UNITED NATIONS - Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas urged Israelis to "come to peace" on Friday after he submitted a formal request for the United Nations to recognize Palestinian statehood.

"I say to the Israelis, come to peace," Abbas said in a speech to the UN General Assembly.

Abbas said the Palestinians would continue peaceful, popular resistance to Israeli occupation and warned that Jewish settlement construction threatens both to destroy the two-state solution and the survival of his fledgling government, the Palestinian Authority.
