Al Qaeda to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Stop saying we didn't do 9/11, you're just 'jealous'
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, president of Iran, addresses the General Assembly at the United Nations.
Do you believe President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is good for Iran?
Al Qaeda wants Iran's bombastic leader to stop saying the U.S. was behind 9/11.
That's because the terror group wants sole responsibility for the horrific attacks.
In the latest issue of its English-language magazine, Inspire, Al Qaeda lit into Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's repeated statements that 9/11 was the work of the American government.
"Al Qaeda ... succeeded in what Iran couldn't," wrote an author named Abu Suhail, the Jerusalem Post reported. "Therefore it was necessary for the Iranians to discredit 9/11 and what better way to do so? Conspiracy theories."
The article accused Iran of merely being "jealous" of Al Qaeda, according to ABC News.
"For them, Al Qaeda was a competitor for the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised Muslims around the world," Suhail wrote.
Ahmadinejad has spoken several times about 9/11 over the years, most recently during his visit to the UN.
During his speech, he said those who question the official story of Sept. 11 are treated to "sanctions and military actions," and noted the U.S. killed Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden instead of bringing him to trial.
Nearly 3,000 people died on Sept. 11, 2001, when hijackers took over three passenger jets and crashed them into the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. A fourth plane crashed in Pennsylvania when the passengers fought back against the terrorists.
