@Slavija Honestly Macedonians are not tolerant ( but why should they be?). They accomodate the Albs because they really have no other choice. When you think about it there are not really all that many Macedonians and as a small nation they have to keep 1/3 of their country ( Albs) appeased. It's not like Serbia. If Macedonia experienced a 'Kosovo-like' situation in Western Macedonia with the Albs they would be in a far weaker position to deal with them than Serbs. Albanians wouldn't just cease a small province but 1/3 to 1/2 of their country. That's unacceptable.
