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.
Jordan is a country in the Middle East almost completely landlocked. Jordan is bordered by Israel and the West Bank to the west, by Syria to the north, by Iraq to the east and by Saudi Arabia to the south.
Levant is an imprecisely defined region in the Middle East south of the Taurus Mountains, bounded by the Mediterranean Sea on the west, and by the northern Arabian Desert and Upper Mesopotamia to the east.
