Fiji loses first soldier in Sinai

Fiji has lost its first soldier in Sinai.


The death comes three weeks after the first batch of soldiers left for the Golan Heights and a week before the second deployment is due to follow.

The name of the soldier killed in Sinai has not been released with the RFMF saying his family have to be notified first.

Fiji's Multinational Force and Observers in Sinai in 2011 with illegal president.
The news broke this afternoon with the land force commander Mosese Tikoitoiga saying:
"We’ve had an unfortunate incident in the last 24 hours, one of our junior NCO’s has passed away in the operation. 

"We cannot reveal the name at the moment, because families and relatives have to be informed first. Autopsy is being carried out now in Israel. We will get the full report once that is compeleted. 



"Our condolences to the family and we will await the remains of our soldier to come back and will give him full military honours for the contributions not only to the RFMF but also to the nation.”

The Sinai death raises the spectre of the recent deployment to the Golan Heights and a promise by Frank Bainimarama to send up to 500 to help the United Nations patrol the area between Syria and Israel, made dangerous by the escalating war in Syria.

 Meanwhile fears mount for Fiji soldiers in the Golan Heights.
Bainimarama has also now approved a basic recruit course, which will allow the RFMF to sign up another 450 recruits next year.

Sinai or Golan Height, Fiji soldiers are in middle of a war zone and far, far way from home. End of story!

Does anybody know what salaries our boys get to serve as so-called peacekeepers?

I know the RFMF budget has been increased in recent years but what do they get in the hand - anybody know?

It appears that C4.5 is to trying insinuate a dubious link of the death of the Fiji soldier in MFO Sinai, to the recent deployment to UNDOF Golan heights.

Indeed, quite a specter- when C4.5 is hoisted by their own petard.

I'd go with C4.5's take on Fiji ahead of the regime and Qorvis propaganda any day.

RFMF: We’re secure

Concerns on national security after Golan deployment put to rest

By MAIKA BOLATIKI

The security of the nation is very much intact.
This was the reaction from the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga.
The Fiji Sun had posed the question of security in Fiji to the Land Force Commander, after more of our soldiers were drafted into peacekeeping duties in the Golan Heights, at Rewa District School on Tuesday.
Colonel Tikoitoga admitted that the RFMF faced some challenges with the requests from the United Nations for more Fijian peacekeepers but this was being handled through careful planning.
By August he said there would be a total 531 soldiers in the Golan Heights.
“Currently we have 334 soldiers in Sinai and 134 in Iraq,” Colonel Tikoitoga said.
In September there will be another rotation to Sinai.
He however said, with RFMF’s sound planning they have managed to fulfill their peacekeeping engagements and likewise maintaining security in the country.
He assured the nation that the security is in the good hands of the RFMF with the help of the Fiji Police Force.
“Security here in Fiji will at all times be intact.”

Recruitment
There will be recruitment this Friday at the Queen Elizabeth’s Barracks (QEB) after cabinet had approved two recruitments.
He said with the number of our soldiers involved in peacekeeping duties overseas, they needed to have a lot of reserves here in Fiji so that when they came back they were replaced.
Colonel Tikoitoga said the RFMF wanted peacekeepers to spend more time with their families before being called for another rotation.
He said Friday’s recruitment drive and the second one next year, was critical in ensuring the RFMF had enough soldiers on hand.
The recruitment is open to all Fijians and not only to the iTaukei as claimed by RFMF critics.
“The RFMF is an institution for all races and critics should not be spreading the other side of the story that it is just for the iTaukei people.”
Colonel Tikoitoga stressed the recruitment is open to all Fijians – and not only to the iTaukei as claimed by some RFMF critics.

If your update is true then what been said by many against such "ONE MAN DECISION" may come to pass soon. The more deaths from Golan Height and Sinai that may come through will raise an alarm and fears to the public in general. To promote Fijian's personality as Christian amongst 100% Muslim faith which are full of hate, political and religious conspiracy for over 5000 years instability is suicidal to our Soldier Boys and Girls.

United Nation is one arm of the evil New World Order to begin with. The other arms are Freemasons and Secret Society and many more. Wars is another area of depopulation created by the New World Order to control the world.

