The United States Department of State issued a travel warning on June 16, 2007. Notice the avoidance of any mention of Muslim or Islamic.
As any sane person would expect, appeasing the militant Muslims in the Philippines hasn't gone very well. From this source:
...The government has been talking with Muslim rebels to end nearly 40 years of conflict that has killed more than 120,000 people and displaced 2 million in the south of the mainly Roman Catholic country.
Talks over the size and wealth of a proposed Muslim homeland have been stalled since September 2006 although backroom negotiations continued, resulting in a breakthrough in December when Manila agreed to grant Muslims the right of self-determination....
Appeasement never works, morons!
