Israelis in Iran: 'Before the Revolution'

Time was, Iran was a staunch ally of both the United States and Israel. That was before Iran's modernizing monarch, Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, was overthrown by Islamist maniacs--with the help of the catastrophic Carter administration. Before the revolution….

ENDNOTE: It's important to remember that Carter called the Ayatollah Khomeini a "holy man."

Carter administration officials also expressed support for Khomeini. William Sulivan, Carter’s ambassador to Iran, said, “Khomeini is a Ghandi-like figure.”  Carter adviser James Bill described  Khomeini as a man of “impeccable integrity and honesty.”

“Khomeini will eventually be hailed as a saint,” said Andrew Young, Carter’s ambassador to the UN.
