穆斯林内战

中东逊尼派和什叶派穆斯林的分歧要比以色列和阿拉伯之间的敌意更深科吗?考虑到某些阿拉伯国家政府对于黎巴嫩真主党攻击以色列的决定作出的反应,你可能会这样认为。即使当以色列的炸弹投在贝鲁特和提尔,可能是最为保守的阿拉伯穆斯林国家的沙特阿拉伯公开谴责什叶派真主党挑起与以色列的冲突。在阿以冲突的历史上还从来没有一个自认为是阿拉伯穆斯林人民领袖的国家如此公开地支持以色列。

而且,沙特阿拉伯与真主党的交恶并非一时。埃及和约旦也直率地谴责了真主党及其领导人纳斯鲁拉的冒险主义。

这一惊人的事件发展的背后是什么?我们是否在目睹阿拉伯民族主义和伊斯兰宗派主义关系中根本性的变化呢?沙特阿拉伯的逊尼派政府是否对什叶派伊斯兰更为关切和恐惧,要超出它对阿拉伯团结和巴勒斯坦事业的承诺呢?

  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.
