Speaker says Embassy Takeover ended USRAEL Oppression...
Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel said here Wednesday that the take-over of the US embassy in Tehran on Nov 4, 1979 (13th of Aban, 1358) by Muslim students following the line of Imam Khomeini ended US conspiracies against the Islamic Revolution.
Haddad-Adel made the remarks while addressing an open session of Majlis on the eve of the take-over on Nov 4, which is momentous in Iranian history because of two other decisive events: the exile of the late Islamic Republic's Founder Imam Khomeini by the ex-Shah (1964) and its declaration as Students Day (in remembrance of students martyred in 1978 while taking part in a protest rally against the ex-Shah).
"The late Imam Khomeini was exiled first to Turkey and then to Iraq in 1964. His exile paved the way for the victory of the Islamic Revolution and his return signalled the collapse of the former regime of the Shah and establishment of the Islamic Republic of Iran," he said.
