As Egypt changes, the country's relationship with Israel becomes fragile. With President Hosni Mubarak pledging not to seek re-election in September, Israeli leaders are worried Egypt could fall into the hands of radical Islamic groups. This includes a fear that the Muslim Brotherhood may emerge as the leadership in the country.

For reactions from Israel, we hear from Barak Ravid, diplomatic correspondent for Haaretz  newspaper, and Ethan Bronner, Jerusalem bureau chief for The New York Times.
