According to reports today, the bounding abilities of the Dubai police chief get ever wider and more far-reaching. In a press conference, apparently, "the police chief also said that travellers suspected of being Israeli will not be allowed into the United Arab Emirates even if they arrive with alternative passports.
"He did not explain what procedures would be used to identify the Israeli visitors, except that the police would 'develop skills' to recognise Israelis by 'physical features and the way they speak.'"
Sort of sniffing out the Jews, would that be? I am just curious in the light of new reports on Reuters today in which Hamas itself is now suggesting that either Egyptians or Jordanians were responsible for the Dubai assassination. But hey, that shouldn't faze the Dubai police chief, who is all-seeing and all-knowing. What a privileged position.
