Words and Names that Matter
The home page of the Hellenic Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
located at http://www.mfa.gr
As we had reported last year, the Turkish Ministry of
Foreign Affairs was the only Turkish government body that
had established a web server on the internet. We also went
on to report on the propaganda presented there, and the
absence of presence of any Hellenic site(s) that answered
those preposterous claims (which is what lead to the
creation of this site).
Following this period of technological narcosis, the
Hellenic government went on to create servers for many of
its ministries. One of these ministries, the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs, was supposed to present the Hellenic
viewpoint on many of the issues that affect our nation,
region, and/or world.
While Turkish sites are referring to liberated Hellenic
cities and regions by their occupational names, Hellenic
servers (and politicians) stood in silence. Hellenic names
like Xanthi and Komotini were soon replaced by mongoloid
names like "Iskece" and "Gumulcine", and the world became
witness to the "suffering" of the "Turkish" minority in
liberated Western Thrace.
The world also went on to read or listen to the humiliating
remarks of European, American, and Turkish politicians, with
regard to Hellenic actions and policies. "It is true that
early civilization passed from Greece to the West thousands
of years ago." Cried former Turkish Prime Minister and now
Minister of Foreign Affairs Deniz Baykal, "We just wish they
kept some for themselves."
While the Turkish ministry was guided by a man with obvious
intents, the Hellenic ministry was guided by an individual
who publicly calls our Armed Forces "incompetent"! This
same individual, Mr. Pangalos, has also publicly stated that
only possible outcome of a war with Turkey would be defeat.
Supposing that what Mr. Pangalos is even in part correct,
one would ask what action he or this administration is
taking to correct such a situation. Not a week has passed by
since the highest officials of our armed forces threatened
But the defeatist mentality is not one that plagues only Mr.
Pangalos. The entire government and most of "our"
politicians share this mental illness, and try their best to
perpetuate it to the public. That is what one would conclude

server, and see Constantinople being referred to as only

"Istanbul", it replaced it with the name "Istanbul" (in
parenthesis) next to the rightful name of Constantinople.
This occurs in every reference to Constantinople, and not

Why British Beef is Worth More than Macedonia, Thrace,
Cyprus, and the Aegean Combined...
British Prime Minister John Major, who took the appropriate
actions to defend the interests of his nation.
Two months after the European Union's decision to place a
ban on British beef, the British government took active
steps to lift the ban. The decision by itself is not that
newsworthy, but the method with which they plan on forcing
the lifting of the ban is.
British Prime Minister John Major, announced that Britain
will bring every single EU action, decision, and legislation
to a crawl, by not voting on issues that require an
unanimous member state vote. Again, this decision by the
British Prime Minister does not affect the Hellenic nation
to any great extent, but one should compare that decision to
Hellenic ones on vital national interests.
When Hellas had an "embargo" in place against FYROM (we all
know about the "loopholes" intentionally created by the
government), "our" politicians constantly talked about
"pressure" the EU was placing upon us (for the embargo's
lifting). The end outcome of these actions is well known.
When Turkey made claims against Thrace, the Aegean, and more
than 3,000 of our islands, our "partners" not only ignored
our positions, but often sided with the Turkish side. An
option at that time could have been to paralyze the EU (much
like Major plans to do), until the other member states
agreed on the terms set by Hellas for any further dealings
with the Turkish state.
Instead of paralyzing the EU, all these puppets, who call
themselves "leaders", could do was to veto EU funds to
Turkey. And even that attempt seems to be failing, since
many EU members are threatening reprisals against possible
Now if the above national issues are less important than
British beef and the so-called "mad cow decease" (Bovine
Spongiform Encephalopathy), than I would love to hear "our"
politicians debate or explain that to a national audience.
Our Nation is above all, and if that means the destruction
of the imperialist EU and its privileged states, than so be
Imia and the "Gray Area" of the Aegean
Mr. Lamprakos and the wreath laid in honor of the 3
servicemen who gave their lives for God and country.
Incidentally, the two flags in this picture were the ones
that sparked the entire controversy, and the government's
Not three full months had passed since the Imia crisis, and
the new action of the Hellenic government proved what our
submission resulted in. What I am referring to of course is the
new "status quo" in the Aegean, and the "gray area" or
"neutral zone" which was created following the crisis.
