hey, just discussing this with some people in the house, and we don't really see a problem with this category... ? What would be the alternative, in between Europe, Africa and Asia? Robino 23:31, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

The reason I think we should not use the categorization by this area is because it is painful to deal with it because of its unclearness which countries could be included - I wrote about that as best as I could here: (see map especially). Instead, we can either use general categories Asia and Africa (part of which territories is included in the definition of Middle East), or categorize by more clear areas such as Western Asia, Northern Africa and so on. For example, Israel classifies for Western Asia, Egypt for Northern Africa, etc. --Sigurdas 00:13, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
