ahwaz

Do you ever wonder how Assad maintains a steady flow of military supplies and ammunition from Russia?

Meet Satan’s grandfather; an Iranian majoosi ogre who has sponsored the Assad and nusayri genocide against Ahlul Sunnah in Syria.

I hope the people of Iran hang this monster. He’s responsible for the death of so many Syrians, especially our brothers in Homs.

Let us also not forget our oppressed brothers in Iran, the Ahwaaz. Tehran (capital of Iran), is the only capital on Earth that doesn’t have a Sunni mosque in it.

اللهم عليك بالكفرة..اللهم انتقم من المجوس والروافض…

Vampires, Devils, Kufar…one thing they surely have in common is they love to see the Muslim blood being spilt!! they have caused many bloody massacres on ahlul sunnah and still til this very day they are in # Syria # Iraq #Iran and the ahwaz they helped the US in invading Iraq and Afghanistan! these are the worse of people! and the Devil Khamenei is their Mastermind!!

The Jameh Masjid (Friday Mosque) of Jondishapour University in Ahvaz, Iran by Kamran Diba, 1977. The layering of walls and voids allows the prayer hall to be separated from the intrusions of daily life. The gradient of the roof is designed to emphasize the Qibla, the mosque’s orientation towards the Kaaba in Mecca. In addition, small skylights were made to allow beams of light to penetrate the darkness and add a holy aura to the mysterious space. The overall purpose of the design was to take basic concepts of Islamic architecture and adapt it to minimalism creating a unique context to form this example of Post-Modernism. 

What do you know about Al-Ahwaz ( the forgotten land of Arabs)?

Ahwaz used to be an autonomous Arab territory that had its own ruler, Shaykh Khazal, until he was deposed in 1925 by Persian General Reza Khan, who went on to become king of Iran. Ahwaz gradually lost its political, economic and cultural independence when it was completely annexed by Reza Shah Pahlavi, who forcefully took over Ahwaz. Before Iran annexed Ahwaz, the Persians referred to the region as Arabistan (signifying the territory’s Arab character). After its annexation, the central government changed the territory’s name to Khuzestan. Since 1925, Ahwaz, or Khuzestan, is a province that lies in southwest Iran, bordering Iraq, Kuwait and the Persian Gulf. Ahwaz is now the name of the province’s capital, used by Persians and Arabs alike. However, Persians refer to the province as Khuzestan, while Arabs still refer to the province as Ahwaz (or Al-Ahwaz in the Arabic language).

AL-Ahwaz came under Iran’s control and dependence by force (in 1925) and since then many things have changed and new laws were passed such as:
1). Changing the Arabic Ahwazian identification into Iranian/Persian.
2). Changing the name of AL-Ahwaz to (Khuzestan), and renaming cities of AL-Ahwaz.
3). Disallowing Arabic education and often not allowing the Arabs to enter schools and colleges in Iran.
4). Disallowing speech in Arabic- the mother language- but insisting on speech in Persian.
5). Oppressing the Arabic people by making their children work instead of attending school.
6). Prohibiting Arabic books or newspapers, owners will be arrested and sent to prison.
7). Strict rules that a newborn child must be given a Persian name.
8). Prohibiting listening to Arabic radio or TV.
9). The Arabian who is suspected of involvement in politics will be hung without trial.
10). Iran governs AL-Ahwaz with military forces.
11). Nowadays there are women, children, old men and even pregnant women in jail, who are often executed by hanging.

THE ARAB SPRING’S FORGOTTEN UPRISING

By Henry Langston

Ahwazi national flag.

The Arab Spring swept across the Middle East last year, toppling authoritarian regimes in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and Yemen, while violence still rages on in Syria. Global commentators speculated about whether the Arab Spring would reach Iran and reignite the anti-Ahmadinejad Green Movement that was brutally suppressed after it started protesting election results in 2009. However, as soon as protests started this February, the police moved in to prevent a repeat of the tragedy that unfolded a few years back. Foreign news coverage then became severely limited, after news bureaus were threatened with closure and their staffs with deportation if they dared print anything negative.

