MNLF Right of Reply RE: Zamboanga Crisis of Sept 2013

MNLF RIGHT OF REPLY

The genuine members of the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) is not a participant in that chaos in Zamboanga City on September 2013. The chaos was purely a large-scale squatter demolition operation by the Government of the Philippines (GPH) and simultaneously a "False Flag Operation" of the GPH to smear dirt on the face of MNLF and the Mindanao Independence Movement.

The implementers of the squatter demolition merely used MNLF actors (counterfeit MNLFs) to act as running rabbits to ignite chaos that would provide reason for the squatter uprooters to move into the designated demolition zone. The squatter demolition was long planned by the LGU of Zamboanga City under the leadership of Mayor Climaco, in line with real estate development in Zamboanga. The GPH denies the rights of the uprooted people to return to their lands and residences aftermath the chaos.

Even on this date of commenting, the uprooted people (Badjaos and Muslim minorities) are being disallowed to return to their lands -- the human rights violation issue in relation to the uprooting is what the mainstream media and the Philippine government is turning a blind eye or perhaps hiding.

For your information, Malik, Misuari, and the genuine MNLF are not participants in the planning and execution of that squatter demolition. No MNLF was killed, injured, or arrested in that incident.

Sabah, if not lease then donate to China

Our enemy's enemy is our friend. A last will and testament will prevent the enemies from benefiting over Sabah. We would rather lease Sabah to China than have it stolen. If lease agreement will not materialize and we get annihilated because of enemy intervention, we will make sure that the United Nations holds our last will and testament that donates Sabah to China, and in the end our souls will enjoy watching how China will use its strength over our enemies to control Sabah.

We shall never allow Mindanao, Sulu, Palawan, Sabah, Camiguin, and Spratleys to fall in the hands of the enemy. We will make sure that if we are defeated in battle, these lands gets donated to China - the enemy of our enemies.

Malaysia's Intervention in Philippines

SIR JOHN, WHY DO YOU QUESTION THE SINCERITY OF MALAYSIA IN HELPING THE MORO LAND?

ANSWER: Because they can actually help via direct Official Development Assistance (ODA) to Moro Land. Americans, Japanese, Europeans have ODA in Mindanao, and they don't rub elbows with secessionist movements.

The Malaysians don't need to rub elbows and play around with any para-military entities like MNLF or MILF, unless they have intention to build a secessionist army from within the Philippine Territory for the purpose of disintegrating the Philippine Territory and winning the hearts and mind of the Moro People in favor of the planned expansion of the Malaysian Federation.

PNoy Aquino will surely get electrocuted with its deal with MILF and Malaysia. But who is afraid of electrocution if the reward, whether cash or promise, is great?

While USA, Japan, and Europe provides ODA for basic services in Mindanao such as small livelihood capital, housing for the poor, healthcare, and building schools, Malaysia on the other hand invests in providing arms and ammunition to Islamic insurgents. If all good nations will cut the invisible hand of Malaysia over Philippines, it is highly probable that peace and prosperity will be achieved in Mindanao.

[COMMENT]Mohd Ameruddin Bin Ellias: If muslim moro thinks joining malaysian federation is better than being ruled by catholic phillipines, then let them decide.

ANSWER: You see, look at what Mohd is saying. RELIGION is being used as a reason to disintegrate the Philippines. Malaysia is the one brainwashing the Muslim people of Mindanao, telling them that they can't live side-by-side as neighbors with Christians. The output of that brainwashing is basically the MILF. Look at the mentality of the MILF, that's it!

SIR JOHN, WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT MALAYSIA MILITARY BUILD-UP AT THE EAST COAST OF SABAH?

ANSWER: They are saying that it is a move to enhance border control between Sabah and Sulu. You want to know the truth? That thing happening in the East Coast of Sabah is actually a Malaysian Military build-up in preparation for their invasion to Sulu and Mindanao in line with their plan to expand the Malaysian Federation.

Do you know who has the capability to repel an MILF-aided Malaysian invasion? The MNLF. We, the MNLF are the ones who can repel possibly them. Time will come that MNLF will really have to engage the MILF, regardless of religion. How about the Philippine Soldiers? Ahhh Philippine Soldiers won't move their asses, the Malaysians already hypnotized the Philippine President with rewards, unless the Philippine Soldiers remove this President before the Malaysian invades us.

SIR JOHN, HOW CAN MALAYSIA AND PHILIPPINES EXTERMINATE THE PEOPLE OF SULU AND HOW TO PREVENT THIS?

ANSWER: That's a good question, Jo. Simple. Very simple. Malaysia tightens the trade of goods between Sulu and Sabah. Philippines stops sending subsidized ships that carry relief to Sulu and tighten-up the release of government funds to Sulu. In effect, naturally, the people of Sulu will get hungry and gradually leave the Sulu islands to survive somewhere else. Without a fight, the People of Sulu will be scattered and there will be no more People of Sulu and no more Sultanate of Sulu.

The only hope to prevent the extermination of the People of Sulu is for Sulu is to unite as a people, stop the divisiveness of the Sultanate claimants, get your acts together, and let's get a good new Sabah lease deal with the highest bidder.

SIR JOHN, I AM A STAFF OF A SENATOR TASKED TO COPY AND PRINT ALL YOUR POSTS FOR HIS READING EVERY MORNING. MY BOSS ASKED ME ON WHAT IS YOUR RECOMMENDATION TO SENATE ON THIS SABAH ISSUE.

ANSWER: That's a good request. I can work with you closely on this. I want you to do two things:

(1) File a Senate Resolution advocating the proprietary rights of ownership of People of Sulu (Tausugs) on Sabah lands. The House must also have their counterpart.

(2) Open up a Senate Investigation on Malaysia's Foreign Policy. We must take a closer look at Malaysia's participation in providing killing resources to the MNLF in the past and the MILF at present. We should also investigate their immigration policy on Moro/Filipinos born in Sabah. We must get to the bottom of the so-called Malaysian Federation that many MILF is advocating. The public would also be interested to know what President Noy Aquino received from Malaysia. We should also call in the Sultan claimants and get their testimonies about why they are in the payroll of Malaysian Embassy.

ADDL QUESTION: Sir John, can you elaborate more about the need to investigate Malaysian Immigration Policy on Moro/Filipino born in Sabah?

ANSWER: In this topic, we will touch on alleged human rights violations against people in Sabah who are supposed to be dual citizens of Malaysia and Philippines. Malaysians born in Philippines automatically becomes Filipino Citizens, but Filipinos born in Malaysia (specially Sabah) are not given Malaysian citizenship status. There is such thing as foreign reciprocity. We must revise our laws here in Philippines so that Malaysians born in Philippines must not be given Filipino citizenship. If our people violate laws in Sabah and meted death penalty, we should also revise our laws here so that Malaysians who violate laws here will be meted death penalty.

ADDL QUESTION, Sir John, how about on the investigation to know what President Noy Aquino received from Malaysia. What is the relevance of this?

ANSWER: We will see about that business interests in Malaysia that are being tied-up to PNoy. That must be causing a so called conflict of interest. We will see if it is an impeachable offense. There is a brewing COUP DE ETAT right now and we need this kind of formal investigation to either implicate or clear the name of the President.

We are also interested to document the mechanics behind the 23-year existence of the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG). We have to eradicate this highly organized kidnap-for-ransom group by exposing their operators, especially those connected to high seats in government.

One of the crew of the Private Army of Jamalul Kiram III (PAJAK3) that is now being processed in Malaysian court admitted he was PAID to do a work in Sabah. It is possible that he was surprised, instead of a farm work, he ended up in the middle of the PAJAK3 operations. It is unfair to mete death penalty on that guy. We should also look at Malaysian Farm Businesses in Sabah that is recruiting in Southern Philippines some undocumented workers (cheaper labor). This would help us decide whether or not it is just right to temporarily ban all work permits for OCWs going to Malaysia until this illegal recruitment is eradicated.

SIR JOHN, THE UPROOTING OF MORO/FILIPINO PEOPLE IN SABAH IS ALL OVER THE NEWS. HAVE YOU EVER PREDICTED THIS?

ANSWER: Yes. I predicted it. Few weeks before it started happening, we sensed unnecessary movement of the MILF, and based on it I accurately predicted in January 26, 2013 in the blog titled, "MILF helps Malaysia uproot Bangsamoro People away from Homeland Sabah". At that time, we just didn't know how Malaysia is going to execute the plan. We thought they are going to use the MILF. I never thought they are going to use a Sultan Claimant to act as a running rabbit-prey for them.

QUESTION: [by Kumalah Daud] With all due respect to you Sir Jon, I can't understand your logic of hinting that DFA should ban all work permits for Malaysia when all we can witness now are the avalanche of refugees from Sabah arriving by the hundred in Tawi-tawi and Sulu wharfs. No natives from our place in their right mind will think about going to Sabah now that the conflict is still raging. I can't even imagine people especially from Mindanao going thru the proper channel to work in Malaysia when it's an open knowledge that most of them just go Malaysia thru the backdoor. I might be wrong about this though. Thanks.

ANSWER: The mere fact that you call working through the backdoor an "OPEN KNOWLEDGE", it means the ILLEGAL ACTIVITY is already widely and grossly practiced beyond what we call a "tolerable margin of error". Illegal cross-border can be used as a medium of transnational terrorism and it can damage both ways -- it means terrorism can easily enter Malaysia and can easily enter Philippines. It has to stop.

ADDL QUESTION: [by: Kumalah Daud] Ideally sir John you are exactly right. They are crossing borders illegally. But we are not on the same economic plight with them, we can't really prevent or blame them from looking for "greener pastures" on that other side. They need to survive, make a decent living and feed their family no matter what the consequences for crossing the border illegally. But I think most if not all of them are productive members of the society in Malaysia. Hence Malaysian authorities somehow allow them to stay there even illegally.

ANSWER: That's there had to be a Senate Investigation on this anomaly so we can make intelligent foreign policy decision.

ADDL QUESTION: [by: Kumalah Daud] You have a great point sir John. But it would be best to let the dust settle first before proceeding with any investigation.

ANSWER: A dust floating dangerously on air looks differently as a dust peacefully settled on the ground. Investigation has to be scientific. Facts must be recorded while they are in motion.

ADDL QUESTION: [by: Kumalah Daud] Pacifying the two parties is urgently needed right now instead of an investigation, but i digress.

ANSWER: Well, we can have both pacifying the COUP DE ETAT and investigation.

