‘Our money is the reason Egypt’s bloodshed,’ Dubai sheikh’s daughter says


The daughter of Dubai’s Sheikh, Mahra Mohammed al-Maktoum, has protested her emirate’s stance vis-à-vis Egypt’s coup with controversial statements on Facebook.

Mahra Mohammed al-Maktoum posted a comment on a Facebook photo of her father, Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, saying, “I’m sorry, father, but the reason for the bloodshed [in Egypt] is our money.”

She posted her comment under a photo of her father and King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia with a message that said, “New York Times: Money given by Saudi Arabia and the UAE to [Egyptian army chief Abdel Fattah] al-Sisi proves a conspiracy against Morsi.”

Mahra Mohammed al-Maktoum had earlier posted comments on the social network backing ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi and the Syrian opposition fighting against Damascus.
