Palestinian UN representative shakes his head in disgust as Obama suggests Israeli and Palestinians should walk in each other's shoes

During his address to the UN General Assembly today, Barack Hussein Obama said that it’s important for both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian stalemate to learn to stand in their opponent’s shoes. This, he says, will help both parties better understand where the opposition is coming from.

After he makes this statement, the camera cuts to the Palestinian representative shaking his head (as if to say, “What a maroon!”)

Head shake begins around 1:50
