"Crackdown squeezes Iranians in Dubai; US policy hurting small businesses" by Farah Stockman, Globe Staff | September 15, 2008
DUBAI - This freewheeling boomtown has always been the place where Iranians go to escape US sanctions. Since US laws stopped the sale of American products to Iran in the 1980s, Iranian traders have made the short boat ride here to buy what they want. When the US Treasury banned key Iranian banks a year ago, Iranian businessmen flocked here, to the financial capital of the Middle East, to open new bank accounts.
But in recent months US pressure has prompted a crackdown in the United Arab Emirates, Iran's largest trading partner and home to some 450,000 Iranian citizens.
After visits from President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, and Treasury undersecretary Stuart Levey, UAE officials have dramatically reduced the number of business licenses to Iranian citizens, according to US officials and a Globe analysis of business statistics.
In addition, authorities in the trade-free zones have begun to refuse to register Iranian work visas, and most international banks in the UAE have stopped opening new accounts for Iranians, according to interviews with more than a dozen Iranian businessmen.
US officials have praised the recent actions of the UAE, seeing the crackdown as a victory for US policy. But while aimed at crippling Iranian banks and corporations connected to the regime, the policy also punishes small businesses owned by individual Iranians who have no political connections and are often at odds with their government.
Is there NOT ONE POLICY that this administration DOESN'T FAIL AT?!!!!
Maybe it is MEANT to be that way. You know, MORE WARS THEN!!!!
Many of the Iranian businesses in Dubai are run by small traders from Iran's tiny, struggling private sector that is often at odds with officials in Tehran.US officials say they have tried to design sanctions that will hit the Iranian regime, not ordinary citizens. But they acknowledge that innocent Iranian entrepreneurs have been hurt by the sanctions.
But WE DON'T CARE! We don;'t care if the policy is OPPOSITE of the GOALS!!!!
Because the US GOVERNMENT SERVES ISRAELI INTERESTS, not ours!!!!
US officials say the new hardships are hitting the entire Iranian economy and sparking debate in Iran about whether the nuclear program is worth the price.
"If you look at the debate about economic mismanagement in Iran, they are starting to blame those problems - unemployment and inflation - on the sanctions," Levey said. But Levey is banking on the hope that Iranians will blame their own government for their hardships, and that their complaints will influence the regime.
That is TERRORISM!!!!
Many Iranians expressed bitterness against Washington for their loss of status in the United Arab Emirates, where about 40 percent of locals trace their ancestry to Iran. Iranian traders, who helped transform Dubai from a desert backwater into a metropolis, have found welcome in Dubai.
You would be BITTER, too, readers, if you did business with your neighbors for CENTURIES and then SOME ASSHOLES CAME OVER and said, "No, no, you can't trade with them, you gotta trade with war-looting corporations."
But Kamyar Houbakht, a Web developer who grew up in Dubai, says he experienced a new feeling of discrimination when he applied to open a business with a British partner. He was told, "We cannot accept the Iranian," he said.
How is that for WESTERN RACISM, huh, 'murkn shit-swiller?!!!!!
Imagine how the Zionist press would react if he said we cannot except a JEW!!!!!!!!
Just three years ago, Houbakht set up a directory of Iranian businesses in Dubai that contained more than 7,000 firms that were proud to advertise their nationality. But he recently shut the site.
Houbakht said he does not believe the new anti-Iranian atmosphere hurts the Iranian government.
All in the SERVICE of ISRAEL, AmeriKan assholes!!!!!!!
"I think they don't care if the sanctions are there or if it gets worse," he said. "When the economy is in crisis, it gives them more control. When others go out of business, they get more rich."
Gee, that sounds EXACTLY LIKE what we are going through here in AMERIKA!!!!!!
What a COINCIDENCE, huh?
