Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Note the subtle point that Ratzinger implies that the Sura 2 was composed by Mohammed and influenced by his political situation, while Juan Cole calls it "revealed". So, was the Bible composed or revealed?

That's what happens when you do exegesis of the Quran through medieval Christian polemics.
