Anong punto mo?

The Federation of Nationalist Eminral Republic wrote:Asigna: If I may ask, since you live in Zamboanga, does Filipino Muslims want separation or no? What do they think of groups like MNLF and BIFF?

No. Only nutheads like Misuari like that. They think of the groups there as crazy.. Muslims here are patriotic, some are jologs....modern, Some are forced to follow the fiery tradition of their families, they are different.

Probably because it is not Muslims who are rebelling..specifically Moros. The closest iíve been to a Moro is a beggar whom i offered money to. Moros are very very very poor. They refuse to leave the evacuation centers and find jobs and move to their new homes built for them because they are crazily attached to the sea. It has been their culture to be fishermen. Which is a crying call that tells us they seriously need to be educated with new labor skills.

Yet another sign the government is out of touch with these people. Can't they do some consulting first before relocating them? They're close to the sea, why not build a community which strongly revolves around fishing? We're supporting small fishermen thrive, and we're controlling huge commercial fishing at the same time, which by the way is way more harmful than small-scale farming. They should help them integrate to the society while keeping their cultures intact. A multicultural Mindanao is a great way to showcase diversity of cultures in the Philippines.

On a smaller question, don't they feel offended when they (Filipino Muslims) are called Moros?

No. I don't think so. Unless you put emphasis on the word "Moro" and say it in a negative tone.

Wala. But, given your style of writing (which I think I also have), I agree in part only at your post as I believe though the issue of extremism might be solved in individual personal relationships. It is under the assumption that all people take personal relationships as their guiding principle in life. Some people fight for principles rather than human relationships.

For example, even if all my family and friends are angry with me and the government is chasing me because I am a Christian, for example I live in North Korea, there is nothing that can stop me for putting away my faith.

Um, sorry for a mildly sarcastic response, but do fisherman have to be fishermen forever?

That kind of martyrdom only applies to persecution, but in extremism, things are different. Their martyrdom is stupid and unnecessary.

Indeed, we need better workers for our economy. We don't need to rely on such a humble source of income for centuries to come.

Traditional fishing methods cannot compete with commercial trawlers, which tend to deplete all the available catch near coastal waters. This forces fishermen to go further into deep sea areas but they don't have the equipment. Being out fished by commercial fishing is the one reason why Somalia's fishermen said they became pirates.

Sorry, I agree in supporting small-scale fishing. My answer is more of social welfare and employment rather than protection in small fishing industries. I said "Why Moros have to be fishermen forever when they will want to get better jobs and get good education?"

Though, protection of the small scale fishing industry as nod to cultural heritage and tradition is a very good idea, indeed, no traditional jobs should be forgotten and lost.
