austronesian is going to lose..

Chinese people discovered the shoal many centuries ago and that there is a long history of Chinese fishing activity in the area. The shoal lies within the nine-dotted line drawn by China on maps marking its ownership to around two-thirds of the total area of the South China Sea islands.

An article published states that Chinese astronomer Guo Shoujing went to the island in 1279, under the Yuan dynasty, as part of an empire-wide survey called "Measurement of the Four Seas"

historical geographer Han Zhenhua () was among the first scholars to claim that the point called "Nanhai" (literally, "South Sea") in that astronomical survey referred to Scarborough Shoal

The Scarborough Shoal is not included within the territorial lines defined in the Treaty of Paris (1898),[34] Treaty of Washington (1900),[35] Convention Between the United States and Great Britain (1930),[36] 1935 Constitution of the Philippines,[37] Republic Act No. 3046 "Act to Define the Baselines of the Territorial Sea of the Philippines"(1961),[38] or the 1987 Constitution of the Philippines

so under international law, the philippines does not own scarbo, kalayaan..

Filipino says Huangyan Island belongs to China

2012-05-04 13:36 Ecns

In an article published late last month by the Manila Standard Today, a retired Filipino banker and economist said that Huangyan Island, a disputed territory located in the South China Sea, has historically belonged to China and that the Philippine government is "fooling" people.

According to the article, "The Scarborough Shoal does belong to China, which discovered and mapped it as early as 1279 during the Yuan Dynasty. Chinese fishermen, from both the Mainland and Taiwan, have since used it. As a matter of fact, Guo Shoujing (the Chinese astronomer, engineer and mathematician who worked under Mongol ruler Kublai Khan) performed surveys of the South China Sea, and the surveying point was the Scarborough Shoal, which is considered part of the Zhongsha Islands (renamed Huangyan Island in 1983)."

"All official maps published by the Philippines until the 1990s excluded both the Spratlys and the Scarborough Shoal from its territorial boundaries.

Our own Republic Act No. 3046, passed by our Congress and approved in 1961, stopped us from our claim. Yet, we had the temerity to amend this law on March 10, 2009, after 48 long years, to unilaterally include the disputed territories."

the Philippines has no rights to claim the territorial sovereignty of Huangyan Island.

First, Huangyan Island is outside the territory of Philippines.

The Philippine territory was determined by a series of international treaties and no treaty had stated that the Huangyan Island belongs to the Philippines.

The "Treaty of Paris between Spain and the United States" in 1898, the "Treaty of Washington between Spain and the United States" in 1900 and the "Anglo-American Treaty" in 1930 (called the "three Treaties" for short) had clearly defined that 118 degrees East longitude is the western limit of Philippine territory. The Huangyan Island is outside it.

The Philippine Constitution in 1935, the US-Philippine General Relations Treaty in 1947, the Philippine-US Military Alliance Treaty in 1952, the Act 3046 set by Philippines about its territorial sea baseline on June 17, 1961 and the amendment of the territorial sea baseline by Philippines in 1968 successively reaffirmed the legal validity of the "three Treaties" and explicitly recognized that the territory of Philippines does not include the Huangyan Island.

The maps published by the Philippines in 1981 and 1984 also did not incorporate Huangyan Island. The above facts have fully proved that the Huangyan Island is outside the scope of Philippine territory and does not belong to the Philippines.

First of ALL the AUSTRONESIANS NAVIGATED the South China Sea THOUSANDS OF YEARS BEFORE THE CHINESE DID. The Chinese were "LATE NAVIGATORS" to the South China Sea according to HISTORY RECOGNIZED WORLDWIDE.

The Ancient name of S. China Sea was the SEA OF CHAM or the CHAM Sea named after the AUSTRONESIAN Kingdom of Champa that once ruled Most Vietnam, parts of Cambodia and Thailand.

1279 is SO SO SO recent,THE WORLD DID NOT BEGIN IN 1279, common sense please! The Austronesians NAVIGATED the South China THOUSANDS OF YEARS AGO.

