Misuari: It’s a recipe for another big, big war in Mindanao


Moro leader Nur Misuari (sulu.gov.ph photo)

“This framework agreement to me would be a recipe for another big, big war in Mindanao,” Nur Misuari said.

“Cut my throat if Hadji Murad can ensure peace in Mindanao,” Misuari said, referring to Murad Ebrahim, chairman of the MILF, who witnessed the signing of the framework accord in Malacañang Monday with President Aquino and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Misuari, leader of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) that signed a peace agreement with the government in 1996, continued to rant Monday against a new peace accord.

The MILF, he said, is “so unpopular in Mindanao.”

He claimed many MILF members returned to the MNLF because they, too, were upset about the framework agreement for the creation of a new autonomous region in Mindanao, to be called Bangsamoro.

Misuari’s extreme pessimism came in sharp contrast to cautious optimism of most Muslims in Mindanao and the guarded optimism of the Catholic Church that greeted the signing in Malacañang yesterday of the preliminary peace agreement between the government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

1996 peace deal

But the chair of the MNLF Central Committee lauded the signing of the framework agreement.

“The signing of the government’s agreement with the MILF proved that our decision to enter the 1976 Tripoli Agreement was the right thing to do,” Muslimin Sema, now mayor of Cotabato City, told the Inquirer by phone.

Sema, however, wanted to know how the new agreement would harmonize with the 1996 peace deal with the MNLF.

The answer will come when the Transition Commission begins work on the creation of the Bangsamoro, which will replace the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM).

The government and the MILF have offered the MNLF seats on the commission so it could participate in the work toward a final peace agreement.

The World Bank welcomed the signing of the peace deal, which, it said, marks an important step toward achieving peace, security and development that would benefit all Filipinos.

Much work remains to be done to turn the framework agreement into a final peace agreement and, more important, to translate it into security and prosperity for the people of Mindanao, particularly the Bangsamoro, the World Bank said in a statement.

MILF knows best

Sumaly Mangindra, mother of two MILF fighters whose father died fighting for a Moro homeland in Mindanao, welcomed the peace deal with cautious hope.

“Independence would have been the best solution to our problem, to our poverty, to our being less developed, and I am convinced it remains the best solution,” Mangindra said.

“The MILF is our official representative in finding peace in our homeland,” she added. “What is good for us is best left to our leaders.”

Consultations urged

Catholic bishops in Mindanao said they were maintaining “vigilant optimism” on the new peace agreement.

“We believe that continuing consultations with all stakeholders are necessary to bring the peace process forward,” a group of bishops in Mindanao said in a joint statement issued yesterday.

The statement was signed by Bishops Guillermo Afable of Davao del Sur, Colin Bagaforo of Cotabato, Jose Cabantan of Malaybalay, Edwin de la Peña of Marawi, Jesus Dosado of Ozamis, Elenito Galido of Iligan, Dinualdo Gutierrez of South Cotabato, Martin Jumoad of Basilan, Antonio Ledesma of Cagayan de Oro and Archbishop Orlando Quevedo of Cotabato.

The prelates said that while they welcomed the peace deal, it is not the end of peace building efforts in Mindanao.

“Rather it is just the beginning of much hard work in concretizing the meaning of sincerity, security, sensitivity, solidarity, spirituality, and sustainability in our various communities in Mindanao,” they said.

Muslims in Manila

In Manila, Muslims at the Golden Mosque in Quiapo said the framework agreement was long overdue.

“There had been agreements since I was little. Finally here’s an agreement giving the Bangsamoro people their own government,” Asis Marandacan, 37, said.

Samsia Cabilli, 45, said the Moros had been asking for a peace deal since the time of former Presidents Joseph Estrada and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. “At last there will be peace,” she said.

Akmadon Lidang, a vendor in Quiapo, said the Muslims had waited long for this agreement.

The Greenhills Muslim Traders Association welcomed the preliminary peace agreement as a “step in the right direction.”

Nassif Malawani, president of the association, said the 2,000 members of the group saw the agreement as the beginning of an “achievable peace” in Mindanao.


Welcome to military

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) praised the government and MILF peace panels for clinching the preliminary peace agreement.

Col. Arnulfo Burgos Jr., AFP spokesperson, said the signing of the agreement was a “concrete example” of the principles embodied in the military’s anti-insurgency campaign.

    Misuari could be right. After all, if ever there will be more war in Mindanao, he is sure to be just one many who will be instigating it.

