The Avant-Garde of the Apocalypse

One I had almost completely missed: Theodore Dalrymple reviews Buruma's Murder in Amsterdam: The Death of Theo Van Gogh and the Limits of Tolerance and takes some time to shine his own light on the situation in the Netherlands, because:
[B]oth Holland and Belgium are now very important, not perhaps in the statistical sense, but in a symbolic sense, since both experience with particular acuteness pan-European problems
It's both a nice review and a collection of a few sharp observations from an outsider that seems to be able to see the forest for the trees, which we Dutch have considerable more trouble with, seeing as we are right in the middle of this particular forest.
