欧洲圣战主义的形成

马德里——比利时历史学家亨利·皮雷纳将欧洲这块基督教大陆的诞生与公元八世纪与伊斯兰教的决裂联系在一起。皮雷纳或许永远也不会想到布鲁塞尔有朝一日会出现穆斯林贫民窟,更不会想到这里会成为圣战主义的中心,眼睁睁看着被边缘化和愤怒的穆斯林青年从欧洲的境内反抗欧洲。

现阶段用离婚来解决问题已经并不现实。但也不能容许伊斯兰教学者塔里克·拉马丹所宣扬的那种婚姻继续下去。埃及穆斯林兄弟会创始人的孙子拉马丹是一名瑞士公民,同时在英国拥有居民身份,他提出伊斯兰教的道德和价值观应当被注入到欧洲国家的体制。那样欧洲就不仅要容忍伊斯兰教,而且还要在实际上接受它作为自身的有机组成部分。

拉马丹愿景的问题在于欧洲是一块世俗势力占压倒性优势的大陆,在道德观方面有着深刻的前瞻性思维。而伊斯兰社会则恰恰相反,拥有深刻的宗教色彩并且深深植根于过去。当伊斯兰教徒谈论政治和社会改革的时候,他们普遍都在回首过去,希望复兴的那个时代否定从性别平等到同性婚姻在内的欧洲核心原则。就连那些支持伊斯兰教现代化的穆斯林往往也会对欧洲的道德愿景望而却步。

    Angela Merkel’s Endgame?

    The collapse of coalition negotiations has left German Chancellor Angela Merkel facing a stark choice between forming a minority government or calling for a new election. But would a minority government necessarily be as bad as Germans have traditionally thought?

    Preparing for the Trump Trade Wars

    In the first 11 months of his presidency, Donald Trump has failed to back up his words – or tweets – with action on a variety of fronts. But the rest of the world's governments, and particularly those in Asia and Europe, would be mistaken to assume that he won't follow through on his promised "America First" trade agenda.

    The Platform Economy

    While developed countries in Europe, North America, and Asia are rapidly aging, emerging economies are predominantly youthful. Nigerian, Indonesian, and Vietnamese young people will shape global work trends at an increasingly rapid pace, bringing to bear their experience in dynamic informal markets on a tech-enabled gig economy.

    Profiles in Discouragement

    One day, the United States will turn the page on Donald Trump. But, as Americans prepare to observe their Thanksgiving holiday, they should reflect that their country's culture and global standing will never recover fully from the wounds that his presidency is inflicting on them.

    How Women Shape Coups

    In Zimbabwe, as in all coups, much behind-the-scenes plotting continues to take place in the aftermath of the military's overthrow of President Robert Mugabe. But who the eventual winners and losers are may depend, among other things, on the gender of the plotters.

    The Abnormality of Oil

    At the 2017 Abu Dhabi Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, the consensus among industry executives was that oil prices will still be around $60 per barrel in November 2018. But there is evidence to suggest that the uptick in global growth and developments in Saudi Arabia will push the price as high as $80 in the meantime.

    The Saudi Prince’s Dangerous War Games

    Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is working hard to consolidate power and establish his country as the Middle East’s only hegemon. But his efforts – which include an attempt to trigger a war between Israel and Hezbollah in Lebanon – increasingly look like the work of an immature gambler.
