以色列的中间派胜利

耶路撒冷-以色列的选举是中间主义和国民意见的胜利。事实上,这不仅是解释票数多寡的钥匙,也是理解以色列公众舆论、下届政府及其政策的关键。

源于经验,大多数以色列人都已经发展出一套融合了传统左翼和右翼思想的世界观。一方面,他们想在建立巴勒斯坦国的基础上与巴勒斯坦人达成全面的政治解决方案,以此交换真正的持久和平。另一方面,他们知道没有巴勒斯坦领袖足以强硬或温和到促成此事发生。

左翼和右翼都已经被证明是错误的了。左翼做出大幅度退让,为了和平甘冒巨险。但是它没有可靠方法来与伊朗,叙利亚,哈马斯和黎巴嫩真主党等激进势力达成一致,所有这些势力都谋求摧毁以色列。巴勒斯坦民族权力机构(PA)没有这么极端,但是它的领导力量薄弱,没有控制加沙,而且仍然充斥着了强硬原素。

    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.
