1...War spoils ? from Ottoman Turks...Greeks ejected the eastern asiatic oriental Musulmen Turk from Greek-Hellenic ancestral lands. The ancient region of real Macedonia returned back to the fold, back in Greek-Hellenic hands!
2...Greece did what Serbia did, what Bulgaria did and what other Balkan nations did. There are No "Ethnic Macedonians," in the same way, there are No Ethnic Spartans or Ethnic Athenians or Ethnic Texans or Ethnic Bavarians. Macedonia(n) is an ancient archaic regional tribal name applicable to Northern Greeks, not to foreign people who seek to usurp that name for their new country, nationality, language and ethnicity...Macedonia(n) is regional-geographic Identity, Not Ethnic, Not National Identity!
The exile of "Ethnic Macedonians"...The was No "exile" and there are No "Ethnic Macedonians." Greco-Slavs, Greek born Slavs who resisted Hellenization willingly and voluntarily left Greece for Canada, USA or Australia for economic and for other reasons. The population exchanges were not "masked" they were organized and legitimized by treaty!
3...The type of harrassment typical of Balkan nations, who have never really learned to tolerate outsiders in the same way they are tolerated, accomodated in the west...The Ottoman Turk put the region to sleep for more than 400 years, Southeastern European people are not as developed in the Humanities fields as say...Britain or France or Germany!
4...Exiled ??? More like they ran because they had to...Greek Communists fled Greece followed by Greco-Slavs, Greek born Slavs who together with YugoSlav Communists attempted to destabilize Greece, this is called Treason in most cases and if caught, they would have faced charges of disloyalty to the Greek-Hellenic state for their Treacherous acts. There was No Exile, this event never occured except in the imagination of those who attempt to mollify treason!
5...Greeks do not recognize Macedonian Ethnicity...People declaring themselves that way could not enter Greece, those that tried were known trouble-makers. Greece like any other European country does not permit known trouble-makers to enter the country,
which country in Europe would do that willingly, allow people to enter the country knowing they would stir and agitate in order to cause trouble!
6...Long Live Macedonia and Macedonians...Greek-Hellenic and Proud.
"So in order to achieve a form of ethnic composition the Greek state decied to move massive amounts from Greek immigrants from Asia Minor and Pontus having escaped the turkish slaughter to the region of Macedonia.
Very good appraisal of the Macedonian question, however you need to make this point very clear, crystal clear in fact...1.5 Million Anatolian Greeks from the Pontos and Asia Minor were actually settled all over Greece, they were not dumped in Macedonia!
As far as I am aware...600,000 settled in Macedonia and some of them, left shortly afterwards for America and Canada...
...unless you know a different story!
