So in the news today, other than Egypt:
- King Abdullah of Jordan disbanded his government and appointed a former General as his new prime minister.
- On the West Bank, they are rushing to hold municipal elections, the first since 2006.
- Syrians are trying to organize mass demonstrations for Saturday. One of my Syrian employees was trying to reach her family in Damascus most of the day yesterday and the phone lines were down. You decide why that was the case. She finally got through yesterday evening. Her family had been trying to contact her from their end as well with no success.
- And there were protest in Lebanon last week when a Hezbollah candidate was selected as Prime Minister.
