Nawaikula tackles issue of land

Land continues to be a crucial election issue, despite claims by the regime itaukei's concerns are misplaced.

SODELPA candidate, Niko Nawaikula, discusses here the affects of the illegal government's Decrees and Constitution on the indigenous people of Fiji and their rights to their land.

Nawaikula, a qualified lawyer, has specialized in laws related to native land and indigenous issues.

We all know the stance of SODELPA on the land issue. We also know that SODELPA intends to have the courts decide whether the 1997 Constitution is still valid after the elections.

Question is, what if SODELPA fails in its court challenge? Will SODELPA work with the 2013 Constitution or seek a referendum to amend the land provisions in the Constitution?

Food for thought.

Sue said...

Niko thanks for the precis - well done and very clear. However I do not agree that the regime has removed totally this and that and so on.

If we allow ourselves to think they have removed it, and that we have nothing, then we are lost.

I exist in a world where these things are still vested in our people. I have never accepted that they went away or that the junta rendered us powerless.

The regime only has power over us if we allow them to.

I do not, never have and never will accept that.

The more of us that think like so and stand shoulder to shoulder with this consciousness will make it so - a world without Bai 'n Kai.

Wouldn't that be marvellous !

Malo Nawaikula. :)

By listening to what you saying, ISA, the faith of our Fijian race (as a Fijian) will depend on the outcome of this election. No Fijian (kawa i Taukei) can say Mr. Nawaikula is lying as all those 17 decrees has been passed by the current government and its all true what Mr. Nawaikula is saying.

The question is, whats next? Are we going to share our land with the others?

As for the name Fijian, we as a Fijian, its our birth right to have a Mataqali, Koro, TIkina, Yavusa, Yasana and a piece of land that is given to us as our birth rights. My question is, how can the others be called Fijian when they don't have those things mentioned above? Is that the next step?

To all the Fijian that is supporting Fiji First, how about if we are been told that we will be all be called Indian but as a low caste? (No offence to our Indian friends)

Please think about our next generations, we don't want them to blame us of what we do today.

Most of us are so carried away with the development the government is doing but on the other hand we are losing our indigenous rights.

KEREKERE, PLEASE, AU VAKAMAMASU think smart and vote for the only party that is fighting for the survival of our Fijian (Taukei) race - which we all know what party is that - SODELPA.

Isa, Turaga ni qai nanuma na neimami vanua lomani oqo ko Viti.

God Bless Fiji.

How low down Bainimarama and Kaiyum can be by passing the 17 decrees to take away the right of native Fijians. No consultation and dialogue being carried out ? SHAME on you Kaiyum for trying to destroy a race that looked after your grandfathers when they were looking for place to call home. SHAME on you Bainimarama for allowing this to take place during your time as Fijis Prime Minister. How can native Fijians sit and watch this happening and say nothing. I would rather go down fighting than remain standing by staying silent. Sept 17, VOTE SODELPA !

Vinaka and thank you very much Niko for shedding some light on native Fijians land and customary rights under this government. GOD BLESS you Niko and GOD will watch over the Fijian people always.

Every Citizen will have noticed the inconsistencies of this junta. They are inconsistent because they are unelected. As the the election draws near, it's apparent that FF is playing a dirty game of deception. Change is what they are banking on, but change that is imposed on the people of fIJI.
Freedom is on our hands, make your vote count and kick them out. 8 years of curfews, torture, poverty and an under performing economy is enough to drive everyone up the wall.
Bainimarama your days are numbered

To All Fijians (kawa itaukei)

Regarding the free education, Fijian Affairs Scholarship has been taken away and that money has been diverted to free education but one thing we should remember that we still can afford to pay for the fees for Primary and Secondary school but when it comes to university level where we really need assistance, well, its no longer there. University level education fees is 70 or 80% more than secondary and primary level.

The point is, don't get carried away of whats going on (for example - free education, free bus fare, development but think smart of the long term effect of whats going on and what will happen like, our loan a pilling up)

In regards to development, as being told many times any government can do development but think about the repercussions of the development thats been done at the moment.

1. All development is done from the money our current government (Fiji First) loan from other countries.
2. Whats the conditions of the loan?
3. Whats the total sum of the money that has borrowed from other countries?
4. Who will pay for it? (looks like us and our sons and grandsons and it will goes on)

Think smart is vote for SODELPA.

Land has been the major driver of this coup. The only way the dictator and his sidekick the Rear Admirer can get filthy rich is through selling iTaukei land to the Chinese. It never ceases to amaze me that this gang still has support from indigenous people. It is time to wake up and face the grim realities.

Anonymous said...

