California: “Devout” Muslim Couple Responsible For Mass Killing Used Home As IED Factory, Wore Cameras To Record Massacre, Were Ready For War
Notice how others who knew the jihadists often describe them. “He never struck me as a fanatic,” said one former colleague. Of course, sleeping terrorists living amongst us in the West rarely do, until they actually strike. Another co-worker said that the husband and wife appeared to be “living the American dream.” Unfortunately, this devout Muslim couple’s “American Dream” ended up being a nightmare for everyone else …

By Snejana Farberov and Mia De Graaf and Khaleda Rahman, Daily Mail – “On Wednesday morning, California health inspector and US citizen Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and his Saudi wife of two years, Tashfeen Malik, 27, dropped off their six-month-old baby with Farook’s mother, saying they were going to a doctor’s appointment.
By noon, according to police, the couple had donned assault clothing, armed themselves with rifles and stormed a holiday party attended by San Bernardino County employees, killing 14 people and wounding 17 others.
Before sunset, after a massive manhunt and a violent shootout with police on a residential street, they were both dead, leaving a grieving community with few clues to puzzle out the motive for the carnage.
Those who knew Farook, among them his colleagues at the San Bernardino County Public Health Department, described him as a devout Muslim but not someone who often talked about religion.
‘He never struck me as a fanatic, he never struck me as suspicious,’ said Griselda Reisinger, a former colleague.
Co-worker Patrick Baccari, who shared a cubicle with Farook, told the Los Angeles Times he and his young family appeared to be ‘living the American dream.’
Farook’s family was originally from South Asia, while Malik was believed to be from Pakistan and had lived in Saudi Arabia before coming to the United States, said Hussam Ayloush, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). Farook had an older brother, he added, who had served in the US military.
The gunman’s father, also named Syed Farook, seemed shocked when talking to the New York Daily News after the shooting.
‘I haven’t heard anything,’ the elder Mr Farook said before his son’s name became public. ‘He was very religious. He would go to work, come back, go to pray, come back. He’s Muslim.'” Read more.

IEDs, Tactical Gear, Assault Rifles – Muslim Couple Was Ready ‘For A Sustained Fight’ – “As chilling details emerged about the Muslim couple who unleashed carnage Wednesday morning in Southern California, storming a social services office in tactical gear and assault rifles, killing 14 at an office gathering before dying hours later in a shootout with police, speculation mounted that the pair left their ‘IED factory’ home hell-bent on jihad. Dressed in body armor and wearing GoPro cameras, Syed Rizwan Farook, 28, and Tashfeen Malik, 27, burst into the San Bernardino facility and shot up a conference room … Bomb squads working with robots swept the [couple’s] home late into the night Wednesday, and witnesses reported hearing several explosions… [their] vehicle also contained so-called “rollout bags” with multiple pipe bombs, as well as additional ammunition. The couple also had GoPro cameras strapped to their body armor and wore tactical clothing, including vests stuffed with ammunition magazines. ‘That’s a military tactic for a sustained fight’ …” Read more.
