Abbas to European Council: Support Palestinian Spring

Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority told the European Council in Strasbourg, Thursday, that countries should support what he called "The Palestinian Spring" the same way that they supported the "Arab Spring" in other countries.

Abu Mazen said, "The world, which welcomed the Arab Spring, faces a test today. Will this reception stop at Palestine or will the world succeed at getting over its double standard, and welcome the Palestinian Spring with open arms?"
