"A Lebanese bombed the Boston Marathon via YouTube"

"... According to these excerpts, this jihadist sheikh is named Feiz Mohammad. Preliminary information indicates that Mohammad was born in Sydney, Australia, in 1975, and is the son of two Lebanese citizens who immigrated from Dinniyeh, an area located near Tripoli in Northern LebanonAccording to unconfirmed press reports, Mohammad was forced to leave Sydney in 2005, and returned to his parent's hometown in Dinniyeh. This came after the Australian authorities grew annoyed by the sheikh, given his inflammatory fatwas and statements, which they considered to be inciting collective violence and hatred.
It is worth noting that, since 1999, the area of Dinniyeh has suffered from many disturbances and security tension, as a result of jihadist terrorist groups that have penetrated its rugged mountain terrain. They have created training camps and safe havens, which they use to move about in order to carry out terrorist operations.
Previous Al-Monitor aritlces have mentioned this jihadist stronghold and references the attacks carried out by Sunni jihadists against the Lebanese army on the night of Dec. 31, 1999, in this same area. There were also fierce battles fought by the Lebanese army in Dinniyeh and in the nearby Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp between June 21 and Sep. 3, 2007. This has led to this area being used as a safe haven for Sunni jihadists who are sent from Lebanon to Syria, or as a center for regulating the withdrawal of Jabhat al-Nusra fighters — including those who have been injured — from Syria to northern Lebanon. ..."
