真主党能经受住“阿拉伯之春”吗?

贝鲁特—三年前,区域民意调查显示中东地区最受人们爱戴的领导是真主党领袖哈桑·纳斯鲁拉,叙利亚总统巴沙尔·阿萨德以及伊朗总统马哈茂德·艾哈迈迪-内贾德。当时的人们都很欣赏他们的做法:在黎巴嫩和加沙勇于面对伊朗,奋起反攻美国在当地的侵略性政策。

随着阿拉伯之春的到来,当地的公众舆论开始转向优化民权以及外交政策的民主改革上来。今天,阿萨德遭到人们的辱骂,内贾德政府被指责暴力镇压支持民主的抗议者,真主党和伊朗则由于继续支持阿萨德而被谴责,因为阿萨德屠杀害当地的居民。

因此,在阿拉伯以及穆斯林世界,真主党并不像过去一样广泛受到人们的欢迎,但是它仍然是一支效率极高的武装势力。在政治上,正如多年之前马基雅维利提出的那样,受到敬畏比受到爱戴更重要。

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.
