加沙不领情

加沙——巴勒斯坦主席阿巴斯已经以个人身份向联合国秘书长潘基文递交了巴勒斯坦成为联合国完全会员国的动议。目前还有待观察的是,从2007年6月开始控制加沙地带的哈马斯会不会支持这一由其死对头、阿巴斯领导的位于约旦河西岸的巴勒斯坦权力机构提出的动议。

与以色列的谈判在一年多的时间里没有任何进展,这使阿巴斯及其同事相信,只有追求联合国会员国资格才能解决问题。以色列仍在约旦河西岸不断地建设定居点,这使得阿巴斯及其同事愈加认定靠谈判无法达成建设性成果,只能寄希望于联合国一地两国的解决方案了。

此外,人们广泛认为,阿拉伯之春鼓舞了巴勒斯坦领导人去寻求游戏规则的变化。整个阿拉伯地区虽然内顾不暇,但仍然产生了新一代更为积极地支持巴勒斯坦的领导人。

    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.
