#BillClinton supported #AlQaeda in #Bosnia and #Kosovo in the 1990s as confirmed by #RPC Congressional documents;  #HillaryClinton has supported #AlQaeda and the #IslamicState (ISIS-Daesh) in #Syria.
This article was first published in 2002.…
Known and documented, since the #SovietAfghanWar, recruiting #Mujahideen (“holy warriors”) to fight covert wars on #Washington’s behest has become an integral part of #US foreign policy.
A 1997 Congressional document by the #RPC, while intent upon smearing President #BillClinton, nonetheless sheds light on the Clinton administration’s insidious role in recruiting and training jihadist mercenaries with a view to transforming #Bosnia into  a “Militant Islamic Base”

#FullText of Press Statement by @SecPompeo @StateDept, “U.S. Position on #Maritime Claims in the #SouthChinaSea,” 13 July 2020:

"Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the #SouthChinaSea. We are making clear: #Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them."
"In the #SouthChinaSea, we seek to preserve peace and stability, uphold #freedom of the #seas in a manner consistent with international #law, maintain the unimpeded flow of #commerce, and oppose any attempt to use coercion or force to settle disputes."

It’s been great seeing a lot of tweets discussing racism in #Brunei & I’ve been thinking a lot about my experience with racism — whether I’ve been on the receiving end or I’ve been racist myself/used race to demean others in the past.
Racism in Brunei does not surprise me & it shouldn’t surprise anyone. Just look at our national philosophy that has not been changed for the past 36 years to be more inclusive despite the multitude of races & religions that now identify as “Bruneian”.
Any brown Bruneian will tell you they’ve been called “kaling” at least once in their lifetime & I am no exception. You’ll tell me “That’s horrible” & you’re sorry it happened but when was the last time you corrected someone who said kedai kaling instead of kedai runcit?

The #IMF says the "Great Lockdown" recession will likely be the worst since the Great Depression. Global economy projected to shrink by 3% in 2020. By contrast, in January, the IMF had forecast a global GDP expansion of 3.3% for this year. Details in chart below. Table: @IMFNews
IMF: Partial global rebound to 5.8% in 2021 “assumes the #pandemic fades in the 2nd half of 2020, & that policy actions taken by countries are effective in preventing widespread firm bankruptcies, extended job losses, & system-wide financial strains.” #WEO

Ok I decided to try post some #itjobs from Job Centre Brunei. Consider this experimental and no guarantee I'll post these in a timely manner, as monitoring this is done manually (there is no RSS feed boooo)

Grateful for our subsidised healthcare in #Brunei but, after experiencing 2 nights stay at #RIPAS, there is still a lot that needs to be improved. Backstory: Been experiencing chest discomfort since last week which has been lingering for few days.
Decided to get it checked out at a private clinic since I didn’t feel like I was in pain / require urgent care. Clinic advised to get a “ECG stress test” done (running on treadmill) instead of the regular ECG which set me back $180.
Felt hesitant but thought since I’m here, might as well find out if there is something wrong with my heart. Upon completion, the clinic dr said my reading is off and would require “further checking” which can only be done at RIPAS. Got a referral letter to A&E. Cue the panic.

How come a post like this still exist in our society today #Brunei? Titled "Dream Wedding", the message that comes with it isn't something anyone should be making fun of, not just in defense of women but also what message it brings of Muslim men today. It is embarrassing to see.
And it's worse when they use Firman as their defense. This is not what the Firman means and a complete misuse of the teachings of Islam. This group Kern Hani obviously needs to be taught of not just how society works today but also understanding what it means to be a Muslim.
Really #Brunei? Really?

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)

@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”)--
