ISIS Posts Photo Of Bomb That Brought Down Russian Plane

Tyler Durden's picture

Moments ago, ISIS released the 12th issue of its magazine profiled here previously, which had a cover page with a clear enough title: "Just Terror"


But while it has the usual content full of pro-Jihad propaganda, some 66 pages of it, as well as numerous images to commemorate the martyrs for the ISIS cause, what was most stunning about this edition was ISIS admission of how it brought down the Russian airplane above Egypt's Sinai peninsula, which as even Russia admitted yesterday, was the result of an ISIS bomb.

On page 3, we find the following two photos: one shows what Dabiq alleges are passports belonging to the "dead crusaders obtained by mujahidin"...

... and more troubling, is the image of the IED used to bring down the Russian airliner: a bomb concealed in a can of Gold beer.

This corroborates what Russia FSB chief Aleksandr Bortnikov said: "traces of a foreign-made explosive substance" have been found.  "During the flight, a homemade device with the power of 1.5 kilograms of TNT was detonated."

And something else which is perhaps just as surprising: in the foreword to its magazine, ISIS says it had originally planned to bring down a plane "belonging to a nation in the American-led alliance" but changed its mind to blow up the Russian plane instead.

On “30 September 2015,” after years of supporting the Nusayr in the war against the Muslims of Sham, Russia decided to participate directly with its own air force in the war. It was a rash decision of arrogance from Russia, as if it held that its wars against the Muslims of al-Qawqz were not enough offence. And so after having discovered a way to compromise the security at the Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport and resolving to bring down a plane belonging to a nation in the American-led Western coalition against the Islamic State, the target was changed to a Russian plane. A bomb was smuggled onto the airplane, leading to the deaths of 219 Russians and 5 other crusaders only a month after Russia’s thoughtless decision.

For those curious about the authenticity of the photo, or to learn more about ISIS' propaganda, the complete latest edition of the magazine can be found here, and is reposted below.

Looks like a can of soda to me.   Regardless, I wouldn't believe anything that comes out of Rita Katz's Studio.

So if ISIS = CIA, then a US agency brought down a Russian civilian airliner, right?

To me this is cover for far more sophisticated weaponry that did the job.

NoDebt's picture

OK, so a bunch of Muzzies (who don't drink alcohol) used a beer can to contain the bomb.  Either that's incredible irony or I'm going to have to tell Langley they need to try harder.

All successful bombings are immediately followed by full disclosure.... I read it in War for Dummies

From p38.  "After you successfully maim, alter, incapacitate, or dispose of the enemy, we recommend you publish the step-by-step procedures taken, including any applicable pictures or drawings of the device used." /s

Schweppes Gold is pineapple soda pop, not beer.  But hey, why spoil the narrative.

Don't ruin a good story with the truth.

Terrorist:  Hey Langley, gate 4B right, American Airlines?


Langley:  Nah, The American people are waking up to us and our tactics.  Lets send a message to the Russians.


Terrorist:  Gotcha

If these  guys have been making IED's work under armoured vehicles for years now, they aren't going to have much problem pulling this just need a few friends who load or clean the planes, then all they do is play dumb.

The Russians recovered the suitcase containing the bomb very quickly, in the first few days. It was the only piece of luggage with evidence of burning. They have kept quiet about their investigations while the formal aircrash process was underway. I suspect they know a lot more about the actual bomb than they are letting on.

WTF? Wouldn't ISIS *want* this spread freely, or are we worried about them suing zerohedge?

Has the document been copyrighted by someone else, and thus cannot be shown? WTF is going on?

ISIS are worried it might negatively affect their planned IPO for 2016.

This has got to be a fucking joke right? Copyright? I mean, perhaps its for my own good that i cant see it.


What state would issue them a copyright? More importantly, what state would enforce that copyright?

To answer you question: The CIA publishes DABIQ. Very jealous of their copyrighted content.

Rest assured there is some marketing boy in mid-town Atlanta wondering that their soda market penetration isn't as deep as they thought it was, and pontificating whether it should have been a red can in that photo or not.

Doubtless there also is someone at a desk in Virginia saying "Schweppes? Are they the poster-child of capitalist culture? We shoulda used a things-go-better-with can"


HowdyDoody's picture

The document is avaiable at

Good old US

One of the articles in the magazine is called "Paradigm Shift Part II - by John Cantlie"

Paradigm Shift? Come on, the's straight out of Harvard Business School.

On behalf of all ZH readers, I would think to thank the CIA for the amount of effort they have put into this. The production values are truly wondertful. It is nice to see some of the money from the Afghan drug running put to good use.