If we the i Taukei are so concerned about Land being stolen by other races then why the fuck are we still sitting around drinking grog, occupying the squatter settlements, stealing and listening to political BS from politicians such as this dude, We should get out there and utilize our land ourselves. Whats so hard about that.

Anonymous said...

Specialist, my ass. This "lawyer" is just another racist SDL hack peddling the usual BS scare. It's simply amazing that having ownership of 92 per cent of the land isn't enough. SODELPA is greedy, as well as being stupid. Keep them out and if it doesn't work at the polls, bring out the guns again. We need protecting. These people are dangerous.

@ 7.28am - Mr. Nawaikula is not a dangerous person (SODELPA) but the very person you are supporting have murdered people. I think you are a smart person to draw the line of which one is which.

- UN peacekeepers held -

Rival jihadists of Al-Nusra Front, backed by other rebels, detained 43 Fijian peacekeepers on the Golan on Thursday, a day after their capture of the sole crossing over the UN-patrolled armistice line to the Israeli-occupied sector of the plateau.

"Forty-three peacekeepers from the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force were detained early this morning by an armed group in the vicinity of Quneitra," a UN statement said.

The 43 peacekeepers from Fiji were forced to surrender their weapons and taken hostage, but 81 Filipino blue helmets "held their ground" and refused to disarm, the Filipino defence department said.

It said the Filipino peacekeepers were being surrounded by the gunmen.

The UN Security Council condemned the action and demanded the "unconditional and immediate release" of the peacekeepers, a statement said.

If that is true,then the Fijian soldiers are obeying and following the rules of engagement under the UN Mission Charter-Rules of Engagement.Its Normal because they a neutral observers,they could only shoot if shot upon,that is in self defence.in this scenario,they werent shot at.

Shane said...

One FACT GUARANTEED, anyone who tries to work against or fight the locals in any country will go down losing the war and crying before it ends. Ask the Americans how they tried it in Vietnam and Iraq and see what happens. They came back in body bags. You have to work with the locals to win a war on their own turf. Fijians in no difference.


That's true for the indigenous Fijians in their own country. No choice but work with the indigenous or you have to ship out. And may regret everything else later. Fiji is a nice place to live in and the locals are nice until you provoke their land.

These decrees are dirty from the beginning because of lack of consultations and ideas except two man army who will pay the price sometime in their lifetime.

Some of the stuff that has been said here about Muslims can be used against our people.

Anything may happens to them as its their job of choice not forced. If such thing to happens, it would change peoples view and perception about FMF role in this country as creator of coup culture and downgrading of the indigenous rights.

FMF personal are there on their own choice at a time they know its dangerous when everyone else was against their role in our country.

What may happens could be the catalyst to turn people eyes around and fight Bainimarama for recruiting and using FMF for his Muslims partners agenda. Syria is best left for themselves to sort out instead of FMF bulashit who goes there for money.

Not saying that our wish is to get them shot but who knows what God has in place for Christianity around the world. Islamic has no place in this world that's for sure. They Koran promotes 'and eye for an eye' whereas Christianity promote followers 'to submit you other cheek when slap on the the other'. Now that where the Syrians are different and that's the difference between believers and not.

Get rid of the Muslims agenda especially Khaiyum and the team in Fiji full-stop. 135 isn't justice after all, its injustice against the indigenous rights as they are trying to do.

The timing of the Golan incident doesn't favor Baninimarama now does it. Bainimarama's dream team think they have it all until the 11th hour before the election. At the time when he needs support for his own agenda (or before we forget Khaiyums Muslims agenda).

Good timing so we say because Bai will be awaken with sore head with this sad morning news and start kneeling with prayers that nothing happens to them as it will degrade his election campaign.

He will start asking himself whether Allah has brainwashed him for sending them to Syria to fight the locals after all the mass still hangs around their neck for what they did back at home and going over to bring the regime nothing but money.

Leave the boys out of this platform. They're doing a job none of you bitch ass niggas have the balls to do. They are serving a peacekeeping mission, not a combat mission.

Hey niggar, it's not neccessary true that you remove the head and you've killed the beast. Venom's are still dangerous even long after its head is dismembered.

Its the whole organisation that revival. Understanding their role message is hard to get through their thick head.

A chef died recently doing exactly that by removing the head but still dies from the bite 20 minutes later after being bitten by the dead python head. Similarly its the whole organisation that's being poisoned and dangerous with fake concept. The boys are part and puzzle of that poisoned organisation and if they're injured they are injured making a bad choice to be part of a poisonous / terrorist group lead by these two thugs. A group that decide to hurt its own people for no genuine reason. A group that happen to get trapped into their own trap of corruption bluff.

