Dear Dr Pipes:

Your reader rooshmishgaan extolled the virtues of Quran in her letter. She invited us to read the Quran and ask a Muslim scholar or follower any questions that we have. I take Sister rooshmishgaan's challenge. I have read the oft-quoted Q5:32 and not-so-often-quoted Q5:33 many times in many different English translations of quran. To me (combined) they look very cruel and unfair to me.

Can sister rooshmishgaan explain these two verse to us in full detail.

Submitting....
