhabitants of Hellas’, presumably acquired its broader meaning, signifying ‘members of the Hellenic society’, through being used as a corporate name for the association of local peoples, the Amphictyones (’neighbours’), which administered the shrines at Delphi and Thermopylae and organized the Pythian Festival that was connected with them.”

The same writer identified Byzantium as one of twenty-one such civilizations, attributing to it an identity and broad characteristics along with such civilizations as Hellenic, Western, Sinic, Hindu, and others. This great historian ν is concerned with establishing the characteristic evolution and institutions associated with the birth, development, and maturation of civilizations, thereby giving a great deal of attention to the parentage and affiliation of each of the twenty-one that he studied. For Byzantine civilization he saw Hellenic or ancient Greek culture as the parent, as its geographical kernel he saw Asia Minor and the southern Balkans, and considered Russia and Siberia as its primary geographical displacement or expansion. Its internal and external proletariats he asserted to have been the Orthodox Christian church and the barbarian invaders

This was the Greek civilazation. A civilization of 4000 years living history dear Slavonic origin and Bulgarian dialect speaker Chris Stefou (aka Risto Stefov).
And finally the usual question dear.

Why Great Alexander and theirs Macedonian ancestors spread the Hellenic civilization?

Of course you know the answer dear Bulgarian dialect speaker!!!
