there is tension between Israel and Turkey, things can turn around any moment. Lots of nasty statements were made already.
If you want to save a few $ and hope that all stays safe, its a decision you need to make.
Some people value safety and would pay more to go via a friendly country.

Have a safe trip

It's like I always tell clients. AMM/IST have gotten a lot safer even since they banned rocket launchers in the airport

Definitely safer, but they still allow assault rifles
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

There is no danger in flying through Turkey. I recommend my clients to use Turkish as they often have low fares and their planes are new and comfortable. I have also flown through Turkey 4 times without incident. Their economy comfort product is also outstanding and affordable.
I have doe this as well.  Nicest lounge I've ever been to.

This has been discussed at length here:

IF you look jewish (yes they can tell), and you want to visit Istanbul, stick to the touristic attractions.

However I don't push anyone into it. I don't make decisions for clients. What I tell them is that we've only got positive feedback about experiences, although its a personal feeling and no one can make you comfortable with it except yourself.

If you do go, HSBC has a lounge in the airport. All you need to get in is to prove that you are a customer. I use to show my HSBC credit card and get in.
Airlines sending me "We're in this together" emails.

Bruh, where were you when my suitcase weighed it 51.50 pounds?

Shtus. Nobody cares about Jews nor can they tell.

Istanbul is much safer for a Jew than Paris or Oslo

To be honest I felt more uncomfortable in Heathrow's Terminal 4 than I did at IST.

Come on
I'm taking this as an insult ;)
But tbh how could you compare a country that is jews/isreal friendly to a country that hates isreal and is hostile to jewish people?

+1, Better to be in a friendly place with a few haters, than in a hating place with a few friendlies.
