巴勒斯坦的另一场革命

马哈茂德·阿巴斯成功当选巴勒斯坦民族权力机构组织执委会主席,令人们欢欣鼓舞长达一周。也许这并不为过,但现在却是时候来头脑清醒地来确定一下巴勒斯坦人、以色列人、以及更为重要的阿拉伯世界当前面临的问题了。

要做出正确的确定,就必须承认此次选举绝非完美无瑕:哈马斯和伊斯兰圣战组织联合抵制选举;而为了保证对外联合阵线,法塔赫领导层紧急劝说与阿巴斯同为法塔赫成员的马尔万·巴尔古提,也是能对阿巴斯构成严重威胁的候选人,使其放弃参选。

此外,阿巴斯(也称阿布·马赞)成功将约十二个巴勒斯坦安全服务机构和民兵组织收之麾下,这一点也保证了他的胜利,尽管那些挥舞着枪支出现在阿巴斯集会上的武装人员游行队伍并非民主规范标准所提倡的。

    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.

    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.
