The ultimate Solution for the Islamic political problem (ARMM, NCMF, and Bangsamoro) in the Philippines
As long as Islam in the Philippines remain under the umbrella of the Philippine government (unitary or federalism), the Muslims will never bend to the will of the Philippine law. All Muslims know this: Islam is the priority. Their religion comes first. Nothing should stand in the way.
Since the inception of the ARMM (Autonomous region in muslim mindanao) and even with the additional bonus of the NCMF (national commission on muslim filipinos), the Muslims continued to be unhappy, relenting, wanting and rebellious. They continue to want more. Why? They want to have their own government.
So you say that giving them the Bangsamoro state under Federalism will make the Muslims happy. Temporarily it will just like when the ARMM was given to them. Why will they be unhappy and want more you ask? One reason: The Quran. It dictates and tells them to have their own government and not under the rule of the infidels. With a Bangsamoro state within the Philippine Federal government, the Bangsamoro will still remain under the rules of the Philippines. Under the infidels. This violates the Quran.
There will be disagreements between the Bangsamoro state and the Federal government. If these disagreements continue to be unresolved because most like they will be religious in nature, the bangsamoro will ultimately turn tails and secede from the Philippine government and align themselves with the Islamic country of Malaysia. Since Malaysia has been involved with the Bangsamoro negotiations since 2007.
Why not just nip this at the bud. Let the Bangsamoro have their own country (independent) or a state aligned with Malaysia a federal government upholding the religion of Islam. Unlike the Philippines where all religions are equal. No favoritism.
Since the Muslim Leaders refuse to live in harmony with the other religions of the Philippines. And since Islam wants an autonomy of their own. Let them buy out their domain. Terms can be negotiated.
The Bangsamoro can have the provinces of Sulu and the Tawi-Tawi. The bangsamoro can have their own state without any support from the Philippines and it won't be part of the Philippines.
As long as the ARMM is under the umbrella of the Philippines, the Muslims will forever be in a quest for a state of their own within an Islamic County. That wish will never happen under the umbrella of the Philippines.
The negotiation will work because the Philippines will no longer spend the billions of pesos every year in sustaining the ARMM. The Philippines will make it work because they will negotiate for the participation in the mineral rights of Sulu and Tawi-Tawi.
This will be a win-win situation.
The Philippines will finally have its "separation and church and state" held inviolable.
The muslims in the philippine can live in harmony with the other religions. Those who don't can always leave. No more favoritism. No more NCMF no more ARMM.
