Nur Misuari and the so-called Sulu Sultanate Claims on Sabah and Sarawak – Unfounded!


The Philippines Star reported that Nur Misuari has claimed that Sabah and Sarawak belongs to him and his clan (read here).

Misuari said he and his clan are the true owners of Sabah and the Malaysian state of Sarawak. He said history would bear out that Sabah and Sarawak were the original properties of his great, great grandfather.

This was picked up by the Borneo Post online (read here) and CM Taib has rubbished this in his retort (read here) saying Misuari is twisting history. And Taib is correct in this matter.

The so-called Sultan of Sulu claim to Sabah is now well known with the recent and still on-going invasion of Lahad Datu, Sabah. Again, this is frivolous and mischievous and has turned into vicious and terroristic.

Certainly, most Malaysians are not aware of the history of Sabah and Sarawak and such claims by the so-called Sultan of Sulu and Nur Misuari are giving Malaysians a lot to chew on. It may be prudent to share some historical facts here to debunk their claims as wild and without historical basis. Furthermore, for them to prove their claims will be impossible.

A Quick Borneo History

Sarawak had, at one point in time in history, been part of the Bruneian Empire. In 1485 under Sultan Bolkiah, this empire pinnacled in what was called the “Golden Age” and claimed to be a force within the Malay Archipelago. The Bruneian Empire covered the most part of Borneo all the way to Mindanao and everything in between.

More Trouble In Sabah? Scary if True


A news report by Manila Bulletin has given Malaysians an eye-opener if true.Their report (read here) talks of MNLF insurgents being trained by Malaysian military trainers coming back as part of the recent Sabah invasion group. It also revealed that while they were still in Malaysia for training that they have hidden a stash of arms provided by the then Libyan leader, Kol Gaddafi. What have our Government been doing behind our backs?

If the report is true, we can expect a long drawn guerrilla warfare in Sabah like what the MNLF did in southern Philippines for the past few decades.

Maybe, this is just rhetorics by MNLF to throw Malaysians off and full of nonsense. But the Government must come clean and clear on this if they were somehow involved.
