Tribute to Islam in Somerset County, PA

Do you remember September 11, 2001 when Muslim terrorists hijacked flight 93? The plane crashed in a field in rural Pennsylvania when heroic Americans fought against the hijackers and 40 people died in the crash.

For some reason, the memorial that is being built on the site as a tribute for the victims of this terrible incident is actually designed to honor their terrorist murderers instead. A red crescent??


Give me a break! Isn't this like building a World War II memorial in the shape of a swastika?

Reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Thanks to Bunnie Diehl for pointing this out.

This kind of stuff will only enflame passions on both sides. I'm sure the talk shows will get hold of this and make it into something that (perhaps?) was not intended. Even so, to use a popular euphemism, "It sucks!"
