“Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks…” (Qur’an 47:4). “Thai Buddhist beheaded in south,” from the BBC, with thanks to Susan:
The situation is tense in Thailand’s southern provinces
A Buddhist man has been found beheaded in the majority Muslim province of Pattani in southern Thailand.
A note found next to the man’s head claimed the murder was carried out in response to last week’s arrest of a prominent Muslim student leader.
It was the fifth decapitation in a conflict that has claimed more than 700 lives in the past 18 months.
The note next to the severed head of retired teacher Kamol Chuneth carried a message obviously intended for police.
The note said that the authorities had arrested the wrong man.
