21 Feb BIFF: We shall NOT return
JUAN SAYS: We don’t understand why we even talk to these people. But in the spirit of ‘fair play’ which clearly these pond scums don’t have, we bring to light what they have said in an interview with Radyo Inquirer 990AM, through BIFF spokesperson Abu Misri Mama:
Kumbaga sa boxing, knockdown sila. Kasa sa amin yun (If we talk about boxing, they were knocked down. So that’s ours,” he said.
“Ibabaril namin sa kanila (We’ll use it against them),” he explained when asked what they will do with the 10 firearms confiscated from the fallen Philippine National Police-Special Action Force (PNP-SAF) troopers.
Let us try to get into the psyche of these so-called “Freedom Fighters” to better understand where they are coming from. It can be recalled that the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters is a breakaway group of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, who is also a breakaway group of the Moro National Liberation Front. The reason for their falling out? The premise of having Mindanao as a separate country from the entire Philippines run by morons (yes we spelled that correctly thank you). These armed groups have one thing in mind, to have their way in their own little country. MNLF made a truce with the government with the establishment of the ARMM where MNLF leader Nur Misuari was the first governor. Now MILF is getting the limelight with the establishment of the new autonomous Bangsamoro region once the BBL is passed. Both MNLF and MILF turned away from their original cause, thus ang mga nagaalburotong baliw.
Why they came about that ideology of having an Islamic State governed and protected by armed Muslims, with a population of Christians outnumbering Muslims is totally absurd. However in their small minds, everything makes sense. If you would remember the speech made by MILF ‘s chairman Iqbal (read it here), their problem started from 300 years ago where they lost Manila to Spain, and they were driven out of the north and pushed back to where they are now. Then the oppression came again during the Japanese era, the Martial Law days, etc. etc. It has become in fact, a very long and tired story of fighting and losing and fighting again. Now, because of this so-called oppression they are demanding a state to entirely call their own.
This has been their mindset since the 1500s when the sultanates were founded in the Philippines. There has been a prevailing culture among the moros in the Philippines from then on that we are failing to take into consideration. Why are they thrilled with fighting? Why do they seem barbaric? And why are they demanding for a separatist state? The answer is simple, they have been molded and brainwashed to be “entitled” by their culture, by their laws, and by their religion.
Sa totoo lang, hindi naman talaga sila Pilipino. How can they be considered Filipinos (as defined from 300 years ago – those who pay taxes to King Felipe of Spain) when they were never conquered by Spain and that, they never paid taxes to the Spanish-led government at that time? How can they be considered Filipinos when their Shariah laws are sometimes contradicting to the Philippine Constitution? How can they be considered Filipinos when they do not want to pledge allegiance to the Philippine flag as clearly stated by their actions/words that they still want to continue killing our soldiers, using guns that they took from our men. Baliw talaga!
Truth be told, they just played along to being Filipinos when the Americans came, most probably due to the lack of identity, the lack of power to wage a war against the whole Philippines (backed up the American government, well, to this day we presume). They just needed a place to stay, a place to call home, because Sabah is already with Malaysia and until this day they are still (or the other tribe of Muslims) fighting to reclaim it.
And then in comes the clan wars, the tribal wars which, can be traced back to historical times (again). Remember too that the Maguindanao massacre has yet to be resolved, and why such families can even think of killing people for power is already beyond resolve. Why are they blood hungry? Because they were born and raised that way. Even their fathers, their forefathers, and their ka-lolo-lolohan has forever believed that you must by all means (force and violence included) take what you think is yours. Remember the Sultanate wars? Yun nay yun. Ganun sila ka ancient.
Lastly, comes religion. This piece is lovingly written under this premise: “hindi namin sinasabi na lahat ng Muslim ay terrorista. Ang sinasabi lang namin, ang lahat ng terrorista ay Muslim.”
We are happy that 80% of the Islam followers have already opened their eyes to the realities that war is NOT the answer. But we put our focus on the remaining 20%, though a perceived minority, they are the ones who kill people, hamper the growth of Muslims (and Christians included) who want a better and peaceful life for themselves, they are the ones who kill, behead, burn and what-have-you, the non-believers, because in their heart of hearts this is their gateway to “heaven.” We focus on the 20% because there seems to be a need to annihilate them. How? That we don’t know.
Since chairman Iqbal cited the bible verse (“Truth shall set you free”) during the Senate inquiry on the Mamasapano tragedy, we respectfully refer to the Quran for our arguments.
FACT: There are at least 109 verses in this sacred book that call Muslims to war with non-believers for the sake of Islamic rule. Some are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding.
And kill them wherever you find them, and turn them out from where they have turned you out. And Al-Fitnah [disbelief or unrest] is worse than killing… but if they desist, then lo! Allah is forgiving and merciful. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [disbelief and worshipping of others along with Allah] and worship is for Allah alone. But if they cease, let there be no transgression except against Az-Zalimun (the polytheists, and wrong-doers, etc.)” – Quran 2:191-193
This verse most probably explains the continuous war in Muslim Mindanao. This along with the 108 more verses explains why these “freedom fighters,” “moro rebels” are so adamant with having their own state (or in the case of MILF an autonomous region governed by them and them alone). How then can we make them understand peace when having unrest is the only way they know how to live? Fact is, they have a different concept of peace. Whatever goes to head when we talk about peace and tranquility is exactly NOT what they are thinking. They can live in peace all right, only when they have killed all non-believers of their ‘god’ and religion. (We apologize if we do not say that we believe in the same God as they do. We can’t believe in a higher being that rejoices in killing people). There will always be an urge to kill especially for those who have been battle-worn through many decades of fighting, especially for those who do not know any better because this is the only way they know how to live.
We urge everyone to stop citing the Geneva convention agreement. Please bear in mind that no law governs these terrorists but their own beliefs. The Geneva convention was created as a protocol for the humanitarian treatment during war. And the people we are referring to are no human beings, thus, the Geneva convention doesn’t apply to pond scums.
There maybe Christian bigots (oh lots of them in churches that makes us want to kick them right smack in the balls) and there will be Muslim bigots who can do extreme damage to their country and to their Muslim brothers and sisters who have already opened their minds and their hearts to the true meaning of peace.
“Fighting is prescribed for you, and ye dislike it. But it is possible that ye dislike a thing which is good for you, and that ye love a thing which is bad for you. But Allah knoweth, and ye know not.” – Quran 2:216
Sincerely we feel for Muslims seeking for peace (in the real and universally accepted concept of it – tolerant, co-existing and respect of each others beliefs), especially those who once ate, breathed and lived the teachings of the Quran, taking everything at face value, and doing everything at face value. It is not easy, to unfollow the values, the gospel truths that you held on for so long only to find out that this is not the way to live. Our hearts and our prayers go out to them. It is not easy, especially if you are deprived of exposure to other religions and cultures, especially if you are going against the tide of what your family holds on to be true, most especially when you were never conditioned to accept the concepts of love, peace and respect. It is close to impossible.
