The mission of ISIS is to establish a caliphate, an international Islamic state that transcends boundaries. 170, 000 have been killed in Syria and Iraq. As of 2016, there have been 143 attacks in 29 countries, killing 1,200 - 2,042 (reports vary), “ Pineda said.

The ISIS invasion of Marawi has already cost the lives of 100; 16 of them civilians including three women and a child, 11 soldiers and four policemen. The war is still raging. The toll may still arise.

The President, in his wisdom, has declared martial law. Some point out that the trouble is only in Marawi. Why the whole Mindanao? Bakit, naglalakad lang baa ng mga terrorists? Akala niyo diyan lang sila?

And the hue and cry! These people are afraid of the martial law bogeyman under their beds, oblivious of the reality that ISIS is here.

The ISIS is single-minded in its goal. World domination. Islamization. The propaganda of the ISIS calls for wholesale destruction, death, (sunugin, saksakin, patayin) of the unbelievers. Their militants will not distinguish if you are anti or pro martial law, if you are Yellow, Red , or Blue. Franklin Drillon, Winnie Monsod, the peanut vendor in the middle of EDSA traffic hell, or YOU must convert or die.

No to martial law? Peaceful  conflict resolution?
