REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103! REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993! 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! Now the United States Postal Service REMEMBERS and HONORS the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a commemorative first class Holiday postage stamp. Bull! REMEMBER to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp When purchasing your stamps at the post office. 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.

Hey.... Remember the crusades! (11th-13th centuries) Remember the Salem witch trials, conducted by the puritans. Remember the Spanish Inquisition. Remember the settlement of the white man in North America and the subsequent attempt to convert the natives to Christianity through force, threats and violence. Remember Manifest Destiny. Remember the missionaries who refuse to provide aid to war-torn or natural disaster ravaged areas (like Hindu villages in India's southern Tamil Nadu after the 2004 tsunami), because they refused to convert to Christianity. These are examples of some of the worst atrocities committed by fanatical Christians. There are numerous other examples of purges of infidels and executions of heretics throughout history. Not to mention the various conflicts and wars just between the various branches of Christianity (such as between the Protestants and Catholics and the "peasant war between the Catholics and the Lutherans). Fanaticism, in any religion, is dangerous, and millions of lives have been lost in every religion. Boycott the stamp if you must, but don't hold up your own religion as a symbol of purity, because Christianity has blood stains on its hands as well.

These incidents did not happen over a short period of time. These other incidents, some which show that the perpetrators were not true Christians, occurred within centuries. Besides Christians are supposed to spread the gospel, but not to use violence. You are just trying to make the attacks on 9/11, and the Marine Barrack, etc. seem not as offensive by holding up the wrongs of those who called themselves Christians, but were not.

the atrocities performed many years ago had nothing to do with modern people the only ones living in the past are the muslims if the would have advanced to the 21 century all this would not have happened !

...the dark spirits will use groups.. We can be on guard against things without dislike.. Although, in all fairness, to warn others may not mean the person calling out the warning, particularly hates the group being currently used by dark forces (fallen angels) that they are warning about.. - Yet I also believe the best defense a nation has against its enemies "entering their land" as the bible puts it, is to be a "Godly" nation - right now the U.S is almost 50/50 - half (who are at least) seeking to please God and the other half, seeking a society shaped after another philosophy (or rather a mishmash of many philosophies I call "mystery babble").. but as the generations go on, and more and more become under the sway of the public educating and philosophy shaping going on... Well, let's just say, when a nation pleases God (the supreme power and Great Spirit of all Life, the Father) no enemy can touch them.. but when a nation forgets their God (and worse) the "enemies will enter their land.."

There would be no peace if we would be unrighteously vindictive. We have laws and we have the appropriate government agencies to take care or pursue the offenders. We should let law over and above man but of course we should do whatever we are supposed to do to help enforce the law.

I think it's a mistake to bring out a stamp like this, when the wounds are still so fresh. I agree with MSV and we need to bring out stamps then for every religion,to make it fair. Why is the very religion that is threatening to destroy the free world being constantly catered to?

I am not American, but I do not think that using this stamp is the right idea. You should have a stamp that commemorates the sacrifices made by the troops who gave their lives, not for a stamp that honors a religion who proselytes through conquest and not by building missions as we Christians did, or by being nice as the Buddhists did, or showing a morality in a wave of immoral nations as the Jews did..

Sorry to be rude or Hash but whats your own grudge or scores with the Muslim.. Sometimes its so hard to understand why people cause problems for others and themselves.. Where you there?? Sure you heard that from the news, Sis, you need to learn how to stay off from issues that causes one to loose his or her life, You know the war or riot that came cause of the CARTOON Christain did about the muslim, Then use that to compare the gravity of what you are saying.. So times you let the sleeping dog be or stay away from Bingo's bone.

The extremist sect of islam is the dangerous one, not the rest of the muslims. The same can be said about the fanatical christians. As stated before by many people here, you cannot condemn a whole religion for the actions of a smaller percentage of them. Also, you may not realize it, but the freedoms in America are slowly becoming stripped away from the civilians because the government can do that.

Not all Muslims did these crimes just as not all Christians were involved in the wars in Ireland and in Syria and not all Jews were responsible for the attacks on US warships. We do no good by attacking ALL followers of a religion for the actions of a few.
