Palestine : Pourquoi une guerre civile est nécessaire

Malgré la dernière trêve hâtivement négociée, la lutte entre le Fatah nationaliste et le Hamas islamiste semble gagner en intensité. Les choix politiques palestiniens, toujours autodestructeurs, ont entraîné une aggravation de la guerre intestine. La population subit des désordres toujours plus graves et la perspective d’un État stable s’éloigne de jour en jour.

L’étonnante capacité du mouvement palestinien à se saboter de date pas d’hier. À la fin des années 60, l’OLP, dirigée par le Fatah, a tellement contrarié ses hôtes jordaniens qu’ils l’expulsèrent par la force. Dans les années 70, l’OLP s’est immiscée dans la guerre civile au Liban, se rendant tout aussi indésirable dans ce pays. Le seul point sur lequel les dirigeants politiques israéliens, syriens et libanais purent s’entendre dans les années 80 était l’expulsion de l’OLP du Liban. Et dans les années 90, l’OLP a gâché ses chances de gouverner la Cisjordanie et la bande de Gaza, et d’y établir un gouvernement stable et axé sur le développement, et de faire la paix avec Israël.

En rejetant un accord avec Israël en 2000, le Fatah est à l’origine d’une violente révolte qui dure encore, et qui a détruit les infrastructures mises en place la décennie précédente. Les moyens considérables provenant de l’aide étrangère ont été volés, dilapidés ou détruits par une violence inutile.

    The Brexit Surrender

    European Union leaders meeting in Brussels have given the go-ahead to talks with Britain on post-Brexit trade relations.

  3. Murdoch's Last Stand?

    Rupert Murdoch’s sale of 21st Century Fox’s entertainment assets to Disney for $66 billion may mark the end of the media mogul’s career, which will long be remembered for its corrosive effect on democratic discourse on both sides of the Atlantic. 

    From enabling the rise of Donald Trump to hacking the telephone of a murdered British schoolgirl, Murdoch’s media empire has staked its success on stoking populist rage.

    The Dangerous Delusion of Price Stability

    Since the hyperinflation of the 1970s, which central banks were right to combat by whatever means necessary, maintaining positive but low inflation has become a monetary-policy obsession. But, because the world economy has changed dramatically since then, central bankers have started to miss the monetary-policy forest for the trees.

    Jeffrey Frankel, a professor at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government and a former member of President Bill Clinton’s Council of Economic Advisers, outlines the five criteria he uses to judge the efficacy of tax reform efforts.

But ensuring that those changes are positive – helping to fight tumors and mosquito-borne illnesses, for example – will require scientists to apply the utmost caution.