ADDL QUESTION: [by: Kumalah Daud] You will be walking on a tight rope with that balancing acts sir John. It will just add tension to an already precarious situation.
12 minutes ago · Like

ANSWER: Frankly, without senate investigation, I would unleash the MNLF. I'm not joking. When the soldiers behind the Coup De Etat rides on the cause of the MNLF, we will have a far more greater problem in homeland Philippines. Senate Investigation is a peaceful way, and I demand it, not just request. Later on, if there are errors, you will blame me for not making an intelligent decision. But you can't blame me because I DEMANDED for an Senate Investigation so we can make intelligent decision.

ADDL QUESTION: [by: Kumalah Daud] I was thinking all the while that you are for advocacy sir John. Would that prerogative of unleashing the MNLF belong to Prof Nur alone? just asking.

ANSWER: Nur Misuari already unleashed the MNLF to fight back on grounds of "self-defense". I just blocked it, or say, postpone the execution until we are ready with intelligent explanation that can surpass future advocacy obstacles.

ADDL QUESTION: [by: Kumalah Daud] Am i right in believing that presently Prof. Nur doesn't have an absolute control of the agendas of the MNLF ant that another person or should I say you as an advocate for MNLF can actually block him? I don't think Prof Nur would be comfortable with that role, with due respect to your designation as an advocate sir John.

ANSWER: Did I say block him? I said I blocked it. There is no way I can block Misuari, there is no way Misuari can block me or any person in MNLF because there is neither employer-employee nor superior-subordinate type of relationships in the revolutionary movement where we risk our one life at our own expense. There is a big difference between blocking a person from making a statement versus blocking an action. Do you think MNLF will say Misuari gave the action orders? We cant do that. MNLF will say Misuari gave the RATIONALE, but someone else ORDERS the actual MNLF attack. Who will give the ORDERS? That you will never know and I will never know. My job here is to a DETAIL OF THE RATIONALE and I need accurate information (through Senate Investigation) so I can make an intelligent decision as to what I will write in the detail of the rationale.

We are not like regular soldiers or paid mercenaries who goes to battle based on orders of the employer. Each person in MNLF goes to battle based on INTELLIGENT DECISION and it is dependent on the DETAIL OF THE RATIONALE which is written by the tip of my fingers.

SIR JOHN, HOW DO YOU MEASURE THE PURENESS OF MALAYSIA'S INTENTIONS?

The pureness of intention can be quantifiable. If Malaysia's assistance to Philippines is pure, it should not be dependent on any condition. If Malaysia will still provide the investments that PNoy is drooling about while we continue our claim on Sabah, then their intention is pure. Otherwise, whatever investment the Malaysian is promising should be considered as a counter offer of the Sabah lease increase. If what we get from Sabah is lower than its current market value in terms of lease, that is around P500Billion for the 5 Zones (we won't lease out Zone 4 and 7), then it means we are in a losing end of the transaction. If the value we get is lower than P500Billion, then this so called Malaysian Assistance that the Philippine Government is drooling about is CHEAPER WAY from the point of view of the Malaysians. We prefer the lease payment to be in CASH, and not in kind or something else; and it has to go directly to the People of Sulu (Tausugs) and not to somewhere else.

SIR JOHN, THE MILF APPEARS TO BE THE FAVORITE OF THE PNOY AQUINO ADMINISTRATION. IS THIS GOOD FOR THE FILIPINO PEOPLE?

PNoy's action is not good for the Filipino People. There is a big difference between MNLF and MILF. A lot of people don't know the difference between MNLF and MILF because we lack communication and advocacy. People thought MNLF and MILF are the same. As a result of the clouded perception, the democracy becomes unable to render smart choices and decision. I think there should be a Senate hearing on the Sabah issue. This is the best way to declassify it from the back burner and let the democracy sympathize and decide intelligently on the persistent issues haunting the Southern Philippines.



WHO ARE THE PERSONALITIES WHO HAVE STRONG LINK TO THE MALAYSIAN POLITICAL INVESTMENTS IN PHILIPPINES?

MILF, Ampatuans, PNoy, his possible successor (Roxas), and their cronies in Imperial Manila (primarily the Aquino, Cojuanco clan) also has strong link with the "juice" of the political investment of Malaysia in the Philippines. Roxas plays a prominent role in the program of disarmament (DDR) in Mindanao. With a disarmed people, the people will be put in a situation wherein they will have difficulty defending themselves against any uprooting mechanism that will be implemented later on by the Malaysian Federation.

SIR JOHN, THIS IS FOR MY SCHOOL REPORT. WHY DO YOU NEED TO SECEDE THE MOROLAND (MINDANAO, SULU, PALAWAN, SABAH) FROM PHILIPPINES BEFORE FEDERALISM. WHY DON'T YOU GO STRAIGHT TO FEDERALISM?

ANSWER: That's a good question, Mark. There was already a Philippine Federation plan in 2008 but we, the MNLF, are just not comfortable with it because of the oil and water analogy.

If we divide the country at its present state and superficially and form a federation, it will be like mixing oil and water, wherein the oil will float over water. The oil is the rich Imperial Manila and the water is the periphery poor sub-states -- it will be like a household wherein Imperial Manila is the BOSS and the poor sub-states are the SLAVES.

Although we like the idea of Philippine Federalism, we prefer that we make it a Phase 2, wherein Phase 1 is the formation of Independent Sub-State (Bangsamoro) by self-determination. It has to be by self-determination, we don't like to form an independent Bangsamoro with leaders that are "anointed" by Imperial Manila.

In 1976, the Philippine Government (GPH) proposed Bangsamoro Autonomy and we accepted it as a form of MNLF-GPH Peace Pact called Tripoli Agreement. The Autonomy was not properly implemented because there was a misunderstanding for 40 years that I discovered only in 2011. For the GPH, they think Autonomy is a dead-end, the bottomline, wherein we (MNLF) drop the objective of Bangsamoro Independence. For the MNLF, the Autonomy is just a stepping-stone towards Independence. Again, I would like to emphasize that this anomaly of conflict of interest was only discovered by me in 2011.

Now, the question is, should we junk the Autonomy of the ARMM and consider it a failed experiment? My knee-jerk response was, YES, it has to be junked. But later on, I realized that Autonomy would give us a better milestone compared to the idea of MOA-AD, Sub-State, and Bangsamoro Commission, and Bangsamoro Framework because these ideas are "Exclusively Muslims" and these won't move smoothly in a democratic platform. So, sorry for the inconvenience brought about by change of mind. The status now is we continue the ARMM, Nur Misuari will run for ARMM Governor. We will use the ARMM as a "training ground" or a "springboard" towards independence and we want to make sure that we do it right by putting no one else but Misuari himself at the helm.

Achieving independence is difficult, but achieving a prosperous independent nation is much much more difficult. With regards to problem with money, I will take care of that using the idle asset of Sulu (Sabah Land) through the PREMS Deal. First to become Independent will be Sulu Islands. Second is Sabah. Third is Palawan. Third is Zamboanga Peninsula. Fourth is Mainland Mindanao. Sulu will become the rich empire of the South, most probably a little richer than Metro Manila.

When we have independent Sulu in the South and independent Metro Manila in the North, the Philippine Federation will still be born and we will have a mixture of oil and oil -- we form a Federation as EQUALS.

QUESTION: SIR JOHN, CAN LEADERS, OFFICERS, AND NEGOTIATORS OF THE MNLF, MILF, AND SULTANATES BE ISSUED SUBPOENA BY SENATE IN LINE WITH YOUR PROPOSED SENATE INVESTIGATION ON MALAYSIAN INTERVENTION IN PHILIPPINES?

ANSWER: Yes. Almost all of them are holders of Philippine Passport, hence they are Filipino Citizens. As Filipino Citizens, they can be issued Senate subpoena to answer questioned and testify under oath; and are liable to perjury if they tell a lie. They can testify on many instances that Malaysia contributed war materials and conflict inducers in Mindanao. They also know a lot about the masterminds behind the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG). You can even subpoena the living Presidents of the Philippines and ask them what they received in return for silencing the Sabah issue. These information has to be made public through televised coverage so we can condemn what is wrong, expose the players of the anomaly, and finally put an end to the insurgency and armed conflict in Mindanao.

As a nation, on matters concerning national security and territorial integrity, we cannot legislate based on secret negotiations that PNoy calls "back-burner". The Senate Investigation has to be done before Senate debates on any legislative proposal in relation to amendments to the 1996 MNLF-GPH Final Peace Agreement and the 2012 MILF-GPH Framework Agreement for Bangsamoro.

Tausug's Short Story for Children

SIR JOHN, HOW TO TELL THE STORY OF THE TAUSUG TO A CHILD?

ANSWER: Wow. I like that question. Very challenging. I hope you would like and SHARE my short childish story.

Once upon a time, there was this lady with so many husbands. The lady's name is Philippines. Her first husband is a foreigner named Spain. She was maltreated by Spain for a long time. Spain left her and come another two foreign husbands who quickly came and go named Dutch and British.

Then came another foreigner named America and he married Philippines too. Because the American was a gambler, he had trouble with another man named Germany, so the right hand man of Germany named Japan came to Philippines and married her for pleasure.

The man named America eventually won the gamble abroad and he returned to Philippines to take her back from Japan. Since then, America dictates upon Philippines and holds her by the neck and rapes her anytime he wants to have recreation.

Philippines have so many children and they look pretty like their fathers, Spain, Japanese, Americans. By the way, before I forget, Philippines also have a "boyfriend who lives next door", his name is China, she's got a lot of kids who are pretty Chinese looking. Among the men and many husbands Philippines had, China is the best provider for her family's table.

Philippines have this one unique child named TAUSUG. He is the eldest of all children and he came in even before her mom was forced into marriage with the foreigners.

Tausug did not get good education because he is emotionally disturbed, rebellious, and angry after he'd seen all those rapes and abuses against her mom.

Tausug have so much battle scars and old wounds because among the many children of Philippines, he is the only one who resented and fought against the abusive husbands of her mom, while all the other children just watch their mom getting raped.

Because Tausug did not get good education, he is just a backyard farmer, and he lives in a shanty right outside the same house with his mom.

Tausug have a different religion, he is Muslim, he got it from his dad, while his mom and all siblings are Christians. Even up to present and her mom gives him left-over food for his everyday need to survive.

By the way, before I forget, Tausug's once helped a fellow Muslim named Brunei, and as a reward for the help, Brunei gave him a huge piece of land called Sabah. There was a time when Tausug had to lease Sabah so he can use the rent to buy some weapons in his fight against the rapists of her mom. Tausug could have been rich if he is just educated enough to discover how to get the highest benefit from that land. At present, another Muslim named Malaysia is occupying the land, that Tausug call that guy "squatter", who would not allow Tausug to come near his own land. Ohh boy, Tausug recently went to his land by surprise and they have a fight with the squatter. Tausug have new wounds and scars again in this fight.

