一触即发的中东局势

特拉维夫 —— 宿命论的传统智慧正在中东各国抬头:战争一定会不可避免的爆发。有人把战争看作打开僵持局面的唯一方法,依靠战争彻底调整不正常的地区秩序,因为目前各主要势力不仅分歧严重,并且无法解决各自政府在合法性方面的危机。

以色列和叙利亚以及真主党之间新一轮密集的煽动性言论已经引发了对于以色列北部边境可能爆发战争的担忧。局势非常敏感,而叙利亚人的误解则让紧张局势进一步加剧,他们将以色列国防部长 埃胡德·巴拉克启动和平谈判的呼吁错误地理解为威胁,而巴拉克启动和谈的目的正是要防止“爆发全面的地区战争。”

真主党领导人 哈桑·纳斯鲁拉首次公开警告以色列,新一轮冲突将不仅再局限于以色列-黎巴嫩之间的对决,而会牵扯到整个地区的“对峙轴心” —— 叙利亚、伊朗、真主党和哈马斯。如果以色列对伊朗核设施发动空袭也将爆发全面冲突。此外,纳斯鲁拉明确指出以色列在战争中彻底摧毁黎巴嫩的“达伊亚主义”将招致同样的报复。

    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.
