America as a former colonizer, has a great influence to the development of the Filipino nation. Americans make significant changes to the Philippines. Education system and democracy is built, English became the national public administration system was created and the various transformations "American way" more developed to the Filipino people. However, according to Constantino (1974), an education system that taught by the U.S. is "mis-education" for the Filipino nation. American education makes de-Philippines for the younger generation. They put the culture, values, the American lifestyle as a superior measure to be referred. The story of the triumph of heroic Americans and American institutions of excellence obsessed youth, put model "American society" as the ideal form for the life of the Filipino people. The end result, the Philippines became a friendly market for these products "Made in America".
The impact of this mis-education that might be a big problem for the Philippines today. Philippine progress becomes stagnant despite strong nation already has a variety of different potentials.
The issue of post-War Against Terrorism blaring events of 11 September 2001 and was followed by acts of terror in the areas of government and foreign institutions of the West, it brought also the name of Osama bin Laden as Al-Qaeda founder of suspected international terrorist networks. Besides the U.S. terrorism was prevalent in Southeast Asia, such as the Bali bombing tragedy which happened not long from 911 events in Washington DC, Rizal Day bombings in the Philippines December 30, 2000, as well as successive bombings in Indonesia. The series of terror events in Southeast Asia suspected the existence of terrorist networks in this region, given the incident occurred at moments when critical and strategic areas. But on the way Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore have shown its seriousness in combating such networks in Southeast Asia. However, the Philippines are the countries of destination of terrorism tend to be serious about it. While the Philippines is considered as the most strategic areas as a terrorist funeral.
The Philippines has experienced a prolonged conflict between the Philippine government with the Moro separatists. MNLF (Moro National Liberalization Front) which is a separatist organization in order to prepare the group stronger. Salamat Hashim had just returned from studies at Al Azhar makes this group branched, forming the MILF (Moro Islamic Liberalization Front) is more specific struggle of the Moro Islamic struggle to gain legitimacy independently without any intervention from the Philippine government.
The existence of an Islam-centric MILF facilitate such international terrorist network al-Qaeda and the JI (Jemaah Islamiyah) into it and spread the jihad ideology. Salamat Hashim recruit youths from Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore as well as from the Philippines itself. Factors that led the Philippines to place the terrorist network is easy because, first, since the 1990s is the youth education and training of JI as a military establishment that aims to establish an Islamic State of Indonesia. Second, the government of the Philippines is less effective in its efforts to subdue the movement of terrorists in the country, monitoring the flow of migrants and residents as well as the smuggling of weapons and funds that go through the southern Philippines which is also accessible from Malaysia. And the latter the presence of Moro separatists in the Philippines makes an easy target, because the separatist requires financial support and human resources from donors.
While the process of negotiation between the government and the MILF is not always achieved well, there's always one party who denies the contents of the agreement by attacking MILF camps owned or otherwise by attacking government offices. Conflict is actually the root cause of terrorism in an increasingly strong Moro, as well as some graduate education to the military era Soviet invasion of Afghanistan led to solidarity with other Muslim countries to send Muslim youths in providing military training camps in Afghanistan. Once the conflict is completed, the graduate is then utilized as an educator of young men who recently joined. Education provided in the form of military education by providing knowledge of weapons and bomb assembly.
Analysis, that the Islamic caliphate system of making a great man be a role model for them. How can a Hashim Salamat who has a big name can be a magnet to attract the youth to get into the group. The spread of the ideology is very easy to do, to do lectures at mosques can facilitate delivery to the militant ideology to cling to what it does, the fight in Allah's way and make jihad for the sake of death in the way of Allah SWT.
Besides the countries of Southeast Asia, particularly Indonesia and the Philippines are the countries of low economic level, and level of education that sad. So that it becomes a plus for the founders of the MILF and JI to exploit them for the sake of running a political mission.
