Philippines & Islam

Pajamas Media blogger has historical picture of Filipinos relationship with Muslims.
Growing up in Bohol, Moros are indifferent Filipinos. Filipinos nonetheless like land based Ifugaos in Luzon. Sea based and head chopper culture develop the last couple of decades.
Part 2 of exclusive Pajamas Media column here
Many Filipino Muslims interacts with Christian Filipinos today. Culturally and spiritually, they don't assimilate well. But, Christian Filipinos tolerated them until they started chopping heads.
Most Filipinos, Christian or Muslim living in the Philippines, freedom in their hearts and minds are limited. Limited by family traditions, myopic view in education and trade and exchange anxiety.
