加沙城——由于管理加沙和西岸地带的管理机构相互仇视,巴勒斯坦民众感觉自己被当成了试验品。 在哈马斯管理的加沙地带,武装反抗以色列的高昂代价让重新挑起战端的企图失去了市场。 而在法塔赫领导的西岸地区,谈判没有取得任何进展。 巴勒斯坦政治的两条路线——抵抗和谈判——都无法点燃人们独立的希望。 巴勒斯坦人也因此面临着1948年以来最为艰巨的挑战。

以色列在加沙地带对哈马斯重启战端的威胁引起了人们的重视。 加沙街道和周边地区的狼籍景象至今仍历历在目,哈马斯不愿冒险刺激以色列发起一场新的战争。 赛义德·西亚姆和尼扎尔·拉扬等两名哈马斯高级领导人在那场战争中丧生,严重削弱了哈马斯的军事实力。 哈马斯的军事实力不久前才刚刚恢复。

哈马斯发现自己陷入了非常尴尬的境地,因为在政治斡旋的同时进行强力抵抗是它的既定政策。 但这项政策遭到了失败。 哈马斯已对加沙地带的所有抵抗组织施压,要求它们避免刺激以色列。 哈马斯高级领导人马哈茂德·扎哈尔在一次史无前例的演讲中宣称,从加沙地带向以色列发射的任何导弹都将是“背叛的导弹”。

    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.
