The Ayatollah Khomeini holed up in France while he lead a movement to destabilize the Iranian government under the “Shaw of Iran”. When the street demonstrations (riots) were at a crescendo, he ousted the Shaw and moved right in. Dragging his Chautauqua tent with him. It was a revival he dragged back into the secular state of Iran. He was going to get the country back on track with a little of that “good ol’ time religion!”
A little hint that things were not going swimmingly between the new regime and America…..they took a group of Americans hostage and held them for 444 days while we looked on, powerless under the failed presidency of Jimmy Carter.