As Christian, we are limited to 40 hours only by the Government for praising and worshiping the God that we love most in our General Conference. Freedom to pray in groups for the safety of all our families and nation is a crime today as we could be investigated by Police and Army for "Unlawful Assembly".

"God have mercy on us and protect our sons and daughters in Golan Height, Syria and Sinai. To the family of the dead soldier boys please wipe their tears, bless and give them joy and so as to all of us who sharing their sorrows, pains and sufferings too - Amen"

Thank you senior army officer your comment is very shallow and naive.Do you understand your role?military,police have no part to play in politic Military is there to guard our nation from foreign invaders I.e military. In cases where law and order in local situation breaks down military moves in to work with police a after police commissioner informs the PM and President that police can no longer take care of the situation. Otherwise you role is peace keeping mission and back to the camp getting yourself physically fit and get paid.Military and Police are the arms of the government not the illegal government but legitimate and democratically elected government. May be Bainimarama has done something good but the problem is his entry into the government leading role is illegal so that nullifies the legitimacy of what he is doing because at the end of that illegal journey he will have to answer according to the law something he can not evade. Secondly ,politic is a totally different ball game and you can be very very frustrated if think you know what you are talking about yet you are far away from it. So my advice to you soldier boy be who you are think outside of the box so that you can find the truth and follow what is just and right for the people of Fiji who you suppose to look after and not ill treat. In fact it's the people who should be making the decision not the military through deception and threat.
So let the politician do their part whilst you and the military do your part in looking after their security externally as internal security is
the responsibility of police. Thanks soldier boy.

Tikoitoga are you aware that the Fiji military s the biggest security risk in Fiji ?Seurity in Fiji has never been threatened until 1987 when the first coup happened.From then on Fijis security has always been under threat by the military.Now the question of coup culture as impose by Bainimarama is hanging out there and he is now saying or posing the question of how this beast can be controlled..it is very easy to control that ugly beast.How ? The military and its leadership to be educated to fully understand their roles and functions with regards to the governance and the government operations and administration.secondly the Fiji military to have expatriate commander to maintain its neutrality if we have local commander either Fijian or Indan they are likely to be influence easily by politician. The current situation was created by Bainimarama and his military ,In 2006 Fiji was under no security threat .the local law and order situation was perfect ,corruption was unde control. As people were I nvestigated and charged by police so Tikoitoga can come out and justify the 2006 military coup

The Loyal Fijian Resistance does not recognise the legal standing of the Bainimarama regime to order any deployment of our armed forces, including to the Golan Heights in support of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force.

Nonetheless, we recognise the importance to international security of UNDOF. We share the United Nations' grave concern at recent violations by the Syrian Armed Forces in the mission's area of operations, and call on all parties to scrupulously and fully respect the terms of the 1974 Disengagement of Forces Agreement.

We mourn the loss of a Fijian soldier and extend our deepest condolences to his family. We call on all Fijians to support our troops as they go into harm's way in the interest of preserving world peace, and we pray their speedy and safe return.

Our armed forces have a reciprocal and, indeed, sacred obligation to support the people of Fiji, who they are charged to defend. Sadly, in meeting this responsibility, they have thus far failed us spectacularly. Soldiers must obey lawful orders, but they need not obey unlawful orders, nor do they cease to become moral agents upon enlistment. We call upon Fiji's security forces to perform their duty to defend Fiji by arresting those rogue elements supporting Bainimarama's usurpation.

All Fijians, military and civilian, are morally obligated to resist this illegal regime. We ask you to join us in this resistance. Only if we unite can we once again make Fiji a land of freedom, hope and glory, to endure whate'er befall.

