So who was behind the latest suicide bombings at the Iranian Embassy in Beirut?

The Al-Qaida-linked Abdullah Azzam Brigade, we are told in press reports.

And who is/was Abdullah Azzam?

Azzam was the CIA's right arm in its jihad against the Russians in Afghanistan in the 1980s:

"Azzam traveled the globe under CIA patronage. He appeared on Saudi television and at rallies in the United States. A CIA asset who appeared as the embodiment of of the holy warrior and 'toured the length and breadth of the United States in the early and mid-1980s recruiting for holy war, ostensibly only in Afghanistan." (Good Muslim, Bad Muslim: America, the Cold War, & the Roots of Terror, Mahmood Mamdani, 2004, p 127)

He was also the teacher of the CIA's star recruit in its Afghan jihad, a wealthy Saudi contractor by the name of Osama bin Laden.

So was Azzam a Saudi?

No. He was a Palestinian, born in the West Bank. He was part of the refugee exodus into Jordan during the Israeli conquest and occupation of the West Bank in June, 1967.

So who was ultimately responsible for the latest bloody Beirut bombing?

If the phrase 'the big picture' has any meaning, Israel and the CIA.

Just follow the thread...
