Muslim insurgents claim southern Thailand is occupied land by Thai/Buddhist invaders. These insurgents have conducted over 3000 terrorist attacks between 2004-2007. In the past week, they burned parts of three schools, killed some people who happened to be in the vicinity and killed a teacher as she entered a school. There is apparently a deliberate plan to attack Buddhist and Muslim civilians in hope of creating so much chaos that Thailand will grant Muslim freedom. This is pure fantasy since such tactics will not win.
There is need for the Thai government to initiate economic development plans as well as develop a more professional Muslim education teaching staff who can offer children a more open minded approach to learning. The present Thai approach is not work.
