West Asia

West Asia is growing in popularity as a neutral, non-Eurocentric synonym for the Middle East. It generally includes the Arabian Peninsula, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestinian territories, Syria, and Turkey, though it may be stretched to include Afghanistan and Pakistan, and even Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, and Cyprus.
