La Palestine peut-elle gagner la paix ?

RAMALLAH – L’annonce de l’accord de cessez-le-feu qui a mis fin le mois dernier au dernier affrontement entre Israël et la Palestine était remarquable. Avec une synchronisation quasi parfaite, le président palestinien Mahmoud Abbas a annoncé la fin du conflit à Gaza lors d’un journal télévisé depuis ses quartiers généraux de Ramallah, tandis que les dirigeants du Hamas appelaient la population de Gaza à célébrer dans la rue leur victoire supposée.

Évidemment, avec plus de 2200 morts palestiniens, essentiellement des civils, et plus de 10.000 blessés, en sus de la destruction des maisons, des écoles, des mosquées et d’autres infrastructures, l’issue du conflit ne peut pas être vraiment qualifiée de victoire. Ce n’en est pas moins la première fois que les Palestiniens ont été en mesure d’approcher une situation de dissuasion mutuelle avec les Israéliens.

La position de la Palestine a en outre été renforcée par la reconnaissance, par l’Assemblée générale des Nations unies, du statut de la Palestine comme État non membre observateur, auquel les diplomates palestiniens peuvent se référer pour contraindre Israël à prendre leurs aspirations nationales au sérieux. L’adhésion de la Palestine à des agences des Nations unies, dont la Cour pénale internationale, a également accru le pouvoir de négociation de ses dirigeants.

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • In the first year of his presidency, Donald Trump has consistently sold out the blue-collar, socially conservative whites who brought him to power, while pursuing policies to enrich his fellow plutocrats. 

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend. In reality, total factor productivity, the best summary measure of the pace of technical change, has been stagnating since 2005 in the US and across the advanced-country world.

    The Hungarian Government’s Failed Campaign of Lies

    The Hungarian government has released the results of its "national consultation" on what it calls the "Soros Plan" to flood the country with Muslim migrants and refugees. But no such plan exists, only a taxpayer-funded propaganda campaign to help a corrupt administration deflect attention from its failure to fulfill Hungarians’ aspirations.