In honor of the three servicemen, Panagiotis Blahakos, Ektoras
Gialouos, and Christos Karathanasis,that gave their lives at
Limnia, the Federation of Hellenic Societies of
Greater New York, and her president Vasilios Stathakos,
decided to lay a wreath in the area where the helicopter
fell, as well as on the islet of Imia. The wreath was also
decorated on each side by an American and Hellenic flag
(similar to the Federation's logo).
The wreath and flags were placed on the islet by Mr.
Lamprakos and Mr. Economou, who were escorted to the islet
by TELE CITY journalist, Mr. Spiridaki. Their action,
whether politically motivated or not, represented the loss
and affection felt by the Hellenic nation as a whole. But
due to the concessions made on the night of January 31, the
raising of our flag on that Hellenic soil is not permitted!
While Turkish citizens were smuggling drugs and illegal
immigrants in the Aegean, the Hellenic government saw fit to
send two Coast Guard vessels to remove the flag(s)! I can
assure you that had the Federation's representatives left
only the American flag behind, that flag would still be
standing. But as always, the Hellenic government had an
excuse to cover their once-again traitorous act. They
described the incident as a "provocation" (like raising a
flag on any Hellenic soil is cause for "provocation"), and
presented the laying of the wreath as a "raising of the
flag". Mind you that the flag(s) in question are smaller
than those carried by schoolchildren in parades around the
world (as indicated by the picture)!
Many will say: "The three are lost, let's not lose any
others". I will then advise them to talk to the parents of
those that have come before these three. The mothers of
those who have lost their boys to the blue waters of the
Aegean, while defending not "rocks", but "air". Or the
mothers of servicemen who have lost their children defending
"rivers" or "ghost-towns." Is this is the Nation of the men
and women who once cried "Eleutheria e Thanatos" - "Liberty or
Death", or is it the nation who will idly stand by and watch
politicians butcher off pieces of land our forefathers gave
their lives for?
U.S. Congress Probes Human Rights in Liberated Thrace
The cover of one of the many books in circulation in Turkey
(and Western Thrace), that call for the creation of an
Islamic Turkish state in our liberated Thrace.
On April 25, a United States Congress sub-committee held
hearings concerning human rights practices in Western
Thrace. Although Hellenic and American politicians, who so
love the political - monetary - contributions and votes of
Hellenes, rushed to prove the "informality" of such
proceedings, serious actions by the Hellenic and Turkish
governments proved otherwise. As did the fact that a total of 15 House
Representatives and Senators took part in the proceedings.
On Capitol Hill, "representatives" of the Muslim minority
wasted no time when they tried presenting the economic
hardships of the region as racist practices against the
"Turkish" minority. At the same time, puppets of the Turkish
military regime spread their propaganda in liberated Thrace
about the "upcoming revolution", and the fact that the
"West" recognized their "just" struggle.
The fact that the Muslim minority (which is composed of
Turkic, Pomac, and Romanic ethnic groups) has increased in
size from about 85,000 to 120,000 , is ignored. Just as
ignored as the fact that the Hellenic population of Turkey
(in the same period of time) shrank from about 500,000
people, to a minuscule population of about 3,000 (who are mostly elderly).
The Hellenic government, instead of taking the initiative
and demanding equal rights for the Hellenes of occupied
Eastern Thrace, Constantinople, Imbro, Tenedo, Asia Minor,
and Cyprus, it sent the Prime Minister and his "following"
to the region to put up a "show" for their American and
At the same time, the Turkish government grabbed the
opportunity to once again make claims against Hellas and
Western Thrace. Following the ceremonies and "titles" given
to the widow of Ahmet Sadik (as leader of the "Islamic State
of Western Thrace"), and the countless books and pamphlets
about independence in the region, we now have to contend
with the "legalization" the Congressional hearing provided
to the above expansionist actions.
Following the Imia crisis, one would imagine that "our"
politicians and "allies" would have gained a little bit of
wisdom out of that event. All we see as Hellenic patriots is
an attack on every front, and no real counter action and
defense by "our" incompetent politicians.
Zionists and Mongols - Butchers of Hellenism
Pictures of the suffering imposed upon the innocent civilians of
In a move that surprised many of our ovine "leaders", the
states of Israel and Turkey signed a military "cooperation"
agreement this past February. As we see it here, it is a
logical move by two of the biggest terrorist states on the
face of the earth.
