Intel: Fiji soldiers partying the night before capture

Phillipines Defense Forum: Details of the Fiji surrender 
Fiji's captured soldiers were celebrating the birthday of a senior officer the night before they were captured by Syrian rebels linked to Al Qaeda.

Intel sources say the 45 troops had kava and were doing the taralala so were probably incapable of decisive action the next morning when 150 rebels descended on them.

It's also emerged the Fiji peacekeepers wanted to fight but were ordered by a senior official from Suva's Queen Elizabeth Barracks to surrender.

Our story the troops had radioed Israel for help to move to a safe zone has meanwhile been verified on a leading Facebook site which has detailed a lot of information about the Fiji surrender. 

Filipino soldiers hailed as heroes - not so the Fijians.
Discussions on the Phillipines Defense Forces Forum have confirmed Fiji's call for help to Israel was denied and they were told to hold instead because we no longer have status thanks to the regime signing a diplomatic agreement with Tehran.

C4.5 has been told the troops then called someone senior at QEB, who told them to lay down their weapons and surrender because they would be escorted to a safe zone.

The men were instead taken to a unknown location and no one has had direct contact with them since, although Al Nusra has released a picture of them and their ID cards.  

The question that needs to be answered is "Who was responsible for telling the men to surrender?"

Sources say it could only have been someone senior, like the landforce or commander.

This man ordered them to surrender.
http://www.undof.unmissions.org/Default.aspx?tabid=9230&ctl=Details&mid=12279&ItemID=10442&language=en-US

They followed orders and we should be proud of them for that. The Filipinos should be ashamed of themselves for defying the orders of their commanding officer.

This is why Fijian troops are valued. They culture of follow-the-Ratu that has been ingrained by thousands of years of tribal living.

While the Filipinos put their own personal safety over the orders of their superiors.

Why is C4.5 using an anonymous comment on a Filipino forum to base its news report that the order came from Fiji?

That's a big slap on Franks face and the Fiji military when Israel refused to help them due to Fiji's link with Iran and Russia...
Even though i am against the soldiers for surrendering their weapons,I commend them for their act of bravery and willing to suffer for the sake of maintaining peace in the region...
Even though It is too hard to comprehend their decision to lay down their weapons,we hope and pray that through our miracle working God,He will change the hearts of these terrorists and sympathise with our military men.
It may be "A GREAT ESCAPE" by disobeying an order for the phillipinos it is an "ACT OF COURAGE AND BRAVERY "by obeying an order on our military men!!

I add to my previous comment--45 men were facing about 150 in Syria. Sgt Talaiasi Labalaba, Tpr Sekonaia Takavesi & 7 other brave men from the SAS fought off 200-400 Adoo in the Battle of Mirbat. Just Google Labalaba if you do not not know the story. I know the Fijian soldier is one of the finest in the world but the Fijian Officer corps needs to re-examine itself, return to the right path to regain the trust of the men. You serve to lead, not lead to be served. God Bless

TO ALL MUSLIM IN FIJI, MY FEAR IS THAT IF ANYTHING GOES WRONG TO THE 45 FIJIAN BROTHERS AT ARM IN SYRIA, NO ONE CAN GIVE YOU THE PROTECTION YOU NEED HERE IN FIJI. I HAVE MUSLIM FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS BUT I AM SCARED MAY CANNOT DO ANYTHING IF THE ANGRY FIJIAN MOBS RETALIATES AND COME FOR THEM AT MY HOME.

TO ALL MUSLIM BLOGGERS WHO ARE ANTI FIJIAN CHIEFS, ANTI CHRISTIAN INCLUDING THOSE SWEARING LIKE HELL IN THIS BLOG, REMEMBER THAT YOU ONLY POURING FUEL IN THE DYING FIRE WHICH ONE DAY IT WILL EXPLODE WILDLY BECAUSE OF YOUR SILLY ACTIONS THAT BROUGHT ANIMOSITY, SERIOUS DIVISIONS AND FULL OF HATRED AMONGST CHRISTIAN AND MUSLIM GOOD RELATIONSHIP IN FIJI. AIYAZ KAIYUM IS THE SINGLE SUBJECT THAT CAUSING ALL THESE DIVISIONS AND HATRED BUT LET HIM DEFEND HIMSELF.

YOU MAY HAVE BAINIMARAMA UNDER YOUR CONTROL BUT NOT THE WHOLE FIJIAN RACE AND THAT IS A DAMN BIGGEST MISTAKE IF YOU STILL DO.

THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS OF YOUR ORIGINALLITY THAT YOU ARE NATIVE OF PAKISTAN OR INDIA OR MIDDLE EAST WITH ISLAMIC MUSLIM FAITH. A FAITH THAT CAUSING WARS AND KILLING INNOCENT ELDERLIES, WOMEN, CHILDREN, BABIES AND MEN WITHIN THEIR OWN FAITHS INCLUDING CHRISTIANS, HINDUS AND ATHEISTS ETC.

THE 45 FIJIAN SOLDIER DETAINEES IN SYRIA ARE ON A LONG HAUL BEFORE BEING RELEASED . TIME WILL COME WHEN AL NUSRA WILL BECOME FED UP OF THE WHOLE SITUATION AND MAY CHANGE PLANS TO MEET WHAT THEY CAN AFFORD IN FINANCING THE SECURITY 24/7 AND FOOD RATIONS OF OUR 45 WONDERFUL PEACEKEEPERS AND BEHEADED THEM AS THEIR LAST BEST OPTION TO SAVE THEIR BUDGETS AND HEADACHES. RIGHT NOW THEY MAYBE RUNNING LOW 0N ALL FINANCE, ARMS AND BULLETTS, AMOURED VEHICLES AND OTHER WEAPONS, FUELS, SPAREPARTS AND RATIONS ETC. ETC. TO CONTINUE FIGHTING.

I APPEAL TO THE MUSLIM LEAGUE OF FIJI WHETHER IT IS POSSIBLE TO ASK FOR FORGIVENESS TO THE GREAT COUNCIL OF CHIEFS BEFORE WE ALL EXPERIENCE EVIL AT ITS BEST PERFORMANCES IN FIJI. I AM SAYING THESE BECAUSE YOU ARE IN THE DRIVING SEAT TODAY AND THAT IS HOW MUCH WE KNOW.

FRANK BAINIMARAMA IS NOT ALONE SINCE THE FIRST DAY HE VISITED A RICH MUSLIM HOME NO. 12 IN DENARAU OVER 9 YEARS AGO TO LAY THE ROAD MAP WE ARE AT IT TODAY. WE ALSO HAVE INFORMATION OF THE MUSLIM FUNDS SITTING IN SWITZERLAND IS UNDER THE CARE OF AIYAZ KHAIYUM’S UNTY EX-JUDGE, SHAMEEM AND HER HUSBAND, ASLAM KHAN THE FORMER C.E.O. VODAFONE. INFORMATION IS INFORMATION AND CAN BE VERIFIED OF ITS CLARITY.

