1. Exporters Worry...
Bruria   (09.05.11)
Don't worry, stop all tourism from Israel to Turkey. Already they have been complaining about loss of money. All Jews (everywhere) should simply avoid Turkey...actually, anyone of good conscience should stay clear as well.
2. Why does Israel continue to maintain those systems?
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, DC USA   (09.05.11)
It shouldn't be that Turkey maintains only those military agreements that benefit it, especially when Israeli systems are used in ways Israel would not approve. I say pull them out. For once, Israel should be proactive, not reactive. And if Turkey puts stumbling blocks in the way of civilian trade (as in their interrogation of Israeli businessmen arriving in Turkey today), Israeli customers can check the country of origin of stuff they're buying. A lot of appliances bought by Israelis, for example, are made in Turkey.
3. It is a two-way street
Menachem ,   Israel   (09.05.11)
Israel may lose an important customer as a result of Turkish aggression but Turkey will lose one of its main technology suppliers so I would worry much more if I was a Turk.
4. Nothing to do
Israel Israeli ,   Tel Aviv   (09.05.11)
Erdogan has decided to end the relationship with Israel. Maybe it is to establish himself as the leader of the Muslim world, maybe to cosy up with Iran. Grow-up: there is nothing Israel can do.
5. Dont let the Moguls sell our Soul for gold
SellingOurSouls ,   Jerusalem Israel   (09.05.11)
Yes a couple of hundred people may lose their jobs but the real deal is the worry of those business owners who are ready and willing to sell our souls our national pride for their own personal greed. It has ever been so throughout history it was Jewish business leaders that were the greatest support of the Roman Occupation 2000 years ago.
6. exporters fear
J.K. ,   Brooklyn USA   (09.05.11)
How about Turkish exporters to Israel ?.Turkey exports more to Israel than the other way.
7. Dignity has no price,money is not everything...
Anna M Sedda ,   Rome-Italy   (09.05.11)
..there always be idiots that will cry that "they will no make anymore money... Money don t buy dignity and love and respect .... Stop crying like a little baby that you will not make money...there are plenty of friendly nations to make many,you crap
8. no matter just sell to greece. they will love
ghostq   (09.06.11)

9. Cry me a river...
Kodosmama ,   Jordan Valley   (09.06.11)
"Turkey is Israel's sixth leading export destination, with the chemicals and oil distillates industry making up more than half of Israeli exports to the country..." This would be the products the Ofer brothers most likely produce? Sorry, but I don't give a crap about them.
10. greece
sercan ,   istanbul   (09.06.11)
