The Arab Spring takeover of Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood has run amok, with reports from several different media agencies that the radical Muslims have begun crucifying opponents of the newly installed President Mohammed Morsi. . . .
Raymond Ibrahim, a fellow with the Middle East Forum and the Investigative Project on Terrorisim, . . . says the victims can be anyone, including Christians . . . .
Ibrahim said extra brutality is reserved for Christians, but the crucifixions are because of Islamic doctrine and are required by the Quran. . . .
Center for Security Policy Senior Fellow Clare Lopez cited chapter and verse from the Quran to explain crucifixions are not simply normal for Islam, they're demanded.
"Crucifixion is a hadd punishment, stipulated in the Quran, Sura 5:33, and therefore an obligatory part of Shariah," Lopez said.
