Non-USPS Stamp custom made by Zazzle.com
New forever stamp came out in January – 46 cents started 1/27/13.

Don't buy this stamp! Please pass this on.

46 cent Forever Stamp - Apparently they think that putting hearts and butterflies on the new stamp will make most people not realize that the rest is Arabic and probably NOT something we want to support. The new stamp, the second MUSLIM stamp!

USPS New 46-Cent Stamp Celebrates a Muslim holiday.
If there is only ONE thing you Forward today. Let it be this!

President Obama has directed the United States Postal Service to
remember and honor the EID muslim holiday season with a new
commemorative 46 Cent First Class Holiday Postage Stamp.

REMEMBER to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp if/when you purchase stamps at a post office. All you have to say is, "No thank you, I do not want a Muslim stamp on my letters!"

The Flag of the USA has always been my favorite.

Pass this along to every Patriotic American you know Get the word out!
Honor the United States of America !
 The Truth:

There are U.S. Postal Service (USPS) stamps commemorating the EID season during the Muslim period of fasting and prayer known as Ramadan. There are also customized stamps from other vendors that contain a USPS barcode for mail. 

This Rumor has a habit of going viral every time the U.S. Postal Service raise the price of a first class stamp or during the Ramadan season.

In late January 2010 rumors began to circulate that the U.S. Postal Service released a new version of a postage stamp commemorating the EID Muslim Holiday. In 2011 the USPS issued a new version of the stamp, which sparked another fury of emails to circulate the Internet.

Each of the terrorist events has either been connected to or believed to be connected to Muslim terrorists, but the most common question we get is whether the postage stamp story is true. 

According to the United States Post Office website the stamp has had several issues in various denominations spanning from 34 cents in 2001 to 41 cents in 2007. The latest release was announced August 12, 2011 with a "Forever" denomination, which means that its value will remain constant with any increases in first class postage.

Non Government Issue

The postage stamp illustrated below was not issued by the USPS but by the Zazzle.com web site that sells custom made products, including postage stamps. The web site has a variety of EID stamps and also permits customers to upload personal photographs for custom apparel, mugs, postage stamps and gifts.

Earlier Official US Postal Service Releases:
According to the U.S. Postal Service, a 34-cent stamp was issued in September of 2001 and October of 2002 commemorating two important Islamic celebrations or eids. They are Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha. On those days, Muslims greet one another with "Eid mubarak," which translates literally as "blessed festival." The phrase is written in Islamic calligraphy on the stamp.
