"I don't understand how you can read the Qur'an and the sunnah of the Prophet (saw) and not understand that jihad and the implementation of Sharia is absolutely demanded of all the Muslim Ummah."
On this point, Loewen and I are in full agreement. The Qur'an and the Hadith are perfectly clear that Muslims must wage jihad and violently subjugate non-Muslims. Fortunately, most Muslims don't take the Qur'an and the Hadith seriously. Nevertheless, as long as some Muslims remain faithful to the commands of Allah and Muhammad, there will continue to be terrorist attacks. And as long as our leaders refuse to acknowledge what Islam clearly teaches, jihadists like Loewen will continue to have security passes at airports.
Wichita—A Wichita man has been charged in federal court with attempting to explode a car bomb at Wichita Mid-Continent Airport, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Friday.
Jihadist Terry Lee Loewen
Terry Lee Loewen, 58, was charged in a criminal complaint filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Wichita. He faces one count of trying to use a weapon of mass destruction, one count of attempting to damage property and one count of attempting to provide material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization, al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, based in Yemen.
Loewen, who worked as an avionics technician at the Hawker Beechcraft Services facility at the airport, Beechcraft confirmed, is alleged to have spent months developing a plan to use his access card to airport grounds to drive a van loaded with explosives to the terminal.
Authorities said he planned to pull the trigger on the explosives himself and to die in the explosion. . . .
According to an affidavit, Loewen:
• Studied the layout of the airport and took photographs of access points.
• Researched flight schedules.
• Assisted in acquiring components for the car bomb.
• Talked about his commitment to trigger the device and martyr himself.
The complaint quoted an Aug. 5 communication in which he told the FBI employee, “As time goes on I care less and less about what other people think of me, or my views on Islam. I have been studying subjects like jihad, martyrdom operations, and Sharia Law.” He was also quoted as saying “I believe the Muslim who is labeled ‘a radical fundamentalist’ is closer to Allah … than the ones labeled ‘moderates’. Just my opinion; if I’m off base, please set me straight.” (Continue Reading.)
