Dubai police chief urges invasion of Qatar
Dubai’s head of general security and deputy police chief Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan Tamim on 6 June launched another of his idiosyncratic attacks on social media, advocating an invasion of Qatar and the arrest of “a young boy”, a reference to Qatar’s Emir Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani. The tweets inevitably generated a storm of heated responses. General Tamim is a controversial figure. When GSN last met him, in the receiving line for a diplomatic reception, he appeared to be an enthusiastic follower of the history of 20th century Germany (where he owns a home).
