Flogging, chopping off limbs and stoning to death: Brunei brings in new rule of law.


Those who reject Allah and hinder (men) from the Path of Allah; their deeds will Allah render astray (from their mark).

… Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks; at length, when ye have thoroughly subdued them, bind a bond firmly (on them): thereafter (is the time for) either generosity or ransom: until the war lays down its burdens.

… But those who are slain in the way of Allah, He will never let their deeds be lost.

… That is because Allah is the Protector of those who believe, but those who reject Allah have no protector.

Quran, Sura  507:1:47

 

The Sultan of Brunei says he wants to set up a ‘firewall’ against globalisation. Globalization is a word used to indicate non-Muslim culture. He wants to ban any non-Muslim, non-sharia culture. Muslims always want one law for themselves and one for others. The Sultan is a notorious buyer of hookers who for many decades have been taken to Brunei to service him. Under his own Sharia he is suppose to be severely punished for this. But of course the Sultan ignores that he has already violated his Islam thousands of times. Its easier to target and bully the poor.

Brunei is now the next country to fall in line to appease the new Caliphate movement. All Salafi compliant. Malaysia has already agreed and installed Salafi rules and began to persecute Christians and other minorities. Indonesia has agreed to new Salafi regulations and began to persecute minorities and strip them of all rights. Turkey wants to follow suit with Erdogan in charge. Egypt wanted to fall in line with these Islamic ideals until it got interrupted by General al-Sisi. Syria is struggling not to lose their sovernity to Salafism, as if their backward country is not already bad as it is. Meanwhile the aggression to expand this is everywhere: Thailand, China, France, Russia, Netherlands, Sweden, Canada, USA, Australia, Myanmar/Burma, – you name it and the process is under way.

We have now seen one Muslim majority country after another adopting rigid Salafi rules. Muslims call this “a desire for democracy”. And this fake democracy is aided by our tax monies. Yesterday we reported that Obama has signed another $23b military contract with these evil, debased savages – the most evil cult on earth and in human history. Where is the sanity in this? Why doesn’t he just sign a billion dollar contract with the Mexican cartel? What would really be the difference?

And this pattern that we see of Islamic totalitarian takeover is exactly what they use again and again and how they do it. They have done this for centuries. Had the Western world not allowed Muslims to immigrate, this would not been happening. They feel their population is now so big and extensive in foreign countries, they are winning and there will be nothing these countries can do when they start their forced conversions.

Muslims take over a non-Muslim country after mass immigration and arguments that they are “marginalized”. With these arguments they get more and more rights. With the rights they get more stronghold which eventually leads to political influence. They then live a few years with the old rules until the time is right. This is then used as an argument that they are “secular”. Islam is never secular. Islam has never been secular for the past 1,400 years. Islam has never been peaceful to anyone for the past 1,400 years. Only a complete idiot is going to assume they will suddenly transform into a peaceful cult.

Concern as Brunei brings in system of Islamic law with punishments that include the dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death

The country’s ruler says sharia was created as guidance from Allah

Andrew Buncombe Author Biography

Saturday 29 March 2014, The Independent

The Sultan of Brunei, one of the world’s wealthiest rulers and a close ally of Britain, will this week oversee his country’s transition to a system of Islamic law with punishments that include flogging, the dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death.

The 67-year-old absolute monarch declared last year that he wanted to introduce a full sharia system in his oil-rich nation and warned critics who took to social media sites to complain that they could be prosecuted using the new laws.

The decision to introduce sharia and reintroduce the death penalty has been condemned by NGOs and legal rights campaigners, who say the new rules will breach international laws. It has also triggered alarm among some of Brunei’s non-Muslim communities, who will also be subject to some of the rulings.

The development could put pressure on Britain to rethink its close relationship with Brunei, a former colony. A British regiment based in the country – the last surviving UK regiment stationed in East Asia – is paid for entirely by the Sultan.

In a letter to Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) said it deplored the new rules, adding that, if implemented, they would lead to serious human rights violations. “Brunei has not implemented the death penalty for years, so it came as quite a surprise that the new law has reintroduced it,” said the ICJ’s Emerlynne Gil.

The Sultan of Brunei says he wants to set up a ‘firewall’ against globalisation

The Sultan of Brunei says he wants to set up a ‘firewall’ against globalisation. Brunei is two-thirds Muslim and has long implemented some sharia, mainly for civil matters such as marriage. But last year the Sultan, who is said to be worth £24bn and lives in a 1,788-room palace, announced a plan to introduce full Islamic law.

Offences include insulting the Prophet Mohamed, drinking alcohol, getting pregnant outside of marriage and “sodomy”. The latter will be punishable by stoning.

“It is because of our need that Allah the Almighty, in all his generosity, has created laws for us, so that we can utilise them to obtain justice,” the Sultan said at the time.