One day, Tausug spoke to his mom and he said, "Mom, I can no longer bear the pain of the abuses against you. What I see is painful to you but more painful to me. I want to have a family of my own and children I call my own and a new life. I want to get out of this house, find my own place".

Philippines would not allow Tausug to leave for independence. Perhaps she loves him too, despite him being "special" compared to the rest. To make it impossible for Tausug to leave, Philippines did everything to keep him poor so he can never keep a savings for the fare that is needed to leave. So now, you can still find Tausug in that shanty right next to the house of Philippines.

Tausug is very old now. I think it is time to give him his freedom. I am son of Philippines, so I am Tausug's brother, but I was born in Mindanao, a place where Tausug calls his homeland. My role in this life before I die is do whatever I can do to raise the money Tausug needs for his fare for his long awaited journey towards independence.

The Feb 2013 Royal Army of Sulu Sultanate Stand-Off in Sabah

ROYAL ARMY OF SULU SULTANATE (RASS) STAND-OFF IN SABAH

QUESTION: Sir John, what can you say about the news about a certain Sulu Sultan and his 100 armed men surprise landing in Sabah? They say there are 200 more coming from MNLF. What can you say about this?

ANSWER: That is not part of the MNLF Sabah Recovery Project and MNLF Sabah PREMS Deal. That landing is not sanctioned by MNLF. If they were able to land that easily, it seems to appear that Malaysia is stupid, and I don't think Malaysia is stupid. So it appears more to me as a stage show. I don't know who are the parties behind that stage play, maybe Malaysia and Philippines is behind that stage play -- let's wait a little more and read the news further, because we can see the script of the stage show in how the news is presented.

Some people say that I should take that landing as an indicator that it is easy to land in Sabah; but I don't buy the deception.

When time comes for MNLF to land in Sabah, we send in at least 10,000 men in first batch and we expect heavy artillery, air assault, and even submarine and naval repulse by the Malaysian Army.

I will make the first say if it is MNLF sanctioned. I will keenly observe and make the last say since it is not.


MY RECOMMENDATION ON THE SULU- STAND-OFF

That landing is a surprise. It is not MNLF sanctioned. We are in the middle of hot pursuit against Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG). I understand that those who landed for a stand-off in Sulu (the beach boys) are brothers of MNLFs in Sulu. But the timing is, in my opinion, nothing more than an enemy ploy to divert our attention, from ASG hot pursuit, to somewhere else. We’ve seen this a lot of times how adults play with kids – we are not kids to play around with.

It is also possible that Malaysia is behind that stage play so they can justify increase of military funds from Kuala Lumpur. A 100 sultan beach boys could translate into a certain amount of increase in Malaysian military resources in Sabah; but if we add up another 200 MNLF beach boys, the resulting increase of Malaysian military preparedness budget for Sabah could become much higher and it’s not good for us.

Your message to me should have been like this: John, sultans on Sabah stand-off sought Maas' help and Maas decided to help, please provide advocacy support.

I have analyzed the Sabah stand-off way back even before I received the emotional phone-in that expressed “care” for the Tausug brothers who are now in a stand-off situation. Care must be mutual. Have you asked those beach boys if they care to be responsible of their reckless action for the lives of the 200 MNLFs if we ever send them off to Sulu to provide reinforcement?

My recommendation is, if you care for those Tausugs who beached there, the best option is to advise them to return immediately to Sulu. Retreat is a normal and acceptable decision in war and this is when it is most applicable – no other option. Our armed troops may have the nerve to fight anytime, but with meager resources, large scale battles are won by careful planning, preparation, and capability-build-up, and proper execution of plan. Sending our troops to gate crash in a surprise stand-off may result to armed conflict on enemy grounds. That is enemy grounds, they are prepared, we are not, we are facing an unexpected amount of risk.

It is a sign of weakness and it is unwise for land owners to get their hands dirty in the ground work of squatter ejection operation. When they return, I will personally brief them of the plan.

Nevertheless, I am game too if you decide to fight two enemies (ASG and Malaysia) simultaneously. Fewer claimant is better than many. Just bring whoever and whatever is left alive to me so I can brief them of the plan. But before they die, they should at least be informed of the plan so they can make intelligent decision. They have the right to know the plan.

Sultan Muedzul already came to me and he knows the plan. Maas too knows the plan. The rest of the claimants must not be deprived of their right to know the plan if you really care for them truly as brothers. Their boat fuel might be one-way trip only when they traveled to Sabah, so please find a way to provide boat fuel for those beach boys so they can return home safely. This should be Misuari's help -- send in boat fuel for their return home.

The public perception is not good for us as the stand-off continues.
The public perception is not good for us if we send in military reinforcement for the beach boys.
The public perception is not good for us if those beach boys deported.

Whatever tragic thing happens, my conscience is clear in my file, that’s why I am sending this letter to Maas through all of you.

WARNING ON CHARACTER SHIFT

The moment MNLF sends in combat troops to Sabah without properly following international protocol, it becomes automatically listed as a transnational terrorist organization, and it becomes domestically categorized as an active armed and dangerous insurgent organization operating on international scale. When the worse happens, it will destroy everything good about the image of MNLF from the perspective of the international community. When the MNLF circumstances change, it will also change how members make intelligent decision of whether to click LIKE and UNLIKE. For myself, frankly, if we become listed as a transnational terrorist organization, I will be the first to click UNLIKE.

Remember the rule, it is justified to arm yourself to defend your self, your family, your house, your community wherever you have your domicile (residence). In any combat area, the combatant party who is a foreign (non-resident) of that land is the aggressor and the ones who will be held criminally liable for disturbing the peace, for any loss of lives, and damages to property.

There is no other option. Send in a rescue mission under white flag to facilitate the return of the beach boys. Whether the rescue mission is done by the MNLF or the GPH or the Red Cross or a combination, I don't care. If they won't return, then leave them there -- it's up to Malaysia to enforce their local laws there. Don't ever tell me later that this warning was never posted here. Over 6,000 people read this page every day.

Before you act, read the BLUE BOOK that I gave! The U.N. gave that to me and I gave you copies to READ IT.

OWNERSHIP AND SOVEREIGNTY ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS

Sulu Sultanate claims ownership of Sabah. Let's assume they own it. The question is, is their action to enter Sabah to through the backdoor is legally justified? The answer lies on sovereignty.

I am a Filipino and I can own an estate in California USA. But Philippines is not sovereign in California. USA is sovereign nation in California. I still need to use my passport and get a US Visa to be able to enter California USA. I cannot just go through the backdoor with my private army and breach border controls of USA for reasons that I have an Estate in California.

It is the same in Sabah. At present, Malaysia is sovereign in Sabah. Although Sulu Sultanate owns Sabah, the people of Sulu still has to pass through border controls, show proper passport and Malaysian Visa to legally enter Sabah.

In my last personal talk with the former Malaysian Ambassador in Manila last June 2012, we discussed this border control issues matter in relation to MNLF's plan on Sabah. He said Malaysian authorities will issue Malaysian Visa to whoever has Passport and has legal basis to enter any Malaysian Territory, including Sabah, either for work or residency purposes. He also said that anyone with immigrant or non-immigrant visa in Sabah can stay in Sabah without fear of deportation unless they pose threat on national security or peace and order. So, I don't see any problem.

Anyone who enters Sabah bypassing border controls will be considered by malaysia as intruders. They will be arrested, processed, and deported back to their origin. If they resist arrest, the malaysian authorities will be forced to use force to arrest them. Unarmed illegal entry is just a local law enforcement issue to be handles by ordinary immigration officers of malaysia. If the intrussion is heavily armed and highly organized with intent to take over sovereignty, they will treat it as an invasion and will be handled by the malaysian armed forces.

Do you think Philippine Government will get their hands dirty on the beach boys? In a deportation process, the first thing the PH Dept of Foreign Affairs will ask about is the proof of Philippine Citizenship of those boys and they would need to see Philippine Passports. The question is, does those beach boys have Philippine Passports? Without PH Passport, those beach boys will stay in jail in malaysia for a long long long time until they bow their heads and swallow their pride to take an oath as Filipino citizens and apply for PH Passport.

There is no such thing as a Bangsamoro Passport yet. even Misuari was deported by malaysia when he breached border controls of Sabah in 2001. But he was lucky he has PH passport, the process of deportation did not take that long.

ARE WE STOPPING MNLF FROM SHOWING SYMPATHY TO THE BEACH BOYS?

QUESTION: Sir John, are you stopping the MNLF from showing sympathy to the beach boys?

ANSWER: No. I am not. No one can stop the feeling sympathy. Sympathy is an individual thing. It is a natural thing. I myself sincerely sympathize with the beach boys.

Nevertheless, as MNLF, we encounter a lot of people who needs our help. Sometimes these request for help are difficult to refuse because it comes from a friend, a kababayan, a neighbor, a brother, a sister, a father or mother. They ask our help because they think that, as MNLF, we are stronger than the oppressor or some of them think we are vigilante. We have to be very very clear in defining our action. Are we helping in our individual capacity, or, are we helping using the badge of the MNLF. If it is a personal issue and help, we don't use the name of MNLF.

Yung mga kamag-anak at kaibigan ng mga beach boys, hindi ko yan sila pinipigilan na mag sympathize and tumulong, and even pumunta sa Sabah para ibigay ang sarili bilang reinforcement. They can do and go whenever they want. But they should not use the name of MNLF. They should make a clear statement that they are going in their individual capacity.

For those who sympathize and will actually go to Sabah for a combat mission to aid the beach boys, they should do it properly. Before they go, they should write a formal statement and publish it in the internet saying that (1) they are not carrying the badge and flag of the MNLF when they go to Sabah because it is not MNLF sanctioned, and (2) they should list personal identity information of those persons who will be going (i.e. names, gender, birthday, address, next of kin, parent's name, passport# if any).

Through that procedure, MNLF will not be categorized as a transnational terrorist organization and we can contain the list of identifiable persons who are responsible for the inevitable act -- hindi madamay ang mga decent na MNLF na walang kinalaman dyan.

Ang pag-aalaga sa magandang image ng MNLF ay trabaho ko yan. Walang pwedeng humarang or pumigil sa akin kasi naka-taya dito ang pangalan ko.

