Yet another smiling face...
Our latest smiling Muslim -- Enrique Marquez, Jr. (a convert) -- seems to have gone above and beyond the call of duty to offer us not merely a Mona Lisa smirk, or a Crest toothpaste smile, or a secular grin, but a rictus worthy of Batman's Joker. A welcome addition to my photo gallery of Smiling Faces.
In the immediate aftermath of the San Bernadino massacre, law enforcement officials and news media learned that Marquez had purchased some guns for the the husband jihadist, Syed Farook -- but all news reports I read at the time indicated they didn't know he was a) a Muslim convert who b) had already been deep into jihading with Farook for years by that time. They clearly implied he was a hapless neighbor who didn't know what he was doing purchasing weapons for a man and wife. All the skinny on this (including little things like plotting mass murder in the name of Islam at Riverside City College and on State Route 91) may be gleaned, to one's unsurprised horror, in this official Criminal Complaint filed by Joel T. Anderson, Special Agent of the FBI.
