    Buddhists fear Muslims in Southern Thailand


    Thai Jihad recap. "Buddhists Fear to Walk in Southern Thailand," by Lee Jay Walker in the Seoul Times, August 7:
    [...] The radical Sunni Islamic insurgency desires to spread fear, hatred, and an area where Buddhism is eradicated just like what happened in Afghanistan or what is happening in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in modern day Bangladesh. Therefore, the brutal Sunni Islamic insurgency is killing both moderate Muslims and Buddhists for different reasons. The reason for killing Buddhists is because certain elements within radical Sunni Islam do not believe in religious co-existence. Also, Buddhists are deemed to be infidels and within Islamic Sharia law they have no legal rights and conversion to Islam or death is sanctioned because they are not monotheists.
    Given this, southern Thailand resembles modern day Afghanistan and Somalia because in both these nations you have radical Sunni Islamists who will not tolerate even one single Christian church or Buddhist temple. Therefore, the slaughter of Buddhists in southern Thailand is following a similar pattern of past and current history and the current anti-Buddhist onslaught in southern Thailand is reaching new heights.


    At the same time moderate Muslims are being killed by radical Sunni Islamic fanatics. Given this, Muslim teachers, administration workers, or anyone deemed to be working with the government of Thailand is liable to face the threat of death. This fear is real and the methodology of killing is intended to spread fear to all who oppose the Islamization of southern Thailand.


    The dream of radical Sunni Islamists in southern Thailand is to have a land with no Buddhists and to create an Islamic Sharia state. Therefore, the usual beheadings of innocents is deemed to be justified on the grounds that non-Muslims are infidels in accordance with the Koran and Hadiths.


    This applies to the Koran for 9:29 states “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the last day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and his apostle nor acknowledge the religion of truth of the people of the Book (Jews and Christians) until they pay jizya (tax on non-Muslims) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued.”

    Verse 9:73 in the Koran also states “O Prophet! Strive hard (wage war) against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites and be firm against them. Their abode is Hell, - an evil refuge indeed.” While the Hadith 9:4 says "Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection."


    It is clear that these sayings in both the Koran and Hadiths are still potent today because radical Islamists are spreading mayhem in many nations and this also applies to nations with small minorities. After all, Christians have been burnt alive in Pakistan despite being a small minority and several Christian leaders were beheaded recently in northern Nigeria in order to intimidate the sizeable Christian population in northern Nigeria....

    History and present circumstances have shown us that muslims can never live with harmony with other communities.The communal brotherhood with muslim is myth and temprary .After some time muslims just revert to their orthodox islamic teaching and start destroying other religions and liberal muslims.

    We reap, what we shall sow? Love begets love, hate begets hate! Radical Muslims are on a self-destruct mode. Its only a matter of time when true Muslims will come forward and stem their cancerous growth...

    Dear followers of preachers of tolerance and human values, let us criticize the brain washed and misguided muslims but not Islam in general. Unfortunately fanatics are viewed as heroes by the brain washed folks. Islam is truly a path of brotherhood as explained by the great Prophet Mohammad. Unfortunately as per the saying "A few spoil the whole" many mulsims have been influenced by the hatred spread by a few fanatics. If the brainwashed muslims stop listening to these self styled fanatic and satanic saints and follow their Holy Quran in its true and unedited form, they will start indulging in love and peace missions. I really wonder why do people listen to fake satanic saints instead of following the real teachings of their prophet!

    There are several instances of the great Prophet Mohammad paying homage to Jews who lost their lives during his lifetime. I wonder how could such a prophet's teachings be misinterpreted to call every non muslim a "*****" (Infidel)? This could be the menace of the kings or the clergy who started calling all those infidels that refused to bow before their false authority.