Mortar shells are flying over the Fijian camp in the Golan Heights in Syria, a senior officer of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces has said.
Land Force Commander Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga (pictured right) said this was the latest brief the military received yesterday from the Fijian contingent serving in the Golan Heights.
This new development, Colonel Tikoitoga says, is the result of the Syrian violence spilling across the border into the Israeli-controlled territory.
The report said Syrian mortar shells that flew over the Fiji camp had landed inside Israeli-held areas.
Colonel Tikoitoga said the mortar shells were directed to targeted areas but the Fiji camp was not a target.
On Tuesday, the report said a number of what appeared to be mortar shells struck the Golan Heights, causing no damage.
Colonel Tikoitoga said Fijian peacekeepers had identified where the mortar shells were fired from and where they landed.
“They have taken note of all the activities and sent a report to the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force headquarters,” he said.
Colonel Tikoitoga has assured the nation and family members that the Fijian peacekeepers in the Golan Heights were safe.
He admitted that the peacekeepers were operating in a volatile area but they had adapted themselves well to the environment.
Armed elements, he said, were also within the Fiji area of operations.
He said the soldiers had started their public relations programme activities and have received positive feedback from the local communities.
“They have also built up their relationship and have started to make inroads into the communities within their watch area.”
Colonel Tikoitoga said they were looking forward to the arrival of the next contingent of 320 soldiers who would be deployed soon to the Golan Heights.
Government is committed to sending over 500 Fijian sold

Well done Coup 4.5 you are the voice of the people because Bainimaramas regime are not allowing freedom of speach and they are clamping down on all media outlets thinking that they can stop people from voicing their concern and critics against the illegal regime.You are educating the whole world on the reality of what is actually happening on the ground in Fiji so keep up with the good job because Bainimarama"s illegal regime is on its way down.Thay have put themself in a tight corner promising election in 2014 and now they reaslise that they will loose control of the power which they have enjoyed in the last 7 years but they cant turn the clock back as the whole world is pushing for the election to be done so Bainimarama and his followers its realisation time.

The overwhelming turnout for the Republic of Fiji Military Forces’ (RFMF) recruitment drive in the three centres around the country has made the military cancel a planned second one.
Land Force Commander, Colonel Mosese Tikoitoga, told the Fiji Sun yesterday that more than 5000 youths had reported for recruitment in the three centres – Suva, Labasa and Lautoka, and by today they expected to have 8000 – 10,000.
He said Cabinet had approved two recruitment drives, one for this year and the other next year for the recruitment of 900 to join the Territorial Force (TF).
However, the Land Force Commander said with the overwhelming response they would select 450 for this year and another 450 for next year in this recruitment.
“We don’t need to have another recruitment drive as we will select the 450 required for this year and the other 450 for next year from this recruitment,” Colonel Tikoitoga said.
For the first 450, he said 225 will march in for their 12 week training in August and the second lot will march in, in November.
“After this training they be will enlisted to TF and wait for their deployment.”
He said they would need to attend weekend camps while waiting.
Colonel Tikoitoga applauded the good response to the recruitment drive and said it had sent a positive message to the United Nations of Fiji’s willingness to participate in peacekeeping duties.
He said with the current level of Territorial Force Numbers, Fiji would not have been able to fulfill the UN peacekeeping demands, which is why the latest recruitment was necessary.
Currently the Territorial Force Numbers are amongest those are engaged in peacekeeping duties in the Golan Heights and Sinai.

I wonder why the military recruitment drive has lots publicity. Tikoitoga said that it costs $10,000.00 to train and equiped one recruit.Is it urgent for recruitment to be made at this time ? when there is a lot of more important and urgent matters for the nation to be done leading up to the election. Bainimarama is going arround the world begging other leaders to contribute towards election cost, now the army is doing their recruitment for 900 recruit at $10,000.00 per head.Is it justifiable.We want to know how much money have been donated by other countries towards the election ? Tikoitoga sre you trying to threaten the people of Fiji by hilighting the army recruitment time and time again? I wish to clearly point out to you Tikoitoga that we have had enough and we are not going to be intimidated anymore, we want election and if there is no election the people are ready to sacrifice their lives for their future generation. People are struggling to survive on daily bases whilst you soldiers are enjoying taxpayers money. Now Mary Bainimarama,Kesaia the Commissioner of polices wife are also deeping their hand into the governments pocket for selling flowers and are paid tens of thousands of dollars. Does the Government belong to the military alone or is it for the people of Fiji ? We are all humanbeing and we need to treated fairly Because of the military the whole of Fiji is suffering.Remember everything has its limit and when the limit is reached it boils over or explodes and that is where the real power will surface not the gun but the people. Think of that and do your analysis.