WHOEVER IN MNLF CENTRAL COMMITTEE SAYS YES TO MNLF ATTACK TO SABAH IN RESPONSE TO THE ONGOING STAND-OFF... make sure that you lead at the front line and be in the assault boats Honor and Courage. Put your life where your mouth is.

WHY DON'T YOU ORGANIZE A PEACEFUL RALLY or PUBLIC SYMPOSIUM to support and discuss the Tausugs on Sabah Stand-Off? You have a lot of influential Tausugs around who can organize this.

EFFECT OF DEPORTATION ON RIGHT OF REAL ESTATE OWNERSHIP

QUESTION: Sir John, what is the effect on a person's right of real estate ownership if he gets expelled or deported out from the country/state where the property is located?

ANSWER: He could lose his rights of ownership through government expropriation proceeding.

PROSPERITY THE KEY TO INDEPENDENCE

You will get your independence when you can show that (1) you have good income to stand on your own, (2) you can send your children to good school, (3) you respect the rights of the people around you, (4) you can defend your own life and personal property, (5) you have a good line-up of well-educated intellectuals in the community who are willing to administer your government, and (6) you have a collection of signatures of self-determined people who support the independence.

Untamed guns, poverty, and religious extremism -- these three are the recipe for extermination of your own people.

FOOD BLOCKADE

QUESTION: Sir John, what can you say about food blockade in the Sabah stand-off?

ANSWER: Malaysia sanctioned food blockade is a globally acceptable tactics in armed conflict situation. It is a peaceful way to gradually reduce the will-to-fight and fighting energy of the opponent. It is not classified as "deprivation of food". Deprivation of food is when you will not feed the person in your custody or when you burn a person's tongue so he can't eat. The beach boys, right now, are not yet under custody of the Malaysian authorities -- they are not being deprived to eat whatever vegetation is available within their reach.

The beach boys are in a situation now wherein they cannot get out because Malaysian authorities would like to arrest and deport them for record purposes. I don't think they will be allowed to just go out of Sabah because from the point of view of the Malaysian authorities, it is tantamount to allowing intruders to escape, and they too have jobs to protect as law enforcers. If the beach boys will resist arrest, for sure a firefight will ensue. Anyone who goes to battle must be ready to die and the audience, too, must be ready to accept casualties.

Can MNLF enter the area on reinforcement mission? I think yes. If there is a will, there is a way. But the risk is too high and it will be very difficult. The place is sealed. It is surrounded by a combat-ready superior Malaysian forces in land and sea. On the Philippine side, the Philippine Navy is also on the borders and I think the PH Navy will fire some scary .50cal warning shots from the battleship machine-guns if they would see MNLFs on small wooden boats trying to go to Sabah at this time for whatever reason.

While the stand-off continues, the Philippine Media is continually publishing the underlying reasons why this thing is happening. We gain domestic sympathy in this aspect.

The downside is, the show of hostile character from our side is not good for the one negotiating the interest of the Bangsamoro. Remember, negotiation is not just talks, but it also includes developing publicity on the opponent's side of society to affect the decision making of the opponent. In this instance, the Malaysians perceive us as terrorists, intruders, ungoverned, and uncivilized people who does not know what a passport is and does not know how to use the airport.

IN THE ADVOCACY THAT WE DO FOR THE BANGSAMORO, I SEE A HUGE PROBLEM AHEAD

The ROYAL ARMY OF SULU SULTANATE (RASS) is underway to be listed under the category of Transnational Terrorist Organization (TTO). I hope this there is a way to stop this. We have a lot of MNLFs who have interlocking relationships with members of the RASS. The consequences will be unimaginable. Hihigpit ang issuance ng travel visa pag makita na taga Sulu ang applicant.

STAND-OFF IS ABU SAYYAF?

Foregn news says "Speculation is rife among Lahad Datu residents that the intruders are veterans of Abu Sayaff, the militant Islamist separatist group based in southern Philippines." Reference: http://wikisabah.blogspot.com/2013/02/aquino-wants-study-on-sulu-sultans.html#more

Sulu-based MNLF were in hot pursuit against Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) the past few days prior to the Sabah stand-off. Where are the dead bodies and wounded of the ASG?

Where are the kidnap victims?

Are those who fled to Sabah who are on stand-off now are the ASG the MNLF has been running after?

Is that stand-off in Sabah the "graceful exit" of the ASG; like a quick shift from being pursued as kidnappers to heroes and martyrs who will fight to recover Sabah territory?

What's going on? Is news abroad leaking some smokes?

The beach boys said they went to Sabah for a suicide rally to support Sultan's claim on Sabah. But I could not find any pre-cursor or pre-departure press release statement or self-video where they expressed their good intention BEFORE going to Sabah. Something is unusual.

As I said, domestic news stories is okay; but news in foreign grounds is devastating. In situations like this, the list line of defense is the advocacy machinery, and it can only function well if information flow is not blocked.

TRANSNATIONAL CRIMES IN SABAH MUST STAY IN MALAYSIAN JURISDICTION

Repatriation is bad for Malaysia and worse for Philippines, unless the two nations collaborated as co-directors of a stage play to smear dirt on MNLF's Sabah PREMS Deal and Sabah Recovery Project.

I don't think the Malaysian People and Filipino People are equally stupid enough to allow 300 armed men perceived to be transnational terrorists to leave Malaysian territory and enter Philippines without passport and due border control process.

SIR JOHN, WHAT IS THE APPROPRIATE PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT ROLE ON THE SABAH ISSUE?

ANSWER: The role of the Government of the Philippines (GPH) in this Sabah issue is to protect the friendly and diplomatic relations between Philippines and Malaysia. It is not a role of GPH to meddle upon the claim of Sulu's private ownership of a particular land that is located in a territory that is under Malaysian sovereign jurisdiction.

SIR JOHN, I WORK IN MALACANANG. WE ALWAYS READ YOUR POSTS IN MNLF. WE CONSIDERED SOME OF YOUR INPUTS IN THE RECENT STATEMENTS OF THE PRESIDENT. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST TO STRENGTHEN PHILIPPINE-MALAYSIA FRIENDSHIP ON SABAH ISSUE?

ANSWER: I would suggest Government of the Philippines (GPH) to open up a Dept of Foreign Affairs (DFA) office that can issue Philippine Passports in Sulu. The DFA Office in Sulu should also have a small space for the Malaysian Consul who can issue Malaysian Visa. This way, our people in Sulu don't need to travel far to get the necessary travel documents.

With this stand-off right now, I was informed by my MNLF intelligence agent in Sulu that they don't have rice in Sulu now because of naval blockade between Sabah and Sulu. Sulu imports their rice and other prime commodities mainly from Sabah. So, after this mess, please tell the President to develop also the RORO Pier for passenger boats crossing back-and-forth Sulu and Sabah. The Malaysian should also develop a good pier in Sabah closest to Sulu. Immigration Officers should check on the passports and visa on both sides -- Sabah side and Sulu side to ensure legality of people and goods crossing borders.

SABAH PREMS DEAL PARAMETER NO. 10

"The people of Sulu Sultanate must apply for appropriate Malaysian Visa or Malaysian Citizenship if they want to establish residency or work in Sabah".

The Sabah stand-off is a violation of that parameter. The participants will face arrest, process, and deportation. A record of deportation may possibly result to those participants losing their right and entitlement to ownership of Estates in Sabah. But I can possibly represent them in Malaysia and request the removal of their record of their deportation provided that their leader, Jamalum Kiram III, comes to my office and sign a statement that he was not aware of the Sabah PREMS Deal when he ordered the invasion in Sabah. I will also attest that I have not briefed him yet at the time when they violated the Sabah PREMS Deal Parameter No. 10.

STATUS OF THE RIGHTS THE ROYAL ARMY OF SULTANATE OF SULU IS FIGHTING FOR

1. Right to be recognized as landowner of Sabah. APPROVED.

2. Right of the landowner to sell Sabah. APPROVED.

3. Right of the landowner to collect lease and lease Sabah to any other party. APPROVED.

4. Right of the landowner to build house and develop the land in Sabah. APPROVED.

5. Right of the landowner to enter into business venture to develop the lands in Sabah and enjoy the fruits of the land. APPROVED.

6. Right of the landowner to enjoy the national security services of Malaysia on border controls. APPROVED.

7. Right of the landowners to just enter Sabah with fully armed private army without Passport, without Visa, without passing though formal border controls at ports and piers. DENIED.

8. Right of the landowners to make a self-determination to use force to expel Malaysian Sovereignty over Sabah or defy government authorities in Sabah. DENIED.

MNLF LEADER NUR MISUARI STATEMENT ON SABAH STAND-OFF
[Report from Philippine Star]

In a radio interview, Misuari reaffirmed his support for the sultanate but denied that the MNLF was on red alert and preparing for armed confrontation with Malaysian forces.

“I do not know where the report came from; there is no order for the MNLF to go on red alert,” he said over radio dzMM.

Misuari stressed the MNLF is not involved in the ongoing standoff in Lahad Datu and that he had even sent an appeal to Prime Minister Najib Razak not to harm the group.

He admitted, however, that some of the young men who joined the group were regular members of the MNLF.

He said the MNLF has ruled out the use of force in reasserting the Sabah claim.

SIR JOHN, WHAT DID THE SABAH STAND-OFF ACHIEVED?

ANSWER: I don't know. MNLF don't know. We don't know what it achieved and what it failed to achieve. That question should be asked to those who are involved in it. The papers quote Philippine intelligence saying there are three groups as INVISIBLE hands behind scenario:

(1) One small faction that is in it for the money,

(2) An Anti-Aquino Administration Group, and

(3) Malaysian political opposition.

In my honest opinion, there are also three groups I saw who has direct VISIBLE hands on the scenario:

(1) One powerful influence peddlers in Malacanang who takes in BRIBE from Malaysia in exchange of silencing the Sabah issue,

(2) A Pro-Aquino Administration Group who wants to show to Malaysia that their loyalty is worth the bribe that is being paid, and

(3) Malaysian political incumbents who currently dined and wined with the Aquino Administration in Malacanang during the signing of the GPH-MILF Bangsamoro Framework Deal.

My name is Rltr. John R. Petalcorin, my name is real; hence I am more credible than that unknown jejemon from the Philippine intelligence who lacks intellectual self-esteem to reveal his name.

WORDS OF WISDOM FROM SULTAN MUEDZUL KIRAM

KUDOS to Sultan Muedzul Kiram. Read more at http://borneoinsider.com/2013/02/23/another-sulu-sultan-opposes-bid-to-claim-sabah/

SIR JOHN, DID PNOY DO THE RIGHT THING ON THIS SABAH STAND-OFF?

