BANGSAMORO HISTORICAL NOTES

“BEWARE OF AQUINO GOVERNMENT’S CONSPIRACY
TO FOOL THE MNLF, OIC, MOROS AND HUMANITY.”
 – MNLF VICE-CHAIRMAN OLAMIT


DID Mamasapano INVASION UNDERMINE CAB/BBL?

After the Mamasapano invasion that contributed to the rough sailing of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) in both Houses of Philippine Congress, the brain of the Mamasapano debacle no less than President Benigno S. Aquino III has again embarked on designing another diabolical sinister conspiracy.

Using the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process (OPAPP) and the OPAPP-created-and-financed MNLF “mascot” conspirators, like Muslimen Sema, Randolph Parcasio, Jose Lorena and cohorts, the Aquino government has launched the conspiracy to fool the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF), Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Bangsamoro people and the whole of humanity.

Davao City MNLF Chairman and acting Vice-Chair of the MNLF Central Committee Abdulaziz Olamit has pointed out that the Aquino government is now using the September 2, 1996 MNLF-OIC-GRP Jakarta Peace Agreements or ‘Final Peace Agreement (FPA)’ in leaving a “legacy” of broken promise and shattered Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL). It is only but tragic that the MILF “hopefuls” have not expected the coming of the deceptive strategy.  

Following the original concept of the Comprehensive Agreement on Bangsamoro (CAB), the BBL has become a bone of contention that is a prelude to another so-called “failed experiment” by Philippine colonialism under the present Aquino watch. The Cory Aquino government-manufactured Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) was declared by his son, the incumbent chief executive, as a “failed experiment.”

Simply put, the observation of MNLF Vice-Chairman Olamit on the recently concluded presumably MNLF-OIC-GRP Tri-Partite meeting in Makati City, September 7-8, 2015, unraveled the sinister conspiracy of the Aquino government in deceiving the concerned parties to the 1996 peace agreement. The parties included the Misuari-led MNLF, OIC, both the Filipino and Bangsamoro communities and the other global stakeholders to Mindanao peace.

Interviewed by 105.9 Balita FM radio on September 10, 2015, MNLF Vice-Chairman Olamit analyzed the mysterious events surrounding the sudden holding of the September 7-8, 2015 tripartite meeting in Makati, Philippines.

It was observed that the September tripartite meet was planned and financed entirely by the Office of the Presidential Adviser on Peace Process that maliciously invited the OIC General Secretariat to continue in pursuing the unification of MNLF and MILF and vaguely to discuss the merging of the MNLF-OIC-GRP Jakarta Peace Agreements with that of the MILF-PGH Bangsamoro Basic Law. The unfolding conspiracy is to deceive the Filipino and Bangsamoro peoples and humanity that the passage into law of BBL infused with the 1996 FPA is a sure guarantee to Mindanao peace.

However, it is unimaginable how this concocted conspiracy by Malacanang and OPAPP spin-masters can achieve stability, peace and order in Mindanao?

MNLF Vice-Chairman Olamit has illustrated the glaring truth that the tri-partite meeting was without the presence of MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari or any of his official representatives. The MNLF per se was represented only by OPAPP-handpicked personalities posing as MNLF leaders, who are beholden to Malacanang’s capricious ill-motive and financial dole-outs.   

As of the present, the MILF “hopefuls” cannot expect anything concrete about the BBL except an emasculated autonomy concept similar to or less than the current farcical ARMM. The bogus ARMM has been transformed only into the “cheating capital of Philippine elections,” according to Philippine media. Also it has been used by the central offices in Manila as a down-load money making machine to siphon hundred million-worth budget for the personal use of unscrupulous corrupt national officials rather than for development project for the welfare of the people. This down-loading scheme malpractice was exposed by former North Cotabato Governor Jose Pinol.

