Turkish shop sign bans ‘Jew dogs’

A shop in central Istanbul has put up a sign forbidding entry to ‘Jew dogs’, according to the local Jewish publication, Salom.


The sign, which features an Israeli tank,  was first sighted three days ago. It says: “Jew dogs are not permitted entry.”

Ironically, the shop, which sells mobile phones and accessories, is in Tahtakale, an area with many Jewish businesses.

The sign is symptomatic of a dramatic rise in Turkish antisemitism and anti-Israel rhetoric.
