“理性的”人肉炸弹

哈马斯在巴勒斯坦议会选举中意外获胜使得有关谁是恐怖分子以及如何对付恐怖主义的问题变得愈发紧迫。哈马斯如何当政将表明恐怖分子以及人肉炸弹是否一般残酷无情。

自杀式袭击是测试性问题。恐怖分子的弹药库中没有比人肉炸弹更具有破坏力的了。由于严肃的分析明显地屈从于避免给攻击者任何合法理由的欲望,因此人肉炸弹也是被人误解的问题。但是,这一态度阻挡了了解人肉炸弹的真实身份、其动机以及如何才能予以阻止所急需的洞察明辨。

实际上,人肉炸弹分为两类。第一类包括那些在2001年的美国、2002年的印尼巴厘、2003年的马德里以及2005年夏天的伦敦制造恐怖爆炸袭击的犯罪分子。那些犯罪分子对于他们的直接或者间接受害者是否为穆斯林毫不在乎。他们的目标是制造恐怖并最终以虚无飘渺的伊斯兰家园的名义摧毁一种生活方式。所谓伊斯兰家园就是一个乌托邦式的国度,在这一国度中可以解决今生的所有问题。

    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.

  5. Harvard’s Jeffrey Frankel Measures the GOP’s Tax Plan

    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. And in his view, the US Republicans’ most recent offering fails miserably.

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.
