Another wacko conspiracy theory

Crescent of BetrayalThe planned crescent-shaped “memorial to heroes” of Flight 93 in Pennsylvania is nothing less than a huge outdoor mosque that pays homage to Islam, charges the author of a new book.

Alec Rawls’ Crescent of Betrayal: Dishonoring the Heroes of Flight 93, published by World Ahead, documents a long list of Islamic and terrorist memorializing features in the Flight 93 National Memorial.

The primary feature, he says, is the giant central crescent of what originally was called the “Crescent of Embrace” design. A person facing into this half-mile wide crescent – still present in the superficially altered “Bowl of Embrace” redesign – will be oriented almost exactly at Mecca.

That is significant, Rawls said, because a crescent that Muslims face to point them in the direction of Mecca – called a “mihrab” – is the central feature around which every mosque is built.

Yes, that’s the same World Net Daily who brought you the “Muslims eat children” revelations.
