Peace In Philippines

The easiest way to capture the attention of the American public is to produce a story dealing with Muslim terrorists who beheaded some innocent Christian. The Philippines has witnessed for forty years a struggle between Islamist terror groups and the government. During this time period 120,000 people died and 2 million were displaced. Fighting occurred in southern  areas of the nation were the center of this conflict. But,  both sides finally agreed on a compromise that would respect the rights of Muslims.

A new state of Bangsamoro  will be created. The agreement provides for power-sharing, wealth sharing and demobilization of rebel forces. All will be reintegrated within Filipino society.

Gee, it is possible for Muslims and other groups to work together in peace.
