Pangasinan mayor orders Muslims out of Urdaneta

URDANETA CITY, Pangasinan: Mayor Amadeo Gregorio Perez 4th has ordered the clearing of the city of all Muslim residents, giving them three weeks to leave Urdaneta in the wake of his intensified campaign against illegal drugs.

The mayor announced the bold step during the flag-raising ceremony on Monday and instructed barangay (village) officials and the police to enforce the order.

Supt. Marcelino Desamito, city police chief, was also ordered to monitor all hotels and restaurants here after reports said these establishments were being used in illegal drug activities.

He requested the Sangguniang Panlungsod to enact an urgent ordinance stopping the entry of Muslims, either to rent a house or stay in hotels or inns in the city.

The Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) has identified the drug-infested villages where the Muslims reside–Poblacion, Pinmaludpud, Camantiles, San Vicente, Bayaoas, Anonas, Dilan Paurido, Nancayasan, and Nancamaliran East and West.

This seems like a good time to put some perspective on the Philippine experience with Islam with this 1930s movie on events that took place in 1908.

This movie also shows that the problem is not what the US doesn’t know, but what it has forgotten and what it is no longer allowed to say.

  1. I guess they have no damn Human Rights Commission. Good move from the mayor. Will look at movie. History is so important not to repeat mistakes of the past.

    • I recommend the movie. Its not hte best one you ever saw, its a bit of a Hollywood pot boiler. But its a true story and a really important one.

  2. Interesting idea, I wonder if he will be able to keep it going? Of course the President has given permission to any firearm owner to kill any drug dealer they see so this may last a long time.
