Earlier today, Drudge Report correctly pointed out similarities that exist between the new logo of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency (below left) and the logo used by the presidential campaign of Barack Obama (below right). It’s another design similarity, however, that deserves more attention and should spark more outrage among Americans.
The design of the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pa. (below left), is almost identical in appearance to the Islamic crescent moon and star symbol (below right) — yes, the same iconic symbol adorning the flags of no fewer than 11 Muslim countries around the world today.
Nine days after reading about it in NewsBusters, I began sharing my feelings with the world Oct. 6, 2007, in a post about the controversy surrounding the Flight 93 Memorial. Since then, I’ve been trying to draw attention to the memorial that’s allegedly intended to honor the heroic passengers aboard United Flight 93. I use the word “allegedly”, because it appears the memorial’s design is paying homage to the Muslim terrorists aboard Flight 93 instead of the passengers.
Visit the NPS web site for the memorial, and you’ll be challenged to find any imagery that shows an overhead view of the site. Same goes for the private Honor Flight 93 web site set up by the folks raising funds to help pay for the site. Apparently, the people involved in the project recognize the design similarities. In addition, however, they don’t want members of the general public to see a “bird’s eye” view of it — lest they get upset like I did.
Before you contact your elected officials in Washington, D.C., to express your outrage, learn more about this insult to the real heroes aboard United Flight 93 that day almost nine years ago, read my other posts below which appear in chronological order:
