1Your biggest issue will be the Israeli stamp. If you have proof of entry into Israel, or exit/entry to Egypt or Jordan at an Israeli border crossing, it's a problem in Sudan.
Either skip Israel by taking the ferry from Egypt to Aqaba, Jordan. Or fly in and out of Israel and tell them not to stamp your passport.

210 days is just about enough time to see the main attractions in Egypt, let alone Jordan, Israel, Sudan, ....
If you are desperate to see two countries then you could fly into Cairo for a couple of days, then visit Luxor for a couple of days, then fly to Amman and spend a couple of days in Petra/Wadi Rum. Bear in mind though that even flying a lot of your time will be taken up in transit. If you are planning to go overland/by ferry that's a whole other story. It takes a minimum of 12 hours for example to get from Cairo to Petra overland and that's if the ferry is running on time (it is sometimes hours late) and you manage to co-ordinate your transport perfectly with no waiting and there are no delays at the borders. It could easily take a lot longer.
In order to make your visit remotely worthwhile you need at least 2 full days (probably three nights) in Cairo, two full days (three nights) in Luxor, and two full days (three nights) in Petra/Wadi Rum. And that will really be scraping the surface.