This agreement will allow the Israeli air force to use
Turkey's airspace and military bases for the "training" its
combat pilots. It should be noted that Israel's IAI (Israeli
Aircraft Industries) is upgrading 54 Turkish Air Force F-4E
Phantom II's to the Phantom 2000 level, and also providing
Turkey with advanced missile systems.
Confirming the deal, Defense Minister Oltan Sungurlu said
the facility had been recognized to the Jewish state "in
view of its limited airspace" . He also went on to say that
Athens' reported military cooperation
agreement with Syria was against the alliance solidarity
within NATO and that it had to be debated at the relevant
But not a few months went by, and the terrorist Jewish state
showed the world the true nature of this agreement.
Following the heinous attacks against civilian targets in
southern Lebanon, Turkish news agencies reported that Jewish
planes attacked "PKK training centers" established by the
The fact that these two butchering and terrorist states are
ready to do the dirty deeds of the other was also evident by
the Israeli Air Force's numerous violations of Nicosia FIR,
in conjunction with the Turkish violations of Cyprus'
According to the Mr. Taki Hadzidimitriou, President of the
Cypriot Parliamentary Committee on Defense, "violations of
Nicosia FIR by Israeli fighter aircraft is more common than
are the violations by Turkish aircraft"!
Isn't it hypocritical for a people who say that they will
"never forget", to ally themselves with a state who is
directly responsible for the murder of 20,000 Kurds in just
the past decade (not to mention the millions of Hellenes,
Armenians, Arabs, etc. in its not so distant past)?
What is there left to say about our other "allies", who so
value international "law". Was it not the United States that
started bombing Serbian targets after the "market blast"
(which was never proven to be the result of Serbian
actions)? Where are they today when Israeli aircraft and
guns destroy UN camps and civilian targets, taking along
with them the lives of hundreds of innocent men, women, and children?
Don't allow our "friends" or the myth of "international law"
fool you. The only way to protect Hellenism is to behead the
serpents that stand in the way of our glory. Victory will be
ours because we will achieve it alone, just like we have
done so in the past!
Jews Crucify Jesus for yet a Second Time
The cover of U.S. magazine Time. Similar front covers appeared in
numerous other publications.
Just a week before Orthodox Christians around the world were
to celebrate the resurrection of our Savior Jesus Christ,
the Jewish controlled media began its ruthless propaganda
war against Christianity.
In a move that surprised many, the major news services,
papers, magazines, television stations and other media
around the world presented a "debate" as to the validity of
the resurrection of Christ. Most of the stories discussed
the new "proof" against the Biblical description, as well as
the opinions (which were reported as being Christian fact)
of heretics and skeptics.
As expected, the origin of this attack against Christianity
was non other than Israel. According to the Israeli
"archeologist" Joe Zias, Christ was not resurrected, but
rather "was buried with his mother Mary and Joseph in one
tomb." He explains his position by indicating that a family
tomb was found in Jerusalem bearing their names, and that
this has never happened in the past!
Adding to the above blasphemous statements are the
"professors" who compromise the "Jesus Seminar", which met
in the Flamingo Resort Hotel Ballroom in Santa Rosa,
California, late last year. According to these "scholars",
Judas was not alone in the betrayal of Jesus, and that other
Apostles helped him.
We should make note here of what kind of "scholars" these
members of the "Jesus Seminar" really are. One member (Paul
Verhoeven), is a director of such pornographic material as
was the movie "Showgirls". The rest have similar "scholarly"
If a Christian were to say anything against the Jews or
their faith (any time of the year), they would be labeled
"racist" and "anti-Semitic" by the media they so love to
control. When they make such blatantly blasphemous comments
about our Savior, we accept it and even start a "dialogue"
about the "validity" of such remarks.
Hellas Signs Away Rights of Northern Epirot Hellenes
One of the many maps circulated by Albanians, showing the extent of
the "Albanian" populated areas. This map was presented on this page last
In a signing ceremony that took place on March 21st 1996,
the Hellenic government signed an agreement with the
Albanian government that documents the treason perpetrated
One of the key areas of concern is the "legalization" of an
Albanian "community" within Hellas. The current
administration has taken steps to legalize the more than
300,000 illegal Albanian refugees, and to provide them with
the social "safety net" reserved for our own citizens (which
is lacking to begin with).
Other than the social services that the Albanians will enjoy
off the sweat and suffering of the Hellenic nation, they
will also be allowed to open "cultural" centers and schools.
