Muslims eat their own
.... well maybe just loft genades into their mosques while they pray:
(Bangkok) — Attackers fired a grenade into a mosque in Thailand's restive south Thursday, wounding 16 Muslim worshippers in an act of defiance after authorities imposed a strict curfew to contain escalating violence, officials said.
Police suspected at least five Muslim insurgents were involved in the attack on the mosque in Yala Province's Yaha district, where at least 100 people had gathered for morning prayers when an assailant fired into the building with a grenade launcher, police Lt. Apirak Sangkao said.
The attack came amid a rise in brutal attacks targeting both Muslims and Buddhists that had prompted authorities last month to impose a curfew in two districts, including Yaha.
An execution-style shooting of eight Buddhists in a commuter van in Yaha last month and a deadly attack at an Islamic school in a nearby province triggered fears that open combat could erupt between the two communities.
The military suspected that Thursday's attackers were Muslims seeking to foment tensions or intimidate fellow Muslims who might cooperate with the government, said army spokesman Col. Akara Thiprot, dismissing suggestions that it could have been a revenge attack by Buddhists.
"The insurgents wanted to scare away Muslims who may want to cooperate with authorities in quelling violence," Akara said. "They want to cause a strife between the Muslims and the Buddhists and make the two communities distrustful of each other."
Please note, the acting Prime Minister of Thailand, a predominantly Buddhist nation, is a Muslim installed primarily to alleviate Islamic/Buddhist tensions. A simple search of the word 'Thailand' on Little Green Footballs demonstrates how well this exercise has succeeded.