WE ARE CONTINUE PRAYING FOR OUR 45 BROTHERS AT ARMS WITH THEIR FAMILIES AND WE SHOULD LOVE EACH OTHER AS ONE NATION AND ONE DESTINY.

That's another COWARDLY act trying to lay the blame of all that's happened thus far squarely at the feet of Muslims in Fiji, when the RFMF is 99% itaukei and the regime top brass is overwhelmingly itaukei.

Simply check out the "who's who" list on Fiji govt website.

What? Indulging in b'day parties, in the middle of a raging civil war zone is begging to be killed.

It also sounds a convenient excuse & cover up by the officers in charge for what really boils down to a lack of adequate training, experience and therefore, preparedness for the real likelihood that eventuated last week.

Where has all the money spent on the Fiji military in the last two decades at least gone to?

How the hell can Tikoitoga keep saying that "the men are safe" when their whereabouts are not known. To add salt to injury, he says that their 'morale is high'. How can one's morale be high when one is held captive? What stupidity and a bloody BIG lie!!

Anonymous said...

We have not stood by Israel because Kubuabola on behalf of Bainimarama was in Teheran early this year and signed a Friendship Agreement with Iran. Iran is sworn to the destruction of Israel and is working on the nuclear missiles to achieve this. According to intelligence reports they are 12 months away from completion. All preparations are in underground facilities which cannot be reached by bombs. Further, Iran is supplying arms and men Assad - the no.1 enemy of Al Nusra.
Too bad for the boys who now suffer becos of the glory seeking actions of Bainimarama - there's no way out of this one.

What Fiji needs right now is:
- a "Julia Gillard" as PM,
- a "Julie Bishop" as President and in charge of our foreign relations, and
- a "Margaret Thatcher" in charge of our Defence
A formidable female trio to whip the country into shape.

We stood by Israel since the 1970's.
We acted as a buffer between Israel and the PLO in Lebanon; then in Sinai; and now between Syria and Israel in the Golan Heights.

I think Israel should have made known to Bainimarama LAST YEAR that they would no longer stand by Fiji in the Middle East.

ITS NOT FUNNY TO BE BETRAYED BY YOUR FRIEND IN THE MIDDLE OF A FIREFIGHT.

"I'm totally awed at the Filipinos' escape & evasion tactics - the chaps are totally silent, very patient very deliberate and determined, at one point they're less than 10 meters from a group of rebels yet they were able to crawl literally under the noses of the rebels without being detected".

To you Fijian soldiers:

ISRAEL IS NOT GOING TO SUPPORT YOU ( for whatever reason)

AMERICA WILL NOT SUPPORT YOU (because they are supporting the Syrian Rebels ie al-Nushra)

SO BASICALLY YOU FIJIANS ARE NOW SITTING-DUCKS

al-Nushra can make another raid NOW and TAKE THE REMAINING FIJIANS,and no one will help you.

May I suggest that Tikoitoga and Bainisona STOP TALKING BULLSHIT AND ARRANGE SOME SORT OF SUPPORT for the remaining soldiers should another raid happen.

WHAT WE ARE SEEING NOW IS THE INCOMPETENCIES OF THE FIJIAN ARMY AND ALSO FIJI GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP..
Bainisona and Tikoitoga seem to be way out of their depth.

Anonymous said...

Pino says...the Fijian soldiers followed the same protocol as the Pino soldiers. They received the same orders from the UN Commander to stand down. The two Pino Commanders at the two posts refused to take the orders given by the UN Commander because obviously they are not the same army even though the serve under the same outfit - UN. The two Pino commanders sought clarification from their No. 1 back in Pino who ordered them not to surrender their weapons, meaning, don't surrender at all. The Fiji Commander did the same and called Tikoitonga in Fiji to seek advice and instructions. Tikoitonga spoke to Frank and Frank was initially upset saying, are they 'men or mouse'. Frank later considered the order came from the UN Commander and instructed Tikoitonga to order his men to stand down. Hence the order from Fiji's Military Commander for the captured 45 to stand down and surrender their arms.....Game Over....

The sad thing is that the Military took their bloody time informing the families of the captured. Most of the family members learnt of the capture of their fathers or sons through other soldiers or media outlets like coup 4.5. Fiji Military only released the names through the Fiji Sun yesterday.

Furthermore, the Fiji Military will not at this stage report that several of the soldiers have been killed - between 10 and 20.

Unconfirmed reports from sources on the ground have revealed that several soldiers have been killed. An Al Nusra truck conveying a number of soldiers was also missiled by the Israeli killing all the occupants. All the captured have been separated and moved to different locations. This will be a long haul and some may be released but in the end, some will be casualties and some will take years to be released.

All Hail Bainimarama said...

Fijian soldiers are boy scouts, the Filipinos are real soldiers. That's because they used to be under the command of an asshole by the name of Bainisona.

Anonymous said...

”[The RFMF] followed orders and we should be proud of them for that. The Filipinos should be ashamed of themselves for defying the orders of their commanding officer."

Wrong. The Filipinos were in a high state of readiness when the first attack came. They recognised the UN order as foolish. So they held off the rebels while they checked with their own high command, which correctly countermanded it, and advised them instead to stand and fight until they could be reinforced, extracted, or find the opportunity to exfiltrate.

On the other hand, the Fijian troops were groggy and unprepared. The rebels were already inside the camp when our soldierschecked with high command, which only confirmed the lamulamu UN order. It was foolishness compounding foolishness compounding complacency.

Troops are worse than valueless when they follow illegal orders. Such are the Fijian troops. They've been following illegal orders since 2006, doing their country and their army as an institution a grave disservice.

Their officers are incompetents, cowards, and traitors.

Also, C4.5 is correct. The order to surrender had to come from the Commander or the Landforce Commander.

Why is the regime trying to bury aspects of this story? Why do we still need to get our information from C4.5? When will this cowardly regime allow a free press again?

The main problem in this situation in Golan ,is that Fijian soldiers have not been in a real combat situation since the second world war ,and the Malaya campaign, along with no combat exercise for the last 10 years or so. How on Earth are they supposed to put up a resistance without any real training? It's one thing to proclaim "brave Fijian soldier' but quite another to be actually brave. These poor soldiers can only wear their uniform and march in public displays like Hibiscus festival. They are not combat ready by any means and they are not capable of anything more than being the bully they normally are from their school days...Bullies give up very quickly when someone stronger and mightier than them come along for a challenge.THAT'S THE REALITY OF RFMF AND THE "BRAVE" SOLDIERS....JUST BULLIES IN UNIFORM PRETENDING TO BE WORLD CLASS SOLDIERS.