At the present time, 2 Albanian schools already operate in
As one can read from Article 15 of the
Hellenic-Albanian Agreement , the two sides must remove "all
barriers" which prevent the "enjoyment of personal property" in the
neighboring state. This is yet another confirmation of what
we have been saying about the Albanian attempts of creating
an "Arvanite" minority in Hellas, and the inability of "our"
government to do anything decisive to stop Albanian
propaganda and expansionism.
Although the agreement was hailed by some as a "victory" for
the Hellenic community of Northern Epirus, one need only
take a closer look at the agreement to discover the truth.
Hellenic schools will be allowed in only 99 villages in
Northern Epirus. Of those, if enrollment drops below 32
pupils for any one year, the schools will be closed.
One can clearly see that the solution for our oppressed
Hellenic brothers of Northern Epirus is one. Autonomy and
eventual union with our Mother Patrida.
President Stephanopoulos Ignores the Elimination of Hellenic Minority
As reported many times by the Hellenic Nationalist Page,
there is a systematic attempt by numerous governments
(including the Hellenic one), to "eliminate" the Hellenic
population of Northern Epirus, reduce their numbers, and/or
ignore the hardships they endure by the Albanian
While the evidence is clearly there, it doesn't seem to
affect Mr. Stephanopoulos delusions that relations between
Hellas and Albania are "resolved". President Stephanopoulos
went to the extreme of actually visiting Albania this week,
even though at that same time, Hellenic schools at Dropoli
and Fastrani were being set ablaze by Albanian "unknowns"!
Mr. Stephanopoulos was ready to make so many concessions to
the Albanians, that he was even allowed to address the
entire Albanian parliament. And there was a good reason for
the Albanians to let him do so. According to a report by the
Albanian radio on Wednesday March 13th, officials in Tirana
hope to sign an agreement on legalizing the illegal Albanian
emigrants working in Greece! Referring to a recent Albanian
decision to lift visas for Greek citizens, Engjell Dakli,
Minister of Labor and Immigration, urged Greece to
reciprocate, at least for the Albanian "businessmen".
But the reaction of Hellenic Patriots around the world was
an indication of what Hellas and Hellenism means to us, and
the extent to which we will go to protect them. Following
the calls of Konitsa's Metropolitan Andreas, Hellenic
organizations around the world condemned the visit of Mr.
Stephanopoulos to Tirana. But, as expected, the last people
the Hellenic government would listen to is the people they
are supposed to represent.
U.S. Government Takes Another Stab at Hellenism
The seal of the US Department of State.
On March 6th of this year, the U.S. State
Department released its 1995 country reports on "Human Rights
Practices". With great anticipation, politicians around the
world (with "ours" being first in line) awaited to see the
"report card" handed out to them by their master.
I will not spend (waste) your time pointing out the
hypocrisy of having a country like the US commenting and
judging the actions of the Hellenic government or Hellas'
security forces. I believe that the US should spend her
resources more wisely by locating and solving issues of
concern on her soil.
But let us now focus on the parts of the report(s) that
vindicate the positions expressed previously on the Hellenic
Not less than a month ago, we reported on the "ethnic
cleansing" of the Hellenic community of Northern Epirus, by
the CIA. Today, we have information that implicates the US
State Department, and thus the entire US government.
Under the 1995 Country Report for Albania,
the "National/Racial/Ethnic" composition of Albania consists of
80,000 "ethnic Greeks". Compared to the national population
of 3,413,904 (CIA 1995 estimate), the Hellenes of Northern
Epirus represent 2.3% of Albania's population! This
figure is even lower than the one reported by the CIA for
this year, and definitely lower than the 8% reported in
Although the Department of State seems to have a problem
accounting for the ethnic Hellenes ("Greeks"), it seems to
have no problem locating "ethnic Macedonians". If this is
not yet another confirmation that the lifting of the
Hellenic embargo against the Skopje regime created a de facto
recognition of FYROM as "Macedonia", then I don't know what is.
Speaking of FYROM, it should be noted that
according to the State Department (meaning US, and of course including the
Athens and Skopje governments), there are no ethnic Hellenes in
(what is referred to only by Hellas as) FYROM. I should
mention that all Macedonian organizations and societies around
the world have demanded that the Hellenic government
recognize and protect the Hellenes in FYROM.
