"This stuff some sources sling around about America wanting to stay out of the war and not wanting to fight is a lot of baloney! Americans love to fight, traditionally."
General Patton, 1944
Anyone following the Flight 93 "Crescent" memorial, filled with Islamic symbolism, probably wouldn't be shocked by anything coming out of the Flight 93 Memorial Project, nevertheless Alec Rawls finally brought them to affirm their actual agenda.
The fact that the Circle of Embrace is really a broken circle means two things. First, it means that the giant crescent is still there. Architect Paul Murdoch always described the Crescent of Embrace as a broken circle. Our circle of peace was broken on 9/11, with the unbroken part of the circle, what was symbolically left standing in the wake of 9/11, being the giant Islamic shaped crescent.
Adding an extra arc of trees that explicitly represents a broken off part of the circle leaves the unbroken part unchanged. What is symbolically left standing on the Flight 93 crash site is still a giant Islamic-shaped crescent, still pointing to Mecca.
At the Memorial Project meeting last summer, however, Alec Rawls was able to pigeon-hole Memorial Project Manager Jeff Reinbold and Deputy Superintendent Keith Newlin.
“You can’t just say it was ‘the flight path’ that broke the circle” Rawls admonished. “This is a story of human action. So who did it? In your depiction, who is breaking the circle?”
“The passengers and crew,” said Reinbold.
“But the circle is a symbol of peace,” Rawls continued. “Who broke the peace? It was the TERRORISTS who broke the peace on 9/11.”
Reinbold countered that that the circle is also a Druid symbol, and a Christian symbol.
“But it is still a symbol of peace,” said Rawls, especially as the Memorial Project is using it, with the circle being broken on 9/11, “so who breaks it?”
“It was the passengers and crew,” Newlin repeated, elaborating that: “They are the one’s who brought the plane down.”
This is not at all surprising when you understand the cultural mindset that of postmodern liberalism. The moral equation between all forms of violence, regardless of the source or the context is here. So is the elevation and the celebration of the culture and beliefs of the enemy.
The construction of memorials that do not actually memorialize the dead as persons or remember the courage of their virtues, but instead try to make some sort of abstract statement about the world and the act that killed them, has become commonplace.
But Jeff Reinbold's explanation of the Flight 93 Memorial has yet another side to it. Our side.
In the view of the Memorial Project, it is the passengers and crew who broke the circle. When Reinhold talks about them breaking the peace, the equation between the symbol of Islam and Peace is fairly clear. To the Dhimmi, Islam means Peace. To the Muslim, Islam means Peace through Submission.
Where the circle symbolizes wholeness and completeness, when it is broken what is left behind is Islam. A shattered mockery of peace.
The "peace" that the hijackers sought to impose on the Flight 93 passengers and on America, was the "peace of submission", the Peace of Islam. When the passengers and crew fought back against them, they broke the peace. They broke the Islamic plot to fly Flight 93 into the White House by fighting back.
Breaking the Peace can be a great thing indeed, because there are two kinds of peace. There is the peace with security that comes from a vigilant citizenry. And there is the peace of submission that comes from surrendering to your enemies. The passengers and crew of Flight 93 did indeed break that second kind of peace, a false peace, just as the crescent is a false circle.
They broke the peace by choosing to stand up and fight back. Just as America chose to break the peace by taking on the likes of Hitler, Stalin, Osama and Saddam. We could have stayed where we are doing nothing. Instead we chose to resist. We chose not to submit.
The Crescent is a blood red scar on our landscape. A reminder of the ravages of Islam and the domestic treason of the Dhimmis who cry peace, while embracing the terrorists. It is a reminder of what must be done to blot out the evil that it symbolizes. A scar that can only be removed when the terrorists and their aiders and abettors are removed as well.
What, drawn, and talk of peace! I hate the word, As I hate hell... Canker'd with peace, If ever you disturb our streets again, Your lives shall pay the forfeit of the peace.
There is no peace in Islam or with Islam. There is only a false peace that must be broken by resisting the enemy, an example that the Flight 93 crew would set by refusing to do what so many others have done across the world, bow their knees to the blade of Islamofascist terrorism.
When Britain deported Geert Wilders, they kept the peace... just as Neville Chamberlain kept the peace when he turned over Czechoslovakia to Hitler. "We have brought back peace for a generation," he proclaimed, when all around him the war had already begun.
It was this sort of false peace that the passengers and crew broke. It is why the Project 93 gang will demonize them for breaking that false peace with Islam. It is an old argument among Americans.
Many thought Patrick Henry had the last word roughly 234 years ago, when he said, "Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! ...What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!"
The passengers and crew of Flight 93 did it his way. Like many of those in America and across the world who have fought for liberty and civilization, they died. They died breaking the peace of tyranny and slavery. They refused to submit and in doing so broke the peace.
Here is to those who keep oaths and break peace. Their true memorials are not carved in stone or earth, but in true and brave deeds. And greatest of all is that final knowledge that they were willing to do what so few are, to risk their lives, rather than bow their heads.
May we one day live to see the Crescent of Islam broken, in Pennsylvania and across America and the world.
