Declaration of Human Rights
Editing by Carolyn Bennett
America’s thirty ninth president (1977–1981)
In his foreign relations practice, even though critics called his vision naïve, U.S. President James Earl (Jimmy) Carter received high marks for championing international human rights.
In reaction to the United States’ approved entry of the deposed Shah of Iran (Mohammad Reza Shah Pahlavi) into the United States for medical treatment, a group of Iranian students, on November 4, 1979, led by Shiite cleric Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, stormed the U.S. embassy in Tehran, seized sixty-six U.S. citizens and held fifty-two of them hostage.
