    I'd vote for Sicily if it was available.

    From around 900-1200 AD, it was considered North Africa, basically an extension of Tunisia.

    But some people would say Tunisia isn't even a ME nation.

    Frankly I think Turkey should not be on the list.

    Yup, you are right, you have expats from all around the world (South Asians, Filipinos, Europeans, Americans etc) but also many expats from different Arab countries (Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan, Saudis etc...) but believe me, Dubai is really something, it's the Ibiza of the Middle East, I would be really worried to know my husband would have to travel there frequently, it's a really unhealthy society (shallow people, alcoholics, nightclubs, sex centered, cheating, prostitution etc...). You need to choose your relatives carefully there!

    Yes, it was. I'm going back to Lebanon in 2 weeks, love this country! It's absolutely lovely. As a Turkish guy, you'd feel at home in Lebanon I think.

    Northern Tunisian+West Lebanese. No, Tunisia isn't a ME nation. And Turkey is surely a thing of it's own.

    I will just say Israel and Lebanon even though they are at daggers drawn with each other.

    Hahah no chance you cross the borders between Lebanon & Israel except if you want to be killed ;-)
    Id suggest to don’t have a stamp of Israel in your passport either (but I think they give a paper now and no stamp), you’d be expelled from Lebanon straightfully
    With Arab stamps on your passport to go to Israel will depend of your luck.
    I have a friend who has been to Israel twice with a French passport, he is ethnic European and Christian, he has been harassed by Israeli customs because he had a Turkish stamp (not even Arab) in his passport... it has been really complicated for him
