The head of Dubai Police has created an illustration of an annotated hand in response to the four-fingered salute being used by supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Lieutenant General Dahi Khalfan bin Tamim posted the logo on his Twitter account this week, and made it his profile picture. The image depicts a white hand against a green background. Each finger is marked with a word or name in English and Arabic - church, police, army, nation and Al Azhar. The image had been retweeted 200 times by last night.
Al Azhar refers to the Grand Sheikh of Al Azhar, a senior Sunni figure.
Tamim, a highly-vocal critic of the brotherhood, tweeted: “You must know that everyone from the ocean to the Gulf hates you.”
Many of his Twitter followers admired the new logo, saying it represents the five elements that Egypt needs. Tamim’s logo appears to follow a yellow one showing a hand and four fingers created by the brotherhood.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan recently raised four fingers in a sign of support to the brotherhood. Tamim posted a stream of anti-brotherhood posts on Twitter in the run-up to the downfall of former president Mohamed Morsi, but stopped after the extremist leader was brought down.
Last week, though, he started tweeting again.
One of his recent tweets about the brotherhood read: “I was planning on dumping you but now it’s better to burn you. Don’t speak with them and just block them. It would be best if they were erased from Twitter.”
Last week Tamim also attacked Erdogan after he criticised the Grand Sheikh of Al Azhar, claiming the cleric supported the Egyptian army in their coup.