Breaking News: FF Manifesto

We have ruled this country for the last 7.5 years and our records prove that we will continue to do what we have done from Day 1. Some of these include:
Education: no one needs to go to school. We made sure that we don’t examine students already, why stress them any further. Don’t go to school.
Health: we got a new hospital in Navua, more will be made by Chinese. Patients will need to bring buckets or maybe the rubbish bins we donate, since the toilets can’t flush toilet paper. Mothers don’t have to travel to hospitals to deliver babies, they can do that at bus stops, at homes, where ever they want. Patients should not bother to come to hospitals for tests and surgery. There are no medicines, if they are supplied, we can not take responsibility for expired or wrong ones. Be assured we will take all care to make sure you don’t survive the surgeries.
Vat: we miscalculated how much our own families demand. We will increase the vat to 18%, maybe 20%
Tax:the tax reduction of yesterday is just for now, we will soon charge you for using the road, footpaths, bridges, govt buildings. We will bring back radio license which was there ages ago. If you buy food items, cigarettes, alcohol, water, clothes, medicine, all will be taxed since you can’t live without these.
Media: only FBC and Fiji Sun, nothing else
Electricity and water: we will have to increase the deposit for both.
More to follow

Should Fiji Troops Be in Syria as UN Peacekeepers?
SUVA, Fiji — Sep 3, 2014, 5:59 AM ET
By NICK PERRY and PITA LIGAIULA Associated Press
Associated Press
For years, Fiji's tiny military force has carried out two high-profile tasks: Leading coups, and peacekeeping. It's a mix that has drawn questions — now more than ever, with 45 Fijian troops captured by Syrian insurgents.

The force of just 3,500 is devoted largely to peacekeeping around the world, but lacks the sophisticated hardware other militaries rely on to keep their troops safe. The troops have not trained with their Australian, New Zealand and American counterparts since 2006, when the military took control of this relaxed South Pacific nation of 900,000.

Fiji wasn't even sure at first how many of its troops were captured last week in the Golan Heights, where they were part of a U.N. force that has monitored the buffer zone between Syria and Israel for four decades. The U.N. announced that 43 were taken. Fiji later said it was 44. By Monday, Fiji had raised the number to 45.

Jone Baledrokadroka, Fiji's former land forces commander who is now a visiting fellow at the Australian National University in Canberra, said the Golan Heights deployment appeared rushed.

"They decided to go in June last year, and by August they were in," he said. "It was quite hasty. I knew they didn't have the logistics and training for such a deployment, or for the escalating violence in Syria."

The U.N. says its peacekeepers are well vetted.

"The training, preparation and background of the troops are looked at very carefully," said Osnat Lubrani, the U.N. resident coordinator in Fiji. She added that "the intention of sending troops is that they are not meant to be in danger at all."

Fijians this week have been holding candlelight vigils for their troops, who have been held by the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front in an unknown location since Aug. 28. The U.N. says it's negotiating with the insurgents, who have made several demands for releasing the Fijians, including being taken off the U.N. terrorist list.

Fiji has long taken on an outsized role in the world's peacekeeping duties, even as it has been roiled by several domestic coups. The military promises it will finally hold democratic elections this month.

The U.N. has been willing to overlook Fiji's domestic problems when it comes to accepting its peacekeepers for dangerous and unpopular assignments. For Fiji, the work means international prestige, goodwill and money.

In 2009, New Zealand's Foreign Minister Murray McCully called the U.N. "utterly hypocritical."

"It's very hard to see how they can justify using military people who have overthrown the rule of law in their own country as the agents to enforce the rule of law as peacekeepers somewhere else," McCully told The New Zealand Herald newspaper.

McCully said Wednesday his position has changed now that Fiji has promised elections, and New Zealand welcomes Fiji's peacekeeping role.

James Brown, a military fellow at Australia's Lowy Institute for International Policy and a former Australian commander, said that prior to 2006, the Fijians were good soldiers.

"Their basic military skills were pretty impressive. They did lots of training in Fiji and lots of training with us," he said. "Obviously, they lack a lot of sophisticated equipment that other militaries have. They don't have the intelligence and surveillance systems."

US Vice President Joe Biden says America will follow the terrorists who killed two American journalists "to the gates of hell".

Speaking at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, Biden said that the Islamic State militant group responsible for beheading Americans James Foley and Steven Sotloff won't intimidate the United States.

Can Commander Tikoitoga stop saying the 45 hostage are alright and safe when he doesn't even know where they are? Is he saying that he is relying on the assurances from Al Nusra. Stop misleading and giving false hopes Tikoitoga. We have families hanging on to every word you utter.

And for Tikoitoga and Qiliho, best thing to do is take over Govt. Hang or execute FB and ASK and principal conspirators, including complicit family members. Confiscate their properties. Jail all known regime supporters who took part including those opposing regime now in elections. Reset election rules and time to ensure it is truly fair. Have proper elections, have national unity govt. or multi-party govt. to rebuild and take Fiji out of this shithole. Meanwhile overhaul Army, retrench and get rid of rotten ones. Jail those directly implicated for torture,abuse and other indiscretions. Rebuild and re-train for an army with core capabilities that will be trained, well equipped and have strong basic military and civic principles. If you do that you can be given immunity. Restore GCC as bastion of peace and stability for all races. GCC or Senate to play more stronger advisory role to President and Govt and include prominent leaders and representatives of all communities/religions/races. And current President to be executed as well. If you guarantee permanence of Taukei land ownership but have fair market based tenureship and access opportunities, practical vanua system and humanitarian and faith based lotu, then peace, prosperity and goodwill can be guaranteed for all others. This has to be the cornerstone for the future.

Fiji army head considers complaint against Rabuka
Updated at 9:24 pm on 3 September 2014
Tweet on Twitter Share on Facebook
Fiji's military commander has threatened to lay a police complaint against the former Prime Minister, Sitiveni Rabuka, over comments made about the soldiers captured by Syrian rebels in the Golan Heights.
In an interview with Radio New Zealand this morning, Mr Rabuka said Fiji's Muslim community could face a serious backlash if the peacekeepers were harmed by their captors, the al-Qaeda affiliated group, al-Nusra.
Speaking to Auckland's Radio Tarana, Brigadier General Mosese Tikoitoga says the comments are very disappointing from a former Prime Minister and could be tantamount to inciting violence.
"This is totally a mysterious comment, it could border on inciting violence and I think it should be reported to the police."
Fiji's military commander Mosese Tikoitoga.
Sitiveni Rabuka has since come out to say that he stands by his comments and was just pointing out something that could potentially happen.

