As reported by Australia's ABC in two stories on 14th and 15th October.
To see the doe-eyed hijabettes in pink simply piling on the charm, click on the first link. They're so sickly-sweet they make your teeth ache just looking at them. - CM
'A peace vigil is being held in the Philippines capital Manila ahead of tomorrow's historic signing of a preliminary peace deal.
'The draft agreement aims to end a 40 year conflict in the country's mainly Muslim south.
It won't. end it. This can only ever be a hudna, on the model of the Treaty of Hudaybiyya. When the Muslim side feels strong enough, jihad will resume, even more ferociously than before. - CM
'Hundreds of people are travelling from Mindanao Island to join a peace vigil near the palace grounds in Manila.
'Muslim women wearing pink hijabs have held a fun run through the capital to promote religious understanding.
Publicity stunt. - CM
'The events come ahead of tomorrow's signing of the draft peace deal between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which could end the more than 40 years of Muslim rebellion (sic: Muslim jihad - CM) in the south.
It will not end it. It will merely signal a temporary timeout, within which the Muslim side will consolidate its gains, regroup and rearm. The jihadists will continue training, the madrasas and mosques will continue inculcating hatred, resentment and aggression. - CM
'Foreign dignitaries witnessing the signing will include the Malaysian prime minister and the head of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, as well as 200 Muslim rebels.
This is not about just a particular ethnic group - which just happens to be Muslim - achieving local self-detemination with which it will then be content. This is about the Ummah, or de facto Empire of Islam, gaining greater control of yet more 'turf', en route to achieving total dominance of a territorial base from which the Islamic conquest of the rest of the Philippines may, in due time, be launched. First Mindanao, then Luzon. It is precisely the same 'salami slicing' technique that has been used and is being used against Israel. - CM
'Another Muslim group, the Moro National Liberation Front, has called the deal illegal.'
'Illegal', of course, in Muslimspeak, can only mean, 'contrary' to sharia'. In other words, they differ from the other Muslims - the ones who have made the agreement - about tactics and timing. It's the old Fast Jihad/ Slow Jihad distinction. In practice, these Fast Jihadists will play badcop to the MILF's goodcop. One 'wing' of the Ummah keeps up the attacks, while the other - pretending to be 'moderate' and 'peaceful' - insists to the kuffar that if only more concessions were made, if only the kuffar were nicer to the Muslims, those wild young men would not get 'angry' and 'frustrated' and be driven to violence..
And now for the signing of the deal, as reported by Reuters and reproduced in the ABC.
'Philippines sign peace deal with Muslim rebels.
In other words: 'Philippines sign temporary truce-treaty with Muslim jihadists.' Or, 'Philippines accepts hudna with Muslim jihadists.' - CM
'The Philippines government and the country's largest Muslim rebel group have signed a peace deal which serves as a roadmap (the same word we keep hearing in connection with the never-ending Jihad against the Jews of Israel, in the Middle East; and I think we have heard this same business of 'roadmaps' in connection with the dispute between Hindu-majority India and Islamic Pakistan over Kashmir, the jewel of India, which the Ummah demands and is in process of devouring - CM) to forming a new autonomous region in the south, a step towards ending more than 40 years of conflict.
40 years of jihad. And I wonder how soon it will be, before all non-Muslims currently present within that 'new autonomous region' are killed, or driven out? And how long will it be, before sharia becomes the law of the land there, not only de facto but de jure? - CM
'President Benigno Aquino and Ebrahim Murad, head of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF), held one-on-one talks before the signing of the landmark framework agreement.
I would bet that President Aquino knows nothing whatever about Islam's doctrines of deception, as discussed by Arabic-fluent Coptic-background American scholar, Raymond Ibrahim. Here, for the benefit of any Filipino who may happen to read this article, and may feel like translating them into Tagalog and disseminating them ad libitum to lawmakers and Catholic clergy in his homeland, and to the military, are the links for Mr Ibrahim's three classic articles.
'Islam's Doctrines of Deception", in 'Jane's Islamic Affairs Analyst', October 2008.
'War and Peace - and Deceit - in Islam' - at Pajamas Media, February 12, 2009. Note: substantial portions of this essay made up part of Mr Ibrahim's written testimony that was presented to the US Congress on February 12, 2009.
"How Taqiyya Alters Islam's Rules of War: Defeating Jihadist Terrorism", Middle East Quarterly, Winter 2010.
Now, back to the signing of this latest illusory 'peace deal', that is, hudna, in the Philippines. - CM
'Before the meeting, Mr Murad, a first-time visitor to the presidential palace in Manila, handed Mr Aquino a miniature gong, which he ritually sounded.
"This is the sound of peace", Mr Murad told the president.
Does President Aquino know that what 'peace' means in Islamspeak is an entirely different thing from what it means to non-Muslims like himself? 'Peace', for Muslims, means: "Muslims rule, and sharia is the only law". - CM
'It was Mr Murad and mr Aquino's second meeting since August last year when they held secret talks in Tokyo, a major turning-point in the violence-interrupted peace negotiations that have lasted nearly 15 years.
I am not sure which side initiated this particular deal. If the Filipino non-Muslims initiated it, the Muslims will have seen that as a sign of weakness; however, the fact that the Muslims have for the moment accepted it, suggests that they themselves were feeling in need of a timeout to recoup their strength...If the Muslims initiated it, then that also indicates they were feeling weak and wanted a timeout; and the Filipinos, if they understood the Muslim paradigm by which temporary agreements and feigned friendship with non-Muslims are permissible only when and if Muslims are weak vis a vis the Infidels, should have simply gone back in and hit harder. But that is a very hard thing for Infidels to get their heads around (that is, that when a Muslim entity sues for peace one is wisest, if at all able, to respond not by entering negotiations but by simply hitting even harder.) - CM
'Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, whose government has facilitated the stop-start negotiations since March 2001 (and as a Muslim participating in a dispute between a Muslim and a non-Muslim side, his sole aim and object will have been to weaken the Infidel side and to strengthen and advantage the Muslim side - CM) was present at the signing along with foreign dignitaries and international aid agencies that helped in the peace process.
