UAE - Dubai -  22 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. The Dubai Police has banned the protests in front of the Consulate of Iran against the President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election who appears to be fake, therefore Iranians have decided to attend their protests in the mosques///Iranian expats mourning Neda, the young lady who was shot dead in Tehran, on the beach.
