• BBL, ISIS, taqqiya: A likely scenario


    “Allah is our objective, the Qur’an is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, Jihad is our way, and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”—From a handbook of the Egypt-based Islamist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood.
    “The ultimate aim of our jihad, is to make supreme the word of Allah,”—“The “Bangsamoro Mujahid: His Objec-tives and Responsibilities” written by MILF founder Salamat Hashim, a required reading for all MILF members.

    THE biggest error in this government’s negotiations with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) has been its colossal ignorance of what this insurgent group really is, and the crucial role of the rise of global Islamic militancy in the past decade to its growth and future.

    This isn’t surprising. Check out the background of Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, her predecessor Marvic Leonen, their boss-chief, “peace” adviser Teresita Deles, and the two other members of the peace panel, and you would find that none of them had ever studied what Islamic jihadism is and its rise since the 1970s – probably not even in the past three years.

    The people who agreed to the MILF’s terms are basically bleeding-heart gullible NGO activists, who had from the start believed the MILF’s simplistic narrative that once there was a “Moro nation” oppressed by Spanish and American colonizers, and then Christians from Luzon, and who would be prosperous if left alone and given enough re-sources.

    It is a simplistic narrative that glosses over the crucial factors for poverty among Muslims in Mindanao, such as the massive corruption of their leaders, which is even really part of their feudal “datu” culture, the nature of Islam as stuck in medieval world-views, and the fact that the coconut industry dominant in their areas has been the same engine for generating poverty in most poor provinces as Samar and Quezon. If poverty has been worse in Maguindanao and Sulu, blame the Islamic insurgents’ uprisings against the government and the kidnap-for-ransom Muslim gangs as the Abu Sayyaf that have emerged there.

    There is a Muslim member of the panel, a Maranao – Yasmin Busran-Lao – but her training has been as a psychologist, and she’s in the panel because of her closeness to the Liberal Party. She was a party candidate in the senatorial election of 2010 who lost by a landslide.

    Weapon of choice: Left, MILF fighter. Note his T-shirt indicating “Basic Military Training Course” under the National Guard Command, Central Committee. Right, recruitment video of ISIS.

    Weapon of choice: Left, MILF fighter. Note his T-shirt indicating “Basic Military Training Course” under the National Guard Command, Central Committee. Right, recruitment video of ISIS.

    But she is also the chair of an NGO called “NisaUl-Haqq Fi Bangsamoro.” Why would we have a member of the negotiating panel who has embraced, ignorantly or deliberately, the invented term “Bangsamoro,” which represents a false idea: “We are not Filipinos, we are the nation of Moros – whom you Christians oppressed and called us this pejorative term.” Unlike all previous administrations, this peace panel didn’t have a veteran military man who has fought in Mindanao, who could tell them what he thought of Moro insurgents.

    No Moro Nation

    There is no such thing as a “Moro Nation,” as much as there is no “American Indian Nation” no “Australian Aborigines Nation,” and no world Caliphate that the murderous Islamic State for Iraq and Syria wants to establish.

    Muslims in Mindanao were of different ethnic tribes who saw themselves not as “Moros,” the pejorative term used by the Spaniards to call them, but as members of “mini-nations,” or tribes such as Maranaos, Maguindanaoans, Tausugs, Yakans and 15 other smaller ethnic minorities, many of whom hate each other’s guts and even think the other tribe is of a lower species.

    The stupidest thing ever our Congress will be doing is to enact into law the usage of the term “Bangsamoro.” This is in total capitulation to the MILF’s ideology and a colossal error for our Republic, as it, in effect, legalizes and propagates a notion invented by Islamic insurgent organizations to further their cause of secession.

    Four presidents – Marcos, Corazon Aquino, Fidel Ramos and Macapagal-Arroyo – created the Autonomous Region for Muslim Mindanao, and named it as such.

    Only this stupid, ignorant or power-hungry President and his paid minions in Congress have capitulated to the Muslim insurgents’ ideology by renaming this region as “Bangsamoro Autonomous Region.”

    Maybe not really stupid, but just totally unscrupulous. President Aquino wanted the BBL to win for him the Nobel Prize. The Liberal Party, on the other hand, calculated that the BBL would generate so much support for its presi-dential candidate, Mar Roxas, in 2016, whom Muslim provinces overwhelmingly rejected in the 2010 vice-presidential elections in favor of the currently leading presidential candidate Jejomar Binay. The BBL, the Yellows think, would be enough to generate the margins for Roxas. At any rate, the BBL’s passing would be cover story for their massive cheating in those areas.

