Leaving the sabre rattling and who invented what for one moment, would Israel be able to finance a long drawn out war with Turkey?
If the government has to take men and women out of work and into the armed forces, not only does the economy suffer but the cost of fighting a war today is prohibitive regardless of what one produces.
Would all the people in Israel support a war against Turkey, especially as the Turks are unlikely to invade. Also aren't some Israeli's wanting peace with the Palestinians. Perhaps the Israeli government might not be able to take all its people along on this particular war. No one wants to fight an outside enemy and worry about the support of the people on the inside.

Notice the West Bank, which is controlled by the Palestinian Authority as opposed to Hamas, is NOT blockaded.
Example: Do you think it would be justifiable for the United States to bomb a building in Canada or Mexico, because they believe it is a threat to them?
"Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it." (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory).
"The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. "
"There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors."
"After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the "Protocols of the Elders of Zion", and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying."

Id like to know, how Israelis are going to get fresh water from now on. Its all about the water for them. If they had plans to get some from Turkey, they will not attack.

It'd be nice to stop playing these games. What are you asking me to comment on? Is it justified for Israel to attack Irans nuclear facilities?
Why do you care what i think?
If you are certain that the enemy is preparing to destroy you, then i think its justified. Irans leader - Ahmadinejad - said he wants the zionist entity wiped off the map. What does that suggest to you??
Also. Consider this. Jewish esoteric writings like the Zohar - a 2000 year old composition *at latest* - predicts that at the end of days Paras - Persia - Iran will attack Israel.
Even if you ignore this little prophetic tidbit, its still disconcerting that Ahmadinejad has taken such a deep interest in opposing Israel, the zionist entity, and even hosts conferences for holocaust denial.
The comparisons between him and Adoplh Hitler in the 1930s isnt very different at all. Hitler, albeit used less religious rhetoric than Muslims do. But the hate is the same, or perhaps has a potential to be even greater.
Eschatological writings seem to have a relevance to the times were living in. Jewish esoteric writings predict a certain situation that just happens to exist today. Islamic writings also predict a period at the end of days where the Muslims will destroy and finish off the heretic Jews
“So that Jews will hide behind trees and the tree will say “Muslim! The servant of Allah! Come, look there is a Jew behind me, he hid here, behind me, come and punish him”. Only the tree Gharqad will not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.”...
