Will the Islamophobia never end?
“Insurgents in southern Thailand burn teacher alive,” from Deutsche Presse Agentur, with thanks to Doc Washburn:
Bangkok – Insurgents shot a school director Friday afternoon in southern Thailand then set his vehicle on fire killing him in the flames, the English-language Bangkok Post newspaper website reported.
Police said the director of a school in Pattani province, 750 kilometres south of Bangkok, was shot in his pickup truck while driving out of school.
He was wounded but not killed in the shooting before insurgents set his pickup truck on fire. He was burned alive inside the truck.
Thailand’s three predominately Muslim southernmost provinces have been increasingly restive the past three years, but no insurgent groups are claiming responsibility for the violence or making demands in exchange for stopping it.
Bangkok’s new military-installed government has apologized to the people in the southern provinces for past injustices and is making a new approach to ending the violence peacefully a top priority.
It is the jihadists who should be apologizing, and being called upon to apologize.
