Guess the Religion: Kansas Suicide Bomb Plot of “White” Muslim Airport Worker; “I’m a Slave of allah”

By Debbie Schlussel

A Muslim convert wanted to blow up a passenger terminal at the Wichita, Kansas airport. And NBC News reporter Pete Williams finds it necessary to point out that this guy is “White.” Read the Federal Criminal Complaint, consisting of FBI Special Agent Stephen Cousineau’s affidavit, in which the man describes himself as “allah’s slave.”



His skin color is irrelevant to the actual deciding factor for this and most suicide bomb plots: ISLAM. Terry Loewen converted to Islam. Not sure why his skin pigment entered the picture. Have you ever seen a media report on a suicide bomber, where it says, “Jajuan Tyrone Jackson, WHO IS BLACK,” was influenced by Islamic literature and apparently converted? Nope. ‘Cuz it’s only relevant when they wanna emphasize that the would-be-terrorist is not an Arab or Muslim immigrant. But how often does that happen? Not very (though it is on the increase, and I’ve written about it on this site).

Also, note that this guy attempted to use his airport security pass. I’ve written about that, too, and how the security screening by TSA is a joke and completely irrelevant, since it doesn’t apply to airport workers (here and here). And note that this “White” guy was egged on by FBI informants who invented the whole plot and made sure that what he thought were explosives weren’t. As I’ve repeatedly warned, there are plenty of cases of Muslim extremist airport workers, and the feds look the other way on them. They could just as easily entrap them for this plot, but they usually don’t choose to. That’s why they emphasize that this guy is “White,” as in non-Arab, non-Asian. And, finally, note that they never say this guy converted to Islam, only that he was radicalized by “Islamic material.” Um, when a guy talks about how allah wants him to behave and says he’s “allah’s slave,” it’s pretty clear he’s become Muslim. I mean, when was the last time you heard a Christian or Jew say that?

A 58-year-old airport worker was charged Friday with allegedly planning a suicide bombing at a passenger terminal at the Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in Kansas. The suspect, Terry Lee Loewen, an avionics technician who lives in Wichita, was arrested earlier in the day as he attempted to use his security pass to drive a vehicle that he thought contained explosives onto the tarmac at the airport, law enforcement officials said at a news conference in Wichita. In fact, the car contained only dummy explosives.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Loewen spent months developing a plan to drive a carload of explosives to the airport terminal and that he was determined to trigger the bomb himself and die in the blast. Loewen, who is white, became radicalized after reading extremist Islamic material on the Internet, Grissom said.

A criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Wichita charges Loewen with one count of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property by means of an explosive and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 3 p.m. local time. . . .

Investigators tell NBC News that Loewen has been under scrutiny since August, when he began having an online exchange with someone he thought was a like-minded individual but who turned out to be an FBI employee. “Let me preface the bottom line by saying I have become ‘radicalized’ in the strongest sense of the word, and I don’t feel Allah wants me any other way,” he said in one message, according to the complaint.

I’m not surprised that this al-schmuck’s Muslim name hasn’t been given to us. They don’t want us to associate Islam with this plot, when that’s the prevailing factor here. So, until we find out his Islamic name, I will refer to this guy in the future as Terry Lee Loewen a/k/a Mohammed Baba Ghanouj a/k/a the “White” guy (Al-Abyad).

From the Criminal Complaint, FBI agents quote Loewen:


He also left a suicide note:


This is jihad, plain and simple. No matter the skin complexion.

Yes of course. The dumbass using the handle Pete Williams wants to get the Timothy McVeigh narrative across at every opportunity. “Hey look people this isn’t a brown or black person plotting the murder of innocents. No, its one of those white raycists.”

Don’t you remember the report developed by Lesbionic Napalotano claiming that ex-military whites and NRA members should be included as possible future terrorists?

I’m just sorry he wasn’t sent to meet the 72 virgins.

Even when the media stops the playing “the guess your religion” game – they still can’t admit Muslim converts as extreme as the rest of them.

Where on earth did he get the idea Islam found the slaughter of kuffars praiseworth? I mean its the Religion like we’re repeatedly told.

And sad to say, its a miracle we’re lucky he was caught! There many more like him in the Great Beyond whose plots we don’t know about.

Anyone can convert to Islam obviously. Many have. In that sense race has nothing to do with it.

Why a White person would convert to a religion developed by nomadic Arabs wandering around in the desert is a different story.

It sounds like someone who failed at everything else he did during his life.

He became a Koranimal which ruined his life. Thankfully, he didn’t get the chance to ruin anyone else’s.

Speaking of Whites and Blacks, I notice that no domestic charges are being brought against George Zimmerman. Where are the nitwits who wrote all the off-subject comments about this a few weeks ago?

Remember Animal Farm? Four legs good, two legs bad.

Today it is dark skin good, white skin bad. And the sheep are having a field day.

I’m glad that authorities got this guy and nabbed him in a ASAP matter, instead of looking the opposite direction.

