One must understand the diplomatic meaning of "New Era". Yes there is a new era in relations, which means that the "old era" is over - for good. This new era is based on a new assertiveness by Turkey which is a rising economic and political power on the world stage, with new priorities and alliances. Israel, on the other hand, is fast diminishing along with its protector, the USA.. Davutoglu is right. there is indeed a new era, based on a new balance of power.
