    Out of these countries:
    Egypt, Iran, Turkey, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Israel, Lebanon, Gulf states (Jordan, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain or UAE), Palestine/Palestinian Territories

    Personally I would go for the UAE, particularly Dubai. It seems like the most interesting, diverse part of the Middle East with its huge skyscrapers, luxurious shopping malls, Ferraris, restaurants and things to do. It also seems to have more relaxed laws, like being able to drink alcohol, wearing more Western clothes and stuff like that. I've never been there but it seems nice and wouldn't mind living there.

    I can't think of anywhere I'd like to live less than the middle east, but if I was forced to at gunpoint it would have to be a gulf state, those being the most westernised. Mabye Bahrain would be a reasonable choice.

    Dubai in the UAE seems like probably the safest place in the Middle East. I'd love to go there and see the skyscrapers, the luxury shopping malls and the tourist attractions. Plus, I can be a Christian there and read the Bible, pray and do what I want for the most part. The problem would be the weather!

    UAE (Dubai) because I really like the lifestyle over there and there are fun leisures and activities. Andddd they have amazing shopping malls!!!!!

    Or

    Turkey because I love foods over there, I go to a Turkish restaurant with family every weekend and I blooody love it. The tradition over there is fun and interesting & people over there is very friendly and helpful - they form strong bonds.

    Turkey seems the most interesting, especially Istanbul- the city that spans two continents! The UAE seems so fake and boring, if u was going to go there I would go somewhere where I can really experience the Middle eastern culture instead of a westernised, cookie cutter environment like Dubai.

    Israel.

    It's the only country where I can be straight, gay, atheist, or be of any religion. Can't do that in the rest of the middle east countries.
