Captain Ed notes that my parents’ native land is going soft in the wake of threats by Islamofascists who have apparently kidnapped a Filipino in Iraq. In response to the kidnappers’ demand that the Philippines withdraw from Iraq, the island nation has barred Filipino workers from traveling to Iraq. Ed comments:

[W]hat Manila has done is to reward the terrorists and guaranteed more kidnappings of its citizens. Even if the Filipinos restart their deployment, its lack of consistency has signalled the Islamofascists that they can influence Manila’s policy, a lesson that certainly will not be lost on the native Islamofascist Abu Sayyaf insurgency in the [Philippines]. Just as with the Spaniards, the Filipinos have given terrorists a public victory and made the struggle against these lunatics harder on the rest of us.

He is absolutely right. I’m ashamed for the Philippines, which has vacillated in the War on Terror, negotiated with the Islamofascists, and endangered us all.

UPDATE: Belmont Club, Philippine Commentary, and Cranial Cavity all have more on weak-kneed Filipinos giving in to terrorism.
