We were introduced to Dubai Police Chief and Inspector Clouseau impersonator Dahi Khalfan Tamim back in 2010 when the bumbling detective was investigating the Mahmoud al- Mabhouh assassination, trying to issue an arrest warrant for Bibi and later claiming that the Mossad was out to get him. His semi-insane rantings (brought to you by the miracle that is Google Translate) have included claims that
Israel is a rogue state, and beyond legitimacy and international laws, and that its leaders have sick mentalities, and they need to psychiatrists.
Now, in an interview on Al Jazeera, we discover a new “humanitarian” version of Dahi as he proudly declares:
If I know a bomb is going to go off [even] on a street in Israel, I’ll take the same security measures to protect a Jewish Person as I’d do for someone anywhere in the lands of Islam.
As he speaks he has this smug look of self satisfaction as if to suggest that he is a man of SUCH integrity, that he would go to the seemingly ridiculous lengths of EVEN PROTECTING JEWS in the line of duty. Oh thank you kind sir, it is humanitarianism like this that gives us Jews a warm fuzzy feeling inside. This is tantamount to placing us on the same level as human beings, which is certainly step up from the monkeys and pigs with which we usually bed down.
Meanwhile the Al Jazeera interviewer looks at him incredulously.
But that’s dangerous talk Lieutenant Dahi. Many people would disagree with you
But Dahi sticks to his guns.
By God, if it were in the heart of Tel Aviv, and the activity is to target innocent people, its on me to report and relay the information, even to Israel, with which we don’t have relations.
Yes, when it comes to the Arab world, we Jews get a warm fuzzy feeling when we hear talk like this. Kind of like the warm fuzzy feeling the innocent man – wrongly convicted of murderer gets when his sentence is commuted from the death penalty to life in prison.