However, the clampdown didn’t stop the protests. Two months later, Iranian Arabs in the western province of Ahwaz took to the streets of the capital, which is also called Ahwaz, and were attacked by the security forces, who fired live ammunition into the crowd, killing 15 and wounding dozens more.

Never heard of Ahwaz? That’s because, officially, it’s called Khuzestan and is home to one of Iran’s longest running independence movements—a movement that Iran has been fighting and brutalizing to keep quiet. If the name rings a bell at all, it’s probably from the 1980 Iranian embassy siege in London, which was carried out by Ahwazi separatists demanding the release of Arab prisoners in Iranian jails. 

Ahwaz is a mainly ethnically Arab province that was an autonomous state before 1935. Ever since, Ahwazis have been protesting both peacefully, and not so peacefully, to regain their independence. But, surprise surprise, Iran isn’t listening. And not only is it not listening, it’s shooting protesters and often torturing and executing the ones it captures while branding them traitors and heretics.

Unsurprisingly, Ahwazis are getting tired of demonstrating, and there’s now talk of armed insurrection. I got in touch with Kamil Alboshoka, who was forced to flee Iran and now works as an Ahwazi human rights campaigner, to find out exactly what’s going on.

VICE: Hey, Kamil. Can you tell me a little bit about Ahwaz please?
Kamil: Ahwaz is a very rich and fertile land, with many rivers that help it sustain its vast agricultural output. Ahwaz is Iran’s third richest province by GDP, but the country now suffers. Ahwaz is rich, but its people are not. We’re not allowed to study our own language, not allowed to engage in politics, not allowed to wear our traditional clothes, not allowed to use our traditional names, and we’re not allowed to have our own economy. The country is in a really bad situation.

How did it all start?
It was independent before 1925, then Iran attacked my country, occupied the land, and killed thousands of people. In 1935, Iran officially declared that Ahwaz was a part of the country, then they changed the name to Khuzestan in 1936. Since then, Iran has moved thousands of ethnic Persians to Ahwaz to change the demographic of the land. Now there are nearly two million Persians in Ahwaz, but they live in the centers of the towns and they don’t mix with people, exactly like Kosovo in the past, or like the West Bank. They’re Persian settlements and they have the power to take agriculture from the people. The economy is run by them and they’re supported by the Iranian state.

So the 1979 revolution changed nothing?
No, nothing changed. It just became worse, because, in 1979 Persians weren’t supposed to take power again—it was supposed to become a federalist state. During the revolution, the ethnic Turks started the demonstrations across Iran, and Arabs blockaded the oil and gas in Ahwaz, so that made the previous regime close down. Before Ruhollah Khomeini took power, he told them he’d give them rights to speak their language, rights to be federalist, and rights to have a percentage of their economy, but didn’t fulfill any of his promises. The only thing we have left now is self-determination.

Al Ahwaz will always be Arab

  • Khalaf Al Habtoor writes: Iran has discriminated against people of this region since their homeland’s occupation and annexation by the Shah

When citizens throughout the Mena (Middle East and North Africa) region are asking for political change, Iran’s systematic oppression of an estimated eight million Ahwazi Arabs should not be allowed to continue unchallenged.

The territory of Al Ahwaz — known as Khuzestan in Iran — stretches between the Zagros Mountains to the north and the east, Iraq in the West and Kuwait in the south. It is blessed with vast deposits of oil and gas as well as agricultural land, yet its Arab population is overwhelmingly poor and illiterate.

Tehran has discriminated against the Arabs of Al Ahwaz since their homeland’s occupation and annexation by the Shah; they are being treated as third-class citizens, abandoned to primitive living standards and without even the basic political rights.

The Director of the Ahwaz Education and Human Rights Foundation, Karim Abdian, highlighted the Ahwazi plight in the UN. He explained that the Ahwazi population suffers from a shortage of drinking water, electricity, plumbing, telephone and sewage. Fifty per cent live in absolute poverty, while some 80 per cent of children are malnourished.

