U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell walks with Jordan's King Abdullah II at the World Economic Forum at a resort on the Dead Sea on Sunday.

DEAD SEA RESORT, Jordan (CNN) -- The Arab world should be showing "a higher level of outrage" over the death of an American businessman whose beheading was posted on an Islamist Web site last week, U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell said Sunday.

I don't understand why you post news that are completely unrelated to your forum. I mean, we all know the 'news' sites, what's the point in copying and pasting this stuff?
Yup, I have been wondering the same thing myself regarding the silence in the Muslim world in the days that followed the slaughtering of Nick Berg. I am surprised that no Muslim cleric has publicly denounced this act of violence. Colin has a valid concern here.
What's really amazing is that Hezbollah and Hamas, both know militant groups, had a faster and more harsh condemnation of this horrendous act than any of the Arab governments.
