The Never - Ending Moro Wars!

YESTERDAY

THROUGHOUT the entire world, rightly or wrongly named, conquest and wars in the name of Islam or because of Islam have been around for almost thirteen centuries.

In the Philippine Archipelago, they have been around for almost six centuries. To be fair to Islam and our Moro brothers, these wars may have also been in the Name of or because of or for Christianity and Roman Catholicism.

 

Islam Origin

Islam was first brought to the Archipelago by an Arab Trader, Karim of Makhdum, in 1380. The first Mosque was established in Simunul.

For the next two centuries, the Islamic Religion…

Laughable toady

IT had been calculated that the "Battle at Marawi City" would be won by the second day this June with the entire city being virtually reclaimed by government forces. But that's just a battle, not the war itself...the war against fundamentalist Islam, a religion espoused by the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

ISIS has been on a rampage spreading its horrors throughout different continents, in a determined effort to re-establish the Ottoman Empire of the 13th century...the war against Muslim terrorists who kill those who don't believe in their Deity called Allah. It's worrisome that hostile…

Changing the mindset of urban poor

UNDOUBTEDLY, the socialized housing sector of the country is in a constantly rising backlog—caused by uncontrolled ballooning population of urban poor dwellers.

The other reason for this backlog is the inefficient resource allocation by the government with its mind stuck on building units without the accompanying basic amenities of water, electricity and sanitation aside from being too far from employment opportunities and ‘civilization.’

 

Unoccupied Units

The backlog is even questionable as hundreds and thousands of units of low-cost housing projects remain unoccupied long after they were completed and are left to deteriorate through time.

The recent illegal “occupation”…

Bad Weather for Duterte, Mindanao and the Philippines!

PRESIDENT Rodrigo “Digong” Roa Duterte has a favorite quote from former President and now Manila Mayor Joseph “Erap” Ejercito Estrada, “Weather, Weather, Lang Iyan!” President Estrada has had his “ups” (1969, 1971, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1998, 2010, 2013 and 2016) and “downs” (1967, 1986 & 2001). That’s how he coined his saying.

Today, President Digong is in the second “down” of his presidency. The first was in January and February of this year. 

Although the Korean businessman was kidnapped and killed inside Camp Crame in October of last year, the news broke in January. The on - line…

Lanao del Sur

WITH your timely proclamation of martial law all over Mindanao, Mr. President, you have shown once again your genuine concern for the welfare of all Filipinos. 

We hail your decision to nip in the bud ISIS' masterplan to establish a base of operations in our country. All the anti-ISIS peoples of the world wish you well in your endeavor.

Sadly, a number of your critics in this regard are Filipinos. They are the Liberal Party Yellows, the commies led by Joma Sison (those holed up at The Hague for peace talks) and their armed NPA comrades in our countrysides,…
