Not many know that Jobs is a Syrian who had blood running down his body. Jobs’ biological father, who was born in the city of Homs is the third-largest city in the country. Homs is also one of the base resistance of Syria’s revolution until now still ongoing.
When young, father of Jobs lecture at American University in Beirut. He is Abdulfattah Jandali. Jandali met Joanne Carole Schieble, Jobs’s biological mother when they went to Wisconsin in the 1950s. Thus narrative Jandali on daily Al-Hayat. Five years have related and have children (Jobs) both of them take the bitter end. Hand over their son for adoption to other parents.
“If all, we did not submit Jobs. I still believe Jobs will be as famous as now. His brain is indeed thin. He did not graduate from college, but I think he will succeed in any field,” said Jandali again.
Jandali admitted he was not familiar with Jobs. Although he had several times to send birthday cards. “But none of us dared to get closer. I think if he (Jobs) wanted to see me he knew where to go.”
According to Jandali, Jobs knew all Arab blood flowing in his body but Jobs did not bother. He’s got his own attitude related to this. Jandali now 80 years old. He is a former professor of politics. Jandali currently lives in Nevada, he gets a position as one of the executives in Reno Nevada.
But both of them had never met. Jandali said, Jobs knew where he could meet him. “Many people know that Jobs bloody Syria, but he did not care for it. Jobs has his own attitude about his descendants, we known he’s a genius,” said Jandali.
Will the two exchanged greetings? Jandali said that he wants, but “This sounds weird but I was not ready. Even if we were on edge of death even though I think we are still reluctant to call each other,” he said.
Apart from this, Jandali admitted that he regretted giving Jobs to be adopted. “I do not know if Steve knows if the adoption was not my decision to take,” he said. “If I could choose the moment of course I choose to stay with Steven.”