Coup One

Why Fiji had coup - Part 1

On May 14, 1987, Lt. Col. Sitiveni Rabuka along with 10 soldiers gas masks hijacked and incarcerated the elected government of Timoci Bavadra. For the coup leader he was protecting an elected government from the wrath of the indigenous nationalist Taukei Movement, which organized noisy demonstrations in April 1987. Kenneth Bain, a political observer, reported that on May 14, "at 10 a.m. in Suva, the face of Fiji was damaged beyond recognition; and no plastic surgery would restore its shattered image" (1989). There were a number of players involved in the May coup, including members of the Royal Fiji Military Forces and indigenous activists of the Taukei Movement: Ratu Inoke Kubuabola, Viliame Gonelevu, Jone Veisamasama, Tomasi Raikivi, Ratu Finau Mara, Filipe Bole, Qoroniasi Bale, Ratu George Kadavulevu, Apisai Tora, and late Taniela Veitata (Sharpham 2000)—all known Alliance Party members who refused to accept the result of the April 1987 elections and, through a series of church meetings, formalized a destabilization campaign against the newly elected government. There are allegations that the President Ratu Mara gave his blessing to a military takeover after maintaining throughout the crisis that he had "no knowledge of the coup whatsoever."

To observers, the causes of the coup were many. Brij Lal (1988, 1992) sees the defeat of the Alliance Party that ruled Fiji from 1970 to 1987 as the principle cause of the coup. Victor Lal (1988) analyzed the possibility of foreign involvement and contextualized the events of May within the super power rivalry of the 1980's. Robert Robertson and Akosita Tamanisau (1988) and William Sutherland (1992) saw the rise of Fiji Labor Party (F.L.P.)-National Federation Party (N.F.P.) coalition as an expression of class aspiration whereas Michael Howard (1991) and Stephanie Lawson (1996) argued that eastern chiefs, referred to by Howard as "eastern chiefly oligarchy," did not want to relinquish its traditional political authority to a commoner indigenous Fijian. Chiefly dominance in Fiji politics was effectively used by the F.L.P.-N.F.P. coalition in 1987 to entice urban indigenous Fijian and mostly European General Electors in the lead up to the elections. Moreover, the coalition clearly emphasized class distinctions and capitalized on the developments on the industrial relations front where the Alliance Party had by 1987 alienated a large segment of the working population of all races in Fiji.

It seems that Bainimarama and Kaiyum and co. are silent on the question of constitution.the reality is that they should know that they have no legal right and no legal authority to make a constitution because they do not have the mandate of the people and their existence as a government is illegal and unlawfully as as the court of appeal in 2009 ruled before Bainimarama forced the senile President Ratu josefa Iloilo to abrogate the 1997 constitution.The abrogation of the constitution was too late as the ruling by the court that the regimes existence was illegal was done and binding. The only thing left for the regime to do is to step a side sand a caretaker government to be put in place to prepare and take the country through to election on the 1997 constitution and if there is a need for any change or amendment to the constitution then the democratic elected government will take care of through democratic process. To the honest ,innocent and loyal Fiji citizen, If we are to stop the Coup Culture we should not give any immunity to the perpetrators of the 2006 coup .They have to face the full brant of the law and it would be a deferent to would be offenders in the future. If they are pardoned we are settings a precedent and coup will never end. Precedent has been set in 2000 as those involved were delt with in a court of law so lets stick to that.

There is no need to keep on going back to 1987 and even 2000 because those event have gone and we need to concentrate on the current situation because it has taken 8 years now and still on going .we need to get our country back to normalcy we can not continue to be be held and lead against our will by this illegal regime. People need to have their say in the running of our government.Let us concentrate and find a viable solution of the uncertain political situation our country has been facing since 2006.we can't afford to be diverted every now and then. Now some is saying that Bainimarama was not involved in the 2000 coup. There are witnesses who zz can testify to that to prove that Bainimarama did involve in the 2000 coup. Investigation will prove that'd eh though he was away overseas when the coup took place he knew it before he left .

