More than 100 people of all ages gathered Friday to watch the speech of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at the UN General Assembly on a screen set up outside of Damascus Gate, cheering and chanting and yelling at the screen.

"We feel good that Abu Mazen is saying this, we've been waiting for what he's going to say for 60 years," said Ibrahim, a Jerusalem resident.
