Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a Mentalist!
This new piece is about yet another Ahmadinejad conspiracy theory - this time about 9/11. There are a lot of conspiracy theories floating around about 9/11. Most of them concern Jews/Zionists. ‘The Jews did it... again!’ Amaddinnerjacket also thinks the Jews, in conjunction with the Americans (but not the Freemasons this time), did it. No surprise there then. Admaddinnerjacket has conspiracy theories about conspiracy theories. He believes that the Zionists are spreading conspiracy theories around the world so they can take it over. His own conspiracy theory, though, is sacrosanct.
Why believe conspiracy theories? Because they make things a whole lot simpler. Because people like it simple. If lots of data can be taken care of by a single conspiracy theory, about a single individual or group, then that can only be a good thing. It makes things black and white. Just right for the politically retarded. Mono-causation is so much easier to digest than poly-causation. The Jews did it, you see?
The funny thing about this case is that Amaddinnerjacket is taking the limelight away from al-Qaeda. They did it. And they say that they did it. Then Amaddinnerjacket, as a Shia Muslim, comes along a spoils it for the Sunni Muslims of al-Qaeda.
We did it and we’re proud of our handiwork. For once, the Zionists didn’t do it! We did!
Al-Qaeda has characterised Amaddinnerjacket’s theory as being ‘ridiculous’. This is partly to do with the Shia/Sunni schism in Islamic politics and theology. This goes back to just after the death of the Proph Madmood. So it’s been going on for well over a thousand years. A lot of blood has been spilt aver this un-brotherly split.
But what’s worse than that is that al-Qaeda has accused Iran of being ‘a collaborator with the US when it suits it’. This shouldn’t be a surprise. Iran secretly helped the United States defeat the Taliban and various mujahideen before that. They’re Sunnis, you see. They also helped the US in the second war (2003) against Saddam Hussein. He too was a Sunni.
Thank God the Ummah is at war with itself. That’ll save us a bit of work.
