内塔尼亚胡的选择

拉马拉—在美国总统奥巴马和以色列首相内塔尼亚胡的高峰会谈即将举行之际,外界讨论的焦点大都集中在这位新当选的以色列领导人是否会最终表示支持两个国家的解决方案。这种讨论是错误的。以色列人不应该决定巴勒斯坦实体的地位,而巴勒斯坦人也不应该对以色列人如何称呼自己的国家拥有发言权。

奥巴马应该问内塔尼亚胡的唯一问题是:以色列将何时撤出巴勒斯坦的被占领土?不应允许任何混淆视听的企图—不论是关于“经济和平”的言论还是坚持阿拉伯人承认以色列国的犹太性—来干扰结束这种难获承认的占领的目标。

在奥巴马第一次会晤一位中东领导人时,一项简单而勇敢的计划被勾勒出来。在阿拉伯领导人的强力支持下,约旦国王阿卜杜拉二世正式提出了这项由阿拉伯联盟和伊斯兰国家组织设计的和平计划。尽管以色列还在黎巴嫩和加沙进行战争,阿拉伯人仍然承诺一旦以色列撤出1967年占领的土地,就与其实现关系正常化。

    A Tax Plan that’s All Stuffing?

    US President Donald Trump has set a Christmas deadline for enacting the Republican tax plan, and economic observers are virtually unanimous in judging it a turkey. A scheme that squeezes the middle class and blows out the fiscal and current-account deficits may pass, but it will never fly.

    The Next Battle in China’s War on Corruption

    • Chinese President Xi Jinping knows well the threat that corruption poses to the authority of the Communist Party of China and the state it controls. 
    • But moving beyond Xi's anti-corruption purge to build robust and lasting anti-graft institutions will not be easy, owing to enduring opportunities for bureaucratic capture.

    The Dangers of Nuclear Bombast

    US President Donald Trump has refused to recertify the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, an agreement that he once predicted would "lead to a nuclear holocaust." Unfortunately, by creating more perverse incentives for hostile regimes to pursue nuclear armaments at all costs, Trump has made the nightmare scenario he fears even more likely.

    Insider Interview

    • With right-wing populists ascendant in Poland and Hungary, and gaining ground elsewhere in the European Union, politics in some parts of the West looks increasingly like politics in Russia.

    Putting Europe’s Long-Term Unemployed Back to Work

    Across the European Union, millions of people who are willing and able to work have been unemployed for a year or longer, at great cost to social cohesion and political stability. If the EU is serious about stopping the rise of populism, it will need to do more to ensure that labor markets are working for everyone.

    A Belt and Road for the Americas?

    In a time of global uncertainty, a vision of “made in the Americas” prosperity provides a unifying agenda for the continent. If implemented, the US could reassert its historical leadership among a group of countries that share its fundamental values, as well as an interest in inclusive economic growth and rising living standards.

    How Best to Promote Research and Development

    Clearly, there is something appealing about a start-up-based innovation strategy: it feels democratic, accessible, and so California. But it is definitely not the only way to boost research and development, or even the main way, and it is certainly not the way most major innovations in the US came about during the twentieth century.
