The Unfortunate Case:
SC: ISLAMIC STAMPS
Robert Little, Spartanburg Herald-Journal, 10/29/06
I am greatly disturbed about the U.S. Postal Service supporting Islam with stamps recognizing two Islamic holidays. We just purchased two from a post office in Spartanburg. One postal worker didn't even know about them.
Why is the U.S. Postal Service giving this kind of support to this group when there are Islamic extremists who would like to see this country wiped off the face of the Earth? We should boycott the stamps. Would you please write about this disgraceful stamp supplied by the U.S. Postal Service?
ASK POST OFFICES TO STOCK EID STAMPS
CAIR is asking members of the American Muslim community to contact local postmasters and request that they stock the stamp commemorating Eid ul-Fitr and Eid ul-Adha that were re-issued on October 6, 2006, as part of the "Holiday Series." In past years, there have been reports that the Eid stamp was unavailable in some post offices.
1. CONTACT your local postmaster TODAY to request that he or she stock the "Eid stamp."
2. BUY AND USE Eid stamps for all your mailing needs.
Post offices may be located and stamps may be ordered through the United States Postal Service website.
Eid stamps may also be ordered by calling 1-800-STAMP-24.