ANSWER: YES. PNoy did the appropriate and righteous decision as President of the Republic of the Philippines. Moreover, he has pending righteous actions. He must implement the law against anyone who provokes the Philippines to have war with another nation.

SIR JOHN, SHOULD THE OIC INTERVENE IN THE SABAH ARMED CONFLICT?

ANSWER: I am not sure. Maybe YES if there is an issue on violation of Muslim Rights. MNLF is the OIC Observer Member, so, it should be Nur Misuari who will send an official recommendation to the OIC regarding the issue at hand. I've read in the papers that Misuari called upon the OIC to intervene to come up with peaceful resolution, but I am yet to see the paper trail of the official request. I am not a Muslim, but I think there is HIJRA violation. I am not sure.

SIR JOHN, WHY IS THIS MNLF PAGE NOT SUPPORTIVE OF THE ARMED CONFLICT IN SABAH?

ANSWER: Please read the ABOUT of this MNLF Page in Facebook and Blogger, it says "This page is created and maintained by the MNLF Director for Advocacy Communication for the benefit of fellow MNLF members, external observers, media, stakeholders, and "FRIENDLY GROUPS", which is a term in the 1994 GRP-MNLF Joint Ceasefire Guidelines and Ground Rules which refers to civilians and other groups that are supportive/sympathetic to the GRP-MNLF peace talks and the actual implementation of GRP-MNLF agreements for the best interest of the Bangsamoro People."

SIR JOHN, IF YOU ARE THE PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES, HOW CAN YOU BE PUT IN A SITUATION WHEREIN YOU WILL BE FORCED TO HELP THE SULTANATE OF SULU IN ASSERTING THEIR RIGHTS ON SABAH?

ANSWER: There is no way for the President or any government resources (especially Military) can be spent on a private interests such as private persons resolving their land ownership issues in a foreign land (Sabah).

If I were the President of the Republic, I would visit Kiram as he would want me to and I will bring a DEED OF DONATION for Kiram and other Sultan Claimants to sign. As President of the Republic, I will tell them: "donate Sabah to the Philippine Government and as President I will use whatever means is possible to take sovereignty of that land". Is Sulu willing to donate Sabah to the Philippine Government? I don't think so.

SIR JOHN, I AM A MALAYSIAN SCHOLAR. WHY CAN'T YOU STOP YOUR PEOPLE IN THE GROUNDS FROM LAUNCHING INDEPENDENT ASSAULTS ON SABAH?

ANSWER: I've been sitting here alone on the negotiating table for almost a year already, patiently waiting for Malaysia to come in and sit. I have given Malaysian authorities in Manila the paper of the agenda of the talks, but your country seem to be disinterested, or perhaps just bureaucratically slow in grabbing the opportunity of a peaceful negotiation. As a result, my people got impatient and perhaps some of them decided to group themselves to make the barrel of their guns do the talking. I told them not to go, but how can I stop impatient guns if I have no update to give them? In a few days, I might leave to somewhere in Europe to have my vacation and witness the installation of the new Pope for at least 6 months; so back here in Southeast Asia you just have to face those impatient guns who will come visit you every now and then. When we stop talking, the grounds will start shooting, that's how it works.

THE PRECURSOR -- For 4 decades Sabah was silent until on 26 Jan 2013 I expressed a "slight" feeling of disappointment over Malaysia in a blog http://bangsamoromnlf.blogspot.com/2013/01/milf-helps-malaysia-deport-bangsamoro.html

Fifteen days later, on 9 Feb 2013, the first batch of the Beach Boys arrived in Sabah, and I was surprised because I don't even know who these guys are. It's like river, it flows naturally.

SIR JOHN, NAJIB AND ANWAR, ELECTION COMPETITORS IN MALAYSIA ARE POINTING THEIR FINGER AT EACH OTHER WITH ALLEGATION OF MASTERMINDING OF THIS SABAH ARMED CONFLICT. WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THIS?

ANSWER: There is only one mastermind of what is going on now in Sabah and the person is me. My situation is unique because I just wrote a series of blogs about Sabah and people I never met in my entire life started reacting, the situation became out of control, and one morning we already have a stand-off and after a few days a bloodbath, and who knows what will happen next.

I neither had acquaintance, meeting, communication, nor any link with Anwar, nor with Najib, nor with Jamalul Kiram III. If they have met with Misuari, Murad, Kiram or anyone, it is irrelevant because none of these guys have ever directly or indirectly influenced me in asserting the rights of the Tausugs over Sabah.

However, I admit, there are one or two high ranking officials of the MNLF who sent me text messages that ORDERED me to shut down my blogs during the height of the stand-off. So, as a knee jerk response, I temporarily shut it down and even accidentally deleted everything. But I realized later that there seems to be inconsistency between the shut-down order and my blanket authority in the MNLF on this Sabah Recovery Project, so I revived the site. As a result of this, we are currently experiencing a major rift in the MNLF - someone who wants our blogs to continue asserting the rights of the Tausugs versus someone who wants to SILENCE us. Strange, though, that the group who wants to silence us are the ones actively involved in supplying beach boys to the Royal Army of Sultan Jamalul Kiram III. We, the noisy ones, don't want the Tausugs to breach Malaysian territory.

My approach in the Sabah issue is NEGOTIATION, SCHOLARLY TALKS, not war. Najib and Anwar are accusing each other on riding the issue and instigating the war. As mastermind of this Sabah explosive issue, I will be the judge on who between Anwar and Najib is telling the truth. The judgement criteria will be simple. Whoever between the two will sit with us for a cup of coffee, anywhere they want, is the one who is PRO-PEACE. The one who is pro-peace will get the Sabah votes.

SIR JOHN, IS MNLF, AS AN ORGANIZATION, ALREADY OFFICIALLY INVOLVED AS PARTICIPANT OF THE SABAH ARMED CONFLICT? [5 March 2013]

ANSWER: Not yet. You know, MNLF members are spread all over Mindanao, Palawan, Sabah, Sulu, and even Metro Manila. MNLF is a very huge organization. At present, MNLF leader Nur Misuari has not yet PUBLICLY declared MNLF's official participation in that war. So the status is, we have nothing to do with that, yet.

You know, it just a coincident that "some few" of the first batch of the Beach Boys who died there in Sabah were some sort of affiliated with MNLF. So, like a fraternity, their surviving brothers would get angry and go there too to take revenge and we can't stop them. In Sabah, there are also MNLFs and if one of them get killed, the fraternity instinct kicks in and it becomes a chain reaction of one fighter coming into the picture after another. It just a coincidence that that these people involved in the fighting are MNLF.

If you see 200 or 100 or 50 men going to Sabah, that's not MNLF yet. You would know if MNLF is officially involved because I will publish it here and we will be sending at least 10,000 troops to Sabah batch-by-batch, endlessly. As of today, MNLF, as an organization, is not yet officially involved.

SIR JOHN, IS THE PHILIPPINE PRESIDENT "SINCERE" IN HIS POLICY THAT PHILIPPINE GOVERNMENT WILL DISCOURAGE FILIPINOS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE ADVENTURES IN SABAH?

ANSWER: I am not sure. I have doubts. If he is sincere, he could have just prevented this armed conflict be ordering his Military Intelligence to arrest those who are actively recruiting MNLFs to participate in armed conflict to Sabah. There is less than five of these illegal recruiters. Once you arrest these guys, the RASS will no longer have supply of men.

Another thing, if the Philippine President is sincere, the Philippine Naval ships should have been effective in preventing the RASS recruits from crossing to Sabah. If there are still ARMED illegal border-crossers, then there is something wrong in the Philippine side.

The Malaysian side should pick this post and help them calculate the sincerity of the Philippine President's statement supporting the diplomatic relations of Malaysia and Philippines.

The President's FUNCTIONAL NEGLIGENCE to perform his duty to prevent transnational crimes originating from his territorial jurisdiction is an IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE. http://www.humantrafficking.org/organizations/279

But if Malaysian Government and Philippine Government are co-directors of the stage show for whatever ulterior motive they have, we can't compel these governments to do the right thing. One thing for sure, these two governments hate the MNLF and they have insiders in the MNLF who will drag the MNLFs name into the armed conflict.

SIR JOHN, WHERE IS PEACE?

ANSWER: Look around you. Malaysian media fueling the war. Philippine media fueling the war. Malaysian government started the firing of shots at the protesters in Sabah that resulted to the escalation of the armed conflict. Philippine government seem to speak peace but its border control is not sincere in preventing armed cross-borders. There are many brave officers in MNLF who are not afraid to do fraternity wars. MILF helping Malaysia systematically uproot Tausugs in Sabah. Everybody wants WAR!

Since day one, in the side of Philippines there is only one place where the Sabah issue is not silenced and where PEACE COFFEE is always kept warm for the Malaysians to "try" and sincere prevention of armed conflict is proposed. The PEACE COFFEE is in this MNLF Page.

SIR JOHN, CAN YOU TELL US WHY THAT ASSAULT SOME FEW TAUSUGS IN SABAH NOW IS NOT OFFICIALLY RELATED TO THE PROPOSED SABAH PREMS DEAL?

ANSWER: That is a good question Jimmy. First and foremost, the Sabah PREMS Deal is a peaceful and scholarly talks that is intended to produce real estate contracts (lease and joint venture) between the landowner (People of Sulu or Tausugs) and the landusers (Malaysians plus many others). The foundation of success of the Sabah PREMS Deal is on the supposed righteous policy of Malaysia to protect the bundle of rights of the landowners and landusers.

If Malaysia ignores the proponents (scholars and negotiators) of the Sabah PREMS Deal and suppresses the rights of the landowners, that's the time the Sabah PREMS Deal will have to be escalated to INVASION, that is, to eject Malaysian sovereignty over Sabah and replace it with another that will most probably protect the rights of the landowners, the landusers, and the people in general.

In the event Sabah PREMS Deal elevates the matter to the Invasion Team, I will make a strict instruction that the Tausugs must not be engaged in the groundwork squatter ejection process because they are the landowners. This is so because the landowners has to be alive because Sabah PREMS Deal is basically serving the interest of the landowners. No landowners, no Sabah PREMS Deal. Sabah PREMS Deal treats the Tausugs people in general as ROYALTIES, we value each one of them, and we want to preserve that bloodline because they are the people that I personally believe as destined to be revived to rule the entire Bangsamoro Land (Mindanao, Sulu, Palawan, Sabah) in the future.

