瑞典之耻

发自维也纳——上个月,瑞典城市马尔默的唯一一座犹太教堂被人投掷了易燃物品,打碎了3块玻璃。就在事件发生的前一天,有人在教堂留下了炸弹警告。而在两个月之前就已经发生了一起针对同一所教堂的袭击事件。

数月以来,当地的犹太人都感觉到周边的环境越来越充满敌意,许多人声称自己不敢身穿任何标示其犹太身份的服饰上街。而在年初,丹尼尔·施瓦门撒尔就在《华尔街日报》上用最直白的语言阐述了犹太人恐惧的原因——“去年,一伙高喊着‘Sieg Heil’(德文意为‘胜利’,法西斯分子见面时的用语)以及‘希特勒,希特勒’,主要由穆斯林组成的暴徒向在城市中央广场和平声援以色列的一小队犹太人投掷瓶子和石块,而那些到犹太教堂作礼拜的人,以及学校里的犹太孩子都经常被称之为‘臭犹太人’。”

据马尔默市警方称,2009年在本市发生的115宗种族仇恨犯罪中有52宗是针对犹太人或犹太机构的。反犹太主义正在卷土重来,而马尔默事件仅仅是反映瑞典全国现状的一个极端例子而已。

  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.

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.
