Ayamn Al Zawahry comes in the defense of the Jewish state , and he is blaming the conspiracy talk on Iran and Hezbollah. Imagine that!
Osama bin Laden's chief deputy on Tuesday denied a theory that Israel carried out the Sept. 11 attacks and blamed Iran and Shiite Hezbollah for spreading the idea to discredit the Sunni al-Qaida's strike against the U.S.
One of the questioners asked about the theory that has circulated in
the Middle East and elsewhere that Israel was behind the 2001 attacks
on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Al-Zawahri accused Hezbollah's Al-Manar television of starting the rumor.
"The purpose of this lie is clear — (to suggest) that there are no
heroes among the Sunnis who can hurt America as no else did in history.
Iranian media snapped up this lie and repeated it," he said.
"Iran's aim here is also clear — to cover up its involvement with America in invading the homes of Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq," he said.
Those damn Iranians!
