Albanian ex-PM berates Hellenism in post over slain Katsifas

A despicable posting on the Albanian social networks against Hellenism was made by a man whom Greece has generously aided in the past, supporting him at a critical moment that his family experienced.

This is a post by Albanian Diaspora Minister (and former Prime Minister) Pandeli Majko, who, according to the Balkan Periscope website on the occasion of the death of Konstantinos Katsifas, wrote that it must be said loud to Greece that "pseudo-Hellenism is one of causes of blood and violence in the Balkans ".

This man, who almost 20 years ago gratefully received the help of the Greek state when his wife had difficulty in her pregnancy and the then Greek government sent a C-130H military aircraft to Tirana to take her to a maternity hospital in Athens and to save her and her child, today berates Hellenism by saying that:

"The Greek State must confront the reality that for two centuries it is violating the rights of modern Greeks who are Arvanites or Albanians in the name of a modern pseudo-Hellenism (helenizmi modern krejte fallco)."

More specifically, the former Prime Minister of Albania and his new Minister for Diaspora made the following remark: "RENEA forces have done their job, as in any country in the world, the one who shoots at police is executed. Congratulations to the family of the young man who, while being Albanian, was transformed into a pseudo-Greek. In Greece, it has to be said strongly that pseudo-Hellenism is one of the causes of blood and violence in the Balkans. If Greece asks for explanations, shouldn't it first explain why a Greek soldier had targeted the Albanian police? "

And Pandeli Majko continues in his post, saying, "The Greek state must be dissociated from such a terrorist act and apologize. The Greek State must confront the reality that for two centuries it is violating the rights of modern Greeks who are Arvanites or Albanians in the name of a modern pseudo Hellenism (helenizmi modern krejte fallco). The Greek state must take measures against the extremist organization of Golden Dawn and ban it by law. "

It is characteristic that at the time, in 1999, Pandeli Majko thanked the Greek government for the help he had been offered and today without any shame berates Greece and Hellenism. What else can one say except what is often said "no one is more ungrateful than one that has benefitted".
