The headline below appeared on 15th September 2014 across the internet like a heat rash.

Below we see flag waving men climbing over an upturned MiG 21, with the caption “Islamic State fighters celebrate after taking down a Syrian fighter jet.

….really.

The popular news blog New York Post ran the story with the picture. The same story headline was run by nydailynews.com who omitted the picture, dailynewsen also ran the story with the picture as did a myriad of linked media news outlets and blogs, which can be discovered by simply using the headline in an internet search engine.

However if you take a closer look you can notice the weathering and the lack of any obvious damage. Generally when a jet aeroplane is shot down it does n’t remain in such pristine condition.

It was by a chance searching near Raqqah that I found where that MiG actually was. A static display, the concrete pylons can still be seen.

The picture below shows the area and the google maps upload image. The road number 4 runs along the south side of the Euphrates River, the intersection can be easily found near Al Tabqah.

Leaked Document Shows Bahrain Gov’t Planning to Stockpile More Tear Gas Canisters Than People in Country

BahrainWatch:

Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior is planning to import 1.6 million tear gas canisters and 90,000 tear gas grenades, according to a leaked document, published today by research and advocacy group Bahrain Watch.  The document — apparently a tender issued by the Ministry of Interior’s Purchasing Directorate — shows that Bahrain’s security forces are stockpiling massive amounts of tear gas, despite serious concerns of international NGOs and the United Nations Human Rights Council.  These groups have called Bahrain’s use of tear gas “unnecessary and indiscriminate”, and “lethal”.  This planned new shipment will supply Bahrain with more tear gas canisters than the entire population of the country.

Bahrain Watch understands that no shipment related to this tender has yet been made, however, such a shipment could begin at any time, given the date of the tender.

Bahrain has historically used US-origin tear gas, but the State Department apparently blocked further US exports over concerns about its “excessive use” in May 2012.  Bahrain Watch believes that one of the firms that seem to be supplying Bahrain currently may be planning the shipment:

  1. Rheinmetall Denel Munitions – a German/South African company. Tear gas made by this company has been seen in Bahrain since 2011. The canister that killed 14-year old Ali Jawad al-Sheikh on 31st August 2011 is visually similar to thosemanufactured by Rheinmetall Denel.

  1. DaeKwang Chemical Company Ltd and Korea C.N.O. Tech Ltd – two South Korean firms. Unmarked tear gas canisters, as well as tear gas grenades, which are visually identical to those originally manufactured by DaeKwang and exported by C.N.O. Tech have been seen in Bahrain since late 2011. The canister that killed 15-year old Sayed Hashim Sayed Saeed on 31st December 2011 looks visually identical to those manufactured by DaeKwang.

In order to stop any further shipments of tear gas, Bahrain Watch is launching a campaign entitled “Stop The Shipment” (http://stoptheshipment.org/), and @StopTheShipment on Twitter.  The campaign invites participants to send complaint messages via e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook to Bahrain’s tear gas suppliers, as well as export licensing authorities in these countries.  With enough public and media pressure the campaign could result in export licenses being revoked, and shipments being blocked similar to what has happened previously with US-made tear gas products.

Greetings World,

We are Anonymous. And we have watched since the last Grand Prix F1 race in Manama, Bahrain. Since last year, we have had millions of eyes trained on the continuing oppression of our freedom loving brethren in Bahrain by the self-made “King” in Manama.

Since last year, when Anonymous in solidarity with hundreds of thousands of Bahraini – shut down the Grand Prix F1 race and said “no” to blood racing. One year since Anonymous dumped the personal information including credit card and passport numbers, of all the F1 attendees in Bahrain – and yet Bernnie Eccelstone and the “Royal Family” of Bahrain have learned nothing. So we are coming forward this year to wreck your little party again Mr. Eccelstone. Anonymous will not stand by and allow you a race fueled by the blood of our freedom loving comrades in Bahrain.

Beginning with the opening festivities of your little blood race, you can expect the presence of Anons from all over the globe inside your intertoobz. We will remove you from the world wide web, whether you be Grand Prix or Bahrain government – we shall take it all down. We will expose the personal data of any person who supports this race in any way. You have been warned. Once the festivities for this race begin in Bahrain, all bets are off. We call upon Bernie Eccelstone while there is still time; cancel your blood race now.

