After visiting experience of Morocco, Qatar recently in the past two years, I have the glorious honor of understanding what their own foundations really are. Modern high rises skyscrapers, nightlife venue friendly ironically despite very conservative mystical regional oasis are obvious natural signs trending towards Eastern Mainland Asian. Another factor is Continental reputation. When not including Balkan(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikiped...ropa_03_01.png), the rest of mainland Europe isn’t really viewing the next door neighbor(Maghreb, Middle East) very fondly. Except maybe Russia. Mainland Asia typically just doesn’t care or is quite oblivious. Then of course Malaysia, Indonesia are occurring to align amiably.

All cities are now western, or morphing in that direction. They are dominated by corporate skyscrapers, surrounded by infrastructure dependent on electricity, motor vehicles, and whatever manufactured consumerism the current level of economy allows. Held together by contract law and criminal justice, and a English- based constitution. Big jet airport out on the edge of town. You know, Western.

Istanbul is marked as the point where "East meets West". At first glance, this slogan made think it's a city that has European and eastern Asian culture.

Would you say Middle Eastern cities are "eastern", "western" or you have your own fancy title for them?
Middle East is the most racially diverse area in the entire world.

Hypnotic allure respectful alliance towards the “West” only generalization is quite overly stereotypical to overrate. Reaching absolute overly favorable delusions on what tons of people think on Europe, Americas, Oceania. On the contrary, mainland Asia, Middle East entirely deserve infinitely further bright optimism honor on what they give to advancing ancient or modern civilization. Your own synopsis evaluation is comprising the “East” origins to current way after decades later on equal amount. First of all, why are you even saying derogatory insulting remarks on native homeland?