It is unclear precisely what is motivating the Sultan, who also serves as the country’s prime minister and assumed the throne in 1967. But in a speech in February to mark the country’s National Day holiday, he claimed the system of an absolute Islamic monarch acted as a “strong and effective firewall” against the challenges of globalisation. He referred specifically to the internet.

He claimed that there were those, both in and outside Brunei, which last year chaired the Association of South-East Asian Nations (Asean), who had been challenging his plans and who wanted to see “internal turmoil”. He added: “These parties, it seems, have attempted to mock the king, the Islamic scholars and sharia. They are using the new media, such as blogs, WhatsApp and so on, which are not just accessed by locals but also by those overseas.”

Jame’ Asr Hassanil Bolkiah mosque The speech by the Sultan – who for many years was involved in a high-profile legal battle with his brother, a playboy accused of misappropriating £9bn of government assets and who reportedly owned a yacht called Tits – has had the impact of silencing many who might publicly speak out against the move.

Yet there are concerns, especially among the minority communities. There are around 30,000 Filipino citizens in Brunei, many of them Catholic, and the Philippine ambassador to Brunei, Nestor Ochoa, recently held a meeting at which he warned his countrymen about the implications of the new laws.

Father Robert Leong, a Catholic priest in Brunei, said there were concerns that baptisms of newborn babies could breach the new rules, which prohibit the “propagation of religion other than Islam to a Muslim or a person having no religion”. He said that the law was being introduced in three phases, with the harshest punishments, including the death penalty, being phased in over two years from Tuesday. “There will be no baptisms. There is not a lot we can do about it. We will have to wait and see what happens,” he said.

Britain granted independence to Brunei in 1984, but has maintained a close relationship with the country. A 1,000-strong regiment of the British Army, the Royal Gurkha Rifles, has been located there since the late 1950s and in 1962 stepped in to quell a rebellion against the Sultan’s father. The regiment is paid for by the Sultan. The British Army also runs a jungle warfare training school in the small nation. A government spokesperson said: “Ministry of Defence discussions are ongoing with the Bruneian authorities to clarify any impact on UK forces.”

Royal Dutch Shell, an Anglo-Dutch multinational, also runs a major operation there as a joint venture with the Brunei government.

A briefing document published last year about defence and security opportunities in Brunei by the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills said Brunei invested “a significant proportion of the country’s wealth through the City of London”. It said the British Armed Forces garrison was a linchpin of  UK-Brunei relations.

“The Government’s goal is to retain a dominant position in these key areas, and to maximise our share of influence as Brunei diversifies its economy and puts increasing emphasis on regional partners like Asean and China,” it said. “As it does so, Brunei will also provide a UK-friendly window into the key growth area of South-east Asia.”

The Sultan has been married three times. He remains married to his first wife, but he divorced his second, a one-time airline stewardess, in 2003 after 21 years. He divorced his third wife, a former TV reporter, in 2010 after five years. Both ex-wives were stripped of their royal titles.

Stories of his wealth abound. It was reported that, while playing polo with Prince Charles on one occasion, he had his boots delivered by helicopter to the polo field.

The Brunei government did not respond to queries and the Brunei High Commission in London failed to answer questions from The IoS. However, earlier this year, Brunei’s most senior Muslim cleric claimed that those criticising the new rules did not understand them, according to a report in The Brunei Times.

Dr Ustaz Hj Awg Abdul Aziz Juned said in a lecture in London: “Not even a day after the law was announced, human rights groups on social media commented that the steps taken by the Brunei government to implement the law was out of date and not modern.”

Sharia explained

What is sharia?

Sharia is the Islamic legal system that derives from the Koran, the example of the life of the Prophet Mohamed and “fatwas”, which are the rulings of Islamic scholars.  Different schools of thought exist, resulting in different interpretations.

What does it cover?

While Western law confines itself predominantly to crime and civil matters, sharia is a guide to help Muslims understand how they should lead every aspect of their lives. This ranges from deciding whether to enter a bar with someone wanting to drink alcohol to the punishments for theft or for criticising the Koran. Its treatment of women is particularly controversial. Judgements have banned the holding of property once married, enabled beatings for insubordination, and required a husband’s consent to divorce.

Where is it used?

Mauritania, Sudan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Maldives, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Nigeria all apply sharia. Some states, including UAE, Jordan and Egypt, use some form of sharia in their judicial system.

  1. This is classic salafi, driven by a complacency preceded by oil wealth. Despotic in its nature, it has the foul stench of what has happened to Saudi Arabia. I guess money talks…until the oil runs out. I would guess the sultan is also suffering the early stages of dementia (just an educated guess), so he easily succumbs to his “advisors”. Its a pity we can’t just observe from a safe distance, to see a modern social experiment go horribly wrong. All those poor innocents who will be offered up as sacrificial examples of “this is what happens if you break the law…”.
    The greatest historic tragedy of all time was when the Jewess Zeynab bint Al-Harith failed in her well-intentioned attempt to poison that pedophile devil-worshipping murdering plunderer. How different the world could have been. Just one small event in history… think about that.
