MILF Calls for Jihad (Kaya mo bang takutin ang tuso?)

The MILF is suddenly calling for Jihad after government troops have been overrunning their camps one after the other in a seemingly all-out-offensive to capture two MILF commanders who led in the massacre of civilians in various provinces in Mindanao. According to the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, religious leaders in Lanao are calling for a Jihad in fighting oppressors against Islam. This calls for holy war were made in sermons of religious leaders during Friday congressional prayers as posted in GMANews.Tv. 

Malacanang however dismissed such claim by the religious leaders of Lanao provinces as a political gambit. According to Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita  there was no basis for the call since the pursuit was only for the roque MILF commanders and it has nothing to do with religion. Ermita further explains that this is only an attempt to involve and turn said military action (for the capture two MILF commanders wanted by the law) into a religious conflict when it is not. He also said since there is no actual religious conflict between the Christians and Muslims to justify it, a Jihad could not be waged.           

But if you ask former President Joseph Estrada, what is needed is to wage an all-out war against the MILF; something which Malacanang rejects. Ermita said that President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s policy should be the one to be followed instead which is to continue the peace process rather than risking more lives and damages of property in an all-out war. While former president Estrada believes that an all-out war is the solution, the Arroyo’s administration is not, it will be more beneficial to continue with the peace process.  Besides, an all out war may connote that the government is “at war with our own citizens.” And this is not necessary since only a small portion of the rebel group is involved. 

Former Senate President Franklin Drillon however called on the government and the MILF to go back to the negotiating table and find creative ways to resolve the issue on the discontinuation of the Memorandum of Agreement on Ancestral Domain (MOA-AD). The government and the MILF must exercise patience if both want to achieve a lasting peace in Mindanao. “I have not lost hope. As long as we do not forget that we are all Filipinos, with the Philippines as our only country, the end to the conflict will always be in sight,” said Drillon. 

May patutunguhan ba ang pag-uusap? 

Isa lang ang hinihiling ng pamahalaan ang isuko ang dalawang commanders, Bravo at Kato, na siyang pasimuno sa pagpatay ng maraming civilians at pagkasira ng maraming kabuhayan at ari-arian at itigil na ng militar and kanyang opensiba laban sa mga MILF. Ngunit ito’y imposibling mangyari.Sa isang banda ay pinatunayan din ng military na kayang-kaya niyang lipulin ang MILF kung gugustohin. 

Ito yata iyong ipinupunto ni Erap, former president Joseph Estrada na itodo na ang all-out war at nang matapos na ang gulong ito at manahimik na ang Mindanao para naman umunlad ang pankalahatang ekonmya ng rehiyon. Hanggang may gulo, walang mga investors na papasok at maglagak ng capital para magtayo ng mga negosyo na siya ring pakikinabangan ng mga tao in terms of taxes and employment. 

Maganda sana ang layunin ng mapayapang pagu-usap kung may sinsiridad ang bawat panig, ngunit tila wala yatang interest ang bawat isa na magbigay. Matagal nang ginagawa ang mga ganitong kaparaanan para makamtan ang kapayapaan ngunit habang tumatagal ay lalong binabale wala lang ang pagu-usap. Kaya tama rin ang panawagan  ni Drillon na maging pasensiyoso ang bawat panig at mag-isip ng mga bagay na talagang makakatulong sa pagsulong ng pang-matagalang kapayapaan. 

Ngunit bakit Jihad ang iniisip ng mga MILF, dahil ba sa gusto nilang lalo pang magkagulo ang Mindanao sa pagdamay ng relihiyon na hindi rin namang isyu dito. Nananakot ba ng MILF? At kung gayon na nga ang iniisip ng Bangsamoro, handa ba ang military ditto? Sabi nga iba, hindi naglakas loob ang mga nasa panig ng gobierno na ipawalang saysay ang Kasunduang MOA-AD kung hindi niya kaya itong harapin. Sa ganitong sitwasyon wala na marahil ang patutunguhan ng pag-uusap, paikot-ikot lang tayo.

  1. With the MILF of a fragment of it, advocating for Jihad means, they have given up the peace process and the government should be aware of its consequences. The trouble is, the administration has not synchronized in many ways. Para walang conductor orchesrating the whole thing. The military says, they’re on the war and rightly so because they were ordered to pursue the rebels. Malacanang has different spokesmen singing very tunes which oftentimes confused those out in the war zone. To go all out war or not, it’s always the stumbling dollars question.

    Meantime, the civilians in the affected areas are wary on the calls for a jihad and they can be faulted for arming themselves. And going by jihad, it will not spare imperial Manila either.

