As Israel watches Hosni Mubarak, the Egyptian president, cling to power, its leaders have begun to weigh the consequences of a reality without Egypt as an ally.
Concern is growing within the Israeli government that the 30-year long peace agreement between the two nations may be jeopardised with the formation of a new government.
Will Israel become even further isolated? Can Israel establish new allies in the region? How will this affect the peace process?
On Tuesday, we discuss these issues with Gil Hoffman, the chief political correspondent and analyst for The Jerusalem Post; Rami Khouri, the editor-at-large of Beirut's The Daily Star; and Meir Javedanfar, an Iranian-Israeli Middle East analyst.
