Malaysia has no respect for PH

A+
A
A-

No matter how strong Malacañang protests the abuses committed against Filipinos in Sabah in the aftermath of the gunbattle between Malaysian security forces and men of the Sulu sultan, it will just fall on deaf ears.

Why? Because Malaysia thinks the country owes it a debt of gratitude for brokering the peace talks between our government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).

Since President Noy has sided with Malaysia instead of the Sultanate of Sulu over the latter’s Sabah claim, Malaysia takes this as a license to abuse Filipinos in the contested island-state.

* *  *

If Malaysia has any respect for the Philippines at all, it should have allowed a Navy ship sent to Sabah to ferry Filipinos fleeing the violence that erupted there.

The Navy ship could not enter the Malaysian-Philippine border to undertake a humanitarian mission.

That’s how much Malaysians look down on us.

We are being bullied by a neighbor because we don’t have the means to fight back.

Things would have been different if we had the military strength to match Malaysia’s, but we don’t.

* *  *

Malaysia apparently thinks that since the Philippines cannot handle its Moro insurgency problem that it had to seek Malaysia’s help, how could this country stand up to its neighbor that flogs its citizens in Sabah?

The Philippines is like the parent who can’t do anything while bully Malaysia beats up his children.

Develop your muscles first before you can even confront me over the beating of your children, the muscle-bound bully tells the weakling parent.

* * *

If Malaysia thinks that applying strong-arm tactics against the Tausugs (Muslims from Sulu and Tawi-Tawi) in Sabah will weaken their resolve to fight, it doesn’t know the Tausugs.

Fighting is a way of life for the Tausugs.

Malaysia should know that since it supported the Tausugs in fighting the government of Ferdinand Marcos in the 1970s and 1980s.

* * *

The new director of the Bureau of Corrections is retired police general Franklin Jesus Bucayo.

A member of Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Class 1981, Bucayo was a police regional director in the Ilocos provinces before he retired.

As host of a public service show, I dealt with Bucayo when he was still a major in the defunct Philippine Constabulary, and I found him a very efficient worker.

The corrections bureau will certainly benefit from Bucayo’s vaunted efficiency.

        Such condescending attitude is usually found in people with low self-esteem, low morals and low intelligence, so they overcompensate by using hatred as a weapon. I bet you can’t even find a woman to date. Or even afford one.

        Many a time when I was in Dubai or Doha…Arabs treated me like I was their maid. Once I was at the counter in Louis Vuiiton, an Arab lady elbowed me thinking I was someone’s chaperon. I blasted her for being rude and she answered me this ” I am sorry…I thought you were Filipinos!!”

        See…any flat nose, brown skin asian guy in Arab countries is considered Pinoy.

      • Dawn Dare

        Don’t patronize yourself. They were elbowing you because you looked and smelled like a turd.

    Malaysians would only look down on Filipinos because of economic reasons. Malaysians can talk of hiring Indonesians or Filipinos as their laborers and that Filipinos are getting to be expensive to hire now. Do we hire Indonesians or Malaysians in the Philippines?
    Sino ang laborer nila sa Luzon, that’s right kaya ganun ang trato nila sa whoever group that is kasi marami sa kanila katulong. Kapwa Pilipino pero iba ang trato dahil sa economic status difference. Kahit kalalawigan nila, pinagtatawanan nila dahil mas mayaman sila at marunong silang magTagalog because they can afford to go to school in Manila. Just listen to Zubiri make fun of them people, on how they speak, tsk tsk tsk and that’s his people.

    “Develop your muscles first before you can even confront me over the beating of your children, the muscle-bound bully tells the weakling parent.”
    Gee Ramon, I wish that Claudine, Raymart, Pinky Atilano could tell that to your weakling parent after they beat you at the airport.

  • TEAM PNOY

    There are only about 28 million Malaysians and yet the land area of Malaysia is bigger than the Philippines. Their economy is definitely better than the Philippines. There is nothing that the Philippines should envy about Malaysia. 

    Malaysia almost destroyed their virgin forest in exchange of a single species of palm tree for their massive palm oil industry. 

    They have bad system of favoring bumiputeras. The Economist called it “racially discriminatory” designed to favor bumiputras 

    Malaysian bumiputera or bumiputras are lazy, hence you do not often see Malaysians cleaning toilets, servings as cooks, etc. Bumiputras receive a lot of perks from the government.

    The Malaysian economy is really being driven by the Chinese and huge investments from the mainland China, the Southern Indians also help a lot in their white and blue collar industries. 
    As of 2007, Chinese Malaysians dominate the professions of accountants, architects and engineers while Indian Malaysians dominate the professions of veterinarians, doctors, lawyers and dentists

    The Chinese- and Indian- Malaysians are treated as second and third class citizens, while in fact these people are the ones who built and is building what Malaysia is today. 

    The native Malays – Bumiputras – are the first class. Bumiputras are the ones elected to the government, civil and armed services are reserved for the Bumiputras.

    But, with this kind of social classes, Malaysia is a time bomb waiting to explode. Wait till the Chinese- and the Indian- Malaysians revolt against the Bumiputras. It is going to be total chaos. mark my words.

    • zatt2020

        My friend, you are correct if you are talking about the present day context.

    Disagree with the accusation you made to Malaysia. I believe that if Malaysia is being a bully, they would have attack Sulu who came illegally to the Malaysian territory within the first week itself. I am looking this matter over neutral point and disagree with the way Sulu tries to claim that  territory. If what Sulu claim is true, they should have brought up the matter in front of UN International Court of Justice (http://www.icj-cij.org/homepage/) . If you do want to claim what is yours, then why do you have to come to someone house with a guns and start firing bullets to their official? Imagine 200 mens with speed boats come to the United States to claim Florida with heavy assault riffles, do you think the Obama Administration would let them land and stay there for a few weeks and later firing shots to the navy? I would say that’s fairy tale my friend. Anyway, Malaysia gave you ample of time to leave and stated clearly no intention to hold any kind of talk, therefore the Sulu should leave and file claim to the international organization. Malaysia is kind enough to let you stay for over 3 weeks. Do you think 200 mens can simply come to the United States without visa and stay there for 3 weeks? Hell No. You would get kick out the moment you land. Sulu would have better chance of getting Sabah through a peaceful claims at the international court. 

    Second, I dont understand why would Malaysia would want to let the Philippine’s navy to come with their ship ? This is war, the Philipine’s navy might come to Malaysia and in the end got hurt and causes a bigger of problems to the war. Or the navy might come and get involved directly in the war. This war is  between Malaysia and the Sulu and at the same time Philipine’s government wanted to prevent further conflict, to maintain economic ties with the Malaysian and thus they sided with the Malaysian. Furthermore, the government cant defend the Sulu because what ever they did is wrong!

    This is 2012, you dont solve problem with aggression or fighting blindly in 20th century. Theres an International Organization for Christ sake to handle territorial conflicts! Tausugs need to realize that war would not bring them anything. I realize many Filipinos been saying that the Tausugs would never stop fighting and this is not the end. But you have to realize that any government would never let their country in danger. Malaysia would attack Sulu and defend their country anytime, just like Americans/Russians/Chinese. 

    • Jonathan Lim

      Malaysia would not have any qualm to project their firepower into Phil territories if need arises. We will make sure they do.

  • http://pedestrianobserver.blogspot.com/ Political Jaywalker

    LOL…. can’t believe the ignorant comment here, but then again that is exactly why they are ignoramuses is that they don’t know what they are yapping about. Fool, Malaysians had continuously refused to go to the ICJ and that is exactly the reason why the Sultanate followers went to Lahad Datu at the risk of their lives took a stand to get both governments attention and the UN.

    They have been ignored and neglected for decades and also continually being out of the loop or not even consulted in the peace process that left the Sultanate’s followers with no choice but to embark on a suicidal mission. While I don’t agree with their “intrusion” they have my respect for taking a stand and principle, while at the same time detest the inhumane war freak response of the Malaysian leaders who are themselves also responsible in the 50 years and counting Mindanao conflict.

    Sending a jet fighter to bomb enemy position complete with armored tanks and 7 battalions of army regulars to fight 235 men and women with 35 of them armed perhaps can’t be classified as  a bully, but maniacal war crazed freaks when what was needed was police action.

    “Things would have been different if we had the military strength to match Malaysia’s, but we don’t.”
    The last time I checked, PH was a country of 90 millions. And Malaysia was less then 30 millions.

    but many commentators from PH thought PH is a country of slum & slaves.

    It’s fair if you don’t like China, but you should learn from her. There, a nation of 1.3 billion, but 10x POORER percapita than Japan & US… But you see, she stands up straight, never yield on her principles. This is about PRIDE & HONOR, and single-mindedly struggle for the prosperity of her countrymen.

    Deficit of Honor & Pride is the most problematic illness of PH, the sickman of Asia.

        Marcos became more
        aggressive in the country’s territorial claim that he organized a so-called
        “Operation Merdeka (Freedom)” in 1967 to train and inject Filipino Muslim
        commandos into the territory to organize their brethren there into a Sabah
        independence movement, that would eventually join the Philippines. The
        operation though was aborted when then Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. exposed it,
        claiming that he had no choice in doing so as the Muslims (14 to 48, according
        to different reports) who were being trained by Army Special Forces in
        Corregidor island were executed in January 1968 when they mutinied, allegedly
        upon realizing that they were going “to fight their fellow Muslims.”

        Aquino dubbed it the “Jabidah Massacre” (for the name of the Muslim commando
        unit that was being formed) although a UP academic, Arnold Azurin, claimed
        after his detailed research that it was a myth, deliberately propagated in the
        demonization campaign against Marcos during that period by the anti-Marcos
        Lopez media. While Aquino presented to media one witness (wounded at the knee),
        not one corpse of the alleged Muslim young men executed was ever found, and not
        one relative emerged seeking redress. 

        Strangely also, the idealist anti-Marcos military man Victor Corpuz, who was
        among the Special Forces officers in Corregidor then had not publicly confirmed
        that there was a “massacre.”

      • TGM _ERICK

         So it was a myth.  Mahathir was  tricked by Pnoy into playing against Marcos.  The result, MNLF was born with the aid Of Mahathir’s goverment in exchange of deposing Marcos for Ninoy and our government relinguishing our claim for Sabah which Marcos did. There is nothing that would stop Ninoy to becoming a president!

                realistically, if you have a neighbor, you do not respect, that can wipe you off the face of the earth in short notice,   would you not at least worry about that possibility ? maybe not if you are Tausug, right ?

    Sir Mon — First, it is the Malaysians who started the shooting. The Kiram group only fired back.  The cruelty of the Malaysians to the Pinoys have been quietly going on for the past 30 years with nary a peep from our past and present government.   If the Philippines Armed Forces cannot even stand up to a small state like Malaysia eh sino pa katapat natin. We have already cumulatively spent trillions in pesos for our Armed Forces and the too expensive Phil Military Academy and we cannot even make porma to the Malaysians? This current honest but incompetent administration even accepted the Malaysian brokering the Peace with the Muslim group that has NO Claim on Sabah which was not noticed by the Higly Educated group of Deles and now Justice Leonen. Worst is Honest Noy is clueless on all these Sabah Claim things that’s why he keeps on signing any document presented to him about the peace process kuno.

        Raja Muda and his group were staying in Tanduao in order to call the attention of Malaysia, for the latter to send emissaries with whom Raja Muda could start negotiations on behalf of the Sultan of Sulu. The group’s food supply ran out. Two Filipinos were dispatched to buy food, but they were waylaid and gunned down by the Malaysian police. Then, the Malaysians launched their attack on the unsuspecting Filipinos, who had to fight back in self-defense. So, Mr. Tulpo’s statement was true and correct. It was the Malaysians, who started the aggression, the hostilities, and the bloodshed.

    Many of the bloggers here still dont get the point. It was the men of the Sultan who “invaded” Sabah, fully armed and ready to die according to their boss. I am not siding with the Malaysians but given the fact that more than 200 armed Tausogs roamed that part of Sabah, what will the Malaysian authorities do? The same way we will do if we see throngs of foreign armed mercenaries trying to take a piece of our land without notifying what their intentions are. The natural instinct is to defend your territory because you see these goons roaming the streets. I am a Pinoy but what Kiram’s men did was illegal. Tulfo is trying to energize and heat the flame of the conflict by constantly telling us that the Tausogs will fight to the death. Common you idiotic Tulfo, the brother of the Sultan had a communication with Roxas and they agreed that Kiram’s forces must withdraw voluntarily. Si Tulfo lang talaga ang mainit ang ulo. Kung matapang ka Tulfo at ang mga nagtatanggol doon sa mga nanlusob sa Sabah, go ahead, pumunta kayo sa Sabah at giyerahin ninyo ang Malaysia. War will not solve everything. Walang ibubunga ang digmaan kung hindi perhuwisyo, loss of lives at marami pang iba. Diplomasya ang kailangan dito!

    • dakuimongutin

      You are dead wrong! Guerilla warfare cannot be defeated as demonstrated by the Afghans against Russia & America with Vietnam. Those equipments the Malaysians had shown, the AFP had and much better because some are tracked-armored vehicles not with tires. The Malaysians hand not fought a war ever since, thus, had no real combat experience, they are like the Libyans which has planes that cannot fly, ships that cannot go to sea and tanks that cannot even crossed a bridge as the saying goes. The strategy of guerilla warfare is to retreat and hide when attack and attack when the enemy is weak or at rest. The war on Sabah is not finished, it just began a conflict of attrition of ambuscades, assasinations and destructions for years to come.

    The president is acting along diplomatic channels.  He is not siding with Malaysia.  Why drag Malacañang in this private activity of the Tausugs? Now that they are doomed to be crushed in their offensive, they are now calling the president for help and worse, criticize president’s move which does not favor their whims.  Malacañang’s move is just right. Withdraw from Sabah then Malacañang will take over with the negotiations.  Ownership of Sabah by the sultanate is not a question.  I think our country will side with the Kirams, as long as moves are decided not by war freaks. With the sultanate’s offensive move, do we think Malaysia will entertain the tausugs?  Warriors as they are but Malaysia has the military might, stronger than ours.

Kung lahat ng writer/reporter eh kagaya ng style ni Tulfo,sigurado akong “within 24hrs” giyera tayo!

  • jinx

    Because Mon Tulfo’s ego was shattered by what happened in Sabah contrary to his expectations, he is now targeting his blame on all peace-loving people. He had been making provocative remarks, citing the fearless Tausugs and their skill in fighting.  But what he is seeing now is a direct opposite- a bloody manhunt for his fearless Tausugs.  Frustrated, he vents his ill-conceived feelings towards the administration.  Why? Because it didn’t mount its armed forces to Sabah? Are you out of your mind?

    • diamond_digger

       Mon Tulfo is not out of his mind but he is certainly an “i-me-mine” person – one who could rightly become a first person awardee. Siya na lang talaga ang pinaka-magaling. He is talking a lot about the Sabah incident in an attempt to get the attention of the President, hoping to take the place of Secretary Carandang who was rumored to be stepping down. Kaya, ganun na lang ang sobrang pagpakitang gilas. Poor Mon!

    That is very harsh accusation Mr Tulfo that  President Noy has sided with Malaysia instead of the Sultanate of Sulu. Why don’t we tell the truth that the president is protecting the general welfare of the people by balancing his act to avoiding diplomatic row with Malaysia. Why say something not correct that will inflame the public,  when the president actual did was to protect the majority of Filipinos working or living in Malaysia by persuading the sultanate to withdraw …and then discuss the issue in peaceful environment.. in which the later rejected.

  • https://me.yahoo.com/a/iV0XkkNontlsHWTkG2jcuz.PB64A#6b054 F alonso

    Pnoy acted just like a ECHO of Malaysian statements to the Philippines. Pnoy cited in his recent campaigns that he advised Kiram to come over and discuss about the issue in exchange for Kiram’s men to lay their arms.But actually Pnoy shut up his door to Kiram for a possible negotiation.Pnoy deliberately sold us to the Malaysians while confusing us back home.

  • JasonBieber

    How can Malaysia respect the Philippines when they see that the Philippine President doesn’t care enough about his own people? The issue started because the PH President ignored requests and letters from the Sultan of Sulu and when the Sultan tried to let his voice be heard, PNoy appeared to have sided with the Malaysians.

    Certainly, what the Sultan and his people did were not right but to completely side with the Malaysians the way PNoy did was pretty harsh for those Filipinos in Sabah.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_4C2SFYIH52Y2KR7QPZPHJO2XQQ sl1

      one sided talked!

      • JasonBieber

        Exactly! PNoy has decided to side with the Malaysians before siding with a certain group of Filipinos. it doesn’t make sense.

        PNoy should have properly communicated with Kiram about his claims to prevent matters from escalating the way it did.

      • Akang

         He did plead to the Kirams to withdraw before the hostilities, only to be ignored. Now that things are getting tough for the Kirams, can you reasonably expect PNoy to do wonders for him.

      • Aramco Bi

        Many chances remain on how to punish Malaysia for abusing its landlord (Sulu Sultanate).

      • Akang

        Yeah? Like what? Swearing and threatening in this forum? Gimme a break.

      • Grammar Nazi

        You just wait and see. The MNLF and MILF trained in Sabah. What makes you think that after gaining power in Mindanao, the Filipino Muslims will not take back what is rightfully theirs? ;)

      • JasonBieber

        PNoy did not plead the Kirams. Don’t make that up to gain some sort of adulation for PNoy…PNoy started with ignoring then he proceeded to make threats to Kiram.

      • Akang

        “The Philippine government, he added, had asked the group to return home to discuss their ownership claim over Sabah, but even after ground skirmishes with Malaysia’s police commandos kicked off last Friday, the Sulu militants insisted on staying put.

        “We have asked them to come back. If you value your life, you know what to do,” he said, according to Twitter posts of his quotes by Philippines TV network ABN-CBS News.”

        Sad isn’t it? It was quoted by your own national TV and yet you choose to deny it.

        But then, why let facts get in the way of a good story.

      • JasonBieber

        What are you talking about? You must believe that Santa Claus still exists if you believe any of that. For 3 years Kiram and his people were ignored by PNoy and all of a sudden there was a tweet to come home? What, does Kiram have a twitter too twittering to his people in Lahad Datu while they shoot and hash tag each other. Come on!

      • Akang

         OK, you’re saying tweet from Philippine TV can’t be trusted.

        As far as the Kirams go, there are so many conflicting statements coming from their gang you don’t know who to believe.

      • JasonBieber

        Things could have been resolved had PNoy sat down with the main Kiram and communicated with him properly. Instead, he ignored and lost letters and blamed it on others.

    • Ayumi Water

    Don’t expect the Malaysian PIGs to respect anyone. 

    Historically, the Malaysian PIGS have been a RACISTS and will be forever. That was what they have done to their own people of Chinese decent and who are now the Singaporeans. Look at how the Malaysians envy the Singaporeans now but they still can’t live to the fact they are now lower in class compared to the Singaporeans whom they laughed at and expelled.We must strengthen ourselves and unite to counter all those foreigners who look down on us. 

    • Akang

       Another humorous work of fiction. Malays, Chinese and Indians live peacefully with each other whilst in the Philippines, Bangsamoros and Tagalogs like nothing better than to kill each other.

      • Aramco Bi

        You are next, hung hang!

      • Akang

         promises, promises.

      • Ayumi Water

        Of course, as long as Malays can enjoy university and job admission quotas, etc. etc. everything’s fine.  That system of freebies have been working for decades.  As long as you get things easy, you leave the Chinese and Indians alone to make money, everybody happy.  If only we had the same proportion of non-Bumis to support us in the Philippines, we can follow Malaysia’s example and prosper, right?

      • Akang

         Those racial preference policies are being eradicated. In fact most middle class Malays want this to be done with as they serve only to benefit those close to the ruling party and not to the Malays in general.

        There are no freebies that can be abused. In fact Government Grants for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME’s) are largely enjoyed by the non Malays as Malay participation is about 20%.

        I always believe that race do not count in driving yourself to success. It’s the effort that you put into something that you want to achieve that counts.

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/S6Z55DLPRQDP2AE6O2HA47L7J4 Farah

        I agree. Im Malay and I’ve never benefited from such policy. Most middle class Malays dont need them to succeed.

      • Akang

        I suppose you are stating that the Indians and Chinese are generating income for the country and leave the Malays to enjoy the fruit of their labours.

        If the system is so oppressive, I wonder why there’s no mass exodus of chinese and indians from Malaysia. Infact, there is a net immigration inflows to Malaysia from Philippines, Indonesia, Myanmar and Nepal. Why? So that they can further enrich the Malays?

        The system may not be perfect, but it has to a certain extent, works…

      • Ayumi Water

        That’s an extreme take. To clarify, as long as Malays don’t feel like losers in their own country, there would be less ethnic tensions, if any. No ethnic tension + minorities driven to succeed = good business = money keeps flowing in. Who doesn’t want a piece of that action, too?

        Have to give you guys credit for keeping everyone from rioting. Those days were pretty wild. Sure beats our lame picnics along EDSA that we call revolutions.

      • Akang

        I guess. But the credit is not ours. I grant that it was the intention of the Govt to even the playing field a bit, as you put it: not to become losers in their own country, with the university quotas and so on..

        But market forces rules.

        Job admission quotas are now non-existent. If employers are forced to take the incompetent grands, they will do business elsewhere.. Similiarly, quotas for uni admission is self defeating. Though it still exist to a certain extent, all it serves is to deteriorate the rankings of those uni and ignite the private university industry which is now booming here.

        Certain policies that were supposed to benefit Malays are abusive. even the Malays have long realized that. Thus the introduction of “1Malaysia” this and that, signifying retreat from the oppresive policies towards a fairer regime that rewards merit.

It is through good deeds by a society, through economic and military`s responsible use by a given country and in this case our very own Philippines. Now, tell me, does the Philippines already earned the respect of her neighbors? How about even our closest friend US, we like to lambast them but at the same time ask them to police our country`s territory? How can we be respected to stand on our own to fight our own battle if we can`t even protect our own territory. How can this country be respected if our country suffered debilitating corruptions for years, reducing much of the citizenry into deep poverty. Is there respect in that kind of behavior? We need our AFP to get strong but we did not spent enough money to it since 1997 enacting of the first AFP modernization, now how can China earn our respect (or how can the Philippines earn China`s respect like what Japan is doing now, giving China a headache) if we can`t even retake our lost Scarborough shoal, the 2nd territory in our possesion forcibly taken without even a fight…that`s pathetic and don`t even expect to get respected by Malaysia in this case. Try to look inward in our society`s conscience and find the answer to our age old dilemma…why other countries are failing to respect us as a people, as a country, etc .It`s no big deal. Do you want respect? then work for it deep within yourselves…by respecting yourselves first.

      Correction, pls. Sabah doesn’t belong to Malaysia. There’s no need to defend it. Besides, Malaysia is only renting Sabah from the Sultanate of Sulu. Sabah is under lease by Malaysia. The 300 armed followers of the Sultan of Sulu didn’t intrude in the Malaysian territory. They only revisited Sabah to make their presence felt from the land that was grabbed by Malaysia. Perhaps, you’re reading Malaysian history, not PH history.

    I agree with Mr. Tulfo that Malaysia looks down on the Philippines and its people.  For many decades, it is the country deciding and shaping the Bangsa Moro under the guise of friendship and threat of disunity in Asean.  The fact is that it is unwilling, legally, historically, by contract and all, to give up Sabah because of the territory’s rich natural resources, only employing jobless Filipinos with paltry remuneration but inhumanly treated, unlike their own citizens.  Sabah forms part of indigenous and ancestral lands that are explicitly outlined in the Philippine Constitution.

    On the other hand, the treatment of Malaysia of “second class citizens” in their own homeland is outrageous and calls for humanitarian and international intervention as it is a violation of human rights.  Malaysia had dipped into Muslim affairs too much, it had determined the fate of Muslim Filipinos for too long!  Witness the Jabiddah Massacre, the MNLF to fight against the regime of Marcos and now the MILF under the guise of brokering for peace which this government so innocently allowed at the price of its own sovereignty and unity of the nation because Malaysia was allowed too much leeway to intervene in Muslim Mindanao!  It was Ninoy’s opposition which led to that ominous massacre at Corrigedor Island and it’s his son Pnoy who is in the habit of Noynoying when faced with a problem of great magnitude.  How many letters need be sent to Pnoy to convince him that he is playing into the game Malaysia wanted to do, just to hold on to Sabah?  Meantime, Filipinos are starved, short of food from the territory the country owns at the intervention of a “friendly neighbor”!

    • Kamarul Azhar Azmi

      Well Pinoy like you that make us Malaysians look down upon Filipinos generally. First of all, by unilaterally claiming that Sabah is part of the Philippines in your constitution does not earn any recognition from the international community. Second of all, these Filipinos on Sabah, mostly Pilaks, meaning Filipinos without proper documentation. They fled Sabah because of the fear that they might be apprehended by the Police for not having any document to reside there. Once you are apprehended without documents in Malaysia, you have no rights whatsoever. You can’t say you are a refugee, because you are not registered with UNHCR. You are basically just alien. So what kind of rights do you think these people will have in the hands of Malaysian Police? And with the current situation in Sabah, it is just right for the Malaysian Police to suspect every illegal immigrant there for the purpose of security control. The Malaysian Police have to crack down on the entire support system of the Sulu gunmen. If you are a Malaysian policemen, what would you do? Would you just let undocumented people roam around without taking any action to apprehend and question them?

  • Rovingmoron

    Sa lahat ng sinabi ni Mr. Tulfo, dito ako paniwala. If Malaysia doesn’t have any respect for the Philippines, especially the thousands of refugees now living in Sabah, then the Philippines must not also respect the Malaysians in the Philippines. It’s as simple as that. Perhaps,. the P-Noy administration can start removing all Malaysians in the Philippines, including its ambassador, and send them all back to Malaysia. Who cares? For one, Malaysia doesn’t respect human rights. And I think it’s about time that the United Nations should start to investigate on how the Malaysian security forces violated the human rights of the Filipinos in Sabah.

    If the MNLF fighters regroup themselves, the Malaysian security forces are no match to the Tausug armed fighters. How much more if the Philippine military and the police will fight alongside the MNLF against the Malaysian forces? This does not include the MILF fighters. However, if this Sabah crisis can be settled diplomatically, much better.

    It is about time that ASEAN member nations must expel Malaysia because it doesn’t respect international human rights. Look at what they did to the Filipinos in Sabah. If I’m not mistaken, many of them are refugees. There is no need for Malaysia to continue becoming a member of Asean because it doesn’t want to cooperate. It is saying good things during the ASEAN summits, but doing other things when its officials turn their backs after the meeting is over.

    It is difficult if the Philippines go to war because of Kiram. Kiram claims Sabah for the Sultanate of Sulu – so he sends armed men to Malaysia without even seeking advice from the government. Now that they are being massacred it seems, Kiram and his followers are now claiming Sabah for the Philippines and want the gov’t to intervene. 

    Marcos at least claimed Sabah FOR the Philippines, and a State leader at that.

    • 1ncorruptus

      The Sultan of Sulu has been claiming Sabah for the Philippines all along.  The previous successive administrations  had reneged on their promises to the Sultan and the Tausugs to pursue the claim on behalf of the Sultanate of Sulu and the Filipino people. The present administration is even worst.  It has consistently sided with Malaysia to the detriment of the Philippine claim  and has emboldened Malaysia to perpetrate  monstrous atrocities against our Tausug countrymen and other Filipinos in Sabah.  You should  try to study the history of Sabah, and how, in the 1700s, it was bestowed, by the Sultan of Brunei as a gift, on the Sultan of Sulu for the latter’s invaluable and crucial assistance in quelling a rebellion that had lasted ten years.  I hope you would be compassionate and be able to empathize with the constant  tribulations that the Sultan and the Tausugs have been suffering over so many decades.

      Sabah had never been ceded to any nation 300 years ago or at any other time in the past.  Mr. Randy David’s false account of alleged cession should not be taken seriously. How could an impostor ever cede Sabah to any foreign state, when he was not the ruling sultan and the acknowledged ruler of Sulu and Sabah at the time when the Philippines was a colony of Spain?  Besides, the Sultan of Sulu and Sabah, at that time, was a subject of Spain’s  and as such, he could not cede Sabah to Great Britain, inasmuch as Sabah was a part of the Philippines by extension and thus, could not be ceded without Spain’s authorization.  Great Britain and Malaysia had stolen Sabah from the Sultanate of Sulu, so all the present inhabitants of Sabah are renters or lessees. Your houses were built on rented or leased land and yet, you have the gall and temerity to attempt to oust the Filipino owners from their own land and even kill them?

      The Sabah claim has never been a dead issue. Sabah has always been a part of the Philippines, but through sheer cunning, deception, machinations, and manipulations, it has been illegally annexed by Malaysia. We do not need Malaysia to prop up our economy. Its ulterior motive is too apparent for the Philippine government not to have seen through its feigned generosity and goodwill. The Sabah issue, first and foremost, has always been the motivating factor in any deals, trade, political, or any other, which Malaysia conducts or has conducted with the Philippines. Malaysia is the scourge that has surreptitiously created untold havoc and division in our land and has caused the Filipinos to fight and kill one another.

      That’s Foreign Direct Investment(FDI). FDI is actually good for the local economy. Create job opportunity and sprout supporting industry. But your government must provide enough protection(law) for the local, i.e. prohibit sales of land to the foreigner(like what has happened to Sabah :wink:). Also make foreigner do business with at least some percent shares of the local, that would help local businessman.

      • go88

        Palm oil plantation would be good for malaysian owners and the filipino elites acting as their dummies,  but it would  be a very poor choice for the welbeing of our nations  … expect massive logging, burning of what remains of our rainforest, draining of our marshes in Mindanao in brief permanent damage to Mindanao’s ecosystem. Results would be more deadly floodings -where would the water from the mountains go if the Ligusan marsh was drained?-  and massive damage from typhoons because the cover provided by the forest would vanish… apart from that expect also the displacement, harassing of the Lumad tribes whose lands would be grabbed by the palm oil companies with the help of corrupt politicians.

        That’s one of the points the public is not aware with the signing of the peace talks between the MILF and the government … because this is planned to in the MILF controled areas. Big money is involved there it will benefit only a few: the malaysians, the KKK, MILF cadres ..

        Malaysian investments beneficials for our  economy would be the  set  up of semiconductorchips productions plants in Mindanao with transfer of technology but you can dream about that happening.

Bukod po kay Ms. Winnie Monsod, sa Editor, at hindi ko po nabasa kung mayroon pang iba ay kamukha rin po ng sinasabi ni Presidente Aquino ang sinasabi ng ilang nagbibigay ng opinyon nila sa Inquirer at ang isa pa po sa kanila ay nagpro-provide pa sa Malaysia ng mga hinalungkat niyang lumang kasaysayan na di-umano ay ibinigay ng hindi naman nakaupo at hindi naman totoong sultan ang Sabah sa Britanya. Ang Pilipinas po ay kolonya at pag-aari ng Espana. Hindi po papayag ang Espana na ipamigay ng kung sinuman, sultan o hindi sultan, ang Sabah sa ibang bansa. Nakakalungkot po, pero may Malaysian journalist po ba na maglalathala sa isang Ingles na pahayagan at sa internet ng kanyang opinyon  na maaring mabasa ng mga Pilipino na tunay na nirentahan ng North Borneo British Company ang Sabah noong late 1800s at hindi totoong nai-cede ito?

Of course not because they have military strength. Use your coconut shell, if this will continue war will happen to Malaysia.

      • Steve Valentino

        Saying that Malaysia bullies the Philippines smacks of lack of self belief. Yes, Malaysia has F-18’s, Sukhoi 30’s MiG’s, Hawks, Submarines, Corvettes Frigates Main Battle Tanks etc but that doesn’t give us the right to even think of bullying anyone, more so the Philippines. Other ASEAN countries have the same but we don’t bully each other.

        Get some self respect mate and open your eyes to the fact that:

        (1) the Kiram family was never recognized by your government as the official Sultan of Sulu. Heck, they even have their own Sulu Sultanate Citizen Identity Cards. I thought they are Filipinos? 

        (2) he’s only doing it on someone’s behest, most probably Misuari. 

        (3) Malaysia actually arrested Misuari in 2002 on the Philippine Government request and extradited him to Manila where he was subsequently jailed. 

        (4) Misuari thus has a major grudge against Malaysia. 

        (5) Unfortunately, Misuari knows the Malaysian Army strengths well enough NOT TO SEND 100% HIS OWN MEN.

        Truth be told Malaysia probably supported Misuari back then most probably as he was viewed as the person most capable of bringing peace to Southern Phillipines. Unfortunately for all of us, his arrogance proved otherwise which resulted in Malaysia arresting him and dropping support for him.

        The end result of the above is the creation of sub-standard journalist wannabe’s like the author of this article creating hatred between 2 countries and Misuari laughing at you lot for actually SUPPORTING HIM NOW after all the chaos that he has done for you guys over the years.

    Well done to the author for instigating hatred between Malaysia and the Philippines. The majority of my fellow Malaysian whom does not associate the Kiram family with the Philippines. We have many friends in the Philippines and I’m sure, vice versa. 

    All that you have achieved is to create false anger and resentment between 2 great nations. Sarcastically i say “Well Done”. Such trash journalism dictates that you deserve to be what you are now, which, is probably too flattering for you. Its little wonder that the Malaysian government doesn’t allow the likes of you into the country to cover the Lahad Dato case.

       Well, if you say you are as  what you  claimed  a Malaysian, may I ask you  as to whose authority you lend upon to say and quote: ” the majority of my fellow Malaysian WHOM DOES NOT ASSOCIATE the Kiram family with the Philippines” .. …the words  WHOM DOES NOT ASSOCIATE  … is what I questioned you… because if you said  you are a Malaysian…. well, I am a Filipino and I considered  the Kirams  as FILIPINO Citizens…  and to tell you honestly, I do not believe you are a Malaysian and do not ask me why because I do not want to elaborate my thoughts … You are saying ?????

      • Steve Valentino

        Your knowledge of english is pathetic. We do not consider the actions of a few filipinos in Lahad Datu to represent the actions of the WHOLE of the Philippines. Truth be told, i am somewhat obliged to advise that you do seriously consider signing up for some proper english lessons. Just because you speak pathetic english doesn’t mean you are proficient in it.

      It is a lost cause and forever will be a silly lost cause.
      Misuari is a very happy man now as he’s managed to split Phillipnes….while we are totally united here keen to kill the last remaining terrorist scumbags from Sabah soils.

    For what Malaysia did, she has no business staying at ASEAN.  Otherwise, the Phl should get out of ASEAN which has done nothing to help.

      • Steve Valentino

        Yes. That would be really smart getting the philipines out of an economic block. Oh yes, the visa free arrangements for ASEAN members are also useless. So too on the tax exemptions which attracted fellow ASEAN countries to invest in the phillipines. The philipinnes is already an economic power house able to survive on trade with the US. The best thing for the philipines would obviously to rid itself of all these benefits of being an ASEAN member. Yes, clearly you used what you think is your grey matter and not your emotions. Take a good look around in your country. Maybe what you see is the result if years of decision making via emotions.

  • pretty_ugly_1

    The writer implies that, in order to get respect, you must have a strong military force. I think you will earn fear instead of respect. The proper way is “you have to give respect to get respect”. The Philippine government does respect Malaysia, I personally think Pnoy does a great job in this crisis. Imagine you run a government, suddenly one of your citizen committing a crime overseas, what would you do? Send your army to overrun the said country?

    The claim of Sabah is understandable, but Kiram action of invasion and the killing of Malaysian police forces should not be tolerated.

  • Daimler Altschuh

    Philippines can send a commercial ship to ferry evacuees. Why send a naval vessel? Malaysia was invaded by terrorists sent by Jamalul Kiram III. If Philippines want respect, then it should detain the terrorist leader, which is this Jamalul fella. When Malaysians hear Filipinos cheering on the terrorists, why should Malaysians trust the Philippines? In fact, it only reinforces our concern that having such a big population of Filipinos in Sabah is a threat to security, and it is best that we reduce that population by deporting many of them, especially if they are Tausugs or Sulugs or Bangsamoros, or whatever you wish to call those who originate from Southern Philippines.

    • expanding man

      not all flips support that lunatic….most of them are flips who hates pres noynoy or just plain stupid…..i for one will never side with a lunatic…..btw….rather than deporting them back…why dont you guys just kill those m@#$ers…..

    • iSay2

       No commercial shipowner in the right mind would take the risk of ferrying the evacuees other than maybe a Red Cross covered vessel. Worst their insurer may not  cover the trip. The naval vessel on standby is a light transport vessel with defensive weapons only, the malaysians know that.

  • headhunter

    You said:
    “If Malaysia has any respect for the Philippines at all, it should have allowed a Navy ship sent to Sabah to ferry Filipinos fleeing the violence that erupted there”

    You are saying Kiram terrorists who pretend to be villagers should be allowed to escape comfortably via Phillipines navy ship….? who don’t respect who here?

    You said:
    “Malaysia should know that since it supported the Tausugs in fighting the government of Ferdinand Marcos in the 1970s and 1980s.”

    Well, ungrateful Tausugs then. Because of Tirams, now Tausugs have 2 people to deal with – Phillipines and Malaysian Governments, isn’t that interesting?

      Why do you refer to the landlords as terrorists? Instead, you should be calling the Malaysians terrorists, because they annexed illegally a land on lease.

    I will not hate a single PH just because a quixotic sultan of a defunct sultanate decided to terrorise members of my community, killed 8 policemen and caused the death of two soldiers. The terrorists should all be arrested and hauled before the court. All of us, PH and Malaysians, should ensure they have a fair trial and fair punishment, in accordance to (Malaysian) law.

      THe Sultanate of Sulu is never defunct. As long as the Sultan has the ascendancy and the mandate from his people to rule them as the traditional royal leader, then the Sultanate is existent and forever will be so.

      • Lansik Mata II

        Like my “royal” house, the sultanate of sulu is defunct. There are many defunct “royal” houses in Borneo. Every Muslim worth his/her salt claims be to the descendent of Prophet Muhammed. The modern world is no place for feudal system, Emperors, Empresses, Kings and Queens are largely ceremonial. There are some dictators and juntas around but most nations are democratic.

        So dream on. I don’t care and the People of Sabah don’t care too, who cares? Please don’t share your dream with us.

    You only need to look at the pictures of our mutilated soldiers to know why it’s going to be very hard for our government to negotiate with the Suluks now. There’s also the fact that another two died when they were duped into thinking the Suluk men were ‘surrendering’ after these men raised the white flag. The pictures reminded me of the Madura – Dayak conflict in Indonesia. We are dealing with backward, barbaric and unpredictable people here, make no mistake.I just wish this so called Sultan and his followers will realise that no present day Sabahans are interested in making him their leader or leaving Malaysia to form an independent nation with this Sultan as the head. If anything, the longer the conflict goes on, the less support the Sultan and his followers get from Malaysians, Filipinos and the international community. This crisis also brings into question the suitability of the leaders of both countries in leading during times of crisis. I honestly wonder about Najib and Aquino at times and their handling of this crisis doesn’t give me much faith. We have first class infrastructure but very lax border security and patrol. All this while it was easy for Suluks to enter Sabah via Lahad Datu and this despite the well known fact that it’s not easy to tell who’s Sabahan and who’s Sulu since they look similar. We were also shocked to hear about this “Project IC” at Sabah involving our former Prime Minister. Do any of these Suluk have Malaysian Mykad/Mykid? How about our driver’s licence? Absolutely ridiculous!

    And in the middle of all the bickering and arguments, lie the poor people of Sabah. Has anyone ever thought of asking them what they want? People forget that there are more than 30 native groups in Sabah and the Suluks are not even the majority. What about the rights of the other groups like Kadazan, Bajau, Murut, Bisaya, Kedayan etc? Do they identify themselves with the Sultan?

    If Misuari is behind this, arrest him along with the Sultan for war crimes. Either the Phillipines do it or get them extradited if that’s even possible. I don’t understand how our leaders can be so indecisive at a time like this but very decisive when deciding whether to approve funding for mega projects! No wonder both countries lack respect at international level. The leaders of both countries seem to lack the courage to take stern action when necessary and are more worried about pleasing certain people.

    Get your act together or get voted out at the next election……….whenever that is.

  • Troy Medici

    It’s not even disrespect. The ruling regime in Malaysia is very well known for slow response. It doesn’t administer systematically. Many things don’t work because the bloated civil service is lazy and the mindset is one of rent-seeking. Therefore, the regime does not do things that follow international norms. It is a very corrupt regime and if it comes across as disrespectful, the worst thing is, it’s not deliberate but due to a retarded approach to everything.

    We are being bullied by a neighbor because we don’t have the means to fight back.
    Things would have been different if we had the military strength to match Malaysia’s, but we don’t.

    – This is true, so where the militant protesters and stage a rally for AFP Modernization. We badly need a strong military but sadly upto now this govt is all talk and still give meager budget for AFP. To our leaders please wake up before its too late, we need a full scale military buildup and our national security should be a top priority at this time.
