I agree ...

"A Pennsylvania preacher has vowed to fight the new design for the proposed memorial honoring passengers of Flight 93 who were killed when their hijacked flight crashed in Pennsylvania on 9-11. The 'Crescent of Embrace' design centers on a mile-long semicircle of red maples surrounding the point of impact, but Baptist minister Ron McRae argues that it resembles Islam's symbolic crescent moon and star. He calls the design 'a memorial to the terrorists who killed those people, not a memorial to the folks who died there,' adding, 'They wouldn't dare put up the Ten Commandments or the cross of Christ, but they're going to put up a red crescent.'"

I haven't yet figured out how a semicircle will "surround" the crash site. But, I agree! The monument should not even hint at Islam, by design or accident.
