In Thailand’s South, Islam means Peace (of the grave)

Buddhist woman burned alive in Muslim south Thailand

A Buddhist woman was shot and burned alive in Thailand’s violence-torn Muslim-majority south on Wednesday, prompting angry protests in front of visiting army chief Sonthi Boonyaratglin.

Watcharaporn Boonmak, 26, was ambushed by gunmen as she rode her motorcycle through a Muslim village in Yala, one of the three southern provinces roiled by three years of separatist insurgency in which more than 2,000 people have been killed.

“She might have been shot in the stomach before they set fire to her and her motorcycle,” a Yala police officer, who asked to remain anonymous, told Reuters by telephone. 2007-04-11t073752z_01_ban201_rtridsp_2_thailand_articleimage.jpg


One of her relatives told Reuters that witnesses at the scene heard Watcharaporn, a garage clerk, screaming and crawling along the road for help but nobody dared respond for fear of reprisals.

Even by the standards of a conflict that has seen well over a dozen civilians beheaded, it was a shocking incident.

  1. Those Fucking Muslim bastards, why don’t our bast**d laden media highlight stuff like this? How come ore bastard laden media don’t have this highlighted on the television and written in the newspapers all over the west constantly? Because western media is mostly loony retarded left, and most of the right are gutless and spineless. This is what makes my blood boil when I think about the likes of Gavin wanker king. This is not on; there is cruel barbaric murder, displacement, and genocide all over the world because of them Islamic bastards, and our f**ktard media wont highlight this outrage that have being going on for far to long.

    The journalist in our media that ignore and don’t highlight the murder and genocide of poor innocent people all over the world by them Islamic savages, I spit in their faces and call them bas***ds. Thank god for the internet and sheik, Shiva, and the rest of the anti Islamic sites that educate people about this sick ideology.

    The story and image of that poor murdered women just goes to show anyone what mindless savages them Muslim bast**ds are, to kill a poor innocent harmless women in that horrible way. Islamic terrorists are a riff in Thailand, the Thai government must be only fighting them with rubber bands

  2. How was the USA’s fault? It wasn’t? Oh, that’s why we don’t see this and it’s not covered. Just like Darfur, Chad, Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Tibet, Iran’s Evin Prison, etc.

    What ever happened to their freedom of speech that these oh-so-know-it-all press would never give up (unless a Muslim asked them to)? (That is because they fear them. Do not let them fool you.)

  3. I pray for this woman and her family. How very tragic. This needs to stop, but it won’t. Not until we can come together and make that decision that we want it stopped. Until then, politicians will play us against one another. They just do not know. WE KNOW about them. Now we must organize…This has to stop.

  4. Rosemary, you say’ Now we must organize.’ OK. Let’s organize. I’ve been saying it for months. What’s the first thing on the agenda.

  5. shinagirl I’m with you! Just tell me how and when! I’ll be there.
