Whenever there seems to be a domestic violence issue – we look at the home and inside the home. In the case of the San Bernardino shooting, I think it would be blind of us to say that the mother who lived above the garage – didn’t have a clue what was going on! Wink! Wink!
According to Syed Farook’s dad the San Bernardino terrorist was a “momma’s boy”.
Speaking outside his Californian home, Syed Farook, 67, told the Italian newspaper La Stampa that his 28-year-old son was a ‘momma’s boy’ who had become ‘too shy, conservative and fixated against Israel’.
In a story on Daily Mail:
Mr Farook also claimed that his son, who died along with his Pakistani-born wife Tashfeen Malik on Wednesday after killing 14 and injuring 21, rarely went to parties with her because he thought no other man should see her dancing.
Back it up. A “momma’s boy!” What?
Let’s look at the mother of Syed Farook, Rafia Farook, who allegedly never knew what was going on. Cars pulling in and out. Packages being dropped off. Pipe bombs in the garage……you get the picture.
According to RedState:
There were three people living in the Farook residence: the two shooters and the male shooter’s mother. There was about 6,000 of ammunition, pipe bombs, and a workshop for manufacturing the pipe bombs also in the residence. The lawyers claim the mother lived upstairs and never ventured into the garage.
But the Daily Caller noticed this:
Rafia Farook, the mother of San Bernardino terrorist Syed Rizwan Farook, is an active member of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), a Muslim organization that promotes the establishment of a caliphate and has ties to a radical Pakistani political group called Jamaat-e-Islami. The organization with ties to terrorists and Muslim Brotherhood.
Farook’s affiliation with ICNA was revealed on Friday when MSNBC and other new outlets scoured the Farooks’ apartment in Redlands, Cal. An MSNBC reporter found a certificate of appreciation presented to Safia Farook last summer by ICNA’s sisters’ wing.
What do we know about ICNA?
According to Wikipedia, the headliners at ICNA’s 2007 convention were Anwar al-Awlaki (since deceased by a Predator) and Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the guy who tried to blow up an airliner on Christmas Day, 2009, with explosives in his drawers. Two members of the New York chapter were found guilty of war crimes in Bangladesh and sentenced to death in absentia. The Pakistani Islamist group, Jamaat-e-Islami, has claimed that ICNA is its North American face.
Al-Qaeda recruiter Anwar al-Awlaki has even spoke at at ICNA’s events. He exchanged emails with Nidal Hasan. You remember him. He was an Army major who killed 13 people at Fort Hood in 2009.
Wait there’s more. Another ICNA member, Noelle Valentzas was indicted on federal terrorism charges in April. Seems she was plotting an attack on NY City like the one at the Boston Marathon. Oh – you remember those two guys – two other refugees vetted by Obama. Yeah! We have a great vetting process don’t we.
I’m betting we hear more news on Rafia Farook in the near future. Who knows maybe Obama already has plans to invite her to the White House, just like the “clockboy”.
