After Iran raises doubts about the official US account of the 9/11 attacks, an Iranian lawmaker says Washington intends to turn the event into a 'sacred' issue that cannot be debated.
Bijan Nobaveh told IRNA on Monday that as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has mentioned, the US seeks to maintain September 11 as an untouchable 'sacred' issue as they have done about the Holocaust.
"In that case, no country or individual will dare to make a word about the incident and the US will then be able to pursue its policies as it wants in the future," he added.
Nobaveh further stated that the main documents proving the fake nature of the 9/11 attacks are currently prepared by American citizens themselves.
The Iranian lawmaker pointed out to the Qur'an desecration in the US on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks and said, "They wanted to imply that Muslims caused the attacks and therefore the US could wage a war against them."
According to Nobaveh, most American people do not believe in the US government's explanations about the 9/11 incident.
In his address to the UN General Assembly on Thursday, President Ahmadinejad said the US took advantage of the 'suspicious' attacks on the World Trade Center to justify its destructive occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq that cost many thousands of innocent lives.
The Iranian chief executive also called for the establishment of a UN fact-finding mission to probe into the issue.
On Saturday, Brigadier General Yahya Rahim-Safavi, a top military adviser to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution and former commander of the IRGC, said the CIA and Mossad were involved in the 9/11 attacks.
"The US and the Zionists developed the strategy of the September 11 attacks in an effort to counter Islamic vigilance and to control energy resources in the Middle East," General Rahim-Safavi said.