So the folks in the media are expunging that the exact information about this suspect that he was inspired by Islamic doctrines and culture and he, the suspect overtly claimed that he’s a “slave of allah” (which means god in the Arab language), but if let us say if the suspect were let us say Jewish or Christian and claimed that he’s a “slave of Yahweh” or a “slave of Christ”, the leftists in the media wouldn’t hesitate and play dumb and stupid and attempting to sugar-coat it!

Yes it is becoming a Fact-MUSLIMS are the terrorists. Suicidal Nuts. Why are people attempting to sympathize with these quacks. Especially Hollywood movies, lately the movie makers are always making these people the Hero, or trying to coax you to empathize with Muslims. Lame!

Big D on December 13, 2013 at 5:20 pm

Hmmm yes the religion. Let me think now, hold on, it’s coming to me….a little longer…, dang remind me again? My response to most whom I hear dance around it is in a slightly raised voice, “It’s the jihadists stupid!”

58 year old slave of stupid

Satan is having his last laughs, which is why the world is so upside down. We’re getting close, people. Prepare to die horribly, or to end up like the people in the letter Debbie saw on eBay. I just read that article from the archives.

So, he will do a lot of time in Federal Prison… I retired as a Federal Prison Chaplain, so what will happen to this guy upon conviction: 1) He will immediatly enter a strong prison “gang”, the Muslim contingent in virtually every prison. He will be protected and radicaliced even further. 2) He will use his position to radicalize other inmates. He will befriend other, shorter term inmates. Over the years he will bring dozens more to his way of thinking. 3) He will carry on his Jihad against the Prison System, undermining officers and forcing special counts for prayer during Ramadan. He will get special food as well. He may injure officers and will intimidate other inmates (especially Christians and Jews). Perhaps he will be sent to the special unit in Lewisberg. Watch for the lawsuits then from the likes of the ACLU.

During college I worked at a few different airports. Airport employees are a HUGE security loophole. While passengers getting on airliners receive invasive physical exams. Employees working on “the air side” fill out a form listing their name, SSN, driver license, address. If you are smart enough to avoid using a name that is on a terrorist watch list, has warrants, is wanted, you will get unsupervised access to airliners. If you work at an airport with no international flights security is similar to that at a shopping mall.

If you get a job that uses vehicles the come and go from the airport, such as catering vans, refueling trucks/tankers, crew vans, etc you enter the airport property with only the theoretical possibility of a vehicle/person search. While passengers are restricted to 3 ounces of liquid, airport employees are only limited by their imagination.

Did I mention that many of the jobs working on the air side are near minimum-wage and staffed by recent immigrants? Most of the jobs outside of the aircraft are outsourced to contractors. Employees hired by individual airlines receive much, much more scrutiny from their employer during the hiring process. It’s the other 75% of air side jobs that hold the most risk. Jobs like cabin cleaning, catering, and refueling give scary access to aircraft with little more background check than a driver getting a speeding ticket on the side of the road.

The FAA has been aware of this since before the PanAm 103/Lockerbie bombing. Employees at Miami Int’l were caught years ago smuggling cocaine via aircraft access panels on aircraft form Central/South America. This air side employee risk is orders of magnitude more dangerous than pre-Sept 11 passenger screening protocols.

No, it’s serious, Scott M and whoever’s reading this. But what the hell else can I say? In 11 months, you’ve all gotten to know a little of my personal life, some of my past history, that I coulda been a contenduh in the arena of pro sports, my IQ, medical conditions, my core beliefs, including a LOT about the “religious” aspect, so what’s left? So, whaddaya want, this is bitterly, sarcastically hilarious.

Read Scott M’s post. And notice how it has a sardonic comedy tempo to the writing. It’s masterfully done, and reads more like a rhythmic chant. And boy, does he get a lot in!!! I’m on commercial airliners ten times a year, averaging 33 hours in the air alone. I lose 3-4 days a year if you throw in travel to and from airports, time spent waiting in airports, boarding, waiting to depart and waiting to deplane, which is all in addition to the 33 hours in the air. Throw in hours spent at whichever abode, preparing to leave.

This is hilarious, because I’m one of the denizens at the airports, watching all this go on, being suspicious, being vigilant, watching everything, wondering, and just shaking my head. ROTFLMAO!!!

Satan is laughing his head off.

The gov simply must throw a whitey to the liberal wolves once in a while. And, you know, hey, we gots ta keep it “racially” balanced, regardless of the actualities. However, I don’t know if the liberals can survive the cognitive and emotional dissonance of him being a white Muslim. The love/hate thingy going on there could rip a liberal’s brain in half!

Pray Hard on December 15, 2013 at 10:27 am

NOT a lone wolf!!! Just because he doesn’t have an Al Qaida ID card foesn’t mean he acted alone. Every Muslim “lone wolf” is informally a part of global Islamic Jihad. Their orders come from Imams, web sites and other publications. They are willing to die, not because their girlfriend dimped them, but because they see themselves as Soldiers of Allah. Soldiers, as in a military organization. If we had any balls, we’d go after any Muslims that encourage these “lone wolves” to attack infidels in the name of Islam. But we don’t, so we won’t.

To the Federal Prison chaplin; All the muslims I met in prison were usually meek and a lot were cowards. I was in the Federal system for 4.50 years. Most kept to themselves.
