This report gives her name, Julissa Magdalena Maradiaga-Iscoa, and notes that she is Honduran. It gives no hint whatsoever that she is Muslim except that she “screamed at officers in what was believed to be Arabic.” In photos and video of the incident, however, she is wearing a hijab. This is nothing new — in fact, it’s commonplace for the mainstream media — but the Miami Herald does its readers a grave disservice by not fully informing them about what this really was, as does the FBI: “At this time there appears to be no nexus to terrorism,” said FBI special agent Michael Leverock.
Leverock means that Julissa Magdalena Maradiaga-Iscoa doesn’t seem to have ties to the Islamic State or al-Qaeda or one of the other jihad groups. For him, that means she has nothing to do with terrorism. This is because the FBI is bound as a matter of policy to ignore the fact that Muslims can be incited to violence against non-Muslims simply by reading the Qur’an — and even a false bomb threat can “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (8:60).

Julissa Magdalena Maradiaga-Iscoa attempted to drive her vehicle through the airport entrance, crashed her car into a Miami-Dade Police patrol car and screamed at officers in what was believed to be Arabic and then, in English — all before falsely claiming she had a bomb, according to authorities.
Miami-Dade police turned over the case to the FBI, which confirmed the federal charges against the 33-year-old Honduran citizen.
“At this time there appears to be no nexus to terrorism,” FBI special agent Michael Leverock said in a statement.
At about 4 p.m. Thursday, authorities at MIA shut down the upper level departure area around Concourse D as they investigated, calling it a “security incident.”
Miami-Dade Detective Alvaro Zabaleta said the woman was driving a silver Toyota in the upper level in the outer loop when she “made a right turn and drove through the inner loop making an intentional attempt to breach airport security by attempting to drive her vehicle through the airport entrance.”
Zabaleta said she then crashed into the police car. When officers arrived, she screamed and said she had explosives. The upper area was evacuated. A search with dogs turned up nothing….
