But that's not a misspelling of antisemite; it's a whole different word, and as far as I know, is only the name of a record company.

The Arab Spring rocked north Africa more than the ME, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Egypt all had massive changes. Only really Syria did in the ME.

Iraq, and Yemen are both having a civil war as well. Lebanon is dealing with the spillover of the Syrian Civil War. Several other countries have had major governmental changes. The Arab Spring most certainly affected the Asian part of the Arab world.

Between uprisings or protests in Beirut, Oman, Bahrain, and Saudi Arabia (all put down, Bahrain's still somewhat ongoing), democratic stirrings in Iran, outright civil war in Yemen, outright civil war and near disintegration of the state in Syria and Iraq, constant fighting in Kurdistan, increased terrorism/political upheavals in Turkey, the formation of Islamic State, and the massive refugee crisis... I'd say that it affected the Middle East *more* than North Africa. Also Egypt is almost always included in the Middle East in addition to being part of North Africa.

As the question asks for a region, Munich isn't close enough! You can't get an question right with an answer that doesn't answer the question.

It's called the Tower of London. Nowhere is it called London Tower. I'm all for flexibility on spelling and allowing names that are commonly used to refer to the same thing, the Netherlands and Holland for instance, but London Tower is just wrong. Sorry.
