Did Erdogan double cross Netanyahu?

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan may have double crossed Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, resulting in Israel being unprepared for the arrival of the terror flotilla led by the Mavi Marmara in May 2010.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan gave Israel the impression through third parties that he would keep the Mavi Marmara from setting sail in May 2010, the Prime Minister's Office was quoted as saying in the State Comptroller's report released Wednesday.

"The Prime Minister worked intensively through diplomatic channels, principally with the Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan, to stop the flotilla," the state comptroller's report quoted the PMO as saying. "The efforts led to a high feasibility that the Turkish flotilla would be prevented."

The PMO told the state comptroller that Erdogan, contrary to the impression he created, refrained from stopping the flotilla, and that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was only briefed about that a week before the flotilla set sail.
The State Comptroller's report was critical of Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman due to their handling of the flotilla. Read the whole thing. More here.

And why should an Israeli Prime MInister base his assessment of a possible threat on the alleged promises of a Muslim fundamentalist?
Only because he is an idiot who doesn't think like a Jew!
