The above organisation is active in Belgium, showing itself a militant group
defending immigrants, particularly Islamic ones. Having come to the fore in
April 2002, it has logically become the natural antagonist of the Vlaams Blok.
But then the AEL has been frowned upon by all major political parties and
(verbally) attacked by the Prime Minister. It will participate in the
forthcoming federal elections (May) in alliance with a small communist party.
The AEL is also busy extending its action radius to neighbouring countries such
as the Netherlands.
Have a look at their website: http://www.arabeuropean.org/index.html and look for the pictures announced in the left column. The AEL uses a striking flag in the pan-Arabic colours. (More information needed here. For instance, is Europe explicitly represented by one of the two crescents?)

The AEL has entered into an electoral alliance with the Partij van de Arbeid
(Labour Party) which has nothing to do with their Dutch namesake.
The Dutch PvdA is social democrat whereas the Flemish PvdA is left- wing communist, they used to be maoists I believe. The name then was Alle Macht Aan De Arbeiders, AMADA in short (All Power To The Workers).
The AEL-PvdA alliance has received the name Resist. No info on emblems or the like.

http://www.arabeuropean.org/News/actfoto091201.html - not a bad design IMO.
The AEL has announced to become active in the Netherlands,
but there was no flag of them in the demonstration one week ago AFAIK.

The large flag at the front of the photo has red at the hoist, while the
smaller flags carried by other demonstrators have black. Has there been an "official"
design agreed upon?

Indeed, the flag is a great flag, vexilologically speaking. In the photos,
you'll find two versions of that flag (one of which as a small plastic flag, so
it might not be more than an error, or something quite marginal), plus the
- Hezbollah (yellow variant)
- a green flag with white shahada (no swords in sight...)
- a red flag with yellow hammer and sickle and some writing
- a seemingly plain black flag
- Palestine with lots of writing

The AEL seems to be concerned with Belgium only. AEL is a political party and
not an umbrella organization like the Arab League (although the choice of a
similar name is probably not a coincidence).
