[This man was never the head of a terrorist outfit called the “Abdullah Azzam Brigades,” nor was he connected to any of the various “one-shot wonder” who have sullied the name of former American agent.
He was in no way connected to the outfit’s original incarnation in 2004, which was supposedly run by Azzam’s Jordanian brother, Hussein Azzam, after his release from Guantanamo Bay. A Palestinian militant, (who was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia) living in Beirut took credit for the bombing of Rafik Hariri in Feb. 2005, calling his group “Victory and Jihad in the Levant” (“al Nusra wal Jihad fi Bilad al Sham”). He was recently cleared from the damning video that he sent to al-Jazeera, immediately after the bombing, by investigations on his claim contained in the UN report on the assassination. A group calling itself Abdullah Azzam Brigades was one of several terror outfits that claimed to have carried out the July 2005 bombings in Sharm al Sheikh, Egypt.
Majed Mohammed Abdullah al-Majed was not associated with the alleged Ab/Azzam offshoot of the practically flat-lining, Al-Qaeda In Iraq, which was itself alleged to have been created by Jordanian terrorist, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, even though he was reportedly martyred in Chechnya, according to fellow Jordanian/Saudi terrorist legend Ibn Khattab.
. This Arab group was blamed for the 2009 Pearl Continental hotel bombing, but it took credit for the big fizzle suicide-attack upon Japanese supertanker M Star in the Persian Gulf.
None of those groups was associated with this particular Saudi. We have only the report by Mossad source, SITE Intel which linked him to the group. By naming this extremely ill Saudi (allegedly a former Fatah al-Islam player, according to Saudi intel, i.e., Bandar) as figurehead leader, SITE made it possible for someone to continue to claim credit for Saudi/Israeli attacks. Bandar’s boys have merely co-opted the name Abdullah Azzam, since he is considered to be the “Father of Global Jihad.”
The original Abdullah Azzam was murdered by a suicide-bomber when he argued with Ayman al-Zawahiri over the central philosophy of the “mujahedeen” alliance. Azzam insisted that they liberate Palestine first (the “near enemy” Zionists), while Zawahiri wanted to fight the West everywhere, all at once, the so-called “far enemy,” i.e., ANYONE BUT ISRAEL. This should have caused any real “holy warriors,” who were loyal to Azzam’s teachings, to turn against Zawahiri’s EIJ (Egyptian Islamic Jihad). The fact that all of the Arab-Afghans were nearly all mercenaries enabled bin Laden’s money to hold the murderer’s conspiracy together.
Majed Mohammed Abdullah al-Majed, released very few messages to his loyal fans. The following statement was one of his last…Sure doesn’t sound like a guy who would have detonated car-bombs in Beirut:
“Avoid detonating booby-trapped vehicles, explosive belts and so forth inside the cities, even if the targets are important, because preserving the popularity of the revolution is more important and constant for the work,”
The current incarnation of Ab/Azzam, which has allegedly been led by Majed al-Majed, is a product of the Ain al-Hilweh Palestinian encampment. The remnants of Azzam’s previously decimated predecessors, Fatah al-Islam, merged with the Al-Nusra Front, to produce today’s Ab/Azzam, the one credited with striking near the Iranian Embassy in Beirut. http://www.shoah.org.uk/2013/03/01/coming-soon-al-nusra-front-in-lebanon/

Saudi Min. Inter. 85 Most Wanted
BEIRUT: Majid al-Majid, the head of an Al-Qaeda offshoot which claimed responsibility for the double suicide bombing outside the Iranian Embassy in Beirut, died Saturday in Lebanon’s military hospital, a security source told The Daily Star.
Wanted by Riyadh, Washington and Beirut, the Lebanese Army arrested Majid on Dec. 26 in the Mount Lebanon area of Hazmieh. He had arrived to Lebanon to undergo kidney dialysis.
Majid was receiving treatment at the military hospital in Badaro when he passed away, the source said, adding that his health had been in sharp deterioration.
Military Prosecutor Judge tasked a coroner to carry out an autopsy on Majid’s body.
A security source said Thursday that Majid’s arrest came as a result of intercepting information both inside and outside the country and that interrogation had been delayed due to Majid’s bad health.
The detainee was on Riyadh’s list of its 85 most-wanted for links to Al-Qaeda whilst officials and private experts in Washington said Majid raised funds in the Gulf for militants fighting to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Majid was the head of the Abdallah Azzam Brigades, an Al-Qaeda offshoot, which claimed responsibility for the Nov. 19 double suicide bombing outside the Iranian Embassy in Beirut. The attack killed 30 people including an Iranian diplomat.
In its claim, the group warned of further attacks in Lebanon unless Hezbollah withdraws its fighters from Syria.
A security source told The Daily Star Thursday that the Army will take unprecedented, strict security measures, fearing reprisals by the Abdallah Azzam Brigades over the reported arrest of Majid.
Majid was charged in absentia in Lebanon over involvement in the Nahr al-Bared battle when the Army launched an offensive to root out Islamists in the north Lebanon Palestinian refugee camp in 2007. Over 100 soldiers and 220 militants were killed in the clashes.
The Abdallah Azzam Brigades have also been accused of carrying out bombings in Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Yemen and several Western countries, including the U.S., and have claimed responsibility for rockets launched from Lebanon into Israel.
