Where is the Media Outrage?

Michelle Malkin has a picture and link to a story about some Muslims in India having a little boy pee on our Flag, Old Glory.

Perhaps we should be rioting here in the US and demanding justice for the desecration of one of our symbols. How many people are going to die here in the US because we can't control ourselves, riot, and end up murdering innocent people? The answer is none because we know how to be civilized. We understand what the value of a symbol is, as opposed to the value of a human life. We also understand that each person has freedom and that just because one person uses his freedom to desecrate/mock another's symbol, we don't have to have a fit and kill others.

Michelle also has links to other recent flag desecrations by the same sort of people. Why don't we hear about any of this in the MSM?

And what about when Islamic fanatists were holed up in the Church of the Nativity in Jerusalem and used the Bible as toilet paper? Where was the outrage then?
