The punishment of those who wage war against God...and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution [by beheading], or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;
And of course, there is the well known example of two prisoners of war beheaded after the battle of Badr under Muhammad's direct orders.
It should come as no surprise then, that an insurgency fighting in the name of Islam (9:29, 9:123) to establish Islamic law (2:193) would adopt the tactics prescribed in the Koran and Sunnah - namely, such brutal forms of execution as beheading and crucifixion.
SUSPECTED Islamic insurgents shot and killed two people and wounded three others in a bomb blast in Thailand's troubled Muslim-majority south, police said.
Gunmen broke into a house in Yala province and shot dead a 16-year-old Buddhist girl, also wounding her 29-year-old husband, they said.
A police officer, a soldier and a civilian defence volunteer were wounded when a bomb exploded as they went to inspect the scene.
Also in Yala, militants handcuffed a 42-year-old Muslim defence volunteer and shot him execution-style in the head before dumping the body in a road on Saturday, they said.
More than 3900 people have died in shootings, bomb blasts, beheadings and crucifixions since a separatist insurgency erupted in Thailand's southern provinces bordering Malaysia in January 2004.
