Blogging the Qur'an: Sura 6, "Cattle," verses 84-165

Robert Spencer has the installment here.

This caught my eye:

Muhammad explained that the "blood of a Muslim…cannot be shed except in three cases: in Qisas [retaliation] for murder, a married person who commits illegal sexual intercourse and the one who reverts from Islam (apostate) and leaves the Muslims." So adultery, apostasy and revenge are the only justifications for taking a life.

One wonders what cases allow for the shedding of non-Muslim blood...

There's more - read the rest.
