Israel’s ties with Egypt might be on the line after Amos Gilad, head of the Defense Ministry’s Diplomatic-Security Bureau and a longstanding Israeli envoy to Cairo, said that President Hosni Mubarak is a figure more of the past than the future.

Gilad’s comments were revealed in a cable published on Sunday night by Wikileaks which recorded a meeting he and other top Israeli officials held with Under Secretary for Arms Control and International Security Ellen Tauscher in December, 2009.

Tauscher was in Israel for talks ahead of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference that US President Barack Obama was planning to hold in May.
