I don't usually link to Serbianna since it is one of the centers of the vast Serbian chauvinist conspiracy against the existence of the Macedonian Orthodox Church, but this story is too much fun to let it pass by. A few years ago, the EU forced Macedonia to re-run its census since there were complaints by the Albanians about under counting their population. The EU experts were led by a Greek statistician. I always thought that this was a way that the EU could demonstrate its total contempt for the Macedonian people. Having a Greek lecture Macedonians about ethnic sensitivity while Greece denies the very existence of Macedonians ... nice! Now we have the Italians coming to teach Macedonians how to fight the mafia. What next ... cooking lessons from the English!

SKOPJE, Macedonia-Italian experts who deal with the Mafia will help train Macedonian police in fighting organized crime as part of a program funded by the European Union, officials said Wednesday.
Justice Minister Mihajlo Manevski said the two-year project will promote contacts with Italy's Ministry of Justice and the International Institute of Higher Studies in Criminal Sciences, based in Sicily, as well as Italian police officers who deal with organized crime."
