The MILF serves the people

THE Moro Islamic Liberation Front are upbeat. The BBC reports on MILF:

The Philippine government has reached a framework peace agreement with the country’s largest Muslim rebel group, President Benigno Aquino says. The deal follows long negotiations with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to end a 40-year conflict that has cost more than 120,000 lives. It provides for a new autonomous region in the south, where Muslims are a majority in a mainly Catholic country. The MILF is “very happy” with the deal, a spokesman was quoted as saying.

The MILF.

For brevity, MILF is the largest and now most influential Islamic movement in the southern islands of Philippines. It has embarked on peace negotiation with the Government of the Republic of the Philippines with the facilitation of the Government of Malaysia since 2001.

Thank goodness for brevity.
