    Whenever there is a tragedy like the one in Bulgaria we automatically focus on the technical and criminal adpects of the event. Rarely we pay enough attention to the political output of specific act of terrorism. In the Bulgarian case we need to answer a crucial question: Who is (are?) the real beneficiary of the political fallouts of the Bulgarian criminal act? Hezbollah? Iran? Or... What would be their catch for a "terrorist" act nobody really wants to recognize as its own? Au contraire, they are the one who would pay a much higher political price, particularly Hezbollah. Strangely enough the main benficiary appears to be Mr. Netaniahu only the one who interestingly enough accused Hezbollah and Iran even before the conclusion of the first round of investigation...all this appeard a very complicted paradox