We Are Anonymous
We Are Everywhere
We Are Legion
We Do Not Forgive
We Do Not Forget
Bernie Eccelstone & Bahrain Royal Family, it’s too late to…
Expect US!

Bahrain bans ‘Anonymous’ Guy Fawkes mask

In Bahrain, Bahrain, News, OpBahrain on February 26, 2013 at 11:36 AM

The Guy Fawkes mask – which has come to represent a universal symbol of protest – has been banned in Bahrain. The move is the latest in a series of measures implemented by the Gulf state to quell a two-year pro-democracy uprising.

A ban on orders of the mask – which was popularized by the 2005 Hollywood adaption of the comic book ‘V for Vendetta’ – has been ordered by the Gulf kingdom’s Industry and Commerce Minister, Hassan Fakhro.

The decision was carried out following a request by the country’s Interior Ministry, which said the move was in the “public interest,” Bahrain’s Official Gazette reports.

The ministry has instructed the country’s border and port authorities to prevent the masks from being imported, and anyone attempting to circumvent the ban could potentially be arrested.

The measure has been interpreted as an attempt to eliminate a potent symbol against the monarchy’s rule. And to deprive anti-government demonstrators of a means of masking their identity.

From the ‘Occupy’ movement in America to Arab Spring uprisings in neighboring states, the mask has become what the comic’s illustrator David Lloyd described as a “placard to use in protest against tyranny.”

Bahrain is now the second Gulf country to ban the use of the infamous Guy Fawkes visage – the UAE issued a warning proscribing the wearing of the mask on National Day, December 2.

Bahrain, a country where over 75 percent of the country is Shia, is ruled by a Sunni monarchy.In February 2011, thousands of protesters swamped the streets of Bahrain’s capital Manama, demanding democratic reforms and the resignation of Prime Minister Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa.Since the start of the uprising, at least 82 protesters have been killed, including nine children.

Bahrain Police Disperse Funeral Procession with Tear Gas, Stun Grenades

In Bahrain, Bahrain, News, OpBahrain, World Revolution on February 16, 2013 at 11:12 PM

Violent clashes broke out in Bahrain at the funeral of a teenager killed in protests marking the anniversary of the revolt of the Shiite majority against the ruling monarchy. The procession was blocked and dispersed with stun grenades and tear gas.

­Scuffles erupted after armed security forces blocked access to Hussein al-Jaziri’s funeral in the village of Daih on Saturday. The authorities used stun grenades and tear gas to push out those who came to pay their respects.

Thousands of people attended the funeral after which the crowd of protesters marched on “Pearl Square” in Manama, the center point of the 2011 uprising.

Several people sustained injuries when police fired tear gas to disperse them, local witnesses report.

In the village of Sanabis west of the capital, local witnesses reported police using force to disperse a crowd hurling rocks and petrol bombs. Police fired tear gas during clashes with the protests.

Saturday’s events are the latest in a series of tussles between Shiite protesters and the authorities since Thursday, when the country’s opposition marked the second anniversary of revolt in the small island nation hosting the US fifth fleet.

The violence escalated following the death of a teenager on Thursday who was shot by security forces during protests against the kingdom’s rulers. One policeman was also killed in that clash.

Although Thursday’s march had been authorized, Bahrain’s information minister Samira Rajab told RT that the killed teenager, along with a group of provocators, were in a forbidden zone “heading towards the police” with Molotov cocktails in their hands.

Two police officers had been placed in “preventive detention” in connection with this week’s events.

On Friday violence erupted after a crowd blocked a highway linking a number of Shiite villages to the capital.

Earlier authorities announced the arrest of four people in an overnight assault on law enforcement that wounded four policemen.

Bahrain’s two-year struggle has taken an estimated 80 lives, with torture and illegal detention allegations also brought against the regime by human right advocates.

On February 10 the Sunni dominated government started talks with Shiite opposition in order to fulfill oppositions’ demands for democratic reforms.