The 1279 surveying point mentioned in Guo Shoujing's (chinese astronomer) work was actually a place along the coast of central Vietnam NOT the Scarborough shoal.(p.202 of Guo Shoujing pingzhuan, Nanjing University Press, 2003).

1279 is so RECENT! The Chinese WERE LATE COMERS TO THE SOUTH CHINA SEA.

THE ANCIENT NAME OF SOUTH CHINA SEA WAS NOT "South China Sea"
Ancient world referred to it as the CHAM SEA.

The sea was known to the 10th-century Arab traveler and geographer al-Masudi AS THE CHAM SEA.

This was in recognition of the fact that at the time, and for another 400 years, the principal seafarers and merchants in the region were from Champa, the Malay (in its broadest sense)-speaking, Hindu-worshipping nation based on the central Vietnam coast.

Again the Austronesian Heritage is supported by Anthropological, Archaeological, Genetic and Linguistic findings backed by MODERN SCIENCE!

An Article from YALE UNIVERSITY

LINK: http://yaleglobal.yale.edu/content/chinese-hi...

As for claims to the South China Sea and its islands (referring to China) based on visits by fishermen ignore the fact that commerce in that sea, and into and across the Indian Ocean was run by Malay vessels and crews hundreds of years before Chinese mariners and merchants ventured far from their coast. Chinese Buddhist pilgrims to Sri Lanka went on Malay boats via Java or Sumatra. Nearly two thousand years ago Roman merchants brought spice island products from southern India whence they had been brought by Malay and Indian sailors. At much the same time, Malays with 20-meter ships with outriggers were crossing the southern part of the Indian Ocean, settling the huge island of Madagascar and leaving marks in Africa. Even today, after migration from Africa, Arabia and India, Madagascar’s human gene pool is 50 percent Austronesian and its language 80 percent.
The modern states that are the successors of those seafaring, migrant and trading Malays lack – unlike the Chinese – the written records to show their history. Nor is there much local elite awareness in those nations of their histories prior to the arrival of Islam and, very soon afterwards, of European traders and imperialists. But advances in archaeology, in genetics and other sciences which can make up for gaps in written history, are beginning to make the broad Malay world better aware of its past and of its right both to contest Chinese claims and resist further Han expansion into Southeast Asia.

------

“The seafaring history of the region at least for the first millennium of the current era was dominated by the ancestors of today's Indonesians, Malaysians, Filipinos and (less directly) Vietnamese (Austronesian Chams).” This statement at least is supported by current historical and anthropological knowledge.(Victor T. King,“Ethnolinguistic Groups of Southeast Asia,” in Southeast Asia: A Historical Encyclopedia, from Angkor Wat to East Timor, ed. Ooi Keat Gin, pp. 492-498, Santa Barbara, California: ABC-CLIO, Inc., 2004).

Kublai Khan (MONGOL EMPIRE) was Mongol and was NOT a CHINESE.

Why is CHINA claiming the islands? If any, MONGOLIA should be the one claiming them lol

Chinese people only immigrated to TAIWAN during the 16th Century, also 1279 is SO RECENT! C'mon common Sense! The world did not exist in 1279 lol.

According to OLD CHINESE MAPS, CHINA did not OWN SCARBOROUGH (SEE MAPS I POSTED ON MY PREVIOUS POST)

AND

According to EUROPEAN MAPS, the Philippines OWNED Scarborough SHOAL BEFORE and AFTER The TREATY of PARIS was signed (SEE MAPS I POSTED ON MY PREVIOUS POST)

Where in the TREATY OF PARIS SAY THAT SPAIN IS GIVING SCARBOROUGH TO CHINA?

No where! lol

The TREATY OF PARIS OVERLAPS WITH CHINA'S 9 DASH CLAIM, ALSO IT OVERLAPS WITH CHINA AND TAIWAN'S EEZ.

So if you say the TREATY OF PARIS IS LEGAL, THEN your 9 dash claim is ILLEGAL because it overlaps with the treaty of paris?

