in the context of the bombs in bali (yet again), here is a note about thailand's problem with its mohammedan southern provinces.
apparently, mohammedans cannot live under non-mohammedan rule or coexist with non-mohammedans.
this will of course result in 'greater bangladesh' being set up in india's northeast, to be followed by 'mughalistan' in uttar pradesh, delhi, bihar and madhya pradesh. this is part of the long-term plan by separatist mohammedans.
and once they get these mohammedan-dominated, sharia areas, ethnic cleansing will begin as in jammu and kashmir. as we are seeing in mohammedan-majority malappuram district in kerala as well. (btw, i dont know why everybody calls it mallapuram: it is not 'malla's puram'. it is mala = mountain + puRam (hard R) = top of, therefore malaPPuram).
Bangkok Struggles to End Separatist Violence in Southern Thailand
Drafted By: Adam Wolfe
While the world looks to suture the recent Aceh peace agreement onto the violence that is bleeding southern Thailand, the region's Muslim insurgency is eyeing the benefits of globalized terror networks. Bangkok has tried a variety of responses to the separatist violence -- everything from imposing martial law to dropping 100 million origami birds inscribed with peace messages onto the region -- but nothing has curtailed the violence, which has killed some 900 people since January 2004. With every attempted tactic, Bangkok seems to reinforce the differences between the Muslim, Malay-speaking south and the Buddhist, Thai-speaking majority.
also, thanks to reader kapidhwaja and others for a pointer to the allegedly peaceful sufis' good works. timur lane was a sufi and he was very 'peaceful' indeed: he only massacred 100,000 in delhi. he frequently made pyramids of human skulls. from the andrew bostom book.
sufism looks like an interesting invention to make mohammedanism more acceptable to those with spiritual and mystical traditions.
much like the christists have their madonna cult (eg. velankanni), intended to blend into the local culture. the madonna cult, one notes with interest, is most often used to infiltrate poorer, more rural societies like mexico (our lady of guadalupe) and poor rural france (lourdes) as well as india where the mother-goddess idea still exists because they are agricultural societies. pretty innovate, i should say.
here's the data about timur the devout sufi. sounds a lot like another devout person, aurangazeb:
