1979 takeover of US embassy

Aban 13 in the Persian calendar or November 4 in the English calendar, contains a multitude of symbolic meanings and realities.

It marks a day that carries a historical significance. In a span of a couple of decades three separate events occurred on this day that not only did they change the foundation of modern Iran, but also dealt a blow to the contemporary world order and the US hegemony as we used to know it prior to 1979.