    Aquino appointed as negotiators a dupable panel of NGO activists with a messianic complex of ushering world peace, with its first head, Leonen though, cleverly using it as a catapult to become the youngest member of the Supreme Court. And then he would bribe congressmen to ram it through Congress, with the Senate and the Supreme Court now remaining as the only obstacles to the BBL’s passing.

    They haven’t even heard of the Islamic notion of taqqiya. Historically, it allows Muslims to deny their faith or commit otherwise blasphemous acts, when they are at risk of persecution. The principle had evolved as an accepted tactic, supposedly allowed by their religion, to deceive an enemy.

    MILF chief negotiator Mohagher Iqbal and our gullible negotiators claim that the MILF has dropped its original aim to secede from the Republic. But is this taqqiya in operation?

    I have never even heard its chairman Murad Ibrahim or its vice-chairman Ghazali Jaafar say so. I haven’t seen an MILF official document declaring that it has dropped this goal of secession.

    Framework Agreement silent

    Even the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro that Iqbal signed is silent on this MILF goal, which its founder and religious leader Salamat had declared and written as his organization’s ultimate aim.

    Ferrer and her gang do not seem to understand that Islamic militancy is based on the principle, which their adher-ents claim the Qur’an itself calls for, that it is the religious obligation of every Muslim to fight for the establishment of an Islamic state.

    Read the BBL’s provisions that give the MILF so much power, note how the ISIS has grown swiftly in the span of a few years to be on the verge of establishing a Caliphate in Iraq and Syria, and remember this Islamic notion of taqqiya.

    Rather than acceding to the MILF’s demand for a Bangsamoro government, this Administration and this Congress should make sure the BBL law contains enough safeguards to make the following scenario impossible:

    On the first year, the MILF would be quiet and appear to govern the BM well. It would, however, build up its forces to the six divisions they had envisioned decades ago. Six divisions so the MILF would be as big as the Armed Forces of the Philippines, as Murad had explained to me way back in 1996.

    Their control of customs in Bangsamoro territory and its Police Force would enable them to import and amass the latest weapons, even artillery and anti-aircraft missiles, likely even coming from the ISIS. They would be doing this even as they pretend to decommission their rifles.

    When the six divisions have been fully manned, it would provoke ‘attacks’ by AFP on their forces. It would also complain that its BM government hasn’t been getting the financial support the BBL promised.

    The Bangsamoro Parliament would pass a resolution to secede from the country and apply for admission as a federal state of Malaysia. They would claim that that they prefer to be part of Malaysia as run by their brothers in Is-lam and as being more economically advanced.

    The BM “Parliament” would call for a “plebiscite” to ratify its resolution. The BBL would even allow this with its provisions on “self-determination.” MILF with its arms in the senatorial election of 2010 would ensure that such plebiscite would overwhelmingly approve the secession resolution. Bloody battles would break out as a strong president might even try to preserve the Republic by ordering the AFP to disarm the MILF and its Bangsamoro Po-lice.

    Malaysia would step in and tell the Philippines that “for the sake of peace” let the Bangsamoro join their federa-tion. Kiss goodbye central Mindanao, Sulu and Tawi-tawi – and their rich natural resources.

    Ferrer and Deles, if they are still around and haven’t emigrated abroad, would be saying, “Give peace a chance. Let the Bangsamoro go (to Malaysia).”

    Our children’s children would be wondering why we were so stupid as to have lost Muslim Mindanao, just as we wonder now why the stronger nation that was the Philippines allowed Malaysia, a fledgling state in the 1960s, to annex Sabah so easily.

    We would tell them Aquino and his party were so power-hungry as to sell a part of the country so they’d continue holding on to the presidency. And congressmen were so willing to help him cling on in exchange for money.

    1. Since we Muslims were in a wronged path as what I understood in some of your comments why not you reach out tell us your religion so we can have one religion in this loving country and no problem in extrimism terrorism rebilion kidnapper and ect.

      I suggest come to us tell us your religion…or ler us have a dialog on COMPARATIVE RELIGION huwag tayo matakot sabihin natin ang katutuhanang SALITA NG DIYOS para wala na mag AUTONOMY O FEDERALISMO kapag isa na lang Religion batin.




    2. Yan huwag ninyong payagan..Sabi ng ka group ko..one day Philippines will not be Philippines anymore.. what a shame talaga ?..i’am not happy at all the , the Whole situation !!

    3. Thank you all for your comment especially for mr. Tiglao really amazing. NO TO BABLA’ S ABNOY at basahin ng lahat ng Peace Loving Filipinos itong facts ng World History.

