Leaders of al-Qaida are disgruntled with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for comments that he made during a speech to the United Nations calling the 9/11 terrorist attacks a mysterious incident that had been used as a pretext to attack Afghanistan and Iraq.

“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 in New York, according to The Guardian

In an al-Qaida magazine entitled Inspire, leaders of the terrorist group say the Iranian President’s claims are ridiculous and based in jealousy.

“For them, al-Qaida was a competitor for the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised Muslims around the world. 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.”

Responding to the article’s assertions Thursday, Iranian state news repeated Ahmadinejad’s arguments and said “reports released by al Qaeda are usually believed to be produced by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA),” according to ABC.

President Barack Obama has called Ahmadinejad’s comments “offensive” and “hateful,” according to reports.