  • CheapJ

    This guy never wanted peace after all. He was given a chance when he headed ARMM but failed miserably.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2YAYHPL4WJCO4FGRTUY56DUSNU maria

    Misuari is still the trouble maker. No one is good except him. He still thinks only he has the right solution for peace in Mindanao. He blew the many chances he had. Give others a chance, Nur. Your one sided formula will never work. Join us or leave us!

    Misuari still lucky after he pocketed millions of dollars of money when he was the chairman of ARMM, he still alive and free. This guys is a certified touble maker of Mindanao. He was given the chance to rule small muslim populations in Mindanao but he decided to enriched himself , and forgot to give progress to his people. If this lunatic moro leader wants war, so be it. these people are hard to please, they’re used to this kind of way of life, killing eacth others just for fun.

      don’t judge all Muslims by the action of one man. if our Bangsamoro brothers really want peace, they will kill Misuari on their own.

  • ApoLapullapu

    Nur Misuari is a consistent dweller of  the past decades.  The questions have changed and he is still offering the same old answers. He had used the Moro people in attaining a high life style for his family during the time of President Fidel Ramos but he left the Bangsamoro underdeveloped. He botched the ARMM.

    There will be war in Mindanao because this guy himself is encouraging the muslims in Mindanao not to obey on this peace deal! Why war? what people would get with war? Our President has done a very good job indeed for having this peace deal happenned! Let’s unite and work together how we can improve our country..Muslims, Christians, what’s the matter with it? we all belong to one country so we are one! Mindanao is the most beautiful place in the Philippines, but the only problem is, we can’t improve the place and all the investors and foreigners are scared in our beautiful mindanao because of these MILF, MNLF & Abusayaff group…

  • scorpio22

    The Aquino administration should have incorporated the Tripoli Agreement and the MNLF Agreement with this new agreement to get the full consensus of the Muslims in Mindanao. For some reasons they chose to undermine the MNLF knowing that they are still a significant group in Mindanao. And this is the result.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_MDOEHEMLNVSTET7ZCS2MKQ7WRI Flavio

    someone should liquidate misuari immediately. that man’s time has elapsed. stay out of the picture , nur and give peace a chance…

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/VBIZ5ZTCHCIQ7PILRDPH5EWWMY Fernando

    Hey! Am I reading it right? This is the first time I read positive comments about the peace agreement between the Muslims and the Aquino government. Positive comments outnumbered the negatives. At last there are these people who believe that these peace agreement is really a golden opportunity for peace.

    And I like also their comments about Misuari which are very true. He is and would be the real trouble maker. He blew up his chance to be the caterer of peace. Now, he is asking for continues war because he is not the central figure in Mindanao anymore like he used to be.  If this happens, he will be leading his people to the wrong direction and path of life. Our Muslin brothers are already tired of fighting, causing the unnecessary lose of precious lives and resources which could have been used for development to have better lives.

    Let us hope that this will be really the beginning of a lasting peace. Our people, Christians and Muslims alike, deserve this peace.


    • boyod

      How dare you  to say that the negative votes was outnumbered by the positive votes, did you count our more that a million votes, assuming ka bai. Yes, you are right that there are people who believe on this initiative but not the ksilent majority, Don’t be presumptuous AMIGO! 

  • PaengSaAmerika

    When Nur was given a chance to lead, he messed up and showed he was incompetent administratively. Now, he’s not giving this new peace initiative a chance and instead, predicting chaos among the people in Mindanao. All of us know that peace agreement is just a ‘temporary’ thing. How precious a single day of peace without lives being wasted.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/CAWLT6SE3IC36RTDVRUIDWO364 Dag Erickson

        The war in Mindanao erupted because of brother Nur Misuari’s disinformation. HE TOLD OUR ILLITERATE MUSLIM BROTHERS THAT THE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT WILL CHRISTIANIZE ALL MUSLIMS BY FORCE.  Today’s generation doesn’t know it!    He is hinting that he is broke now and he must be given money to keep quiet. 
        Nur Misuari is bad news to all Philippine muslims.  He must first explain what did he do with the money given to him for the development of Mindanao and money to be shared with his fellow top muslim leaders.  How will he explain his bank accounts in Malaysia and Saudi Arabia?  He had a chance to improve the lives in his community but instead, he pushed it 20-years behind.  As proof, just look for yourself the ARMM area.  During his time,  top muslim leaders got very rich, while the poor got very poor.

