Muslim outrage at Denmark

The image of Mohammed appeared in a Danish publication in a satirical manner a few days ago. Islam forbids images of the Prophet Mohammed. The outrage in the Arab world was instantaneous and universal. Sales of Danish goods in all Arab countries fell to zero.

There were demonstrations in the streets and the Arab people were united in their condemnation of Denmark. They have sworn to boycott anything Danish.

Wouldn't it have been great to see such widespread and passionate outrage against the barbarism of Muslim fanatics like al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden? Mainstream Muslims say they reject terrorism but their response has ranged from tepid to none - certainly a stark contrast to the outrage against one Danish publication that printed an image of Mohammed.

It would seem to me that Arab national priorities need to be re-examined

Maybe it's just me.
