It was just a hobby: Enrique Marquez, a former neighbor of Farook, told investigators he and his friend previously built pipe bombs, law enforcement officials said.Marquez said he had nothing to do with...

He also boasted, one official said, that if he had made the bombs they would have gone...

    Suisun City, California-AP -- A Northern California sheriff is calling it "domestic terrorism."

They received 5 Shekels [slightly over $1] to throw them. Who is ready for such a thing to happen to their son or his family?