Can some please advise Commander how to speak to media? Look at this. "..these Fijian soldiers watch armed elements behead people beside their gate. That would have weakened anybody with the right mind..."

Well it did weaken them didn't it? And so it follows that they should not have been there in the first place or were not adequately prepared or not give proper orders and etc etc.

Geez this guy keeps spruiking gaffes...

This is the problem:

The RFMF has gotten so very good at Peacekeeping that they have forgotten how to fight!! Both sides of the blade on the sword have been blunted to the point where sixth sense and instinct are not awakened when an obvious threat has presented itself.

At least 12 - 13 years ago, RFMF soldiers on 'TACTICAL' exercises in Fiji were on a tactical patrol with Sulu-vakatoga's hanging around there necks. On the same exercise, another Platoon were sunning their wet clothes out in the sunshine in a clearing.

I know - I was there and saw it!!!

The RFMF has lost the edge for conventional warfare for which it was once known.

A very sorry (and now very embarrassing) state of affairs.

I think 43 was the correct number to start off with. Then one location realised one of it's boys make one side-i-step to the taralala party so the count went up to 44. Then another 'taralala fallah' was found missing from another location - score now 45 - Nil!

I wonder if they had a real'Rubbish Hall' complete with coconut fronds wrapped around the posts to taralala in?

Probably not!

The Filipino commander also said in an interview that their 'honour' was at stake. This was one of the reasons he opted to defy the order of the Indian UN commander and contacted his superiors in Pino-who supported his decision not to surrender.

The story about our soldiers calling Israel for help is total bullshit!

Reason being is that could not have!

That Fiji location from where our boys were taken (As with all other FijiBatt locations) would only have been able to call other locations in the same company and their Company HQ. They would have been on the Company frequency (Net)

The Company HQ (As with all other FijiBatt Company HQ's) would be in touch with the Battalion HQ on a completely different frequency.

The Battalion HQ (As with all other National Battalion HQ's participating in UNDOF) would then be in touch with the Force HQ (UNDOF HQ) on a completely different frequency.

The Israeli's do not go around handing out their radio frequencies (or mobile phone numbers) - that would be a severe security breach they cannot afford.

There is no way our boys could have called the Israelis.

I say it's a case of someone watching too many movies where the Main Boy picks up a radio and is able to speak directly with POTUS!

A top Indian Lt Gen commanding the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) -- that is currently engaged in a confrontation with the Al Nusra rebel group of Syria -- at Golan Heights, has broken his silence on major a controversy that erupted this week after the Philippine military sough a formal investigation against him for allegedly endangering the safety of its peacekeeping troops.

After reports from Manila, in which the Philippines armed forces chief alleged that Lt-Gen Iqbal Singh Singha endangered the Filipino troops by ordering them to lay down their weapons to Syrian rebels to ensure the safety of 44 Fijian peacekeepers earlier taken hostage, Singha told the India Today that both the UN and the Indian Army backed his decision that has so far not resulted in any UN casualties.

Speaking over the phone from Golan Heights, Singha said that disregarding his orders of putting down arms, the Filipino troops had endangered the lives of 44 Fijian peacekeepers who have been besieged by the rebels and are in the conflict area. "The non-professional actions of the Filipino troops have endangered the lives of the Fijian soldiers. They have defied orders at a time when we had negotiated a ceasefire with the rebels to ensure that all troops in the conflict area could exit," Singha said. The officer, who has had a vast experience of commanding troops in Kashmir and other conflict zones, added that the UN has supported his call on the issue. "The higher UN echelon as well as the Indian Army agrees with me that the decision was correct. It is an act of cowardice to desert posts especially when a delicate ceasefire was in place," the officer said. "They broke the chain of command and UN orders", he added.

Sources said that the Filipino troops disregarded the orders by the Commander to not fire for effect against the rebels and in the process killed three combatants. This has raised tempers questions against the UN troops in the area.
"We had already moved 212 Filipinos to safety. There was only one post left with 40 soldiers and we were negotiating for them too and had secured a ceasefire for the night. Military action would have resulted in casualties on both sides and that would have also affected the fate of 45 Fijians abducted earlier," the officer said.

Adding that the "UN HQ has backed me up for all decisions." Sources have also alleged that the Philippine side had been facing trouble due to indiscipline and callousness earlier with 22 of them being abducted last year in the same area after they defied orders and moved without weapons. In an incident last year, rebels had even taken two machine guns from a Philippine post.

Incidentally, Singha was appreciated by both the UN and the US State Department for his role earlier this month in securing the release of a US journalist who was kidnapped by Syrian rebels.

Besides, Singha who is commanding the mission, India has 194 soldiers under 1,250-troop UNDOF, which was established to maintain the ceasefire between Israeli and Syrian forces and supervise their disengagement. The mission has seen action lately after the Syrian civil war.

India is one of the largest contributors to the UN peacekeeping missions with 6,865 soldiers deployed in across the world.

This could have been my brother , your father and your loved ones. Why are you calling them cowards ?, they are mere peacekeepers .
The sad picture in Fiji sun depicts a wife or sister , or partner who Is in tears praying for his return .That sums up the situation . It's simply try toughest times for the captured soldiers and their loved ones .

Learn to move on , learn a lot and love a little more . Let's simply pray for their release .

Someone said that our darkest hour was following the capture of our soldiers.

We should have no issue with the soldiers. If they die, they die, and their wives can easily buy a house and find a new husband.

i am a little relieved by the fact that they were ordered by the UN commander to surrender. So it is not really an act of cowardice!

I fully agree that we continue to "pray for their release"!!

Similarly, I agree that "Learn to move on"...admit that the FMF under Tikoitoga and this Prime Minister send our men to this highly volatile assignment without proper military equipment and attire, and probably not proper training.

Hence, the fault is not necessarily the captor'S
alone.Our Military leaders must take most of the blame. Our Government leaderS are as guilty!

Indeed, all of the captives are our blood relatives! Their respective spouse and children are our dear relatives too.

Fiji is not going to send additional Fiji soldiers to this middle-eastern hell hole under the same FMF and Government leaders? are we??

Do do so borders on denial of the facts of the situation and willful intent to slaughter innocent Fijians!

Will they "learn"?? as a necessity you promoted?

Seriously, I do not think so as their conscience are sheared beyond repentance and sane reason.

Filipino Soldiers were also commanded to surrender BUT they called their Commanders in the Philippines where they were told to hold their position and fight back (because this is a life and death situation against a group of terrorist linked to Al Qaeda.

