Thanks for posting this, I always look forward to your articles.

One thing that came to mind is the reason that I speak "Arablish" is because of the lack of vocabulary i have, or just Arabic terms available that deal with modern concepts. That being said, that's only a symptom of the problem, not the actual problem.

I think that the Muslim world does try to have a Muslim culture, not at the state level necessarily but definitely on the smaller community level. Furthermore this culture encourages detaching from modern day media, propaganda and consumption so it directly combats this cultural dominance of the west. To what extent it's actually effective has to do with how willing individuals are to fully implementing Islam.