Dharam Lingam ,you are just talking sheet.Is Bainimarama frighten and trying to push the blame to the senile and deceased president ? That is cowardice to blame a dead person because the whole world witnessed the evening of 5/12/2006 when Bainimarama inform the nation on live TV that he has taken over the country and he has also stepped into the shoes of the President which means the he has taken over the executive authority from the president.Now where is the mandate of the president ?The president has no mandate as he was not elected by the people.Now this takes us the abrogation of the 1997 constitution by the president on the direction of Bainimarama and legal advice of Nazhat and Gate.That is also illegal .the president has not authority to change,amend and even abrogate the constitution.The only authority that can do that is the parliament because they have the mandate of the people as they were democratically elected by the people and the president will only act according to the recommendation of parliment ie. the democratically elected PM. Not on the direction or recommendation of the Military Commander or anybody else.
On the issue of Dictrine of Necessity. The question one should ask is weather it was necessary for the military to take over the genuine elected government.The word necessity comes from the word necessary and one should look at the situation the country was facing at the time before drawing conclusion on necessary or not ie.The law and order situation internal security, economic situation of the country and external security situation. Unfortunately the law and order or internal security situation of Fiji was perfect and well under control by police,Fijis economy was flourishing and there was no threat of our external security. Base of those factors Bainimarama can not use the doctrine of necessity as the base of his coup and there is no justification of what he did so he has to to be answerable and face the consequent of what he did according to the law so long live Dhraram Lingam so that you can face the full brant of the Law.

You and i and everybody else know that the previous government was doing a ethnic cleansing in the public sector.
Having an election alone is not democracy.A Prime Minister or a leader is not chosen to be the leader of a particular ethnic group but for all the citizens of the country.
The previous government did not even acknowledge all the itaukeis.It only looked after the interest of the elite.Soyes The Doctrine of Necessity was very necessary.
You are talking about democracy and yet when i express my views you say i am talking shit.you are contradicting yourself my friend.You need to know what true democracy is.

My friend the previous government and its PM were democratically elected by the people and that is the legal process that a government is appointed and its leader is sworn in as PM and governments leader..Once elected they have the mandate of the people to make law and run the government. Now you are diverting the issue to what a real democracy is about and you are saying that the previous government was doing human cleansing and was doing things in favour. Of I taukei instead of fairness to every body. Mind you when they did their campaign they presented their manifesto which contains what they were going to do if they were elected.so the people had spoken by voting them in as they like their manifesto.i. .Now you said that the coup was justified on the ground of doctrine of necessity but I have explained earlier the bases where doctrine of necessity could be use as a ground to justify the action taken but all those tests proved negative to justify the coup by Bainimarama and as such doctrine of necessity can not be a defence or justification of Bainimaramas coup.this is in conjunction with the court ruling in 2009 Qarase vs Bainimarama . The ruling stated that Bainimaramas coup was illegal and as such the existence of the military regime was also illegal.. I hope that you do understand what Im explaining because real democracy is a non issue here.it is the process and its legality. So my friend do not waste time because you do not know what you are talking about and the court of law is waiting for Bainimarama and his conspirator at the end of their journey just like general Musharaf of Pakistan.

Itis the Military that has tarnished its name and deface it look to the honest and law abiding citizen of Fiji and to the International community.Fiji is just a small dot and can not survive on its own.Na dokadoka kei na qaciqacia e Tiko vei Binimarama kei kemuni na lewe ni mataivalu e sega na betena .Fiji has a small economy and can not survive with it so Fiji has to relay on the international community to be able to survive ,that is whyBainimarama is trotting globally to beg for money to cater for you salary,development and daily operations and administration of the government. Unfortunately country like China give nothing for free so the debt has swollen up and triple because of Bainimaramas borrowing overseas. So Kua soti na viavia levu Vilimoni. Just keep shut when you you do not know what is actually happening. Kua ni sika vakaveitalia na Weli ni na laurai kina noda lecaika kei na drakacece.

Fijian youth flock to the RFMF because no one else is hiring. It's that simple. BaInimarama's coup crippled foreign investment, and his thug regime is busting the budget to pay military salaries whilst beggaring the rest of government.

