New Forever Stamps are in Arabic!!! Why????
Apparently they think that putting "hearts" and "butterflies" on the new stamp will make most people NOT realize that the rest is Arabic.

Why should we as Americans support this?

Scroll down to see the pictures of the stamps.

One stamp is a new Christmas stamp, the other, a custom stamp created by zazzle.com

If the USPS puts out stamps for Christmas, why should they not put them out for other religious holidays?

Re: New Forever Stamps are in Arabic!!! Why????
Thanks for bringing that to my attention. But that is even worse! The stamp was created in 2001!

Before or AFTER 9/11???

"The EID stamp commemorates the two most important festivals - or eids - in the Islamic Calandar: Eid Al-Fitr and Eid Al-Adha. On these days, Muslims wish each other "Eid mubarak" the phrase found in Islamic calligraphy on the stamp."

"Eid mubarak" translates literally as "blessed festival, and can be paraphrased as "May your religious holiday be blessed."

So, has anyone seen any of these stamps floating around since they were created 10 years ago? I haven't.

The newest stamps have US ships on them.

So, maybe this year will be their first holiday release?

Re: New Forever Stamps are in Arabic!!! Why????
The last time I got a book of stamps, I asked for the Liberty Bell. She said they don't make them anymore. That people were tired of them.

Then offered me the new ones with an American flag on one side, and Statue of Liberty on the other.

The 20 cent stamp is George Washington now.

So, if they come out with the new Arabic stamp this Christmas, and I add a George Washington to it... to me that would seem STRANGE!

The old 20 cent stamp was a goat, so I'm glad they got rid of that.

What do you mean $$$$ talks?

I believe if the stamp has the price .44 it's not the forever stamp.

Hopefully they have another option that those.

Re: New Forever Stamps are in Arabic!!! Why????
In the summer of 2001, the U.S. Postal Service began sales of the first postage stamp honoring the country's Muslims. There are nearly 7 million Muslims living in the United States, and this stamp was issued to commemorate the two main Islamic holidays. Thus, it is properly known as the "Eid Stamp."
Eid is a generic Arabic term that means "holiday" or "festival." Islam recognizes two holidays, specifically known as Eid al-Fitr (Festival of Fast-Breaking) and Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice). The Arabic script on the stamp says Eid Mubarak, or "Blessed Festival." This greeting can apply to either of the two celebrations.

The artwork for the stamp was done by renowned Muslim American calligrapher Mohamed Zakariya of Arlington, Virginia.

The stamps were originally issued in 34-cent domestic rate, and have since been re-issued several times, most recently as a 44-cent stamp in September 2009. Despite email rumors, the stamps pre-dated the 9/11 attacks, do not "honor" terrorism, and were not issued at the behest of President Obama. Rather, the stamp is part of the Postal Services' "Holiday" stamp series, and has been issued for the past eight years.

How did 7 million Muzzies get here? Send them back to their desert. They can not assimulate to the West, and we don't want Islam here. So go home.

There are millions of Muzzies in the US.

If they dont fuck with me, I could give a shit about a stamp.

I dont have to buy the thing and no Muzzie group gets the proceeds.

This doesnt even register on my radar as anything but bullshit.
