Mohammed bin Zayed’s advisor on Turkey’s red list of terrorists
The Turkish Interior has included the advisor of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed, the dismissed leader of the Palestinian “Fatah” movement, “Muhammad Dahlan”, in the red list of wanted terrorists.
This came during the ministry’s update of the “red”, “orange” and “gray” lists of terrorists wanted by the Turkish authorities.
The ministry said in a statement to monitor a reward that may amount to 10 million Turkish liras (about 1.7 million dollars) for those who provide information leading to the arrest of Dahlan.
According to the updated wanted lists, 4 people were included, including “Dahlan” in the “red” list of wanted terrorists, 3 in the “orange” list, and 2 in the “gray”.
The Turkish judicial authorities issued a warrant for the arrest of “Dahlan” on several charges, including his involvement in the failed coup attempt in mid-July 2016, the attempt to change the constitutional system by force, “the disclosure of secret information about state security for the purpose of espionage”, and “his international espionage”.
The Turkish Interior classified the wanted terrorists into 5 lists, the most dangerous of which are red, followed by blue, then green, orange, and finally the gray list.
The lists include those wanted for belonging to leftist and separatist terrorist organizations, others that exploit religion, and the Gülen organization.
Dahlan has long pursued accusations of suspicious employment and security coordination with Israel throughout his history.
But the man’s career took a dirtier curve after 2011, when Fatah officially decided to dismiss him and pursue him on criminal charges and financial corruption.
After leaving the West Bank, the close relationship between Dahlan and Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, made Dahlan’s first kiss to complete new pages of his disgrace.
Abu Dhabi’s harboring of Dahlan caused tension in the UAE’s relations with the Palestinian Authority, when Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas agreed to stop his official actions against Dahlan mediated by Ibn Zayed, then he retracted his promise later, and this tension continued with Dahlan remaining in the Emirates despite being wanted by the judiciary Palestinian.
Dahlan became described later on his arrival in Abu Dhabi as the emissary envoy for anti-revolt systems, as being a security adviser to Ibn Zayed played a new role in supporting counter revolutions in the Arab region, a role he was able to exercise with the full support of a rising regional power represented in the UAE, at a time compatible with The spark of the Arab Spring ignited in Tunisia, and its transmission to several Arab countries that Egypt was on its list, so Dahlan contributes to bringing the autumn leaves quickly.
The name of the UAE, along with Mohamed Dahlan, was associated with a military coup (July 2013) in Egypt that toppled Mohamed Morsi to bring General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi to power, supported by billions of dollars that the Emirates poured into the treasury of the Egyptian state after the coup.
Dahlan had strong relations with Sisi paved the way for the UAE’s involvement in the Egyptian coup, through massive Emirati financial support for the opposition “rebellion” movement through a bank account controlled by some Egyptian army generals supporting the coup, led by Sisi, which appeared in the leaked records on one of the channels opposing the regime The current Egyptian.
The same leaks revealed Dahlan’s involvement as an emissary of the UAE in promoting the counter-revolution in Libya, which was led by Ahmed Qaddaf Al-Dam, son of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi, in addition to the support of General Khalifa Haftar, where the coup leaders in Egypt paved the way for a meeting between Dahlan and Qaddaf Al-Dam to consult on the revolution in Libya.
The report of the United Nations Sanctions Committee accused the UAE of “manipulating Libyan stability”, and without a response from the UAE to these accusations, the report recorded Abu Dhabi’s support of General Khalifa Haftar’s forces with military aircraft, armed armored vehicles, attack helicopters, personnel carriers, and other weapons used against civilians Libyans, and in suppressing the revolution there.
Dahlan’s association did not stop at counter-revolutions in Egypt and Libya, as he appeared again in Turkey’s failed coup in July 2015, where Dahlan was allegedly entered Turkey under a pseudonym before the coup, and met with a group of young Kurdish and Turkish opponents of Erdogan, and discussed with them ways available to support a new movement under the name “insurrection” calling for Erdogan to step down from power.
Turkey also accused the UAE of supporting the coup movement by providing three billion dollars provided by the UAE, according to the Turkish claim, through Dahlan Fathallah Gulen, the American-based cleric, who the Turkish government confirms claiming to the latest coup attempt.
The Turkish accusations of Dahlan raised intuitive questions about the role that the latter might have played in establishing the Egyptian “rebellion” movement, and its counterpart in Gaza that appeared in parallel with its Egyptian sister, and both supported the removal of the “Islamic trend” from power in both Egypt and the Gaza Strip.
Dahlan’s name appears on the list of supporters to get Hamas out of the Palestinian Authority’s circle in Gaza, and also the funders of anti-Hamas movements, among them the “Gaza Rebellion” movement, but it is a role that has not continued as a result of Hamas’s tightening of control over the Gaza Strip, and its constant movement against any actions that threaten its policy internally or externally.
