    Thanks Mark – I’ve replaced the original map with the above map, that includes Turkey in light blue… I definitely consider Turkey part of MENA!

  3. Morocco needs to include western Sahara Please do

  4. Sudan needs to be blue also

  5. Pray4MENA

     /  April 8, 2014

    We used a map from Wikipedia that shows areas that are widely considered MENA in dark blue, and areas that are considered MENA by some in light blue. There have been ongoing edits and discussions about Western Sahara on Wikipedia, but we don’t have an official opinion about it. We consider both the dark and light blue areas to be MENA.