But at least you got the drift.

Regarding the FMF get out of it and do not touch it if you understand that its its vision is wrong. Devils including Allah are everywhere to do damage to our country and its indigenous people fullstop.

While Fiji's U.N. Peace Keeping Forces have been taken hostage in Syria, bravely defending Democracy and protecting the innocent, the man who sent them, remains aloof, oppressing his people a cowering from scrutiny, while denying his own people Democracy and peace. It seems a little ironic and stupid really.
We did warn these soldiers that they were in harms way and only being used to make Frank Bainimarama and aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum look good, to satisfy their egos and pockets.
Fiji's sons once again have been used to line the pockets of a few! It's time the RFMF removed him and his Regime from the horizon of Fiji Politics and now is an ideal time to stop this madness, while Frank is offshore.

The things posted on this site by the Clarendon trolls are some of the most racist and divisive comments you can imagine.

The military are just that. They are well trained soldiers who are doing their best. Their leaders are another matter entirely.

There should be no negative comments about the foot soldiers of the RFMF. That is completely wrong and unnecessary.

If the RFMY foot soldiers turned their weapons on their fellow countrymen that would be something different. That has not happened and is unlikely to happen.

Many in the military hate this regime. They know they have been used. But to say horrible things about Fijians serving the UN is just a Clarendon House thing to do. Their job is to stir trouble and disquiet. They are doing a pretty good job. But you can fool some of the people some of the time but you can't fool all of the people all of the time.

These Clarendon trolls will be unemployed in a few weeks time any way.

SODELPA will have a tough battle in Lau. Ratu Ganilau now supporting SODELPA.

The chairman of the Bose Ni Vanua Ko Lau, Ilisoni Taoba, has dissociated himself from a meeting between Ro Teimumu Kepa and a Laun delegation at Ono-i-lau House, Nadera on Wednesday.
He said he knew nothing about it.
“I’m the chairman of the Bose Ni Vanua Ko Lau and I was appointed by the late Tui Nayau, Ratu Sir Kamisese Mara. I must admit I know nothing or even being informed of the meeting at Ono-i-lau House.”
Ro Teimumu, SODELPA leader and paramount chief of Rewa, accepted a traditional request supposedly from representatives of the Bose ni Vanua ko Lau, to represent Lau in the September 17 general election. The reps made the presentation because they said their candidate, Anare Jale, did not qualify for failing the residential qualification test. Mr Jale, one of the organisers of the meeting, said last night he would respond later.
Mr Taoba said the Bose Ni Vanua ko Lau had totally distanced itself from all that happened at Ono-i-lau House on Wednesday.
As a member of the chiefly Vuanirewa clan, he said he was not even informed of the meeting.
He said the people of Lau had already decided the candidate they would vote for and what type of government they wanted to lead the nation.
The vanua, he said, should not be involved in politics.
“We only have one constituency and all parliamentarians will look after all the provinces and Fiji,” he said.
The Lau and Rewa connection, he said, would still be there but should not be used for politics.

When there are too many chiefs and not enough Indians, I guess only way to control the I-Taukei administration is to regulate it.

I think I-Taukei land is more secure now then it ever was by the fact that over 90% belong to them and they make up over 60% of the population.

Chiefs have role to play in native administration and that is to lobby for indigenous rights and welfare.

They should not be involved in hard core politics like supporting coups and toppling governments or racism.

INDIGENOUS FIJIAN SHOULD NOT VOTE FOR FijiFirst. IT SEEMS A FULL ISLAMIC SUPPORTED GROUP. See the video of his Greenacre mosque visit Australia compared to his Canterbury tour, Sydney.

It will be the end of your ancestors long journey if you do. You will be laughed at by all your opposition if you do. Even your brother in arms in NZ/AU/UK/US cant help you if make the wrong choice.

The current regime came in by force and should never be entertained with their hidden dangerous policy. The people must decide their destiny and not the two. God Bless all parties except Bainimarama's forced party.

Lets pray for the quick release of the soldiers unharmed.

"Also I have not seen one decent muslim attack any other religion here."

True, but you HAVE seen many indecent Muslims attack other religions here, haven't you?

Although, to be fair, we don't know if they were really Muslim or just pretending to be Muslim. They could have been SODELPA provocateurs or pro-regime trolls from Clarendon House trying to stir up trouble.

In the same vein, you could say that no "decent" Christians attack other religions. But plenty of indecent ones do.

