Tashfeen Malik (L) and Syed Farook

According to his father, terrorist Syed Farook shared the Islamic State’s (ISIS) ideology, wanted to see the establishment of an Islamic caliphate and was obsessed with Israel.

Syed Farook, the Muslim terrorist who murdered 14 Americans in San Bernardino last week, shared the Islamic State’s (ISIS) ideology, wanted to see the establishment of an Islamic caliphate and was obsessed with Israel, Farook’s father told the La Stampa Italian newspaper on Sunday.

“My son said that he shared [ISIS leader Abu Bakr] Al Baghdadi’s ideology and supported the creation of the Islamic State,” said Farook’s dad, also named Syed Farook, who lives in Corona, California. “He was also obsessed with Israel.”

“I told him he had to stay calm and be patient because in two years Israel will not exist anymore,” the elder Farook shared, according to a translation of the interview by Times of Israel.

“Geopolitics is changing: Russia, China and America don’t want Jews there anymore. They are going to bring the Jews back to Ukraine. What is the point of fighting? We have already done it and we lost. Israel is not to be fought with weapons, but with politics. But he did not listen to me, he was obsessed,” the father offered his odd explanation of currents events in the interview.

“[Farook’s] mother is very religious, as he was, and they united against me,” the father said of his ex-wife Rafia, who has accused him of substance abuse. “Once we had a dispute over the historical figure of Jesus. My son called me a godless person and he decided that my marriage with my wife had to end. They destroyed the family.”

Farook declared himself in complete despair and disbelief over what his son did with his wife, the Saudi born Tashfeen Malik. His daughter claimed while speaking to The New York Times that they had seen no warning signs.
