Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said that the time has come for Palestinians to end "63 years of the Nakba (catastrophe)" and suffering.

Abbas said that it was time for the "Palestinian Spring," as he called in, in reference to the so-called Arab Spring protests that spread this last year throughout the Middle East.

"My people desire the right to enjoy a regular life, like the rest of humanity," Abbas said.
