The Dubai police chief's outlandish claims

Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim, the police chief of Dubai, certainly knows how to milk a good story for all it’s worth. It’s now been six weeks since Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found dead in his room in an airport hotel, and most of the world long ago concluded that Israel’s Mossad spy agency was responsible. Yet day after day Tamim continues to make headlines, dribbling out more details of the clumsy and not-so-clandestine operation and issuing grandiose pronouncements.

Today, for example, he was quoted as saying Dubai would issue an arrest warrant for Israeli Prime Minister Binjamin Netanyahu and Mossad chief Meir Dagan. Two days ago, he announced that Dubai would begin training immigration officials to spot Israeli faces and accents, so as to prevent citizens of the Jewish state from entering on third-country passports. That followed a press conference last month at which he said he was “99 percent, if not 100 percent sure” that Mossad was behind the killing.

The general has an eager audience for these repetitive and increasingly implausible declarations -- especially in the Arab and European media, which revel in excoriating Israel for deeds those media routinely excuse or ignore when practiced by other governments. In an interesting bit of jujitsu, an editorial in London’s Financial Times on Monday lamented what it claimed was the softer standard “wimpish” European leaders apply to Israel for its “lawless behavior,” not to mention “possible war crimes” in Gaza.

“If, say Russia’s FSB, or Libyan agents, had carried out a killing… the discussion would have taken a different turn,” huffed the FT.

Well put – except, Russia did carry out a killing in Dubai, less than a year ago. The victim was Sulim Yamadayev, a former Chechen general, who was gunned down in the parking lot outside his apartment. Far from trying to disguise the crime, the assassin left behind a golden gun belonging to Ramzan Kadyrov, the gangster who rules Chechnya under the watchful eye of Vladimir Putin.

To his credit, police chief Tamim tried to subject Russia to the same treatment he has given Israel. At a press conference last April, he named the author of the crime as Adam Delimkhanov, a Kadyrov associate who is a member of the Russian parliament, and said he would ask Interpol for his arrest. It is, he said, “Russia’s responsibility in front of the world to control these killers from Chechnya.”

The difference, of course, is that the audience for a story about a Russian-sponsored assassination in Dubai is nothing like that for an Israeli hit. Relatively few stories were written about the Yamadayev case; there were no angry editorials in the Financial Times. Perhaps it’s needless to say that Delimkhanov and the other suspects identified by Dubai have not been arrested or extradited. As Shmuel Rosner summed it up in a dispatch for Slate: “The consequences for the assassins? None at all. For the Chechen government? None. For the deputy prime minister? None. For Dubai-Russian relations? None.”

It could be that, in the end, Israel too will suffer little from Tamim’s offensive. It will certainly be interesting to see if Dubai, a would-be regional entrepot sinking under its own debt, begins pulling aside travelers at its airport who it deems to resemble Israelis. For now, it seems clear enough that, for whatever reason, stories about the Mossad’s skullduggery are much more interesting to the rest of the world than tales about the Russian FSB --- or Libya, for that matter.

I don't see any "outlandish" claims but perhaps the Dubai chief just likes to stay in the spotlight to show he is on top of the investigation.

As for profiling Israelis and Jews, it's not any different than the profiling Muslims or Arabs in other countries.

Israel gets more attention for assassinations like this because the Mossad built and takes pride in it's assassins reputation. And too, because the world is weary of Israel's acting out.

However the countries involved in the forged or stolen passports are rightly incensed since Israel has been caught and warned repeatedly by all of them on forging passports. Quite a flap in New Zealand several years ago over this habit.

I doubt it will amount to much in the end at least in the US. Unless the FBI wants to see what connections the US based company that issued the credit cards to the assassins might have with other operations connected to Israel or to money laundering.

