      But jihad means internal struggle. But the lesser jihad means fighting in a just war. But the U.S. killed so many of them for oil. But the Buddhists are violent too. But but but…

      This conflict really highlights how false many of Islamophile beliefs are.

    Thailand, one of the most beautiful and friendly countries in the world. Unfortunately they have a muslim component and this, death and dismemberment, is the result.

    As time passes it is becoming more and more apparent that islam must be eradicated.
