What was the reaction of USA costumes arriving back to the USA? Did they realize where you were coming from?
Believe it or not, I came back from Israel.

On return I did IKA-IFN-dxb-IST-TLV

So the question would be: did Israeli security harass me?

Actually, not as bad as I thought, my wife met up with me in the airport in TLV,( decided to end this trip with a good vacation)
she was scheduled to arrive a half an hour later than me, I told her I will notify her when I depart Istanbul, and if she does not hear from me in Tel Aviv after an hour past her arrival , means that I'm probably being questioned (I was prepared for the worst, I was prepared for every scenario possible ) and she should go straight to her sisters house by taxi and I'll be in touch with her.
Luckily She didn't end up having to wait, and we spent 5 days in Israel, we spent shabbos in Yerushalaim then headed to Eilat .

Israeli security was more in awe then suspicious, the guy could not get over the fact that I was in Iran, he called in someone else from airport security for questioning, and she let me go after 2 minutes.

US immigration was also surprised when I listed countries visited, but only asked what were you doing there? And asked me some additional questions out of interest and let me go.

Sounds strange. They knew you were Jewish and i assume you had a long list of countries visited but they didn't ask you if you visited Israel?
No.  I arrived 2 to 3 a.m probably not the best English speakers And there was also a language barrier, possibly that being what spared me from the question

I didn't really do anything wrong, I didn't lie, if I would have been asked I would have told him the truth, it doesn't say anywhere that if you have visited Israel you won't be allowed in, but it's known that if you have an israeli stamp in your passport, don't even try . I made a new passport before I left

Wow, so cool that you did it (although im a shtickle upset that you beat me too it as i wanted to post the first Iran TR)

I was planning on going 2 years ago, but mom saw my facebook post and asked me not to go, 2 days later I received a call from dept of state warning me that I shouldn't go, and if I get in trouble they will not help as they had warned me not to go.

Of course.
What do you think Edward Snowden's job was?

People think of it as something far away from them that did never effected them personally.

And I actually believe the NSA had to do it.

I hope this doesn't convince other people who are not so bright to try this. If they lock you up, you will spend a long time in jail. Probably a minimum of 2 years.