So now, in the present armed conflict situation in Lahad Datu, you see small packs of Tausugs invading Sabah. The mere fact that Tausugs are involved in the nasty groundwork of invasion, that is not Sabah PREMS Deal, and that is not the work of the hand of the MNLF.

SIR JOHN, WHY ARE MNLF MEMBERS EASILY SWAYED TO JOIN ARMED CONFLICT ADVENTURES?

ANSWER: MNLF, as an organization, has a very huge membership. Some have guns, some don't. MNLFs are generally revolutionary minded, fraternity protectionists, unemployed or underemployed, and lowly educated; hence, they are very vulnerable to be easily swayed by "recruiters" who supply boys to Abu Sayyaf, MILF, RASS (PAJAK3), Private Armies, Election Goons, etc. So, if you have available guns, ammunition, and you need boys to carry it for you to battle, no matter what reason, whether that be jihad, redo, fraternity vengeance, assertion of property rights, terrorism, electioneering, escort service to a VIP, or even just group PICTORIALS, you can easily find an MNLF who claims to be an MNLF Officer and pay him to get him to supply you with boys you need. The eyes of those boys will glisten if you show them high-powered guns to carry.

That is why in MNLF, I have been long ago sending feelers to the Philippine Government to help us conduct seminars in the grounds so we can educate our boys and reduce their vulnerability to terrorist trafficking. We also have feelers to assist government in gun registration. But the Philippine Government just didn't pick up the feelers. I think the Philippine Government don't care about peace and order in Mindanao.

Nevertheless, the lack of care of Philippine Government in Mindanao did not stop us from advocating peace and order in this MNLF Page in Facebook.

JUST A COINCIDENCE OF THE DATES

9 Feb 2013, MNLF pursuing the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) in Patikul Sulu reached the dead end of the search. The ASG are holding in Patikul Sulu and MNLF had been pursuing them since 2 Feb 2013 in an effort to rescue kidnapped victims Jordanian journalist Baker Abdulla Atyani, Elwold Horn (Holland citizen kidnapped by ASG on 1 Feb 2012), Lorenzo Vinceguerre (Swiss citizen kidnapped by ASG on 1 Feb 2012), Warren Richard Rodwell (Australian citizen kidnapped by ASG on 5 December 2011), and Japanese Toshio Ito (Japanese citizen kidnapped by ASG in July 2010). Being pursued are around 200 men, suddenly disappeared in Sulu.

9 Feb 2013, the so-called Royal Army of Sultanate of Sulu (RASS), landed in Laha Datu Sabah with around 200 men.

Well, it looks like Malaysia invited them in and is harboring the kidnappers in Sabah and even gave them a new ALYAS RASS!

Are there Malaysian Police getting ambushed and decapitated? Well, ambush and decapitating are ASG trademarks.

Jamalul Kiram III, the sender of the RASS, showed proof that he is on Malaysian payroll.

You know what? A lot of Malaysian Police and Army get killed in Sabah. To preserve Malaysian-Philippines diplomatic relations, I think the good Malaysian People should ask their President or whatever they call him about the Malaysian black ops in Southern Philippines.

I have already exhausted all my effort to get proof of life of the kidnapped victims in Southern Philippines, but yielded nothing. I guess early morning of 9 Feb 2013, the ASG, along with their captives, have already crossed border to Sabah.

Now we go to my answer on the question on WHAT IS MALAYSIA'S POLICY WITH REGARDS TO HANDLING THE TAUSUG'S CLAIM.

SIR JOHN, WHAT IS MALAYSIA'S POLICY WITH REGARDS TO HANDLING THE TAUSUG'S CLAIM?

ANSWER: Why ask me, I am not Malaysia. Ask Malaysia. But since you already asked, perhaps you want to know how I see Malaysia's policy from my own perception and opinion.

In my study, I picked up four Malaysia policies/strategy with regards to handling the Tausug's claim on Sabah:

(1) Silence the issue. This is done by bribing the media and the Philippine Government. One of the evidences is the Memorandum of former President Gloria Arroyo in 2008 mandating all government agency to be SILENT on the Sabah issue. Some officers of the MNLF were also utilized to tell me to shut down my noisy blogs.

(2) Keep the Tausug poor and politically powerless. This is done by bribing the administration of the Philippine Government, and by using the MILF and Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG) to ensure that investors will get scared in Sulu and in entire Mindanao.

(3) Depopulate and uproot the Tausugs in Sabah. This is done by terrorising the Tausugs in Sabah and by facilitating Malaysian investments in Mindanao to facilitate their return to Mindanao.

(4) Create and maintain a multiple-claimant scenario. This is done by creating, feeding the desire of royalty, and providing appropriate costumes and international recognition to SEVERAL Sulu Sultan claimants separately and make them compete/fight each other over the issue on who the rightful Sultan is.

THE PRIVATE ARMY OF JAMALUL KIRAM III (PAJAK3)

The correct name of the group involved in the Sabah raid of 9 Feb 2013 should be "Private Army of Jamalul Kiram III (PAJAK3)". It is inappropriate and unfair to the people of Sulu to call them Royal Army of Sultanate of Sulu.

SIR JOHN, I AM A TAUSUG. TO WHOM ARE YOU LOYAL, TO THE PEOPLE OF SULU OR TO MALAYSIA?

ANSWER: SABAH PREMS DEAL is a PROFESSIONAL APPROACH. Professionals do what is right according to the dictum of the profession. Just like a doctor, a doctor's job is to save lives, no one can dictate upon the doctor on the professional medical care that has to be done upon the patient.

If you read my blogs on Sabah PREMS Deal, you will notice that I spent so much time and effort on it with a primary objective that THE PEOPLE OF SULU must benefit from the fruits of Sabah. It is a nightmare for any real estate professional to press the rights of the owner of the land when the land is possessed by someone else.

Now, let me tell you the truth. I know a technicality that will make Sulu lose its OWNERSHIP RIGHTS on Sabah. If I were loyal to Malaysia, I could have just told Malaysia what to do, and with just two sentences of advise, Malaysia could become the rightful OWNER and SOVEREIGN NATION over Sabah. But I kept silent on this technicality.

Observe my UNPAID EFFORT my dear, so you will intelligently decide whether you should be grateful or doubtful of my involvement in this issue.

The recent PAJAK3 raid on Sabah is not good for the people of Sulu. It will block the trade between Sulu and Sabah that peaceful Tausugs and Sabahans have enjoyed for centuries. It will make it very very very difficult for us to deal with Malaysia on Sulu's claim on Sabah.

SIR JOHN, A GROUP OF SABAH CLAIMANTS FORMED A MANIFESTO OF SOLIDARITY FOR PEACE AND AGREED TO GET SETTLEMENT FUND FROM MALAYSIA WITH REGARDS TO THIS SABAH CLAIM. HOW WILL THIS AFFECT THE SABAH PREMS DEAL? Read more at http://www.philstar.com/headlines/2013/03/05/915945/sulu-sultans-widow-fighting-sabah-mere-drama

ANSWER: The technical term of that settlement is called QUIT CLAIM. When a claimant doesn't want to go through the hassle of claiming ownership, he is given cash and he signs a Quit Claim.

The effect of that is it will reduce the number of claimants and beneficiaries of the Sabah PREMS Deal. Those who signed the Quit Claim can no longer benefit from the result of the PREMS Deal.

In that article, the mere fact that settlement is to be paid, it means the claim is real and existing.

In short, the Quit Claim is good for those claimants who patiently ride on the Sabah PREMS Deal. I just hope that whatever they get from the Quit Claim will flow down and be translated into food for the family's table of ordinary people in Sulu, not just for themselves.

SIR JOHN, MANY POLITICAL CANDIDATES GANG UP ON PNOY AQUINO SAYING HE IS A TRAITOR TO THE FILIPINO FOR NOT PROVIDING MILITARY AID TO THE PRIVATE ARMY OF JAMALUL KIRAM III (PAJAK3). WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THIS?

ANSWER: Ohh I don't like PNoy too and perhaps I am the only blogger in the Philippines who have written tons and tons of criticisms on PNoy and given a new opportunity to criticize him I will. But on this PAJAK3 case, he did the right thing, he followed his mandate, he followed the law, and I hope he will implement the law. We, exhortationists bark a lot at mistakes, but we also reward good deeds with a good note.

Now observe those politicians who criticize PNoy on this PAJAK3 raid on Sabah and know their background. You will notice they are typically LAWYERS who have FRATMEN MENTALITY. Fratmen have common characteristics, they do acts of violence and corruption for the sake of their fraternity brods; and they too generally "enjoy" the sight of human suffering (initiations). Our nation is like this, so ugly, because of those fratmen lawyers. You want me to mention one Senatoriable who is a fratman?

SIR JOHN, HEADLINES SHOW 32 MORE FILIPINOS KILLED IN SABAH. WHAT DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THIS?

ANSWER: I LAUGH AND LAUGH! You know, I will only mourn next to the family. I didn't see any family who mourns. Show me first the identity documents proving those are Filipinos or at least tell the Stage Producer Jamalul Kiram III and his Malaysian Stage Director to show a list, personal record, and proof of Filipino citizenship of those persons.

Let me tell you the background of Jamalul Kiram III. In the 70's he made a lot of money from Marcos by bringing in farmers, having them wear Muslim costumes, make them carry guns for PICTORIALS to what later appears on broadsheet in Manila with headlines: "Muslim Insurgents Surrender to Marcos".

Now he's is back in business. So, tell me, did JK3 even HUMANLY CARE to get the manifesto (list) of the personal profile of the boys he used there?

So after this post, the producers rush to organize the Crying Ladies.

CORE MESSAGES OF MALAYSIAN MEDIA

QUESTION: Sir Jhon, Im a filipino here in in Sabah Malaysia, Im not from Mindanao, nor Manila, but I just want to inform you that Msia media is quite annoying. Saying that the Rass has been completely defeated, that the Rass has been wiped out , that thousands of Rass are otw here, and the craziest of em all is that Kiram III want to claim Sarawak too. Pls discuss this on your page but dont post my name or identity.

ANSWER: Special request pa talaga ha to be answered on main post. Hehehe. Sige pagbigyan. By the way, we don't use RASS anymore because I received a lot of concerns from the good people of Sulu, we refer to them as Private Army of Jamalul Kiram III (PAJAK3), and this new name originally came from me. Now let's begin to answer your questions.

The Malaysian media have TWO CORE MESSAGES for their people:

(1) Gain the trust of the people of Sabah by showing that Malaysian Forces are reliable to defeat any intruder, and

(2) Destroy the reputation of the MNLF by publishing a false information that MNLF is a collaborator of the PAJAK3.

