Storm Track Appeasement: U.S. Postage Stamp Celebrating Muslim Victory to be Issued

It seems the U.S. Postal Service is getting into the appeasement act. They will issue a new stamp celebrating the Muslim holiday of EID as part of their Holiday Celebration Series.

Greetings! And Happy Holidays from Allah to you.

The Holiday they are celebrating with this Muslim stamp is EID. And what is EID? I’ll let my eloquent co-host, Always on Watch, speak to that.

The Battle of Badr of March 17, 624, is one of the few military conflicts specifically mentioned in the Qur'an and holds a great deal of significance in Islam. Eid ul-Fitr, the final portion of Ramadan and which the lighting of the Empire State Building will recognize this weekend, has as its origin the aforementioned battle. Furthermore and most importantly, this battle marked the turning point for Islam, both politically and ideologically.

Having earlier fled to Medina along with followers who accepted him as their prophet whereas most of the tribes of Mecca did not, early on that morning in 624 Muhammad got word that a rich Quraish caravan from Syria was returning to Mecca. He therefore assembled the largest army he had ever been able to muster, some 300 men, with the original intent of raiding the caravan. After his men successfully overtook the caravan and brought back the booty, Muhammad then conveniently received a new "revelation" from Allah — a "revelation" which not only included rejoicing in having captured an enemy's caravan but which also called "proved" that Muhammad had been preaching the true way all along. Fulfilling Destiny, Muhammad and his forces proceeded to trounce the Quraish as punishment for having earlier rejected the prophet's teachings. From this source:

In other words, victory at the Battle of Badr proved to Muhammad and his adherents that Islam should from that time forth take on a militant aspect because such is the will of Allah.


I guess to the U.S. Postal Service a holiday is a holiday even if celebrates that “Islam should from that time forth take on a militant aspect because such is the will of Allah.”

Is this what the Christmas Season has degenerated to?

  • WC,
    "Eloquent" am I? I like that! :^)

    You'll note from the USPS link that it was first issuec on September 1, 2001. How ironic is that? We all know what happened 10 days later! And yet the USPS still offers the Eid stamp. Ugh!

    There are at least two different Eids--Eid ul-Fitr, as I mentioned in my posting to which you linked, and Eid ul-Adha, a variation of the Old Testament story of Abraham's willingness to obey Jehovah to the point of sacrificing Isaac (Jehovah intervened); in the Muslim version, Ishmael was the chosen one nearly sacrificed. Hmmmmm....

    BTW, some Arabs with whom I met in October said that my take on the importance of Eid ul-Fitr as the beginning of militant Islam was exactly right. Why is the USPS celebrating such a date???

  • "Why is the USPS celebrating such a date???"

    I e-mailed them that. Still no response.

  • Richard,
    I doubt that you'll get a response--unless you get some letter telling you what a bigot you are. I got such a letter from the White House, although the bigotry part wasn't stated blatantly. Still, I got the message.

    Or maybe I am too sensitive? You can read the letter HERE, along with my acerbic commentary.

  • At least you got a response from Iman Bush. What a lame reply but I would expect no less from the dhimmified White House. Hopefully soon Islam will be banned here in the US as Germany just banned Scientology. I agree that islam is a threat to our Constitution and therefore should not be protected by it. That was my view on LGF which got me banned.
