The Islamic Front for the Liberation of Bahrain —
As per an RFE/RL story,
"Persians ruled Bahrain for nearly 200 years, and
the original population practiced Shia Islam,
until Sunni Arabs took power in 1783.
Groups like the Islamic Front for the
Liberation of Bahrain and Bahrain Freedom
Movement were inspired by Iran's 1978-79
revolution, and Tehran tried to mobilize
Bahraini Shia by sending in Iranian clerics
and training local clerics in Iran.
Tehran also propagandized Bahrainis through
the use of radio, pamphlets, and cassette
recordings of radical preachers.
Many Bahrainis were forced into exile or
deported for their part in a political
uprising in the early 1980s."
According to "The International Politics of the Middle East" by Raymond Hinnebusch, 2003, Manchester University Press, 2003, page 194, this was active from the 1970s to the 1990s.