Correct. The soldiers have instilled fear and wiped off smile and jovial from our face. It will take time to bring it back after 7 years sidelined and cornered. Conning becomes the rule of the nation since 2006. Anything done under a gun instills fear on nation. At the end we will be like the Russians and Africans who force themselves to smile because their livehood were stolen by their leaders.

This is noticed buy tourist lately.

All party must have a theme "BRING BACK THE SMILE BY VOTING OUT FijiFirst".

Our smile is en-rooted in us based on real values of the indigenous. Take that away and we won't have Fiji. But another Muslim war zone where suicide bombers roam around for religious BS.

I am Fiji citizen born in Ba. I am proud to be a Fiji citizen and will die for my country. So who gives a damn in what I am called and for that matter I don't give a damn what some like to call themselves. No big deal if I am called a Fijian or a Fiji Islander. It is high time for us to put our country above our race and religion. When a Fiji citizen becomes internationally famous and successful he or she will carry our flag and not a race card. Cut the crap and let us move towards building Fiji where everyone is treated equally and yes never to lose the traditional right of the original people of the land - I agree!! Fiji is for all Fiji Islanders so let us not get too carried away by a name.....What is so good about this when 90% of prisoners are of one particular race...why cant we work towards improving or changing it. Shouldn't we have more "Fijians" as doctors, lawyers, Accountants and other professionals??? should we focus on bringing equality by changing the habits and bringing strong work ethics, devotion and integrity?? A progressive Fiji is one where we start giving a damn about education, Health services and employment, freedom of speech and a genuine democracy. Unfortunately in some ways all parties fails in these areas. I rest my case!!!!

Commander confirms captured soldiers 'safe'

Friday, August 29, 2014

Update: 10:20AM THE Republic of Fiji Military Forces has confirmed that the 43 Fijian soldiers captured in the Golan Heights by a militant rebel group are safe.

In a press conference this morning, RFMF Commander Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga said the soldiers were captured yesterday..............

Brig-Gen Tikoitoga said no soldiers have been injured.

The Commander has called on all Fijians to pray for the safe release of the soldiers.

CORRECTION. These are Fiji Soldiers NOT serving on behalf of all Fiji people. Sorry Bhaiya...Ask Bhaiyum and Khaiyum why they sent them over when everyone was pulling out knowing taking UN personnel as prisoners and even killing some of them were happening well before they went. The exact reason why Japan and others pulled out before Bai decided to send the Fijian pussies.

you all must be joking right? we are talking about the lives of 43 Fijians, put aside the fact that they are soldiers. the lives of 43 of our countrymen are at stake here and all you turds are doing is using the situation as a platform to voice your anger at a situation they too have to live with (the fact our "prime minister is also a turd).SHAME ON YOU! i am half wishing that some of you could swap places with them, but that wouldn't get us anywhere would it? we'd still be stuck with the fact that there are 43 Fijians who could possibly be killed, 43 grieving families. Most of them are there not because they want to be there but out of the fact that they have taken the opportunity to earn a living and support their families. Shame on all of you for calling them cowards. Redirect your anger and disappointment to where it's better suited. Pray for our countrymen whether it be to Allah, God, Aliens whoever, they need all the help they can get.

Points taken. But do you know that God Jehovah and Allah are two different things for sure.

One believes in 4 wives to a husband and the other only 1. One is living one and the other a stone. Go figure out the rest yourself because this is like asking Khaiyum how his life was before he got married and an a.s licker at the same time or whether he could shove up his Sunset thesis up his behind.

Lets just hope for the best outcome and this becomes a lesson to the torturers at Nabua because our God knows what's happening in Fiji better.

The detainment of 43 Fijian soldiers in Golan should be a warning to Tikoitoga and the military. He and they should concentrate on the lives of his troops instead of poking their noses into Fiji's politics and the 1997 Constitution which is still legal.

According to the many innocent Fijians who are God-fearing and have been earnestly praying for true freedom, the involvement of the RFMF in trying to change the political mindset of the people as to how they should be governed, and executing coup d'etats, has not improved or positively developed their wellbeing in these past 27 years since 1987. In fact the morale of this beloved nation has been weakened by illegal changes of government at the whim of those in leadership of armed soldiers.

God has spoken. And that is, that the military should not even try to change the decision of the citizens and people who pay them.

Bainiwoman should know better and stop lying about his agenda. Those who suffered in his hands should not be included in his mouth service. Don't include those who were tortured, injured and killed including the families of the CRW who are still waiting for their mystery answers. Don't include the thousands who those lost their jobs and those who were put behind bars by the military. Don't include the thousands who fled overseas for no reason other then his military coup. In other words stop lying Bainimarama and just say you've made a horrible mistake by sending them to the Golan Height at the first place. Idiot.