    That statement right there by Misuari says it all that PEACE has no chance in the Muslim world. Although, the secular Muslims are excited about this peace initiative based on a framework agreement but again the MNLF, the fundamentalist radicals are strongly refusing to acknowledge. Misuari and the MNLF will not tire until they have their own MNLF independent state.

    Misuari, why don’t you take your recipe of a big, big war to Sabah. Bring your 9000 MNLF troops and the 17000 MILF troops that will be joining you soon. Wage war in Sabah and take it back from the Malaysians. I’ll even support your group financially, I’ll be happy to part with some of my hard earned cash if you use your troops to take Sabah back.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDXEVEFHW2ZT5VWHDWBNM6XGE4 RyanE

    I guess without the support of OIC, Malaysia and Indonesia, Mr. Misuari and his MNLF cannot wage war anymore. Misuari got his chances to uplift his people but he failed miserably due to corruption.


    Mr. Misuari and his MNLF should accept the offer for seats in Transition Commission. By doing so, they can diplomatically voice out their opinion toward the overall betterment of Bangsamoro. We are tired of useless war Mr. Misuari, I beg you to please stop your rants against the new peace accord.Be a cooperator for peace rather than an instigator of violence!

  • okabato

    A never ending war, as long as the factions in the muslim hierarchy can’t get along with each other, the war will go on.

  • johnlordphilip

    Misuari is for PEACE as long as he is given the greatest POWER! Now that he is only offered a lesser power… he is for WAR again. I hope the Filipino muslims are wise enough to know who among their leaders are good muslims and are truly for peace.  


    >>>“Cut my throat if Hadji Murad can ensure peace in Mindanao,” Misuari said, referring to Murad Ebrahim, chairman of the MILF, who witnessed the signing of the framework accord in Malacañang Monday with President Aquino and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak.<<<

    We should listen to him. He knows by his own experience how the MILF resisted the similar peace pact with MNLF. There is no guarantee to prevent the emergence of another rebel muslim group. And just like the complacent attitude of then MNLF returnees against the MILF, expect the same cycle of rebellion – peace process to happen again.  

  • deadlyshooter

    Misuari, leader of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) that signed a peace agreement with the government in 1996, continued to rant Monday against a new peace accord.

    for the pass 16 years of leading Mindanao, what have you done, was there lasting peace? from the way the people saw it, there was no difference from the time you took over until this time, no peace, worse war has not ended but proliferated, thus the situation in Mindanao has further deteriorated…as it was, the agreement with your group was a big failure…thinking out loud, why not just support this peace accord, encourage the rest of your people to participate and protect the agreement and really espouse genuine peace in Mindanao, which the people, not you, has hoped long enough…instead of ranting and making ‘papansin,’ join and support this peace accord, this will help a lot rather than oppose and be a crab, pulling this peace agreement down or else stop ranting and raving like a nonsense preacher in the street and leave, you’re just a small mote ready to be plucked out a blind eye…be sane, sober, senile and objective, be a true Filipino for once…STOP TALKING, LISTEN AND HELP…the people of Mindanao and the entire Philippines need your support…HELP or just LEAVE….

      both sides agree, there’s no agreement when there’s only one agreeing, in this case, they both agree to the peace accord…it was not rush, it has been since the time the MNLF take over, that long and maybe, the people of Mindanao are already tired of fighting wars among their brothers…misuari should stop ranting, he was given a chance to address the problem of Mindanao and he blew it…he did not address the lawlessness there, thus no genuine peace was met…maybe, he should give this agreement a chance, it’s not even started yet…

The FA 2012 as a road-map is definitely not a rushed one at that.  To disregard the dinosaur Nur is a brilliant strategic move to push for  a peace agreement with an MILF. Nur wants to stop at his behest because he wants power. Let him run, and see for himself whether Muslims still consider him as a leader. DO NOT TAKE THIS DINOSAUR SERIOUSLY. ’nuff said.

    Maybe let’s give Misuari the benefit of the doubt. I also have my own apprehensions. Let’s give the Bangsamoro a chance to eliminate  other rebel Muslim groups ie. the group of Umbra Kato and future armed groups that will spring from this agreement, including the Abu Sayaff. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LPLWHPS7B5WPHPRAREXBIP2BIY renato

      The first that must be eliminated is Misuari himself and his rogue followers.  If Misuari is a man of peace, a true Muslim, he would have extended his support to this new agreement.  He sour-graped because he has lost any influence and respect from Mindanawons.  The ARMM indeed is a failed experiment–thanks to Misuari; he is first and foremost to be blamed for its failure.  Since he is running in the 2013 elections, let it be a litmus test if he still has the support of the Muslim-Filipinos.  I would rather sway my benefit of any doubt to the MILF, but never to Misuari. Search your heart Nur.

