The video of Commander Bravo that was filmed in 2009, claiming Bangsa Moro Muslim’s ownership over Mindanao goes viral after spreading in different social media sites. He believes that Mindanao is owned by the Bangsa Moro Muslims and it was not part of selling (to the US) because what was only sold to the Americans by the Spaniards are the Luzon and Visayas.
According to Commander Bravo:
“It will be made known to the whole world that we are saying these things to them; This Mindanao is owned by the Bangsa Moro Muslims; This was not part of the selling (to the US). What was only sold to the Americans by the Spaniards are the Luzon and Visayas. The reason that we are fighting here is that you people of the Gov’t., and you Christians, you take away from us our land. We hope that this will be translated in English or Tagalog because I am speaking Maranao here; That you will understand that if you want peace, then sign the MOA. But if will not sign the MOA then get out from here because this Mindanao is by the Bangsa Moro. When our ancestors fought the Spaniards, You christians run away. When the Americans came, the Bangsa Moro people again fought, but you christians run away again. Then the Japanese came the Bangsa Moro people fought, but you christians run away as usual, and you surrendered to them. Then the Americans came back, our forefathers fought but you christians run away. And you christians came, but you will never make us beg because our support is from God. If you can’t wipe out all of us, then we will wipe out all of you here…”
