乌克兰革命的犹太问题

华沙—“那么从犹太角度呢?”我问约瑟夫•吉赛尔斯(Josef Zissels)。这位乌克兰老牌持异见者、犹太活动家、乌克兰“迈丹”(Maidan)运动的强烈支持者刚刚向华沙群众传递了运动大获全胜、总统给亚努科维奇被推翻的消息。“没有犹太角度,”他回答说,“分裂两边都有犹太人。”

这太对了。比如,乌克兰犹太人基金会(Jewish Fund for Ukraine)主席亚历山大•费尔德曼(Aleksander Feldman)就是著名的支持亚努科维奇的地区党(Party of Regions)的国会议员——尽管他在亚努科维奇被推翻后也开始谴责他。另有一些犹太寡头政治家在亚努科维奇倒台前一直和他走得很近。

但犹太人对迈丹运动的支持更加突出。基辅独立广场上被杀的82名反对者中有四人是犹太人,另有一个犹太“索特尼亚”(sotnia,即“百人队”,这个词十分讽刺地来自哥萨克大屠杀)在广场上抵抗亚努科维奇爪牙的进攻。

    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.
