Dubai Police Chief Incorrectly Expounds Pasuk

Lt. Gen Dahi Khalfan Tamim, the police chief of Dubai, who is investigating the alleged Mossad assassination of terrorist Mahmoud Mabhouh, has incorrectly expounded the following verse in Devarim 18:13:

תָּמִים תִּהְיֶה, עִם יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ



Rafi and Elder reported that Lt. Gen. Tamim said that he has the ability to infiltrate the office of the head of the Mossad. Obviously, he must be using this verse as his source for this. He thus interprets it like this:

Lt. Gen. Tamim, you will be with Hashem, your G-d by being able to infiltrate the Mossad.

However, the real interpretation is:

Lt. Gen. Tamim, you will be with Hashem, your G-d by being nice to the Jewish people and stop accusing them for your own inadequacies.

(Someone, please tell me that Purim's over!)
