特朗普的巴勒斯坦困境

拉马拉—本周,美国总统特朗普与以色列总理内塔尼亚胡举行了特朗普上任以来的第一次会晤。这次会晤的焦点应该是他们对于撤销伊朗核协议的共同渴望。但以色列国会关于约旦河西岸占领区定居点和前哨站的追溯立法可能意味着特朗普和内塔尼亚胡必须改变重点。他们必须谈一谈巴勒斯坦问题。

口头上,特朗普是亲以色列的。12月,他抨击时任总统奥巴马在联合国安理会谴责以色列非法定居点建设的提案上投了弃权票,没有行使否决权。

但特朗普政府希望暂缓就以巴冲突做出明确表态——特别是对以色列在占领区扩建定居点的问题——等特朗普与内塔尼亚胡第一次会晤以后再说。以色列表示这不可能——特朗普就职后几天,以色列就宣布了新的定居点建设计划,迫使美国新总统承认以色列的计划“无助于”和平进程。

    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.
