"Understanding the Beijing Consensus" by Alain Gresh

The decades of the Washington Consensus and its imposition of a liberal model of world trade and financial good behavour are over. What will replace it and which states will be the power-brokers? Does China offer a new model, when inequality there is growing, and it has recently subscribed to the neoliberal globalized economy? Analysis by Alain Gresh.

"Molten Lead" by Uri Avnery

The cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian Gaza did not collapse, because there was no real cease-fire to start with. The main requirement for any cease-fire in the Gaza Strip is the opening of the border crossings. There can be no life in Gaza without a steady flow of supplies. But the crossings were not opened, except for a few hours now and again. The blockade on land, on sea and in the air against a million and a half human beings is an act of war. Analysis by Uri Avnery.
