AFP Harassments in Sulu

I recieved an email from Adzfar Usman, MNLF Youth relayed to Samira Gutoc thru our YMPN yahoogroups. Heres the content:

Military ops still ongoing in the province(s) of Sulu, of course, in Basilan too. The worst thing is, instead of giving space to the civilians to harvest their fruits produce (now is harvest season), and despite of the appeal from the CSO’s and other government line agencies, thru the Peace Working Group of the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue, the ops is being intensified. and there were accusations from the civilians allegedly the military in the area were harvesting their fruits and stealing their livestock particularly chickens. This is in the upper part of Bato-bato in Indanan municipality. and this is maybe true also in some other parts of Sulu.

I hope through our little efforts, we can find ways how to stop this impunity against our people.

There always this kind of harrassments during wars. During the previous all-out wars of years 2000 and 2003 in Mindanao particularly in Lanao provinces, the military steals the spoils of war. The spoils – livestocks and belongings left by the residents fleeing to evacuation site or away from military operation. When the resident goes back to their respected houses their livestocks and important things in their houses were gone.

His Holiness

At Mindanao1081 Yahoogroups i received this forwarded email from Dr. Jose V. Abueva . I wonder if this really true or just being made for Fun.

The Pope was finishing his sermon. He ended it with the Latin phrase, “Tuti Homini” – Blessed be Mankind.

A women’s rights group approached the Pope the next day. They noticed that the pope blessed all Mankind, but not Womankind. The next day, after his sermon, the Pope concluded by saying, “Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini” … Blessed be Mankind and Womankind.

The next day, a gay-rights group approached the Pope. They said that they noticed that he blessed mankind and womankind, and asked if he could also bless gay people. The Pope said, “Sure”.

The next day, the Pope concluded his sermon with, …”Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini, et Tuti Fruiti.

After reading this it give me a good laugh but after re-reading and reflecting, this world has many nor different paradigm and many rights group and movement evolving. In this Masculine world or Patriarchal society dictates mostly how we run things in order. In Feminist Linguist they can argue to a radical change how it approach language like changing the term of history – HIStory to HERstory. So in feminist may ask: “What’s the herstory of the Philippines?”.

Best towards their wives

The sayings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him)

“The most perfect believer in the matter of faith is one who has excellent behaviour; and the best among you are those who behave best towards their wives.”

The above quotation was said by Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) Al-Tirmidhi Hadith 278 Narrated by Abu Hurayrah.

So muslim men who mistreat their wives is not a perfect believer or worst if he abused and exploit her wives is not a practicing muslim.
