Crescent of Embrace

A design has been selected for the United Airlines Flight 93 memorial in Pennsylvania. I didn't have any relatives or friends on that flight and I understand from the article that some family members were a part of the committee that made this selection. I would hesitate to challenge or criticize those who lost loved ones in that crash, especially when considering the bravery shown by the passengers who sacrificed their lives to keep that plane away from Washington. In light of the Islamic nations' and terrorist organizations' flags shown below, I really am having trouble understanding the selection committee's thinking. First, the memorial design.

Now, take a look at these flags of Islamic nations and terrorist organizations.

Why would the selection committee adopt the worldwide symbol of the religion which sponsored the killers and in whose name their loved ones were murdered?
