    Mostly Asia, but also Africa (Egypt; sometimes Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco; and occasionally Sudan) and you could even make an argument that it has a toehold in Europe via Turkey. Turkey isn't normally considered part of the Middle East though.

    Mostly, the middle east is located in Western Asia, or Northeastern Africa depending on which countries you look at (e.g. Egypt). None of the middle east is located in Europe, although many middle eastern people consider themselves white.

    Neither; it's Southwest Asia. Of course, Turkey and Egypt both straddle two continents. So you may include the European portion of Turkey that's on the Balkan Peninsula and the portion of Egypt in northern Africa that's not the Sinai Peninsula.

    that is in Asia and Africa. Egypt is seen area of the middle East for particular, and from time to time the Maghreb countries of Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco (and to a much lesser quantity, Mauritania and Western Sahara) are seen the middle East to boot. Sudan is likewise from time to time lined contained in the middle East yet not extraordinarily frequently.
