MPs of the Belgian racist party Vlaams Belang celebrate Adolf Hitler’s birthday in parliament, but not during public sessions. Their Greek Golden Dawn co-thinkers are a bit more open about it …
Dawn of the Greeks blog writes about it:
May 17, 2013
There were angry scenes in parliament on Friday when a deputy speaker moved to expel a Golden Dawn MP from the house for calling other members “goats”, a “gang”, and “sell-outs”. The outburst prompted deputy speaker Yiannis Dragasakis (Syriza) to propose a motion of censure against the MP, Panayiotis Iliopoulos, and to ask house officials to remove him from the chamber.
But Iliopoulos’ Golden Dawn colleagues pre-empted his expulsion by walking out on the proceedings. It would have been the first time that a Golden Dawn MP was physically ejected from the chamber. According to reports, the head of Golden Dawn’s parliamentary group, Christos Pappas, shouted “Heil Hitler” three times as he left the chamber. The incident occurred during a discussion on the hate speech bill which is expected to be tabled in parliament in the coming days.

The Muslim Association of Greece says they received a threatening note giving all Muslims one month to leave the country or be ‘slaughtered like chickens’. The letter, as it appeared on the association’s webpage, has the Golden Dawn emblem printed on it: here.
