All about the genuine Sabah Claim Society

ATTENTION! This blog is the genuine Sabah Claim Society.

We are Philippine patriots who have grouped together from around the world and who created the Sabah Claim Society group originally on Facebook on 15 July 2011 and counted close to 6,000 members.

But on 5 October 2011 our group on Facebook was traitorously hijacked by two people we had invited to join us as group admins but who, we learned later on, had been hired to sabotage our patriotic group by a group of sinister individuals sporting fake European sounding nobility titles and other spurious Tausug/Sulu titles ['bestowed' and indiscriminately distributed on Facebook] and organized by a combined team of charlatans namely a datu (sporting a fake sultan title) and the latter's handler who is conveniently sporting an absolutely fake 'princely' title as well.

Please be warned that the said group of individuals, we believe, are in fact con artists out to "claim" Sabah for "get rich quick" reasons and are not genuine Philippine patriots. Their motive, we have discovered, is to be able to convince Malaysians that they are genuine Sulu royalty and pro-Philippine Sabah claim supporters in order to extract from Malaysia (which has control of Sabah today) a premium for letting go of the Sabah claim.

MALAYSIA did not exist 55 years ago; in fact, it was only formed 49 years ago. So how could they celebrate so-called 55th Malaysia independence???

MALAYSIA composed of Malaya Federation (which in itself is a federation of various Malaya sultanates), Sarawak, Singapore and Sabah began to exist or was formed only on 16 September 1963. In fact, Sabah itself ONLY gained its independence from the Brits on 31 August 1963 (and not 55 years ago!).

How could MALAYSIA dare declare that they gained their independence in 1957 when MALAYSIA did not exist until September 1963 inasmuch as Sabah -- and Sarawak, was still under colonial rule?
MALAYSIANS are fooling themselves and are revising their history... What they say that MALAYSIA gained independence 55 years ago is not only totally misleading, it is a lie! Hogwash! It is turning history into 'charlatanism.'

If we are not being clear, let's do a bit of clarifying and try to understand the difference between MALAYSIA Federation and MALAYA Federation:

MALAYSIA WAS FORMED BY 4 independent states that WERE ALREADY INDEPENDENT. They were as follows: the MALAYA Federation (which in itself was a federation of various Malaya sultanates), SARAWAK, SINGAPORE and SABAH (sadly, our Sabah was included) on 16 September 1963 or 49 years ago.

It was the Malaya Federation (and not MALAYSIA) that was given its independence by the Brits in August 1957. 

Malaya Federation IS DIFFERENT from MALAYSIA Federation (in fact, the letter "S" in MALAYSIA stands for Singapore and inevitably for the "S" in Sarawak and Sabah). MALAYSIA was not created until September 1963, hence could NOT HAVE BEEN GIVEN independence 55 years ago.

Furthermore, and this is important: These 4 states were no longer under British rule when they formed Malaysia on 16 September 1963 hence there WAS NO INDEPENDENCE TO GIVE NOR INDEPENDENCE TO OBTAIN!

Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore which were part of the OF 16 Septemebr 1963's FUTURE MALAYSIA were NOT independent yet in other words, Malaya or East Malaysia (where Kuala Lumpur is located) is hijacking history and waylaying Sabah and Sarawak! Fortunately Singapore left MALAYSIA Federation in 1965, otherwise they would be up in arms for Malaya's hijacking of history and for putting up false information. 

East Coast Malaysia also known us Peninsular Malaysia (where Kuala Lumpur is capital) is deceving MALAYSIANS in general and confusing their own people. Furthermore, they are spitting on the Sabahans by bandying fake independence dates!

Let's recap: Today, MALAYSIA Federation is composed of only three states (remember that they hijacked Sabah from us) following the 1965 expulsion of Singapore in 1965 or two years after MALAYSIA was formed. The three states that technically compose MALAYSIA today are: the former MALAYA Federation or known as EAST COAST MALAYSIA, SARAWAK and SABAH (which East Coast Malaysia calls today as West Malaysia.)

EAST COAST MALAYSIA/Peninsular Malaysia (where Kuala Lumpur is the capital) CANNOT DO A BLANKET declaration that MALAYSIA (which technically includes Sarawak and Sabah) obtained its independence 55 years ago simply because MALAYSIA WAS FORMED ONLY 49 years ago. It's a lie and is a terrible mockery of the people of Sabah and Sarawak.

