关于伊斯兰教辩论的探讨

巴黎——这场辩论是从阿尔及利亚小说家兼记者卡迈勒·达乌德为意大利《共和国报》撰写的一篇关于发生在2015年新年前夜德国科隆的一系列性侵事件的文章开始的。据外界报道来自北非和中东的移民群体制造了这些性侵事件,而达乌德对此的解释是该地区众多穆斯林正遭受极端性剥夺,而在他笔下,这样的状况造成了“与女性及其身体和欲望的关系并不健康。”

达乌德似乎并未预料到他这篇文章所造成的反应,特别是在其文章被《世界报》转载的法国。在遭到仇视伊斯兰教的令人难堪的指责后,达乌德宣布他将停止其新闻工作并专注于创作小说。但限制对伊斯兰教的批评不仅剥夺了像达乌德这样的作者讲话的权利;还以敷衍的态度彻底扼杀了一场迫切需要的探讨。

毋庸置疑,达乌德决定写这篇文章需要非凡的勇气。2014年,在达乌德发表从被谋害阿拉伯兄弟的视角重新演绎阿尔贝·加缪作品《局外人》的首部小说《默尔索调查》后不久,一位萨拉菲派伊玛目就宣布了一道伊斯兰教令,呼吁以叛教和发表异端邪说的罪名判处达乌德死刑。但这并未阻止他对争议问题的探讨。

    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.

    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.
