7. Interesting take on Iranian financial support of Syria from Iranians:

Vox Pop: Iranians React To Events In Syria

"...Please tell Iranian leaders that it is not necessary to support Syria. Just pay the pension of National Steel Company retirees, who have not received anything for three months." -- Ali from Tehran

"Those [Iranians] who have invested their dollars in Syria are afraid of the popular movement of the Syrian people because they'll lose their investments."
-- Farshad from Meshkin*

"Tell the Iranian people to pray for Bashar al-Assad's defeat because, God forbid, if he wins then Syria has to be rebuilt with Iranian money" -- Soltani from Amol

"Iran's leaders care about Syria more than their own people." -- Balooch from Khuzestan Province

The concerns of working people worldwide appear to be the same as ours. Enough money for social needs, wages, pensions. There is common ground to be made with them and unions are part of the Middle Eastern landscape.

*Wondering why he uses the word 'dollars'...
