“Missionary bandits” at work:
BANGKOK, Feb 2 (Reuters) – Suspected Muslim rebels killed and then decapitated two Thai paramilitary rangers on Monday in the Muslim-majority far south, which has been plagued by five years of separatist unrest, police said.Â
“They were both shot dead while they were riding out of the village and were then decapitated,” a policeman, who did not wish to be identified, told Reuters.
The head of one of the soldiers, a Muslim, was removed from the scene, while that of his Buddhist colleague was burnt along with his body and motorbike, the officer said.
There was no claim of responsibility, a feature common to all the attacks that have claimed more than3,000 livesÂ in Thailand’s four southernmost provinces since 2003.
* Al Reuters makes apologies for the jihad:
The region abutting the Malaysian border was a Muslim sultanate until annexed by predominantly Buddhist Bangkok a century ago. Since then it, has been plagued by intermittent unret.
The majority of the population are Muslim and Malay-speaking, and have few links to the rest of Thailand.
* Absolute BS!Â I know that part of the world very well. In the seventies I often travelled to the south of Thailand and I often watched how the students in the schools sang the national anthem, raised the flag and felt totally Thai. The distortion by the MSM is revolting. The idea that they are Malay speaking is absurd, they have always spoken Thai. Yes, perhaps they also speak a Malay dialect, but that is not an official language.Â This is just another Reuters apology to allow another land grab by the RoP.Â
The violence has ranged from drive-by shootings and bombings or beheadings, and appears toÂ target both Buddhist and Muslims associated with the Thai state. Police, soldiers, government officials and teachers are frequent victims…
The former infidels, the latter apostates — both enemies to jihadis
* Disgusting. Appeasement and pandering along with abject cowardice will bring about our demise.
