Sephardic Jews Leaving Turkey and going to ... Spain???

Here are a couple of headlines I never thought I'd see.

Talk about role-reversal - 523 years later!

New York Times:
Sephardic Jews Feel Bigotry’s Sting in Turkey and a Pull Back to Spain

Breitbart:
SEPHARDIC JEWS LEAVE TURKEY FOR SPAIN FLEEING ‘UNNERVING’ WAVE OF ANTI-SEMITISM

Of course, if they move anywhere, it should be to Israel.

This reminds me of the verse:
וּבַגּוֹיִ֤ם הָהֵם֙ לֹ֣א תַרְגִּ֔יעַ וְלֹא־יִהְיֶ֥ה מָנ֖וֹחַ לְכַף־רַגְלֶ֑ךָ
And among these nations shalt thou have no repose, and there shall be no rest for the sole of thy foot

May Hashem gather in all the exiles speedily in our days, Amen.

Either comment or don't comment, but don't say "no comment".

Perhaps, you were trying to say that the Jews of Turkey are really going to Israel, but don't want to arouse the ire of Erdogan and company so they're saying that they're going to Spain. Possible.