Another back-to-back lie that Putrajaya officials and many leaders from Kuala Lumpur bandy about which irritates me: Barisan Nasional (one of UMNO parties) leaders go to the pulpit and say that MALAYSIA fought for independence because not only is it not true, it is also a back-to-back lie.

MALAYA Federation (East Coast Malaysia today) which is part of MALAYSIA today NEVER fought for independence. It was handed to them on a silver platter. The Malayans never fought or did sacrifices to have their independence from the Brits; the Brits told them in no uncertain terms that MALAYA would have their independence in 1957 whether they liked it or not. In fact, the Malayans were very worried when the Brits said they would be leaving them because the Malayans were frightened of the Chinese population.

If there was a group of people that tried to rebel against the Brits, it was the Chinese of Malaya (mostly in Singapore) but NOT THE Malayans. So for the Prime Minister of Malaya to say in his speeches that MALAYSIA fought for independence (already a lie because MALAYSIA did not exist in 1957) IS A HUGE UTTER LIE!

Not only has East Coast Malaysia/Peninsular Malaysia illegally hijacked Sabah from its real owners, they are now hijacking history to suit their greedy purposes. When will the lies ever stop?

NOTE: For purposes of distinction from Sabah and Sarawak or simply from MALAYSIA as a Federation, we have been and must continue calling the former MALAYA as follows: Peninsular Malaysia or East Coast Malaysia, capital is Kuala Lumpur.

BBC News: On This Day...
1957: Malaya celebrates independenceThe Federation of Malaya is now independent. The handover of power from Britain took place at midnight.Thousands of young members of the Malay, Chinese and Indian parties, which form the government, stood in darkness for two minutes at midnight to mark the official handover.
As the new flag of independence was raised they called "Merdeka" (freedom) seven times.
Tunku Abdul Rahman, the prime minister-elect, who led the negotiations with the British for handover of power, was hailed as the Father of Independence. For more:


However, it is important that the people of Sabah should be informed and enlightened of the actual historyof Sabah and stop the twisting of the facts of history by our leaders to suit their political interests without consideration of the real and inconvenient truth that Sabah gained its independence on 31 August 1963.
Independence Day of a nation is one of the most important and celebrated event. Rightly, the Sabahgovernment should celebrate Sabah Independence Day and should not bow to the imposition of thecelebration of the 55th year of Malayan Independence which has no relevance or meaning for Sabahans.

Debasing of the proud Tausug-Sulu culture must not be encouraged

Sultanate of Sulu titles which are European sounding are proliferating on Facebook courtesy of an individual claiming to be prince marshal of the Tausugs. The impostor is not even related by blood to the royal Kirams of Sulu. This vile individual is hell bent on debasing the Sultanate of Sulu culture; his con-artistry is debasing the Philippine heritage... Really objectionable!

The attempt to fool unsuspecting Facebookers may just work if we allow this shameless con artist pretending to be a prince of Sulu to go unchecked. His debasing of the Tausug/Sulu culture is undoubtedly part of a huge scam or plot to con people in the short, mid and long term. Please be warned. Don't let yourself be fooled by his antics. His conferring on every Tom, Dick and Harry on Facebook of some European aristocratic or noble sounding title has absolutely no value; totally illegal, i.e., fake. Remember that the Philippines is not a monarchy. The Sultanate of Sulu furthermore does not and has never counted European sounding titles in its rosters of royal titles. 

In other words, the idea that the Tausugs count among them nobles with so-called European aristocratic titles of baron, baroness, viscount, count, countess, marquis, and worse, duke or duchess or whatever invented European titles is utterly stupid and laughable in the extreme.

The Tausugs we know, and one of them is MNLF founder and famous Tausug Nur Misuari himself, find it extremely objectionable that a group of charlatans on Facebook are mocking their culture.

If you are in doubt, please check with the provincial government of Sulu or contact the Tausugs; communities of Tausugs live and do trade within Metropolitan Manila area... But bottom line is for all us to be vigilant and not to prop up such actions that continue to debase a proud culture and heritage by remaining silent or worse, joining this band of frauds and impostors! Thank you.
