Netanyahu puts his foot in it... by serving Japanese PM dessert in a SHOE - a huge insult in Japan - during visit to Israel

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie visited Israel last week
They dined with PM Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife at their official residence
Dessert was chocolate praline served on a napkin stuffed into a men's dress shoe
Shoes are disliked in Japan and not worn in homes, offices, or even in Parliament
Diplomats from both countries were appalled by the diplomatic faux pas.
