Jihad Comes to Thailand - Devout Muslims wound 13 with car bomb in crowded Buddhist neighborhood

The Religion of Peace, Part XXVII

The jihad in Thailand is only going to get worse. As America’s power in the world continues to diminish under Obama, the forces of evil are becoming more emboldened, brazen and savage. 

There is growing Muslim support for the Islamic State (IS) from South Asia to the Far East; four new jihadist groups are planning an Islamic caliphate comprising Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and the Southern Philippines. 

"Car bomb hits insurgency-plagued southern Thailand; 13 hurt,” Daily Star, February 20, 2015:

HAT YAI, Thailand: Suspected Muslim insurgents in southern Thailand Friday detonated a car bomb that wounded 13 people and damaged buildings, police said. Two other bombs were defused.
The bomb was hidden in a pickup truck that was parked in front of a karaoke bar in a commercial district in Narathiwat province, police Col. Manit Yimsaai said. He said the explosion wounded two soldiers and 11 civilians, one of them seriously.
Manit said the blast just after the lunch break also damaged rows of restaurants and shops in the predominantly Buddhist neighborhood.
He said the pickup was reported to have been stolen on Thailand’s southern border with Malaysia and had been used in a previous rebel attack.
Suspected militants also threw a pipe bomb at a restaurant 50 meters from the first explosion, but the improvised device did not go off and was defused, police said.
Manit said an explosive ordnance disposal unit used water canon to successfully destroy another explosive device hidden in a motorcycle in front of a nearby grocery store.
Narathiwat is one of the three Muslim-majority southern provinces in Buddhist-dominated Thailand.
More than 5,000 people have been killed in the region since an Islamic insurgency erupted in 2004.

Nothing to do with Obama or ISIS. Been going on for decades

Pol Lt Gen Prawut Thawornsiri, assistant national police chief and spokesman for the Royal Thai Police, said officials believe the attacks were intended to destroy tourism and the region's economy at a time when tourists, typically from Malaysia, flock to the province.

****** Nothing to do with Obama or ISIS. ******

I've got SHOCKING news for you - the world does not revolve around Obama.

As a historian, I have Blogged many, many times that we are in a 1,400 year old war against Islam. Muslims have been murdering, enslaving and conquering their neighbors since day one.

Our Dear Leader is only the latest of an endless list of rulers having to deal with Islam. Muslims will be attacking us long after Obama is forgotten.
