Muslim organization warns Philippines of relationship issues if they keep killing Muslims who are trying to kill them

IS-inspired militants on offensive; OIC warns of Philippines’ relations with ‘Muslim world’

AMID DISTINCT words of caution by a key Islamic organization that the Philippines could risk its relations with the “Muslim world,” militants fighting in the name of the Islamic State (IS) are escalating attacks in the southern Philippines, analysts said.

These developments have raised fears for the volatile region after its main Muslim rebel group failed to seal a peace pact with the Philippine government.

On Sunday, Feb. 28, Secretary-General Iyad Ameen Madani of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation met with Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) Chairman Alhaj Murad Ebrahim, to discuss what has become of the draft Bangsamoro Basic Law, the outcome of peace efforts between the government and the MILF, and other related concerns.

In a statement, the OIC said, “The Secretary General expressed his deep disappointment over the non-passage of the BBL which is a major step towards the final resolution of the Bangsamoro question.” The statement also called the failure of the proposed measure’s passage a “severe setback to the peace process.”

“A failure of peace process could adversely affect the good relation existing between the Philippines and the Muslim world,” the statement noted at length.

    Community cohesion issues again?
    Muslims seem to have that problem everywhere!

    • I have read stories about Ireland and Indonesia this morning. Wherever Islam is allowed to take root violence follows.

  • Oh, darn, wouldn’t want to upset them now would we? They might get so ticked off that they want to kill us and destroy our civilization.
    Waaaait a minute! don’t they already… um- Ah… Uh, oh…

    • Islam only preaches tolerance when Muslims are a significant minority. The minute the numbers reach a tipping point violence follows. When Muslims control a state all minorities are persecuted.

  • Arab colonialism through religion and the sword.

    Once Filipinos, now good Muslims, praying in Arabic and bowing towards Mecca.

    Hey, don’t the Chicoms deal with their moose limb problems using as much (maybe even more) enthusiasm as the Filipinos? Maybe this is an issue they and the Filipinos could use to find common ground when it comes to negotiating boundaries in international waters. A silver lining in every dark little cloud…

    One of my employees is a Filipino. Believe me, they hate them. They see them for what they are and they want to be rid of them. Muslims have been a force for the worse in the Phillipines for hundreds of years.

    • Yes, non-Muslim Filipinos are rather decent people.

      • Will Quest

        Canada’s immigration is even exporting Muslims from the Philippines !

    Of course the slaughter of infidels could never affect good relations with the Muslim world.

    If you’re looking for a lower form of life than the Secretary-General of the UN, look no further than the Secretary-General of the OIC.

    So, OIC is the agent/lawyer/PR advocate of IS and militant Islamo-Fascists worldwide?

    Hurry, expel them all from the U.N., and all their clients/members too.

    Ontario had Barbara Hall telling people to submit to islam and accept sharia law or you’ll incite more jihad terrorism for saying the islam is not a religion of peace .
    Don’t force them to kill you .

    Filipinos take their Roman Catholicism very seriously, in fact, even more seriously than the current pope, and will not submit to jihad under any circumstances.

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Even more cereally than the current pope is not saying much.
