Egyptian paper published Danish Mohammed cartoons months ago

Linked by such worthies as Little Green Footballs and Instapundit, Sandmonkey has the nail in the proverbial coffin of the "outrage" the Muslim community is showing over the publications of those 12 Mohammed cartoons. Listen to this:

::::::::Freedom For Egyptians reminded me why the cartoons looked so familiar to me: they were actually printed in the Egyptian Newspaper Al Fagr back in October 2005. I repeat, October 2005, during Ramadan, for all the egyptian muslim population to see, and not a single squeak of outrage was present.::::::::

He's got the scans of the paper as it was published that clearly show the cartoons. The entire "outrage" crap is just that: crap. It's Islamofascist theater performed as a propaganda ploy.

With this revelation, every American media outlet should immediately report on the previous publication and display these cartoons for all the American public to see so they can judge for themselves if they were worth the lives they've cost. If the cartoons were OK for a major Egyptian newspaper to publish in Cairo, then everyone on the planet has the right to do exactly that. In keeping with this viewpoint, I present this link to Michelle Malkin's site where you can view those images in their entirety. Alternatively, click this gallery below and go to Human Events Online.
