Outrage over Mohammad Shahab Dehghani Hossein's recent airport entry denial, and rapid deportation, is an ongoing issue that many Iranians who want to indulge themselves by going back and forth to Iran for family visits, or show-off vacations.
In the case of Jason Rezaian, naively, to see how they can help Iran mend something or other, that they think they can somehow mend. Or possibly as an actual reporter for the WP.
When you come from a country like the Islamic Republic of Iran, what should be Shah-era easy, is not easy anymore. Hasn't been for 40 years. But we can't seem to acknowledge never mind accept our deserved inconveniences.
You see, when you come from a country like the Islamic Republic of Iran, and are a lazy SOB, you get what you deserve, as a result of your laziness, and what you deserve is directly related to what your laziness has allowed to flourish, while you were being lazy.
Did I mention that Iranians are lazy?
Apparently in the case of Mr. Dehghani, according to DHS, Dehghani had recently been in Iraq.
Why? (We all know that there is literally NO REASON FOR ANYONE TO EVER VISIT IRAQ EITHER IN THE SADDAM PAST, CERTAINLY IN THE PRESENT, AND MOST LIKELY IN THE FUTURE)
In addition Mr. Dehghani allegedly runs a Youtube Channel called "Islamic Pulse".
Why? (We all know that the only Islam worth considering is one with NO PULSE)
But in addition to Mr. Dehghani's extra curricular activities and questionable field trips, it turns out that Mr. Dehghani comes from a long line of dubiously dis-honorable Dehghanis, namely, the Dehghanis who have a commercial company that is easily tied to the IRGC.
The family company has been on the US sanctions list, like forever.
So not only is it not surprising that members of the Dehghani family with explicitly obvious financial ties to the IRGC would not be inconvenienced travelling to see the wonders of the world, it is nothing short of outrageous that Mr. Dehghani got this far, before being tossed back into the darkness from whence he was spawned.
Meanwhile none of this would be necessary if Iranians abroad stood firm in safe opposition, and Iranians inside Iran simply objected in silence.
If we can do this once, together, maybe we can get back to the days, when travelling with an Iranian passport raised border pcontrol eyebrows in admiration instead of suspicion.
But the clearest message Iranians should get from Mr. Dehghani's reasonable free trip back home, is that none of this is the fault of the DHS, Trump, the US, or even the fault of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
After all, a poisonous Snake is always going to be slimy, and it will always bite whoever it needs to.
