Downloading of SKYPE in the UAE

I'm working in the UAE and want to use SKYPE however although you can use it here they block the downloading of it. Is it possible to get SKYPE on CD? or is there some other way to get it. All the other net phones I've tried to download have the same blocking. (theres no help from microsoft)

Does the re distributable download work?

Download Skype Packaged

If not, it could be repackaged and posted elsewhere on the web by somebody...

thanks bjh I don't know if repackageing works because I don't know what it is, perhaps you could enlighten an old man.
