An elderly Buddhist man has been beheaded and two other Buddhist men shot dead by suspected Islamic insurgents in separate attacks in Thailand's southern provinces, police said today.
The grisly death of 66-year-old Song Fangpetch, whose headless body was found early this morning in Pattani province's Mayo district, brings to 15 the number of people decapitated in 21 months of unrest.
Song was attacked while taking his cattle to a field in nearby Panare district and a note left on his body, police said.
"He was slashed with a sharp knife probably at 6:00 am and people found his body at 7:00 am," Colonel Wanchai Piemsomboon superintendent of Mayo police said.
"We also found note written in Thai saying 'as long as you continue to kill innocent people, we will kill your innocent people'."
"We are searching for his head now," Colonel Wanchai added.
In neighbouring Narathiwat province this morning, two gunmen on a motorcycle shot Saroj Sopin, 43, twice as he rode his motorcycle through his village in Sungai Padi district.
Saroj worked for the provincial electricity authority whose staff are often targeted by Islamic militants, Colonel Term Inthasara, superintendent of Sungai Padi said.
Separately, Nathawut Sujit, 46, a fruit trader from Bangkok, was shot dead yesterday evening in Salo village of Ruso district in Narathiwat province by two suspected Islamic gunmen while he was buying fruit, police said.
Nearly 1000 people have been killed since January 2004 in increasingly deadly unrest in Thailand's Muslim-majority south along the Malaysian border.
Analysts and authorities say the almost daily shootings, bombings and arson attacks in the southern provinces are a result of a mix of Islamic separatists, organised criminals and local corruption.
While Thailand is mainly Buddhist, most of the population in the southern provinces are ethnic Malay, who feel a close affinity to Malays in neighbouring Malaysia.
Islam - the religion of peace.....
People thoughout the world should rejoice I'm not the U.S. president. There would not be an islamic 'holy site' standing anywhere.
All muslims would be required to wear pigskin.
I am speechless.
The headless bodies of the innocent is the calling-card of Islam. I cringe each time I hear our leadership in Washington say that a few bad people are 'hijacking' a 'religion of peace'.
It's a damn shame that the world is pussy-footing around with Islam instead of taking this plague against mankind seriously. Countries who let these people in to dwell amongst them are rueing the day they opened their doors to them.
And clown shoes for easy of round up (laughs too).
Definition of insurgent: Member of a political party who rebels against established leadership
I hardly think that the Buddhist religion is the established leadership. And I find it hard to believe that the Islamfascists are a political party.
How did you get AlKatie Quaranic's Today show talking points? Oh yeah... It's always been the same tired old song and dance, since day one..
Communism could work if we try it just one more time....Why we'll even use Islamonazis to kill off the Christians, then world domination will be really easy. Islam Is Lame!
In the true spirit of Mohammad.
Thanks for the ping.
You are right. Islam that is to blame for making these animals do the things they do.
I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them. This is because they acted adversely to Allah and his messenger; and whoever acts adversely to Allah and his messenger - then surely Allah is severe in requitting (evil). This - taste it, and (know) that for the unblievers is the punishment of fire.
Bad, bad insurgent. Very bad insurgent.
Okay...coast is clear. Now we can tell the truth.
Nothing to see here, move along, nothing to see here.. Beheadings are just a part of life in the Modern World.. Get used to it. ..unless we STOP the IslamoTerrorists.
It's as if the West is afraid of Islam but actually the Western intelligentsia fears the death of its own assumptions and constructs about tolerance and the basic niceness of all the people in the world.
Beheading(and rape) is just a cultural peculiarity and thus must be tolerated. Actually it should not even be mentioned because noticing that it is different from some practices of other cultures betrays cultural bias and a lack of tolerance.
They didn't get the al-Queda memo about beheadings being bad PR.
No why would want to do that to a poor pig! More like Pigs should be made to wear Muslim skins!
