Abbas: The "Palestinian Spring" has begun

In a triumphant return to West Bank Sunday, Mahmoud Abbas declared that the “Palestinian Spring” had been born.

The Palestinian president received a hero’s welcome following his historic speech to the U.N. last week…

The speech has transformed Abbas, who widely been viewed as a bland bureaucrat, into a hero.

The 76-year-old leader repeatedly shook and waved his hands to the crowd during his brief speech Sunday.