    Under Misuari’s watch, ARMM people became poorer. Under Ampatuans’ watch, ARMM became more poorer. Under Hattaman’s watch, ARMM remains poor. Why? It is a fact that executives in the ARMM pocket millions of IRA funds. The people there know by themselves this is true. Question: Will this not happen under the Bangsamoro especially so that they will get the bigger part of the pie as far as regional wealth is concerned? I am certain it will happen unless there is a radical approach to this.

    Nur Misuari is a sad reality of the failure of the Bangsamoro people for self-determination, social and economic prosperity and aspiration for human dignity which every decent and peace-loving Filipino wishes for them. This is a man who fought against the marcos dictatorship, against the oppression of the Muslim Filipinos, founded the MNLF and given a false sense of importance by the Cory Aquino and Ramos adminstrations.
    Unfortunately, Misuari has shown that he didn’t really have the welfare of the overall Muslim Filipinos and other Filipinos in Mindanao in his mind and heart but only his own interests and of his circle of Muslim Filipinos.
    What has Misuari done despite the enormous assistance given to ARMM during its inception with him as its first governor? Where was misuari during the reign of the ampatuans in ARMM characterized by massive corruption, brutality and warlordism?
    With the OIC, UN EU, US, Japan, Australia and Malaysia supporting the PH-MILF Peace Framework Agreement, Misuari is crying for attention like a spolied brat. Its doubtful OIC will lift a finger to support Misuari in his opposition against the PH-MILF Agreement knowing that Misuari is in utile, incompetent and corrupt.

    Nur Misuari and his Moro National Liberation Front, (MNLF) may yet be the spoiler and mischief maker in the efforts of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) and the government to make peace.

    Misuari is getting older and yet he seemed not to have learned from the bitter lessons of the past. He does not seem to understand that the world is very different now, that even in the Middle East the Arabs have awaken to the reality that freedom and peace are the best options they can take. 

  • Jamm3r

    MILF and MNLF both are supposedly muslims living and sharing the same beliefs in terms of faith. yet, they cannot agree with one another. they say theirs is the religion of peace but why would these two factions cannot share and unite in promoting PEACE in the region. i wouldn’t be surprised if this deal between the government and the bangsamoro will be less fruitful because they, muslims, themselves cannot live and agree with one another (how much more with the government of different beliefs, i hope my reasoning, in the future will proved me wrong). one way or the other, there will be atrocities in the region and this time finger pointing will happen as these two dis-agreeing factions will take advantage of conflict between the MILF and MNLF. who will throw the first accusation for yet another future military ambush? who knows, except them, and the government will be left hanging and pondering whom to believe. it happened in the past, after the government inked an agreement with the MNLF and it may happen again under the peace treaty with the MILF. take the words of nur misuari for example “it’s a recipe for another big, big war in Mindanao.” as for me the government should let the MILF and MNLF settle their differences first before the government entered into a reasonable peace pact with the two agreeing factions. yet, mine is just an opinion and mere speculation based on observations. and like, many of our muslim brothers who believed in this sincere action towards peace, i am also hoping this peace pact between the government and the bangsamoro will live to its expectations and objectives to achieve genuine peace in spite of the presence of the nur misuari’s objections and pessimism.

    The MILF is only a breakaway group of the MNLF and does not represent the Muslim population in Mindanao. . The bottom line of this PEACE ACCORD issue is how to get the financial aid of the Organization of the Islamic Conference . . . PERA. . . naglokohan lang sila dito. . . at niloko lang nila ang mga taga Mindanao. . . Kaming mga Christianos na taga-Mindanao have lived in peaceful co-existence with our Muslim brothers and learn how to resolve conflict if it arise. . . there is no such thing as framework for peace lalo na ang mga taga Luzon ang nagpasimuno sa usapin pangkapayapaan na hindi nila kabisado ang mga taga Mindanao. . . instead of Peace they are dividing the Muslims by ignoring the MNLF. . . kaya nga nagulat na lang kami dito ng sumulpot itong issue ng Peace Accord na pilit pinalaki ang kagulohan sa Mindanao. . .ang sa akin lang mas maigi kon ang gigirahin ng MNLF ang doon sa Malakanyang na nagpasimuno nito.

