The Memorial Betrayal

Posted by Godefroi on October 14, 2007

I’ve been seeing a lot in the blog world about the Flight 93 memorial, and I’m aghast that whoever is in charge of this travesty has let it progress an iota.

The basics:

  • The memorial is shaped like a crescent (Islamic symbol)
  • One facing into it is facing Mecca (Islamic prayer direction)
  • This structure is called a mihrab, which is the central feature of a mosque (Islamic “church”)
  • The memorial’s “Tower of Voices” is a perfect sun-dial for Islamic prayer time

There is much more, which can be found here. In short, this memorial is not a testament to the Americans who died on Flight 93 while preventing it from reaching Washington. It’s an overt tribute to the “religion” that fueled the actions of the hijackers.

There are many of us who are trying to stop this mockery. See the “Stop the Memorial Blogburst” at Cao’s Blog and add your voice of protest.

Stop the Memorial Blogburst: Why only 38 Memorial Groves?

(Nod: Cao)

One prominently advertised feature of the Flight 93 Memorial is the “40 Memorial Groves,” one for each of the murdered heroes:

Why then does the actual design only contain 38?

Graphic of 38 groves

The Memorial Groves are built into the crescent of what was originally called the Crescent of Embrace. The crescent forms part of the symbolic heavens in architect Paul Murdoch’s crescent and star shaped design. Infidels cannot be memorialized in the Islamic heavens, so the 38 Memorial groves have to be a memorial to someone else. Who?

It is a simple geometric fact that a line across the most obtruding tips of the crescent of Memorial Groves points approximately to the White House:

A line across the Memorial Groves has the same slope (129° clockwise from north) as a line between the crash site and area of Washington DC that contains the Pentagon, the White House and the Capitol.

Notice also that the 38 groves can be seen as a set of 19 nested crescents. Take two groves away from the arc of 38 and a line across the tips of the remaining 36 will also point to the White House. Ditto for 34 groves, 32, etcetera, down to 2. One nested crescent for each of the nineteen 9/11 terrorists, each pointing to Washington, the specific target of the Flight 93 and Flight 77 terrorists and the symbolic target of all nineteen 9/11 terrorists.

Architect Paul Murdoch proves that he intends the 38 groves to be seen as a set of 19 nested crescents by surrounding the Tower of Voices with its own set of 19 nested crescents:

19 nested crescents in Tower array

The Tower array contains nineteen nested crescents of various lengths, some as short as two trees, the same as with the Memorial Groves. Using arcs as short as two trees long is Murdoch’s trick for hiding the number of nested crescents in the Tower array. It isn’t until one finds the 19 nested crescents in the Memorial Groves, where the shortest crescent is made up of only 2 groves, that one knows to count the pairs of trees as crescents.

The Tower array also contains four single trees, giving special recognition to the four Flight 93 hijackers.

If anyone wants to think that this is coincidence, that is fine. (If not for all the other Islamic and terrorist memorializing features in the design, it might even be reasonable.) But even if it is coincidence, the American people still need to know that the planned Flight 93 memorial does in fact contain two sets of 19 nested crescents, and decide for themselves whether it is okay that the memorial contain elements like this that can be interpreted as honoring the 9/11 terrorists.