Guaranteed its not going to be a one day election as Bai promise the crowd in Australia. His lip service is different from events on the ground because his left hand doesn't know what his right is capable of doing. Like his brain is not connected to his mouth.

Like Tikoitoga Bai's lack of expertise when push comes to shove only shows up when he opens his foul mouth.

Its not like you are isolated in your cage because you could very well do more damage then good like you think you are dealing with the locals in Fiji who has no weapon. If something happens to them then prepare to blame your foolishness and your co-foolish partner Tikoitoga who rants he wont pull out regardless.

Dear sir ,

The detainment or capture of any soldier is always a tricky and nervous time for the families, friends , colleagues , fellow soldiers and the nation as a whole .

My prayers and thoughts remain for the 44 Fijian soldiers that have been captured and hope for their release .
I'd like to bring to your attention a recent and widespread attack, the most insulting , spiteful , senseless social media attack on the peaceful Muslims of Fiji on the website " coup4.5 " . The sheer hate is unacceptable , the sheer inciting of violence against Muslims and Indians alike is pure " barbarism " . The tricky part is this : there have been numerous references on c4.5 of the slaughtering of Muslims including extremely hateful and disturbing comments about Prophet Mohammed , the holy Quran , and Allah .

These comments amount to incitement , racial profiling , advocating violence and hostility towards an ethnic group or religious denomination . Let's hope this comments don't fall before the eyes of those who hold the Fijian soldiers captive . God forbid , and I sincerely hope that the soldiers are set free and any other Fijian soldiers don't become a target for terrorist groups as these comments can certainly offend the most moderate of Muslims let alone extremists and unfairly target innocent Fijian soldiers , in reprisal for comments against Islam by the idiotic bloggers of the site . Please note that I am completely against terrorism and attacks on innocent people , however my point is that terrorists don't negotiate , nor are they forgiving , and the very last thing we want is for extremists to wage war based on the insults of a brainless few .

After reading the comments on coup4.5 , a colleague of mine in Australia ( a non muslim , Caucasian ) was shocked and expressed disbelief that people of Fiji were capable of such hate and remarked " who are these people "? I answered " cowards ". I couldn't find an alternative name for them .

In summary , I also hope that like any other Hate advocating site , coup4.5 dies a natural death .

God bless Fiji .

This prayer is promulgated by our government of the day as part of its ongoing effort to alert voters to the fact that some people believe it is possible that God exists and to the further possibility that he, she, it, or they might be desirous of communication from you. This should not be construed as implying that God is of any particular race, sex or creed.

The following prayer should be memorised. Do not write it on the palm of your hand or carry it with you into a voting booth as this act would carry with it serious penalties:

To Whom It May Concern,

Oh great, but not necessarily superior, being, who dwells beyond this plane of existence, and who is accessible only through prayer, meditation or crystals, we salute or affirm you without thereby acknowledging that you are entitled to greater respect than that accorded any other alleged deity or deities.

We the Fijians of Fiji—and by this we really mean Indians, Rotumans, Chinese, Kailoma, and even iTaukei—humbly beseech you to use whatever power or powers you may have to release or cause to release our soldiers in Syria

We hope to pass through your plane of existence at some point on our psychic journey to the same exalted status as marine mammals or even snail darters. Moreover, to the extent your design for the universe is also consonant with the 2013 Constitution and all applicable decrees, and includes free bus fare and gumboots, we ask you to provide us our minimum daily allowance of essential vitamins and minerals, and when judging us be duly mindful of our status as victim, which provides full justification for what might appear on superficial examination to be felonious. In the same vein, we will endeavor to excuse or forgive those who have transgressed against us, with the possible exception of our parents, teachers, clergy and chiefs, about whom we have just resurrected disturbing memories. We ask all of this in the name of your prophet, to be named at a later date.

The government disclaims any and all warranties of fitness for any particular purpose and will not be responsible for personal injury or death that might result from reliance on this prayer.

Very proud of the Philippinos for holding their ground - not that I expected any less! :-)

And which probably explains why their govt is now reportedly pulling them out of UNDOF. The switched-on peacekeepîng warriors will retreat but will never surrender because they know what the score is with ISIS.

There is good reason why they've been armed and this is it.

Even civilians would only consider disarming if their loved ones are held at gunpoint but in war zones you should ever surrender your god-given arms when confronted with terrorists who even behead their own while they laugh, scream and shout about it like possessed devils!

