by Dr. Theodoros Tsakiris *

The tectonic changes that have been shaping the Near East since the beginning of the Arab Spring in early 2011 have over shadowed the significance of the disintegration in Turkish-Israeli relations in the shaping of the new balance of power in the region and beyond it. The fall of the Mubarak and Qaddafi regimes and the continued civil war in Syria are reshaping the modern Middle East in ways which are apparently more important than the falling-out between the region’s two most important U.S. allies. Within so volatile and unstable an environment, where geopolitical alignments seem to shift faster than the desert’s sands, one could discard the importance of the Turkish-Israeli “divorce” as a temporary phenomenon.
