From YNet:
A Turkish daily affiliated with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called on the country's Jewish community to apologize for the Palestinian casualties of the Israeli operation in Gaza.

"You came here after being banished from Spain," Yeni Akit correspondent Faruk Köse wrote Wednesday in an open letter to Hakham Bashi, the chief rabbi of Turkey's Jewish community. "You have lived comfortably among us for 500 years and gotten rich at our expense. Is this your gratitude – killing Muslims? Erdogan, demand that the community leader apologize!"

Apparently, even after being citizens for 500 years, Jews in Turkey are still not considered Turkish.

A quick look at the newspaper, Yeni Akit, shows lots of naked Jew-hatred that doesn't even pretend to be only anti-Zionist. They openly support the Turkish singer's tweets last week saying "May God bless Hitler," they show a photo of Israeli "Na-Nachs" dancing and they caption it as if they are celebrating the killing of Arab civilians, they title an article about Israelis going into bomb shelters as "Jews have once again proven their cowardice," and they have openly accused the Jewish community in Turkey of "treachery."

The writer Faruk Kose has an article called "Is it permissible to kill Zionists?" that mentions Jews 21 times, including many accusations of a "Zionist/Jewish terrorist base."

No wonder Jews in Turkey are ready to flee for their lives:

Meanwhile, on the backdrop of the fighting in Gaza, Turkish initiatives to boycott Israeli goods and Jewish-owned businesses are gaining momentum on social networks like Facebook and Twitter.

Under the hashtag #zulmesessizkalamam ("I will not keep quiet in light of the persecution"), Turkey's residents are urged to boycott products such as Coca-Cola (as one of its owners, Warren Buffett, supports Israel by investing in companies like Iscar) and are provided with explanations on how to spot Israeli products in local supermarkets.

"I have never felt as threatened as I have in the past year," says Linet, a textile importer. "The government is inflaming the hatred and anti-Semitism and we are simply living in fear.

"Many of those who have not left yet – and the vast majority of Jews immigrated to Europe and Israel a long time ago – are weighing their options," she adds.
