A rare snowstorm blanketed parts of Israel, the West Bank, Jordan and Cyprus on Wednesday, catching many by surprise just two days after sandstorms had covered towns and villages in a fine yellow dust. In Israel, schools were closed, public transportation was paralyzed, and roads were blocked by trees downed by the storm, which deposited 4 inches of snow on Jerusalem. Eight inches fell on the upper Galilee in northern Israel, and 16 inches fell on Mt. Hermon in the Golan Heights.

Protesters broke through a security wall and stormed the Israeli Embassy in Cairo late Friday, throwing documents out windows and sharpening the tensions that have been growing between the two countries since the overthrow of former President Hosni Mubarak. Hundreds of demonstrators marched toward the embassy, battered the wall and pulled down barricades recently set up to protect the high-rise. Police did not intervene until shortly before midnight, hours after young men set fire to the embassy's Israeli flag along the Nile.

Heavy snow isolated Jerusalem on Wednesday and covered the neighboring kingdom of Jordan as unusually heavy storms battered the eastern Mediterranean region. The snowstorm blanketed Jerusalem and reached as far south as Israel's Negev Desert. Police went on national TV to explain how to drive in snow--an unfamiliar experience for most Israelis. Children in Dimona threw snowballs for the first time in their lives. The Negev town reportedly last saw snow 18 years ago.

There has been a strange quiet in the Middle East for the past few months. As Israelis go at each other during an acrimonious election campaign, the Palestinians have been sitting on the sidelines, doing what they can to help the Labor Party leader, Ehud Barak, win election. Yasser Arafat has made it clear that Barak is his candidate of choice for prime minister. How has he done that? By stopping acts of terrorism.

A blizzard swept this desert kingdom Tuesday, blocking roads with more than a foot of snow and causing scores of traffic accidents. The Amman airport was closed because of blocked runways, and schools were shut down. The storm left up to 15 inches of snow in Amman, where police reported 121 traffic accidents. Dozens of power failures were reported in the city. In neighboring Israel, at least 6 inches of snow blanketed Jerusalem--the second snowfall of the winter in the Holy City.