The FMF surrendered which meantime in the Arms term that you can't fight, lack of power,frightened and weak etc.
Hey mate, this is their life, family, national and the world will suffer as the terrorist will start demanding favours against their lives.

If the Commanders said to them to shot themselves or eat Shit, Will they do it??
Of course NO...

As always there are two sides to most stories but many here never consider that.

"" After reports from Manila, in which the Philippines armed forces chief alleged that Lt-Gen Iqbal Singh Singha endangered the Filipino troops by ordering them to lay down their weapons to Syrian rebels to ensure the safety of 44 Fijian peacekeepers earlier taken hostage, Singha told the India Today that both the UN and the Indian Army backed his decision that has so far not resulted in any UN casualties. Speaking over the phone from Golan Heights, Singha said that disregarding his orders of putting down arms, the Filipino troops had endangered the lives of 44 Fijian peacekeepers who have been besieged by the rebels and are in the conflict area. "The non-professional actions of the Filipino troops have endangered the lives of the Fijian soldiers. They have defied orders at a time when we had negotiated a ceasefire with the rebels to ensure that all troops in the conflict area could exit," Singha said. The officer, who has had a vast experience of commanding troops in Kashmir and other conflict zones, added that the UN has supported his call on the issue. "The higher UN echelon as well as the Indian Army agrees with me that the decision was correct. It is an act of cowardice to desert posts especially when a delicate ceasefire was in place," the officer said. "They broke the chain of command and UN orders", he added. Sources said that the Filipino troops disregarded the orders by the Commander to not fire for effect against the rebels and in the process killed three combatants. This has raised tempers questions against the UN troops in the area. "We had already moved 212 Filipinos to safety. There was only one post left with 40 soldiers and we were negotiating for them too and had secured a ceasefire for the night.""

We can judge the relative merits of the respective commanders' decisions in the Golan Heights by their fruit.

In the Filipinos' case, all of their men are safe, their weapons secure, their dignity intact, and they're covered in glory. They brought honour to the reputation of Filipino arms.

In the Fijians' case, on the other hand, all of the men are either dead or being held hostage by bloodcrazed religious fanatics. Their weapons are now in the hands of the enemy. They've been humiliated. They're covered in ignominy. They've brought shame to the reputation of the Fijian bati.

It's pretty easy to see who was right and who was wrong.

It's a bitter harvest for the RFMF, following the cowardly instincts of the bully-in-chief. And the longer it follws this traitor, the worse off it will be in the long run.

Iqbal Singh, it is an act of cowardice to order your troops to surrender themselves, their weapons and their position to the enemy when they still have the power to resist.

The Fijian peacekeepers endangered the lives of the Filipinos by giving up their weapons and their position and by trying to cajole the Filipinos to surrender, too, at the behest of the enemy.

The ceasefire negotiated by the UN did not allow all troops to exit the conflict area. Where are the Fijians?

If a ceasefire was in effect, then how did the Nusra Front lose three combatants rushing the gate at the Filipino camp?

How is it that you can refer to India's high command, but the Filipinos are faulted for referring to their own high command?

The Filipinos did not heighten tension in the area by performing their role and then finding their way to freedom. You heightened tensions in the area by ordering our Fijian soldiers to surrender, thereby creating the ongoing hostage crisis.

You should be relieved of your command, with immediate effect.

The Fiji soldiers is a big group and definitely the rebels will split them into small groups and handed over to other Militant groups and that will be a turning point to this hostage takeover. The other militant groups will probably have a different agenda to the first group that took these soldiers in the first place. Fiji will have to expect the unexpected news.The commander should stop giving false comments to the press because at the moment the UN does even know where the 45 are. All guns are pointing at the QEB.

The seizure & detainment of the Fijian soldiers i believe is just a diversion & distraction for what really is going on in Fiji.That is to keep people mind focused on the new's like something very tragic but to deflect the mass people in focusing more of Bainimarama's looming evil plan & that is the sudden change of bringing election earlier.Sort of like a, below the belt blow, when people are still off guard by events of the Chinese Vessel shooting the Fijians 17th August and captured Fijian
soldiers in Syria on 27th August.

As we know, Al Nusra is armed & supported by the US army to bring down the Syrian president.So my believe, the US might have advised the UN Commander in Syria boarder to inform the Fijian platoon leader to put down their weapon's & give in to their demand's.
The essence once again,same as the missing Malaysian flight MH370 & the blowing up of MH 17, is diversion and distraction.

Also see the numbers its all illuminati numbers MH17,August 17(upload youtube of Fishing vessel shooting, one month before election),September 17(election date).27th captured fijian army

All this video & tragic news is just a smokecreen. All of this is to gin up anger, hatred and most of all get your mind off what’s really going down.

What does the magician do? Draw your attention to one hand while the other is busy preparing the next trick.

The youtube fijian shooting(actually pirates from another country) & the Captured Fijian drama inter-twined events is no mere coincidence. Same planners. Same perpetrators.

It’s time to stop being hypnotized by these bastards.

It’s time to activate and stand up for what is true and right.

This is the second or third time I've read someone say that the Americans are supplying the Nusra Front. That's simply not true -- at least, not directly. The Americans belatedly decided to provide some supplies to "vetted" opposition groups in Syria, in order to prevent radical Islamist groups like the Nusra Front from coming to power in a post-Assad Syria. ISIS recently seized vast quantities of weapons and supplies recently from the US-supplied Iraqi army, so it's likely some of that found its way into the hands of its junior partner in jihad, Al Nusra.

Your accusation is like saying that the RFMF is supplying weapons to the Nusra Front. It is, but not deliberately -- unless, perhaps, Khaiyum is colluding with Al Nusra. And the RFMF gave the weapons directly to the Nusra Front, instead of like the Americans, through two different middlemen.

It was bad enough that the Fijian soldiers were partying the night before the surrender, but what I find really objectionable is the fact that Bainimarama and Khaiyum were partying the night AFTER the incident.

'THE WORLD is full of men who want to be right, when actually the secret of a man's strength and his pathway to true honour is his ability to ADMIT FAULT WHEN HE HAS FAILED. God wants to fill the church with men who can say they are wrong when THEY ARE WRONG.

A man who is willing to humble himself before God and his family and say:"I was wrong." will find that his family has all the confidence in the world in him and will much more readily follow him.

If he stubbornly refuses to repent or admit he was wrong, their confidence in him and in his leadership erodes and nothing good follows.

This is what will happen...Bainiyum will ensure that scenario will never occur. That's why we have pre-polling. So they can shove in extra ballot papers between the 3rd & 17th. Remember they printed an extra abnormal number of ballot papers at Star Printery instead of at the Gov.t printery...so they've got it all under control. When Baini sed they were going to win all 50 seats-he actually meant it. They are desperate now-there is no way he has majority support in the military...not after what happened in Golan- so he'll be so relieved they printed extra ballots cos he knew he'd need them for unprecedented incidents...like getting his butt kicked in the balloting.