And 'John Cantlie'? Stop taking the piss!

Let’s take a moment to think this whole situation over…

1) Before ISIS bombed the Russian airliner, Russia had been concentrating its airstrikes against anti-Assad “rebels” / Western regime change forces.

2) After the bombing and during the G20, the West pressured Russia to stop bombing the “rebels” and start bombing the people who brought down the airliner, ISIS.

Given that the “Western” intelligence services run both the “rebels” and ISIS, and looking at these two points, can you see the motive for the “Western” intelligence services ordering ISIS to blow up the Russian airliner? It was to draw Russia away from bombing the “rebels” and towards bombing ISIS.

Now that Russia is saying a “foreign-made” explosive substance brought down the plane, all that’s needed to justify a war is for the Russians to announce that…

1) the explosive was American-made, and

2) their intelligence services have uncovered a direct chain of command from the CIA to ISIS that ordered the attack.

Ergo, the US ordered the destruction of the Russian airliner. - source

 the West pressured Russia to stop bombing the “rebels”

Sources, links?

Louie the Dog's picture

''. Come on man, this ZH.

malek's picture

The only thing I'm seeing at your link is allegations that the Russians are intensifying their attacks on Western regime change forces.

I'm still missing the slightest hint at where the West pressured Russia to stop bombing the “rebels” as you originally posted (with "pressured" in past tense, as if successfully make the Russians do what the West wants)

Therefore I call B/S.

I'm tellin' ya, war these days is not head-to-head.  What you want, each and every time is either leverage or full-on regime change (with your puppet in charge, of course).

Its about winning the hearts and minds, not seeing who can blow up the most residential quarters.

Plausible deniability is key, and so are acts of (industrial) sabotage, or in this case, an attack that not only targets Russia, but specifically Russian tourism to Egypt.   You want to force the other side into a mistake, and one of those mistakes would be coming out to say "This was America!  It was the CIA, etc." because you damn well know Mossad and CIA would have a prepared response for that scenario "Russia wants war!  Look how crazy they are getting, in order to get it!"

This conflict will ultimately go head-to-head, either economically or militarily. It is necessary in order to bring in the BRICS-fronted NWO: And if the globalists are really trying to bring religious prophecy into the NWO transition, it will definitely go military at some point:

Trouble is, when the bombs start dropping and the mushroom clouds start forming PR coups don't mean shit.

I'm not sure our overlords are smart enugh to have figured that one out.

HowdyDoody's picture

Russia does not distinguish between terrorists in Syria. The actual non-nutjob opposition have been working with Russia from early on, providing targetting information. The west loves to muddy the issue by referring to ill-defined groups of people by different ill-defined names according to short term expediency.

A simple way to identify the Bad Guys - the US will object to Russia/Syria targetting them, whilst the US coalition arms them and only bombs the Bad Guy bases once they have been abandoned.

Useless info tidbit: Dabiq is the name of one of two places mentioned in Islamic end-time prophesies as their equivalent of Armageddon. Today, it's a tiny village in Syria a few miles northeast of Aleppo. Coincidentally, it's right on the southern border of what the U.S. and Turkey were planning on calling the 'Safe Zone'. The idea is to heard tens of thousands of defenseless Syrian refugees from Turkish U.N. camps to new 'Safe Zone' extermination camps to be guarded by Dutch U.N. troops until the time comes for their slaughter by ISIS/al Nusra/CIA (just like Srebrenica). But I digress.

Dabiq is (or was) the site of the battle between the Romans and Muslims that would signal the end times. Romans = Christians = Cursaders, but I guess NATO is close enough for today. The Muslims prevail in the Muslim/NATO war of Armageddon and then they take over Turkey - or at least Constantanople (Istanbul today). Then the Muslims take out the anti-Christ (Hillary) and Jesus drops by for a visit. (Boy, is he gonna be pissed). Anyways, we all live happily ever after. Like every other end-times prophecy, this may have already kind of happened once or twice before, but who knows. 

ISIS/al Nusra/Xe/Academi fancy the current war in Syria as leading up to this big, final Muslim battle before they take out the anti-Christ. Thus the name of their slick Langley-produced terror news magazine: Dabiq.

"future events are spoken of in the past tense in Hebrew"

In other words, if you described A HISTORICAL EVENT using Hebrew, it could then be read by some idiot as though it was a prophecy of an EVENT TO COME.

Schweppes was founded in Geneva, the same city/state as the New World Order. Now I think the PTB are just messing with us, dropping clues and such.  ;-)

and a can has a lid...

it had a explosive inside...


And Schweppes in english is an anagram for SENSAGENT!

An agent wants to blow the lid!
