Why did students occupy the U.S. embassy on November 4, 1979?

Why did students occupy the U.S. embassy on November 4, 1979?

The reason most often given for the student occupation of the embassy was that the United States was allowing the Shah to enter the USA, rather than returning him to "face justice" in Iran. But there were other reasons: poor management of the issues by President Jimmy Carter, a history of Iranian resentment against American interference in Iran, (truthful) claims that the embassy was being used for espionage, Ayatollah Khomeini approving the occupation for his own political purposes and the students being radicalised by religious leaders.

Who set fire to the Rex Cinema, Abadan in 1978?

Who set fire to the Rex Cinema, Abadan in 1978?

The August 1978 fire in the Rex Cinema, Abadan is viewed by historians as one of the key incidents in changing public support from the Shah to Ayatollah Khomeini. In fact, Khomeini himself blamed SAVAK and the Shah's administration for responsibility for the fire. The affair resulted in the execution of the local police chief, Captain Taheri. The truth, however, was quite different. The whole tragic affair became a "political football" and it was the Ayatollah who scored the goal.
