Greek far right party Golden Dawn has no plans on gaining international acceptance anytime soon, it seems.According to Helen Smith of the Guardian, party MP Ilias Panagiotaros recently told a rally in Athens:

If Chrysi Avgi [Golden Dawn] gets into parliament [as polls predict], it will carry out raids on hospitals and kindergartens and it will throw immigrants and their children out on the street so that Greeks can take their place.”

The comments came after reports that medical supplies and beds at hospitals are in short supply. Smith reports that the threat earned loud applause.

This weekend, Greece is preparing for their second general election this year. The last election in May saw Golden Dawn receive almost 7% of total votes.
