UAE - Dubai -  16 June 2009 - Dubai is home to 500,000 Iranians who control some $200 billion in assets. The Iranians living here are mainly seeking the same formula: personal freedom, political and economic stability and a break from the West's political tensions with Iran. Businessmen use Dubai's free-market zones to funnel goods across the gulf, skirting the trade sanctions in place against Iran since the 1979 revolution. Youngsters come for schooling minus the mullahs, while older Iranians come for a more comfortable and cosmopolitan life. Hundreds of them are now demonstrating in front of the Consulate in Dubai against the President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election who appears to be fake///Iranian expats protesting against the re-election of President Ahmadinejad and mourning the death of the 7 Iranians who were killed last night in Tehran. Protestors cover their faces because the police is filming everything and they are afraid they might face troubles later.
