Four Buddhists shot dead in unrest ( Religion of Peace in Thailand )
The Australian ^ | 27sep06 | correspondents in Thailand

Posted on 09/27/2006 11:02:00 AM PDT by george76

Islamic militants today shot dead four Buddhists in two separate attacks in Thailand's mainly Muslim south, where an insurgency has raged for more than two years...

In one attack, two teenagers in Islamic students' dress and riding a motorcycle, shot and killed three Buddhists in Yala...

“The militants exploited the fact that the men were shopping at a grocery store and could not defend themselves, even though they had a gun,” police Colonel Somsak Wannawak said.

Earlier a militant shot dead a Buddhist man in Pattani province while he was riding a bus...

More than 1400 people have died in the conflict in Thailand's far south since early 2004.

The violence has been blamed on Malay separatism, religious extremism and organised crime in the border region.

No mention of GWB, the GWoT or Iraq?

The violence has been blamed on Malay separatism, religious extremism and organised crime in the border region.

Or, perhaps, the violence and evil of Islam, the Koran, and the fantasy that is "Mohammad". It's us or them on this planet.

"There have been hopes the Muslim army chief who led the coup, General Sonthi Boonyaratglin, may be able to ease the unrest."

Oh yes, General Boonyaratglin is a Muslim and Islam is the religion of peace, so he should be able to ease the unrest and have things back to normal in no time at all.

Ah, the religion of peace. Go pray with your head up your neighbor's xxx, yell and moan "death to the unbelievers", and go home in peace, knowing that you have carried out the tenets of your peaceful religion.

THEY ARE HOPING A MUSLIM WILL STOP THE VIOLENCE! WHAT ARE THEY SMOKING? THIS SAYS IT ALL:

"There have been hopes the Muslim army chief who led the coup, General Sonthi Boonyaratglin, may be able to ease the unrest."
