University study finds 52% of Turks would not have Christians as neighbors and 64% would not have Jews.
An Istanbul University study suggests Turks have low tolerance for diverse lifestyles as three in four respondents said they would not want to live next to an atheist or anyone drinking alcohol. The study by Istanbul’s Bahcesehir University is meant to gauge radicalism and extremism in Turkey. Results published in Sunday’s Milliyet newspaper indicate 64% of Turks would not want Jewish neighbors, 52% would not Christian neighbors, 67% would not want to live next to an unmarried couple and 43% would not want American neighbors.
