A strategic alliance with Turkey was a goal of Israeli foreign policy since the days of David Ben Gurion. The common interest was danger from the Arab world, and nowadays also from Iran. The policy was successful, until now. Recently, Israel's Foreign Ministry took the extraordinarily stupid step of humiliating the Turkish ambassador (seating him on a "low" seat) for something minor. Now we see Turkey calling Israeli acts in Jerusalem "madness". So far, the Turkish government is refraining from breaking the special relationship with Israel due to their fear of the Turkish military. But the military is also full of Moslems and Turkish nationalists. They may end up getting disgusted with Israel too. Sounds like Netanyahu is going to leave behind him scorched earth.
