巴勒斯坦的心态

拉马拉——据巴勒斯坦人说,巴勒斯坦成为联合国成员国的想法起初正是受到美国总统巴拉克·奥巴马的启发。奥巴马2010年9月23日在联大讲话时说希望“明年再聚首时能就联合国新成员国的诞生达成一致——建立一个拥有独立、主权,能与以色列和平共处的巴勒斯坦国。”巴勒斯坦人对奥巴马的话信以为真了。

奥巴马开始重启中东和平进程时,以色列拒绝冻结临时定居点的建设。为了换取以色列在拟定的巴勒斯坦国境内暂时停建犹太人定居点,美国甚至主动提出出售价值30亿美元的军火。但以色列总理本雅明·内塔尼亚胡拒绝了美国的提议。

九个月后,奥巴马再次试图启动谈判。他在五月的讲话中说,“以巴边境应该以1967年边界线为蓝本进行相互交换,以便确立安全且得到双方认可的边境线。”

    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.