There's nothing outlandish in the Dubai chief's behavior; as you point out, he applied the same standard to the Russian assassination. What's outlandish is this author's strange presumption that the head of the Mossad and Netanyahu are not liable for the murder. I have little doubt that they were both complicit, even if Netanyahu said "I don't want to know." They are the very real suspects in this man's death. I don't lament the death of the arms dealer one bit, nor do I condemn Israel for ordering assassinations under these circumstances, but I'm not going to look the other way as Diehl does and say that the Dubai police chief is a fool for wanting to bring those who perpetrated and ordered the assassination to justice. You see, that's the edge of the sword we forget - the one that strikes back. In the existential sense, they murdered an evil man, but in doing so they became murderers, and all murderers eventually should be held to account. For what and for whom is Diehl really arguing? This is Israeli apologetics.

Posted by: amreporter | March 3, 2010 5:07 PM | Report abuse

I guessed you missed the latest reports...

Today the daily Al-Quds Al-Araby reported, according to Reuters, that Hamas suspects the security forces of Jordan or Egypt of being behind the assassination.

Mahmoud Nasser, a member of Hamas’s bureau, told the newspaper that slain commander Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was in possession of information “dangerous” to the Jordanian and Egyptian regimes.

So much for the hysterical way many western journalists and governments rushed to blame Israel. Will they apologize to the Israelis ?

Will Dubai start preventing citizens of Jordan and Egypt from entering ?

Will Dubai announce arrest warrants for King of Jordan ? or President Mubarak ?

Unlikely. and almost amusing.

Who is dribbling?
I would expect Diehl to think of an open and fact-based investigation as outlandish,and he is right.
If it had happened in the US,homelandish,we would have witnessed an unconvincing,but enjoyable coverup.

Unless,of course,it had been perpetrated by any foreigner,except the Mossad kind.
Then all options are on the table-from Guantanamo and Baghram to Diego Garcia or maybe to Uzbekistan to be boiled alive.

So, killing a terrorist is murder? And all murderers should be held to account? Then I guess we need an arrest warrant for Obama too.

How is killing a terrorist with a preditor drone any different? I am sure for Obama people well say "we are at war", but then this does not explain those who do want Bush arrested for the same crime they won't arrest Obama for!

If the media and the rest of the world spent as much time investigating the Harriri murder as they are doing for Mabhouh, maybe the the Harriri murder would have
been solved by now. Lets remember that whoever eliminated Mabhouh did every thing in their power not to harm innocent bystanders. They did not blow up the hotel or his plane. And while we are on the subject, I have a question for the governments of Australia,England,Ireland ........did they summon the Syrian Ambassador for questioning when Harriri was assassinated?

Kudos to Dubai for keep this story in the news as long as it can to educate people about Israel's gang of terrorists that go around the world killing people and committing terrorism. Israel has always been protected by the US and allies from any punishment for its crimes and led to believe it is above the law. So it is good that Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim, Police Chief of Dubai, is trying to hold Israel accountable for its crimes. I hope more countries will follow Dubai and work to bring Israel to justice for its crimes.

That's more than can be said about the IDF in Gaza, which massacred over 1450 defenseless, Palestinian civilians (half being children) and blow up schools, hospitals, clinics, libraries, daycare centers, flour mills, wells, water systems, sewage plants, communities for families and infrastructure.

I have followed this story with interest. In my experiences with international operations any plan carried out by Mossad Agents would have to be "guessed" at. They usually leave no traces and rarely are they found on security cameras. I'll bet another group carried out this act. But the Chief needs the publicity. His job is in question at home right now.

Over 9000 have been rockets fired by Hamas, mostly into the Israeli city of Sederot where countless of innocent victims have 15 seconds to find shelter and or find their children and loved ones.
Now if someone was the head of a group that fired 9000 rockets in to say, New York - would you consider it a crime to kill this individual no matter where he was in the world?

And here is a tip for Hamas .Stop firing rockets targeting Israeli men,women and children and the Israelis will stop attacking you.

It took General Tamim's police force a week to discover that Mabhouh had not died of natural causes.

But then the chief made up for lost time by declaring the killing, an electrocution, smothering, poisoning and drowning, all in one, with the body covered by cigarette burns, for good measure. Before long however, the corpse recovered from the burn marks, electrocution and drowning, and succumbed to mere poisoning and suffocation.

