Golden Dawn has been in the headlines again this week. One of its MPs, Panayiotis Iliopoulos, was accused of shouting ‘Heil Hitler’ in Parliament.
Now it is being reported that the party has published a letter issuing a sinister ultimatum to Muslims.
In a letter sent via post to the Muslim Association of Greece yesterday, extremist-right party Golden [...]
