Main target of hate speech in Turkey is... you guessed it... the Jews

I suppose that none of you will be surprised to hear that the biggest target of hate speech in Turkey is... the Jews.
The Hrant Dink Foundation, a Turkish organization that seeks to promote cultural diversity, democratization, equal opportunities, cross-cultural relations, and a world free of racism for all of the peoples of Turkey, has found in a report written by its periodic Media and Hate Speech Watch that Jews are the number one target of hate speech in the Turkish media, followed by Armenians, Christians and Greeks. The Hrant Dink Foundation reached this conclusion after surveying 16 Turkish newspapers between September and December 2012. The report asserted that there were 39 instances of hate speech targeting the Jewish people accounting for 25 percent of hateful articles during that time. Yeni Akit, Milli Gazete and Yeni Mesaj featured the most hate speech content out of all of the Turkish dailies, while in the local media, Istanbul, Gölcük Postası, and Yozgat Hakimiyet used hate speech the most.
I would not have expected it to be otherwise.
