Roadside bomb kills 3 in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand

* Tiny bits of truth in otherwise skewed reporting: “un-Islamic values” turn Muslims into teacher killers and school-burners, just like in Afghanistan and in Paki-land: we’re all  Taliban now!

Police said the militants believed the government was trying to indoctrinate students with un-Islamic values at state schools, making teachers prime targets of the violence.

 

A Thai military spokesman said a roadside bomb in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand killed three policemen and wounded one other on Thursday.

The military spokesman said the police officers were returning to their base after they had escorted teachers to school when the 15-kilogram bomb went off in Pattani, one of three southernmost provinces where an Islamist insurgency has been going on since early 2004.

Local television pictures showed wounded policeman being rushed into hospital for treatment.

School teachers are usually escorted to work and back by the security forces.

No one was arrested or claimed responsibility for the attack.

One thought on “Religion of Peace Hits Thailand's "Restive South" Again”

  1. Just for fun, I’ll rewrite the headline: “Jihadists kill 3 with roadside bomb in S Thailand”. Or alternatively – “S Thailand: Jihadists kill 3 non-Muslims with roadside bomb”.

    And here are some errata for the article itself.

    For “insurgency-plagued”, read “jihad-wracked”.

    For the clause “where an Islamist insurgency has been going on since early 2004”, read “where Muslims have stepped up the Jihad since early 2004”.

    For ‘militants’ read ‘Jihadists’, or alternatively, “Muslim thugs”.