Like the courageous Phillipinos, I know I would choose to go down with my guns blazing from my hips, than surrender to these &#(*$;>!%&! cowards. Seriously.

now for all to see that Fiji Army are turning out to be the most coward and wimpy lot in the Golan height peacekeeping crowd. i remember them strutting around Suva in their high shot military gear and camouflage led by no other than Cassava sprinter. Oilei, this gona is when we expect them to stand their ground but look what happens. We are so ashamed to be Fijians right now. The way they took my uncle from home in the middle of the night only to bash this unarmed harmless innocent citize to death over some village squabble over land. Fiji Military is the biggest cici tadola army in the whole world. Go Philipine Army!

Let me school you about extremism -
1. Hitter was a catholic , killed over 5 million Jews ... Often citing the bible n interpreting it his own ways ... Sure as fuck doesn't mean all Catholics are bad ... Same with the hundreds of priests around the world that have sex with under age boys .. Doesn't make the religion bad .dont kill the messenger bitch .. It's a bit like that .... Get it ? No ....? Read on ...

2. Stalin was Greek Orthodox schooled .... Killed as much as 3 to 60 million people ... Please have a read ...his parents wanted him to be a priest .. N look what he did ... Doesn't mean all of his people are murderers ?

If that were the case then I should say that between Catholics n the orthodox are all murderers as 2 guys have killed millions ..., you see the point ? Yup I thought so ... You can thank me later ... And if I agreed with you ... That will make the 2 of us wrong .....

May Allah bless you

This spells the end for Fijian PKOs. Who's going to want to entrust their personal or institutional security to a military force that surrenders to terrorists without a fight? Kiss all of those foreign exchange earnings goodbye.

The US sanctions have really worked, but what's worse -- Frank's poison or the US antidote? Our army is now a shambles. Our officers are traitors and bootlickers. Our forces are bloated and top-heavy. Our commanders are cowards and their toadies. Our equipment is second-rate, as is our training. We've pushed away all of our real friends and allies.

The RFMF can hold its own against defenceless prisoners and an unarmed populace, but in a real fight forget it. No more big talk of buturaki now that the barrels are facing the other way.

This is a black eye for all of Fiji, not just the RFMF, and it will take generations to live it down. Frank really screwed the pooch on this one.

Bainimarama who is the IPM (Illegal Prime Minister) and former commander of our soldiers, and Tikoitoga who is the current commander, are having a hard time now in trying to find out ways to get the Fijian prisoners of war released from the obstinate clutches of ISIS. We know that these terrorists have beheaded many, including an American journalist, and that our Fijian soldiers will be held hostages to give them bargaining power for their demands. Human lives which are invaluable to us are of no value to these very hard-bargaining captors.

True that we need to pray more mightily to our God now than we had ever prayed before "for their release" as Bainimarama has urged us, but we must realize that God has his own plans for us. Perhaps we should just be humble enough to say in our prayer, "If it be Thy will, please release our soldiers, but Thy will be paramount because we cannot see into Thy divine reasons."

It takes much courage and resolve to accept God's will for us be they contrary to our own individual and personal wishes; indeed much more courage and resolve than any decisions or struggles we make on our own.

UN tries to locate Fijian peacekeepers seized on Golan Heights
By LUKE BAKER, ReutersAugust 29, 2014 10:19pm


Where's Bainimarama and Khaiyum in all of these. Are they still partying from last 7 years or have they stopped.

If hell breaks loose blame FBC, Fiji Sun, Tikoitoga, Bainimarama and the one only brainbox Khaiyum.

Israel is deploying its plane near the border where they were captured and it might go ahead and strike these group. Lets hope it wont because they have their own agenda and doesn't care. If this happens then the Al-Qaeda link terrorist group may go for the kill rather being captured or killed.

Now can we get Aiyaz and Bai with
his torturer group who know best how to torture people in Fiji to mobilise their arses and plan something. Otherwise they better go and kill themselves and save the 43. How many of you anyway. You useless thugs.

As we have been saying all Bai's troops have never seen a real war and what they were doing was disrepectful for our forefathers who have fight a real war before them. These pussies can only surrender when faced with real war tactics.

Why do you have to surrender anyway when the Filipino didn't. Are you showing the other side of your front and chicken like Bai did when fronted with reality. Now the reality is Lamu tale o Van Damne.

Just Situational Logic said...

In time, perhaps we will divine God's will in all of this. But for now, it seems pretty evident that Anon @ 5:11 is basically right. This episode pretty conclusively proves that the RFMF is no longer capable of assisting the UN or others in mounting PKOs.

It will be interesting to see how this development affects Washington's political calculus regarding Fiji. For years Canberra has pushed Washington to end RFMF participation in PKO's. Washington has pushed back, saying that it supports the UN's rejection of political litmus tests for donor nations, and challenging Canberra to replace Fijian soldiers with boots on the ground of its own, if it insists.

