‘Boycott stamp depicting Muslim holiday’

The US Postal Service recently decided to introduce a new postage stamp celebrating Eid. One US commentator is not best pleased:

“I am against those who use their extremist beliefs of their religion to attack people, entire families, destroy lives, homes, and countries in order to gain attention to their ’cause’. It is these people, these radical, rebel extremist, terrorists that thought nothing about boarding planes on 9/11 bent on destroying the United States and its people.

“Therefore, I am supporting a boycott of the issuance of this USPS postage stamp, and I urge everyone reading this column to do the same. Using this stamp would be like a slap in the face to those who have lost their lives at the hands of the very people this stamp now honors. Being politically correct can only go so far!”
