Nov 4 - #Iran's Revolutionary Guards chief Mohammad Ali Jafari said the US Embassy takeover/hostage-taking back in 1979 was pre-planned & had @khamenei_ir's approval.…

"Through highly classified measures, arrangements were made for an anti-American rally to begin from [Tehran] university towards the [US Embassy]... a limited number of students & university officials were aware of the organized measures."
"Only they knew the US Embassy would be attacked. When the crowd reached the university, with pre-planned measures, with the limited number of people who knew, they created an atmosphere to depict a very natural movement. Slogans were shouted to make everything look natural."
"As if the decision was made at the scene... Only a small number of officials, revolutionary officials, including Supreme Leader [Ali @khamenei_ir] strongly favored this takeover..."
The IRGC chief added if it weren't for this hostage taking, "without a doubt our revolution would not have lasted 40 years & without a doubt, our revolution would have come to an end in the first decade..."
"Similar measures... in such a level must be carried out to resolve our country's current problems, to serve the society, resolve economic dilemmas, along with cultural issues and other matters. We are hoping for such measures," Jafari added.
#Iran's regime is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism.

Once again, senior Iranian officials are blatantly expressing their desire to further resort to hostage takings, creating crises, exporting terrorism & warmongering.
The U.S. has taken steps in the right direction by sanctioning #Iran's regime.

More such measures are needed & Europe should also jump aboard.
