Tipping Point reached: Muslim Terrorists demand all businesses close every Friday in Thailand's Southern provinces.Majority of businesses (Muslim and non-Muslim) complying in fear.The Tipping Point has been reached in Thailand's Southern provinces. The majority of the general population is now complying with the dictates of those who wish to impose Sharia. It took about eight to ten years of Muslim daily violence, about 15,000 dead and wounded, and the start of a mass exodus of non-Muslims about four years ago that further increased the proportion of Muslims in the overall population.The only difference between the imposition of Sharia in Thailand and in the United States is that the Thai Muslims use violence on a daily basis to impose their will upon the larger society. In comparison with Muslim violence in Thailand and many other countries around the world, Muslims in the United States rarely use violence to advance Islam. However, even the most basic analysis of news stories confirms that methods of intimidation stopping short of violence are becoming more common in areas such as Dearborn, Michigan where Muslims form a higher proportion of the general population. This is an escalation compared with a decade ago.Will there ever be 'no-go' zones in the USA as there are in France and some other European countries where non-Muslims fear to enter? Why should the United States be immune from such a development?Thai Muslims started the daily use of violence about ten years ago when their proportion of the population in the southern provinces reached a higher level. This use of violence continued to escalate with the increasing Muslim population. The proportion of Muslims in the southern provinces is now rapidly increasing as non-Muslims migrate northward on a mass basis out of fear.The Tipping Point has been reached in Thailand's Southern Provinces.This story from the Nation says "Many shops closed on Friday following threats of violence..." but the story broadcast on Thai Television channel 3 shows rows and rows of Pattani shops closed with not a one open. All shopkeepers are complying.In Thailand's south, the Tipping Point has just been reached.
Leaflets were reportedly been distributed in the provinces, citing Muslim teachings not to do business on the day. Local residents were threatened with
Vendors and shopowners in Pattani's downtown Thepwiwat fresh market, however, said they would close their shops to prevent losses from possible violence.
An uneasy fear hovers over many in this province of the deep south, especially following last Friday's car bomb explosion in Saiburi district, 50 km from Pattani town, which killed six police officers and injuring scores of police, government workers and local residents.
Dispoon Changcharoen, owner of Chong Ah Restaurant, said business is usually good on Friday, the day when customers like to relax and dine out, but that he would prefer to stay safe and would thus be closing his doors this week. He added that in any case, it would be difficult to find fresh food for his kitchen.
He called on the authorities to come up with measures to boost the people's diminishing morale.
Muhammad Kasaha, manager of the Pattani branch of Saha Farms, said rumours of violence on Friday have badly affected the Friday sales volume of his products, mainly fresh chicken.
He said the Pattani business community has been living in fear as a result of the rumours, which have flared over the past two weeks.
The sales promotion, normally held by Saha Farms on Fridays, was moved to Thursday this week, he said.
Meanwhile in Narathiwat, Chamnun Muendam, the district chief of Sungai Kolok, surveyed the situation at a fresh market behind the Kenting Hotel.
He said Thai Muslims in the province usually closed their shops on a Friday, as they would go to pray at the mosque at noon. However, after the survey, he admitted that some of the shops were closed today because the owners worried about their safety.
He called on vendors not to believe the leaflets and the rumours, insisting Islamic teachings do not prevent Muslims from working on Fridays.
"The vendors can do business on any Friday. We have security officials in uniform and undercover deployed in the market to provide safety for them," he said.
