The Israeli parliament has called for an investigation into the reason behind the failure of Israeli Intelligence services in predicting the Egyptian uprising in advance.
Earlier, Israeli army Intelligence Chief Aviv Kochavi had claimed that Mubarak’s government would not be under any threat.
Tel Aviv is also concerned about the fate of Auda Solomon Trabin, one of its spies, who has been in prison in Egypt for the past eleven years.
Many prisoners have fled or been killed while attempting to escape amid the chaos across Egypt.
Reports suggest Israel is trying to convince its allies to support the embattled Egyptian ruler. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has issued a directive to its ambassadors to the US, China, Russia, Canada and several European countries rally support for Mubarak.
The diplomats have been told to emphasize the importance of Egypt’s stability to their host countries and ask them to curb criticism of President Mubarak.
In a separate development, 400 Israelis fled Cairo on board two planes early Monday. The group waited more than 16 hours at the airport before departing the country. The first group was evacuated from the capital on a special flight on Saturday.
Egypt has been engulfed in one of its worst political crises in decades.
Many countries around the world have advised their citizens to immediately evacuate or stay away from the North African nation.
Many people around the world have shown solidarity with Egyptians in their uprising against the Mubarak government.
