Netanyahu is paid not just to "react" to events but to prepare for them. Turkey's change didn't come in a day - its movements have been clear for 10 years. Hosni didn't magically disappear. That his regime will not survive his death (political or otherwise) has been clear for 10 years. Israel chose (and continues to choose) its influence in US congress as an intimidation tool, rather than to follow long term policies with her neighbors. Not because it is smart, but because it is easier. Or, at least, used to be easier.
