Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s room-clearing accusations of a dark conspiracy behind the 9/11 attacks last week at the United Nations General Assembly apparently don’t sit well with the terrorists, either.

Al-Qaida fired back at Ahmadinejad in the latest edition of its English-language magazine, accusing Iran of engaging in a “game of politics” with its anti-American rhetoric, according to The New York Times.

“If Iran was genuine in its animosity towards the U.S., it would be pleased to see another entity striking a blow at the Great Satan but that’s not the case,” the article in Inquire states.

Aimed at English-speaking Muslims, the al-Qaida article appears in a 10th anniversary edition of the publication devoted to commemorating the terror attacks.

Ahmadinejad described the Sept. 11 attacks as “mysterious.” He also questioned the U.S. decisions to kill al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and opt for a burial at sea rather than letting a court decide the terrorist leader’s fate. He implied that the U.S. military operation was part of a dark conspiracy to cover up the real truth about the 2001 terror strikes on New York and Washington.

“Is there any classified material secret that must remain a secret?” Ahmadinejad said after many in the assembly had followed the U.S. delegation in storming out of the session.

Al-Qaida accuses Iran of refusing to support the Sunni terror group because of both long-standing religious animosities and simple geopolitical jealousy. In short, Iran and the Shi’a in general do not want al-Qaida to be able to claim credit for delivering such a devastating blow to the United States, the Times noted.

The al-Qaida publication also features a photo essay of Sept. 11 and a look back on other attacks and planned attacks, including those in Madrid and London.
