Who Is the "Middle East"?

Amy Waldman had a report in Saturday's New York Times which informed us of the plight of " housemaids in the Middle East", (Sri Lankan Maids' High Price for Foreign Jobs).

Although Israel is located in the Middle East, that country was not included in the story.

Perhaps the countries where abuse is practiced should have been identified more properly as either Arab or Muslim?
