“It’s almost as though it’s intentional”

I just received an email from Ummah News Links regarding the controversial Flight 93 Memorial:

PITTSBURGH – The father of a Minnesota native killed on 9/11 wants his son’s name withheld from a memorial over concerns that its design is centered around Islamic symbolism.

Tom Burnett Senior says he didn’t want to make the request but that nobody would listen to his concerns.

Burnett’s son Tom Burnett Junior died when Flight 93 was hijacked and crashed into a Pennsylvania field. The younger Burnett went to high school in Bloomington.

He called the crescent a well-known, widely accepted Muslim symbol that doesn’t belong in a memorial honoring the 40 passengers and crew members who were killed on Sept. 11, 2001, in their efforts to thwart an attack on the capital. post-gazette
