This article focuses on Turkish-Israeli relations, placing them in a historical context. Turkey was the first Muslim country to recognize the Jewish state in 1949; following this, Turkey balanced its relations between Israel and the Arab states. In the post-1990s,Turkish-Israeli relations became warmer, once Israel and the Palestinians started to work towards a comprehensive peace agreement. However, following the Second Intifada, these relations became strained and during the last four years, have hit a all time low. Following the recent Israeli elections, the time has come for Israel to fix relations with Turkey, which is also important in order to face the challenges of the Arab Spring.
