      The Middle East is a region, not a continent.  In a sense, it is the north-east corner of Africa, the southwestern tip of Asia, and the Arabian Peninsula.  All of the countries border either  the Red Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Persian Gulf, or the Gulf of Oman as it goes into the Arabian Sea. The countries share a hot, dry climate influenced, in part, by nearness to the sea.  All of them, except Israel, share the Islamic religion and similar cultures, though this does not keep them from conflict with each other.
