Al-Qaida to Ahmadinejad: Shut Up With The 9/11 Conspiracy Theories

 

Al-Qaida calls on Ahmadinejad to end 9/11 conspiracy theories

Terrorist organisation's magazine reportedly says it is 'ridiculous' for Iran's president to blame the attacks on the US government

Al-Qaida has sent a message to the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, asking him to stop spreading conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks.

Iranian media on Wednesday reported quotes from what appears to be an article published in the latest issue of the al-Qaida English language magazine, Inspire, which described Ahmadinejad's remarks over the 11 September attacks as "ridiculous".

In his UN general assembly speech last week, Ahmadinejad cast doubt over the official version of the 2001 attacks.

"The Iranian government has professed on the tongue of its president Ahmadinejad that it does not believe that al-Qaida was behind 9/11 but rather, the US government," the article said, according to Iranian media. "So we may ask the question: why would Iranascribe to such a ridiculous belief that stands in the face of all logic and evidence?"

Ahmadinejad said in New York that the "mysterious September 11 incident" had been used as a pretext to attack Afghanistan and Iraq. He had also previously expressed scepticism at the US version of events.

"By using their imperialistic media network which is under the influence of colonialism, they threaten anyone who questions the Holocaust and the September 11 event with sanctions and military actions," said Ahmadinejad.

The al-Qaida article insisted it had been behind the attacks and criticised the Iranian president for discrediting the terrorist group.

"For them, al-Qaida was a competitor for the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised Muslims around the world," said the article published in the Inspire magazine. "Al-Qaida … succeeded in what Iran couldn't. Therefore it was necessary for the Iranians to discredit 9/11 and what better way to do so? Conspiracy theories."

Al-Qaida also accused Iran of hypocrisy over its "anti-Americanism".

The article said: "For Iran, anti-Americanism is merely a game of politics. It is anti-America when it suits it and it is a collaborator with the US when it suits it, as we have seen in the shameful assistance Iran gave to the US in its invasion of Afghanistan and in the Shia of Iraq, backed by Iran, bringing the American forces into the country and welcoming them with open arms."

During his visit to New York, Ahmadinejad also changed his position on gay people in Iran. He had previously famously said: "We don't have homosexuals [in Iran] like you do in your country. This does not exist in our country."

But according to the American news website the Daily Beast, in a meeting with a number of journalists last week, he said: "In Iran, homosexuality is seen as an ugly act … There may be some people who are homosexuals who are in touch with you. But in Iranian society they're ashamed to announce it so they're not known. This is an act against God and his prophets. But we as the government can't go out and stop people."

To this day

To this day, I still encounter people, both at work and in public, that totally buy into the idea that 9/11 was done by the Bush Administration.

Some of them tell me the proof is in the fact, that one of the buildings collapsed that was not hit.

I do not buy into conspiracy theories and secret cabals running the world for the same reason that I am an Atheist. There never seems to be any sufficient evidence to support their claims. Of course, the conspiracy theorists will tell me that the government has hidden all of the evidence. Which leads me to wonder, if the government hid all of the evidence, then how do they have any evidence of a conspiracy ?

I mean, a congressman can't hardly have an extramarital affair without the whole world finding out (although I am sure that some have gotten lucky).

But for the U.S. government to implement a terrorist attack on their own country would require alot of massive participation on the heads of MANY people. The only way the government could keep that secret would be to kill all of the people involved.

But what do I know ? Some people believe that we have never gone to the moon, that Elvis is still alive and maybe singing duets with Jim Morrison, the pyramids of Egypt were built by aliens, and the world is going to end in 2012.

Lol. I guess conspiracy nuts

Lol. I guess conspiracy nuts who think the US did 9/11 have a use afterall: trolling al qaida. I can only imagine their frustration. They spend decades planning attacks, finally get a little one through, and sacrifice their operational capacity and leadership in the process, only to have a bunch of people give the credit for the attack to the victim. Those poor bastards. Laughing out loud

This is really funny. This

This is really funny. This is like the "Home Alone" crooks saying, "we want credit for clogging the sinks" don't you try to steal our spotlight."

But to BOTH these fascist assholes. You will not win long term. The internet is exposing your lies more and more. Blowing things up to make political gains WONT WORK, it just pisses people off. Oppressing your own country WONT WORK, eventually the more you tighten your grip the more you piss them off the more they will hate you and the shorter your days will be.

I fully expect within my life to see Iran's theocracy fall. And Al Quida while it still has numbers, is being tolerated less and less in the global community.

Imadumbassjerk will get what is coming to him sooner or later. I do not think we have to attack Iran to have it overthrown. I think eventually Iran's own citizens will take that government out.

I thought it was so silly of right wingers to object to Imadumbassjerk speaking at Columbia University. They bitched saying that it was sick that they allowed a dictator to speak in a free country. BUT IF THESE MORONS had actually been there or even watched his speech on youtube, they would have seen the College president call him a tyrant and  prick to his face. AND they would have seen the audience laugh at him when he said gays didn't exist in Iran.

What better thing to do than put the zoo animal on display.
