Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo wants the Interior Department to reconsider the design of a memorial to the victims of 9-11 whose hijacked plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.
The Republican lawmaker thinks the design called "Crescent of Embrace" could be a problem because of the crescent's use as a symbol in Islam. The hijackers were Muslim.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations says Tancredo's comments are, "a cynical political ploy designed to gain national attention." It's calling on President Bush and other Republican leaders to repudiate them.
The White House isn't commenting.
The shape of the memorial is a circle broken by the flight pattern of the plane and includes a chapel with 40 metallic wind chimes.
Earlier this summer, Tancredo angered Muslims and others by suggesting that the United States could "take out" Muslim holy sites if Islamic terrorists launched a nuclear attack.
