During this period Turkey has boosted its support for the Palestinians and tensions between Ankara and Tel Aviv have remain unchanged since Mavi Marmara incident in May 2010. In this article the state of Turkish-Israeli relations will be discussed in the light of the most recent developments in regional dynamics of the Middle East. Here the outcome of Arab movements and Turkey's strategic decision to support Palestinian cause are discussed as the major determinants of the future of Israeli - Turkish relations. It is argued that Turkey needs to consider a fine balance between Arab public opinion and strategic calculations in the regional affairs
