The father of one of the San Bernardino killers told an Italian newspaper on Sunday that his son, Sayed Rizan Farook, had an obsessive hatred of Israel that underscored his Islamic radicalism and allegiance to the ideals of Islamic State.
An anti-Semitic streak was also discovered within the family as the father, Sayed Farook said he tried to dissuade his son from violence by telling him that “Nobody wants the Jews…In two years. Israel will no longer exist.”
The senior Farook, in an interview with Italian newspaper La Stampa, described his son as “an angel. Good, obedient studious. Maybe a little too shy, conservative and firmly against Israel.”
He said that although the family, originally from Pakistan but living in the US since 1973, were liberal city dwellers, his son became obsessed with Islam as a teenager, even refusing to go to parties because “a good Muslim can only see his wife dance.”
The younger Farook’s extremist tendencies only seemed to grow with time. The father told of his shock when he discovered that his son was in possession of a firearm.