      Many a time during nur’s reign, he would reserve in advance an
      entire floor of a 5-star hotel in manila exclusive for his royal entourage
      and bodyguards, more extravagant than visiting Arab kings from the
      fabled middle eastern kingdoms… 

  • wakats

    Nur misuari is already past his prime at 70 and his influence to the
    length & breath of the former ARMM has significantly dwindled due
    to his long absence in the limelight and his pending case of terrorism 
    where he’s on bail.

    Nur’s boast of 17,000 MILF soldiers defecting to MNLF and the prospect of 
    a bigger war in Mindanao as a result of the peace accord that excluded
    him in the years-old negotiation, is met with a grain of salt.

    Almost everybody is praying for peace in the mainland Mindanao – be it
    Christians or Muslims – and it’ll succeed because the inhabitants are tired
    of war…

    The CAR was established for the people of the Cordilleras and it has proven to be a wise move for the there.  Only the NPAs remain as the stubborn goup fighting the government.  The questions is, why hasn’t the ARMM granted to these Muslims not enough for them?  What is their real motives fo continuously fighting anyway?  There was this belief that they are pushing for their own agenda to create a greater Islamic state spanning Mindanao, Borneo, Malaysia and Indonesia. If that is so, their journey has just begun.

  • whyinthisworld

    Everybody should not listen to misuari. He is just making noise to show that he has power and still in command but the truth is only limited blind followers are keeping the mnlf active and alive. No improvement, no changes but poverty during his term. Where does billions of pesos spent. Suggest to audit him before making a lot of unnecessary statement when in fact he has nothing to do with it. In other words, he’s out.

      So are Christians..There were 3 sets of Chirstians I hired in my farm business in Sultan Kudarat. They all lied and stole much money from me..They are alcoholics, womanizer and liars. I hired muslim workers, they were honest simple, hard working, disciplined and honest..What happened to the stereotyping of bad Muslims. Or, the only good muslims are the dead ones..And also, the christians profess so much faith in God whenever they talk to me..But, they were nothing but thieves..I felt that the Muslims are already contented to have something to eat on their table..as, for my Christian  workers, they want to have party (alcohol) and shopping..So what is really  so good about us Christians..We are nothing but a buch of hypocrites who thinks that God is on our side..I have enough of your ignorance!!!! Look around you in metromanila where 99% are Christians.. When I go back to PI, I don’t usually stay in Metromanila..You people there are animals..I am always afraid that the taxi driver will rob or kill me, or the cops will frame me etc….I ahve been around the farms in Sultan Kudarat and Maguindanao. I have seen and mingled with a lot of armed men, MILF,MNLF, Christian militias, private armies of the Mangudadatus, ordinary Muslims with long arms..I never felt threatened by them…and they called me sir all the time..Leave people in Mindanao to decide for their own destiny. It’s their life and lands..Northerners- you caused us so much hardships in our lives. You raped our own lands and exploited us for so many years…Back off, will you!!! By the way, I am a Filipino/America citizen..

    Nur what happened to that humble torpe kid in Diliman. You have allowed the system to corrupt you and your opposition is a desperate grab for recognition. Had you done well in uplifting the lives of the Bangsamoro people when you were ARMM governor this new peace deal may not have been necessary.

  • $29483279

    Bring this inutile Misuari back to detention. He had all the time to initiate peace initiatives in Mindanao. But what had he achieved after 36 long years? Nothing.

    Now he has the gall to warn for a bigger war in in Mindanao despite the overwhelming acceptance of the new peace accord.  Empty threat, Misuari.

    You are offered to join and participate in the transitional council where you can contribute your input to ensure that peace will be achieved for the whole country.

    You refused to join. Why? Ego?

