Middle East 

The Middle East is a region in western Asia and north-eastern Africa. The term "Middle East" was created by British military strategists in the 19th century, and definitions of it vary; it is not simply a geographical term, but also a Eurocentric political one, connoting that it separates Europe from the Far East.
