Philippines and Muslim rebels agree on preliminary peace agreement
Foxnews.com ^ | 07 Oct 2012 | associated press

Philippine President Benigno Aquino III said Sunday that his government has reached a preliminary peace agreement with the nation's largest Muslim rebel group in a major breakthrough toward ending a decades-long insurgency in the country's south.

snip...

The accord calls for the establishment of a 15-member "Transition Commission" that would thresh out the details of the preliminary agreement and draft a law creating the new Muslim autonomous region in about two years.

The rebels would undertake a "graduated program" to decommission their armed guerrilla units "so that they are put beyond use," the agreement said, without specifying a timetable.

The deal marks the most significant progress in 15 years of negotiations with the 11,000-strong Moro group on ending an uprising that has left more than 120,000 people dead and held back development in the south.

Islam, retrograde cultures and death...kissing cousins...

PEace? THis is capitulation, pure and simple. Terrorists destroy your home and then you reward them with a peace for them to build their own home next to yours.

Besides, extremists are just the secret agents of regular muslims.

a decades-long insurgency in the country’s south
... has left more than 120,000 people dead
///
you are very correct.
but i’m glad to see this on FOX.
most people, are very surprised,
when i tell them about Muslims
killing people even in Phillipines.
-
most people don’t know, Muslims kill,
EVERYWHERE they exist in large numbers.
-
Islam is seditious by it’s own words.
It is hate speech, and incitement,
by it’s own words in the Koran.
...ALL civilized nations, should ban it!

“What Philippine President Benigno Aquino ? you surrender Cebu to the Muslims ?”
_________________________________________

I have been here for four years and have yet to see a Muzie.
Just where on Cebu are all these Muslims?
To be fair, I imagine there are a few in Cebu city, and maybe even a mosque, but I am not aware of it.
It is hard to imagine them taking over such a strong Catholic country. They should be happy with their little autonomous region on Mindanao.

Welcome to Dhimmitude, Phillipines....a treaty with a Muslim is about as good as used toilet paper

Some peace agreement. This is simply surrendering a part of the Philippines to the Muslims - something that they’ll be happy with for about a week, and then they’ll want another part of the Philippines, and then another...

When savages are willing to negotiate, that’s when you know it’s time to unleash everything you’ve got against them.

Exactly.When the bad guys are willing to negotiate it means they finally realizr they are losing,so then hit them as hard as you can until they surrender unconditionally.Total surrender is the only victory that really counts. Then you disarm the savages,close down all the hate teaching madrasssas(schools) and so on.

If the rebels truly do lay down their weapons...the government should go in and wipe them out.

Any time there is “an agreement” with these mongrels, it is an admission you lost.

Remember peace in our time. Well, Chamberlain read it as peace....Hitler read it as a piece of Chekoslovakia, Poland, and whereever else whe wished to roam for a piece of.

Prediction, things will remain relatively quiet for a few months after “the agreement” and then will start up anew as the plight continues to move forth. Advice to the Phillipean government, use flame throwers to disinfect the entire region you gave up.

Alex, you and I both know they won’t be happy, they’ve gained a foothold... and their laws require them to take over.

I thought of you right away as I saw this story, I hope all is well and stays well for you.