  2. Kap,
    Malalim na hindi ang ikinikilos ng Malacanang sa Mindanao dahil lalo pang pina-igting ito nakaraan ang kanilang mga opinsiba in guise of running after the group of commander Kato and Bravo. Kahit sa kasagsagan nga ng Ramadan gaya ng sinabi mo ay tuloy pa rin ang military offensive. At lumalala naman ang sagupaan at putukan ngayon. On the other hand Malacanang talks of peace process. Dito nga sa post mo ay mababasa nating minamaliit pa ni sikretaryo Ermita ang bantang Jihad ng mga MILF. Ang worry ko lang kung ma-pickup ito ng mga panatiko, hindi kaya magagaya din tayo sa Iraq at Afganistan sa tindi ng suicide bombings?

  3. Sorry po ayaw kung manakot. I hope I am wrong.

  4. Mer,
    Tulad ng laging pinapaalala ko kapag hindi naresolba ang kaguluhang ito ang Philippines is another Afganistan.Walang pinagkaiba dahil ang mga Jihadist ay nagtraining sa mga tenyente ni Bin Laden na mga Taliban.

    Binabasa ko pa ang Quoran para may matutunan ako kung ano talaga ang Jihad? Mahirap kasing mag comment ng taliwas sa nakasulat baka makuryenti at magagalit sila sa akin.Kapag mabasa ko na lahat ay gagawin ko sigurong topic.Ayaw kong sabihin ni Agnes Denavera na hindi ko nabasa.

  5. Kapitan,
    Kabilugan na naman ba ng buwan at nag-aalburuto na naman ang mga Jihad sa Mindanao.May solustion daw si Cocoy sa problema diyan.Ipapadala daw niya ako doon at magdala ng ham for peace offering.Ano sa palagay mo Banong? Sama ka sa akin.

  6. Kimuchi si Banong ito ang nasa admin ngayon. Kung ako ay sasama sa iyo, sorry Kimuchi walang tatao ngayon sa Barangay Hall dahil binabantayan ni Kapitan iyong mga tanod niya na kasalukuyang tinutuli ni doc.bobonyo sa may tindahan ni aling Britney, hahahayyy.

  7. Kapitan

    Iyang kaguluhan sa Mindanao matagl ng panahon iyan.Walang katapusan iyan kahit na sino pa ang ipalit nating presidenti.Matagal na ang hidwaan ng mga Muslim at kristiano.

  8. Di bale na Banong kung ayaw mo akong samahan.May bagong dating na guapo doon kay Cocoy at crush ko siya.HIHIHIHIH>

  9. Magpapa2Ly pa raw bago sumama sa iyo, hehehe.
    Wala pa ba si Kap?

  10. I am here na College girl. Papasyal pa ako kay pareng Cocoy para mabasa ko iyong banat ninyo doon. Matindi daw iyong statement ninyo, may “lunacy” pa raw na ginamit hahaha. Pinag-enjoy ko lang si Banong dahil puro simangot na lang siya kung ako ang nasa admin, hahaha. Mabuti hindi kumarera ng bisekleta kay Sumulong at Renato paakyat ng Baguio hahaha.

  11. Tama ka sa obserbasyon mo kumander pipi. Sana nga ay hindi ito lalala ng husto dahil mahirap nang maging Afganistan of Irag tayo kagaya ng sinabi ni pareng Cocoy. Nasa academe pa ako ay pinaguusapan na namin ang puno at dulo ng problema sa Mindanao. Siguro hanggang ulyanin na tayo nandiyan pa rin ang problema kung hindi ito masusulosyunan ng mahusay.

  12. Kimuchi ano ang pinakain mo sa mga girls at nagpapacute na sila kay Mr. Pogi na dehin goli, hahaha. Siguro kapag iniregalo mo sa kanya ang iyong golden bikini, parang langaw siyang malalaglag sa iyong mga palad, hehehe.

  13. Nasaan kaya si manugang at absent siya ngayon, hahaha. Baka nagli-leture na naman siya sa parlor nina Mer, hehehe.

  14. May MILF camp na naman na na-capture ng AFP. But it’s a shallow victory, nakalayas na ang mga rebelde bago pa nakarating ang sangkaterbang Army, hehehe.

  15. Hi Kap, how do you do. Namiss niya, I mean ninyo ba ako? Present na ako. Si Colegiala parang magpapandesal na nanggigising early in the morning, hehehe.

    Nagmemo tuloy ako sa kanya, ito.

