Violence in the Mideast: At least six people killed in Israel and unrest in Syria persists

This morning, Israeli authorities said that at least six Israelis were killed and more than two dozen others were injured in southern Israel today when attackers fired shots at a bus, assaulted Israeli soldiers, and fired mortars and an anti-tank missile.

This report comes at the same time as the leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom join President Obama in calling for Syrian President Bashar al-Asad to step down as violence in the country persists.

Today on American Morning, Ambassador Marc Ginsberg, former Middle East presidential adviser and former Ambassador to Morocco, weighs in on the attacks in Israel and discusses if the international pressure on Syria will change Asad's course of action in the country.
