Trouble in the Philippines

Today marks the beginning of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims across the globe will fast from sunrise to sunset, to celebrate the month the Koran was first presented to the Prophet Muhammed. It's being celebrated in the Philippines in the usual way - by jihadis blowing things up and killing Christians. The religion of peace celebrates the same way in England -- by murdering little girls, and in Egypt, by slaughtering Christians on a bus.

The Islamic State posted a statement about the fighting in the southern Philippines:
“Dozens Dead Among the Crusader Army in Marawi and in an Ambush on the Island of Jolo Sulu in the Southwestern Philippines" 
"East Asia -- 29 Sha'ban 1438” (25 May 2017) -- By the grace of God alone, more than 70 Philippine Army Crusaders were struck down, with others left wounded, and numerous armored vehicles destroyed in wide-scale attacks carried out by caliphate soldiers against Philippine Army headquarters, checkpoints, and positions in the city of Marawi, in the southern Philippines.” 
“The city is still witnessing clashes, and we ask God to facilitate for his monotheist worshipers. Meanwhile, 10 Army Crusaders are dead, among them four officers, and two military vehicles are destroyed in an attack by caliphate soldiers on the island of Jolo, Sulu, in the southwestern Philippines. May all praise be to God, Lord of all Creation.”
Official government sources reported 21 casualties on this second day of martial law.

The Islamic State claims that attacks also occurred on Jolo Island. This is the only source of this information. Jolo Island is a Philippine Muslim enclave.

An army spokesman said that the army was still fighting with 30 or 40 militants in Marawi City. 

It's not Islamophobic to point out what's going on. Well, not to me, the corrupt, lying, elite, smug mainstream media takes a different approach to the situation.
