Dubai Police Chief: The Muslim Brotherhood Is Planning Overthrow Of Gulf Arab Countries
Reuters – “DUBAI – Dubai’s chief of police has warned of an ‘international plot’ to overthrow the governments of Gulf Arab countries, saying the region needs to be prepared to counter any threat from Islamist dissidents as well as Syria and Iran.
The comments by Dahi Khalfan, one of the most outspoken security officials in the United Arab Emirates, follow the detention in the UAE since April of at least 20 dissidents, according to relatives of the detainees and activists.
‘There’s an international plot against Gulf states in particular and Arab countries in general…This is preplanned to take over our fortunes,’ Khalfan told reporters at a gathering late on Wednesday marking the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
‘The bigger our sovereign wealth funds and the more money we put in the banks of Western countries, the bigger the plot to take over our countries…The brothers and their governments in Damascus and North Africa have to know that the Gulf is a red line, not only for Iran but also for the Brothers as well.’
Most of the detainees since April are Islamists, targeted by an official clampdown amid concern they may be emboldened by the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in other Arab countries such as Egypt.” Read more.
