New Forever Stamp Commemorates Muslim Holiday- Fiction!

Summary of the eRumor:
This is a warning not to buy a U.S. Postal Service Forever stamp that appears to be a flower because it celebrates a Muslim holiday.
 

The Truth:  
This stamp is part of the U.S. Postal Service's new "Kaleidoscope Flowers" collection and has nothing to do with Islamic holidays.

A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:

NEW FOREVER STAMPS COME OUT IN JANUARY -- 46 CENTS BEGINNING 1/27/13.

Don't buy this stamp!

You must 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 !