I must admit that the greatest surprise in all of these
reports was the opening paragraph for the Country
Report on Cyprus. "Cyprus has been divided since the Turkish military
intervention of 1974, following a coup d'etat directed from
Greece". If this is what our "friends" have to say about the
issue, I hate to see the outcome of any US-led negotiations
to bring "peace" to the island. Reading the report one gets
the impression that both "authorities" on the island are
viewed as equals. It seems that U.N. resolutions matter
little when the "mighty" State Department releases its
It is about time the Hellenic people recognized the betrayal
of the Hellenic governments. We should not "lift" our
embargo (against FYROM or anyone else), when the U.S. holds
one against Cuba for three decades, or when Turkey holds one
against Armenia. We should not sit at a negotiating table,
when the people "running" it are directly responsible for
the Cyprus invasion of 1974, and the continued military
build-up and aggression of Turkey. We will only succeed when
we put Hellas first!
Spies Roam Free in the Aegean
In perhaps another blow by our "friends" and "allies", two
spies from Italy and the Netherlands were caught and
expelled from Hellas this month.
The Hellenic government on Friday March 1st, requested Italy
and the Netherlands recall their military attaches in
Athens, after the two diplomats were caught collecting
military-related information on the east Aegean island of
Lesvos three days before the Imia islet crisis.
According to the Hellenic government, the two spies had
"diplomatic immunity", and could not be prosecuted!
The Italian defense ministry said in a statement Saturday
that it had given its attaché in Athens, Colonel Mario
Volpicelli, a "period of leave in Italy." The statement
continued stating that "Volpicelli's conduct has always been
in line with the existing relations between a friendly and
allied country like Greece," it said, adding that it was
"deeply surprised by the blown-up episode."!
Dutch Foreign Minister Hans van Mierlo called the incident a
"small storm in a large teacup." In any case, the Dutch
"diplomat" involved has been recalled to the Netherlands
The inaction and cover-up by the Hellenic government is yet
another indication of who is in charge in Hellas.
Turkey Threatens International Press Agencies
Publications around the world presented the barbaric actions of the
Turkish state, as shown above.
Turkish Deputy Foreign Minister Onur Oyman has announced
that the Turkish government will take legal action against
press institutions, like CBS for "deliberately smearing
Turkey." Oyman's statement, which was delivered at a
January 16th press conference in Ankara, follows the
broadcast of a segment on the CBS news show, 60 Minutes,
calling attention to the ongoing human rights violations
against the Kurdish minority in Turkey. CBS stated that it
stands by its report.
Turkish Foreign Ministry officials have also announced their
intention to sue two European newspapers, The European and
the Scottish paper, Daily Record, for "attempting to defame
Turkey" in reports about Turkey's military campaign against
the Kurds and allegations of drug trading by Turkish
diplomats. The European, in particular, has come under
heavy attack from the Turkish government for publishing
photos of Turkish soldiers holding up, in triumph, the
decapitated heads of two Kurds.
It should be noted that on Sunday March 3rd, CBS made a
public apology during the broadcast of the show "60
Minutes", because they presented a Turkish flag with a scull
in the foreground (during the initial airing of the segment
on Turkish genocide against the Kurds). I suppose that for
CBS, a "graphic" presented on national television is more
"offensive" than the fact that almost 20,000 Kurds have been
murdered by Turkish military and paramilitary troops.
Turks of Bulgaria Join Attila
Portion of US CIA map indicating the areas of Bulgaria
(marked in brown) in which Turks constitute the majority of
According to a report by Bulgaria's largest newspaper, 24
Hours, there are approximately 2,000 Turks from Bulgaria who
are currently serving in the ranks of the Turk-Cypriot
Due to the mass exodus of Turk-Cypriots from the
economically devastated and politically oppressive occupied
"North", the Denktas "government" has taken measures to
assure the demographic survival of the Turkish element on
the island of Cyprus.
For years now reports by Turkish and international press
agencies and government bodies have supplied evidence of the
mass migration of "mainland" Turks to the island, and the
mass emigration of the local Turkish element.
According to published estimates, about 75,000 to 85,000
"mainland" Turks have moved to the occupied territories, to
supplement the departure of the Turk-Cypriot population.
What the recent 24 Hours report shines light on is the
"benefits" the Denktas regime is using to lure Turks to the
occupied territories, as well as the "requirements" it has
of these individuals.
Some of the benefits outlined in the report include
employment and monetary compensation, citizenship and
passports that allow migration to Turkey, as well as
"aiding" in attempts to obtain working visas for European
(EU) nations like Britain and Germany. It should be noted
that all paperwork and "visas" obtained in the occupied
territories are considered valid and legal in Turkey and all
her embassies and consulates abroad.
If a Turk from Bulgaria is to accept such an "agreement", he
is expected to serve at least four times a year in the Turk-Cypriot
occupational forces. He must also place himself in
the service of the occupational "government" in case of
conscription or war.
At the same time all of the above is taking place, we have
Hellenes in Cyprus and (the rest of) Hellas that have dreams
of another "Davos" or imminent resolution! If 22 years is
not enough time to awaken them and the Hellenic spirit, then
maybe another 400 years of Mongoloid occupation might...
Where Korea Leads Hellas
While the Hellenic nation is in a deep narcosis with the
"crumbs" handed down to it by the corrupt political
establishment, other nations demand more of themselves and
their elected representatives.
In an exclusive report presented in the Hellenic media only
by the Hellenic Nationalist Page, information will be presented
that links international weapons manufacturers with
governments around the world!
According to Korean government and judicial documents
presented by KBS News (of Korea), bribes of enormous
proportions were made by F-16 manufacturers and
subcontractors to Korean officials. One such document
specifically implicates Aselsan
of Turkey (an electronics sub-contractor for the F-16 Fighting Falcon).
The Korean judicial system does not bow under political
pressure, and has taken steps to indict and implicate former
presidents Roh Tae Woo and Kim Dae Jung. How does this
action compare to the ones the Hellenic judicial system
After years of litigation, no information came forward (or
became public) regarding the international multi-billion
dollar enterprises that stole the bread and water of the
Hellenic tax-payer. To this day, the Hellenic public does
not know how much they paid for each Mirage 2000 (simple
question, no?), because of a clause in the agreement with
Dassault-Breguet of France that prevents the disclosure of
Information such as the involvement of Turkish companies in
the F-16 deal or the non-compliance of Lockheed/General
Dynamics in the transfer of technologies to Hellas never
seemed to bother much the two major political parties and
our parliamentarians. The only issues on their agenda was
mutual "amnesties" from prosecution for numerous and
internationally embarrassing scandals.
It seems that the Korean government values the lives of the
Hellenes (and others) that fought for the survival of their
state. How do we as Hellenes value our dead? By turning this
land they fought and died for into a "protectorate" of the
US and EU, and a cesspool of political corruption?
Treason in the Aegean

The barbaric mongoloid "journalists" that planted the Turkish flag on
The coffin of one of the three Hellenic servicemen, who gave their
lives for the protection of our nation and flag.
Turkish aggression reached a new high this week, as did the
sell-out of the Hellenic nation. The fact that the Turkish
side shows no respect for Hellenic sovereignty is not the
shock in this situation. What is shocking is the stance of
the Hellenic government which for years now has been
ignoring repeated violations of Hellenic territorial
airspace, waters, and lands (with the climax being the
landing of Turkish troops on Imia).
Imia (or Limnia) was ceded to Italy in 1932,
and to Hellas in 1947 with the Treaty of Paris,
following the Second World War. Contesting the validity of the
Italo-Turkish and Helleno-Italian agreements is nothing more than an
excuse needed to set Turkish expansionist plans in motion.
But recognizing the ambitions of the Turkish state is only
the first step. But even that first step, most politicians
(politikantides) refuse to take! The recent "action" at Imia
was not an isolated incident. It was but a progression in
the long term plans of the Turks for domination in the
But who can blame the Turks in this recent event? For the
past two decades, the Turkish military has violated Hellenic
airspace, territorial waters, lands in Evro and Cyprus, has
murdered and/or "kidnapped" soldiers in Evro and Cyprus, and
so forth. In all those hundreds if not thousands of
incidents, how many times has the Hellenic side taken any
serious measures to discourage Turkish aggression?
When Turkish pilots violate Hellenic airspace, why doesn't
the government allow our pilots to shoot the violators out
of the sky? The US Navy had the audacity to shoot down an
Iranian passenger jet over international airspace because it
was "approaching" it, and yet we can't take similar action
against fighter planes that over-fly our islands, or harass
civilian aircraft. No, if the "poor" Turkish pilots happen
to crash, we treat them like welcomed guests!
