Speaking on condition of anonymity, the two officials said Netanyahu had told all government spokesmen not to comment on the situation in Egypt.
The security officials said they are worried that a regime change could
threaten Israeli-Egyptian relations and that violence could spread to
the Palestinian Authority.
Egypt was the first Arab country to reach peace with Israel three decades ago and is one an important ally.
Egyptians have taken to the streets en masse calling on President Hosni Mubarak
to resign after nearly 30 years in power.
