These particular Hajj pilgrims wouldn't happen to be from Iran, would they?

Somehow I don't imagine that Iran's nuclear progam is actually the hit of the Hajj. From IRNA:
A large number of Hajj pilgrims participating in the 'Disavowal of Pagans' ritual in this sacred desert on Friday issued a resolution condemning the United Nations Security Council anti-Iran resolution.

The pilgrims gathered in the Desert of Arafat, 20 kilometers (12 miles) from Mecca, chanting anti-US and anti-Zionist slogans expressing their hatred towards US hegemonic policies and the International Zionism.

Condemning the UNSC for adopting the Resolution 1737 against Iran for its peaceful nuclear activities, the pilgrims stressed in their resolution that Iranian people would continue their efforts to achieve the highest points of success relying on their faith to the Almighty and on the knowledge of the Iranian scientists.

Expressing their full support for the Lebanese Hezbollah, the elected government of Palestine and the Palestinian Intifada, the pilgrims voiced their hatred for the International Zionism urging all Muslims to unite in order to neutralize its satanic policies and eradicate it from the region.

They further condemned the hegemonic and war-mongering policies of the US and its allies that find expression in the occupation of Islamic states, massacre of civilians, torture of prisoners and establishment of secret and inhuman prisons.

Expressing antipathy towards the US government as the main cause of insecurity worldwide, the pilgrims condemned presence of the US occupying troops in Iraq as well as in other regional states.

They have also voiced their hatred for the US crimes against humanity including massacre of defenseless people and committing savage crimes at its notorious secret prisons.