    True!  There won’t be an immediate peace in Mindanao dahil si miswa-ri ang unang mang-gugulo.  pag nagilitan na ng leeg si miswa-ri dun magkakaroon na ng katahimikan kasi di na sya makakapag-dakdak.

    the backlash will be unbearable! It is UNCONSTITUTIONAL  in all aspect!
    WHAT is under the constitution is the creation of ARMM ( AUTONOMOUS lang ) not a CREATION of a BANGSA MORO & a POLITICAL ENTITY( new STATE ) …That is why it is UNDER the LOCAL GOVERNMENT provision lang!!..and there is NO other provision that it SUBJECT to RE-INVENTION……it is ONLY given ONCE……. if it is a FAILURE the proper thing to do is to RE-ORGANIZE its OFFICERS …NOT to create a NEW one & keep on EXPANDING it EVERY TIME there is a FAILURE of governance… until they get all the LUZVIMINDA…that is pure INSANITY…!
    after the creation of ARMM there can be NO expansion or extention …nor a RE-CREATION…..the constitution only provides for its CREATION ..not RE-CREATION or REPEATEDLY created after-failures and failures.., till it gets whole of luzon & visayas…
    NOW on the OTHER HAND , the cordillera autonomous region CAN ALSO ASK the WHOLE of LUZON…is that NOT proper?…if this govt can SURRENDER sovereignty & territory to a small bunch of REBELS who does not even control their area ( many rebel groups )  why the govt. can NOT give the SAME PRIVILEGES to christian & communist rebels in LUZON & VISAYAS…Is this NOT a LUNATIC VISION of GOVERNANCE?!

    it’s sad that misuari couldn’t get past his bruised EGO and contribute to the effort to achieve peace in mindanao. no wonder the armm was a failed experiment. Its leader is a childish old man who throws tantrums when he can’t get what he wants.

  • dwenzki

    It is quite shameful for a former rebel like Misuari, a man who was given a golden chance to lead and pursue peace among his people, is now making such a statement which is totally contradictory to what peace is all about. Who’s the lesser of the two evils then??  Just like many of us, I think this peace agreement  will have have an uphill struggle before it succeeds. I was and I still am a bit pessimistic  about this peace accord.  But at the end of the day, it is not I who decide. The people of Mindanao, if they really want peace, should be given this chance. Build trust among yourselves and you will live in peace. Hope lessons are learned from the past…that war brings nothing but destruction of all that exists to be good.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XIDO4V2FQAQ6UPUCBXYOODPLAA drunken_master

    Dear Nur,
    If this new accord indeed fails, then it will be evident that people in Mindanao who are seeking autonomy are not capable of governing themselves. Thus no more agreement should be made moving forward, and you all should just respect the sovereignty and follow the rule of law of the Republic of the Philippines, no matter how it sucks.

    If I were you, I’d stop crying over spilled milk. You’ve had your time. If this new leader proves to be better than you and if you really want what’s best for Mindanao, the most sensible thing to do is to support the new leadership and forget your personal ambitions to make sure that there will really be peace in Mindanao. Instead of hoping for the worst, give it your best effort to make things work based on your “extensive experience”.

    – hik!


    usual warmongering talks from a disgraced leader. you had your chance, mr. misuari, but you fail your people. you wasted the defining years of your life. blame only yourself for your fading into oblivion.

  • laudkendaya

    Let us just hope that the war in Mindanao if happens is not going to be between the Philippine government and any of the two MILF and MNLF. Troublesome ideology of peace by the MNLF appears to be a greed of leadership. Give peace a chance to prosper.

    Misuari is not popular anymore.during his stay at camp domingo. it was guarded heavily by our PNP. PNP feared that  die hard followers of Misuari will rescue him there. it was nil. after several years, he was given parole thru the request of MILF. Misuari owe a debt of gratitude to the gov’t and MILF.

    As a peace loving advocate, I am always inspired like anybody in the world to see peace taking place wherever and whoever benefits from that peace.

    I am inspired by 57 OIC members, the UN, US, UK, Australia, Japan and many others who already expressed their support to the Framework Agreement.

    As mediaman, when MNLF inked the first peace agreement in 1996, I wrote very supportive stories in favor of that peace in many newspapers in Saudi Arabia both in Arabic and English one.

    The same amount of enthusiasm I also wrote story on this new agreement at least to show encouragement to those people who have been suffering from endless civil war that already killed not only innocents people but also their very future to have a decent life, proper study and education.

    So let us give a change for peace regardless of whoever made it possible at least they have done their duty, because we are also obliged to do so as responsible citizens.

    Sore loser, sweet lemon and sour grape are descriptions of Misuari who failed miserably as ARMM governor during his term. Misuari is one of the most pampered Muslim leader when Ramos was president.He is like toddler crying for candies when the jar emptied and asking for more. Enough of your saber rattling Mr. Misuari the Mindanaoans are ready for any eventuality initiated by your mercenaries or from your kalahi because all of you are one and the same -GREEDY!