'Peace process'. Just like in the Middle East. And it will be just as futile, for Muslims cannot abide to live permanently as equals side-by-side with non-Muslim persons or nations that refuse to become Muslim and refuse to be ruled by Muslims. - CM
"Much work remains to be done in order to fully reap the fruits of the framework agreement", Mr Aquino said.
"We have commitments to fulfil, people to lead, and dreams to achieve".
Mr Aquino: do you know that the dream that animates Muslims is the dream of the global caliphate, Islam, Islam, Islam uber alles? First Mindanao, then the rest of the Philippines, then...South East Asia, and then...the World. - CM
"we are committed to enabling our partners to transform themselves to a genuine political party that can help facilitate the region's transition towards a truly peaceful and progressive place."
So long as the majority of people in certain regions of the southern Philippines remain Muslim, this will never happen. Here is what was written about the Moros - that is 'Moors', a name given them by the Spanish in the 15th century, recognising their Islamic character - in a book written in 1963 by a man who had fought alongside them against the Japanese in World War II. In "They Fought Alone", by John Keats, the author wrote (on p 56) - "These hill Moros...live according to the Koran as interpreted by some illiterate, flea-bitten imam who heard from some crooked hadji what was supposed to be in the Holy Book. What they get out of it boils down to polygamy, slavery and brutality". The author is too kind in perpetuating the idea that the Moro Muslims were misunderstanding or misinterpreting their religion. For 'polygamy, slavery and brutality' is as good a description of the behaviour of Mohammed and his companions, as described in the canonical texts of Islam, and of the general character of Islamic societies across the world and throughout history, as I have ever seen. - CM
'Mr Aquino is expected to issue an executive order shortly to form a 15-member transition committee that will formulate new legislation by 2015 to create a new Muslim local government for the Bangsamoro, the name given by the Moro tribes for their homeland.
'A plebiscite later in Muslim-dominated areas in the south will determine the shape and size of the new Bangsamoro area.
'The new autonomous government will have greater political powers and more control over resources, including minerals, oil and natural gas, than the existing Muslim-governed entity.
And yet another chunk of the world's fossil fuel reserves comes under Muslim control and yet more oil money will, no doubt, pour into Muslim coffers to drive jihad and da'wa campaigns. - CM
'Currency, postal services, defence and foreign policy will remain under the central government in Manila.
How long will it be before the Bangsamoro demand to secede altogether, and a 58th Muslim 'nation' - flush with oil and gas money - joins the Islamintern at the UN? - CM
'The agreement did not give details of the power-sharing arrangement between the national government and the Bangsamoro.
'But it guarantees rights of both Muslims and non-Muslims, unlike a 2008 deal that was struck down by the Supreme Court as unconstitutional.
How long will it be before the processes of 'street jihad' gradually drive out the non-Muslim population? - CM
"Negotiated political settlement is the most civilised and practical way to solve the Moro problem", Mr Murad said.
Muslims always prefer it when their victims give in without a fight..-CM
"We in the MILF central committee did not waver and vacillate in pursuing it to the end, despite the devastating three all-out wars in 2003 and 2008 waged by previous Philippine regimes".
The usual Muslim cry of 'victim', and blame-shifting onto the kuffar. I'll bet , however, that if one looked very closely at the fine detail of those two wars, one would find that the Muslim side initiated a lot of the violence. - CM
'Hundreds of Muslims, many in a 20 vehicle caravan from Mindanao, gathered on a busy street about 200 metres from the presidential palace to lend support to the peace agreement, shouting "Allahu Akbar".
That is, shouting the traditional Muslim war cry, 'Allah is greater". The same cry that Muslims use when beheading bound captives; the same slogan that is shouted by Muslim mobs when conducting pogroms against Christians, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, all over the world. The use of this slogan suggests to me that the Muslim side view themselves as having achieved a significant victory over the Filipino Infidels. - CM
'They also waved banners and held placards which read, "Give peace a chance" and "We support lasting peace in Mindanao".
'Peace' being, in Islamspeak, Muslim rule, and sharia. - CM
"There's no room for pessimism", Norhaiya Macusang of political group Anak Mindanao, told the crowd.
"we are just at the starting point of a long journey to lasting peace, let's join hands together".
'On Sunday, about 200 women wearing the Muslim hijab veil (which essentially symbolises the sharia order - CM) took part in a run for peace with soldiers near the main army base.
'Both parties said there were still unresolved issues on the plebiscite to form the new entity, the creation of an internal security force, and other power - and wealth - sharing arrangements.
In other words, the Muslims will be able to manufacture any number of grievances, once they decide it is time to restart the Jihad.- CM
'While there was an initial agreement on laying down of arms by the MILF's guerilla army, the government said the rebel forces will not be automatically transformed into a local police force.
'The rebels also want a more calibrated demobilisation and disarmament of its forces, citing the security situation in the south with an estimated 115,000 unregistered guns in the area, enough to arm the entire national police force.
'A small breakaway MILF force (all ready to play 'Hamas' to the MILF'S 'PA' - CM), criminal gangs, feuding clans, and Al Qaeda-linked radical Islamic militants are also actively operating in the area, a potential threat to the peace deal."
As I said in my previous posting at NER on this 'peace deal': give it ten years or less. Probably a lot less. - CM
