Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas referred to the last three months of violence Monday as a "justified popular uprising".Abbas' comments came as a new poll shows widespread Palestinian support for ongoing attacks on Israelis. Israeli leaders have accused Abbas and other Palestinian leaders of inciting the violence with incendiary rhetoric. Abbas has previously refrained from either endorsing or condemning the attacks, often referring to the wave of violence as understandable but not in the best interests of the Palestinian people.Although Palestinians agree with the message issued by Abbas, support for the aging leader is dwindling. The poll found that 65 percent of Palestinians believe Abbas should resign.
