[Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA: It should be noted that there are several major
stories in progress in the region that have nothing to do with either Israel
or the Palestinians. Besides the ongoing revolt/slaughter in Syria, the
Jordanian monarchy is struggling to come up with a formula that keeps the
king in power while at the same time addressing the difficult challenge of
reducing the budget busting subsidies. Egypt also has many huge problems -
both economic and political. And that's only some of the countries in the
neighborhood with problems that threaten to bring them to a boil.]
Renewed clashes break out near Interior Ministry

Clashes resumed Wednesday morning between protesters and police forces near
the Interior Ministry in downtown Cairo, with the two sides exchanging
volleys of rocks and tear gas.
Dozens of protesters moved to Qasr al-Aini Street to escape tear gas
canisters. Security forces intensified their presence near the Cabinet and
Parliament buildings nearby to ward off potential attacks from Constituent
Assembly members convening at the Shura Council.
A source at Al-Jazeera Mubasher Misr said that a blaze at its Tahrir Square
studio was under control after a Molotov cocktail attack, but added that the
whole office was charred.
