Hmmm . . . Luggage From Amsterdam Explodes in America, But No Way It’s Muslim, Right? (Gotta Be a Wiccan Terrorist)

By Debbie Schlussel

So, let’s see.  Luggage on a plane from Amsterdam–the same departure point from which Islamic terrorist undiebomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab flew–blows up in a Texas airport.  Gotta be Wiccan or Zoroastrian terrorists, right?  The Religion of Peace would never ever do such a thing.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Police Detonate Suspicious Bag at Bush Airport: Ground crews reported small explosion in luggage

HOUSTON – A reported small explosion in a bag at Bush Intercontinental Airport led officers to detonate a piece of luggage, airport officials said.

It all started while airport ground crews were removing luggage from a flight that just arrived from Amsterdam.

According to the Houston Airport System, it was around 2:15 p.m. Tuesday when a “pop” was heard and smoke could be seen coming from a suitcase. Crews had already offloaded the luggage and placed it on the tarmac when the smoke was seen.

I’m sure it was a “moderate” Muslim bomb. That’s why it was only a “minor” explosion. No worries.

Probably a test run.

Have I died and gone to Hell? This stuff is becoming bizarre, if not surreal.

Sorry, Debbie: you’re wrong. It was obviously the work of a white guy who has a problem with Obamacare.

DS_ROCKS! on May 4, 2010 at 7:00 pm

    Wrong she doesn’t have it wrong, it was a muslim terrorists. Not all terrorists are muslim, but all muslims are terrorists

“Gotta be Wiccan or Zoroastrian terrorists, right?” Nah, it must be those Baal followers. They were just trying to find a substitute for passing their first born through the fire and came up with this.

Worry01 on May 4, 2010 at 7:05 pm

Its just an “isolated incident.” Repeat after me, Debbie: NO terrorist incident happened, period.

Don’t expect the FBI to look into it too closely.

NormanF on May 4, 2010 at 7:15 pm

Fortunately, there was no detonation other than that created by the water jet from the bomb department and there was nothing explosive in the luggage.

Michael on May 4, 2010 at 7:24 pm

Hi Deb!

I was just telling a mutual friend of ours today at lunch how grateful I am that you cover these low-profile news stories. Thanks to you, I have a much keener eye for them when I make my round on news sites.

The number of airliners that return to their gates due to threatening letters found in lavatories and/or unruly passengers amazes me. If you keep a keen eye on the news, these events occur (by my guestimate) about once every other week if not more. I think I sent you a news tip on one just last week.

Like waiting for the other shoe( bomb) to drop.

Have you noticed that since zerobama has made appealing to islamics his MAIN CREDO, all this stuff happens MORE AND MORE.

What was it osama said about respecting a strong horse????

Well zerobama is as weak as that tiny a mini-horse who is about 16 iches high and black and white too.

    “Have you noticed that since zerobama has made appealing to islamics his MAIN CREDO, all this stuff happens MORE AND MORE.”

    Yes. I’ve noticed.

There’s no way someone traveling through Amsterdam would ever want to set off a bomb on an aircraft coming to America. No terrorists ever travel through their airports (lol). Perhaps the news media got it wrong – maybe it was a bong, not a bomb. You know how much the Dutch like their cannabis. 🙂

Jarhead on May 4, 2010 at 8:12 pm

Will the Mayor of Houston be on CBS tonight blaming a member of the Tea Party who is so disgruntled with ObamaCare that he flew to Amsterdam to buy some primo pot?

Bonzer Wolf on May 4, 2010 at 8:20 pm

HELLO!! This whole thing is a non-story. Nothing actually happened.

Michael on May 4, 2010 at 8:30 pm

I am waiting for the usual rot about concerns from the ever-clueless authorities (TSA, ICE, etc.) about whether the culprit, if Muslim, had ties to “extremists,” or acted alone. What these dunderheads do not understand is that all of these Muslims committing acts of jihad terrorism are merely following the Islamic command to wage war against unbelievers, most relevantly Jews and Christians, and to kill and be killed in the service of Allah, until Islam dominates the world. This warfare is obligatory, open-ended, and must be waged regardless of what infidels do, or don’t do, vis-a-vis Muslims. No amount or manner of appeasement will change this. Whether individual Muslims act alone or in concert with other co-religionists is largely irrelevant, in a sense, as they all have commonality in Islam, carrying out its manifesto of war against us. All Muslims belong to one organization – the umma al-Islamiyya. And this organization, whose offshoots include al-Qaeda, Hamas, Fatah, al-Ikhwan, and countless other terror and Muslim supremacist groups across the globe, is the enemy of our civilization.

As Michael Said, non-story. No bomb.

clintk on May 4, 2010 at 10:16 pm

Deb’s ‘I’m sure it was a “moderate” Muslim bomb’ comment had me LMAO. Some pretty funny replies here too. You folks work for Comedy Central or something?
The biggest joke however is how the government and media treat these situations…well, biggest but not funniest by a long shot. We’ve been lucky for too long, and it’s gonna catch up sooner or later.

theShadow on May 4, 2010 at 11:11 pm

Those tea-bagging rednecks and opponents of the healthcare bill just will not stop will they?