But let us not focus on the past. Let us pay attention to
the most recent treason the Hellenic people are asked to
accept. Following the early developments on Imia in which a
Turkish helicopter removed the Hellenic flag and replaced it
with a Turkish one, the government sent nothing short of an
entire armada. Now, one wonders why the Hellenic government
didn't simply ask for the extradition of the pilot and crew
of that aircraft. Regardless of what Turkey might want to
believe, ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization)
clearly indicates that Imia falls within Athens FIR (Flight
Information Regulations). Thus, the helicopter that landed
on Imia was in clear violation of international aeronautical
laws (regardless of whether Turkey wants to call the island
theirs or not).
But in an ignorant move with absolutely minimal or no
military significance, the government (whether that means
Simitis, Arsenis or Limperis), ordered the placement of
troops on Imia (only one of the two islets), and sent an
"armada" to the region. This move was clearly done to
generate support for the new government more than anything
else. The mission (of preventing Turkish troops/civilians from
landing on Imia), could have easily been accomplished with just a
couple of missile boats.
But how could the Turkish commandos land on Imia then? The
fact remains that this "crisis" was not handled as a
military one, rather as a political one. When first reports
of the Turkish assault were made public, government
spokesmen stated that "Hellenic ships intercepted the
Turkish troops prior to reaching the island". Regardless of
the lies they tried to present, the fact remains that
Hellenic troops were ordered not to fire, unless fired upon.
Following the eventual recognition by the government that
Turkish troops did indeed land on Imia, the Chief of Staff
Mr. Limperis (A/GEETHA) suggested that the removal of the 10
Turkish commandos would take more than 3 hours! This while
an entire armada was around the island! According to Mr.
Limperi, it was too dark for operations, and special bombs
were needed. Now either Mr. Limperi is an ignorant
individual, or he's a liar. I'd have to say yes to both.
The Hellenic troops on the second island were equipped with
night surveillance and targeting equipment. They were in a
position to recognize and attack the Turkish troops. The Hellenic
Army also had Apache attack helicopters in the area, which have
the equipment and weaponry to handle such a minor operation like
the removal of those 10-12 Turkish commandos. The Navy as well was
in a position to shell the island at a moments notice. As far as the
Air Force, both the A-7 and F-16 are capable of night attack missions.
And regarding the special bombs he was referring to, the Hellenic Air
Force has an ample supply of cluster bombs (not that a
conventional 500 lb. bomb wouldn't have done the job). The
simple answer is that Hellenic troops witnessed the landing,
and did nothing as ordered to.
One would wonder how Mr. Limperis obtained such a high
ranking position in our armed forces. Well... the answer is
simple. It is the Hellenic brand of "democracy". Following
the last election in which PASOK replaced New Democracy,
Mr. Papandreou forced into retirement the most high ranking
officers of our armed forces, and replaced them with retired
officers of his liking (without making military
considerations like the fact that most were in retirement
for decades). This of course in not a "new" practice, since
previous administrations have done the same.
Following the "divine" intervention of the US, the Hellenic
side announced the withdrawal of all troops from the region,
and the removal of our flag from Imia (not to mention reports
of a Hellenic "compromise" on the issues of the Aegean territorial
extent, and the military status of Hellenic Aegean islands). In
another attempt to appease America and the Turks (anyone but the
Hellenic people), the government removed a Hellenic flag from
Hellenic soil! And yet Mr. Simitis has the audacity to say
that it is our "right" to do so, and that we did so because
we could not "protect" the flag! If he honestly believes
that our armed forces cannot protect a flag on one of our
islands, then all the prime ministers, cabinet members, and
parliamentarians of the past two decades should be rounded
up and shot for treason. But that is far from the truth. In
his desperate attempt to excuse his incompetence and
treason, he is trying to present our forces as weak, and a
war against Turkey as "unwinable".
Mr. Simitis also suggested that the only "options" that he
had was either "peace" or "war". It seems that Mr. Simitis
requires an education on limited military confrontations, as
well as the use of military force as a deterrent to war. But
suppose war did break out... was it not Pericles that said
"Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the
courage to defend it"?
But I think that the best quote that describes the current
situation was once spoken by Demosthenes. In his infinite
wisdom he said "Beware lest in your anxiety to avoid war,
you obtain a master"!
CIA "Cleanses" Hellenic Minority in Northern Epirus
Portion from a map of ethnic minorities in Eastern Europe, as
published by the US CIA.
