The 71st United Nations General Assembly kicked off this week, as leaders from 193 countries came together in New York to discuss where the world stands.
World leaders discussed various issues, including women's rights, the Syrian conflict and the ongoing Palestinian crisis.
"Surely Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel ... (and if) Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land," Obama said.
Here are some takeaways from Arab leaders at the #UNGA:
1. Jordan's King Abdullah clearly pointed out what Islam is not about
2. And he spoke in the name of Palestine
3. Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef spoke out against terrorism