Canberra has already signaled its willingness to turn a blind eye to the regime's manipulation of the election process, presumably in the expectation of restoring full relations and business-as-usual with Suva. Washington followed Canberra down the blind alley that led to Fiji's suspension from the PIF, but then began to act more independently in pursuit of its own interests in the Pacific. In more recent years, however, and especially in the run-up to the elections, Washington and its embassy have been remarkably quiet and uncritical of the regime.

It's hard not to imagine Washington whetting its lips in hungry anticipation of restoring mil-mil relations with Fiji via "democratic" elections. But the US enthusiasm for Fijian peacekeeping troops is no doubt dampened by the RFMF debacle in the Golan Heights. The RFMF is clearly in desperate need of US re-equipping and re-training, but that could take quite some time. Until it happens, today's RFMF is too shabby to be of much value to Uncle Sam.

How that affects Washington's attitude toward the regime as it moves to steal Fiji's elections will be quite interesting. My guess is that Suva will need to show Washington more leg in order to keep the Americans interested. In the meanwhile, it will be the Tongans that Washington invites to the dance.

No Coup is good. Get that fact right in your head, fool. Coup are individually motivated. No party passes an agenda on them unless if you have any evidence.

The only time it seems like being a party backed when the coup individual's agenda seems to line up with a party agenda. They were indidually driven. Rabuka and Speight and a few did that and ask for support. The party was only caught in their cobwebs. Likewise Bai and Khaiyum plans this one and ask for your ass and backside support by building bridges. Whether the Muslims seems to be behind it is very in question. But 135 doesnt seems random at all. A good brain always start from number one.

Why on earth did the Fiji Army surrender their weapons?? A real professional soldier don't retreat or surrender their weapons if it will cost them their life.True soldiers will always fight to the end even if it will cost them their lives.

The Geneva Convention says that in situations like that in Syria, we can fire our weapons if we STRONGLY BELIEVE that their is a danger to human life. This is danger as hundreds of Syrian Soldiers and an American journalist have been beheaded or shot at close range and buried in mass grave.

I would rather go on Peacekeeping Operation or Combat Operation with the Filipino Army than my fellow country men who gives in and surrender easily to a 10 men Al Qaeda rebel group. Maybe they are used to bully usunarmed Fijianscivilians back home
and are lost (yali na yalona) when confronted with armed rebels??

"Warrior peacekeepers -
The Philippines military said the rebels had encircled its camp with the Fijians in tow, and demanded the Filipino peacekeepers surrender their weapons, which they refused to do.

The UN says it deplores the capture of 43 Fijian peacekeepers in the Syrian Golan Heights by an armed group, calling for their "immediate release".

Fiji's interim leader Frank Bainimarama says talks are under way to negotiate the release of the hostages.

The UN peacekeepers were detained near Quneitra, during heavy fighting between Syrian rebels and government forces.

Meanwhile, the Philippines says 75 of its peacekeepers remain in a tense standoff with rebels in the same area.

The UN Disengagement Observer Force (Undof) base is surrounded by militants but the Philippine peacekeepers have refused to surrender, army spokesman Gen Domingo Tutaan Junior confirmed on Friday."

As soldiers, the last thing we do is surrender our weapons to the enemy. If they want it, they have to take it from our dead hands. The only thing we need to give them is the 30 brass calling cards in our mags. Shameful day for the much vaunted Fijian Military. FB boasts about our PKO record and how the UN cannot do without Fijian soldiers in hot-spot areas around the world. His words may have just come back to haunt him. These soldiers have proved him wrong. The UN will probably invite another Filipino contingent to replace ours. I doubt if we will ever be invited to participate in any such ops again. The Commander wants to preempt this scenario by saying that we will continue to answer the call. How can we answer if the call does not come...ever again..? Throughout Fiji's proud military history, we have only managed to win one VC in WW2 through Cpl Sukanaivalu. All these brave men are probably turning in their graves right now with the timid surrender of their compatriots in the Golan...and not even a shot fired...what a shame. How can these 44 soldiers hold their heads up in public when/if they return? What goes around, comes around. Now you know what it's like to face the business end of the gun barrel...and you guys failed miserably.

