Four people have been killed and more than two dozen injured in a wave of lethal bombings across Thailand. Thai police find more unexploded bombs following coordinated blasts.
Muslims have made life hell in Southern Thailand waging holy war to impose Islam and impose sharia. I have been documenting Islam in Thailand for years. So what does the enemedia call these savages? An “armed separatist insurgency.” Evil. Like all Islamic “separatist” groups in China, Russia, Israel, etc., they want an Islamic State.

Bangkok (CNN)Five provinces in Thailand have been hit by 11 bombings in less than a day, authorities say.

Thais must be united as one.”
