A meeting of minds (and hearts)

By

Asked if, after the passage of the planned “basic law” defining the Bangsamoro of which he will be the prime drafter, Mohagher Iqbal will retire from public life, the chair of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front panel in the peace talks with the government grimaces a bit.

Peace possible

To those who ask what will define the Aquino presidency, today is a defining moment!” That was President Aquino’s spokesperson Edwin Lacierda exulting on Twitter last Sunday, minutes after the negotiating panels of the Philippine government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front signed the fourth and last annex of a proposed peace deal that would pave the way for the cessation of hostilities in Mindanao.

Pushing for peace in Mindanao

By

“When guns speak, laws are silent,” so it has been said. This is true in wars among sovereign nations. It is also true with civil strife within states, like in France, the United States, China, Vietnam and Serbia. Or more recently, in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and Syria. Human casualties, injuries, hunger, atrocities and deprivations have been the sad consequences of these bloody conflicts.

Pursuing reforms in ARMM

By

“I don’t belong to a political clan,” says ARMM (Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao) Gov. Mujiv Hataman. In fact, his exposure to politics came by way of student activism, when as a student of AMA Computer University, he became immersed in social and political causes, especially human rights, eventually joining the Philippine Alliance of Human Rights Advocates (Pahra).

There is no doubt that popular opinion has gone against the latest caper of Nur Misuari. There is condemnation all over Mindanao and the rest of the country. The Moro Islamic Liberation front (MILF) has called it anarchic adventurism and Gov. Mujiv Sabbihi Hataman of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) downplayed the religion angle, revealing how the leaders duped some of these “rebels” into joining it

Reminiscent of the British policy that brought about World War II

Last year, when the Moro Islamic Liberation Front was able to wrangle the Framework Agreement on the Bangsamoro from Aquino administration representatives who want peace at all costs, we wrote the Inquirer to express our misgivings: the so-called peace talks might turn out to be a Trojan horse for the Filipino people. This is because the pact is a veritable minefield of provisions, which calls for the creation of a state within a state, in other words, a substate, all for the sake of peace.
