Is that an "E" behind the flag ... or a Muslim crescent?   (Google)

(Newser) – It's an arc, it's an "e," it's a .... MUSLIM CRESCENT!!!! That's what panicked Twitterers shared yesterday when they spotted the tail of Google's "e" peaking out from its special Veterans Day logo, convincing several people that it was a red crescent beneath a "burning" American flag, notes Gawker. "Did anyone notice the Google search page? It has an American flag with a red crescent coming out underneath it," tweeted katnandu. (Click here for another Veterans Day oops.)
