Misuari to seek OIC help on Sabah crisis; urges Aquino to resign

Former Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) leader Nur Misuari

MANILA, Philippines—Former Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) leader Nur Misuari said they will go to the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) to seek help in filing a case with the International Criminal Court for the continuous crackdown against the Sultan’s people in Sabah.

In an interview with Radyo Inquirer Wednesday, Misuari said he believed that the Philippine government is now allying with Malaysia “in a joint action to massacre our people in Sabah.”

Currently, Misuari said there are about 1.5 million Tausug speaking people in Sabah.

At the same time, he called on President Benigno Aquino III and all government officials responsible in bungling the Sabah situation to resign.

“They are using their power as government officials to conspire with a foreign power against their own citizen and that is bad,” Misuari said.

Last Tuesday, Misuari criticized Aquino for siding with Malaysia. During the interview, he also denounced Foreign Affairs Secretary Alberto Del Rosario for agreeing to brand the Sultan’s army in Sabah as terrorists.

The DFA chief, however, denied the allegation.

“They are only carrying small firearm to protect themselves and here the Malaysian forces ordered airstrike against these people. That is our land in the first place,” he said pointing out that the land was under lease for 99 years.

The solution is not to use coercion but to encourage both parties to sit down, Misuari said. However, with Del Rosario assuring the Malaysian government that they will use the full force of the law is encouraging the conflict.

“Do not massacre your own people,” Misuari said.

    Nur Misuari should be in jail for pocketing billions of pesos when he was the head of the ARMM.  This AxxHOLE lived as a king with his kawatan clan when he was in power.

    He’s somehow involved in this.  Misuari and the MNLF spokesman have been using the media to engage in psywar tactics.  They would announce that thousands of Moros are on their way to Sabah and slipping through the navy ships when in fact thousands of Moros already live in Sabah.  I don’t know if it’s a diversionary tactic or if its just meant to scare or discredit the Malaysians.

    Misuari should go back to teaching in UP to make himself productive. He has no business on this.He’s just a bitter corrupt leader expelled by his former ally, Malaysia.

      Not only Misuari was expelled by his former ally, Malaysia he was also expelled from the leadership of MNLF by his fellow Moro cadres. Misuari is nothing today but an old-man, spent force bullet — laos ka na Misuari!

    Misuari is selling himself again. Only Filipinos can demand their president to resign. Misuari according to himself is not a Filipino. He has been fighting the Phils govt. for decades to separate from Phils. so should not have a single right to demand resignation of Aquino. He should by the way look the other way and see why his Malaysian benafactors are not listening and supporting him anymore. Looking on how Misuari play his game both Muslims & Christians should consider him the no. 1 TRAYDOR in the Phils.

    ASK NOT WHAT THE COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU BUT ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY BY JFK. ANG HIRAP DITO SA MGA MNLF AT MILF AY GUSTO MUNANG MAKIPAGPATAYAN BAGO MAGKAROON NG PEACEFUL TALKS. HINDI NILA INISIP NA MARAMIMG MAAAPEKTUHAN. GANYAN ANG NANGYAYARI NGAYON SA SABAH. MAY PROTOCOL ANG ATING GOBYERNO AT ITO AY PEACEFUL NEGOTIATIONS. PAKAININ NI MISUARI AT NI KIRAM ANG MGA NAAFFECTUHAN SA SABAH ISSUE. NASAAN NA SILA NGAYON AT KUMAKAIN NG LIMANG BESES ISANG ARAW? DAPAT AY PAREHO KAYONG NASA SABAH AT TIGNAN NATIN KUNG ANO ANG MANGYAYARI SA INYO DOON.

    Ingat sa mga may dugong MAKAPILI.

    Wikipedia or google “MAKAPILI” and “Filipino collaborators with Imperial Japan” at “Benigno Aquino, Sr.”.

    The Kirams have been misguided by Misuari whose own personal ambitions leads him to make mischief instead of peace.

    Nur Misuari is an intellectual figure who served as UP Professor during his younger days. I cannot understand the comments generated by this news item which seem to undermine his wisdom on matters that principally deal with our patriotic fervor especially at this time that lives of our brother Filipinos who are in Sabah are subjected to the worst kind of maltreatment unimaginable in civilized world. Take for instance the case were crackdowns against longtime residents in Sabah were done by Malaysian police in most abusive manner imaginable where people who tried to present documents as evidence to prove their legal stay in Sabah the said documents were torn to pieces right in their face, a brazen insult that knows no explanation except that they are drunk of power because they know they have all the military might at their command with fighter jets and ground forces equipped with high powered firearms on call. And to think this is done far away from the restricted area they called the “battle zone” were the followers of Kiram are now helplessly holed up. The reaction shown by the P-Noy administration against this maltreatment of Filipinos in Sabah and the wanton display of arrogance and the killing of some Filipinos there who were asked to run as fast as they can and they were mercilessly shot to death like stray dogs is totally outrageous. No right-thinking Filipino will condone this kind of unpardonable ruthlessness! I appreciate the boldness of Nur Misuari to rightfully express his highly indignant blast against those who are supposed to take concern of the precious lives of our innocent brother Filipinos viciously killed in Sabah. When a U.S. Marine was involved in a rape case in our country, he was not abandoned by the US government. And all kinds of support was given to him because the American government realized the importance of supporting its people to protect the dignity of the American wherever he may be, and to let the wheels of justice take its course in whatever controversy.

    Hahaha, Misuari’s turning into more and more of a joke every day.

    Apparently for him, not answering a letter is far, far worse than causing 200 of your followers to die and subjecting thousands of Filipinos to potential abuse and unemployment.

    What a clown.
