Oriental and Eastern Orthodox: questions

In the EO use of the term 'Ecumenical' I am reminded of a certain nation in the world today that names its local sporting events 'World Series'. Its a similar mentality. I wonder, though, why the years under Islam have seemed to have softened the approach of the Oriental churches, but the years under Communism, and the Monarchy before that, have hardened the EO? Is it that the EO are too entwined with their national cultures, too supremacist, whereas the Orientals, existing, AFAIK all in Islamic countries, and in the minority - apart from Lebanon? - have learned to take the lesser place? The same triumphalism of the EO's is found in American Evangelical churches.