The treaty of paris is of no consequences.

The Philippines is NOT BASING its claim on the TREATY of PARIS.

The Philippine' CLAIM IS BASED ON INTERNATIONAL LAWS WHICH ARE: EFFECTIVE EXERCISE OF JURISDICTION AND UNCLOS

Palmas Island (now part of Indonesia) was included in the TREATY OF PARIS, BUT THE INTERNATIONAL COURT FAVORED THE NETHERLANDS because it demonstrated EFFECTIVE EXERCISE OF JURISDICTION. Indeed, in that particular case, sovereignty over the Palmas Island was adjudged in favor of the Netherlands on the basis of "effective exercise of jurisdiction'' although the said island may have been historically discovered by Spain and historically ceded to the US in the Treaty of Paris.

Examples of International Court Cases favoring EFFECTIVE JURISDICTION

1. The Minquiers and Ecrehos Case (France/United Kingdom)

France claimed sovereignty because they fished in the waters and their historic sovereignty over the area going back to the Duchy of Normandy in the eleventh Century

But the International Court favored the United Kingdom because of EFFECTIVE JURISDICTION.

Initially requested on 5 December 1951, the ICJ decided on 17 November 1953 that sovereignty over the islands belonged to the United Kingdom

http://www.icj-cij.org/docket/index.php...

--

2. Examples of International Court Cases favoring EFFECTIVE JURISDICTION

Clipperton Island (Mexico-France), arbitration (decided 1931)

In the Clipperton Island case, Mexico argued that Clipperton island was the same known by Spain as Passion Island, Medano or Medanos Island, that the Spanish Navy had been DISCOVERED BEFORE the French Navy discovered it in 1711. However, the tribunal found that Mexico had FAILED to prove that “Spain not only had the right, as a state, to incorporate the island in her possessions, but also had effectively exercised the right” and failed to show any manifestation of sovereignty over the island.

SPAIN first discovered the ISLAND

BUT

FRANCE MAINTAINED

Effective Jurisdiction of the Island

So the International Court awarded it to FRANCE

http://cil.nus.edu.sg/wp/wp-content/uploads/2...

--

Examples of International Court Cases favoring EFFECTIVE JURISDICTION

3. Ligitan and Sipadan Islands (Indonesia - Malaysia)

In 1999 Indonesia and Malaysia took their dispute over the sovereignty of Ligitan and Sipadan islands off the coast of East Kalimantan province to the International Court of Justice (ICJ). The ICJ ruled in favor of Malaysia on 17 December 2002. Although neither side convinced the Court that it had clear title to the islands, Malaysia was awarded both islands based, in part, on its continuous administration of the islands. Malaysia did show to the ICJ “manifestations of state authority” over the islands, mainly in the 1930s while under British rule. Indonesia had not protested Malaysia’s actions until 1969.

In the case of Scarborough shoal and the Spraltys, the Philippines has exercised both effective occupation and effective jurisdiction.

1. THE PHILIPPINES has ARRESTED A LOT OF ILLEGAL CHINESE, VIETNAMESE, AND TAIWANESE FISHERMEN IN SCARBOROUGH SHOAL WITHOUT ANY PROTEST FROM CHINA, VIETNAM OR TAIWAN (WELL DOCUMENTED). CHINA PROTESTED JUST RECENTLY.

2. The Philippine Supreme Court decided a case involving a shipwreck there and NOT CHINA. The shipwreck predates China’s 1935 claim.

3. THE PHILIPPINE NAVY AND COASTGUARD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PATROLLING THE SHOAL.

4. Scarborough Shoal was also used as an impact range by Philippine and U.S. Naval Forces stationed in Subic Bay in Zambales for defense purposes.

FACT: CHINA NEVER PROTESTED.

5. The Phil. has also been conducting scientific, topographic, and marine studies in the disputed shoal.

6. Filipino fishermen have been fishing in the disputed area since prehistory

7. Philippine Flag on Scarborough Shoal
