Where is the Outrage?

perhaps my question is not in the proper place on Daniel Pipes' website, but to semi quote Arthur Miller in his play "Death of a Salesman" his character of Willie Loman's wife tells his sons upon Willie's death "THAT ATTENTION MUST BE PAID". i believe in was on Yahoo, there was a story about a Christian Clergyman in a moslem country who was murdered by having his head cut off, while villagers stood around and cheered, laughed and actually took photos of the grusome event. i haven't seen any reaction to this terrible story. did it actually happen? Yahoo did have a picture of the villagers enjoying their day of looking on at this bloody act. i haven't seen or heard of any reaction here in the US or any other western country. are we so used to these disgusting actions, that we developed a some type of callus on our souls, that doesn't permit us to react to these acts that belong in a much earlier century then the times we now live in? can these acts continue without some kind of punishment? we've recently seen a Brittish soldier butchered in the street and don't forget reporter Daniel Pearl. how long will these wanton acts of bloody murder continue? WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE?
