One fails to recognize that it wasn't Erdogan who initially back stabbed Israel but in fact it was that alpha male Night club bouncer who happens to be an MK who back stabbed Turkey and Israel. As soon as Erdogan was elected to power his first action was to invite the Israeli President to Turkey to address the Turkish Grand National Assembly. A first in the world. What did the Nighclub bouncer turned MK do in return? Firstly, he made the Turkish PM wait 3 hours in his limo when Erdogan reciprocated the visit to Israel. As if this wasn't enough he then decided to seat the Turkish Ambassador on a very low chair in full public view and abuse him in Hebrew live on National TV. Well this is hardly how you treat the Ambassador of the Turkish Republic. There would be a price to pay. I can assure you Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would not even be treated like that by Israel.
