和平缔造者特朗普?

马德里—半个世纪前,以色列赢得对阿拉伯邻国的六日战争,占领了从加沙地带到约旦河西岸的领土——也建立了其对数百万巴勒斯坦人的统治。在此后的几十年里,巴勒斯坦人用尽手段想要摆脱以色列的压迫式占领——从和平示威,到武装冲突和国际外交调解——但一无所获。如今,他们要尝试新的策略:与美国总统特朗普谈判。

1967年以来的每一位美国总统都试图解决以巴冲突,其中,克林顿所提出的和平协议条件最为周全合理,这是每一位外国政治家都承认的事实。但特朗普自信地宣布他将“达成”一个协定,并相信这个协定“不像人们想的那么难。”

不消说,并不是每个人都像特朗普那么乐观。以色列人和巴勒斯坦人基本上已经放弃了还能存在双方都可接受的方案的希望。但到目前为止,两国方案所隐含的永久内战的幽灵让相关行动方都不敢完全放弃。事实上,巴勒斯坦人和以色列左翼似乎突然之间成为特朗普的“迷弟迷妹”,尽管这与其说意味着真正的突破机会,不如说体现了他们的绝望。

    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.