If one thought that ethnic cleansing was accomplished with
barbaric violent means (as was the case in 1923, 1955, 1974
etc.), then one should spend the time to focus and learn
about the current situation Hellenes of Northern Epirus are
After years of pressure from the European Union and the
United States, the past two Hellenic administrations
followed a policy of "approachment" towards the Albanian
side. Of course, such an approachment would find a great
stumbling block - the human rights violations against the
Hellenes in Northern Epirus.
Northern Epirus (although still in foreign hands), was
liberated twice this century alone by Hellenic forces. The
existence of this huge Hellenic community (ranging in excess
of well over 200,000), is now being disputed by the Albanian
government, the CIA, and even the Hellenic government!
As far as the Albanian government is concerned, their
actions surprise no-one. Their dreams of a "Greater
Albania", which would include areas of Vardaria ("FYROM")
and Kossovo, would be greatly faltered if they faced
insurrections or ethnic tensions in the south.
The Hellenic government instead of protecting the ethnic
Hellenes currently in Albania, it has turned a blind eye to
their hardships and suffering. Instead of aiding their fight
for more rights and even autonomy, it has aided the Albanian
government in arresting and detaining dissidents of that
In an interesting development, the Hellenic Nationalist Page
has discovered publications and images by US government
agencies (CIA), that are aiding in the elimination of the
Hellenes of Northern Epirus.
On the CIA's server, and
under the Albanian country report for 1993,
one can see an 8% Greek minority under ethnic divisions. Under the same
report but for 1995, the Greek minority is
listed as constituting only 3% of the population!
If the information presented by the CIA is in fact true,
where did that 5% of Albania's population go? We are talking
about a mass "migration" (ethnic cleansing) of about 170,000
The CIA report also makes note that 20% of Albania's
population follows the Greek Orthodox faith (both in 1993
and 1995). If 5% of the Albanian population (ethnic
Hellenes) "disappeared", and going under the assumption that
the vast majority of the Hellenes are Orthodox, how come the
percent of Orthodox believers didn't change? Did 170,000
Muslim, catholic, and atheist ethnic Albanians convert?
But no, the answer is quite simple. In both reports (as well
as the one for 1992), under ethnic divisions it clearly
states that it is an estimate made in 1989. Do
1989 estimates change every few years? Or is it that the US
government (just like the Albanian and Hellenic) are trying
to make the Hellenic minority "disappear"?
Another interesting document discovered was a "detailed" map
of the ethnic groups in Eastern Europe. As one can see from
the section of the map included in this report, the Hellenic
minority is but a "small" one; one comparable to the Turkish
minority in FYROM!! We are not making this up people! The
maps are there for you to see with your own eyes.
An interesting point in the map is that in which the CIA
takes the time to note that Vardaria is called FYROM
(marking it with an asterisk), while at the same time
calling the ethnic group that lives in the country
Macedonians (no Slav or any such junk preceding it).
As reported last year by the Hellenic Nationalist Page, even US President Clinton recognizes a
"Macedonian" nation (of people). But I'm sure the
Hellenic government has an excuse for that as well...
What a shame and what hypocrisy. When a Hellenic pilot flies
a crop-duster over Northern Epirus to focus some
public attention on the oppressed Hellenes there, he is
treated like a criminal. When a Turk violates our FIR, our
air space, our territorial waters, over-flies one of our
islands, and then crashes in our sea, we treat him like a
welcomed diplomat! These are the people that govern us.
Frost & Sullivan Predict "Dictatorship"
The international marketing consulting company,
Frost & Sullivan, just recently
published its predictions for the political and economic future that
Hellas will most likely face in the next five years.
According to the report, Hellenes have grown to distrust most of the
politicians; and recent actions (or better yet - inaction's) have
re-enforced that belief.
According to Frost & Sullivan, there is a 50% possibility that the next
party to rule Hellas will be the New Democracy party (ND). But following
at a close second is the Panhellenic Socialist Party (PASOK) with a 40%
The fact that one of these two parties will rule over the Hellenic
people is of no big surprise. What people should take note of is the 10%
probability of a military lead coup to overthrow the government (according
to the Frost & Sullivan report). Of course the report refers to this as a
"junta" or a "dictatorship", but one must look deeper into this (possible)
What the Hellenic people are calling for is a true reformist revolution.
And if the leading two parties continue with their present policies, such
a revolution will take place with the willing support of our armed
This page nor its authors support any movement or government that does
not follow the wishes and beliefs of its people. What we call for is for
the current leaders and Parliamentarians to implement the changes required
(by the people) so as to make a coup of any kind unnecessary.
