Tehran vows retaliation: Iran says to ban U.S. visitors in retaliation to Trump move


As the world leader in sponsoring terrorism, Iran has no moral standing to declare anything is not right.
  Iran is an enemy of the United States since 1979 and has never paid a price for holding our citizens for 444 days and most recently mistreating our Naval sailors.  Payback is still due.
Yahoo News reports Iran said on Saturday it would stop U.S. citizens entering the country in retaliation to Washington's visa ban against Tehran and six other majority-Muslim countries announced by new U.S. President Donald Trump.

"While respecting the American people and distinguishing between them and the hostile policies of the U.S. government, Iran will implement the principle of reciprocity until the offensive U.S.  imitations against Iranian nationals are lifted," a Foreign Ministry statement said.

"The restrictions against travel by Muslims to America... are an open affront against the Muslim world and the Iranian nation in particular and will be known as a great gift to extremists," said the statement, carried by state media.

The U.S. ban will make it virtually impossible for relatives and friends of an estimated one million Iranian-Americans to visit the United States
