Until the recent war, I always thought southwestern Asia was the only part considered to be the middle east.

You mean like Egypt? ...yeah.

No way. The Middle East is like Israel, Palestine, Iraq, Iran, and Suadia Arabia. Middle East:

I think of Egypt as being part of the middle east

Egypt is on the continent of Africa. In terms of geopolitics and religion affiliation, it's a Middle Eastern country.

As was mentioned, Egypt came to my mind first.

Egypt is more north east,so no

No, except for Egypt.
16 yrs ago, 8 mos ago - Friday 9/26/03 - 7:30:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I also think of Egypt as being more middle eastern, although I know it's african.

The reason that many regard North African countries as part of the middle east is because of their predominantly Arab population. When we think Africa, we tend to think Black. North Africa isn't really Black, especially Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco.

Well The Middle East isn't a continent. So Egypt is technically on the continent of Africa but can be affiliated with The Middle East in terms of what RaisinBran just said.

I don't really pay attention to it.
