新反犹主义

纽约—有人对我们说,伊斯兰教——不仅是极端伊斯兰教——是西方文明的威胁。现在,这些人应该感到满足:美国总统及其主要顾问和他们站在了一起。特朗普的国家安全顾问麦克·弗林(Mike Flynn)将军发推特说:“穆斯林恐慌是理性的。”极右翼媒体布莱巴特新闻(Breitbart News)前执行主席、特朗普的首席政治策略师、国家安全委员会成员史蒂芬·班农(Stephen Bannon)表示,“犹太-基督教”的西方正在和伊斯兰教打一场全球战争。

特朗普承诺“美国第一”,这句话来自20世纪30年代美国孤立主义口号,其做著名的鼓吹者是查尔斯·林白(Charles Lindbergh)。林白是一名飞行员,以反犹太人闻名于世,他指责犹太人和自由派让美国卷入了与希特勒的战争,而希特勒是他的偶像。林白认为,“要想保持和平与安全……就必须抵抗外国军队的攻击和外国人种的稀释。”

因此,“美国第一”骨子里是种族主义。白宫目前对伊斯兰教的态度与20世纪30年代的反犹主义有相似之处吗?班农、弗林和特朗普只是将旧偏见翻新,用反穆代替了反犹吗?

    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.
