Dubai police clown says Israel behind Egyptian revolution

Remember Lt. General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, the Dubai police chief who enjoyed a few weeks of attention when a Hamas terrorist was assassinated on his turf and he never found the culprits?

I wrote last year that he will be the last to know that he has turned into a worldwide punch-line.

He still doesn't.

From Gulf News:

Lt. General Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Commander in Chief of Dubai Police, speaking at the a special Ramadan gathering organised by the Dubai Press Club at Al Wasl Lounge, Trade Centre.... called on Arabs not to think deeply in the events taking place in Arab countries and judge them accordingly.

“From my knowledge and experience, I can say that any time there is a public movement or upheaval, and when you can’t find a leader for this movement, this means that there are invisible hands behind it,” he said.

He pointed to Israeli hands in the Arab upheaval. “Israel is a superpower, and has dangerous influence. If Israel wants someone to escape the rule of justice, they can do it,” he said.

Gen Dahi said his personal opinion was that the trial of toppled Egyptian President Husni Mubarak was an Israeli plot for revenge, since Mubarak was the commander of the air force that bombarded the Bar-Lev Line in October 1973 war.

“I believe that Mubarak’s trial in Ramadan is not coincidental, and if the verdict is issued on October 6 (anniversary of October War), the mothers of the Israeli soldiers who were killed in Bar-Lev would be very happy,” he said.
There you have it - the Arab Spring is an Israeli plot!
