Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, center, leaves the United Nations Plaza Hotel, Friday, Nov. 30, 2012, in New York. Euphoric Palestinians erupted in cheers, honked car horns and chanted "God is great" after the United Nations endorsed an independent state of Palestine, giving sweeping international backing to their demands for sovereignty over lands Israel occupied in 1967.
