Wonderful: UN ‘Peacekeepers’ Order Filipino Troops to Surrender to ISIS; Order Refused

Posted by on Sep 01, 2014 at 9:33 pm

Hey, we don’t want to upset these savages now, do we?

The Philippine military said Monday that a UN peacekeeping commander in the Golan Heights should be investigated for allegedly asking Filipino troops to surrender to Syrian rebels who had attacked and surrounded their camp
Gen. Gregorio Pio Catapang said he advised the 40 Filipino peacekeepers not to lay down their arms, and they defied the UN peacekeeping commander’s order. Instead, they staged a daring escape from the Golan camp over the weekend, ending a tense, dayslong standoff.

The disagreement is another blow to a UN peacekeeping mission that has been threatened by an escalation of violence in a buffer zone it has been guarding between Israel and Syria. A number of countries have withdrawn their troops from the peacekeeping force due to rising rebel attacks.


Forty-five Fijian peacekeepers who surrendered their firearms to the rebels last week are still being held by the al-Qaida-linked insurgents.

They’ll soon be losing their heads.

The commander of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force, or UNDOF, which supervises the peacekeeping mission in Golan, was overseeing talks with the Syrian rebels to secure the freedom of the Fijians. However, Catapang said he would not agree to any resolution of the hostage crisis that would put Filipino troops in grave danger.

When the besieged Filipino troops sought his advice after they were ordered to lay down their arms as part of an arrangement with the rebels to secure the Fijians’ release, Catapang said he asked them to defy the order.

“I told them not to follow the order because that is a violation of our regulation, that we do not surrender our firearms, and, at the same time, there is no assurance that you will be safe after you give your firearms,” Catapang said.

“Our stand is, we will not allow our soldiers to become sacrificial pawns in order to save the Fijians,” Catapang told The Associated Press. “They should look for other ways and means to save the Fijians.”

We think ISIS is more interested in  submission. Just a hunch.

    Filipino troops know better than to surrender to head-chopping Muslims. They deal with a lot of that already in Mindanao.

    Way to go , General Catapang! (btw, Catapang in Filipino would literally translate into “Very Brave” or “Very Fierce”)

    I love that name! UN Disengagement Observer Force!

    I hope someone captures that UN commander and gives him the full rebel hospitality treatment.

    Kudos to the Filipinos for their escape. Now, escape from the UN.

    So…let me understand this. 45 Fijian “peacekeepers” surrendered to these animals previously and are being held. As part of the negotiation for their supposed release another 40 Filipinos “peacekeepers” were supposed to surrender to these same animals??

    Ok. Yeah sure. The math works I guess: 45 Fijians > 40 Filipinos.

    The Filipino troops are very likely Roman Catholic and fully understand what their surrender would result in.

    Regina martyrum, Ora pro nobis.

    Good for the Filipinos! Glad there are some people that still understand honor and respect reality.

    “there is no assurance that you will be safe after you give your firearms”

    Good advice for anyone.
