CELEBRATING A HOAX?
Last March 18, a group of people (peace advocates they are called) trooped to Corregidor to commemorate the 47th anniversary of the Jabidah Massacre, acknowledged as the catalyst of the Moro rebellion in Mindanao. There, they shed heartfelt tears and offered prayers for the victims, spoke of the brutal injustice, pondered on the significance of the event on the ongoing peace process and the well-being of the nation, and unveiled a marker in recognition of the tragic affair that they attribute to President Ferdinand Marcos.
All the fitting drama makes for a compelling spectacle, except that the event they are commemorating could be just one big hoax.
The so-called “Jabidah massacre” has been the biggest hoax foisted on this nation.
If it is, all this is but one spectacular comedy.
