I’m far from a #Brunei expert/reporter (ping @ainbandial @tashny) but I’m seeing international media report the sultan’s announcement about the moratorium of the #deathpenalty as a “dramatic U-turn” and… that doesn’t seem quite right.
@ainbandial @tashny The truth is that #Brunei has been listed as "de facto abolitionist” when it comes to the #deathpenalty, which means that, while capital punishment is still in law, it hasn’t actually been practised (i.e. no executions) for at least 10 years.
@ainbandial @tashny While I find it interesting the sultan felt the need to come out and reiterate the moratorium—and do think that international pressure had something to do with it—calling it a “u-turn” obscures the fact that not carrying out executions isn’t a new thing, but long established.

La situation de #Brunei ne fait que mettre l’Occident face à ses contradictions concernant l’Islam. La charia qu’applique #Brunei n’est pas le propre d’une «frange extrémiste», c’est la Loi islamique reconnue à l’unanimité des musulmans dans les quatre écoles juridiques et autre.
Cette Charia fait l’objet de l’unanimité chez les musulmans, elle est inhérente au dogme islamique, soutenue par le Coran comme par les hadith. Les châtiments corporels, la condamnation de la déviance morale etc, c’est le fondement même du droit que chaque musulman doit accepter
Le plus surprenant, c’est que c’est le fondement des écoles sunnites qu’on essaie de faire passer comme « modérées », à l’instar du Malikisme (qui d’ailleurs est censé être la base du code pénal de nombre de pays musulmans aujourd’hui comme le Maroc, mais c’est un autre sujet)

On this episode of "being Muslim in 2019" I'm going to share another opportunity you have to stand up and make it clear that this stuff is not okay.
I'm sure you've heard about the latest news out of Brunei. And if you're like me, it was possibly the first time you heard 1/
About #Brunei existing in the first place. Here's the thing, like many religions, there are people and cultures who take what they want and use that to serve their purpose. A lot of times, LGBTQ (🙋🏽‍♀️) are the recipients of antiquated, ignorant, fearmongering hate laws 2/
It happens everywhere. Not every country goes to this appalling extreme, but even the US is still making anti-LGBTQ rulings that are really unnecessary, hateful, and frankly un-American. Where does Deepak Amin fit in, you might wonder? Well, Deepak is in a large group of 3/

@EricHolder has asked an important question:

#When was #America #ever #great?

I realize that there is a nearly unavoidable tendency to snort and spew one's coffee when they hear or read his question for the first time. But, honestly, isn't it worth the exercise to answer it?
So, @EricHolder, I'm going to do just that, and I'm going to ask my ragtag bag of followers and detractors to contribute as well.

I'm going to offer my evidence of moments of American greatness. And I'm going to ask those that read this thread to do the same.
But wait!

There's more!

I'm going to ask my detractors and antagonists (are you seeing this @fedupaton) to contribute as well, and will welcome from them both moments of greatness and moments of shame.

#Brunei #PSA Charity platforms [thread]
Where can you donate good clothing to?

You can send to:
- SMARTER Brunei
- Sukarelawan Tutong, Daerah Tutong

Other NGOs or government body do make calls for donations when there are fire or flooding victims, local and overseas.
Oh, you can also give to foreign labour workers. They would usually appreciate as they sometimes buy from garage sale.

Adakah Melayu itu pendatang?

Ini adalah untaian. Sila baca dengan tenang.

#Melayu #Malay #Sejarah #History #Malaysia #Indonesia #Brunei #thread
Tiap kali bila ada munculnya isu Hak Bumiputera entah kenapa salah satu perkara yang akan dipertikaikan ialah asal-usul orang Melayu itu sendiri dan sejarah mereka.
Tidak mengapa, di sini saya akan tulis sejarah ringkas mengenai asal-usul orang Melayu. Ini mungkin akan menjawab soalan sama ada "Melayu itu pendatang?" atau tidak.

For the record @Diplomat_APAC , Tiffany Teo is Singaporean not Bruneian. Although she was born in Brunei and lived here briefly as an expat, she identifies as Singaporean, and competes for Singapore, as is stated in @MarcusChhan’s stories for @thescoop_co
And idk where to begin w/ this shallow, misinformed interpretation of the state of women in Brunei. Maybe next time, idk, try talking to some actual Bruneian women. I guess we’re too busy being repressed to speak for ourselves, need other people to speak on our behalf. NO THANKS.
Bruneian women have been telling their stories for a long time, but if those stories aren’t published in western media, they don’t exist right?

Setiap kali timbul isu Israel dan Palestin, mesti anda akan nampak kumpulan pakcik-pakcik Yahudi berjanggut bertocang seperti ini membuat protes terhadap kekejaman Israel malah kewujudan Israel itu sendiri.
Yahudi ini adalah Yahudi Ortodoks yang terdiri daripada kumpulan Haredim dan Hasidim. Mereka adalah Yahudi yang konservatif dan kadang-kadang digelar sebagai Yahudi ortodoks ultra (“Ultra-Orthodox Jews”)--
