Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's what the story quoted in the diary above also says.  I think there is extraordinary symbolism in the fact that Obama spoke to Abbas before all other world leaders - he's not even a head of state or Government.  Has Obama even spoken to Brown/Sarkozy/Merkel yet?
