NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Al Qaeda’s propaganda division reportedly wants Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to shut his big yapper.

The Al Qaeda sympathizers reportedly published a lengthy opinion piece in their English-language magazine Inspire. Abu Suhail, the author, reportedly suggests that Ahmadinejad is trying to deflect credit for the 9/11 attacks from Al Qaeda because, in essence, Iran is jealous.
“Al Qaeda was a competitor for the hearts and minds of the disenfranchised Muslims around the world,” Suhail reportedly wrote. “Al Qaeda, an organization under fire, with no state, succeeded in what Iran couldn’t.”READ MORE: Judge Dismisses National Rifle Association's Bankruptcy Case, Leaving Group Open To New York Lawsuit
Suhail reportedly writes conspiracy theories are being floated to steer credit from the attacks away from Al Qaeda.
Ahmadinejad went on an anti-American tirade at the United Nations General Assembly last week, during which he once again insinuated there was U.S. involvement in 9/11.
Ahmadinejad’s remarks prompted diplomats from the U.S. and several other nations to walk out on his speech.MORE NEWS: 2 NYPD Officers, 1 Retired Officer Accused Of Taking Thousands Of Dollars In Bribes
