    The definition of continent is cultural. In the times of the Roman Empire, Egypt was already called that, and Africa was called the current Tunisia. For me, from a geographical point of view, Egypt is mostly part of Africa (the Sinai peninsula is in Asia), but because of its history and even its genetics, Egypt is part of the Middle East. Of course through its history it had contacts with Sub-Saharan Africa ... but it also had contacts with Europe. So, for me it is different the geographical identification of Egypt, and the cultural and genetic identification.
