Subj:.....U.S. Islamic Holiday Stamp (S559)
          From: rfslick on 10/5/2007

This U.S. postage stamp commemorates the Islamic holidays of Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha.  The EID postage stamp was introduced by the United States Postal Service as part of their Holiday Celebrations Series on 1 September 2001, just ten days before the September 11 terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.  The EID stamp has since been reissued at updated first-class postage rates in 2002, 2006, and most recently in September 2007.

Others may find the the issuing of this stamp as mistake considering the seven attacks on U.S. planes, ships, and buildings (including the Trade Center in New York) by Muslim extremists.  I find it a refreshing example of USA's religious tolerance.
