Money quote
Job Cohen is not just the mayor of Amsterdam, the brash and boisterous Dutch capital. He is also a calm, somewhat reserved Jewish intellectual who has made it his task to keep the peace between the city's Muslims and Christians.
Of course we wish him well, still: What do you want to bet he owns a horse named Rocinante?