Personally, I have a suspicion, though, that this thing is REAL. Knowing the direct payers, I see a stage show.

The only time I would start believing that this is real is when Malaysia issues official order to categorize PAJAK3 as a Transnational Terrorist and transmit the request for arrest to the InterPol, and the Philippine government will start arresting those directly involve in this transnational terror crime. Unless these serious actions are taken, I think everything is ALL A STAGE SHOW.

We are not interested on Sarawak.

MNLF's ECONOMIC PLAN FOR SABAH

Sabah will be well-planned and divided into several economic zones and Townships and we will offer it for lease and joint venture to MANY real estate and mineral extraction developers of many countries who can afford to invest. One zone could possibly be leased to Malaysia, another zone to China, another zone to USA, and another zone to British, and another to Arabs, etc etc. We don't want Sabah to be leased out to one nation, in fact, no one nation can afford the price to become exclusive lessee of Sabah. The people of Sabah, Sulu, Mindanao will greatly benefit from our economic development plan. So please, I hope Malaysia, who is the sovereign government in Sabah, will help us instead of block us. I am an economist and a real estate professional. Let's generate jobs and economic development. We don't have to pass through armed conflict in order to do these good visions.

We have similar plans for Mindanao, Sulu, Palawan, and Sabah. If Malaysia wants me to develop Mindanao first instead of Sabah, why don't Malaysia business representatives just come to me and talk to me about it? You don't need to create a stage show in Sabah, you don't need to kill people in Sabah. Come here to my office, lets talk business that will be benefited directly by our people, show me the money, and don't waste my time!

We also don't want to do business in Sabah if only it will result to make myself and you POOR just like Sulu citizen. We will not disturb you on whatever your status or job in Sabah right now. But please don't block us if we drive in multi-billion investments in Sabah that will give the people of Sulu and Sabah the chance to prosper and become rich.

SIR JOHN, IS SABAH PREMS DEAL ASKING MONEY FROM MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT?

ANSWER: No. Sabah PREMS deal is not a lazy beggar deal. Sabah PREMS Deal won't ask a dollar from Malaysian Govt. Sabah PREMS Deal represent the rights of the landowner and will make money in Sabah by zoning and subdividing the lands and leasing it out to whoever wants to invest on the land. Whatever money we collect, we remit it to Sulu.

In my estimate, collecting lease from its present landusers would already income at least P56Billion. Prospective investors from China, USA, and Europe would make us earn at least P100B a year.

If Malaysia wants drama by suppress the landowner from doing peaceful, legal, and decent business in Sabah, we will go ahead with the lease with another nations and the downpayment will be used to purchase arms and send in the private mercenaries from all over the world to help us occupy the land, burn all structure there that smells Malaysian, and of course the simplest thing to do is drive away Malaysian sovereignty. In the event invasion is inevitable, it will be properly announced so that civilians are given option to flee and Malaysian forces will have enough military defense preparation before we move in to ensure there is drama.


There are groups in Philippines now who wants to take over Sabah and we don't like them. If Philippines will take over Sabah, Sabah will become as poor as Sulu. So we say NO to Philippine intervention in the MNLF Sabah PREMS Deal.

SIR JOHN, I GUESS A LOT OF BIG MEDIA NETWORK ASK FOR THE OFFICIAL POSITION OF THE MNLF FROM YOU. I GUESS YOU GET TIRED IN ANSWERING THE SAME QUESTION ALL OVER AGAIN. WHAT DO YOU TELL THEM BY DEFAULT? ANY CUT AND PASTE ANSWER YOU CAN SHARE TO A SIMPLE BLOGGER LIKE ME?

ANSWER: Hehehe, that true Neil. Below is the default response.

The Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) has no prior knowledge of the Private Army of Jamalul Kiram III (PAJAK3) operations and MNLF has not provided and will not provide any financial, technical, weapons, intelligence, manpower, nor moral support to the PAJAK3.

We are closely monitoring the media reports on this event and are ready to provide negotiation technical assistance and unarmed humanitarian mission in danger zones whenever formally requested by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) of the United Nations.

We sympathize with the people of Sulu, Sabah, Philippines, and even Malaysia whose lives were negatively affected by this incident.

We exhort the Malaysian Authorities and Philippine Authorities to show sincere enforcement of laws against transnational terrorist organizations to ensure this incident will not happen again, and also help those who suffer.

We also exhort the media, both in Malaysia and Philippine side, to refrain from provoking and dragging the good name of the MNLF into this situation.

Our leader, Prof. Dr. Nur Misuari, a UN Peace Prize awardee, already said that we, the MNLF, have nothing to do with this armed conflict in Sabah.

SIR JOHN, I AM A TAUSUG. I SEE MALAYSIAN AS AN ENEMY THAT MUST BE DESTROYED. HOW DO YOU SEE MALAYSIANS IN SABAH?

ANSWER: Kid, I understand your parent's past sour relationship with Malaysia. Time can only be spent on one thing, not two things. As a people, you will not be able to move on forward to operate a business corporation if you continue spending your time cleaning your guns the entire day.

I see Malaysians in Sabah as CUSTOMERS. They patronize our land leasing business. They are already a captured customers because they don't want to leave Sabah. The price of the rent is very low compared to the peace of home it can give in return. They will pay the rent that I will bring to Sulu for your food on the table. So, please, go play somewhere and don't harm my customers.

SIR JOHN, MANY NEWS STORIES RECENTLY CAME OUT REFERRING TO NUR MISUARI AS "FORMER" MNLF LEADER. WHO IS THE CURRENT LEADER OF THE MNLF?

ANSWER: The one and only highest leader of MNLF at present is Prof. Dr. Nur P. Misuari. If you read or hear or watch news stories refering to him as "former" MNLF leader, there is no truth to that story, and that is a PAID PROPAGANDA by those who wants to create a "cloud" of the MNLF.

That is old strategy of the Arroyo Administration and I also noticed the Aquino Administration are beginning to use the same strategy against the MNLF. Another person you also have to watch who have this obsession of persistently "acting" like a self-claimed leader of the MNLF is Muslimin Sema -- he is the favorite actor of the Philippine Government in the leadership "cloud" on the MNLF.

We have a ONE MNLF Doctrine that says: "there is only one genuine MNLF, one leadership of Nur Misuari, one ideology of egalitarianism, one objective of independence". Anyone who defies this doctrine is considered a SEPARATIST of the MNLF. The 15EC of Muslimin Sema is one of those groups that are considered by MNLF as a separatist of the MNLF.

SIR JOHN, IS PAJAK3 SULTANATE OF SULU?

PAJAK3 is not "Sultanate of Sulu", okay? Behind the stage show in Sabah now is an employer-employee relationship between Malaysia and PAJAK3, so there is no need for a "foreign intervention" for these two. The foreign intervention (United Nations) that Sabah needs now is is a UN Mission that will closely monitor the Malaysia's SYSTEMATIC UPROOTING of Tausugs in Sabah and also the undocumented children of Sabah.

Would you please further elaborate the evidence that crisis in sabah recently is designed by malaysian black ops as per your statement.

Malaysia gets all the benefits of the scenario. The scenario helps Malaysia achieve their mission of uprooting the Moro/Filipinos in Sabah. The scenario helps Malaysia show to the Sabahans that they are reliable as they have Military capability to repulse an invasion. The scenario gave the Malaysian media the opportunity to implicate the good name of the MNLF via false news. The scenario slows caused the trade blockade between Sabah and Sulu, slowing down the MNLF's energy to pursue the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG is jointly manipulated by AFP and Malaysian Black Ops).

By background, Jamalul Kiram III is not an activist and never been an activist. He is a STAGE SHOW DIRECTOR specialized in Filipino Muslim Characters. If I were the talent searcher for scenario like that, no one else in Mindanao can do it better than Jamalul Kiram III.

Despite the show that they are already killing the beach boys, Malaysia will have all the excuses to never put their stage show director in the category of Transnational Terrorist Organization because he has all the evidence that will prove Malaysian Black Ops.

You they can easily mislead former and even currently active MNLFs to join the show for the purpose of implicating the MNLF, especially those MNLF in the remote area who have no access to this MNLF Facebook Page. We neither have any idea who that "Musa" is, nor any information on how an alleged MNLF ended up in there.

So now you see, if you are MNLF and you go there, you will never get the HONOR OF THE MNLF. If you are MNLF and you die for PAJAK3, we will tell the whole world that we don't know you and if we know you we will say that you are a disgrace to the MNLF.

SIR JOHN, DID YOU PLAN THE PAJAK3 RAID ON SABAH?

Sabah claim was silent already for the past 40 years until I masterminded the Sabah PREMS Deal and everything that is happening now in Sabah is a result of people having read my brainchild Sabah PREMS Deal. Sabah PREMS Deal is a CAUSE and it has two possible EFFECTS: (1) one is part of my plan, and (2) the other is outside my plan and a mere reaction of many parties.

The PAJAK3 incident is an EFFECT that is NOT part of my plan, but it is related to the Sabah PREMS Deal. Malaysia sending in military to uproot the Moro/Filipino and undocumented children in Sabah is an EFFECT that is NOT part of my plan but it is related to the Sabah PREMS Deal. So if you ask me if I "planned" the PAJAK3 the UPROOTING, the answer is NO. PAJAK and Uprooting is planned and executed by Malaysia as a reaction to Sabah PREMS Deal.

By threatening to ban you, I mean to sting you a little so you will be wide awake and aware that that question you are posing has a high potential of MISCHIEF.

SIR JOHN, SINCE PAJAK3's MISSION IS TO UPROOT THE MOROS/FILIPINOS IN SABAH, WHAT WOULD THE MNLF DO OR SOLUTION TO THE MATTER?

ANSWER: That's a good question, Tim. If you think MNLF will militarily respond to the situation, you will get disappointed.

In behalf of the MNLF, I already have alerted the NGOs who serve as agents of the United Nations to watch the uprooting and the undocumented children closely, in fact they are already monitoring it very closely and some of their agents are already in the ports of Sulu. The UN Report on that later on will be a strong basis to prove Malaysia's unworthiness to act as sovereign nation over the people of Sabah.

When PREMS land in Sabah, we will have to decide on what Nation (MY vs PH) will deserve to be sovereign on Sabah and the human rights record is a factor in the determination.

Those groups in Philippines who wants to reclaim Sabah should focus on monitoring and exposing Malaysia's uprooting and gross unfair treatment to undocumented children who were born in Sabah. A series of these expose publication will be very valuable and will have a great impact on the future of Sabah.

