观察员国巴勒斯坦

纽约—巴勒斯坦不再是一个“实体”,而是一个国家——确切地说,是联合国非成员观察员国,和梵蒂冈一样。巴勒斯坦的议案得到了138个成员国的支持(德国、英国和其他39国投了弃权票),只有7个成员国表示反对,马绍尔群岛、帕劳和巴拿马加入了美国和以色列的反对行列,后两个国家的孤立愈加深刻了。

以色列总理内塔尼亚胡怒不可遏,他称巴勒斯坦权力机构主席阿巴斯为骗子,并批准在巴勒斯坦被占区建设3 000个新犹太新家园。他的外交部长利伯曼(Avigdor Lieberman)威胁说,如果联合国举行投票,以色列将摧毁约旦河西岸的巴勒斯坦权力机构政府。

但以色列才是现状的罪魁祸首。阿巴斯及其总理法耶兹(Salam Fayyad)比他们之前的各任巴勒斯坦领导人都更加温和,对与以色列展开严肃对话的态度也更开放。巴勒斯坦警察与以色列人展开合作阻止约旦河西岸暴力。巴勒斯坦权力机构的主要关注点是改善经济,而不是武装冲突。

    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.

    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    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.
