I got this in the email today too:

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of PanAm Flight 103,
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World Trade Center in 1993,
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon,
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Military Barracks in Saudi Arabia,
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassy in Africa,
REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE.
REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on the World Trade Center on 9-11.
REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks. Now the United States Postal Service REMEMBERS and HONORS the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a commemorative first class holiday postage stamp. I strongly urge you to REMEMBER to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp when purchasing your stamps at the post office. To use this stamp would be a slap in the face of all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom this stamp honors. I also strongly urge you to pass this along to every AMERICAN you know, whether by email or otherwise.

Yes, remember all the heroic AMERICANS who were killed in the World Trade Centre, and fuck all those people of other nationalities who also died in that attack. While we're at it, fuck the memory of those people who died in that other MUSLIM attack in Bali because not as many AMERICANS died in it, and fuck the memory of those people who died in that vicious CHRISTIAN attack in Oklahoma City and fuck too the memory of anyone who ever died in an act of terror not carried out by Muslims and/or who didn't have the decency to be an AMERICAN when they were killed. Good Christ, I was under the impression the enemy was terrorism, not Islam. And while the timing of the stamp could be construed as dubious ("Damn, we're at war with another Muslim country." "Yeah... hey, look at the calendar, there's some Muslim festival coming up." "Really? Let's put out a stamp to commemorate it..."), I'm somewhat more offended by the screed than by the stamp...
