Thousands of Iranian students here will benefit from “agreement”


Little coverage is out there on the so-called interim agreement the U.S. entered into with Iran on November 24, 2013. Reuters has a great piece on the full details, but let me focus on this little known factoid that we have thousands of Iranian students over here, “more than at any time…” studying… yep, Math and Science. Better yet, they are receiving stipends from their good friends the US of A for their tuition, housing and a portion of their living expenses. Sorry folks, this is my feel good story for a Sunday. The ignorance continues unabated. What could possibly go wrong with this? Anyone want to bet they get free healthcare? Here we go:

(Reuters) – When Mohammad Hamedi Rad arrived in the United States last year, he carried his Iranian passport, a hard-won student visa and a backpack containing $14,000 in hundred dollar bills, because there was no simpler way of getting money into the country.

Hamedi Rad’s experience is by no means unheard of among many of the thousands of high-achieving, mostly middle-class young Iranians who are coming to the United States to study in increasing numbers despite U.S. and international sanctions on their homeland.

Under the November 24 interim agreement, Iran agreed to halt its most sensitive nuclear activity in return for a 6-month respite from some of the sanctions that have crippled its economy.

As part of the bargain, the United States and its partners agreed to open up a channel between Iranian and foreign banks to enable “direct tuition payments to universities and colleges for Iranian students studying abroad.”

This year, 8,744 Iranians are in the United States on student visas, more than at any time since the late 1980s. Most are graduate students, many focusing on math and science, who are more likely than undergraduates to receive stipends covering a portion of their tuition and living expenses.

    Not to worry, my friend. I’m sure the NSA is keeping an eye on them. I do hope they are not getting food stamps, too.
    Fifty-one years ago I was a freshman in college and lived in a dormitory. The two fellows in the room next door were Iranis. The Sha of Iran was paying for eveything. They hated the Sha and they hated the US for supporting the Sha. Not much has changed in all of those years.
