Egyptian blogger Sandmonkey comes up trumps - over to him for the full story:
Freedom For Egyptians reminded me why the cartoons looked so familiar to me: they were actually printed in the Egyptian Newspaper Al Fagr back in October 2005. I repeat, October 2005, during Ramadan, for all the egyptian muslim population to see, and not a single squeak of outrage was present. Al Fagr isn't a small newspaper either: it has respectable circulation in Egypt, since it's helmed by known Journalist Adel Hamoudah. Looking around in my house I found the copy of the newspaper, so I decided to scan it and present to all of you to see.
As you might expect, this story has spread like wildfire, resulting in Sandmonkey receiving a well deserved Instalanche.

In his own words:
Guess we will have to Boycott Egypt now as well, huh?
Heh. Good work!
