Flight 93 Appeasement Mosque

L.A. architect Paul Murdoch's controversial Crescent of Embrace seems poised to go ahead in Shanksville, PA, as a terrorism-honoring, Mecca-oriented crescent:

The Project's last public meeting was the unveiling back in September of Paul Murdoch's winning Crescent of Embrace design, with its half-mile wide Mecca-oriented crescent. It is very likely that Saturday's meeting is to announce that Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton has given final approval to Murdoch's design, based on the insignificant design changes announced in late November. The design is now called simply The Flight 93 Memorial instead of The Crescent of Embrace, but the half-mile wide Mecca-oriented crescent is still there, as are all of the other Islamic and jihadist design elements of the original Crescent design.
Error Theory shows that Murdoch's redesign still appears to be a tribute to mass-murdering terrorists, not to the memeory of the brave passengers of Flight 93 that said "let's roll," and forced down a plane destined for Washington, D.C.

This must not stand.

Please do.

Just click on the bold words Error Theory or the phrase terrorism-honoring, Mecca-oriented crescent in CY's original post. They are both links to the Web site.

Communications have been sent. Didn't take that long, folks. Get those cards and letters flying.

Thanks for the assist Yank. It looks like we are going to get at least several people from Western PA going to the meeting to distribute information about the Mecca orientation of the original crescent, the fact that the original crescent is still present in the redesign, and the fact that a crescent that people face into to face Mecca is the central feature of every mosque.

All the reporters who have covered the Flight 93 memorial have been sent this information and been asked to look at it so what they will know what people are objecting to. A couple of them seem pretty interested and willing to be fair. We might finally get the Mecca orientation of Murdoch's crescent onto the newswire, which could blow the lid off all his Islamic and jihadist design elements. Got a chance anyway.
