The National Park Service was given the solemn task of designing a memorial to commemorate the brave victims of Flight 93 - hijacked on 9/11 by Islamist terrorists.

Coincidence? Or a symbol of Islam?
To honor the passengers and crew who fought the Islamist terrorists, keeping them from flying that jet into yet another American landmark, the design chosen to honor these Americans is built around a foundation of Islamic symbols. The Islamic Crescent Moon is only one of those symbols. Along with the gigantic Crescent, the entire memorial is aligned, geographically to face Mecca. In fact the setup is such that it creates a huge Mosque.
Note the alignment to Mecca.
Alec at "Error Theory" says, "A commentator on my blog (Yoel Natan) pointed out that a crescent that people face into to face Mecca is called a mihrab, and is the central feature around which every mosque is built."
I could copy everything these folks have posted, but it's better if you go, read, get peeved, and then go comment! Always On Watch has info. Mike's America has info. Error Theory has the biggest compilation that I have found.
Folks, some unacountable NPS individuals have seen fit to create a Memorial, ostensibly to honor dead Americans, but in fact to honor the cult that killed them. Even after an outcry, the design changed scarcely at all. This is an outrage! Go! Read! Send your comments to the people involved, and to the ones who can change this before it's too late! We do not need, or want, a memorial to Islamist Terrorists in our country.
