Neo-Nazi Golden Dawn's MP, Elias Panagiotaros, says on TV that a leading player of Greece's national basketball team, Sofoklis Schortsianitis, is not Greek because he doesn't belong to the European race, since his mother comes from Cameroon. 

The dialogue between the journalist (J) and Elias Panagiotaros (E.P) goes as follows:

J: If a 'colored' Greek asked to become a member of your party, would you accept them or not?
Ε. P: What do you mean when you say 'colored' ? Suntanned?
J: I am referring to a black person. An Orthodox Christian, who is a Greek citizen with a Greek identification card. Schortsianitis.
Ε. P: We don’t think that Schortsanitis is Greek, according to the ideals of the Greek race. He is not Greek. Both of his parents should be Greek and belong to the European race. This is our belief. If you think Schortsianitis is Greek, take him to your party.
J: Are you racists or do you just fight illegal immigrants?
Ε. P: Believing that races are distinct is not a bad thing.
J: Forgive me, but this is the doctrine of the Aryan race.
Ε. P: For God’s sake. What do you want us to be? We shouldn’t confuse pekingese dogs with labradors. God made them like this and they should remain as they are. Being black, yellow or red is their honor but we don’t regard them as Greeks. They are not Greeks.
J: What exactly are you after? The illegal ones or every immigrant?
Ε. P: We are not after anyone. We defend Greeks. And, basically, only illegal immigrants exist in Greece. There are no legal immigrants in Greece. It is a big lie.
