Does this bother you?
This is a replica of a stamp the U.S. Postal Service issued on Sept. 3. If the calligraphy on it looks a little funny, it's because it's a Muslim stamp.
The U.S. Postal Service has issued several Muslim stamps, starting with a 34 cent stamp in 2001 (remember what happened on Sept. 11, 2001?) and again in October 2002 as well as a 41-cent stamp in 2007.
According to truthorfiction.com, the stamp commemorates two important Islamic celebrations. They are Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. On these days Muslims greet one another with "Eid mubarak," which translates as "blessed festival."
Muslims are the fastest-growing segment of U.S. society. There are more than 200,000 alone in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. There are two factions of Muslims -- law-abiding peaceful Muslims and radical sect that are responsible for terrorist bombings on U.S. soil, a U.S. embassy and a U.S. Navy ship.
Have a problem with this?
