通往和平的单边道路

再接下来的三个星期里,以色列军队会有一些前所未有的行动:它将会把9000名以色列人从其家园撤出—必要的时候甚至动用武力—而不是保卫国家不受外部敌人或恐怖主义的袭击。

以色列的单方面撤离是一种深刻的政治转变的结果。这种转变是由总理沙龙自2003年以来所实行政策中反映出的两种颇为矛盾的信念造成的:首先,美国所制定的“路线图”已经走进了死胡同;其次,目前的局势难以维持。当然,在沙龙看来,生活在加沙地带120万巴勒斯坦人中的9000犹太定居者是没有前途的。所以,在没有进行谈判的情况下,单方面的撤离是通向平息事态和稳定大局的唯一有效步骤。

这一政策使以色列出现了深刻的分化:定居者们-大多但不完全是教徒-感到被“定居点之父”,沙龙背叛。直到现在,以色列的左翼,不论有多勉强,才认识到沙龙的新实用主义可能是通往正确方向的第一步。正如戴高乐之于阿尔及利亚,沙龙对以色列的政治重新洗牌。

    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.
