Nodding to unrest and regime change in Tunisia and Egypt, the Palestinian Authority dissolved its entire cabinet yesterday. We talk about the reshuffling of Palestinian leadership, as well as the growing pressure on neighboring Jordan's monarchy, with blogger and editor Ali Abunimah, who is in Amman, Jordan. Also, on Monday, thousands clashed with security forces in Tehran and cities throughout Iran. We’ll talk about the protests and the state of Iran's Green Movement with Asef Bayat, professor of Sociology and Middle East Studies at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