The MNLF Vice-Chairman bewailed the fact that if the Aquino government wanted the September tripartite meeting to be “high level and official,” the OPAPP should have invited MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari or his official representative, particularly the official MNLF Peace Panel Spokesman Reverend Absalom Cerveza, to the Makati meeting. But instead the OPAPP was awkwardly represented only by its undersecretary, Atty. Jose Lorena, OPAPP-paid MNLF henchmen, such as former Vice-Mayor Muslimen Sema and Atty. Randolph Parcasio. In the past, MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari has exposed the triumvirate OPAPP “conspirators” as “traitors” to the sacred cause of the Bangsamoro people’s Jihad Fi-Sabilillah (struggle in the way of Allah).

By designing the latest conspiracy, the Aquino government has only made a fool of OIC Special Envoy Ambassador Sayed Kassem El-Masry into thinking that the tripartite meet was duly sanctioned by MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari being the official signatory to the 1996 Jakarta Final Peace Agreements.    

MNLF Vice-Chair Olamit also decried the fact that after the signing of the 1996 peace agreement and the political attempt of the Ramos government to implement the FPA in letter and spirit, the succeeding Filipino administrators totally ignored the full and correct implementation of the internationally-binding peace agreement. But they instead pursued the genocidal war against the oppressed Bangsamoro people, who have always time and again experienced the betrayal of Mindanao peace by the Philippine colonial government.

Following along the political footsteps of his predecessors, like Presidents Ferdinand E. Marcos, Corazon C. Aquino, Joseph E. Estrada and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the incumbent President Benigno S. Aquino III did nothing to implement the 1996 peace agreement. He instead focused on creating another concept autonomy based on CAB and BBL, but at the end of the day maneuvered to undermine its successful passage into law by Philippine Congress by designing the Mamasapano invasion.

The controversial Mamasapano raid on both the MILF and BIFM stronghold in Cotabato had only led to the killing of 44 Filipino PNP SAF invaders, 17 Bangsamoro fighters, 5 Muslim civilians and “4 caucasian-looking (American) soldiers,” according to BIFM source. Worse, the lone target, the Malaysian bomb-making expert alias ‘Marwan,’ who was reported to have been killed by the PNP SAF invaders, was actually shot by one of his aides. This was contrary to the PNP and media report that wanted to portrait the PNP SAF invaders as “heroes” to justify the scandalous invasion project of Malacanang.

On the ailment surrounding BBL, MNLF Vice-Chairman Olamit stressed that the MNLF would remain “passive” as its negative effect has only given the MNLF freedom fighters a moral lesson and sad experience on the Aquino government’s “tricks and deception” by including the MNLF on the issue of the bungling BBL debacle created by OPAPP spin masters and stooges.

REVEREND ABSALOM CERVEZA ON SEPTEMBER 7-8, 2015 TRI-PARTITE MEET

Aside from the MNLF Vice-Chairman, the official spokesman of the MNLF Peace Panel Reverend Absalom Cerveza has beforehand expressed pessimism regarding the holding of the September 7-8, 2015 tripartite meeting inside the Philippines.

Through a reliable source, Reverend Cerveza was informed that the September tri-partite meeting was orchestrated and initiated by some OPAPP-paid spin masters and conspirators to reconcile the gains of both the September 2, 1996 Jakarta Peace Agreements and Bangsamoro Basic Law. The simple strategy was to send a strong message to the public and humanity that the MNLF, MILF and OIC have approved the BBL passage into law as a monumental legacy of the Aquino government to achieve ‘just and lasting’ peace in war-torn Mindanao. The scheduled August 2015 deadline for the CAB-BBL passage into law by Philippine Congress just fizzled out and the Aquino government has again targeted October 2015 for its final approval and implementation. But in all probability only a totally watered-down CAB-BBL called “Basic Law of the Bangsamoro Autonomous Government” based on the Philippine Senate version promulgated by Senator Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr.

Thus, it is noted that the total emasculation of CAB-BBL is due to the Mamasapano invasion.

What is really behind the holding of the Makati September 7-8, 2015 tri-partite meeting?

Reverend Cerveza had bluntly said that the MNLF was “not too optimistic about the tri-partite meeting” because the BBL being “pushed by the MILF and Aquino government served as the primary obstacle between the MNLF and government.”

