The Storming of the U.S. Embassy: 'A Day that Shook the World'


Thirty years ago today, supporters of the late Ayatollah Khomeini stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 53 Americans hostage. In this article from Iran's rigidly state-controlled Kayhan newspaper, columnist Kian Mokhtari asserts that the event demonstrates a power ' beyond missiles, bombs and the cruelty of Western dominance' - and was the beginning of the end of what the Iranian regime likes to call 'The Great Satan.'

Followers of the late Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini storm the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking a majority of the embassy staff hostage. They were held 444 days, doing great damage to the presidency of Jimmy Carter. They were finally realeased on the day of the inauguration of President Ronald Reagan.

Human beings are a long way from perfection. While preaching tolerance they err and mace one another physically, spiritually and psychologically. But God and his prophets are not in the business of taking mankind's instincts away. Love for the Almighty is something that comes from within and is not a discipline or punishment. It is a knowing and in certain cases, a mere reluctant acknowledgment of a presence that keeps the universe enveloped in a state of physical being and continuous transformation. It's what is known as the cycle of birth and death.



Rallies in Tehran and other cities across Iran marking the 30th anniversary of the takeover of the U.S. Embassy are a reminder that nations around the world acknowledge this same power which is beyond missiles, bombs and the cruelty of Western dominance.


Tens of thousands of people from all walks of life and political persuasions staged a rally at the site of the former U.S. embassy in Tehran, better known in contemporary Iranian history as the “Den of Spies.”


November 4th marks an important event: the 1979 takeover of the former U.S. Embassy by Muslim student-disciples of Imam Ruhollah Khomeini (May He Rest in Eternal Peace). The declaration of the day as “Students Day” is in honor of the dozens of students martyred a year earlier in 1978 while taking part in a protest against the hand-puppet regime of the former Shah.


Since the 1979 U.S. Embassy takeover, Iranians have celebrated the occasion every year with rallies. They continue to mark it as a national day against the “Global Arrogance.”


On that fateful day in 1979, to thwart Washington’s plots against the young Islamic Revolution, Iranian university students took over the building. These actions of the Iranian nation shook the Great Satan to his very evil core and have transformed the way people around the world view the United States and its pitiful allies.

Even after the Soviet Union fell from its plinth, the power of Iranian faith in God has continued to alter the actions of these insecure global criminals, whose vocabulary contains only three words: tyranny, aggression and arrogance.


Whether these pitiful remnants of a bygone age like it or not, the Iranian nation’s Islamic Revolution has brought about a world full of aspiration and inspiration that exceeds anything the minions of the Great Satan can offer, because evil is limited by its blinkered vision of material gain while God’s love is bountiful and boundless.  



Our war and the many battles for justice that it may yet entail will continue until the Great Satan is humbled and put in his place. Zionism, capitalism and all other Western “isms” will fail and fall like autumn leaves in London, Washington and Tel Aviv.


Despite momentary setbacks from within brought about by men who have lost their faith, dignity - or indeed their sanity - Iranians stand united against tyranny. To the sell-outs who believed that their CIA-backed, $450 million designer uprising would shake the faith of the Iranian nation and curtail the Islamic revolution, we say: come and taste our metal if you think you're strong enough!


The Revolution is alive and well and lives impatiently in the hope of taking on and defeating the Great Satan's zombie minions.
