穆巴拉克的最后一笑?

开罗——2011年8月3日将是埃及历史上永远被人铭记的一天。前总统穆巴拉克被推上了公共审判席,与他一起走入法庭的还有他的两个儿子和前内政部长埃尔-阿杜里将军(General Habib el-Adly)。这一事件将给埃及(事实上是整个阿拉伯世界)带来深远影响。

这并不是阿拉伯独裁者第一次被推上审判席。萨达姆·侯赛因和本·阿里已经先于穆巴拉克“享受”了这一待遇。萨达姆的被捕受以美国为首的联盟之助甚深;本·阿里则是在逃往沙特后被缺席审判的。但在埃及,正如一位朋友告诉我的,“完全是埃及人在埃及做到了这件事”,“这就是我们为何对此如此自豪的原因。”

但穆巴拉克的审判过程可能会引起争议。7月29日,不少组织在开罗解放广场举行了示威,以示埃及革命者之间的合作无间(公审穆巴拉克便是他们的要求之一)。但这次示威表明,伊斯兰主义者和世俗派之间在穆巴拉克被废黜后出现了深刻分歧。此外,这次示威还表明,埃及沙拉菲(Salafi)在动员支持者方面具有很大的能量,他们构成了解放广场示威的压倒多数。

    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.
