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.

In a 90 minute video shown on Al Jazeera TV channel, Al Qaeda’s deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahiri doubted the Iranian Government’s anti-American stance and claimed Teheran was in alliance with ‘the Crusade’ against Muslim nations.

“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.
