以色列对恐怖分子的援助

以色列总理本雅明内塔尼亚胡政府拆毁驾车撞向一群行人,造成两人死亡(其中包括一名三个月大的婴儿)的阿尔沙鲁迪家房屋的决定既冷酷无情又适得其反。通过惩罚那些唯一已知罪行是与犯罪份子有关的人,以色列无意间把注意力从恐怖袭击和行凶后当场死亡的罪犯转向了显而易见的集体惩罚政策。

如果阻止恐怖袭击是以色列的主要目的,它应当竭尽全力确保这种行为受到所有人的谴责。其中包括确保实施袭击的犯罪分子以及罪行的同谋者和教唆者依法接受惩罚。

惩罚恐怖分子的家人和邻里或者那些与他们具有相同种族和宗教信仰的人效果只会适得其反,进一步激起对以色列的敌视并驱散本应针对恐怖行为实际肇事者的道德义愤。随着观察员日益将双方同等看待,认为他们同时既是受害者又是加害者,国际社会对以色列的支持和同情正在逐渐消退。

    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.
