Of course. The Middle East is a place where over 200 million people live, work, pray, party, hang out, buy things, fall in love, get married, buy homes, etc.

However, those things do not make the news because they are not interesting. The wars make the news because they are unique.

Which countries are included in the "Middle East" is often open to interpretation. It is more a general than a specific region. It is just a general term used for that part of the world, and what "that part of the world" is depends on who you are talking to and the context.
