I think the 90% Christian majority of the Philippines understand and share the feelings of the Sabahans. Middle age Filipinos had the felling of connectivity towards the Saba…hans for the Philippine history dictates the historical connection and experiences. If Sabah chose to be part of the Philippines, then their interest will be well protected and respected. The Philippine government is the bastion of democracy in Asia and the Filipinos knows it by heart. It is said the majority of the Christian Sabahans are fearful of the mass immigration if Sabah would be integrated to the Philippines, will that fear is unfounded, the Philippine government respect diversity and would surely protect the interest and right of its citizens. Like the Christian Filipino, Christian Sabahans will also enjoy the same, and be protected to the fullest extent of the law. Christian Sabahans should not be fearful to their brother Filipinos; they are the same and have shared the same in time and space. Let lost that fear, look forward for the brighter future! Spartly Island is not completely owned by Philippines the Philippines is only protecting the 9 islands against invaders and one of those island contains oil and gas and the china think it is unfair so they are trying to claim it note: as you can see all Islamic country has a oil (middle east) Philippines is a Islamic country before but it became christian when the Spaniards came and also there are oil and gas in mindanao Philippines that Islam people are protecting it but the government doesnt know this yet
Sabah and Spratly island The Spanish was forced to sell the Philippines to America for 20 million dollars when they learned that the USA has far superior battleship and …ammunition against their wooden Galleon's during the battle of Manila bay. The Spanish crafted the Treaty of Paris and put the technical description covering all the archipelago including the Sulu group of islands. The Treaty of Paris has put the USA in jeopardy by signing the one sided Treaty in favor of Spain. The setback was later found by the USA, but it was too late because according to the Treaty the USA has to protect whatever Spain or any of their relatives owned within the Philippines, not realizing that the whole archipelago land has almost land titled to the five main groups of religious order. This practically meant the USA bought nothing but the political administration only because they are strongly opposed by Aguinaldo in Phil American war, until they give independence to the Philippines, due to costly war in the Philippines. The sale under the Treaty of Paris is illegal because Spain included the Sulu Kingdom which they never defeated in war. The war protocol prohibit to include any territory which is not conquered or defeated and not part of the spoils of war. When Philippine Republic was formed, Sulu Kingdom was included for in fact the inclusion to the sale is only Luzon and Visayas. Mindanao and Sulu Kingdom is not included because the Spanish failed to conquer the Sulu Kingdom. During the time of president Macapagal , the Philippine government was given authority to claim Sabah in bahalf of the Sultanate of Sulu but failed until it was revoked in 1989. It is clear therefore that the Philippines has no more authority over Sabah and Spratly island. The owner of Sabah and Spratly is the Royal Sulu and North Borneo kingdom. The current and legitimate Sultan is his HRH Sultan Esmail D. Kiram (www.sulu.gov.pH). The problem of the kingdom is apparent between Malaysia and Philippines since the kingdom now is traditional rather than political, both Malaysia and Philippines were playing fire not to recognize the traditional governance of the Sultanate for fear to escalate as a political power. Malaysia and Philippines has clamped the economic capacity of the kingdom via proprietary property. This has been solved by the current hierarchy by appointing a private company in Hongkong, to undertake the total administration and management of the said proprietary property of the kingdom. Neither Malaysia nor the Philippines can manipulate the Hongkong Company politically since it is now in a neutral ground. His Royal Highness Sultan Esmail D. Kiram has given a "Decree and Authority to the Hongkong Company to fast track the implementation of the 1939 High Court of North Borneo Ruling to Audit and Inventory the property of the Kingdom in Sabah as well as the property in the Philippines..(www.sultanatesulu.org) The issue of legitimate Sultan is now overdue because the political manuever behind to pay many sultans of Sulu and North Borneo, to make it appear chaotic is finished. Royal Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo has only one Sultan from the hierarchy. The legitimate Sultan has to become a Maharajah Adinda first then Rajah Muda before he assume the Sultan Proper. None among claiming Sultans has become Maharajah Adinda and Rajah Muda, they claimed straight forward from the lineage the position without undergoing to the process of unbroken hierarchy to the throne. The Sultan chooses his Rajah Mudah, the Rajah Muda chooses his Maharajah Adinda, therefore before becoming a Sultan , he has to pass through the process of being a Maharajah Adinda to Rajah Muda then to Sultan proper. This eliminates the fake and bogus sultans. (www.wiki.answer.com) who is the Sultan of Sulu and North Borneo ?
