    Nope, I'm asking a general question on what people believe and what they know. If you don't like it, you don't have to participate.

    Thank you Pete, as always you're willing to answer questions directly.

    Egypt in the west, Turkey in the north, Iran in the east, Yemen in the south.

    Afghanistan and Pakistan are usually added for holding similarities to many Mideastern countries.

    Re: Which of these countries is in the Middle East?

    Well just curious whether or not being in Africa precludes it's inclusion in the middle east in your mind. You said Afghanistan is close but not quite, and I'd agree with that.

    Somalia would be the toughest to say, but no it's not either.

    What do you think makes up the border of the "Middle East"?

    Middle East was a term originally used to describe the area between India (including Pakistan) and the Mediterranean, including Turkey and the Arabian Peninsula. Afghanistan could be included, but it generally isn't.

    Egypt isn't in Asia. Turkey and Cyprus would certainly dispute that as well as Cyprus is part of the European Union and Turkey wants to become part of the European Union.

    I would say it is the countries with a Semitic background (which the Afghans don't have) and going maybe as far as Iran. Once you get into Afghanistan, there is a lot influence from non-persians, non-Arabs and as such I don't consider them to be part of the Middle East. Then again, I'm not alone in this frame of mind.

    I smell a bait thread.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
