The famine in North Korea, the currency crisis in Southeast Asia, and the forest fires in Indonesia unexpectedly vied for that honor.
It was the governments of these "miracle economies" of Southeast Asia, together with China, that produced the spurious "Asian values" claim, arguing that the welfare of the community through economic development had to take precedence over protection of individual rights, and that Asians valued efficiency over democracy.
Persecution of the Rohingya Muslim minority continued in Burma's Arakan (Rakhine) state, causing a new outflow of refugees to Bangladesh, and attacks by Buddhist monks on Muslims in the central Burmese city of Mandalay in March were widely believed to have been instigated by the government as a way of increasing popular support.

 1999 Positions of the Rainbow Party on the Yugoslavian Crisis
Aware of the fact that the ethnic minorities in the Balkans have been used in the past and will probably be used in the future as destabilizing factors, the Rainbow party has repeatedly proclaimed the inviolability of existing borders.
At the same time, in the matter of a minority's civic conduct, Rainbow has embraced the principle that this must be such as to reassure the entire population of the country that it does not aspire through the implementation of its rights to either immediately or gradually dissolve any borders.
The Balkan states and the minorities living in them must utilize the teachings of the European Union experience in their attempt to gradually unite their states, with respect for national-minority rights and the overcoming of national prejudices and rivalries.

 History of a Family from Asia Minor
I thought that the parts having to do with Asia Minor (where both of my parents were born) might be of wider interest so I have put them together as a separate story.
For a start, the army was pushing deep in the interior of Asia Minor thus not only stretching its supply lines but also going into territories with a hostile population since Greeks (or more precisely the Rom millet) were absent from many parts of the interior.
It is important to remember that the catastrophe of Asia Minor was the end result of events that started with the British desire to control the Iraqi oil fields.

As is often the case in natural disasters, the poor are suffering the most.
Asia’s current share of global GDP (about 38%) is still far from what it was in 1820, but both countries feel that they can — and must — participate in calling the global shots.
This is of vital importance, especially in light of the fact that Asia’s populations are still booming: India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh will see an increase in the next fifteen years from 1.4 billion to 1.73 billion inhabitants, while China’s population will grow from 1.3 billion to 1.42 billion.

 Venizelos and the Asia Minor Catastrophe
In 1919 Greek troops are sent by the victorious allies to the beautiful and multi-ethnic city of Smyrna in Asia Minor to 'protect' Greek citizens but in reality to serve as a buffer between the Italian army which is advancing up the southern Turkish coast and the British who are in Constantinople, (Istanbul).
The disaster of Smyrna meant the end of the three thousand year Hellenic presence in Asia Minor.
In August of 1936 after a deadlocked election where the communists held the balance of power, using strikes and unrest as the excuse, former general Ioannis Metaxas, with the backing of the King, overthrows the government.

He marries Marianthe, a woman of the Anatolian middle class whose family, as a result of the Asia Minor Disaster of 1922, has lost its wealth and left her without a dowry.
The Greek army is defeated, and Marianthe´s family, along with a million and a half Greeks living in Asia Minor since ancient times, is uprooted, their property lost, a brother killed.
The fact that she is now without a dowry means that she can marry Costa, whom she had grown to respect and love and who, because of his fathers lack of foresight, has no property in the village.

The Turks reoccupied Asia Minor and entered Smyrna/Izmir on 9 September 1922.
The exceptions to the population exchange were Istanbul and the island of Imbros and Tenedos, where the Greek minority (including the Ecumenical Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church) was allowed to stay, and the eastern part of Greek Thrace, whose Turkish/Muslim minority was also allowed to stay.
Once again the Greek minority in Turkey suffered from the crisis, many Greeks fled the country, and there were even threats to expel the Ecumenical Patriarch.

