来自左翼的反犹主义

纽约—前伦敦市长、左派工党政客肯·利文斯通(Ken Livingstone)因为宣称希特勒在20世纪30年代初是犹太复国主义者而被工党暂停党员资格。利文斯通说:“在变得疯狂、最终杀戮六百万犹太人之前,”希特勒只是希望将他们从所在国家赶回巴勒斯坦。而这应该意味着他是个犹太复国主义者。

从历史角度看,这是无稽之谈:希特勒从未宣扬巴勒斯坦是犹太国家。而暗示元首对犹太人的仇恨让他与渴望建立自己的国家以逃避暴力反犹主义的犹太人站在同一边绝对是一种冒犯甚至更糟糕的说法。

但 利文斯通在为自己辩护时可能是真诚的。他说,“真正的反犹主义者不但憎恨以色列的犹太人,也憎恨他们的犹太邻居……这是一种胜利厌恶。”因此,仇恨以色列的犹太人没问题,因为他们是“犹太复国主义者”,并且这一情绪并非发自肺腑。利文斯通所属工党的左翼领导人杰瑞米·科尔宾(Jeremy Corbyn)在声称反犹主义不可能是左派的问题,因为工党总是“反种族主义的”时毫无疑问也同样真诚。

    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.
