The intervention came as the situation in Egypt intensified, with thousands of protesters again on the streets of Cairo demanding President Hosni Mubarak‘s immediate departure.
In an interview with The Times en route to Jordan, Mr Hague said: “Amidst the opportunity for countries like Tunisia and Egypt, there is a legitimate fear that the Middle East peace process will lose further momentum and be put to one side, and will be a casualty of uncertainty in the region.”
He added: “Part of the fear is that uncertainty and change will complicate the process still further. That means there is a real urgency for the Israelis and the United States.
“Recent events mean this is an even more urgent priority and that’s a case we are putting to the Israeli Government and in Washington.”
“This should not be a time for belligerent language,” the Foreign Secretary said. “It’s a time to inject greater urgency into the Middle East peace process.”
Despite two weeks of steadfast pressure, Egyptian protesters have not achieved their goal of ousting Mr Mubarak.
Yesterday, thousands of civilians – including about 5,000 university professors and teachers – packed Cairo’s Tahrir Square to continue their demonstrations calling for the president’s removal.
In Alexandria, the country’s second largest city, 18,000 people crammed into the main square, while some 3,000 service workers for the Suez Canal also demonstrated in Suez city.
Around 8,000 people also chanted anti Mubarak slogans in the southern city of Assuit.
The beleaguered president has refused to step down, insisting on serving until elections in September.
His regime offered more concessions to the protesters in hopes of appeasing them while keeping as firm a grip on power as it possibly can.
Vice president Omar Suleiman,
who is managing the crisis, offered to set up committees to propose long-sought constitutional amendments and monitor the implementation of all proposed reforms. [of course this is The Independent’s view; the reality is as we see elsewhere, that this thug is a CIA/ Mossad favorite and does what he does to appease anyone but his people!]
Mr Mubarak also ordered a probe into last week’s clashes between the protesters and government supporters as well as mass detentions of human rights activists and journalists. [another lie and tactic…]

What does one expect from a government of thugs and terrorists?
Israel openly opposes democracy in ME
Deputy Premier Silvan Shalom said attempts at promotion of democracy in Egypt could strengthen what he called radical elements in the country, said Israeli website The Marker, a subdivision of the Ha’aretz newspaper.
The resistance movements, who owe their presence in the defense and political arenas to popular consensus, have invariably defended the Palestinians and Lebanese against deadly Israeli invasions.
“Think of what would happen if the radicals become dominant over Egypt and decide to close the Suez Canal,” he said.
The comments came amid popular revolution in Egypt against the country’s three-decade-long President Hosni Mubarak’s regime.
The uprising, which entered its 16th straight day on Wednesday, has been severely confronted by Egyptian security forces. More than 300 people have lost their lives since the popular movements began, reports say.
Israel has, however, supported Mubarak’s stay in power.
To prevent the revolution, Israel has also allowed Egypt to deploy troops to Sinai Peninsula despite a Tel Aviv-Cairo peace agreement, which has kept the peninsula demilitarized for decades.
US diplomatic cables, exposed by British newspaper The Telegraph on Monday, showed that Tel Aviv preferred Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman to succeed Mubarak.
Suleiman, who was appointed as VP on January 29, kept daily contact with Tel Aviv through a secret “hotline,” the cables said, and noted that he also had very good ties with Israeli figures.
How radical indeed.. yet Israel doesn’t think that “closing off Gaza” and creating the largest Auschwitz-like detention “camp” with over 1.5 million people, is radical?
The loss of human life is unimportant to the Israelis… their record of Nazism in Palestine is proof.
