In His Dreams

Today’s Delusions of Grandeur award goes to that annoying little turd otherwise known as the Dubai police chief.

dubai police chiefThe police chief of Dubai has told a newspaper he received death threats from Israeli spy agency Mossad, after leading an investigation that fingered Mossad for killingĀ  a HamasĀ  leader in the Gulf Arab emirate.

Dubai’s police chief, Dahi Khalfan Tamim, led the probe into the killing of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, who was killed in a Dubai hotel in January. The investigation was unusually public for the region and made Tamim a hero in the Arab world.

Tamim’s revelations about the suspects in a series of press conferences and media interviews — that the hit squad used fake passports from Britain, Ireland, Germany, France and Australia — strained Israel’s relationship with several countries.

In an interview published on Thursday, Tamim told United Arab Emirates government-owned daily al-Ittihad he believed Mossad was behind two threats he had received, one in an e-mail and the other in a phone call to one of his relatives.

He said Dubai police had managed to track the email’s source, but gave no more details. The e-mail said: “Protect your back if you are going to keep your tongue loose”.

Oh, puleeze. The Mossad could not care less about this poor man’s Inspector Clouseau. I suspect the only thing he should protect his back from is someone slapping a Kick Me sticker to it.
