There was rumor that Obama started this, but that is not true...however, this stamp IS in curculation!

USPS New 44-Cent Stamp Celebrates Muslim holiday. - Patriotic Resistance (http://www.resistnet.com/profiles/blogs/usps-new-44cent-stamp - broken link)

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!

By the way...the picture it has on it has a glittery blue butterfly, a glittery pink heart, and glittery purple Arabic writing on it. if you didn't look at it close enough, you would miss the Arabic writing...and it is written big.

Don't buy. If we can have stamps celebrating Jewish and Christian holidays, why not Muslim, and others? Enlighten me.

Yea!!!!...Let's honor these remarkable moments forever engaved in our memories...

To use this stamp would be a slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa !

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001 !

REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!

The website squarely targets certain kind of audience. I don't fit that profile. It also conveniently skips the fact that Eid stamps have been issued for at least a decade. Here's the 2001 version (http://criostai.files.wordpress.com/2007/12/eid_stamp.jpg - broken link). But, like I said, website like those are designed for some very special people.

Now, they're free to not buy it. It doesn't stop America for respecting its foundation built on tolerance and respect for ALL religion. Nuts can't change that. So they find these pockets to whine and cry.

People are mad becasue, right now..this moment, they see all muslims as THE ENEMY. Not one of them would have said a word a few years ago. In fact, none of them did.

If a cop kills his wife are all cops bad?

Yes, that is true and obviously needs to be repeated here, as often as possible.


and as for this 'boycott' business.: It is a commemorative stamp, available only on request.

Don't want one, don't ask for one, it is the easiest pretend "boycott" ever. duh.