It's unfortunate and perplexing at the same time, Fijian Soldiers being taken prisoners by a band of murderers who pretend to be fighting a "Holy" war in Allah's name.
Even Islamic Leaders from around the World, including Indonesia's President, are saying that Islamic State don't represent Islamic values and interests.
We don't know the circumstances in which these Soldiers surrendered their arms, but I'm guessing it was either a defining choice between surrendering and living or face certain and instant death and to me, while there's a chance and a hope of surviving, that's a chance that should be taken as opposed to death. Now it takes a brave Soldier to make such an unpalatable decision as that!
So let's not ridicule them for making an unpalatable and difficult decision as one that would go against all their instincts.
The target is the people who have implemented this coup, the Soldiers, generally speaking, are the victims.
Let's take a moment to consider the possibility that these Soldiers might all be slaughtered by these murderers and the fear and trepidation their loved ones must be going through at this point in time.
It's Frank Bainimarama, Aiyaz Sayed Khaiyum and the present illegally appointed Commander of the RFMF who are to blame, not the Soldiers taken prisoners in the Middle East.
The current Commander can end this coup today, by arresting Frank and Co. the imprisoned soldiers could be slaughtered and while some might find that gratifying, it won't resolve Fiji's problems and there are others who bow their heads in prayer, praying for the safe return of these men and for their families, for God to intervene and help restore Law and Order in Fiji and to forgive those who have trampled Democracy in their own country for the sake of a few dollars and power. And then there remain the detractors who are gleeful at all the chaos.

Which one are you?

I agree with MM.

The soldiers are doing their job. It is disturbing for all right-minded people across the world.

As peace keepers they can discharge their weapons in self defence but they cannot fire unless fired upon. A coalition of various military forces can open fire without provocation.

Peace keepers have to follow the UN rules. If the UN are seen to be firing first then UN personnel worldwide would become targets.

We don't know the full story. All we can do is pray for their safety. Before anyone attacks these soldiers (on this site) just remember they are there as a UN force to promote peace, democracy and freedom.

Therein lies the irony. Attack Frank and Aiyaz who have displaced those principals domestically while the brave soldiers fight for those same principals for the world.

Let your vote decide their fate. Vote for freedom, democracy and the rule of law. Don't vote for tyranny and the suppression of fundamental freedoms.

The irony deepens when you consider that Fiji has sent troops to the UN corps yet it completely ignores the charters of the same organisation.

Support our soldiers. In so doing you do not have to support our tyrannical leaders.

I sincerely hope that the RFMF soldiers do not blindly follow orders after September 17.

I hope that they remember their calling to protect Fiji and her people from threats abroad and domestically. If that means disobeying orders in the current domestic situation (post September 17) then so be it.

They are not all guilty under martial law. The leaders must take responsibility for their actions. Blame the cowards like Frank sitting at home safely counting his money, while the rank and file of the RFMF put their lives on the line. Something Frank would never know about.

Mr. Manning, I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees. This sir, is not an empty or vain boast for I have served. A soldier accepts his fate whatever it may be. When we signed up, we were made aware of the inherent risks involved. War/armed conflict is not for the timid. There are ROE's, RUF's/LOAC that govern our behaviour in-theater. We are authorized to use force up to and including lethal force in defence of life and property. We do not expect civilians to understand this mindset. Bottom line sir, is that a soldier NEVER surrenders his weapon without a fight. This is a court martial offense and punishable by death in time of war/armed conflict. Kudos to the Filipino's for standing their ground.

U'd be surprised that most civilians understand perfectly where you're coming from @12.11pm. So well put.

You've missed out a glaring fact though and that is: 'where does the buck stop?'.

Yes, the 'fish stinks from the head'... and that's the basis for the concern by angry bloggers about the Fijian hostage situation.

The RFMF had busted its budget for about 5 consecutive years before they took over the treasury themselves in 2006.

So why were the Fijian soldiers so poorly trained as clearly reflected in the decision that they took?

MM, please take note of the above... and now reflect on the Phillipino soldiers who are also faced with the same "Damned if I do and Damned if I don't" type of situation but have demonstrated the kind of resolve that the world expects of them. You are not born a man, you grow into one... and a dignified, courageous one at that.

Ratu Solomoni,
Your language betrays your mentality. The IQ of a 4yr old is higher than yours after your mindless rant. It's obvious you have never donned the uniform else you would know that in ANY army, you're FIRST and foremost a soldier. Other duties such as cook, driver, clerk etc comes second. They would be considered hero's had they fought the enemy prior to being captured. They didn't, they surrendered without a shot being fired (that's cowardice in the face of the enemy) and to make matters worse, the rebels used a Fijian soldier to try and persuade the Filipino's to surrender.
Try to debate without letting your emotions get the better of you. Foul language coming from a so-called Ratu demeans your status as a chief. You are not fit for leadership in the community. You should be ashamed of yourself. I rest my case.
