  1. A small world indeed, a Global village. Steve Job’s biological father is a Syrian-American Muslim. Read this news item:

    Abdulfattah “John” Jandali — Steve Jobs’ biological father — had no comment Wednesday on the untimely death of his world-famous son, with whom he had no relationship.

    Jandali, 80, a Syrian-American Muslim and ex-political science professor, had earlier expressed his regret for giving his son up for adoption.

    “I really don’t have anything to say,” said Jandali, vice president at Boomtown Hotel Casino and a former professor at the University of Nevada, Reno. “I know” the news.

    In an interview with The Sun in August, Jandali had expressed his desire to meet his son.

    “I live in hope that before it is too late he will reach out to me,” he said. “Even to have just one coffee with him just once would make me a very happy man.”
