泡沫中的以色列选举

特拉维夫—以色列占领巴勒斯坦领土45年后,内塔尼亚胡政府宣布两国方案死刑4年后,彻底否决以色列的巴勒斯坦问题的选举最近结束了,内塔尼亚胡政府没能赢得新一届任期。是的,内塔尼亚胡在选举中败落,但他失去支持并非和平阵营的胜利。胜利者是专注于国内事务的无形的政治中间派,以及合并主义的宗教右派。

以色列的现代经济完全融入全球体系,其与巴勒斯坦的冲突几十年来都在吸引着全世界媒体的目光,世界主要大国纷纷站队,好像它是一个独立的隐蔽星球似的。中间派政党的竞选口号是“社会公正”,极端宗教学生应该“共同分担”军事任务(自以色列建国以来,他们就免于服役),以色列苦苦挣扎的中产阶级也应该得到保护。

民调显示,只有18%的选民担心巴勒斯坦问题,但拉宾所属、签署了奥斯陆协议的工党仍保持着克制,甚至没有提出和平进程,唯恐影响选情。工党现任领导人亚基莫维奇(Shelly Yachimovich)以否定的政治抛弃了其前任巴拉克(Ehud Barak)的宿命论(认为巴勒斯坦冲突不存在解决方案),她甚至拒绝承认存在巴勒斯坦问题。

    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.
