THAILAND Caves to Muslim demands for shari’a in the South 

As usual, Muslims are using violence to get their way. Instead of making life miserable for them, the Thais are appeasing them. They’ll be sorry.

The Muslim minority region in the South has been battled in violent insurgency since 2004.Muslim politicians and activists have called on successive Thai governments to introduce some new form of special regional governance saying that this could calm insurgent violence. During the election campaign, Yingluck Shinawatra, who visited the province has promised the southern region to become a special administrative zone .

The imaginary ‘cycle of poverty’

The intrepid mujahedin, gunning down teachers and forcing school closures in the entire province. Later on, they, along with analysts in the West, will complain about the region being poor and underdeveloped, and say it causes jihad. But this is a classic example of jihad causing poverty, and obliterating the means of improving one’s lot in life.

Jihad against teachers

Teachers working in state schools are frequently targeted because they are seen as a symbol of government authority in the south, where Islamic insurgents view the education system as an effort by Bangkok to impose Buddhist culture….

Abu Sayyaf beheaded, mutilated 5 of 7 fallen Marines, says military

“One of the severed heads has yet to be recovered,” a Marine officer overseeing the embalming procedure at the St. Peter’s Chapel here, told the INQUIRER on Friday.

The Marine, who asked not to be named for lack of authority to speak on the matter, said the sight of the slain soldiers reminded them of a similar incident in Basilan in 2007, where 10 Marine soldiers were beheaded by suspected Abu Sayyaf gunmen.

He said the embalmers, who attended to the cadavers, had a hard time doing their job because of the extent of the mutilation. “Some of them were hacked beyond recognition,” the Marine said.

The bodies of the soldiers were brought to the said funeral parlor around 1 a.m. Friday. But as of 9 a.m., the INQUIRER learned that embalmers managed to prepare only two of the bodies, those which bore only bullet wounds.

Commodore Armando Guzman, Naval Forces Western Mindanao commander, confirmed that Marines had indeed been beheaded.

“This is the saddest part. Explaining to their families how it happened. It’s not easy on our part,” Guzman said.

Guzman said the beheading was the work of barbarians. “It is not acceptable,” he said.

Col. Daniel Lucero, commander of the Army’s 103rd Infantry Brigade based in Lanao who spent time in Basilan in the past, said it was not unusual for the Abu Sayyaf to mutilate fallen soldiers.

“They behead soldiers to dehumanize our troops,” Lucero said, citing at least two incidents during his Basilan stint.


One thought on ““They behead soldiers to dehumanize our troops…””

  1. All wars result in barbarism – without exception. But….there is always something perpetrated by muslims in a theatre of war that goes beyond any sense of valour or dignity. The Islamo-fascists take delight in this sort of inhumane atrocity, treating human beings like animals. No doubt, they are influenced by the atrocities committed by Mohammed and see that as some kind of sick justification. Acts such as these are a window into the perverted mindset of the Islamo-fascists
