This bloody jihad in the Philippines receives little media attention — not much chance of celebrity tweets calling for unity here. Kuffars are dying just the same, and have been doing so for centuries.
The majority Catholic nation has been under siege by Muslims waging jihad. Bloody terror. The Philippines has made extraordinary concessions to the violent Muslim uprising. But as we know, that only leads to more violence and more demands for an even bigger Islamic state. Islamic terror rages on in the Philippines. Worse, these supremacist savages are rewarded. The modern-day manifestation of the caliphate, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), had “observer status” in the “talks” between the Philippine government and the jihadist Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF). Muslim terrorists slaughter and the OIC “mediates.” The Philippines (a former American protectorate and 95% Catholic country) has had to give up territory and “share wealth” with these jihadi rebels.
The geniuses over at the New York Times declares that the eruption in Islamic violence in the Philippines and suicide bombings in Indonesia have found a common bond: ISIS. Wrong. It is Islam.
ISIS murders 19 civilians in the Philippines as 2,000 people are trapped by the Islamic terror group

- Most of Marawi’s 200,000 population on the island of Mindanao are Muslims
By Afp and Darren Boyle for MailOnline, 28 May 2017:
ISIS-linked terrorists have murdered 19 civilians in the Philippines including a woman and a child.
This week 85 people have died in street-to-street battles between the Philippine army and terrorists in the southern third of the country.
Officials said the 19 civilians were murdered by the terror group in the mostly Muslim city of Marawi, which has a 200,000 population.
Lieutenant Colonel Jo-ar Herrera said: ‘These are civilians, women. These terrorists are anti-people. We found their bodies while conducting rescue operations (on Saturday).
An AFP photographer saw another eight bodies by a road in the outskirts of Marawi on Sunday, with local residents identifying them as employees of a rice mill and a medical college.
Herrera said the military had yet to investigate the reported deaths.
The violence began when dozens of gunmen went on a rampage throughout Marawi after security forces attempted to arrest Isnilon Hapilon, a veteran Filipino militant regarded as the local leader of ISIS.
The gunmen planted black ISIS flags, took a priest and up to 14 other people hostage from a church, and set fire to buildings.
