伊斯兰面目的欧洲政治?

伦敦—唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)扬言要禁止穆斯林进入美国,这引起了我的两位青年朋友的对话:“如果要在穆斯林移民和捍卫自由道德观之间作虎选择,”我问,“你会选哪个?”他们均否认了问题的前提。移民本身,他们认为,也许存在反动道德,但他们的孩子们生长在今天的英国、美国或欧洲大陆,会与父辈大不相同。但果真如此吗?

我的问题的重点不是伊斯兰恐怖主义,即特朗普爆发的表面目标,而是大规模穆斯林移民给我的青年朋友(以及大部分受过教育的欧洲人)视为理所当然的道德观所造成的威胁。暂且把恐怖主义放在一边,如果伊斯兰教日益对英国法律和政治形成越来越大的影响,他们难道不会担忧吗?

这可不是假设的可能性。2010年欧洲穆斯林人口,为4,410万,或总人口的6%。2011年英国穆斯林人口为270万(总人口的4.8%),而2001年只有160万。从当前移民趋势以及更重要的穆斯林高于平均值的生育率(每户人家有三个孩子,英国平均水平为1.8个),穆斯林占英国人口比重在未来几十年中必然会不断增加。

    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.
