Remembering Nine-Eleven in a variety of ways
Woai.com ^ | 9/11/05

Posted on 09/11/2005 6:28:58 AM PDT by AmericanMade1776

- Today marks the fourth anniversary of Nine-Eleven, the attack on America by terrorist hijackers.

People are remembering in a variety of ways. President Bush attends services in Washington. New Yorkers pause this morning at the moments two jetliners hit the World Trade Center towers, 8:46 and 9:03, and again at 9:59 and 10:29 a-m, when the towers collapsed. More than 600 family members who lost brothers or sisters will read the victims' names. Last year the names were read by parents and grandparents.

In Washington there's a walk of remembrance. The Freedom Walk, as its called, goes near the Pentagon crash site.

And in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, where United Flight 93 went down, Senator Rich Santorum and former governor and homeland security director Tom Ridge are scheduled to speak.

Absolutely insulting! What will you do about it???
 
Final Design Announced
The design for the permanent Memorial for Flight 93 was announced on September 7, 2005 amid overwhelming support . .

So the mark of the Jihadists will forever emblazon our landscape. Is it time to cry for America yet...???????????? This design seems to be a fitting memorial for the Muslims who died aboard Flt 93. The hijackers whose ashes are fused into the shale with those of their victims, of all the shapes, in all of geometry, they pick the symbol of Muslim power, THE CRESCENT!!!

Why not a monument of the passengers beating the crap out of the hijackers?
 
"When it comes to a memorial, all mankind sympathizes," he said." The idea of the Crescent of Embrace, Murdoch said, is to be a gesture of healing and bonding.
 
Muslims didn't/don't sympathize - THEY consider this to have been a great victory!

This is like making a holocaust memorial in the shape of a swastika. Absolutely disgusting. I think is a slap in the face of every solider that is fighting terrorism now. And a shameful way to honor those that have died in this fight.

Recognize it for what it is....

A commemoration for those who bravely died in their fight to expand islam!

Fouad El Bayly, leader of the Islamic Center of Johnstown, said the crescent isn't a holy symbol, but one identified with the lunar Muslim calendar.

Thanks for posting these pictures. May God rest their souls!

On a related note, it seems to me from watching TV over the past week that there are many more specials (with footage of the crashes and collapses) than last year.

Anybody else remember what the coverage was like in '04?

Since this is not a numerologically significant anniversary the only explanation I can come up with is that the media did not want to remind people of 9-11 in an election year.
