A Missouri Philatelist Says The War On Christmas Is Underway At All US
Post Offices


During the

War Against Christmas
, I`m surprised that
philatelist and letter writer Jerome Van Dyke didn`t
mention that the

Eid stamp
issued by the United States Post Office
celebrates two Muslim holidays,

Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha
, both nowhere close to
Christmas.

Ironically, even though Muslims
don`t believe in Christ, the U.S. government sees fit to
honor Islam with what is in effect

a Christmas stamp
.

This is political correctness gone
crazy. If it had not been for a Muslim write-in
campaign, the stamp would never have been considered. [US
Muslims Push Stamp as Symbol of Acceptance
,

Laurie Goodstein, New York Times, November 21,

Here`s what all Americans should
remember if the post office tries to sell you an Eid
stamp: the Muslim bombings of

Pan Am Flight 103
, the
World
Trade Center
, U.S. Marine barracks in

Lebanon
, military barracks in

Saudi Arabia
, American

embassies
in Africa,

the USS Cole
and

9/11
.
