Since the beginning of 2009, the quality of the Turkish-Israeli relation has rapidly deteriorated to reach a point that could be described as a state of cold peace. The duo of former allies, who had built a set of comprehensive political, economic and strategic links over time, presently portray almost overtly each other as enemies. Both government, although they periodically engage in behind the curtain informal dialogue to limit the damage, seem at the same time to exploit the bilateral tension on their domestic scene for electoral purposes.
