Jihad in Thailand: 118 incidents reported in October in deep South

Here's the latest horror report from our man Chai in Thailand:

During the month of October 2013, Muslim terrorists made 118 attacks in Thailand's four southern provinces, where they murdered 32 people and wounded 72 others. The most common method of attack was the roadside bomb (45 incidents), followed by shootings (28 incidents).
To put some perspective on these attacks by Muslim terrorists, consider that 114 of the attacks and all of the deaths and injuries took place in three provinces: Narathiwat, Pattani and Yala, that have a combined population of about 1.9 million people. 
Can you imagine if the city of Houston, Texas (population about 2 million people) had 114 Muslim terror attacks, 32 killed and 72 injured in the month of October alone?
