login to skype from United Arab Emirates

i am resident in dubai UAE,  but here in uae cannot login to my skype account, seems that local isp (etisalat) is blocking voip providers.Is there any change I can make to settings in order to let it work?
Same skype account is properly working in Italy
Thanks

http://www.skypefox.com/legal-challenges-of-skype.html  i don't know how current this is but it says that in the uae skype has/had been blocked.  the only way that i can see that you can get arround this is by having a vpn tunnel or possibly a proxy because the data looks different/behaves different and therefore isn't blocked.  but check with someone who knows the law that it is all legal, i don't want you to get into trouble because of my suggestions.
