The term “Middle East” is generally recognized today to refer to a region that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the west to Afghanistan in the east, a distance of approximately 5,600 kilometers.

It has a total population of around 300 million people and encompasses the countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Yemen, Iraq, Turkey, and Iran.

The African countries of Mauritania and Sudan are also considered to be within the “Middle East.”.

This usage of the term “Middle East” has increasingly come to supplant the more conventional usage, which divided the area into two regions, the Middle East and North Africa.

The term “North Africa” referred to the Arab countries of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya; “the Middle East,” on the other hand, referred to Egypt which is geographically located in North Africa as well as the rest of the Arab countries to the east plus Israel, Turkey, and Iran.

French scholars, in general, continue to refer to France’s former North African colonies of Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia by the Arabic term “Maghreb” and to Egypt and the rest of the Arab countries as the “Near East.”

The term “Maghreb” derives from the Arabic designation bilad al-Maghreb, meaning “the countries of the west” or, more literally, “the land where the sun sets.”

The term was traditionally used by Arabs to distinguish this part of the Arab world from the more eastern parts, which were referred to as bilad al-Mashreq, the “countries of the east” or “the land where the sun rises.”
