A video of the bombing that took place in Iran earlies this month has been posted on a militant website. A group calling itself 'Brigades of Mohey Addin Al Nasir' has claimed responsibility.

The video shows a flag, of who's origin I'm not aware, can anyone identify it?
Is it just a terrorist flag?





Here's the video clip (not graphic):

I've never heard of that group prior to today.
I got the name and link from the site below:
internet-haganah.us...

The news article below talks about the bombings:


billingsgazette (June 13, 2005)
TEHRAN, Iran -- Iran's intelligence minister blamed Iranian Arab extremists Monday for violent protests and a spate of deadly bombings and claimed the ringleaders were connected to foreign intelligence services.

Four bombs in the southwestern city of Ahvaz killed eight people Sunday, and two more people were killed in explosions later in Tehran.

Intelligence Minister Ali Yunesi said the bombers were Iranians based outside the country.

"We have proof of a link between these people outside Iran and some intelligence services in the world," Yunesi was quoted as saying by the official Islamic Republic News Agency. He did not identify the leaders of the protests or the intelligence services and stopped short of directly linking foreign hands to the bombings.

He said the Tehran bombings were not related to those in Ahvaz, the capital of oil-rich Khuzestan province, bordering Iraq.

"These explosions (in Tehran) were carried out by amateurs, without a clear goal. In the Khuzestan incidents ... it was a well defined operation with a clear goal. It was a professional operation," he said.

I just googled Ahwaz and came up with the following article:



UNPO

The recent blasts in Iran's Arab southwest are not evidence of a growing separatist movement but rather a deadly warning for the government to address grievances, according to residents and experts.

Tehran-based analyst Karim Sadjadpour told Aljazeera.net on Wednesday that the separatist cause remained a minority movement.

Sadjadpour, an Iran specialist for the International Crisis Group, said the vast majority of ethnic-Arab Iranians fought against Iraqi forces during the Iran-Iraq war, demonstrating their loyalty to the Iranian nation.

But he added that there were plenty of reasons for significant dissatisfaction in the region.

"Like elsewhere in Iran, there is substantial discontent in Khuzestan but those in favour of separatism are in the minority.

"It suffers from higher than average unemployment. The region's ethnic Arabs - half of whom are Sunni - feel neglected by the central government, they don't feel as if they're offered the same opportunities as their Persian and Shia compatriots", Sadjadpour added.

All iranians suffered from unemployement and other problems , but none decided to attack civilians under the pretext of fighting the regime .

The Ahawazian cause is exagerated by some panarabs with political agenda .
The province that they are demanding for is almost inahbitable , but it is rich in oil :



There are about 2 million ethnic Arabs in Iran, most of them living in Khuzestan, a province that accounts for almost 90% of Iran's proven oil reserve.

Al Jazeera

So it is unfair that 97% of the iranian population suffer economically for the sake of 3 % of panarabs .




In the past 30 years , there wasn't a million people living there . Most of the habitants were Bakhtiars, Fars, and Lur . The original arabs were nomad southern arabs who were very tiny in population . Most of the arabs now are foreign arabs from Iraq who came to Iran .

So the arab nationalists who are demanding for their independance , aren't even from Khuzestan in origin .



The dereliction of the regime towards its citizens isn't justificated , but the Ahwazian arab nationalists are using the "oppression fighting" banner for other strategic goals . (like weakening Iran , creating arab-persian conflicts , ... )
