欧洲的新犹太问题

纽约—1936年3月,波兰色姆(议会下院)几乎成功地将犹太屠宰方式规定为非法。最后靠着波兰宪法才避免了完全禁止。如果立法者得逞,320万波兰犹太人中将有很多吃不到肉。

几天前,这一过去的幽灵再一次回到了色姆,一些议员拒绝接受意在保证宗教屠宰合法的政府法案。就连许多法案支持者(包括总理图斯克)也被质疑没有捍卫宗教少数派的权利,而是站在了保护肉联业就业的一方。

投票结果是对波兰宪法第53条宗教自由规定的挑衅,宪法说“所有人的信仰和宗教自由都应该得到保护”,并特别规定“宗教表演仪式”受到保护。这也是对波兰犹太社会的侮辱,一千多年来,犹太人一直是波兰社会的组成部分,尽管经受过大屠杀的苦难,但在过去二十年中迎来了令人瞩目的复兴。事实上,波兰有着丰富的犹太传统和历史,共产主义倒台后,这里被认为拥有最适合犹太人复兴的土壤。

    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.
