This Can't Be True - And Yet It Is - Flight 93 Memorial To Islam

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.

The red crescent memorial to Islam on the Flight 93 crash site allegedly points to Mecca

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.

Your tolerance is an inspiration. It is no wonder Americans are loved the world over.

The world may love a doormat, but that does not mean I want to be one.

Well there's five minutes of my life I'll never get back. I was really enjoying your blog until I got to this post. You might want to research this a bit more.

You mean somewhere else besides the national parks service which is the department in charge of the monument? Where should I do my research? Any suggestions? I will certainly look at whatever you think is relevant.
