Crucifying and decapitating infidels

In his Cairo speech, President Obama quoted from the Qur'an as saying, "whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind; and whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind."

Mr. Obama failed to quote the entire verse. The rest of that verse says,
Our apostles brought them veritable proofs: yet many among them, even after that, did prodigious evil in the land. Those that make war against God and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land.
(In the quote above "His apostle" is a reference to Muhammad).

Read how Muhammad actually took a precept from Rabbinic Judaism on the value of human life, and twisted it in to an argument for crucifying or decapitating the "infidel."