    I am feeling beautiful this morning, I don’t want to destroy my day by joining you play pingpong with sour losers. But word of caution, time is so precious to waste away with close-minded and extremely illogical fiendish organisms in the blogging world, but instead have a taste of wine. Go ahead love, and be romantic at all time.
    Naks naman ha…

  16. Hmm, si manugang pala. Siyempre namis ka niya, I mean na miss din kita.
    Sana biruan lang iyan ha, baka mag-away kayo ni colegiala niyan.
    Hayaan mo na siya, may pagka-tandang sora ang kaibigan mo, nagpupunit din iyan ng sedula sabay sigay, Mabuhay ang Katipunan, hahahaa.

  17. Mer, biro lang ha? Exit muna ako at may kukunin lang akong supot sa opisina ni mayor, hahaha.

  18. Kap,
    Biroan lang iyon. Siya nga pala kung hindi pa kayo nakapagpapainit ngayong umaga, magjogging muna kayo sa CD at makipag-spar sa mga astig na may pusong mamon, hehehe.

  19. At saka Kap, ito ang word of wisdom ko kay Manong Greg.

    All tingling sensations start with fingering. In the hands of a virtuoso, it makes Inday scream like an electric guitar. But should he decide to pick, he does not only do it up and down, up and down, but picks it in a circle to wet up Inday climbing up the stairway to heaven in vibrato.

    For your information and guidance, hehehehe.

  20. bakit hndi nalang ibigay ang gusto ng matapos na? kasi nagsasayang lang ng panahon ang gobyerno sa mga ginagawa nila eh. at least pag binigay na hinihiling wala na silang reason para mag inarte ng gnyn divi? madadamay pa civilian. kakaloka tlga…

  21. Hindi nakukuha sa santong usapan ang MILF kundi sa sabugan!

    Ermita says that EK is against an all-out war as a solution to an everlasting peace in Mindanao, and that Gloria’s fake administration will instead patiently continue with the peace process because it is more beneficial.

    Beneficial of course to Gloria only! Para umabot sa 2010 at makapandaya ulit. Ginagago ang madlang pipol!

    Centuries na ang inaabot sa paghahanap ng kapayapaan sa parteng iyan ng Pinas. And to be “patient” is ridiculous. Edong just want to say: Gloria won’t seek immediate peace in Mindanao because she herself is just stretching her days to stay in her stolen throne!

  22. Ikuwento ko muna sa inyo si Samartino at hindi si Renato.

    The parable of the Good Samaritan is Jesus’ response to a lawyer’s question,”Who is my neighbor?” In this parable,Jesus describes who our neighbor is.Our neighbor is not just someone who may live near us or someone who is part of our crowd.Our neighbor is anyone who is in need or is a victim of injustice,even someone unknown to us.

    To help the lawyer truly understand this new description of one’s neighbor,Jesus told a parable,He turned the lawyer’s question inside out,upside down.He asked the lawyer.

    “In your opinion,which one of these three: priest, Leviste or Samaritan acted a neighbor toward the man attacked by the robbers?” Luke 10:36

    Jesus taught that our neighbor is any victim of injustice,even from among people you have been taught to look down on.We are to reach out and help every person who is suffering from oppression and injustice.We are to treat every person fairly and with respect.

    This is maybe,the reason I allowed Renato in my blog because he has nowhere to go.

  23. Pagkatapos kong makipagpulong sa mga Board of Directors unanimously na nakagkasunduan na kailangan ay ma censor si Renato.–

    precedence case:

    Laguardia Vs.Willie Revillame
    Laguardia Vs Joey De Leon
    Mahal Vs Willie Revillame

    Base sa hatol ng mga Board of Directors Mr.Renato Pacifico will be banned in posting his comment if he write with intent of Malice,intent of Blasphemy,intent to insult Filipino people,and intent to cause psychological,emotional,depression and do mental harm to the bloggers of CD.

    These order must be impose immediately.

    Signed
    CD Chairman and Board of Directors

  24. Cocoy,

    I would gladly have renato in your blog but he is causing the blog NO more DELIGHT. He makes it a forum of his own failures that he sees in all pinoys.

    In a free world, an atheist is allowed to practice his own belief, but your blog is not the proper venue because innocent kids read it for a hearty laugh.

    If he truly wants to preach his own belief and frustrations, why not set up his own blog? That would be more effective for his cause. Ganyan ang ginagawa ng mga may mission.

    A FREE expression is NOT absolute, it has responsibilities to its readers/listeners/audience.

  25. May curfew ka bang ipinairal dito kapitan.Walang nag-iinuman sa tindahan ni britney.

  26. Kararating ko lang mga kasama at may bago tayong poste.
    Nangusap ang board of directors, unanimous ang decision kaya we shall abide by it. Thank you board of directors ng CD.
