Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia doesn’t see anything particularly Christian about a cross. It commemorates war dead equally, regardless of religion, thinks he.

Imagining his feelings about lying dead under one of these.

And here’s another place where Google and the internets lets me down. There are very few photos of Muslim cemeteries on the internet. I can’t find a real answer to the question, “What’s on a Muslim headstone?” other than the ones in US military graveyards. I found no pictures of graveyard monuments honoring Muslim war dead.
