Almost 31 years ago, on November 4th, 1979 a group of Islamist students and militants took over the Embassy of the United States in Tehran.
Supporting “the Iranian Revolution,” they took over 50 Americans hostages for over 14 months – a few of them Jewish.
A little over a month later, on Yud Tes Kislev, the Rebbe spoke publicly, pronouncing that Iran’s moves signaled a shift in geo-politics, and that Iran was becoming a serious threat to the world at large – the United States and Israel, in particular.

The DVD, sponsored by Rabbi Yoseph Gutnick of Australia includes interviews from prominent Israeli journalists describing the Rebbe’s words to them, alongside recordings and photographs.
