Farook was not Radicalized Mr. President- He was Raised a Terrorist

The President gave a short speech from the Oval Office on Sunday. In the speech, he stated that Omar Farook had taken to the dark forces of radicalization. At first glance, many of us were happy to hear that the President acknowledged that it was a terrorism, but I read an AFP article this morning with some quotes from the terrorist's father.

"He said he agreed with (IS chief Abu Bakr) al-Baghdadi's ideas for creating the Islamic State, and he was obsessed by Israel,"

Well that does not seem so bad, it seems that the President was spot on... but then the article continued with this gem.

"I always used to say to him, be calm, patience, in two years' time Israel will no longer exist,"

"Geopolitics are changing: Russia, China, America too, nobody wants Jews over there. They will put them all in Ukraine. Why bother fighting them? We did that before, and we lost,"


Oh my.


I hope that President Obama was briefed on these statements before the AFP report because... this shows that the Farook was not radicalized, he was raised a radical!

We were told a narrative that he took to ISIS ideology and went down this dark path. Frankly, looking at his father's words, the path seemingly was not too long. The more we find out about these San Bernardino terrorists, the more we have to question the "moderate" views of them prior to this act.

Do people really go from moderate, "normal" people to crazy savages who murder their co-workers?