Sabah is part of the Philippine terretory as stated in the Grade IV book used by our elementary students right now. Teaching our children of this claim, it should be exercise …by our government (Philippine) so for them to have faith in our system. Damb it! People in the southern part of the Philippines were fighting for ancestral domain yet they are not fighting for their right of SABAH. Why not start fighting in Sabah to regain it? Sometimes War is necessary to expedite the matter then may be later discuss it in proper. Because the Muslims who leased it always prefer to do transactions with co-muslims. Religion always have a role in this so conflicts of interests can't be resolved. The international law should disregard such transaction and respect the Phillipine's rights to its territory. Clearly, the international law is still being blind folded by pathetic excuses of religion and tradition.
By invasion i suppose. Personally, i dont think Sabah wants to go to the Philippines (or stay in Malaysia for that matter).
Because logically the Sabah is rightfully in the Philippine territory. It was just LEASED by Muslims residing in there who always love to claim things as their own regardless …of whatever legal rights of the country. It can also be linked to religion since Muslims always prefer to do any transactions with their co-Muslims for the sake of their ever-discriminating leg god allah's Islam. Religion and World power's influences will always play a big role in this dispute however, no matter how they claim whether be cultural or traditional reasonings, the rights should be to the Philippines and the international law should stop playing blind about this matter.
FOR BETTER INFO PLS REFER TO: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabah THIS IS MINE: i wish too that this will be discussed again AND I THINK!!! that the claim is upon to the presen…t sultan of sulu because he is a descendant of the original sultan owner to which SABAH was given to. at first the sultan of Brunei(which conquered SABAH and below)and his brother wanted to take over but needed the help of the sultan of sulu at that time at the end they had won so as a reward the brother gave sabah to the sultan of sulu but the British wanted to lease SABAH so the agreed with the sultan and i think it was about $1,200 only and this kept on and on until british said it was sold to Malaysia and that started it all but i think the sultan of sulu right now is still getting the money... but british had constructed bases... but now some questions are why is it revived? there are cases of deportations of and this is one reason second we want a bigger country meaning bigger resources... BUT EXPERTS SAY THAT THE BEACHES ARE BETTER THAN PALAWAN AND THAT COULD BE A REASON ++THE CONDITION IS PEACEFUL THERE WAS A PEACE TALK TO STOP IT UNTIL IT WAS REVIVED =) i want to revive it if i was the president... I HAVE READ some posts in Malaysia saying that it should be in Malaysia because it was handed down and there was a contract of sale and all that but one message got me it was that there was a filipino chief minister that handled sabah and i think it was 1966-1976 and he said that "he handled non-moslem badly and not as good as the moslem so no more Filipinos!!! this was excatly it i wanted to comment but no i think my knowledge of it was low hehe...=) and basically it was part of Malaysia which made them very conscious of happenings about it we just revived it because of the reasons above.... P.S. IM PINOY AND IM NOT A HISTORIAN I JUST KNOW THESE FROM RESEACRHING AND READING I HOPE THIS HELPS!!! AS FOR THE NO MORE FILIPINOS THING GO TO HERE: http://www.topix.com/forum/world/Malaysia/T7S5UU62KSOO4H8PT and find: (USING ALT+F) cina bangsa hebat) LETS JUST LET THIS TO THE GOVERNMENT OR PROTEST=) SO THAT IT WILL BE REVIVED BECAUSE I THINK THEY KNOW ALL THE info NEEDED TO CLAIM AND WE GOT HISTORIANS =)
I CANT SA MUCH BUT i have 70% on agreeing that the government should continue first they should let the sultan of sulu to figure it out to whom it should be given because it w…as given to his/her ancestors but because of the long time that people didn't mind it the history got jumbled up many said some things happened but i think the thing that really happened in the first before it got jumbled up was that SABAH was given to the earlier sultan of sulu and then around 1920-1963 it got jumbled up but the sultan of sulu should decide after all it is his heritage but due to the long time Malaysia was formed with sabah in it because it was under the sultan(the sultan after the war with his brother) that gave sabah to the sultan of sulu and some malaysians thought it was handed by the british to them (by the fact that the british leased it from the sultan of sulu but they know that it was from the sultan that defeated the sultan of the entire island) BUT I THINK it was jumbled with the british because they knew sabah was from the sultan that won the war so they thought that they should give it back to him again(THE SULTAN THAT WON IS THE ONE THAT MADE MALAYSIA)
