The Moro National Liberation Front isn’t just a terrorist group. It’s a terrorist group recognized by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation. And it’s demonstrating the Islamic notion of cooperation [2] in the Philippines.

Rogue Muslim rebels seeking to declare an independent state put a dozen civilians tied together by rope on display as a human shield on Wednesday as a standoff with security forces in a southern Philippine city entered its third day.

Waving white flags, the hostages shouted “please don’t shoot” at soldiers as rebel snipers perched on roof of a residential block fired at the troops about 500 meters away in the Santa Barbara district of Zamboanga, a key port on the southern island of Mindanao.

The news report does not mention it by Zamboanga is a largely Christian city in the largely Muslim south. A pastor has been taken hostage and several Christians are among the many injured in an attack by a rebel group in the Philippines.

Asamin Hussin, National Security Commander for the MNLF, told AP news agency that they wanted independence.

Sure. Being independent makes it easier to kill non-Muslims. Just ask the Syrian rebels and any surviving Syrian Christians.
