too much to read, but I'll offer this view, in case it hasn't been brought up yet: they wanted to use
letters that do not exist in Lithuanian alphabet. If you allow this, next the Chinese'll want their name
registered in their native alphabet.. and then where would we be?
That's not the point. It is obvious that the letters which are not in Lithuanian alphabet
cannot be used in official documents etc. Poles only want their names to be spellt in Lithuania
as they would be spellt in any other country e.g.: Wleciałowski would be spelled Wlecialowski
in the USA, because there is no "ł" in English, and Żubrzyński would be spellt Zubrzynski in France,
because there is no "Ż" or "ń" in the French alphabet. That's all they ask. But noooooo - Lithuanians
would spell their names Vlecalovièius and Žubrinskas (or something equally stupid.)
They even change the first names of Poles to their Lithuanian equivalents :-)
So, that's the point - they change Polish names into Lithuanian ones. If Poles forced Lithuanians
to use Polish version of their names (i.e. Mikulenas - Mikulenowski), or Germans (Bauer - Bałerowicz)
to do the same, the entire Europe would shake with outrage. However, if Poles are being persecuted
this way, nobody seems to mind.
Lithuanians spell their names in Poland exactly as they would have spellt them in Lithuania (except
for the use of specifically Lithuanian letters, which is understandable). Poles in Lithuania, cannot use
their names without Polish letters, and they have their names translated into ridiculous lituanized versions.
Then there is the matter of bilingual signs, which for some reason are not allowed even in places where
Polish minority is actually a majority
. Then there is the cunning education reform, which will lead
to closing of over 50% of Polish schools in Lithuania and so on, and so on etc. etc.
It looks like Lithuania is purposely trying to enrage Poles and destroy relations with Poland. If that's
what they want, then so be it. We were patient for long enough - it's time to let Lithuanians know that
they can't f*ck us in the arse without lubrication. We should start from selling Polish state owned
property in Lithuania (preferably to Russians.)