We would also look at how the GPH help Sulu during the Sulu-Sabah food blockade took effect. Did GPH facilitated a solution such as direct shipping of goods from Manila to Sulu? We would also look at how GPH effectively extended its consular services to facilitate proper documentation (birth cert and passport) at Sulu or Zamboanga Ports of Entry to the 50,000 undocumented Moro/Filipino children who are uprooted in Sabah.

SIR JOHN, YOUR REACTION TO THESE TWO ARTICLES?

http://ph.news.yahoo.com/blogs/the-inbox/malaysia-takes-ph-dirt-malaca%C3%B1ang-takes-timidly-095257582.html

http://opinion.inquirer.net/48619/fallout

ANSWER: Malaysia "mediated" (kuno) the MILF-GPH talks that produced the Framework Agreement for Bangsamoro. On the contrary, it is my opinion that Malaysia used and took advantage of the beggarship vulnerability of the MILF and GPH to "control" these two so she can push her agenda of silencing the Sabah issue. We therefore have a peace talk negotiation wherein the mediator's selfish interest were primarily served.

That MILF-GPH Deal is not good for the Bangsamro People, not good for the people of Sulu, and not good for the Filipino People. PNoy, senatorial candidates will surely suffer a backlash on this scandal.

The PAJAK3 are mobile, like a rabbit being followed by Malaysian Military, and they pass through Moro/Filipino civilian communities. From the start, I said these PAJAK3 are not protesters, not activists, they are there to lead the Malaysians to locate the Moro/Filipino communities that are being targeted for uprooting.

SIR JOHN, NATL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (NBI) IS INVITING NUR MISUARI TO THEIR OFFICE IN TAFT MANILA TO SHED LIGHT ON THE EARLIER ACCUSATION THAT MISUARI PERSUADED THE SO CALLED "ROYAL FORCES" TO TRAVEL TO SABAH AND FUNDING THEIR TRIP. WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT THIS?

Reference: http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/298973/news/nation/nbi-invites-kirams-misuari-for-sabah-conflict-probe

ANSWER: They mentioned "EARLIER" accusations. Who is "Earlier"? I have not heard of him. The NBI should find Mr. or Ms. "Earlier" first and ask him about his/her allegation.

Who is "Royal Forces"? What we have now is Private Army of Jamalul Kiram III (PAJAK3). They better get their terminologies straight or else it will confuse everyone.

Misuari will not travel from Mindanao to NBI. Misuari can't afford a plane fare for that invitation. There is an NBI office in Mindanao with staff, please tell them to come to Misuari, not the other way around.

By the way, how did NBI get the information that PAJAK "TRAVELED" to Sabah? From where? Through what means? We don't know these information. The government knows these information? So, perhaps it is true that the Philippine Government KNOWS THESE INFORMATION? Hehehe, the government should explain this "PRIOR KNOWLEDGE OF THE PAJAK ATTACK" to Malaysia.

SIR JOHN, what is that picture (Misuari and Kiram raising hands together) say?

ANSWER: The clan of Jamalul Kiram III endorses Nur Misuari for ARMM Governor. That's all that it is. No more. No less.

Other politicians went to Kiram, many of them, but he only raised the hand of Misuari.

Preconditions of MNLF-GPH Talks

PRECONDITIONS BEFORE MNLF RETURNS TO MNLF-GPH NEGOTIATION TABLE

1. OPAPP Budget is taxpayer's money for the peace process. Twenty-five Percent (25%) of the OPAPP's annual budget must be released for MNLF before the talks resume to fund the research and travel of its negotiators, think-tanks, top leaders, and technical resource consultants who must prepare and attend the talks. If this fund is subject to audit, the MNLF is willing to employ, on secondment, a government accredited auditor.

2. MNLF Leader Nur Misuari have exclusive right to determine who will participate in the talks on the side of the MNLF.

3. The GPH negotiators must be represented by an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Chairman of the Committee of Peace Process of the House of Representatives, Chairman of the Committee of Peace Process of the Senate.

4. The venue of the talks shall be nominated by the GPH and MNLF in an alternating manner.

5. Philippine Government shall compensate the MNLF an amount of P10 million a month (retroactive applies) for the delay of implementation of the provisions in the Tripoli Agreement.

6. Prof. Dr. Nur Misuari shall be paid just compensation at P20,000 a day for unjust political imprisonment from 2001-2009. We demand an apology from the Philippine Government to be formally delivered before the formal session of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

7. GPH shall unilaterally terminate and recant its conformity to the MILF-GPH Bangsamoro Framework Agreement.

MAGULO ANG PANGANGABIT

Si GPH parang si Mister. Si MNLF parang si Misis. Si MILF anak ni Misis. Etong si Mister, ginawang kabit si MILF -- taboo! Nagalit si Misis. Ayun sumama na si Misis sa Chinese na mayaman na gwapo pa. Etong si GPH, pangit na, mayabang pa, sira-ulo, nananakit pa, hindi naman nag-bibigay ng sustento, sarili lang ang pinagbibigyan ang luho. So, mas mabuti hiwalay na.



MARCH 2, A YEAR AGO

March 2, a year ago, we decided to drop the negotiations with the GPH and focus instead on strengthening the hearts and mind of our troops in the grounds. After just a year, we have already developed a higher level of military capacity, and proven when we tested our military might on the undefeated enemy of our enemy - the Abu Sayyaf. A little more time, konting push na lang ng ground work, more training, more lectures to prepare the mind and the hearts, we will soon be ready to spark the Bangsamoro National Revolution in Mindanao, Sulu, Palawan, and Sabah. There is no turning back. There will be no more talks. FORWARD MNLF! VICTORY OR THE GRAVEYARD!


ELECTION SEASON IN THE PHILIPPINES

... is the best timing and season for MNLF to militarily respond to the provocation of the Aquino Administration. When people begin to see loads and loads of AFP coffins being landed in Villamor Air Base, the nation will talk about the war and people will know that the factors that ignited this war could have been avoided if the Aquino Administration is a little honorable and smarter than it is now.

IT IS EASY TO START A WAR, BUT DIFFICULT TO STOP IT

All I can say to GPH, before this escalates into a war, please terminate that MILF-GPH Agreement, or else prepare and be ready for war. Fire also that lady in OPAPP because she is pocketing and diversifying the fund that is intended to subsidize MNLF attendance in the continuing MNLF-GPH talks on pending issues towards the implementation the 1996 Final Peace Agreement.

MNLF MILITARY EXERCISES

GPH was already at the verge of defeat during its war with the MNLF in the 70s. GPH can't defeat Abu Sayyaf for 23 years; but MNLF crushed Abu Sayyaf in just a week. MNLF Sulu pa langyan which is the smallest fraction of the MNLF troops all over Bangsamoro Land. Now, who is stronger now? Pagsamahin mo pa yang GPH and MILF and triplehin mo pa, mas malakas pa rin ang MNLF kasi mass-based private gun owners yan eh.

Misuari already made a statement that the MILF-GPH Bangsamoro Framework is a recipe for war. For us we treat it as a signal. The GPH really want war ha. Tingnan natin.

MNLF are not savages, we have rules of engagement that you can read in Wikipedia. Bahala na ang MNLF ground commanders kung ano style nila. In war, everyone will just think on how to survive the present and hope that war did not started. In war, we don't think about the future.

THERE IS NO RICH MNLF

Walang mayaman na leader ng MNLF. Yung mga fake na MNLF katulad ng 15EC, Abu Sayyaf, and MILF na mga clowns ng GPH, yun sila ang mayaman sa pangingidnap.

AGENDA FOR RESUMPTION OF MNLF-GPH TALKS

QUESTION: Sir John, we already have people in GPH working out a scheme to provide for the MNLF budget to resume its attendance in MNLF-GPH Talks. Sir John, in your blog, you mentioned "Alternating Agenda" and "Mandatory Dissemination". Can you elaborate it?

ANSWER: We will schedule 12 talks in one years, so that would be once a month. Agenda are exclusive issues to be discussed in a particular formal MNLF-GPH conference.

"Alternating Agenda" means MNLF and GPH will take turns in setting the agenda and venue of the talks. On the first month, GPH will set the Agenda. On the second month, MNLF will set the Agenda. On the third month, GPH will set the Agenda. On the fourth month, MNLF will set the Agenda. And so on and so forth.

Timely information dissemination is extremely essential in peace process. "Mandatory Dissemination" means that copies of the Minutes of the MNLF-GPH Conference shall be mailed to a list of high-profile MNLFs and GPH, shall be published in the Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines, and shall also be posted in MNLF-controlled websites. The MNLF may also conduct a Peace Mini-Summits wherever in Mindanao to announce the result of the MNLF-GPH Talks. A directory of high-profile MNLFs shall also be made available for the public and may be used by any organization in case they want to invite MNLFs to come over as guest or reactor.

EVENTS MANAGEMENT FOR FOR MNLF-GPH TALKS

QUESTION: Sir John, follow-up question lang po. We are the same people who are working out a fund for the resumption of MNLF-GPH Talks. Sir, John in your video you mentioned 100 Milion Pesos would be sufficient for MNLF to resume its participation in talks with GPH. How do you plan to implement the fund? Will this fund be given to MNLF? What is your suggestion on the sourcing of fund?

ANSWER: The MNLF will not hold the fund, but will only be spent exclusively for the MNLF. The fund will be sourced from GPH GAA and will be implemented by a private company. There will be a bidding on "Events Management Contract" that will award a P100 Million contract to a private sector company that is specialized in events management. Whenever there is MNLF-GPH Talks, it will be the function of the Events Management Company to use the fund to ensure MNLF participation, and their workload would include sending to invitation to Nur Misuari, getting the list of MNLF participants from Nur Misuari, purchasing travel tickets and hotel accommodation for the participants, and paying of per diem and professional fees, and transcribing the minutes of the meeting. The fund will also be used to mail out the minutes of talks, and venue/stage expenses for MNLF Mini Summits. Civil organizations who want to invite MNLF speakers may send their invitation to MNLF Leader Nur Misuari c/o the private Events Management Company.

With regards to sourcing, it is best if MNLF Participation in Peace Process becomes a Special Project under the OPAPP annual budget and becomes part of the PH General Appropriations Act. The Special Project Director who will hold an office in OPAPP must be nominated exclusively by Nur Misuari. The function of the Special Project Director is to award to the Events Management Contract to a private company, prepare the annual report of the Special Project, and defend the project fund during budget hearing in Senate/Congress.
