Go ahead, just means more room available for 1.5 billion Muslims, and a few right wing nutjobs like me.

I'd like a comprehensive list of the hotels so I can book comfortably knowing I won't have to share the breakfast buffet with some nagging liberal.

It is good to know people like him and Roger Waters still exist in this sad world.

Why would anyone even visit Brunei?

Ask these Japanese companies operating in Brunei:

Mitsubishi Corporation.

Mitsubishi Gas Chemical Company INC.

Brunei Methanol Company Sdn. Bhd.

Tobishima Corporation.

Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation.

Tokio Marine Insurance Co. Ltd.

Hana Soy & World (B) Sdn. Bhd.

Naturally Plus Brunei.

Brunei's ruling royals possess a huge private fortune and its largely ethnic-Malay population enjoy generous state handouts and pay no taxes.

The Sultan introduced a tough Islamic penal code nearly five years ago which it said would be introduced over a period of several years.

Under the new laws, theft will be punished by the amputation of a hand for a first offence and the amputation of a foot for a second offence.

When he announced the move, the Sultan, 72, one of the world's wealthiest men, called the code "a part of the great history of our nation".

Watch out for the devil in disguise reverting to torture to enforce his laws by evil medieval unjustifiable means. Sultan, yeah right, one of vice and corruption and condoning unbelievable cruelty. Stay away from this place Brunei, remember this name, support George Clooney's call.

What the UN says about Brunei's latest Gay law?

Obviously, the UN was bias organization. The UN Secretary General's mouth was shut because the Brunei ruler was wealthiest monarch in the world. The OIC should denounce uncivilized punishment to gay people in Brunei.

It's what you will punish if you're living under Sharia Law. Good on you George. George Clooney is a Sunni Muslim? I believe he converted to Islam when he married to Amal Alamuddin.
