Not amateur hour

One of the strange assumptions of the presumed Israeli hit squad who carried out the Hamas assassination in Dubai was that the Dubai police would be neither able or willing to pursue a politically complex international case.

They have done two recently: the murder of Suzanne Tamim by a well connected Egyptian businessman, and that of Sulim Yamadayev, who apparently fell victim to Russian-Chechen politics. In both cases, investigations quickly got names and court cases got moving.

Presuming that this would be a typical bumbling Arab police force was not well-founded.
