• Iran’s envoy pushes BBL bill

    10

    Iran’s ambassador to the Philippines believes that there is no “good alternative” in ensuring peace and stability in Mindanao than passing the controversial Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL).

    Ali Asghar Mohammadi said during a news briefing late last week that doubts on passage of the BBL would do no good for a country that aims to establish a peaceful region in the South.

    “Maybe there are changing attitudes, but there is no good alternative for [a]peace process in the Philippines than the BBL,” he added.

    Declaring an all-out war in Mindanao like what then-President and now Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada did will “only create more hatred and more animosity among the nations.”

    “Making and building peace is more difficult. It is very easy to fight and kill. [The peace process] should be continued,” Mohammadi said.

    The envoy added that “everybody is waiting” for a more peaceful and stable Mindanao.

    “It’s all about preparedness. You should be prepared for peace plans. If your goal is peace, you should be able to manage the situation so you should not lose [a]peaceful insight.”

    Deliberations on the passage of the BBL were suspended because of the Mamasapano incident on January 25 that killed some 60 people, 44 of whom were commandos from the Philippine National Police-Special Action Force.

    The BBL aims to establish a Bangsamoro entity to replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao. It specifies wealth- and power-sharing between the national government and the Bangsamoro political entity.

    Although there were concerns about the passage of the BBL as a result of the incident in Mamasapano, Maguindanao, the international community has remained steadfast in its support for the peace process, which could end decades-old conflict in southern Philippines.

      U better shot ur mouth Mr Iranian ambassador. We don’t need ur opinion and mind ur own country. Look at your country and can u tell us if u live peacefully n your own backyard? We don’t need this BBL pilipinos can help them to live peacefully if these muslim people really wants to have a peaceful life. They only need to do is to follow our rules and regulations in our nation. We only have one flag, one nation and one country. So u better stay away from us Mr iranian ambassador.

    2. Dear Iranian Embassy,

      Do not interfere in our internal problems and our sovereignity. Shut up your mouth and keep at is in your office. Otherwise ,leave our country alone.

      Why, you are interfering our internal affairs??? Is our President asking for your help …

      Fuck off Iranians.

    3. BBL is very dangerous. MILFs are more vicious than the MNLFs, the MNLFs are more soft on independence and the ARMM should be enough for the moro autonomy changes and improvements can be made in ARMM. But the BBL is scary. the government should just disregard the BBL in favor for improvements in the ARMM including election and changing of its officials to make it work. BBL is the terrorist MILF prelude of independence, its the Trojan horse of Mindanao Beware.

    4. We don’t need any advice coming Specially from an Iranian ambassador. Iranian exported radical ideology , they meddle and exploited too much on other country internal affair like Syria , Lebanon and Yemen. We don need you here and more so we don’t want Philippines to be a war torn country like the country that you dip your hand into.

    5. This BBL is doomed to Fail! The signing of the Framework and Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro was done in Bad Faith by the MILF. Iqbal used a Fictitious Name during the actual Signing. Ref: Commonwealth Act No.142,as amended by Republic Act No. 6085 An Act Regulating the use of Aliases.
      GENERAL RULE: NO PERSON shall use any name different from the one with which he was registered at birth in the office of the local civil registry, or with which he was registered in the Bureau of Immigration upon entry, or such substitute name as may have been authorized by a competent court.
      EXCEPTION: as pseudonym solely for literary, cinema, television, radio or other entertainment purpose and in athletic events where the use of pseudonym is a normally accepted practice.
      JUNK BBL! JUNK BBL! JUNK BBL ! JUNK BBL! JUNK BBL!

    6. Mr. Iranian Ambassador, no one is asking for your opinion about BBL. Please mind your own business and SHUT UP!

    7. Iran is the nation state which is the number 1 sponsor of international islamic terrorism. If Iran supports BBL, does anyone need to say more? God help the people of Mindanao!

    8. The BBL is a prerequisite to the formation of an independent state within another state. It is very dangerous for it will affect those who are against it within the jurisdiction of this law. The Philippines has a sovereign power over all people who are occupying the archipelago irrespective of any social status in life, religion, race and creed. There is only one country, one constitution and one Flag.

      >>> Ambassador of Iran to the Philippines should not MAKE SAWSAW internal affairs of the Philippines. Globally it is known that IRAN IS ONE OF THE SUPPORTERs OF EXTREMIST “ISLAMIC STATE OF SYRIA & LEVANT(ISIL) NOW CALLED JUST ISLAMIC STATE (IS). HIS GOVERNMENT ALSO IS THE SUPPORTER OF REBEL GROUP “AL HOUTI” IN NORTH YEMEN AND NOW TRYING TO OCCUPY THE SOUTH YEMEN. HIS GOVERNMENT ALSO THE SUPPORTER OF LEBANON MILITIA, AFGAHNISTAN TALEBAN, AND THE SHIATES MUSLIM REBEL IN KENYA and SAUDI ARABIA.

      So Filipinos of the Philippines !!! be careful and must be aware of these Iran Officials. Whatever they said to media is just a statement or a message in fact encouraging the MILF+BIFF to continue their rebellion because THE IRAN GOVERNMENT IS BACKING THEM UP!!!
