It's fitting on a Sunday to reflect on the life, teachings and death of Jesus Christ, who was nailed to a cross for his teachings.  It's also instructive to look to the Middle East, where Islam continues this brutal practice.  From World Net Daily
A Sky News Arabic correspondent in Cairo confirmed that protestors belonging to the Muslim Brotherhood crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others.
In fairness I can only find one other link supporting this story, and it seems that they quote from the same source. However, I'm not seeing a lot of news out of Egypt. The ruling party seems to have clamped down on reporting, so this might be a good report, or it might be fabricated. However, nailing someone naked to a tree is a particularly horrific punishment.
Finally, it is telling that only a few months ago, and for the first time in Egypt’s modern history, an Egyptian MP proposed to institutionalize Sharia’s most draconian punishments—including crucifixion. In short, under the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the bottle has been uncorked and the Islamic Genie set loose. Expect much worse to come.
Indeed. If there was ever a time for the Copts to leave Egypt, it seems that the time has come.
