Egypt under Israel's spotlight

Israel hopes its three-decade-old peace treaty with Egypt will survive any change.

    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.
