巴勒斯坦的抉择时刻

NOT TO BE PUBLISHED BEFORE JANUARY 10

马哈茂德·阿巴斯在巴拉斯坦民族权力机构主席的选举中取得胜利,这对巴勒斯坦领导层而言是一个挑战。阿拉法特逝世后几小时,阿巴斯就被推举为巴解组织执委会总书记,牢牢获得该组织的支持。巴解组织代表了全巴勒斯坦人,包括那些在外散居的犹太人。巴解组织主席选举给了阿巴斯实现其政治主张一个最起码的合法性。

这一主张尽管与阿法特的相近,但主要方式不同。阿巴斯(又名阿布·马赞)一直不断地公开地批评被他称为“反抗运动的军事化”的现象(即巴勒斯坦人对以色列占领的反抗运动)。即使在阿拉法特去世前,阿巴斯认为使用武力削弱了巴勒斯坦的谈判资本。在整个竞选活动中,阿巴斯始终坚持这一立场,拒绝巴勒斯坦强硬派要求其为从前的言论作出道歉。

    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.
