Muslims Murder Buddhist Monk in Thailand

The Qur'an commands Muslims to fight unbelievers:

Qur’an 9:123—O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who guard (against evil).

Earlier in the same chapter, the Qur'an defines "fighting" as "slaying":

Qur’an 9:111—Surely Allah has bought of the believers their persons and their property for this, that they shall have the garden; they fight in Allah's way, so they slay and are slain.

It should come as no surprise that such teachings are still driving the violent murders of non-Muslims around the world.

PATTANI, Thailand -- Police say suspected Muslim militants have fatally shot a Buddhist monk in a drive-by motorcycle attack in insurgency-plagued southern Thailand.

Police Maj. Gen. Rapeepong Sukpaiboon says two militants carried out the attack Saturday in the Kok Pho district of Pattani province. Two other people were wounded, including another monk.

In a separate attack in nearby Kapo district, police Maj. Gen. Klanarong Phueakkumgrit says insurgents detonated a roadside bomb as a military truck passed by, wounding three soldiers.

Pattani is one of three Muslim-majority provinces in southern Thailand that have been wracked by an insurgency that flared in 2004 and has claimed more than 4,00 lives since then. (Source)

It is very disturbing that not only Muslims tolerate these kind of killings, it is also encouraged too according to their holy book. I wonder how they can balance their religious practice with promoting peace and non-violence towards non-Muslims.
