Fearful Turkish Jews Keep a Low Profile

FSWC Reports:

From ynetnews.com:

ISTANBUL – As visitors heave open the thick, vault-like metal door to the Neve Shalom Synagogue on a discreet side street in the Galata neighborhood of European Istanbul, a skittish guard confronts them.

Guests are shuttled through secure, windowless rooms to an X-ray machine and metal detector. Pockets are emptied and passports surrendered. The guard questions the reason for the visit and the guests' ethnicity. He then determines whether they can be allowed through.
