Al-Qaeda Dislikes Iran — 9/11 Anniversary Video

Whatever happened to “An enemy of an enemy is a friend”?

According to the BBC,, Al-Jazeera has acquired a tape featuring Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri in celebration of their 7th anniversary of the 9/11 bombings (why seven anyways? why not five or ten?). Said the BBC Article:

In the 90-minute tape obtained by Qatar’s al-Jazeera TV, deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahiri denounces Iran and the “Crusader” threat to Islam.

The latest tape refers to last month’s war over South Ossetia between Russia and Georgia as well as the resignation of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf, suggesting it was made as recently as mid-August.

Zawahiri is shown accusing Iran of “co-operating with the Americans in occupying Iran and Afghanistan”.

The deputy leader of al-Qaeda, which draws its support from Sunni Muslims, also condemns Shia Muslims for not calling for a holy war in Iraq against Western forces there.

Are you kidding me? What about the 9/11 Commission’s report that Iran had ties to al-Qaeda? As recently as last year, the New York Post reported that Iran still had ties to al-Qaeda, so what gives?

Perhaps… Perhaps Iran isn’t an enemy — our government has fabricated things before, especially concerning Iran. Like the whole Ahmadinejad threatening to wipe Israel off the map deal. Not true. Still, though, John McCain and his ilk like to make their stupid ditties about “Bomb Eye-RAN” and how Iran is most definitely evil and so forth. But, perhaps, if the kind people from al-Qaeda (who we KNOW are our enemy) tell us that Iran has betrayed them and “supported the US”, we know that Iran isn’t what the hawkish government officials would like you to think.

I think this should let us know for sure that Iran’s not an enemy. However… the media continues to misquote and misjudge Iran and the Middle East as a whole. After all, we’ve labeled HAMAS a terrorist organization when they were actually elected head of the Palestinian parliament. So much for us loving democracy.

[Stay tuned for a massive Project Atlas announcement tomorrow!]

  1. Sunni’s hate Shiites – always have always will – before they can take over the world, they will fight it out between themselves.

  2. Very true. I can’t believe I overlooked that!

    Still — there’s no doubt in my mind that Iran is not a threat, and all our posturing is just to drum up a cry for war against them.

    I have nothing to add. That was the best post I have read in ages. I knew I was going to like this blog!

  4. You mean you didn’t already like it? Ah, shame, Bead!

  5. Ohm Brett – you have to take into account the Wahabbists.

    Many more to add to that mix – this is why I know the US is full of shite when it comes to a war on terror etc.

    All BS.
