Just a few days after the victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979, the Palestinian leadership was welcomed to the country. They were handed the keys to what had been the Israeli embassy in Tehran under the previous regime.
February 11, 1979 was the day the Islamic Revolution in Iran became victorious and by February 19, the first Palestinian embassy in the world opened in Tehran. This was a message to the Zionist regime and its supporters that Iran would not ignore the suffering of the Palestinian people and would stand up against oppressors, big and small.
This edition of the Spotlight program is about the 45th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and its implications for the Palestinian cause.
