British Prime Minister Tony Blair on Monday praised Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' call for new Palestinian elections and said the next few weeks would be a critical time for the Middle East. Blair, who was speaking at a news conference with Abbas in Ramallah, also called on the international community to support Abbas. "Your people are suffering," he told Abbas. "We don't want anything to stand in the way of helping the Palestinian people." Blair added that he would do what he can in coming weeks to deliver support to Abbas and the Palestinians. "I will not rest for a single moment," he said.
