No I wouldn't. The writing is pretty obvious.

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center!

...
REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!
Remember the US napalming a little girl in Viet Nam.
Remember Lt. Calley.
Remember the Mai Lai massacre.
Remember overthrowing duly elected governments throughout the world.
Remember the School of the Americas where the US taught torture techniques.

Wanna play tit for tat?

Let's talk about xian churches:
Remember the rape of hundreds or thousands of young children.
Remember the crusades.
Remember their support of the Nazis, yes the Pope is a former Nazi.

Shall we go on?

I for one will never buy it to support them....time to invest in a lifetime supply of the "Forever Stamps" with the Liberty Bell on them!

That's a bizarre post at resistnet -- the woman says she saw the snopes page, then goes on to reprint the lying email anyway.

Old habits die hard, I guess?

Here's the snopes page (just so you know for sure, even though the resistnet woman doesn't ):

snopes.com: Muslim EID Stamp

Lol. "The issue of 'boycotting' a stamp that commemorates Islamic holidays is largely moot, since EID stamps are generally a specialty item sold only to postal customers who request them."

What sort of malicious beasts would prey on frightened, susceptible people that way? What pleasure is there in spreading lies?

This is not even worth an infraction so "ill try to be nice .

This is a nation of freedom, not submission, our laws were founded on Judeo Christians Bible that is in contrast to sharia laws . I do hope you are living in iran and not here though .

The Bible got less violent and more tolerant with time the quran got more violent and less tolerant with time .

You people are dinosaurs. The US is turning mocha. There is nothing you can do about it.

Sorry, you aren't part of the plan (whites only whites)

REsistnet should have been the red flag from the beginning. Not a credible website

How about the Americans that are Muslim? Is it a slap in their face?
