"Moreover, you scorned our people, and compared the Albanese to sheep, and according to your custom think of us with insults. Nor have you shown yourself to have any knowledge of my race. Our elders were Epirotes, where this Pirro came from, whose force could scarcely support the Romans. This Pirro, who Taranto and many other places of Italy held back with armies. I do not have to speak for the Epiroti. They are very much stronger men than your Tarantini, a species of wet men who are born only to fish. If you want to say that Albania is part of Macedonia I would concede that a lot more of our ancestors were nobles who went as far as India under Alexander the Great and defeated all those peoples with incredible difficulty. From those men come these who you called sheep. But the nature of things is not changed. Why do your men run away in the faces of sheep?"
Letter from Skanderbeg to the Prince of Taranto ▬ Skanderbeg, October 31 1460

German Nobel laureate’s Israel-Iran policy poem causes storm


Nobel prize-winning German author Gunther Grass has drawn anger for a poem criticising Israel’s policies against Iran, which it accuses of being a danger to world peace.

The poem, called ‘What Must Be Said’ was published in German paper Suddeutsche Zeitung, and has provoked anger from Germans who believe it is Iran’s policies that pose the risk.

The Israeli Embassy in Berlin has written its own version of ‘What Must Be Said’, highlighting what it says is a tradition of anti-semitism before the Jewish Passover holiday.

Jam fisnike e kam zemren gure,
si Shqiponja ne flamure.
Mburrem dhe jam krenare,
qe kam lindur Shqiptare.
Nga do qe te jem me ndjek fati,
se jam Shqiptare, shkurt hesapi !!
