Kavon Iraniha: U.S. No Fly List

Iranian-American student stranded in Costa Rica

Examiner: A San Diego State University graduate student trying to return home from Costa Rica was told by the U.S. government on Tuesday that he was on the "no-fly" list and could not board the plane with friends and family to return home. Kavon Iraniha, 27, an Iranian-American Muslim who was born and raised in San Diego, was “shocked” when he was interviewed by the FBI about his political and religious affiliations and denied to board his flight back home to San Diego.

Iraniha had just received his master's degree in international law from the University for Peace after one year in Costa Rica. He currently holds a bachelors degree in political science from San Diego State University. No clear reason has been stated by the FBI and U.S. government why Iraniha was placed on a no-fly list, said Hanif Mohebi, executive director of the San Diego chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations >>>

Shhhh! Doktor Mohamdes, Anahid has no sense of humor!

by Albaloo on

She probably is going to hire her imaginary lawyer and fire you or sue IC.  She has already done that to the poster here called " Do Not Shoot Me " and got him blocked.  It is good to have the admin on your side.

No anahita. You are absolutely WRONG. despite this being a public site I and whomever else , if they choose CAN and WILL have the right to exchange freely unless otherwise specified by the monitors , that is to say a warning would be issued.

 I was not being rude just because You thought so. I am sorry to Offend you and hurt your feelings here!

Hala ki sheeresh dare khoshk mishe?? LOL. To ya man?

Oh so i used a Jaheli language and NO one but YOU the Queen anahita undertood and got offended by it. Thank you for that great revelation.  For the last time Anahita. Butt out of it.

DM, this is public site, not between you and yaroo.

by Anahid Hojjati on

if you want to be rude, exchange private messages with yaroo and write that kind of garbage in those private messages. Also even if you are not doctor or mohandess but savad ke daree. the kind of wording you used was for jahelhaye beesavad.

by Dr. Mohandes on

Stop being a you know what okay? sheere to ke khoshk shode alreay. I am sorry for your ordeal.

You did not even read what i said about me not being a real mohandes or a doctor and keep on insisting on it like a little baby. You don't worry about what words other people use or what have you. This was between me and oon yaroo since we know enough about one another to know our capacity to handle jokes and such. You really are in no position to EXPECT anything from anyone, and worry about your own manners and how you conduct yourself. I don't worry too much about be lajan keshidan e IC because the damage has already been done with all due respect to the management. So... Drop it girly girl. alright?

Anahid Hojjati

 By the way my goal was not to put you down. I don't even know who you are. You are only a majazee persona to me.  However, I have spent time on this site and I believe when you used words like that, it was in extreme poor taste. I expect a minimum of politeness of contributors on this site but these days, this seems to be too much to ask. Here and there with comments like you made, IC ra be lajan meekesheed.

first off, ay val be jamalet. bah bah. chi kardeh.

second of all, why do you insist on fooling yourself that i am necessarily and by profession a mohandes? You want put me down just Put me down dudett. why going to such  elaborate lenghts

Ahhh Man. You crack me up Friend. You are so awsomeful (new esskpression)

Despite such an strategy the spaniards could have made something happen if only they took some outside shots. seems like they lack some outside shooters and that sisi boy, torres, failed to capitalize on some brilliant opportunities. That is according what i saw on Irib3.com's version at least!!

But as far as the defense goes Italians had gone back to the old style of playing the game, to namely freaking block the crap out of their shots.

I already applied last night. Online! no recommendation letters, no nothing:)) They even offered me a deal, if you have a master's degree, now and for a limited time only, you can get your Post doc. the live customer service officer told me Jost geeve me your sochial secooreety nomber senior, and i take care ov it (kinda like with a rickey ricardo accent) 

Babes know me here as the crazy guy who decided to go back after all these years! oh look, der hee eez. ker ker ker...is he k...khol or what?

 so i am lucky i am not getting slapped around, let alone getting inside their heads and rock their world!

by Faramarz on

Sorry to get back to you with a delay. I was watching the matches in the "Group of Debt!"

Italy exposed Spain's problems big time. Now every team knows how to defeat Spain if they can only execute. Put 2 fast forwards upfront, pack the middle of the field with 5 halfbacks and defend your end of the field and have 3 tough defenders around the box. Iniesta and Silva are the guys you want to worry about. Bambino Torres messed up big time.

University for Peace is based in San Jose, Costa Rica and sounds like a "Golabi" higher education establishment. Maybe I should apply for a doctorate from there.

Somehow I feel inferior whenever I address you as Doctor Mohandes! Do you get a lot of positive reactions from hot chicks in Iran when you throw around your title?


I hope he is not involved with shady Arabs.

by Liberated on

We dont need Iranians brainwashed by Arabs to do stupid shit in the U.S. 

I trust that FBI is not stupid. FBI is protecting the interest of all American including Iranian Americans. 

Long Live the Free World and fuck all Islamist everywhere.

I hear you but would you think that is a practical to thing to expect? I mean chances are that the moment senator Haley Baley from Shagina, Arkanshaa's phone rings they will hang up on you the moment he or she realize you have a persian themed name. Shhtay there Ya eyeranian...datsh where you belong anyway. You can't say that is not a possibility.

But in all seriousness, getting some religious organization would not necessarily have anything to do with you giving your religion a higher priority over your nationality or your adopted culture and country. besides, we don't even know how they get involved. i don't know, i did not read the whole thing. I am guessing that these guys have a nose for these matters and are sitting there waiting for something to happen.

ohhh sooo you meant Layeh ability?:)) who is ability? is she good looking? is she single? You mean you don't like gerdaloo?:)

I have no problems with one's religion!

If I myself or a family member of mine were in this situation, I would pick up the phone and call my congressman/woman/senator and say hey yo, I voted for you and I am a law-abiding tax-paying American! Why am I not being allowed to enter my country?

I would not get the American Muslim or Jewish or Baha'i or Zartoshti associations involved, period! Unless, I think my religion is more important than my country!?

Of course, If I am an American only in name and in the context of having just a passport and I don't vote, and I don't have any loyalty to my country of citizenship, then, of course, I would call my Muslim whatever association!

BTW, I am not suggesting this family is of the latter kind at all!

Oon Yaroo. On Being A Muslim

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

Being a Muslim or a Jew or A Christian is no crime. 

It is being an extremist = having anti-secular views, that is not considered an asset. 

Both Jews and Christians have their extremists too, there is no better or worse extremist they all show the same symptoms. 

As you know in our Iranian culture, the king is a jew, a christian, a muslim, a bahai, a budhist, a zoroastrian and a member of all religions etc, he is the national leader of all relgions and can not discriminate against any.  He must honor each religions traditions and celebrations as the first member.

Religion is free and can not be intervened in by government and no religion can interfer in government either. This has worked well in producing peace for over 2500 years, no one can change another through government or be changed by another through government power.  Independent from each other and government, separate and with total freedom, within the limits of the law.  The trouble is this national tradition, used through dynasties, started by cyrus, has not been honored in the last 300 years, with the exception of the last 2 Pahlavi kings who honored our Iranian pre-islamic culture.

Why not, I am an American? Period! Don't you realize being a Muslim is not considered an asset in this country? Or, in any other country, for that matter!
