Peace in Philippines Between Muslims and Catholics

The Philippines and the country's largest Muslim rebel group have signed a historic peace agreement, after 17 years of negotiations and decades of fighting that killed at least 120,000 in the southern island of Mindanao.

The deal between the government of President Benigno Aquino and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) was signed on Thursday at the presidential palace in the capital Manila.

"Let us cast aside past prejudices and contribute to the atmosphere of optimism that has for the first time in a long while become prevalent in Muslim Mindanao," Aquino said before the signing.
Also present at the ceremony were MILF chairman Al Haj Murad Ebrahim and Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. Malaysia served as the main mediator of the talks.
More than 500 MILF rebels were also invited to the ceremony, as well as Philippine officials and diplomats.

"The comprehensive agreement on Bangsamoro is the crowning glory of our struggle," Murad said refering to the Muslim homeland.

The agreement will create the Bangsamoro autonomous government with its own budget and police powers. A transition body will be put in place with local elections scheduled in 2016.

Christians having dreams and converting to Islam:

Invitation to Islam for Catholics

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.