    4. Only a weak and stupid government
      will capitulate or deal with MILF and
      other Moro terrorists. Giving them
      a state of their own at the expense of
      sovereignty is too much.
      We must not allow this to happen or
      we’ll all be sorry later.
      These moros can’t be trusted, they are double-dealing traitors.
      JUNK BBL.
      we’ll all be sorry later. These moros
      can’t be trusted.

    5. The only reason why everything you have described as events hardly beneficial to the Philippines are currently happening [e.g the BBL proposed legislation ] is the fact although you will hardly believe, is:

      Cory Aquino is a staunch communist.

      BS Aquino III is, likewise, a staunch communist too.

      Why do you think Hacienda Luisita is not being attacked by the CPP?

      Because the CPP leader who is now operating from Netherlands, who was captured and imprisoned by the late Pres. Ferdinand Marcos, was released from prison by Cory Aquino.

      Who killed Benigno Aquino during President Marcos term?
      Who else but the communists + CIA [regime change] in order to destroy Marcos.
      Remember, Marcos droved out US bases from the Philippines!

      What do you think why Cory Aquino did not together fly back and walk hand-in-hand with her husband when her husband arrived at the Manila International airport?

      If Marcos wanted to have Aquino killed, he could have easily done so while Aquino was still in custody before he was allowed by Marcos to undergo medical treatment in USA.

      Why do you think Aquino wanted to flyback to Manila that time?

      Because, Aquino wanted to warn Marcos himself because he wanted to save the Philippines, as his love of country is above any of his relationships.

    6. Iqbal being a super liar is a good example of a Taqqiya. Our president ang Phil peace negotiators are also practicing Taqqiya. LIES AFTER LIES! They are only being used and exploited by the MILF in their advantage. What an ignorant Non Believers/Infidels! Junk BBL! Jail the Traitors!

    7. Bert O. Romero on

      Taqqiya ( Takiya) or the doctrine of simulation is an option utilized by such “peace” negotiators Yasser Arafat and Sudan’s Hassan al- Turabi to stress their commitment to the armed struggle under the guise of pursuing Koranic principles. Arafat specifically justified his involvement in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process by comparing it with the Prophet Muhammad’s Treaty of Hudaibiya , signed with the Jewish tribe of Quraysh in A.D. 628. In that treaty, Prophet Muhammad promised his Quraysh enemies peace for ten years. Two years later, however, he violated the treaty ostensibly in reaction to a provocation, but in reality as soon as his armies were ready for war. He then conquered Mecca and slaughtered the Quraysh displaying the severed heads of the Quraysh leaders on the poles of the Mecca gates.

      Arafat was quoted as saying : ” Negotiations with the enemy are no less vicious than any military operation carried out by our mujahideen and revolutionaries”. He added: “We have not closed any of our options, which include jihad”.

      Hudaibiya as an off- shoot of taqqiya has gone down in Islamic history as a model for warfare. One of the palaces of today’s prime minister of Bahrain is named Hudaibiya in commemoration of the A.D. 628 treaty. Taqqiya as an option in warfare predates Sun Tzu’s Art of War. Hashim Salamat, Muraj Ibrahim and Mohagher Iqbal have all been thoroughly grounded on Islamic and Arabic history, culture and sharia in for years in such centers of learning as Al Azhar University in Cairo and other Islamic universities in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Malaysia. Sadly, the duo of Mirriam Ferrer and Jing Deles have not even set foot in any of these centers of Islamic studies.

      The Muslim Brotherhood’s motto as quoted above stresses jihad as “our way”. “Qattiloo fi sabilillahi alladheen yuqatilonakum ” Fight in the way of Allah those who fight you. This is militant jihad which to Islamists has informally become the sixth pillar of Islam. The word jihad whose etymological root word is Jahada which means to strive or struggle can be invoked in its benign form to ward off suspicion from perceived enemies. Hence , taqqiya at work.

    8. Mr.Tiglao,your comments on current issues are relevant and enlightening,sad to say our country no matter what you exposes,WILL NOT PROGRESS,BECAUSE OF THE GREEDY OFFICIALS ,AND THE STUPID ELECTORATE.

    9. I say it again, BBL is not only bad, it is “EVIL.” Pnoy think about this if you are reading this column.

    10. Kale Alaskador on

      OK! OK! You don’t have to say more!

      So what are we going to do about this? How do we protect our country from the traitors who sit in this government?

      Do we declare our own JIHAD?

