Petition blasts "Islamic crescent" at Flight 93 memorial site

A group of concerned citizens has been raising alarms about the Islamic elements planned for the Flight 93 Memorial near Shanksville, Pa., for years. And a member of Congress has demanded the National Park Service make changes in its plans.
But there's been no substantive response, and now the activists say it's time for the American people to let officials know whether they want to pay for a memorial with a crescent that points to Mecca. The opponents say the configuration comprises a "mihrab," the foundational point for every Islamic mosque. It also includes a tower designed like an Islamic sundial and 44 memorial glass blocks, one each for the passengers, crew and terrorists aboard Flight 93.
