“欧拉比亚”的神话

伦敦-当前,关于有多少年青欧洲穆斯林易于受到恐怖主义的影响,伊斯兰教怎样导致激进思想,以及穆斯林怎样因为其信条而选择居住在独立的区域并因此而创造了一个繁殖恐怖分子的沼泽等问题,有一种很盛行的说法。这种说法最极端的形式是“欧拉比亚”的观点,该观点是一个据称描述了穆斯林群体现在正在污染欧洲真正的DNA这一现象的煽动性术语。

在这种说法中,对产生于国内的恐怖主义的担忧以及将穆斯林作为外国敌人对待的冲动,以及包容宗教差异是很危险的观点,最能产生共鸣。因此,产生了一个假二歧式,其中,穆斯林必须在西方及欧洲身份或者号称独立的伊斯兰身份之间作出选择。

但是,欧洲穆斯林的信仰和他们对欧洲国家的认同之间的关系很少符合“欧拉比亚”的定式。在约翰·L·艾斯泊思托(John L. Esposito)和达利亚·莫加海德(Dalia Mogahed)的作品《谁为伊斯兰教说话:十亿穆斯林真正在想什么》一书中,进行了广泛的全球民意调查研究,这些研究包含了对欧洲穆斯林态度详细而复杂的分析。分析的结果显示,宗教和国家身份是赞美性概念,而不是竞争性概念。

    Empowering China’s New Miracle Workers

    China’s success in the next five years will depend largely on how well the government manages the tensions underlying its complex agenda. In particular, China’s leaders will need to balance a muscular Communist Party, setting standards and protecting the public interest, with an empowered market, driving the economy into the future.

    The Sovereignty that Really Matters

    The preference of some countries to isolate themselves within their borders is anachronistic and self-defeating, but it would be a serious mistake for others, fearing contagion, to respond by imposing strict isolation. Even in states that have succumbed to reductionist discourses, much of the population has not.

    Resurrecting Creditor Adjustment

    When the Bretton Woods Agreement was hashed out in 1944, it was agreed that countries with current-account deficits should be able to limit temporarily purchases of goods from countries running surpluses. In the ensuing 73 years, the so-called "scarce-currency clause" has been largely forgotten; but it may be time to bring it back.

    Trump’s Republican Collaborators

    Republican leaders have a choice: they can either continue to collaborate with President Donald Trump, thereby courting disaster, or they can renounce him, finally putting their country’s democracy ahead of loyalty to their party tribe. They are hardly the first politicians to face such a decision.

    How Money Could Unblock the Brexit Talks

    With talks on the UK's withdrawal from the EU stalled, negotiators should shift to the temporary “transition” Prime Minister Theresa May officially requested last month. Above all, the negotiators should focus immediately on the British budget contributions that will be required to make an orderly transition possible.

    Is Vladimir Putin Losing His Grip?

    In recent decades, as President Vladimir Putin has entrenched his authority, Russia has seemed to be moving backward socially and economically. But while the Kremlin knows that it must reverse this trajectory, genuine reform would be incompatible with the kleptocratic character of Putin’s regime.

    Rage Against the Elites

    • With the advantage of hindsight, four recent books bring to bear diverse perspectives on the West’s current populist moment. 
    • Taken together, they help us to understand what that moment is and how it arrived, while reminding us that history is contingent, not inevitable

    Don’t Bank on Bankruptcy for Banks

    As a part of their efforts to roll back the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act, congressional Republicans have approved a measure that would have courts, rather than regulators, oversee megabank bankruptcies. It is now up to the Trump administration to decide if it wants to set the stage for a repeat of the Lehman Brothers collapse in 2008.
