The Eastern Mediterranean
The Eastern Mediterranean is the region around the eastern flank of the Mediterranean Seamarker, from Greecemarker, clockwise to Egyptmarker, including Turkeymarker, Cyprusmarker, Syriamarker, Lebanonmarker, Palestine, Israelmarker, Jordanmarker, and Iraqmarker.

The region is the confluence point of Europe, Asia and Africa (Eurasia and Africa) and is the origin of human civilization.

Mediterranean culture

The Eastern Mediterraneanmarker peoples are tied together not only by geographic position, but by Mediterranean ethnicity, food, customs, traditions, language, and a very long history. The Syrianmarker, Lebanese, Palestinian, Jordanianmarker and Maronite Cypriot peoples speak Mediterranean Arabic, also known as Levantine Arabic. Mediterranean colloquial Arabic is distinct from the other Arabic vernaculars, in that it is saturated with Aramaic, Syriac or Greek words and names. Another example of Mediterranean heritage in language is the use of the Phoenicianmarker months by all Eastern Mediterranean peoples including Israelis.
