Ft. Lauderdale Airport Terrorist Converted to Islam, Identified as Muslim Years Before Joining Army

While the official story from authorities is that the Ft. Lauderdale airport gunman is a mentally ill Hispanic Army veteran named Esteban Santiago, who became unhinged after a tour in Iraq, information is slowly trickling out – thanks to our friends Pamela Geller and Judicial Watch – that links the Ft. Lauderdale Airport shooter to radical Islam.  

Geller reports that Fort Lauderdale Airport terrorist Esteban Santiago registered on MySpace under the name “Aashiq Hammad” and recorded Islamic religious music on the site, 3 years before he ever deployed to Iraq as Ft. Lauderdale airporta U.S. soldier, destroying the lying mainstream media’s narrative that he was just a mentally disturbed veteran and that “Islam had nothing to do with it.” 

This is pertinent information that the Obama administration apparently wants to keep quiet, bringing up memories of the Benghazi cover up, in which the president and his cohorts knowingly lied to conceal that Islamic terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission in Libya say our friends at Judicial Watch. 

Only one mainstream media outlet that we could find mentions Santiago’s “jihadist identity,” burying it in a piece about New York possibly being his initial target.  

A paragraph deep in the story mentions that investigators recovered Santiago’s computer from a pawn shop and the FBI is examining it to determine whether he created a “jihadist identity for himself using the name Aashiq Hammad…” 

The rest of the establishment media coverage promotes the government rhetoric about gun control and veterans mental health that omits any ties to terrorism, even though early on a photo surfaced of Santiago making an ISIS salute while wearing a keffiyeh, a Palestinian Arab scarf. 

The public records uncovered in the days after the massacre suggest Santiago (Hammad) is a radical Islamic terrorist who is seriously committed to Islam. Besides taking on a Muslim name, he recorded three Islamic religious songs, including the Muslim declaration of faith, the Shahada: there is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.  

He also posted a thread about downloading propaganda videos from Islamic terrorists on a weapons and explosives forum. The investigative news site that unearthed this disturbing information connected the dots between Santiago, who is of Puerto Rican descent, and Hammad, an identity he created in 2007

In 2015 Judicial Watch obtained records from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) that show an Al Qaeda terrorist who helped plan several U.S. attacks lived in Broward County and graduated from the local community college with a degree in computer engineering.  

His name is Adnan G. El Shukrijumah, but he also had a Hispanic identity, Javier Robles, and for years he appeared on the FBI’s most wanted list.  

Further, back in 2012 Judicial Watch reported on the demands of the Council on American-Islamic Relations’, a terrorist front group, that Broward County public schools close twice a year to celebrate Islamic holy days, illustrating the influence that Muslims have in the region. 

This week a prominent Ft. Lauderdale businessman and longtime resident addressed a letter to the city’s mayor and commissioners blasting county and federal officials for covering up that “Aashiq Hammad, not Esteban Santiago, attacked our city and county.”  

The businessman, respected Ft. Lauderdale real estate entrepreneur Jim Morlock, specifically names Broward County’s elected sheriff Scott Israel, Florida senator Bill Nelson, the first to identify Santiago as the shooter on national television, and congressman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, ousted last summer as Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair over a scandalous plot to damage Bernie Sanders during the primary. 

“Since when does a US Senator (Bill Nelson), not law enforcement, be the one to so quickly release this terrorist’s Hispanic name but nothing about his more relevant Islamic background?” the letter asks. “Obama must have told Sen. Nelson to keep this from looking like a Muslim Terrorist attack during the last 12 days of his watch. Bad for his legacy.”  

Morlock goes on to state that it’s “better to portray this atrocity as white Hispanic Alaskan mental Iraq war vet gun violence.” The real estate entrepreneur proceeds to reveal that Santiago lived within walking distance to the only mosque in Alaska, was radicalized before he entered the military and was knowingly allowed to serve despite his Islamic sympathies thanks to “Obama’s PC military.” 

The letter poses interesting questions, including why this Muslim terrorist chose Ft. Lauderdale out of all the nation’s airports and who Santiago knows in Broward county, which has a large and growing Islamic community.  

There is now a blanket of silence over the arrest of Aashiq Hammad (Santiago) for the Ft. Lauderdale terrorist attack. However, considering Judicial Watch’s well documented information about the growth of the jihadi threat in the Ft. Lauderdale area, it is time the news media began to ask questions about Aashiq Hammad and his Islamist background, associations and motives.

Muslims in armed services

I firmly believe we have many great Muslims in our country but they are not devout and practicing individuals.
Every practicing Islamist must be subjugated to the Koran and Sharia Law ... That clearly means that Islamic’s must annihilate (by whatever means and however long it takes), reject (not obey) any set of laws (our country’s Constitution, laws and the legislative and enforcement systems) and all non-Islamic entities not subjugated as they are.
To do so, all forms of lying, cheating, subterfuge, breaking of contracts, deception, murder, killings, terrorism and any anti-Biblical means that brings honor and glory to Allah (Satan) are praiseworthy to all Islamist. Hence Obama (a not so covert Muslim) and his peers will never critique or condemn those actions unless it is a form of deception to pretend they are offended while inwardly rejoicing and supporting such actions.
Simply put, while many may deny it, every Islamist is a warrior and at war (to some degree) with every non-Islamist.
