A powerful bomb packed with steel nails has exploded on a passenger bus in the Philippines today, killing at least six people and wounding 26 others in a possible attack by an extortion gang, police said. >>>>>
This story goes far into speculating that the bombing was by an extortion gang. If it is true, then it should have no link to being Islamically proper. However, separatist groups have denied this to be true. The tying the idea of this ‘speculation’ by the government to the separatist movements of Mindanao may actually be a false flag operation to further drive home how Muslims seeking independence and not allowing for a breach of the contract created with the government. “It’s okay to go back on governmental contracts agreed upon, as long we we’re the ones who do it,” – think many government officials.
If it is as the government thinks it is, extortion, then it should be treated as a crime and not be associated with the government refusal to own up to its end of the contract with Mindanao separatists. Although I can see where society in general would go astray when the people can’t trust their government.
