Expert: Al Qaeda is in league with U.S. against Iran
In a video released Monday Al Qaeda leaders slammed Teheran accusing
Iran of giving way to the US, by allowing it invade Afghanistan and
Iraq. Some experts believe the terrorist organization is trying to
undermine support for Iran amidst continued speculation about possible
military operations against it, by the United States.
“This statement is absolutely in tune with the interests of the USA,” said Aleksandr Yakuba, head of CrossMediaCommunications analytical department, to RBK daily website.
Yakuba believes Al Qaeda’s goals in Iran coincide with those of the American administration. A weakened Teheran will help the organisation boost its control in some Iraqi territories, where Iran currently has influence.
There’s also the issue of a religious divide. “Al Qaeda are Salafists, ‘purist Muslims’ who consider Shiites heretics,” he said, claiming that Shiite-controlled governments in both Iraq and Iran are thwarting the organisation’s efforts in the region.
