Motives and angsts
Just wondering, what is the motive behind yesterday’s explosions and encounters in Isabela City?
Here, the military wasquick to blame it on the Abus. the AFP chief recently said, only 300 Abus remain. what I can’t fully comprehend is how they can be exact in the number yet the thousands-strong AFP with billions of pesos in annual budget seem inutile in going after a band of 300?!
Here the media was quick to tag Islamic militants. Again showcasing to the Muslim world their gross ignorance of Islam. There is nothing Islamic in terror. Please put a stop to your tagging. How do you expect to win the hearts and minds the billion-strong moderate Muslims in the war on terror?
Bombing religious places and harming civilians are AGAINST Islamic teachings. Period. We condemn those who misuse Islam to sow terror, those who hijack a peaceful religion, my religion. Just as we condemn those who fan the flame of ignorance, stereotype and prejudice in the media.
