The country Greece has only excisted few hundred years, how can you claim Macedonia belonged to Greece? The ancient Macedonians didnt like the people from Athens and vice-versa. In fact, the people from athens referred to them as barbarians :P....just because the language and culture was similar with the ancient macedonians, does not make the macedonians part of modern day greece except by force (the bucharest agreement).
furthermore, IGENEA studies on genes show that the slavic macedonians who mixed with the antic macedonians and got along with them, have more macedonian blood in them than those in northern greece's macedonia