He further explained that the Aquino government has committed some areas covered by the September 2, 1996 MNLF-OIC-GRP Jakarta Peace Agreements to the MNLF break-away faction MILF’s BBL. Thus, he reasoned out,” how can this be resolved?”

He outrageously dismissed the possibility of merging the 1996 FPA to the BBL or the new bilateral version of Philippine Congress. He also pointed out that the MNLF will only entertain any government gesture for peace talks at the instance of the OIC, expressing the reality on the ground now that MNLF under Chairman Nur Misuari would not demand resumption of talks with the out-going Aquino government.

He emphasized the fact that the Aquino government has completely shown disrespect to the 1996 peace agreement. He also said that the government has even maneuvered to abrogate the tri-partite review meeting leading to the implementation of the 1996 peace agreement. The negative attitude shown by the Aquino government has given the opportunity to the MNLF leadership to establish the United Federated States of Bangsamoro Republik (UFSBR) and to declare complete independence and national self-determination from Philippine colonialism on August, 2013.

Reverend Cerveza expressed satisfaction on the diplomatic initiative of the OIC to unify the MNLF and MILF and to reconcile the differences of the mother group and its break-away faction with the formation of the Bangsamoro Coordination Council.

He also shed light over his suspicion on the hidden agenda of the tri-partite meeting stage-managed by OPAPP conspirators. He revealed that he was formally designated by MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari to head the MNLF delegation to the September meeting. But he was barred by OPAPP personnel to attend the meeting although he was the official representative of MNLF Chairman Nur Misuari, who is the “legal principal party to represent the MNLF in any MNLF-OIC-GRP tri-partite meeting being the recognized official signatory to the 1996 peace agreement.”

Thus, on the recent conspiracy of the Aquino government to derail the comprehensive settlement of the Filipino-Moro war in Mindanao, is this not a strong signal again that the betrayal of Mindanao peace has always been the constitutional mandate of Philippine colonialism?

The Luzon-based Filipino colonialist leaders, like Ferdinand E. Marcos, Corazon C. Aquino, Joseph E. Estrada and Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, had in the past betrayed Mindanao peace by continuing the genocidal war in the occupied Bangsamoro homeland.

It is recalled that the blatant colonization of the Filipino-occupied Mindanao territory was the brainchild of the Philippine Commonwealth President Manuel L. Quezon. The political and economic greed of the megalomaniac Filipino leader had given false justification in land-grabbing the ancestral Bangsamoro homeland of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan (MINSUPALA) by enacting “Legislative Act No. 4197 of February 12, 1935” otherwise known as the scandalous “Quirino-Recto Colonization Act.”   

The land-grabbing law fabricated by the Philippine Commonwealth National Assembly was again given justification on July 4, 1946 with the immoral and illegal incorporation of Mindanao, Sulu and Palawan into America-created Philippine Republic. But, ominously, the injustice and shameless land-grabbing scheme perpetrated by the unscrupulous Filipino politicians have resulted today to the continuing genocidal Filipino-Moro war in Mindanao.

Hence, tragically for the concerned stakeholders to Mindanao peace, it is observed that Mindanao war is the only key lethal weapon in perpetuating Philippine colonialism in the Filipino-occupied territory.

Apparently, most of the Luzon-based leading Filipino colonialist land-grabbers have arrogated themselves with the constitutional mandate to conduct ethnic-cleansing, terrorizing and killing the Muslim and Lumad natives as well as the concerned Christian settlers of occupied Mindanao. And the Philippine military colonialist war-mongers and war-dogs are just too trigger-happy to conduct genocide war and extermination against the Indigenous Peoples of Mindanao.

In the final analysis, in all this stark injustice and mass killing happening for decades now in Filipino-colonized Mindanao, how can the United Nations (UN), Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), European Union (EU) and other self-righteous NGOs remain indifferent and insensitive to the wickedness and cruelty of Philippine colonialism? – osm, mnlfnet.com