That story is suss as its source in backing the UN commander's claim that the decision by the Filipino military not to surrender their arms endangered the captured Fijian soldiers.

Hello. They were already endangered when they were deployed to a raging war zone without proper training and experience, resulting in their laxity and reacting the way they did when they confronted by terrorists.

Yes, it was reported that the UN Commander had successfully negotiated the release of 21 Filipino soldiers who had been kidnapped by Syrian rebels BUT that was more than A YEAR AGO...and all the rebels demanded then was that President Assad's troops withdraw from a nearby village where they had clashed the wind before.

And more importantly, that was BEFORE ISIS/ISIL formed or was recreated from the ashes by Baghdadi as he tried to merge various rebel forces for his dream Caliphate.

Then it evolved into (Islamic State) earlier this year... and the video recordings of beheadings to further their cause became very prominent as part of their propaganda on the Intl stage.

Its obvious that the Filipino military had read the unfolding situation in Syria well and reacted accordingly.

If they had elite forces within those 40 who fought their way out of the siege, then that was an excellent strategy to "beef up their defence capacity" given the escalating situation in Syria... and the earlier targetting of their troops by rebel forces perhaps.

Bruce Jones, director and senior fellow of the NYU Center on International Cooperation, and senior fellow and director of the Managing Global Order Program at the Brookings Institution, spoke with Trend Lines about the difficulty of conducting U.N. peacekeeping missions in conflict zones.

“UNDOF is one of the classic U.N. peacekeeping forces in that it is an interposition force,” he said.

“It is designed to literally sit between two armies in a contested territory and hold that ground. It is not designed as a fighting force.”

He explained that the U.N. secretary-general sets rules of engagement according to the mandate the Security Council has set for the peacekeeping force.

“If the Security Council mandates them to sit peaceably between two parties, he gives them the rules of engagement to do that,” he said.

"At the same time, however, the governments contributing forces to the mission have their own rules for their contingent forces regarding how to respond to particular circumstances, so the U.N.’s rules of engagement are not actually binding in real terms," Jones said.

Jones said that the Syrian insurgents made a major mistake in kidnapping the peacekeepers, causing international actors to question the rebels’ agenda.

For the first time in the Syrian civil war, al-Qaida fighters are hunkered down on Israel's doorstep, and Israelis in the lush, hilly Golan Heights who have long considered Syrian President Bashar Assad their bitter foe are now worried about something more ominous — that they could become the militants' next target.

The push into the Golan by the Nusra Front, as al-Qaida's branch in Syria is known, comes just two weeks after Israel ended a 50-day war against Hamas on its southern border with the Gaza Strip, giving the conflict-weary nation another cause for concern.

Israelis in the Golan -- a long-disputed territory that marks the frontier between the two countries -- have grown accustomed to hearing the sound of distant battles between rival forces in Syria's civil war.

But last week's seizure of the strategic Quneitra border crossing by a mix of rebels — including the Nusra Front, fighters of the Western-backed Free Syrian Army and others — has created an unprecedented situation that has brought the extremists to within just a few meters (yards) of Israeli positions.

The Syrian government is "not our cup of tea," said Gabi Kuniel, an Israeli who tends vineyards recently damaged by mortar shells when the violence spilled over to the Israeli-held side of the strategic Golan Heights.

But "we prefer that the Syrian army controls this region and not a group of radical al-Qaida Muslim people," he said Wednesday, sitting behind a concrete structure near his fields to stay out of the line of fire.

As he spoke, heavy machine gunfire could be heard in the distance. Earlier, a plume of smoke rose from the Syrian side of the frontier fence.

"After the stuff-ups about the dates for pre-polling Saneem has a nerve to say that it’s the responsibility of voters to ensure that they are at their designated polling venues on time. Radio Fiji has confirmed written information from the Fiji Electoral Office contained mistakes. The difficulties of a one day poll were spelt out for Khaiyum months ago and he ignored them, only to spring pre-polling on a much wider scale and to change the announced schedules. Saneem should do something to avoid future problems, not blame the voters."

Mr. Ribbs @ 11:16 - FYI, The officer in charge of that Mirbat outpost, Capt Mike Kealy did not issue orders to the effect that no one should go out to assist Laba. Therefore Tak did not defy orders when he ran 800 meters to assist his fellow countryman and comrade in arms. He VOLUNTEERED to go despite their post coming under heavy enemy fire.

And yes, sadly, that warrior spirit does not seem to be alive among our present day troops. No soldier in Fiji's army of today is capable of winning any sort of decoration in an armed conflict. The pretentious medals they wear is doled out by the illegal PM and is not worth the tin it's made out of. We have been reduced to a laughing stock with the actions of a few.

Gone are the days of Laba, Tak, Cpl Sukanaivalu, Fred Marafono, George Mate and the brave warriors that carried the Fiji flag and name with pride into battle-fields the world over. These men must be turning in their graves today.

BTW - Laba should have been awarded a posthumous VC for that action instead of a measly MID.

Unions , apart from a few of them , have historically been a huge impediment of growth in Fiji .. Let alone the world . The extent of corruption is mind boggling . In Australia , there is a case before the courts implicating former pm , Julia Gillard , in a corrupt deal with a union boss .
Unions are needed, however , in fiji such a small country , we can perhaps just scrap unions and have a semi - govt body that looks At basic issues as : workers rights , pay increases . Work place discrimination etc . This will get rid of the millions that these unionists get , example - Dewan an ex union leader of the fiji bank employees union back in 1994 ... I was a representative from a bank and he called a meeting at fbeu office in Gordon street . Purpose : we had to vote on an increase in his Salary at the time by more than $20000 over and above CPI , the perks etc . When some of us refused the vote. He was hell bent on making life hell for us at the banks .., he was very close with HR manager at the bank . Point is : unionists are corrupt .... But in countries like Fiji .. Where corruption largely goes unpunished. ... The workers suffer ... And unionists simply justify their existence by doing very little ... If anything ... The same result could well be achieved by a govt employee. We will never truly know the amount Chaudhary stole from Fijiians .. He is an astute n conniving thief ... One thing is for sure ... He would have never been able to do it without his position as a unionist ... That was his launching platform .

