Marzieh Hashemi, 59, was arrested upon arrival at St Louis Lambert International Airport on Sunday and transferred by the FBI to a detention facility in Washington, DC, Press TV said.

Hashemi, who has been living in Iran for years and is a Muslim convert, has told her daughter that she was handcuffed and shackled and was being treated like a criminal.

She has been offered only pork as meal - which is forbidden under Islamic law - and even denied bread and any other halal food after refusing to consume the meat.

Hashemi told her daughter that the only food she has had over the past two days has been a packet of crackers.

I see these stories about racism against black people and it's real... but to be fair I have NEVER encountered ANY racism towards myself... not even for a second... not even when people find out I'm Asian.

But then I'm not black. LOL

I mean at least towards Pakistanis, Brits can be racist... but Americans never are. I find that curious...

Anyway.

Say my name again
Watch me start a riot
Push me to the edge
I know you wanna try it

Give me all your energy
Love me like an enemy
I know that you'll never stop
So give me your best shot

I need you to be
The keys in my ignition
I need you to feed
The fire in me
'Cause you're still my ammunition

You, you, you, you are, you are
You, you, you, you are, you are
You've been on my mind
Bullet through my system
Don't apologize
I want the motivation

Give me all your energy
Love me like an enemy
I know I should give you up
But I just can't get enough

I need you to be
The keys in my ignition
I need you to feed
The fire in me
'Cause you're still my ammunition
'Cause you're still my ammunition

You, you, you, you are, you are
You, you, you, you are, you are
'Cause you're ...
I need you to be
The keys in my ignition
I need you to feed
The fire in me
'Cause you're still my ammunition
So don't hold back
Back back back back
So don't hold back
Back back back back
So don't hold back
Back back back back
So don't hold back
Put you in the gun and the gun kicks back

You, you, you, you are, you are
You, you, you, you are, you are
I need you to be
The keys in my ignition
I need you to feed
The fire in me
'Cause you're still my ammunition
'Cause you're still my ammunition
