US pressing Egypt on Israel

"The United States on Wednesday sought to press its wary allies in Egypt's army leadership to bolster ties with Israel and stick to scheduled elections later this year, even though a new set of leaders much less friendly to the US and the Jewish state may be the winners."  Does anyone really believe that the US would bother to press the Egyptian rulers on anything other than Israel?   Pressing them on elections?  Is that what they have been doing with Sadat-Mubarak since 1978?