SO all you idiots who wonder why there is not many Indians in the armed forces of Fiji....THINK and don't moan about why there is no Indian as a hostage in Syria...it's because ,if there were more ,then you lot wouldn't be worrying about coups, as they would be ruling you by now !!!! KILA?????? Incidentally ,history records Indian volunteer soldiers as the highest in history to date, 2,500,000 (that's 2.5 million for the uneducated) .Had these Indians not volunteered and sacrificed themselves to stop the Japanese and German onslaught, then you all would be eating sushi daily and speaking Japanese. Thank them someday for that sacrifice, and read the bloody wikipaedia about "the largest volunteer group ever for military service and most of you uneducated sycophants will be quite surprised. Guess what? The bloody British used them and then starved 1.5 million to death immediately thereafter calling it the Bengal famine ,when in reality , the British stole their food and sent it to Britain to sustain the white mischief we all endure today !!!! Suck on that thumb !!!

Anonymous 9:09 AM, it sounds like you're the one who should return to Pakistan, or perhaps as a Khaiyum lover, you're trying to bring Pakistan here to Fiji?

We'll never accept a New Fiji decreed by thugs and traitors, only a new Fiji legislated by elected representatives in accordance with a lawfully ratified constitution ssuing from the people.

Workers in private industry should be guaranteed the right to collective bargaining. I don't mind if union officials cannot double-dip, but then the same must be true for the PM and cabinet members. We all know Frank and Aiyaz get paid multiple salaries. They're fooling no one.

You've already created an organisation with the power to destroy the government and the economy. It's called the RFMF, and it's negative abilities have been well demonstrated.

The anti-Muslim threats are dismaying but an early proof of the widespread and ntense resentment certain Muslims are causing by vocally supporting the regime and its treason and/or maligning the Christian faith. Nonetheless, as Christians we should turn the other cheek, even while, as Fijians, we must bring down this illegal regime.

@ Lee Kuan Yu.....How do you pronounce your name...do I thrown a can down the stairs and mimick the sound to pronounce your name....hey by the way if you did not know, Fiji was the only Pacific Island nation that had a battalion which fought in world war II in the Solomons, PNG, Kiribati and assisted the British, Australian, USA and NZ forces defeat the Japanese. Only two Indo Fijians volunteered to join and fight. The rest were cutting sugar cane, making money and refused to fight. So...no I don't think we would have take to sushi...besides our kokoda taste better....We also assisted the Brits in Malaya and Korea...had a bloody good record until your fancy pants rear admiral with brow stained rear took over.....Hey why don't you join the Fiji army...No records of a slant eye rice eater in the army...

The list was provided to remind people not to vote for those involved in previous coups and standing in this coming election. Ironic that Frank denounces the 2000 coup yet knew about the coup and was indirectly involved and did nothing as an Army Commander to prevent the 2000 coup. He denounces and reminds people of the 2000 coup yet members of his parliament were involved in the coup.

The truth about victor Lal ;victor and his family were allegedly denied a $50 million tender in fiji . He was personally likened to groups that were aware of the 1987 coup and did nothing to write about it . He was also Aware ... Of the 2000 coup in advance .as an editor did nothing about it .
You see ... Victor is a closet " hypocrite " who only wishes to destabilise fiji .. He also prints stuff .. On his website without verification n without credence . He has done some good work ... But as always you've Got to question the objectives of a man who will RISK his country going into anarchy and destroy way more lives ... A mean who leaks like this ...

Jale admitted his partner, Mohammad Salamat Ali, forged the criminal history without my knowledge and that Ali had told him to lie in a Police statement in an attempt to frame me. Jale would eventually sign an affidavit confirming that he lied and I was innocent of the allegations. (See copy of the alleged affidavit)

He was not apologetic. He was not in the least bit sorry for his actions. The fact that I could have gone to jail meant nothing to him. It was just business. Dirty business. That's the way the government did things. You were either with them, or against them. When I chose not to pay the kickbacks, I was against them, and the assistance and guidance I gave them during the election meant nothing.

"I could have gone to jail," I said.

"So what, we all could go to jail. Qarase, me, Navi, the bloody cabinet, we all could go to jail," he replied.

He then went on and said when speaking of the Qarase cabinet, "all of them are corrupt". When I asked about Qarase, he said, "He's the biggest crook of the lot."

He explained that is why they were chosen to be ministers, because they were corrupt. They were selected solely for their ability to be dishonest. After all, Navi was the Chairman of the SDL Candidate Selection Committee.

This was stunning evidence to obtain as this was the face of the government speaking, and it was all captured on video.

He was not only Prime Minister Qarase's right hand man, but he was his official spokesman, and was the national director of the party and the campaign manager. Next to Navi, and the Attorney General Bale, no one else was more influential or a bigger insider.

Anonymous said...

Navi confirmed in these covertly video recordings that Prime Minister Qarase was deeply dishonest and corrupt, as were all his ministers. The election in 2001 was rigged against Dr Baba's New Labour Unity Party because they knew that a coalition would be formed with the Labour party to create government. Dr Baba had won his seat in Suva, Navi told me, but they had fixed the result against him.

Navi also confirmed that the 2006 elections were rigged with 10 seats targeted.

On the video recording, I act surprised at such a crude attempt to rort the electoral system.

"If I did it, I'd get 10 years prison," I said. "Why didn't anyone investigate it?"

Navi replied: "Because they're all into it - all of them".

I asked why the police didn't stop it. He replied it was the police who did it for them.

He also confirmed that Qarase had millions of dollars stashed in Australia and New Zealand bank accounts and with the Habib Bank in Pakistan.

His accusations of corruption included ministers from the Methodist church and the Great Council of Chiefs as well as virtually every minister in Qarase's government.

He explained that is why they were chosen by him in his capacity of chairman of the SDL candidate selection committee in the first place, because they were all corruptible.

Navi was dismissive of Qarase's ministers, as demonstrated by this extract from one transcript.

FOSTER Are there any of the ministers, if we put a company together with you involved, are there any one of them we can actually bring on board to give us credibility?

NAISORO I have more credibility than the whole bunch of them together. I never went through the same thing. These people are all unemployable.

FOSTER You think they are all finished?

NAISORO Finished.

When I asked if he (Naisoro) thought any of the deposed ministers were going to get into another government, he said: "I wouldn't use them, they are idiots, they are broke."

FOSTER Why?

NAISORO They are all broke, they will be headaches, they are imbeciles.

FOSTER So why did you make them ministers if they are imbeciles?

NAISORO Because they are imbeciles and you can control them.

FOSTER So you can control them so you make them ministers?

NAISORO Yes.

FOSTER Why?

NAISORO Because you can control them.

Most interestingly, Navi said the coup by the Commander was the best thing that could happen to Fiji. I asked why, and he explained, "He's an honest guy. Most men are too stupid to be corrupt, he's just too honest. He'll be good for Fiji, you need a cyclone to come along every so often and clear away the rubbish. This is it, cyclone Frank," he laughed.