      We always pray God help the Philippines. But we have to help ourselves first! Do we need another Andres Bonifacio?

      The AFP and the PNP are under the thumb of traitors! Who do we turn to? the NPA?

      Enough talk! It is time to ACT!

    11. Norodin Lucman on

      Bangsamoro people are Malays, not Muslim Brotherhood, ISIS or other labels that represent extremist ideologies. They just want to live in peace after centuries of conflict and warfare. War solves nothing. But the Qur’an exhorts believers to defend themselves from the enemies of Islam.

      But the MILF, from the time the late Hashim Salamat founded it, has believed in the ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood and now the ISIS. It is written in the very words of Hashim Salamat. And these words are still the Guiding Spirit of the MILF until now.
      That is why MILF coodles bandits and criminals, like the three that caused the death of 44 PNP-SAF commandos with the help, in the final analysis, of Aquino.

      • Odnalor Obirt on

        Very true that MILF officials and members are Malays same as most other Filipinos. Same Muslim Brotherhood & ISIS, these MILF Muslim believe and follow the same book and Law – These are the Quor’an & Shari’ah Law respectively. Practically this means what the Muslim Brotherhood and now ISIS are now doing will be the same things the Muslim MILF will be doing. MILF Muslims adore and wholeheartedly follow the teachings in Quor’an as interpreted by their mullahs.

      • Norodin Lucman on

        Hashim Salamat studied in Egypt as scholar of Pres. Gamal Abdel Nasser, enemy of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan). Scholars have studied the works of Hassan el Banna, an eminent Islamic scholar and thinker. Banna is the founder of the Ikhwan movement.

    12. Cres Malifier on

      We Filipinos must give social justice to the Filipinos–Christian, Lumad and Muslim in Mindanao, uplift the economic and socal conditions of the poor Muslim Filipinos and even pass affirmative action laws to empower them and rescue them from underdevelopment. But this must be done at the expense of the sovereignty, national security, territorial integrity and constitutional order of the Philippine Republic.
      May God Almighty have mercy on us Filipinos and halt the madness that BS Aquino and his allies in the House are doing to help establish the ISIS as a government in the proposed Bangsamoro as envisioned by Hashim Salamat.

    13. Sana maraming makabasa nito,upang alam nila kung saan sila lulugar!salamat!!

    14. delfin todcor on

      Thank you sir for expressing your heart for the preservation and national security. We wrought letters address to our congressmen an senators explaining what you said last April 07,2015. We hope that our representatives will listen to us and disapprove the false peace because it is crafted as a law in the guise of peace but actually was written to support the DAR AL ISLAM caused. The Muslims were taught that none-Muslims are inferior race and they are considered infidels so they are required to wage war against the infidels! They call our the none-Muslim Nations as place of DAR AL HARB or place of War!This Muslim mind set need to be confronted or oppose otherwise they will impose what the Quor’an mandated them to do.That is to force by use of arms their Islam culture on us. This is not seen by our lawmakers because they seem not to read the Islam ideology. We are fighting a religious ideology based on False salvation and the way to fight ideology is to use our constitutional laws and tell them to respect it because it gives them the freedom to practice their religion without prejudiced so why the MILF terroist insist on self rule! We must tell them with love and compassion the true salvation found in Jesus. He came to tell us our Fathers’ great love found in John 3:16. Jesus is the only way to heavenly Kingdom not Allah or Mohammed! The Bible said in John 14:6 that Jesus is the truth,the way and the life. Apart from Him are false way which were planned by Satan to mislead mankind.
      Acts 4:12New King James Version (NKJV)

      12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

      Acts 2:38-39New King James Version (NKJV)

      38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

    15. We expect that once this BBL has been approved and becomes part of our legislation, it will be the start of our darkest days in our country. We ask the almighty to give us protection from our dumb leaders who have been used by the devil.

    16. Right Mr. Tiglao, fight by writing the future of Mindanao under the hands of Abnoy.

    17. The Muslim Holy Book States: you can look a non believer in the eye and tell him anything he wants to hear, cause his “Quran” states you will be forgiven when you tell lies to a nonbeliever. Same goes for killing: it also states that its the duty of all true Muslims to kill all Christians and Jews

    18. BBL must be totally scrapped. It will do more harm to our country than good in the near wfuture. It’s a one sided documents , that favor a few and excluding the majority. It nonsense to say the least. It for political propaganda of the administration at the expense of the majority of peace loving filipino. Do they really care for peace or they just care for Nobel price or political vote ? We must reject the BBL…..
