One of the Middle East's biggest problems is that neither the Palestinians, nor the Israelis fully understand each other, said outgoing UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's during the monthly United Nations Security Council meeting on Tuesday. Annan added that not only do the two sides not understand one another, but many of them also choose not to even try. "My term has come to an end without finding a solution to this sorrow. The [Middle East] is at a breaking point, and the situation is complicated, sensitive and dangerous," Annan concluded.
