The Basilan Initiative: How can we make them choose development over conflict?

Any ideas on how we can finally convince our Muslim brothers in Basilan to choose peace and development over uncertainty and armed conflict?

Indiana Jones? Nope. This is just one of the many unpublished attractions of Basilan.

With then Congressman Gerry Salapuddin at a rubber plantation in Basilan. We went on a famtrip prior to drafting an economic development plan for the province called "The Basilan Initiative". Our team to Basilan included 3 doctors (2 Phds and 1 MD) :)

When in Rome do as the Romans do" as the saying goes. So, when in Basilan ... do as the Basilenos do. This is Marlboro country.