Malaysia did not have interest in the spratlys, But when the philippines started exploring the island and found gas and oil resserve malaysian goverment suddenly had inter…est is spratlys. If your going to ask me How did the Philippines claim Spratly and Sabah Islands? Answer: I think the 90% Christian majority of the Philippines understand and share the feelings of the Sabahans. Middle age Filipinos had the felling of connectivity towards the Sabahans for the Philippine history dictates the historical connection and experiences. If Sabah chose to be part of the Philippines, then their interest will be well protected and respected. The Philippine government is the bastion of democracy in Asia and the Filipinos knows it by heart. It is said the majority of the Christian Sabahans are fearful of the mass immigration if Sabah would be integrated to the Philippines, will that fear is unfounded, the Philippine government respect diversity and would surely protect the interest and right of its citizens. Like the Christian Filipino, Christian Sabahans will also enjoy the same, and be protected to the fullest extent of the law. Christian Sabahans should not be fearful to their brother Filipinos; they are the same and have shared the same in time and space. Let lost that fear, look forward for the brighter future! Spartly Island is not completely owned by Philippines the Philippines is only protecting the 9 islands against invaders and one of those island contains oil and gas and the china think it is unfair so they are trying to claim it note: as you can see all Islamic country has a oil (middle east) Philippines is a Islamic country before but it became christian when the Spaniards came and also there are oil and gas in mindanao Philippines that Islam people are protecting it but the government doesnt know this yet. Malaysia is currently profiting out of sabah which is part of the philippines if I were the sabahan I would have joined the philippines instead,but I dont blame them they were tricked into voting against the Philippines. local Sabahan's illiteracy where exploited into voting against the Philippines. And if your going to ask me if Why Malaysia keeps holding Sabah if not belong to them? Answer: Malaysia has seen what the British has done and so they imitate to grab the opportunity when they got their independence from the British empire in 1963. Peninsular government of Malaysia slowly edge to make it appear Sabah is part of Malaysia by appointing interim administration and change the name from North Borneo to Sabah in a blink of an eye. It was also clear to the Malaysian Constitution that Sabah is a partner rather than a member state of Malaysia. It was also clear that Sabah is only interim member state. Sabah is now currently contributing 30% to the whole economy of Malaysia. From this standpoint, simple calculations will give us at least US$12 billion dollars generated income annually. Malaysia has all the reason to hold Sabah ,a merely US$1,500 dollars rental to Sabah since 1963 is being paid by Malaysia. In short, the only capitalization involved is the rental versus billion dollar earning every year, Is that not enough reason to hold Sabah? It was said that Malaysia is continually muddling the traditional leadership of the Royal Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo by paying fake sultans among the relatives to the throne, to make it appear that squabble is there to reason out that they do not know who is the genuine sultan of whom Sabah will return. There is also rumors that even the past and present administrations of the the Philippine government is continually secretly receiving dole out money from Malaysia in condition not to interfere or help the now traditional governance of the Royal Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo. And also if your going to ask me Why Malaysia says they own Sabah? Answer: The basis of Malaysia in owning Sabah is based on Landgrabbing Principle employed by the British government. The original lessee is a private british company, British North Borneo Company. The British government has signed a 'Friendship Treaty ' to the Sultanate kingdom .The British government broke the Treaty of Friendship when they absorbed the lease of which they are not an entity to the 'Lease Contract of 1878" and clearly stipulates the non transferrability. Malaysia followed this suit by absorbing the same when they got their independence in 1963 - If the modern world cannot understand this then let us live like a hypocrites and forget the Omnipotent creator that we all believe., whether Allah, God or Yahweh.The Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo now is politically diminished but not culturally and traditionally. the history never lie only the Spanish and American people who wrote the historical hoax of the Sultanate of Sulu and North Borneo Kingdom to achieve their colonizations. And also if your going to ask me if Is Sabah part of Malaysia? Answer: Sabah and Sarawak is legally not a part of Federal Malaysia based on conditional partnership they agreed when Peninsular Malaysia become Federated in 1963. The 3 major reason for Sabah and Sarawak to join in partner with Federal is Military , Monetary and Taxation. Sabah and Sarawak has partnered with Federal Malaysia based on 20 point agreement, their own State Constitution separate from Federal Constitution. The 20 point agreement has been forged prior to Sabah and Sarawak association to Federal Malaysia . Being a partner to the Federation does not mean to become a state of Malaysia. This is very clear that separate State of Sabah and Sarawak Constitution is in place. unlike the Peninsular Malaysia that all covers by Federal Constitution. The conditional partnership of Sabah and Sarawak cannot be contituted as full member of the Peninsular Federation of Malaysia. Sabah and Sarawak can at anytime decide if they still want to be a part of the Federal Malaysia through partnership by simply passing a law by the State Government annulling the partnership. This is the point of view by State MP's to segregate because the federal is abusive of the Financial allocation exercise over the two State. Sabah and sarawak combined contribute 60% of Malaysian economy and yet they only receive 5% of the total economic contributions to those two state. Sabah and Sarawak has their own rights, religions and land laws , they pay in return a tribute to Federal Malaysia in return of providing the Military and Monetary by paying excessive Taxation. The philippines can sustain sabah militarily and financialy
Both the Spratly and Sabah islands are territories claimed by the Philippines. The basis of the dispute of the islands is due to their proximity to other neighboring natio…ns.
