There’s a surge! A surge in violence! They call it jihad but Â don’t mention it: it might make the Muslims angry!
- 11 dead as military battles misunderstanders of IslamÂ (full post below the fold)
Jihad in Thailand:
Interesting that these devout Muslims have been sticking to what they claim is their neck of the woods. I would have expected them to blow up tourist resorts in Pukhet and Pattaya, but for some reason they are (still) staying away.
There is a “surge in violence” in Thailand since Ramadan began. Somehow these Misunderstanders of Islam didn’t get the memo thatÂ Ramadan is a time to “reconcile differences and seek peace.”Â And oddly enough, they misunderstand Islam and Ramadan in exactly the same way as theÂ Muslims in BulgariaÂ who somehow got the crazy idea that “Ramadan is a month of holy war and death for Allah. It is a month for fighting the enemies of Allah and God’s messenger, the Jews and their American facilitators.” What an odd coincidence!

Pamela has more on theÂ Jihad in Thailand
Boko Haram has killed hundreds this year in its campaign to carve out an Islamic state in Nigeria, whose population is split evenly between Christians and Muslims.
Not only does Obama demand that we “respect it,” he refuses to designate the genocidal Muslim group, Boko Haram (“books bad” or Western Education is sinful), a terrorist organization, no matter how many they slaughter in the name of Islam.
Indo Koranimals Blame Police For Raids
Not to worry: its only a ‘tiny minority of excremists’- we all know that!
The country’s self-appointed morality police says they would rather be praying and worshiping during Ramadan, instead of raiding restaurants and nightclubs, if only the National Police did its job.
“We ask the [police and public order agency] to strictly enforce the law and we’ll only provide information,” Islamic Defenders Front (FPI) Jakarta chapter chairman Salim Alatas said according to Tempo.co, after meeting with the National Police on Thursday.
Once again the media characterizes a jihad attack and a defensive response as a “clash,” as if both sides were morally equivalent. One must imagine the Philippine army descending without warning upon peaceful, innocent Muslims, weakened from Ramadan fasting — and when you do imagine that, you’ve understood the perspective of the mainstream media. “Clash with al Qaeda linked group kills 11 in Philippines,” fromAFP, July 26 (thanks to JW):
MANILA: Philippine forces clashed with Muslim extremists on a southern island Thursday, leaving seven soldiers and four militants dead, the military said.Elite rangers battled members of the al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf group on the troubled southern island of Basilan, with three soldiers and two insurgents also wounded in the clash.
“Firefight is ongoing as of this report,” the military statement said.
It was the latest in a series of deadly clashes in the heavily-forested island of Basilan, a stronghold of the Abu Sayyaf.
The group was founded in the 1990s with seed money from al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
