        Thank you very much max........Holy month of Ramadhan was started on September 1, it is a month where Muslim around the will world devote their time in praying, doing good deeds, a month of repentance and mercy to mankind. not to the hundreds of thousands of families who are sufferings from the atrocities committed against them,

        On dawn of September 1, at around  1 O' Clock first day of Ramadhan, 3 bombs exploded in the house of Abdulkarim family in Barangay Butilen, Datu Piang Maguindanao, HOMIDE ABDULKARIM 11 years old with his younger sister RADIAH ABDULKARIM, 5 years old was hit by splinters while tey were sleeping. HOMIDE was rushed to the hospital but declared Dead on Arival by a midwife in that town, Radia was able to survive, they are now staying in evcuation cenetr in poblacion Datu Piang waiting for mercy of releif organization. the bombs apparantly came from the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

        September 8, 2008, families, 6 civilians including 4 children and 1 four months pregnant woamn were massacred by Philippine Airforce while they were in the motorized boat to escape from the military bombings.Below is a story of the survivors during our ;
        Press Confernce last September 12, 2008 at Cotabato City:
         
           Vilma Mandi broke  down in tears as soon as she entered Lorenzo Hall of Estosan Garden Hotel in Cotabato City Friday morning and saw on the projector screen the enlarged, gruesome photographs of her slain children – eldest daughter Aida, 18, who was expecting her first baby in four months; Bailyn, 9; Zukarudin, 7; Adtayan, 5 and Faidza, 2

        As Vilma’s son-in-law, Mohalidin Unsi, also began to sob, the Bangsamoro Youth Leaders’ Forum, the organizers of the press conference, quickly turned off the Powerpoint Presentation of photographs and video footage of what happened here Monday morning of September 8.

        It took some time for Vilma and Mohalidin to regain composure, Vilma, especially, because since Monday, she has had to recount the tragedy of losing an entire family, before investigators, NGO representatives and relief workers, neighbors and the media. She had just visited her son, 13-year old Guiamaludin, who is recuperating from leg wounds. Immediately after the press conference, she was going to rush back to Datu Piang to breastfeed her newly-born,  Fairudz,  a survivor of war.

        Fairudz was 16 days old  when she lost her father and five siblings.

        Vilma and Mohalidin stressed “there was no firefight” in Barangay Tee early that morning as the military alleged. “The planes just came and fired away.”

        “There was no encounter between government and MILF (Moro Islamic Liberation Front) forces. The planes suddenly arrived and bombed the pumpboat,”  Vilma said in Maguindanao.

        ”There was no encounter. The planes just suddenly came,” Mohalidin said.  He counted “three double-bodies (apparently referring to Layang or SF 260); two OV-10s and two helicopters.”

        In the rush to flee Barangay Tee, Vilma, who was carrying her baby, Fairudz, and Mohalidin, got separated from the rest of the family and boarded another “pumpboat” (actually a small motorized banca) towards this barangay, at least a kilometer from the highway).

        Their boats were at the tailend of a convoy. How many boats were in the convoy, neither Vilma nor Mohalidin could say.

        Vilma’s boat was 10 to 15 meters away from the boat carrying her husband, Daya Manunggal, and their six children – the pregnant Aida, Guiamaludin,  Bailyn, Zukarudin,  Adtayan and Faidza -- when a bomb – or a rocket fired from the sky – exploded near the boat.


        Only Guiamaluddin survived from that boat. His eldest sister and three younger siblings died instantly. Another sister, Bailyn, died on the way to the hospital in Cotabato City, some 54 kilometers away. Daya’s body was recovered the next day.

        Mohalidin said Daya, apparently fearing the boat would capsize because of their number and because a sack of rice was also loaded on it, stopped at an  “island” (a small land mass) with about two or three huts, and had just asked his children to disembark when the something exploded a few meters away.

        Mohalidin counted seven aircraft hovering when villagers rushed to their small motorized bancas, to flee Tee for “safer grounds” in Butilen, across the marshland. In the third week of August, the start of the renewed hostilities between government and the MILF, the Mandi-Manungal family had fled Sitio Dagaren in Barangay Tee for sanctuary in Barangay  Butalo and returned home on September 1.

        Mohalidin  doesn’t remember how many bombs exploded the morning they sought refuge from war.  In his limited Pilipino, he said, “di ko kayang bilangin, basta marami” (I can’t count how many, but plenty)

        Zainar Mukalan, who lives close to the highway and Butalo bridge, told MindaNews  there was no exchange of gunfire before the bombs were dropped

              I am somehow less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.
              —Stephen Jay Gould
