Google update: After my previous post, I found a good reason for confirming that Google is actually trying to simplify things for itself instead of just following the US government requirements: Google is already paying for the services of the ".ir" registry, which is an institute founded, funded, and part of the Iranian government. Simply follow this WHOIS link, type "google" in the text box and press the "Search" button.

Yes, they are paying for a "service of Iranian-origin" already, actually a service from the Iranian government. They simply don't like to deal with random Iranian students (or Sudanese, or Cuban, or Syrian, or ... for that matter).
