Macedonia belongs to Greece.
It is historically approved by many historians from all over the world that the people of Skopje are Slavs or other races, but have nothing to do with the people of Alexander the Great!
Macedonians were Greeks and spoke the Greek language. Numerous excavations in all of the ancient Macedonia area have consistently unearthed relics clearly with Greek writings, and depictions of rulers clearly designated with Greek names.
In ancient Greek culture, Macedonians celebrated the same festivals with the rest of the Greeks. They took part in the Olympic games which at the time was only participated in by the Hellenes.
The regions that comprised the area of Macedonia all had Greek names.
Furthermore, the architecture of the palaces, temples, theaters & ancient markets are all characteristic samples of ancient Greek architecture of the time.
These Hellenic structures clearly included Greek writings on them which without a shadow of a doubt prove that they were developed by the Greeks and belonged to the Greeks.
The ancient Macedonians believed in the same 12 Gods of Olympus as the rest of the Hellenes. In addition, the Macedonians fought together with the rest of the Hellenes against barbarians.
To the Greeks at the time, a barbarian was defined as any group of people who did not share the same developed culture. Any group of people outside of civilized Greece was defended against by all of Greece, which included Macedonia. Last but certainly not least, Macedonia was a member of the Delphic Amfictiony, an institution which was open only to Greeks.....
The people of Skopje are Slavs or other races, but have nothing to do with the people of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian Greeks !
