MANILA, Philippines — Three senators have strongly opposed the proposed granting of amnesty to Abu Sayyaf Group, saying this would only send a wrong signal to other “criminal elements.”

“Amnesty for Abu Sayyaf is a bad idea. They’re an extremist fringe who should be taught to follow law and order,” Senator Aqulino Pimentel Jr. said on Wednesday.

“It sends a terrible signal,” said Senator Francis Pangilinan.

“It creates the impression that criminal elements involved in heinous offenses will be accommodated by an amnesty proclamation. Respect for our laws will be diminished severely by an amnesty proclamation,” he said.

An amnesty proclamation for Abu Sayyaf Group, Pangilinan said, would also give an impression the government was incapable of enforcing laws.

* Diddling and fiddling doesn’t work. The only way to get on top of this is to summarily execute all MILF leaders, to raze every mosque in the land and hang the clerics. To really clean this place up means to round up the whole Muslim population and put them in re-education camps for as long as it takes to get them to swear off the jihad ideology. But that would be undemocratic. It would ‘violate their human rights’ and their freedom of religion, which Muslims not only don’t grant to others, but involves ‘striking terror in the hearts of the unbelievers’ and to ‘kill the unbelievers wherever you find them…’

Christian group vow to ‘execute’ Muslim rebels terrorists in Philippines

A Philippine Christian vigilante group warned yesterday that it will start executing 10 Muslim rebels for every civilian killed, as violence in the south of the country intensifies.

The Reform Ilaga Movement, dormant for decades after gaining prominence in the 1970s during the early stages of the rebellion, have again been in the spotlight in the face of a new campaign by Muslim rebels.

Rebels Muhammedan headbangers last week killed scores of people in attacks on Christian villages and towns in fighting that has intensified since a breakdown in talks to end the insurgency by creating a semi-autonomous Muslim region.  

“If the fighting continues, for every civilian killed, we will execute 10 Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) rebels,” said Mike Santiago, a spokesman for the vigilante movement.

“We are for arming civilians in areas targeted by MILF and for them to defend their families and property,” he told reporters in his hideout camp in the south of the country.
