'Nuclear Summit Logo Uses an Islamic-Shaped Crescent' - Alec Rawls

This is an excerpt from the blog, Error Theory, by Alec Rawls, Tuesday 4/13/2010
It is hard to believe that the State Department could do this by accident:


An Islamic crescent is a very distinct and completely unnatural geometric shape, created the intersection of two circles. This is done on basic religious principle, to make the Islamic crescent distinct from a lunar crescent and from the lit portion of any other globe in orbit around a sun. To take a natural shape like the crescent moon as a religious symbol would risk idolatry (the worship of any actual thing besides God). Thus Muslims use as their symbol a stylized and explicitly unnatural crescent shape.

So why is this unnatural crescent shape being used as an official State Department logo for Obama's Nuclear Security Summit? There is not a Muslim in the world who would miss the symbolism here:

Obama, Hu, et al with NSS10 logo, Ron Sachs photo
World meeting, called by a United States president who makes a point of reminding the Islamic
world that his middle name is Hussein, presided over by a large Islamic-shaped crescent.
(Photo by Ron Sachs.)

Logos always use stylized shapes, but surely the State Department is aware that this particular stylized crescent shape is the closest thing Islam has to a universal insignia. (Wahabbists reject even the unnatural circle-in-circle crescent shape as idolatrous, making the only truly universal symbols of Islam the Koran, the declaration of faith--recited in the 5 times daily prayers--and the facing of Mecca for prayer, but none of these are graphic symbols.)
There is more to the story and it is important. Read the rest from the source. Alec Rawls' "About Me" bio is also an eye opening read. - AW

In Russia government make media say what they want - even if lie.

This is one of the most idiotic things I have seen from the idiots known as Republicans...anyone with a brain and half-an-ounce of smarts knows the Bush Administration were the ones who designed the logo - the logo represents, for all of you uneducated and ignorant Republicans who couldn't handle basic science in High School the inspiration for the logo is actually the Rutherford-Bohr Model of the atom. But since you people have nothing REAL to get angry about, you make sh*t up (like this nonsense, and that he is not an American citizen and other such infantile B.S.) and the YOU GET MAD ABOUT stuff YOU MADE UP!!! Mind boggling...well the damage from eight years of Dickchehneyism is readily apparent and you fools love to see our country in trouble, other wise you wouldn't vote for the crooks (Dickcheneyism) who screwed up our country. Thanks KNOW_NOTHINGS!!

Why, thank you for sharing, Anon. Please furnish the documentation that this was the design of the Bush administration. Whatever smarts I have, I don't have that knowledge by any revelation
