The ancient warrior king Alexander the Great, was neither Greek nor Macedonian but Albanian, Nijazi Muhamedi, an author, said at the launch  of  his book 'Albanian Macedonia', this week.

Calling the controversial state funded Macedonian Encyclopaedia released by the Macedonian Academy of Arts and Sciences, MANU, a “failure” and an “unfortunate publication”, Muhamedi argued that he wanted to correct misconceptions of Albanian history and to combat the many attempts to steal historical figures from them.

He said that his book came as a direct reaction to the Macedonian Encyclopaedia, published earlier this year and then withdrawn after outrage among ethnic Albanians over passages referring to them as settlers in Macedonia and “Shiptari”, a derogatory term.

“The goal is to show unity because Albanians have always been part of this state”, Muhamedi said.

Nijazi also provoked controversy by suggesting that the renowned composer Todor Skalovski and the famous writer and poet Mateja Matevski had been wrongfully portrayed as ethnic Macedonians and were in fact Albanian.

Although during their life they had indisputably pronounced themselves Macedonians he said that despite this, their ancestors had been forced to accept a Macedonian identity.

Muhamedi said that he was not motivated nor supported by politicians and that his approach was strictly scientific.

The book is the first part of three volumes, financed by local businessmen from the western Macedonian town of Tetovo which is mainly populated by ethnic Albanians.

Macedonian Albanians make one quarter of the overall population.

The Nationality of Alexander the Great!

To which people belonged Mighty Alexander the Great. Both peoples claim for him. Greeks, SlavoMacedonians, Bulgarians, Serbs. But who was Alexander in reality? Which was his nationality?
It’s clear by ancient sources that Macedonians were never regarded as Greeks, they were Non-Greeks people with distinct language, traditions, political organizations, etc. May we regarded Macedonians as Illyrians, i.e Albanians. “Of all races inhabited Macedonia only Albanians can claim to be authoctnous” asserted Herny Braisford in his book:’Macedonia; it’s races and future’.

The notable Byzantine historian Laonicus Chalcocondylas (1423 – 1490) makes known that: “”I can say that Albanians are nearer to Macedonians than to any other people in the world”.

Alexander the Great in the Historical Memory of Scanderbeg and of the Albanians

The Albanians together with the ancient language and culture have preserved even the memory for the major figures of the past. From the antiquity have remained indelible in the historical memory of the Albanians the two major personalities of that period, Alexander the Great and Pyrrhus of Epirus.
Alexander the Great has been commemorated always with a particular adoration by the Albanians who are the direct inheritors of the non-Greek autochthonous inhabitants of the part of the Illyrian Peninsula which extends in the south of the Danube river (qualified as “barbarian” by the ancient Greek authors), to whom belonged even the inhabitants of the old Macedonia and its history. In the Albanian popular tradition and in the historical heritage he is mentioned mainly as the king Leka the Great. […]
The earliest written testimony for the commemoration of Alexander the Great by the Albanians belongs to the first half of the XIV-th century. It is found in the monumental vokume “The Shkodra Statutes of the First Half of the XIV-th Century”, which in the Ottoman times were called kanune (canon, unwritten customary law), are connected by the Shkodrans with the name of Alexander the Great.
Our National Hero George Castriota Scanderbeg has adored Alexander the Great. He has held as a second personal name the name of Alexander the Great who among the Ottomans has had the corresponding Iskander (Skënder in the Albanian language).[…]
The name of Leka in connection with the customary law and with the legends has a very wide spread in the Upper and Central Albania. This geographical spread is many times greater than the possessions of the noble family of the Dukagjin during the Middle Ages. The name comprises even the possessions of the much powerful aristocratic families and with a much greater role in our mediaeval history as the Dukagjini, as are the Castriots, Balshas, Thopias and Arianits. Even in the mediaeval anthroponomy the name Lekë is used very often by all the Albanians, everywhere they have lived, especially in the regions of Upper and Central Albania.[…]
Shtjefën Gjeçov has left a very important testimony that the “Canon (Kanun) of Pirrit” has been the earliest denomination of the customary law used by the inhabitants of Lower Albania. This denomination is connected with the king Pyrrhus of Epirus. Whereas the denomination “The Canon of Leka” for the Albanian customary law has been an earlier denomination, very rooted and used in the Upper Albania, in the Central one and in wide regions of Lower Albania. The Statutes of Shkoder testify that, since the Middle Ages, the inhabitants of a very important Albanian town have connected their legislation for the organization of their activity with the name of Alexander the Great.
The name Lekë in many toponyms, legends, and, above all, the name Lekë as denomination of the Albanian customary law is the deeper preservation in the historical memory of the Albanians for Alexander the Great.
In this video you will see some incontestable proofs witnessed about true Nationality of Alexander.

Leka i Madh, perndryshe i njohur ne historiografi si Aleksandri i Madh i Maqedonise eshte njera prej figurave me epokale e cila ka ardhur me tere shkelqimin e pashuar prej lashtesise deri ne ditet tona. Misherim i guximit, shpeshhere edhe te marre, Leka i Madh eshte bere nje emer ndryshe per forcen e perkushtimit, mbeshtetjen dhe vetebesimin ne forcen njerezore qe mund te beje cudira. Figura e Lekes se Madh vazhdon ta trazoje ndergjgjen njerezore edhe sot e kesaj dite. Ai vazhdon te mbetet i gjalle neper legjendat dhe kenget shqiptare, neper besimet e legjendat edhe te popujve aziatike e afrikane qe ai pushtoi. Mbi te gjitha, shkelqimin e Lekes duan ta perbaltin Greket dhe SllavoMaqedonet te cilet synojne qe kete figure ta pervetesojne duke e bere hem Grek hem SllavoMaqedon. Per kete edhe ngirhet pluhur gjer ne instancat me te larta shteterore. ‘Kur dy pale grinden, i treti fiton’ thote nje shprehje tjeter. Mirepo, a do jene shqiptaret kesaj rradhe fituesit? Parimisht po, mirepo ne qofte se shqiptaret nuk e kemngulin Leken duke e rishfaqur me tatalitetin e te vertetave historike qe vetem shqiptaret i kane ruajtur, Leka i Madh rrezikon te mos jete i yni. Ndaj, edhe videoja qe do te shikoni eshte nje perpjekje sado modeste per te ndriquar nacionalitetin e vertete te Lekes se Madh – legjendes se te gjitha koherave. SHikim te kendshem!
