Anti-terror Protests in Egypt

As a response to the bombings in Sharm El Sheikh, there have been anti-terror marches in that city, as well as in Cairo. This is a welcome sign, but why don't we hear more about it from the Western media? Glenn Reynolds:
What's depressing is how little attention these demonstrations got from the media (you'll notice that most of the links above are to blog reports, not news stories). If any of these groups had blown something up -- or even just burned President Bush in effigy -- they probably would have made the evening news. But when Arabs and Muslims defy news-media typecasting, they seem to be ignored.
The Arab media has been reporting this story, though.
