Two contrasting events occurred yesterday – a plane fell from the skies over Syria and a leader of the main Bahraini opposition party was shot in the street. All the world’s media focused on the shooting down of an US F-4 phantom fighter plane with two Turkish airmen on board but not one mainstream media outlet spoke of the shooting of three peaceful protestors depicted in the YouTube video below.
The pilots were rescued from the sea. The leaders are wounded.
On the Paradigm Shift I interviewed a Bahraini refugee to Australian about these attacks to contrast how the US and Australian governments are dealing with these to events.
