Fate - Do not have any Ferry info for you. Check the Turkish or Cyprus websites and check for Ferry schedules.

For Car/Bus Travel -
TLV to Beirut - It's doable, except don't believe borders is open to allow you to can cross at this point. If it was possible, it's about 3-hrs TLV to border, then about aother 3-hrs to Beirut. But you can cross from Jordan to Lebanon, probably also 6-hrs. plus any border control delays.

Antalya to Cairo - can't do without going via Istanbul (ANT/IST is 1-hr), where flight time IST/CAI is about 2-1/2-hrs.

Cairo to Amman - Flight time CAI/AMM is 1-1/4 hrs.

Amman to Jerusalem - via the Allenby bridge, while close by. About 30-min. or less to bridge on either side - but delays are due to border control.

Remember - getting in/out of Israel to/from Arab countries, if possible, are delayed by border controls - you've got to have correct paperwork (including your driver) or you'll not be allowed to enter, either direction and some crossing are closed at certain times.
