We Muslims , as an ummah, should not be overly concerned over the recent utube misrepresentation of our Prophet. These clowns in the West do not have a future that we all have. Instead we should feel sorry and pity them for being lost sheep.
We are like a huge supertanker, moving on and on, albeit a wee bit slow about changing direction, but the 'captain' is still very much in charge, and his 'compass' is in good working order.
We still have our 'BOOK' [ http://tafseerkoran.blogspot.com/ ] and the SOP's are still there very much intact while the rest of the world are already in their 'dinghies' and 'safety boats' rolling about in the sea without 'directions'.
We Muslims are enjoined, along with the rest of humanity, to 'read' the two great Books of Revelation and Creation. We still have the first Book, 100 % fully intact, while the rest of humanity have had theirs pretty much adulterated and manipulated several times over, beyond recognition. Early Muslims from the 7th century to the 14th gained much ground because they followed the precepts of the Book of Revelation and they were in the forefront 'reading' the Book of Creation. We present day Muslims need to reassert our confidence in the former and find our way back with the latter. A monumental task but something 'dowable' with the proviso we stop aping the West and follow their dictates .
PR-wise, we may think we are losing ground because we do not have CNN, BBC, CNBC, Aljazira, Hollywood and all that jazz. But by Allah we have the internet, utube etc and etc ! With a wee bit of luck, in due process, we may even be able to bring back those very lost souls and clowns back to 'fitrah'.
Just look at the Arab Spring ! Despite very heavy European and American involvement, things are not going in the direction they would like it to be.
' Cest Dieu Qui Direct ' , it is human to plan, Allah Direct.
This is the age of connectivity and globalization, and we better make full use of it.
Allah, insyaallah, is behind us !
This seem rather a simplistic way of my looking at things.
TJ Winter and Yahya Rhodus look at the issue at a higher scholastic level and plane :
