Where's the Media? Muslim extremists targeting Filipino Christians

Two hundred Muslim rebels attacked a bustling port city in the Philippines last week, taking 200 to 300 people hostage in the latest standoff between the Muslim-minority and the government. 
The fighting began after troops backed by tanks blocked the Moro National Liberation Front (MNLF) guerillas from marching into Zamboanga and its surrounding communities. So far, an estimated 62 people have been killed and 112 have been wounded.
Known hostages included Pastor David Nifras and Father Michael Ufana, a Roman Catholic priest. The MNLF guerrillas used hostages as human shields for protection against military and police. Latest reports from World Watch Monitor and Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines said the rebels released both Ufana and Nifras. Other news sources claim Nifras escaped. More than 100 people are still captive. 
“There’s this very complicated situation mainly because you have a few different Muslim terrorist groups that want to take and make that southern Philippine island into an independent Muslim state,” said Jerry Dykstra, director of media relations for Open Doors USA. “Christians are caught in the crossfire. This conflict has been going on for four decades.”

More Muslim against Christian Terrorism....but heaven forbid, we point that out. We don't want to break the medias hands-off bubble of silence to what's really happening around the world. After all, it's only Christians.
