Farook’s Hispanic friend
Based on this NY Times story, he seems like a loser with a low IQ and not a jihadist. I don’t think he deserves to be prosecuted for any serious crimes. But unfortunately, the authorities are looking for some scapegoat, especially one who doesn’t look like a religious Muslim.
It looks like he converted to Islam because he had a bunch of Islamic friends and submitted to peer pressure, and not because he’s a true believer or anything like that. I think that a few years ago I mentioned the phenomenon of Hispanics converting to Islam. People with low IQ and low impulse control are often looking for an authoritarian religion that tells them what to do.

Note the part where the friend received a cash payment for a sham marriage to some Islamic girl from Russia so she could immigrate to the United States. We really need to crack down on these immigration violations.
