Hellenism must established International Congress

Throughout history, Governments-in-exile have been created as a response to occupation, civil war, or when the legitimacy of a government in power comes under fire. The question before the Greek people today is has Greece come to such a point, where the creation of an International Congress of Hellenism must be established to serve as a Government-in-Exile for the Greek Nation. Does the Papademos Government still serve the interests of the people or has the time come to establish such an entity, so as to ensure our nation’s survival? The answer is yes.

The lost descendants of Hellenism: The Antiochian Greeks

To many in the West the Middle East is simply known as the ‘Arab World’. From the Mediterranean Sea to the border of Iran, one language, one religion, one ethnicity divided into modern Nation-States. These states created by the Great Powers at the close of the First World War, however is this reality. Who are these people we know as ‘Arabs’? Just what makes a person an Arab? The truth is that the Arab world is made up of people from various different ancestral origins, religious backgrounds and historic identities lumped together as just simply Arabs. Once one realizes this the question arises to whether Arab Identity is actually more a linguistic, cultural or political identity, rather than an ethnic or racial one.
