A member of the Greek parliament from the far right party Golden Dawn has urged desperate people in the country to “kill those who are responsible for their problems” rather than commit suicide. He defines “those who are responsible” as bankers.
Ilias Panagiotaros made the comments during an interview for the Dateline show broadcast by Australian network SBC.
“Golden Dawn aspires to become like Hezbollah as a second government for the benefit of Greek citizens,” he added.
Despite Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s insistence that “these types of policies have no place in Australia”, Panagiotaros insisted that members of the Golden Dawn will visit the country.

Golden Dawn has been severely criticised for using force against political opponents and minority groups such as immigrants in recent months.
On June 7, 2012, during a morning show on Greek TV station Antenna, Golden Dawn’s Ilias Kasidiaris physically slapped a memver of the Communist Party – Liana Kanelli.

On September 7, 2012, Golden Dawn’s members attacked itinerant immigrant traders during a fair in Rafina, Attica.
