Israel has urged the US to back the Egyptian military, saying losing Egypt to Islamists could risk the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

According to an Israeli official quoted by the paper, Egypt and Saudi Arabia have traditionally played an important role in providing the Palestinians the support to stay in the negotiations and to make concessions, and without them there is a chance the talks will fail.
