Macedonia is not Greek. Megali idea is based
on the occupation and denationalization of a territory over which it does not
have any historical rights.
Greece between ultra nationalism and reality
Two National Ideas - Megale Idea
and Bulgarian National Idea
At the end I would like to have a look into the future. I would also
like to make a comparison between the Greek ,,Megale idea" and
the Bulgarian national idea. While the task of the Greek "Megale
idea" is the occupation and denationalization of a territory,
over which it does not have any historical rights with the exception of
the right of the conqueror and the idea is based on the hypothetical
pan-Hellenism, the Bulgarian national idea is based on the human values:
freedom of expression, freedom of thoughts and freedom of religion (Levski,
Botev and Rakovski). When the Greek national hero Pavlos Melas died in
Macedonia, when the Greek rebels like jackals were trying to tear the
bleeding Macedonia after the Ilinden Uprising, the great son of Macedonia
Gotze Delchev said the memorable words: „I understand the world
solely as a field for cultural competition of nations". What
could justify the moral right to dominate a land, which had been populated
by a nation only for a few centuries /the ancient Macedonian/, for whom
science has proven they do not have anything to do with the ancient
Hellenes and had ceased to exist in 148 A.D., while 15 centuries the same
land has been inhabited by one and the same Slav nation? Out of the
presentation herein, it is evident that the discrimination policy against
Bulgarians in Aegean Macedonia is a strictly followed national policy.
The question here is: Is such policy in the interest of Greece itself
at the beginning of the new century? Isn't it better for Greece to stop
supporting such an ultra-racial idea and listen to the voice of the people
creating a new Europe?
Not long ago 169 Greek intellectuals said it out-loud: ,,The
Government, political parties, prominent journalists, high-ranking
officers and the Church are giving signals for immediate danger. Greece is
presented as continuously surrounded and aimed for suffocating by its
enemies... We wish to live in peace with all nations in the Balkans...
There is nothing abnormal in the existence of one harmonious society,
which is built by different cultures and ethnoses. On the contrary - the
reverse is admired. It is a real disgrace to suppress and eliminate
minorities in the name of national unity. Let's respect these minorities,
as we respect each citizen of Greece. We do not need neither to eliminate
them, nor to assimilate them. On the contrary, we insist they have the
same rights and opportunities as each one of us and support their specific
rights as language, religion and politics, emerging from their ethnic
base. Finally, isn't it this that the Greek Government requests constantly
from other nations, where Greek minorities live?" /the ,,Elefterotipiya"
Helsinki proclaimed the inviolable borders within Europe, but also
proclaimed the universal human rights. According this universal principle,
representing the active international law, we have the full moral and
legal reason to request recovery of Bulgarian churches and schools and
freedom to use the mother-tongue for our fellow- nationals in Aegean
Macedonia. It is sad that at the end of the XX century Bulgarians born in
Aegean Macedonia cannot go to visit relatives, grand and great-grand
children. I repeat again: it is in the interest of the Greek state to
stop denationalizing the Bulgarian population in Aegean Macedonia.
Only thus shall be open the future for normal relations between Greece and
Bulgaria, disregarding what political parties are in power. Only thus can
Greece depend on Bulgaria in any circumstances. Let us not forget the
Bulgarian saying that the neighbor is more important than the relative.
Let the Athens authorities finally understand that we are not enemies of
the Greek state, which proclaims to be the cradle of democracy. We only
want that democracy is also valid for Bulgarians in Aegean Macedonia. Let
people in Greece do not forget that thousands of Bulgarians have fought
for the independence of Greece twice and also learn something that is
hidden from Greek society: during World War II Tzar Boris III did not
accept the offer of Mussolini to have Italy and Bulgaria attack Greece
simultaneously and his proposal that Bulgaria ,,overtakes all
territories she thinks are hers".
The answer of Tzar Boris was the following: ,,0ur destiny is to live
with our neighbors and we do not wish to use their suffering. We want
revision of treaties which is done in a peaceful way".
And let them not forget the inscription at Filipy near Drahmas, through
which Khan Presian warns: ,,God sees him that Seeks truth, but also
sees him that lies. Bulgarians have done many good deeds to the
Byzantines, but they have forgotten them! But God sees!"
