Mubarak is just trying to get some browny points with his people while this issue is still hot. In a wek, the border will close again. The Egyptian govt despises Hamas, together with the Muslim Brotherhood. The relationship between Israel and Egyptian Govt ( not people) is fundamentally strong, as they share multiple interests right now, including suppressing Hamas. The Turkish -Israeli relationship was eroding ever since the islamists came to power. They were praying for an event like this one to give them an excuse to break off ties. They'll feel the pain in the pocketbook though- tourism from israel will plummet and the military hardware that israel provides will have to come from eleswhere Israel can afford to lose Turkey - Israel's GDP is strong and its people are innovative. GDP per capita is 4X that of Turkey, Literacy in turkey is dismal compared to Israel.,corruption is endemic according to transparency international and much worse than Israel ( just imagine how bad that is!) In short, Turkey isnt the success story that Israel is. Israel is much better looking towards India as a long term strategic partner and military ally.
