Dubai Police Chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim: Still Ridiculous After All These Years

Back in the day, the Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim was in the news a fair bit, especially after the ill-fated Mossad operation in Dubai. And he would regularly say ridiculous things. For instance, remember this?

The 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 killing a Hamas leader in the Gulf Arab emirate.

Or this?

Dubai police chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim on Sunday commented on reports that the term of Mossad chief Meir Dagan would not be extended, saying Dagan should have resigned long ago and that Israel doesn’t accept “losers.”

“Dagan should have stepped down a long time ago as his intelligence service has been exposed by Dubai police,” Tamim said in an interview with the Emirati newspaper Gulf News. “We suggested to him that he resign in order to save his honor, but he didn’t do that.”

I hadn’t given him much thought since then – until this tweet came to my attention.

The Dubai police chief is a strange, little man. Either that, or he’s smoking something he shouldn’t be. Or perhaps both.

He needn’t even look past his own country to see it is the Arab world that finds peaceful relations to be an anathema.