It amazes me how Napolitano has not had a press conference on this “little” incident. If this had exploded while the plane was in flight, I can only imagine what would have happened.

Thanks DS for letting us know the “real” truth the current adminstration only suppresses.

Pat on May 4, 2010 at 11:17 pm

Well I think there probabably alot of angry white males in Amsterdam who are angry over the Arizona immagration…oh wait, er I mean over Obamacare not that, wait what the hell are these white males , most likely in their mid 40s angry about. Maybe they got a lousy meal on Amsterdam Airways

Steve on May 4, 2010 at 11:28 pm

    Those tea party people are your every day hard working people who work hard for their money, these are lawyers, Dr’s, Senior citizens, police officers, etc..who are fed up with the Governments over speading and the they are running this country. And forcing this joke of a health care bill down the throats of the American people, even though a majority of the American people didn’t want it. But does Obama care NO!! you must be one of those obsessed, kool aid drinking obama whorshipers..Some advise stop drinking the kool aid..

    Can’t wait until Nov so We The People can VOTE THEM OUT!!! and in 2012 Obama will be voted out. I still resent him apologizing for the American people, bowing to an Arab king. Obama is a Socialists/Markists.. If I wanted to live in that type of a country I’d move to Cuba..

    Teresa on May 5, 2010 at 12:10 am

>Sorry, Debbie: you’re wrong. It was obviously the work of a >white guy who has a problem with Obamacare.

Bawahahaha! Oh my gosh, Dr. Rocks, that is such a good one!!! I guess Bloomberg hasn’t hit the news circuit about this one yet. Give him time .. maybe he will put his other foot in his mouth.

Leah on May 5, 2010 at 2:01 am

I wonder when Americans will realize that we really are not safe in the hands of Obama and his delusional cohorts?

pat on May 5, 2010 at 2:03 am

I wonder if a muslim will win that $260 million mega-lotto jackpot?

DR.ROCKS! on May 5, 2010 at 2:29 am

Dear Debbie —

I assume that suitcase did not present its ticket, passport
and whatever ID was needed — there must be a name (real or fake)of the person who turned in that bag. We need the full
story. Don’t expect our pro-Islam gov’t to follow up. They
probably “knew” it was not a terror act even before the suitcase came to their attention.

Otto Schaden on May 5, 2010 at 7:52 am

If it was just a small popping sound it could be a fake-bomb, the airport security does these drills with bombs to have dogs and personel sniff m out (ocasionaly) these small devices get thrue. It is a bomb ofc but without a charge, merely a detonator with smoke.

Carny on May 5, 2010 at 8:29 am

Who is moderate or an extremist ? remember they
both believe in JIHAD.
But we learn from bad experiences & bad events
Thanks to his action the world get tough on security
& we end up paying for it !

Jacqueline Hanna Youssef on May 5, 2010 at 9:46 am

This was called a NON event?

ward on May 5, 2010 at 10:11 am

I need the sideshow from Norman Blitzer on this one. What’s the verdict, Blitz-man?

BB on May 5, 2010 at 12:01 pm

You did read the ‘update’ to the original story, right? No bomb, nothing, just an accident from an overheated suitcase on a tarmac. But your readers will all assume it’s a coverup anyway, so why bother?

Kilkee on May 5, 2010 at 4:07 pm

    Yes read it all. How many bags begin to burn up at airports spontaneously? Do you read about things like that everyday? If it was just an accident, I would not be too quick to gloat. Is a serial killer to be praised because they have not managed to slash a new throat on a given day? That is your paltry logic in action.

    sorrow01 on May 5, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Well arn’t you a RACIST!!! Do you still have slaves..or even better you probably think Mexicans are stealing our jobs too.

AJAI on May 5, 2010 at 6:32 pm

    AJAI – I’m sure no one posting here owns slaves. Why don’t you check out the muzzie countries – they still practice slavery as well as many other horrid practices (bestiality, pedophilia, beating women for no good reason, …)

    And if I am a racist for saying that illegals are stealing American jobs, you are a friggin nut job. Don’t give me this horsesh#t about these illegal invaders doing jobs Americans won’t do. There are way too many incidences of illegals being arrested, losing their jobs, and then the jobs are staffed by Americans. We need to irradicate the infestation of America by these illegals more proactively. The new laws Arizona has for dealing with illegals is way to lax and doesn’t go far enough.

    Jarhead on May 5, 2010 at 7:03 pm

Maybe it was that infamous Pakistani Muslim, Cho Seung-Hui.

chuck on May 5, 2010 at 6:55 pm

@: Teresa on May 5, 2010 at 12:10 am
You do realise that many of the comments here are sarcastic in nature and don’t really represent the posters view? The whole tea-party midle age white christian anti-obamacare thing was started by NY mayor MyCool Bloomers…er ..Michael Bloomberg.

And still no mention of who the suitcase belonged to? That kinda’ speaks for itself.

AJAI, How do you go from self combusting luggage to illegal aliens?…but, notice how capitalist hating liberals seem to have no problem with hiring illegals at slave labour wages, but then support unions that force capitalists to pay outlandish wages for mediocre work and…oh, wait a second, I’m trying to make sense out of liberalism, silly me…nevermind.

…and anyway,
where is Blitzer???
