Israel’s officials may be keeping their opinions close to their chests about Egypt’s unrest, but its media is not.

While some newspapers are talking about a so-called new Middle East, others highlight the government support for President Hosni Mubarak’s regime.

For Israel, maintaining the status quo of its largest neighbour is a key strategic interest. It means the continuation of 30-year-old peace agreement.
