Thai Premier: “Southern insurgents not linked to al-Qaeda”

However, it’s a sure bet that they are motivated by the same jihadi doctrines including contempt and hatred for infidels. More on the Thai jihad (or “southern insurgency”). “Thai Premier Dismisses Links Between Al-Qaeda And Southern Insurgents,” by D. Arul Rajoo for Bernama, June 17 via JW


BANGKOK, June 17 (Bernama) — Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva Monday dismissed claims that insurgents in the restive southern provinces are linked to or trained by the Jemaah Islamiyah and Al-Qaeda. 

He said the previous and current Thai governments had investigated such claims but had not found any evidence to support the allegations…

Thai Muslims to gov’t: Money can’t buy you love

They said it. The conflict isn’t about poverty or development; it’s about imposing Islamic law, which is, of course, the aim of jihad. Indeed, Thailand’s own control of those provinces arose from attacks on Siam by the Malay sultanate amid the war between Siam and Burma.

BAN TALUBOH, Thailand, June 18 (Reuters) – In the rustic villages of Thailand’s Muslim south, Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva’s promise of large-scale development aid to tackle a brutal insurgency sounds all too familiar.

“Money can’t change what’s happening, no one can buy an end to the problems here,” said Yousuf, referring to a shadowy five-year rebellion that has claimed nearly 3,500 lives in the southernmost provinces of Yala, Pattani and Narathiwat.

“It’s the policies of Thai governments that are to blame,” he said in a village tea shop in Pattani. They have to understand that our way of life is different to other Thais and money won’t make a difference”.

Other villagers gave similar views on Abhisit’s three-year plan to win “hearts and minds” by pouring 54 billion baht ($1.58 billion) into the region bordering Malaysia. […]

“Each government is the same,” said Abdulloh, a villager. “They have never listened to the people. Our culture is a Malay culture and we follow the rules of Islam.”

Thai Jihadists Have Killed 115 Teachers in Five Years….

The jihad being waged in southern Thailand is the least followed but easily one of the deadliest Islamic insurgencies in the world……

BANGKOK (AP) — Muslim insurgents in southern Thailand must stop the “sickening trend” of attacking teachers, 115 of whom have been killed since the outbreak of the separatist rebellion five years ago, a human rights organization said Friday.

As part of a general recent escalation of violence, five teachers have been killed since the beginning of the new school term in May, the U.S.-based Human Rights Watch said in a statement.

The insurgency in Thailand’s three southernmost provinces of Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat has led to the deaths of more than 3,500 people, both Buddhist and Muslim, since early 2004.

  1. The muslims will not stop attacking teachers. Teachers represent intellectual independence and an ability to teach the critical evaluation of information. This runs counter to the islamist agenda and dogma of blind unquestioning obedience . Control of the education system is critical to islamist expansion plans. The UK , USA, and Europe should be vary wary of this fact.

  2. i did not like these activities and cultural .where is located of this picture . tell me country name?
