Muslims can earn goodwill by helping to stop the crescent plot, blogburst

Thanks to Error Therapy:

Blogburst logo, August 2nd

Al Qaeda's 9/11 sneak attack cast suspicion on all Muslims. After the hijackers hid amongst us, pretending to be trustworthy friends while plotting acts of war, how can we know that other Muslims are not doing the same?

American Muslims could undo much of this suspicion by helping to expose the terrorist memorial mosque that architect Paul Murdoch is trying to plant on the Flight 93 crash site.

Non-Muslim Americans can tell themselves that the Mecca orientation of the giant crescent is esoteric or unimportant (even if they go by semi-Islamic sounding names like Allahpundit), but every Muslim will instantly recognize this orientation as the central symbol of Islam.

Other Americans can also get confused about the direction to Mecca, thinking that the northeast facing crescent memorial CAN'T point to Mecca because Mecca is south of us. Not American Muslims, who all know that the shortest-distance direction to Mecca is to the northeast, since the overwhelming majority of them face this direction for prayer:

SmallMeccaOrientation
A person facing into the Crescent of Embrace (which remains completely intact in the "broken circle" redesign) will be facing almost exactly at Mecca (the Muslim "qibla," or prayer direction.)

Similarly with the Tower of Voices. Unbelievers can look up the minaret-like Tower and not recognize that the crescent projected against the sky is an Islamic crescent, but every Muslims will instantly recognize its specifically Islamic geometry (covering about 2/3rds of a circle of arc, with a circular inner arc):

Flight 93 Tower and Uppsala mosque

If American Muslims DON'T help to stop this al Qaeda sympathizing architect from building an Islamic memorial to the 9/11 terrorists, when many who are less familiar with Islamic symbolism are stepping up, what will it say about their loyalties? How can these fellow countrymen claim to not warrant the suspicion that al Qaeda has cast onto all Muslims if they will not help stop an al Qaeda attack that is more easily recognizable to them than to anyone else?

On the other hand, if American Muslims DO step up and expose this al Qaeda sympathizing plot against their new homeland, it will demonstrate that they ARE trustworthy friends.

This loyalty to America is what is what the rest of America wants to see. Is it what our Muslim countrymen want?


EVERYONE is encouraged to please sign our petition against the crescent mosque, and please come to Somerset PA on Saturday August 2nd to help Tom Burnett Sr. protest the crescent design.
