Experten om risken för inbördeskrig efter mordförsöket på Trump

Experten om risken för inbördeskrig efter mordförsöket på Trump

På måndagen inleds Republikanernas konvent i Milwaukee i Wisconsin. Där väntas en rad republikanska profiler äntra scenen. Hur deras framtoning är kan bli avgörande för den politiska debatten framåt. Det anser Frida Stranne, doktor i freds- och konfliktkunskap tillika USA-expert. – Vad de säger och hur de använder det här förfärliga dådet mot Trump kommer att vara väldigt viktigt för den politiska tongången och retoriken framåt. Vi har väldigt formativa dagar framför oss skulle jag säga, säger Frida Stranne till TV4 Nyheterna. Hårda tongångar Ett hårdare tonläge från politiskt håll kan också leda till ökade klyftor bland det amerikanska folket anser Frida Stranne, som beskriver att det redan är spänningar och konflikter mellan grupper i exempelvis abortfrågan, gränspolitiken och kriget mellan Israel och Hamas. – Allt detta sammantaget och många andra frågor gör att risken för politisk våld eskalerar eftersom tongångarna är så hårda och också väldigt ofta handlar om existentiella hot, alltså att man känner sig rädd för vad som kan hända om fel kandidat vinner, säger Frida Stranne och fortsätter: – Det är inte bara en politisk polarisering som bygger på att man har lite olika uppfattningar i sakfrågor, utan man känner sig verkligen hotad av varandra i USA, säger Frida Stranne. ”Modern form av inbördesoroligheter” Flera bedömare har ansett att lördagens mordförsök på ex-president Donald Trump, där ytterligare två skadades och en dog, kan innebära att landet står på gränsen till ett inbördeskrig. Enligt Frida Stranne visar viss forskning på att ett inbördeskrig kan vara nära. Dock beskriver hon att det inte är talan om nord- mot sydstaterna, som det var på 1860-talet.

– Det handlar mer om en modern form av inbördesoroligheter där olika våldsamma sammandrabbningar skulle kunna hända och splittra USA mer och mer och få olika politiska och ekonomiska konsekvenser, säger Frida Stranne.

Minst 70 döda i attack mot Gaza

Minst 70 döda i attack mot Gaza

Det Hamaskontrollerade palestinska hälsodepartementet fördömer i ett uttalande attacken som de kallar en "brutal massaker". Attacken riktades mot Hamasledaren Mohammed Deif och en annan Hamasledare som enligt uppgifter ska ha befunnit sig i en byggnad i området, men inte direkt i lägret, rapporterar Times of Israel. Tidningen skriver också att den israeliska armén bekräftar att Deif var måltavlan. Många av de skadade har tagits till Nassersjukhuset i södra Gaza som sedan tidigare befinner sig på bristningsgränsen. Nyhetsbyrån AP:s journalister på plats på Nassersjukhuset räknar till fler än 40 kroppar på sjukhuset och vittnen berättar om en attack i flera omgångar. Tidigare i veckan dödades 25 personer och 50 skadades mot en attack mot en skola i samma stad, enligt vårdmyndigheter i den Hamaskontrollerade landremsan.

Sverige inte lika stort mål för terror längre

Sverige inte lika stort mål för terror längre

Den svenska terrorhotnivån ligger sedan augusti förra året på en fyra på en femgradig skala. Höjningen innebar att hotnivån gick från ”förhöjt hot” till ”högt hot”, och gjordes bland annat mot bakgrund av koranbränningarna. Men det senaste halvåret har Sverige inte varit lika utpekat, uppger Nationellt centrum för terrorbedömning vars chef Ahn-Zha Hagström utvecklar för Dagens Nyheter: – Nu är Sverige med i Nato, och de val som skulle ske i de länder som var mest aggressiva när det gäller bilden av Sverige har genomförts. Vår bedömning är att det här är ett mycket bra exempel på att terrorism äger rum i en geopolitisk kontext. Samtidigt har världsläget förändrats sedan Hamas terrordåd i Israel den 7 oktober och Israels krig mot Hamas, säger Hagström till tidningen. Ryska hybridhoten står fast Vidare verkar det militära hotet mot Sverige ha minskat efter Natointrädet. De hybrida och icke-linjära hoten från Ryssland står dock fast. – De är betydligt mer påtagliga. De har ökat och vår bedömning är att de kan fortsätta öka, säger Thomas Nilsson, chef för Militära underrättelsetjänsten, till DN. Han säger att det ligger i Rysslands intresse att försöka påverka vilken roll Sverige spelar i Nato, och försöka splittra. – Inte minst från rysk sida så vill man nog inte ha den här eniga sammanhållningen som man kan se i EU och Nato, säger Thomas Nilsson.

Should Israel Ransom Hostages? (Updated)

When we first released an episode on captured soldiers, back in August 2023, we had no idea that we were mere months away from the worst hostage crisis Israel had ever experienced.  On October 7, 2023, Hamas murdered 1,200 people – mostly civilians – and dragged another 240 to Gaza, plunging Israel into a nightmare. Hamas did not discriminate. They took babies as young as 9 months, elderly people well into their 80s, and everyone in between. Some of those 240 hostages have been rescued or released. Some were murdered in captivity. Three were killed mistakenly by “friendly fire.” But as of December 2023, 129 remain in Gaza, their fates and welfare unknown. And the questions we raised back in August remain more relevant than ever.  ~~~~   Sources: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1tO4xtCQdNDbcO3THe1elsiNrvREOuG6FjD3gcq5hDnA/edit?usp=sharing

The conflict in Israel and Palestine predates even the creation of the state of Israel in 1948. This episode explores the complicated history of Israel and Palestine, chronicling the ancient history of the temples in Jerusalem, to the Crusades, to the settlement of the land by Arabs almost 1,000 years ago, and to the more recent wars of 1948, 1967, the Intifadas, and the state of the conflict in present day.
