Les véritables ennemis du Hamas

JERUSALEM – En Iran, des éléments proches du pouvoir offriraient un million de dollars pour assassiner le président égyptien Hosni Moubarak en raison de son opposition au Hamas dans la bande de Gaza.

En réponse, Tariq Alhomayed, un Saoudien rédacteur en chef du journal Al-Sharq al-Awsat, qualifie le Hamas de marionnette de l'Iran et déclare que ce pays est la véritable menace contre la sécurité du monde arabe".

Le ministre des Affaires étrangères égyptien, Ahmed Aboul Gheit, est du même avis, et il n'est pas le seul. Lorsque les pays arabes se sont réunis pour discuter de la crise à Gaza, l'Arabie saoudite a opposé son veto à toute action. Même l'Autorité palestinienne estime que le Hamas est responsable des combats. Les militants nationalistes du Fatah à la tête de l'Autorité palestinienne ne cachent pas leur espoir de voir le Hamas, leur rival islamiste, perdre la guerre.

    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.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend.