Chief Tamim's cleverness did not stop there. He concluded that the hit men had not used their own, true passports, identifying them forthrightly by name, nationality and occupation ("assassin") but had resorted to false, forged papers. That slimy dishonesty led our Sherlock to deduce that the killers were Jews, and almost certainly Israelis. Only such bunglers would fail to wear black hoods or hide their faces behind newspapers against the surveillance cameras of a modern airport and hotel.

Tamim's latest breakthrough lets him flourish the assassin's DNA. Nevermind how he can distinguish it from the DNA of all the other guests and personnel in that hotel and airport.

This shrewdy will now be watching for visitors with semitic faces arriving in Dubai.

We see here how expertly, modern forensics and criminal justice principles have been mastered by the Arabs.

It never ceases to amaze me the extent to which the US government and media will go to protect Israel, even in situations where they are clearly in the wrong. The "possible war crimes in Gaza" that he mentions are the subject of an investigation by Goldstone, who has raised serious questions about the actions of Israeli forces. I wonder what Diehl thinks of that? On second thoughts I guess the Israeli propaganda department of the foreign ministry has told him what to think.

It is amazing how Israelis continue to twist the facts! Diehl's piece of Israeli propaganda is an example of that. The most important fact in the story of murdering unarmed Palestinian guy in Dubai (there are 12 millions of them and multiplying fast!watch out, they are coming!): An army of TWENTY SEVEN ISRAELI murderers used TWENTY SEVEN FAKED/STOLEN European and Australian passports in their murder!? That obvious well-known FACT was NOT mentioned in Diehl' piece, and that is an insult to the WP's readers! Of course the Europeans and the Australians-and soon Americans- are outraged at the thiefs/the Israelis. Those who think they are helping Israel by hiding the truth might turn out to be its worst enemies!

The USA provides Israel with billions in annual military aid. The CIA and FBI both have strong liaison with Mossad. Bottom line, the USA should stop such intimate dealings with a state that engages in terrorism, Israel. The USA should stop her complicity with a government that routinely practices torture and assasination.

Such lawlessness by the state, state terrorism if you will, is exactly what drives so many extremists on the other side of the same coin.

Mr. Diel also appears to argue that we are to universally condemn "terrorists" who work in desparate way from a relatively powerless position, while condoning or overlooking the more refined tactics of mayhem and murder when utilizing the vast resources and power of the state.

Terrorism must be treated as terrorism period. The killing of innocent people is crime and committing terrorism in a foreign land is a violation of the sovereignty of that country in addition to being a violation of the international law. Diehl seems to justify terrorism because it is carried out by Israeli. This is a dangerous development especially when the writer is advocating it publicly.

"Hit Team"? The amateur killers are caught red handed in Dubai. These are not A-Team killers. They are the F-Team. They are destined to be dishwashers in the Army surely out of a good job for the rest of their lives (no disrespect to dishwashers or a-team killers intended). It's nice to see that their employer ropes in a dozen goons to do the job of one - true amateurs indeed. Didn't it take twenty USCIA to kidnap one in Milan? Didn't they also leave a long and detailed paper trail? This mission was filmed for youtube consumption!

Dubai did not allow Russian puppet Chechen to get away with killing Sulim Yamadayev and they will not allow US puppet Israel to get away with killing Mahmoud Al Mabhouh.

Of all the hundreds of people shown in the film, why are a select few faces blurred out?

"isrl" is no more than an amlagam of thugs and assasains who have stolen a whole homeland of the Palstinian People,Palestin,exiled by ethnic cleansing ,terrorism and violence over 70% of the Palestinian People and have been imposing a brutal apartheid military occupation on the rest for the past sixty years.

When Palestinians protest the theft of their homeland and its occupation and resist alien jewish occupation,they are desribed as "terrorists!!!!" and are murdered in full day light and in front of the whole world-while the US government is absloutely mute on this murder.

dihel is condoning the jewish murder of an exiled Palestinian refugee in Dubai and justfying it by another murder by also Russain occupiers and tormentors of another oppressed Muslim people,the Chechans.
