"Memorials" From America-Hating Leftists

How is it that people who hate the United States have such a huge part in memorializing Americans killed in terrorist attacks? It was just a few days ago that I posted on the abomination that is to be part of the "memorial" in New York City. Now we have the obscenity of a giant Islamic crescent to be used as a "memorial" to those murdered onboard Flight. 93 in Pennsylvania. Charles Johnson has been writing on the Flight 93 "memorial" here and here. Read the articles to which he links.

Zombietime has an excellent demonstration that clearly shows that this is, without doubt, to be an Islamic crescent. Flight 93 Memorial Project

Included on zombie's page is "an azimuthal equidistant world map centered on the location of the Flight 93 Memorial which seems to indicate that the crescent is oriented toward Mecca" created by "Etaoin Shrdlu". That is the picture that you see at the top of this post. Were this to be shown on a Mercator projection we would see the great circle route.

Take a look at the PowerPoint presentation used by Paul Murdoch Associates (the architect that designed this obscenity) and see if you don't think that the Tower of Voices isn't a minaret.

In a post at Little Green Footballs, zombie writes:
Listen up:
The final decision on this memorial has to be approved by The Secretary of the Interior, Gale Norton. I don't agree with some of her policies, but right now we need to set that aside and go straight to the top. Even if every intermediate decision-maker approves of the design, she can veto it. She has the final word.

Let her know that this is completely unacceptable. Gale Norton is one of the most conservative members of Bush's cabinet, so I think she will truly understand why this memorial is unacceptable.

You can send messages to her at the Department of Interior email address

Or use the Web contact from (sic) on her Web page.

Phone and snail mail for her office:

Phone: (202) 208-3100

Gale Norton

Do it today!
Is this any way to remember them?

As it stands now, the memorials to victims of the attacks of Islamic terrorists on 9/11/01 in New York City and Pennsylvania are mockeries. At least the Pentagon Memorial is respectful.
