The mainstream media has reported the following regarding the mass murderer at the Fort Lauderdale airport: His name is Esteban Santiago. He was in the US military and has psychological problems. There is, however, another side to the story. His Islamic name is Aashiq Hammad. He participated in the creation of jihadist music a number of years before being deployed by the US military to Iraq. He has been pictured in ISIS and Palestinian garb. The only bag he brought with him to the Fort Lauderdale airport was the one that carried the murder weapon. Why has the MSM failed to report this additional information?
The FBI has reported that ISIS is in every State in the union. During an 18-month period from early 2014 to mid-2015, federal and local authorities arrested nearly 70 individuals connected with ISIS, including refugees and US citizens. Some of the American individuals not arrested were killed fighting for ISIS. On average, there is now one daily jihad terrorist attack somewhere in the world. When will the MSM do a thorough analysis of the American and Western world ISIS and Islamic terrorism situation?
Jihadists have been arriving in Mexico, primarily in Nuevo Leon (about 130 miles south of the Texas border). They are working in conjunction with Mexican drug cartels and plan to attack American cities and ports of entry along the southern border. At this point, the Jihadists are training and waiting to be given orders to strike the American homeland. Since Korans and other Islam related paraphernalia have been discovered in the American desert, it is obvious that the open southern border has been breached and an unknown number of ISIS, al queda, and jihadist operatives are already in the country. Where is the investigation by the MSM?
It appears that everything possible is being done to minimize the connections of terrorist actions to ISIS and Islamic jihad. The distortion and suppression of any Islamic terrorist connection is a phenomenon not just in the USA but in European nations as well. The MSM appears to be operating out of fear and in collusion with the various Western governments. In far too many instances, individuals who decry the situation are portrayed in the MSM as right wing fanatics, Islamophobes, or racists (even though Islam isn’t a race). Those who complain have been arrested, fined and even imprisoned for speaking out.
The departure of the Obama administration portends an opportunity for the truth of Islamic jihad to be presented and discussed. It is hoped that the MSM will operate free of the prior restriction that portray actions like those at the Fort Lauderdale airport as madness when they actually have distinct connections to ISIS.
