I thought this was a sick joke, but if it is, our national park service is in on it as well. I went there to learn more about the design of the memorial and discovered that they are indeed going ahead with the red crescent design. As I am sure you are aware, a red crescent is the symbol of Islam. We have for example, The Red Cross, whereas the Islamic version is termed The Red Crescent.

Work has begun on Phase I of the permanent memorial. Read the weekly update and learn more about what will be completed this year. The site will remain open to the public during construction. Hours are from 9AM-7PM in the summer and 9AM-5PM in the winter. View our construction webcam provided by the National Park Foundation.This hideous monstrosity brought to us by Paul Murdoch Architects.
