巴勒斯坦的殖民化妨碍和平

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________在过去超过25年的时间里,以色列的政策同美国以及国际社会一直格格不入。无论巴勒斯坦人是否具有正式的政府、该政府由阿拉法特还是阿巴斯领导或者阿巴斯担任总统而哈马斯控制议会和内阁,以色列对巴勒斯坦的占领阻碍了在圣地达成全面和平协议。

美国自艾森豪威尔当局以来的立场是坚定不移的,那就是,以色列的边界与1949年所确立的边界一致,同时,自1967年以来,获得全面通过的联合国242号决议要求以色列从占领领土撤军。这一政策在1978年和1993年甚至得到了以色列自己的确认,包括现任布什总统在内的所有美国总统也都强调这一政策。作为包括俄罗斯、联合国以及欧盟在内的四方之一,布什支持中东和平“路线图”。但是,以色列却采用明显无法令人接受的告诫以及先决条件正式拒绝了这一基本前提。

经以色列批准,卡特中心监督了所有的三场巴勒斯坦选举。在由大学校长以及杰出法学家组成的阵容强大的委员会监督下,这些选举是诚实、公平以及和平的,获胜以及失败双方均接受选举结果。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
