Honasan urges PH, Malaysia to hold talks to settle Sabah issue

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, Philippines — Senator Gregorio Honasan said the Philippines and Malaysia should talk to resolve the entry of 300 Filipino followers of the Sultanate of Sulu in the Sabah region to prevent an international incident involving armed skirmishes.

“I think, both governments should sit down, and jointly help diffuse the situation, which if left unattended to, might become more complicated because of an armed confrontation,” Honasan said.

Honasan also called on Sultan Jamalul Kiram III to recall his brother, Rajah Mudah, back into the Philippines.

Rajah Mudah, in an earlier report, said that he will only follow orders from his older brother.

Sultan Kiram III, in an earlier report in the Philippine Daily Inquirer, said the royal decree that he ordered for his brother was not about war, and that he sent his brother to Sabah as an exercise of their historic, ancestral and sovereign right over Sabah.

Honasan said that the Sultan must be made to realize that his order has not been helping the government in its foreign and security policies.

“He must be made to realize that these have become more complicated,” Honasan added.

“It is time for the government to clarify these with the Sultan of Sulu and if these go out of proportion, it is a problem that we do not need,” said Honasan, who was in the city to join the regional convention of the Philippine Guardians Brotherhood, Inc.

    As a han chinese superior to our lowly Philippino-chinese countrymen, it is time to send all Philippino-chinese from chinese ghettos in Manila’s chinatown to Hainan island and claim them as part of the Filipin.  In case the chinese government refuses and kills them all, the Filipin government must send Philippino-chinese in batches armed with chemical weapons packed in fortune cookies.  The type of chemical weapons must be chinese in origin like SARS virus or ebola virus.  This way Hainan authorities will secede the islands to the Filipin government.  In turn, the Filipin government must reciprocate the Philippino-chinese’s bravery by sending them all to Hainan Islands.  Senator Honasan can be appointed as their Prime Minister and Teresita Ang See as trusted nanny of PM Honasan’s children.  

    I’m calling all lowly Philippino-chinese like PurpleDaisy13, dakuako (aka AFPako), Matt Lee, Topolcats, Iris, and other opium contaminated Philippino-chinese to prepare for the exodus to Hainan Island.  PM Honasan will take care of you there.  Thank you.

    Someone has the initiative to regain their territory and surely this government will discourage the move and maybe even sell out the sultanate for free. The Philippines possibly does not deserve the South China sea territories as well.
