You bet they do.
Ghaddafi was their biggest benefactor. Saif al Islam, his son who was recently captured in Libya and had his fingers cut off, Â supplied them with weapons and everything they needed to keep the jihad going. If al Jizz claims that kind of support was about ‘peace‘ you better tell them to paint a big fat pussy on somebody elses cheek.
The Philippines goverment will resume talks with the separatist group, the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, in the south later this month.
The negotiations are a step towards resolving a decades old conflict and bringing peace to the region.
“Peace” in Islam means no more resistance to Islam:Â
‘And fight them until there is no more fitnah (disbelief and worshipping others besides Allah) and (all and every kind of) worship is for Allah.
(Surat-al-Baqarah, ayah 193.)
Â Talks have been ongoing for some time, but a little-known fact is the important role that Muammar Gaddafi, the late Libyan leader, played in
negotiating peacesupporting jihad in the southern Philippines.
Gaddafi’s death in 2011 is expected to have a wide-ranging impact on the Moro independence campaign.