Speaking of Qarase and the government, Navi said, "They went too far. Too greedy. Didn't care about the people. They stopped listening to what I was trying to tell them, they forgot who put them there. "

This was a staggering admission by a man who had been the power behind the throne for more than 20 years. Navi knew when the game was almost up.

The Names List
See below From Affidavits of Shane Stevens and George Speight.....BAINIMARAMA IS NOT ONLY A TRAITOR BUT A DOUBLE TRAITOR.....lets stop the red herring list b shit and hang the real criminal Bainimarama.....Time to release Speight to tell the truth:

CAPTAIN Shane Stevens account of reasons behind the mutiny and his views on Bainimaramas conduct in 2000:

When GS (George Speight) and the CRW (Counter Revolutionary Warfare) conducted the coup on 19th May, 2000, the CRW unit was led by Lt Penaia Baleinamau who after a few days and under the direct orders of Cmdr. Voreqe Bainimarama, supplied logistical support for all CRW security operations inside the parliament complex, including those around the detained MPs. For example, daily reports were relayed to CL JB in operations; all hot rations were delivered directly from QEB at meal times into parliament for the CRW and the other FMF soldiers there. Extra arms and ordinances were transported in under Police escort from QEB. All soldiers were transported in on shift rotation and all pays carried on unhindered. Insofar as everyone was concerned, Cmdr. VB and his command were always in daily contact with GS and aware of the situation in the parliament complex. At times, GS was transported to brief Cmdr. VB and officers up at QEB officers mess on the progress and direction of the coup and VB even directed officers to support the coup.

This continued until the events of 29th May, 2000 when without the knowledge of GS, the President, Ratu Mara was forcefully removed by a group of senior ex and serving military personnel, including Cmdr. Bainimarama at Dakuibeqa. Cmdr. Bainimarama then proceeded to abrogate the constitution, pronounce himself head of state and duly appointed Ratu Epeli Nailatikau as his PM. That evening a military delegation of acting CMD CL Tuatoka, Lt Cl Etueni Caucau and led by Cl Filipo Tarakinikini entered the parliament complex to present to GS and his group a kamunaga from Cmdr. VB. They conveyed what he had done at Dakuibeqa and specifically that he was in agreement with the coup objectives of GS and later in the speech requested that GS hand over control of the coup to him (VB). He gave his assurances to GS that the objectives of the coup would be fulfilled and the I taukei will be happy.

2. I will ensure that all brothels will be banned . Our females will no longer be degraded . I will challenge fiji women's rights to ensure that they save our girls from this .

3. I will open way for more interest free loans up to $30000 to any itaukei .. To start a business , run by an indian ... And managed by Fijian affairs board .. To promote Fijian entrepreneurship . Indian will be remunerated for his efforts ... Fair play .

4. I will undertake to get rid of every squatter settlement in Fiji ... No more .. Our people don't deserve that ... Who will fund cost ? Corporate taxes will be increased to 25% for 5 years , a monopoly tax will be introduced ...10% flat for any business in Fiji that has no significant competition ... If other similar businesses will be opened we will offer such businesses tax concessions : result ; more jobs ... Better housing for our people .

5. A cultural class to be introduced in every school : reason ; we need racial tolerance .

6. A reconciliation day will be named : efforts to promote a peace loving Fiji .

The regime somehow got not authorised information that due to Filipino troop Fijian troop got caught by the insurgents. What a joke, they not admitting that the poorly trained and unfit soldiers could not defend themselves and the task that were assigned to them.

Bainimarama and Tikoitoga fear Rabuka. That is why they are ranting. Remember in 2000 during the CRW rebellion? When the cassava stems could not bar Bainimarama from breaking his sprint record? What he feared most at that time too was when Rabuka was wearing his Major General uniform as opposed to Bainimarama's Rear Admiral insignia and Tikoitoga's Brigadier's Crown's and Pips.
Bainimarama still wants Rabuka's blood for that incident and would do anything to punish him.

All these three are bastards that has ruined a very prosperous country. Just only to benefit themselves, these bastards will rot in hell and will have very painful death. These bastards should go and see first hand how ordinary Fijians are suffering

"While Ro Teimumu’s thoughts were all for the families of the 45, our self-appointed PM descended to the gutter to attack SODELPA. He accused SODELPA of targeting the Constitution to remove the immunity section at a time when the RFMF and the nation was facing a crisis in the Golan Heights. He was, in effect, trying to make political hostages of the 45 for his own selfish purposes. The contrast could not be greater between someone called to the highest values of leadership and a cheap thug out to hang on to power he obtained illegally. The chief beneficiary of immunity is him. His crimes dwarf all others but he corrals the rest of the RFMF to join him as if they are all equally guilty."

Al-Nusra Front threatens to try UN Fijian peacekeepers

Al-Qaeda affiliate says troops captured on Syrian Golan Heights will face trial according to Sharia law unless demands are met

AND Thickatoga wants to send more troops?

These troops are trained for general infantry not terrorists. Had they known that they would be facing execution they may not have surrendered. Why didn't they know> Why were they not properly trained. This is not like the peacekeeping that Frank did years ago. This is a different world.

The blood will be on Bainimarama's hands. It will not wash off easily. The soldiers if Fiji will hold Frank responsible. This is negligence in the extreme.

WHAT WE'VE BEEN DREADING...

The 45 UN peacekeepers from Fiji who were abducted by Al Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front rebel forces on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights last Wednesday are to "stand trial" under sharia (Islamic law), according to a Britain-based monitoring group.

Rami Abdul Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said that the commander of Al-Nusra Front has declared that the 45 peacekeepers will be tried under "divine law," according to Asharq Al-Aswat as cited by Yedioth Aharonoth.

It was revealed on Monday that the rebels issued three demands for the release of the peacekeepers: to be taken off the UN terrorist list, delivery of humanitarian aid to parts of the Syrian capital Damascus, and compensation for three of its fighters it says were killed in a shootout with UN officers.

In response, the 15 members of the UN Security Council on Wednesday demanded the "immediate and unconditional release" of the Fijians, denouncing their abduction "in the strongest terms."

The statement added that "there can never be any justification for attacks on or the detention of UN peacekeepers." Fiji has issued a similar statement calling for the release of its soldiers.

In addition to the 45 Fijian troops, 72 Filipino troops were surrounded by the rebel forces; however, the two units of soldiers from the Philippines managed to escaped over the weekend into Israel.

The Fijians and Filipinos are part of the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) established in 1974 to maintain the ceasefire between Syria and Israel forces in the Golan, and oversee the implementation of a disengagement agreement.

The Israeli-Syrian border has been growing increasingly tense, as fighting between Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces and rebel forces has occasionally spilled over.
