President Mahmoud Abbas, addressing a Palestine Liberation Organization meeting on Wednesday, urged “popular resistance” against Israel inspired by the Arab Spring to back a diplomatic offensive at the UN. “In this coming period, we want mass action, organized and coordinated in every place,” Abbas said. Abbas’ comments in Ramallah marked the first time he had openly urged popular activism in support of the UN initiative.
