Moro struggles: The birth of Fundamentalism/Extremism

Another armed group supporting an Islamic state came in the picture. This is the Abu Sayyaf, which is accused of terrorism by the government. They are opposed to peace talks between the government and the MNLF. The government has raised the issue of Islamic fundamentalism, extremist or terrorism. They have responded to the Abu Sayyaf’s violence and has launched an all out war against them. Some would say that the government authorities have linked Islamic fundamentalism in the Philippines to International terrorism. The MILF, MNLF and other Moro organizations are one in denouncing terrorist acts. However they believe that it will continue as long as the Moro problems are ignored by the authorities.