Those who weren't hired should volunteer in the Loyal Fijian Resistance. It doesn't pay a salary, but unlike the treasonous RFMF, it will defend Fiji, not betray it.

Anonymous July 23, 2013 at 6:56pm.....does that mean that everybody in the British Army are there because no one else is hiring them? Does that mean that all Fijians overseas are there because no one else is hiring them. Get real boci and stop your condescending attitude, caiti tamamu.

They flocked to the British Army during Qarase's time so the economy must have been really farmed then and no jobs available.

Can you get your facts right ,First the 1997 constitution came to being after the review of the 1990 constitution and most importantly the process was agreed in parliament by the democratically elected members who have the mandate of the people and Reeves group were appointed to carry out wider research and consultation with members of the public and get their feed back.which they did and majority of Fijis population agree and support the 1997 constitution except Chaudry who did not support it. So my friend the illegal regime of Bainimarama can not make a constitution because they were not democratically elected and as such they do not have the mandate of the people. They should accept that and do the honest thing and that is to step aside and a caretaker civilian neutral government be put in place to take the country through to the 2014 election under the 1997 constitution. And amendment of the 1997 constitution to consider any submission by the military and the regime be immediately done by the new parliament as they have the mandate of the people than we move on from there.

anon 829am, totally agree with you. the facts are so clear its impossible to understand why the regime continues as is supported by supposedly principled people.
the only explanation I can give is that Fijians find it hard to follow principles when their personal agendas come into conflict. a society that is so unprincipled, despite outward signs of high moral aptitudes and beliefs. I think rabuka was right when he said fiji has become a nation of parasites.
sadly, unless the path u suggest is followed, I do not give much hope for us getting back on track.
its even sadder when we hear and see some young aspiring politicians, like the ones in power, cannot see the folly of their arguments and arrogantly assert that they know best on how to put the country on track. to them I say u will stuff the country up more than it is now.

Hey no shit man,the indo Fijian that died in Sinai didn't die of
any type of sickness,
i was on his
side when he fell to the ground?
He was just scared to death,that's what kills him!
He was shaking un-controllably when the first shell
flew over our heads,
the next one landed quite close to us.
The next thing i know the
indo was running to take cover,but then another shell landed very close to where he was runing too.
He truned around and scatter his way back to our security spot. I'm pretty certain that he was scared during the bombs explosion everywhere around us?

The blogger at 6:56 PM is quite right. The Fijian youth flocking to the RFMF are mostly there because that's where the jobs are.

That doesn't mean that whenever recruits flock to an army anywhere in the world, then it must be because they, too, have nowhere else to go for jobs. What a moronic assertion!

To argue from the specific to the general in this matter is just plain asinine.

Yes!i'm here because this is where
i can make some money for my family!
If i get shot tomorrow or
the next day,hopefully i don't die
but this is the only job i can do
for money?
But if someone gives me
a large amount of money,sure i probably can shoot that macafaka-
Bainimarama.
He's the assole that
screwed us bad and caused all this
bullshit?

The illegal President Rt Epeli Nailatikau is another back stabber with his karua Rt Epeli Ganilau.These are the people who back stabbed Ratu Mara in 2000 and be4ing the spreaker in the Qarase Tu Nai back stabbed Qarase again.If you can recall in 2000 the then vice president Ratu Jope took oath and was sworn in as president and he was arrested and charged, prosecuted and sent to Prison. Tu Nai will suffer the same fate he knew that the coup was wrong yet he accepted the positioin of President took oath and sworn in.

Anon 11.26pm, you are right. If illegal President Nailatikau is a back stabber, his brother Ratu Tuakitau Cokanauto s a useless bakewa and parasite who always sits on the fence and waits to see which side the coin falls before making up his mind. A consummate opportunist with no skills or talent, only his chiefly status to earns his bread and butter, but even that is wearing thin for this failure and loser.

Its hard to understand how some people are talking. There is one saying that people working in the sugar industry are useless. He went on to say that they should follow the example of illegal AG and illegal PM who have been working tirelessly for the last 7 years with no pay rise. what about the million dollars selary they are getting more than any president and prime minister in the world. This guy must be a soldier no brain
