Four decades ago, followers of the Supreme Leader of Iran and supporters of the revolution stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran. This incident turned into a hostage crisis that lasted 444 days.

Since then, the Iranian regime has continued to terrorise. It has terrorised foreigners and people at home. It has terrorised nations close to home and far away from home. And during the past four decades it has continued to unjustly hold people hostage.

Some of the hostage-takers, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, former Iranian regime’s president became the most senior officials of Iran's regime.

Some others present themselves as “moderates” despite their loyalty to the Iranian regime’s agenda.