In the Metropolis of Asia MinorSmyrna, the queen of Ionian cities, the curtain of the Asia Minor tragedy fell at its waterfront, in an orgy of rape, slaughter, and violence, in the massive arson that the Turks started in order to extinguish every trace of Greek culture and presence in the City.
One year after the Asia Minor catastrophe in 1922, a refugees' settlement was founded, a new city, with the name of New Ionia, in order to accommodate part of the Asia Minor refugees, who were scattered in tobacco warehouses, schools, old buildings, temporary tents, and other types of lodgings.
A varied crowd, mainly from Asia Minor, with women and children gathered in the place that had been fixed to put the foundation stone of the first house.

 2001 Greece's Dangerous Balkan Games
Specifically, we now fully understand the particular sense that can be attributed to the phrase "creation of a cordon sanitaire for the protection of refugees to a depth of 10-20 km within the territory of the Republic of Macedonia under the aegis of the United Nations and the control of Greece".
What Mitsotakis and Milosevic said about "sharing out the cake" has proved to be the official policy of the Greek government over the past ten years, since the name issue has served as a pretext for attempts to destabilise the country as a prelude to dissolution and in the expectation of territorial gain.
RAINBOW as a political body representing the ethnic Macedonian minority in Greece believes that, in the absence of policies designed to avert war, the general declaration found on the lips of politicians, that "the peoples have no bones to pick that would lead them to war", is in fact politically fraudulent.

Gradually, a new musical style was created and Asia Minor songs were adapted to the island measures and became part of the various traditional rituals (weddings, saints' feasts, etc.).
Another factor determined by the Asia Minor influence was the gradual emergence of the violin as a major instrument at the expense of the traditional Dodecanese lyre.

 Honda Civic Minor Revision (ASIA Region)
For the asian region outside of Japan, Honda Asia which is headquartered in Thailand with a Research & Development center in Ayyuthia quietly launched the mid-life revision for Asian countries outside of Japan at the end of last year.
It has undergone a minor face-lift (which in my opinion is quite over-due), changes to the interior, and most importantly some much overdued mechanical updates; all in all the addition of 20 new features and the use of 260 new parts.
Remember, while the asia region outside of Japan is controlled by Honda Asia from out of the Thailand-based headquarters, individual countries have the authority to decide the specifications of the Civic they launch for their domestic market - within some broad constraints imposed by Honda Asia HQ of course.

PAOK went from being the sports club of the Asia Minor refugees to becoming Makedonia’s, and the whole of northern Greece’s, team.
PAOK immediately became the club that the thousands of Asia Minor refugees in northern Greece considered their own.
There was intense conflict with indigenous Greeks, and the epithets the latter used against the refugees included “tourkosporoi” (of Turkish seed) and “yaourtovaftismenoi” (baptized in yogurt, a reference to an important ingredient of Asia Minor cuisine.) The conflict was preserved by the emergence of separate, ghetto-like refugee neighborhoods ringed around Thessaloniki’s center.

The invocation of the principle of reciprocity, with regard to the cases of minorities, consists a violation of the minority rights, which under the international law is an action contrary to the principles of the United Nations Charter and the European Convention on Human Rights.
I honor all the societies of Greeks from Asia Minor, which with their action are the living conscience of the Greek nation and remind the Hellenic Government each time what it must do to protect their rights, which have been established and never granted, as these are set forth in the international treaties.

Ever since it opened its doors to receive the first visitor in 1874, the Grande Bretagne has been a point of reference in the social, political and economic life of Athens and, by extension, of the whole of Greece.

But then, we should take care of tenths of minorities from Asia and Africa since their numbers are much higher to the so-called "minorities" appearing under discussion in the programme.
The conference is aiming in "linguistic minorities" which represent populations that in the past have been in denial of the Hellenic supremacy and /or possession of certain lands, possession that according to them are occupations.
So yes, I believe minorities and the granting of special rights within an existing political commonwealth to any 'minority' group is threatening to the general populace at large, and ought to be discouraged in the strongest possible terms.
