Why isn’t Ibrahim Hooper or Salam Al-Marayati or even Dinesh D’Souza winging his way to southern Thailand right now to explain to these “militants” that Islam forbids the killing of innocent civilians? What’s that? Because the “militants” can make the case from Islamic law that civilians considered to be part of a polity that is at war with Islam are not considered innocent? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?

SUSPECTED Islamic militants have shot dead six people in Thailand’s restive Muslim-majority south, police have said.
A 21-year-old Buddhist government security guard was shot and killed in a public phone booth late Monday in Yala, one of three insurgency-torn southern provinces bordering Malaysia, police said.
Also in Yala, two Muslim men, aged 20 and 24, were shot dead in a drive-by shooting late on Monday.
Militants also shot dead two male Buddhist villagers, aged 52 and 31, who were working in a paddy in neighboring Pattani province.
On Tuesday morning, a 35-year-old deputy village chief, a Buddhist, was shot and killed in a drive-by attack in Narathiwat province.
