The situation throughout the Middle East continues to escalate.  

In Syria, twin suicide car bombs ripped through a suburb of Damascus today killing at least 34 people. In Egypt, two of the highest appeals court suspended their work today in protest of President Mohammed Morsi's power grab. 

Meanwhile, in New York, the UN General Assembly is expected to vote tomorrow to approve the Palestinian bid for non-member status.

Here with analysis on the latest in Middle East affairs is Ambassador Dennis Ross. He served as the Middle East envoy under President Clinton and is currently a counselor with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.
