That the enemedia never reported it doesn’t seem to concern anyone, least of all our clueless politicians. Â If it wasn’t for Â Gaddafi’s support for the jihad in the Philippines thousands of lives could have been saved.

“He was the first Muslim leader who boldly declared that he is helping the Moros (Filipino Muslims) in their resistance against… the Manila government,” the statement said, adding he gave food, money and supplies.
“He also provided the money for the purchase of Belgian firearms and ammunition supplied (to the Muslim rebels)… in 1972.” Â (Ahram Online)
More than 150,000 people have died in the conflict over the past four decades, according to the military, and sporadic clashes between Muslim rebels and government forces continue to claim lives.
