Katy Perry outrages Muslims with her latest video

I don't really care about Perry, whose reputation is questionable enough as it is, but the reaction to her latest music video is coming from the wrong people for the wrong reasons:
Miley Cyrus and Rihanna can take a deep breath, because controversy that often follows them has taken a turn and is now cracking down on Katy Perry.

The "I Kissed a Girl" singer's latest single, "Dark Horse," is sparking harsh reactions from the international Muslim community for disrespecting a symbol representing their God, Allah. [...]

Perry portrays an animated representation of Egyptian Queen Cleopatra, and she is seen using her powers to destroy those who oppose her. One character in the video is seen wearing a religious symbol around his neck, who she then zaps into a pile of sand, along with his pendant.

"At 01:15 into the video Dark Horse; a man is shown being burned, whilst wearing a pendant (also burned) forming the word 'Allah', which is the Arabic word for God," says the online petition.

The petition describes Perry as representing the opposite of Muslim values, and when she is easily able to destroy something representing god, it is a "portrayal of blasphemy."
Why do I get the feeling Perry's going to cave and have the video edited? I'm well aware of how poor most celebrities' grasp on these issues is.
