1966 “Communist China’s leaders have succeeded in sowing confusion in the West over just how big a threat Peking poses today,” reported Newsweek. Amid the confusion surrounding the Asian power’s military might and international intentions, scholars and subject matter experts were reduced to conjecture and the words of China’s illustrious military strategist and philosopher Sun Tzu (544 to 496 B.C.), who is credited with writing The Art of War: “Offer the enemy bait to lure him; feign disorder and strike him.” 1971In a cover story that echoes current events, some American Jews were struggling with an “erosion of support for the Israeli cause.” Newsweek reported on a new crisis of spirituality: whether to embrace balance and tolerance—two of the most “cherished Jewish virtues of all”—or their own ethnic…

voter suppression

And you think politics in America are polarized. A man turns on supporters of Atiku Abubakar, a member of Nigeria’s People’s Democratic Party, at a final PDP rally in Ribadu Square on February 14, two days before Africa’s most populous country heads to the polls. President Muhammadu Buhari, of the All Progressives Congress party, is seeking to win a second four-year term against Abubakar, the former vice president, in a very close race. ■…

new beginning

An indigenous Mexican takes part in a ceremony of purification at the Zócalo Public Square on February 10. Indigenous people, who are concentrated largely in the poor states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, make up about 10 percent of the country’s population. Newly elected President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has pledged to give “special attention” to them. “It is a disgrace that our original communities live with oppression and racism, with poverty and marginalization,” he said in his inaugural address in December. ■…

listening—for a change

A WHITE MAN WALKS INTO A BAR. PERHAPS HE’S wearing a “Make America great again” cap or a Red Sox T-shirt or a crucifix. Maybe he has a tattoo sleeve or a nose ring or a yarmulke. Whatever the signifiers, you consciously, or subconsciously, have decided he is one of Us or one of Them.According to researchers humans are hard-wired for tribalism. Labeling is biological. Minorities have put up with it since America’s founding, of course, but, as Irshad Manji argues in her new book, Don’t Label Me (St. Martin’s), the “loathed white guy” isn’t the only one stuffing others into boxes now. Everyone is at it, even those who, like Manji, champion diversity. “Well before Trump,” says the author, “so-called progressives were labeling swaths of Americans as racists…

trump card

UNDER NORMAL CIRCUMSTANCES, the re-election of Benjamin Netanyahu to yet another term as prime minister would be a no-brainer.The Israeli economy is humming on all four cylinders; unemployment is low; and over the past 15 years, Israel has become one of the world’s leading technology powerhouses. And it should be noted that the country’s security situation has been remarkably quiet—at least by Israeli standards. Far from becoming a pariah, Israel has diplomatic relations with more countries than ever before.Even so, Netanyahu may not be sleeping soundly. In February, his Likud party held primaries. Although the prime minister remains as popular as ever, when party members voted, they paid almost no attention to Netanyahu’s wishes. They propelled one of his archrivals, former Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar, close to the top…
