It wasn’t Christian fundamentalists, you say? It was Islamic jihadists? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?

BANGKOK, Thailand: Two men were killed Wednesday by suspected Muslim insurgents in southern Thailand who apparently targeted the victims because they were Buddhist, police said.
The first victim was identified as a 55-year-old rubber tapper, who was shot three times while driving his motorcycle by a gunman on the back of another motor bike, said police Maj. Suthas Noosrikong of Lammai police station in Yala province, where the attack occurred.
Fifteen minutes later, a gunman pulled up on a motorcycle to the home of a Buddhist man in the same village. The attacker entered the home and fired three times, killing the man, aged 69.
“We believe that Muslim insurgents are responsible for the death of the two Buddhist men today,” Suthas said, saying police believed the killings were premeditated. “The attackers mean to scare Buddhists away from the area.”