Because Philippines is the only Country near in Sabah and Spratly Island and also the Philippines has a Right to Claim it it is on the Exclusive Economic Zone of the Philippin…es. And also is is a res nullius(nobody's property). and the Filipinos are the First who established resources there. DAMN YOU CHINESSE,MALAYSIAN and even TAIWANESSE and Idiots VIETNAMESSE.

Donated by the Americans. Plus no surface to surface missile, only equipped with 76mm guns. Malaysia have tons of modern frigates, corvettes & Offshore Patrol ships, all equipped with the latest & modern electronic sensors & surface to surface missiles. It's going be a massacre if your navy want to pick a fight with our Navy. Now still want to claim Sabah? What a shame.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippine_Navy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRP_Rajah_Humabon_(PF-11) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Royal_Malaysian_Navy http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scorp%C3%A8ne_class_submarine http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lekiu_class_frigate 7) Philippine Navy have no submarine. Malaysia have 2 Scorpene submarines & 1 Quessant submarines. The Scorpene submarine is considered as one of the best & quitest submarine in the world with torpedo & sub-surface to surface missiles. The sub-surface missile, SM-39, can be fired underwater to target surface warship 50km away & equipped with GPS, in case want to fire at ports. Actually, Malaysia bought 4 Scorpene but claim only 2.

Can u guys have dignity & buy those military hardware using your own money instead of BEGGING from other countries to supply it for u guys? And please, if u want to buy any military hardware, don't buy a 2nd hand one, buy a brand new ones. If u guys still buy 2nd hand military hardware instead of brand new ones, it just show how cheap & poor u are. U guys cannot even buy a brand new military hardware, always BEGGING from other countries for 2nd hand ones, now want to claim Sabah?

of course specially the sultan of sulu under the kiram carpenter agreement.
Up to present, Malaysia is still renting Sabah to Philippines. Yes, the Philippines can get it back because it legally belongs to the Sultanate of Sulu (Philippines). The Best… way for the Philippine government to claim it back is improve first its Economy. Make the Philippine economy more than enough to support and for the Sabahans and Sarawakans to be happy to go back and be united again with their Muslims brothers and Christian neighbours in Mindanao.
No. It is not reasonable. Sabah is part of the Philippines according to the Law. Malaysia just got a hold to Sabah temporarily as they are closed to British who been leased… by a Sultan of Sulu for Sabah. The Malaysian Government resistance of returning Sabah Back to the Philippines is yet unlawful and this could make this a big shame to the Malaysian Government practicing wrong practices of Law. On September 12, 1962, during President Diosdado Macapagal's administration, the territory of North Borneo, and the full sovereignty, title and dominion over the territory were ceded by the then reigning Sultan of Sulu, HM Sultan Muhammad Esmail E. Kiram I, to the Republic of the Philippines.  The cession effectively gave the Philippine government the full authority to pursue their claim in international courts. The Philippine take over to Sabah is not needed because Sabah is Already part of the Philippines from the Start. And the Philippine Government must have to show up and exercise its governance to the State of Sabah as it is really needed.
Do Philippines need to contest to the International Court of Justice for the government take over to Sabah?
No! The Philippine must have to send troops and order the state of Sabah anytime as it is under the Philippine Territory. Sabah is longing to have the Philippine Government fo…r how many years and it must be satisfied in an easy way. Malaysia must have to back-off for Sabah is not under their territory from the very start.
emillio aguinaldo do you have more information about emelio aguinaldo that he is the first claimant of Sabah
the phllipines will get more land area and will own more resourses
