I know of a Cairo IXP, and possibly one in the UAE. Is there one in Kuwait as yet?

Yes, KIX. Note, there's CIX and CRIX. If you are trying to
reach African users, there's also KIX ala Kenya.

The exchange point in Nairobi is called KIXP, not KIX, in case it helps avoid that confusion. The KIXP is The Place to reach Kenyan users, but no ISPs from parts of Africa outside Kenya participate in it, as far as I know. <http://www.kixp.net/>.

Terrestrial paths between adjacent African countries are still somewhat rare. I don't have science to back this up, but I would not be surprised if the toplogical centre of today's African Internet turned out to be the LINX.