The Student Union of Jondishapour University in Ahvaz, Iran by Kamran Diba, 1968-1972. The building is built using elongated brick indigenous to the region surrounding the delta of the Tigris and Euphrates and is built in a traditional Islamic plan, being centered around various courtyards. An exaggerated staircase leads up to a gate framed by towers, emphasizing the importance of the project as a grand entrance. The architectural language is influenced by the bold revolutionary German modernist movement and the monumentalism of Italian futurism. In addition the artist was influenced by artist Giorgio de Chirico and his operatic scenes set in desolate deserts with dramatic lighting. Through this, the structure manipulates the harsh desert light into an art form. Diba combines all of these elements into a way that mirrors the utilitarian principles of southern Persian architecture and thus retains the unique national identity of Iran.

  • Between Palestine And Ahwaz [The Proof Of Shi'ah’s Crimes]

Ikhwati fillah, a lot of people know about Palestine and all its complexities… but few, in fact very very few people know about Ahwaz and the suffering of its population… True right? And the readers must be wondering… AHWAZ?? What’s that?

Ahwaz is an area much wider than Palestine, around 375,000 KM square, and populated by 8 millions people. It is located on the border between Iraq and Iran, covering the peninsula of the Arabian Gulf, that when viewed geographically, its shape is like a crescent.

This region is also known as Arabistan or Khuzistan. The language of its people is Arabic, and they have inhabited the area since 500 years ago.

In the beginning, the population of Ahwaz consisted of 99% of people of the Arab descents, whereas the rest were Persians. However, their number now begins to decrease to only 95%.

Ahwaz is the biggest oil-producing regions in Iran, and the third in the world. However, many of its citizens live in poverty which is rather alarming. Their condition is very similar to our brothers and sisters in Palestine which has been colonized by the Jews since 1967. In fact, it is not an exaggeration to say that the people of Ahwaz are undergoing a more severe oppression than the Palestinians. How come? Because they have been colonized by the Majoos Iran (Shi'ah) since 1925, i.e. 42 years ahead of the colonization of Palestine by the Zionists.

Then when the Shiite revolution in Iran erupted under the leadership of Khomeini, a big war between the Muslims of Ahwaz and the Persians, which killed no less than 500 people, happened, and this reminds us of the Shabra and Shatila Camp massacre in Palestine in 1982.

Even until now, massacres and tortures against the people of Ahwaz, where the majority are Ahlussunnah of the Arab ethnic, continue to happen. However, since the mass media are not in the ir hands, then the Islamic world does not know about them.

They continue to struggle to reclaim their territory from the Iranian invaders who had seized their natural wealth, namely oil, besides persecuting them because of ethnic and ideological differences, since the Shi’ahs of Iran are of the Persian ethnic who, since long ago, are well known for hating the Arabs, let alone those who are Ahlussunnah.

Due to that, anyone who tries to fight off the invader Iran, his life will end at the gallows, or by the penetrating by hot leads. And this happens very often, in fact last month, the Regime of Shi’ah Iran had executed 42 Ahlussunnah prisoners. They do not distinguish between men and women as well as young and old, (they even hanged pregnant women).

You can see a little bit about their plight in the following link, and once again, this is just a bit of the unexhausted information, and the reality is far bigger than what the mass media manage to report…

The most polluted city is Ahwaz, Iran, and the second is Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. From the top 10 most polluted cities, 4 are in Iran.

According to the World Health Organization about 223 million people worldwide have died from lung cancer caused by exposure to air pollution in 2010 alone.

The cities with the worst air quality are not big cities, but rural areas with heavy industry. The least polluted cities of this study (about 1100 cities) are in the U.S. and Canada.

The Administration Building of Jondishapour University in Ahvaz, Iran by Kamran Diba in 1972-1976. The architect combined two very different yet very similar worlds to create the unusual project. He drew influences from surrealist Giorgio de Chirico with his barren, dreamlike landscapes as well as traditional Iranian desert architecture,  a from of desolate surrealism in reality. Both have a fascination with the dramaticism of contrasting light hitting earth-tone surfaces. The façade is clad in an elongated brick familiar to Iran and Iraq and are placed to make flawless angles and lines that echo the Italian surrealist movement. Four box-like structures surround an interior courtyard defined by water features and lush vegetation, a metaphor of paradise.
