LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — The U.S. Postal Service has dedicated a stamp recognizing Islamic Eids.
Eids are festivals important to the Muslim faith.
The stamp contains a phrase in Islamic calligraphy, which translates to “May your Eid be bountiful.”
The postal service says it decided to introduce this year’s stamp in Louisville because it was the birthplace of Muhammad Ali, who was Muslim.
“Today is a day of celebration, because what the U.S. Postal Service is doing, is they’re giving us the opportunity to educate the world about Islam, that Islam is a religion of peace, as Muhammad Ali said often,” said Donald Lassere, president and CEO of the Muhammad Ali Center.
The two most important Eids will be celebrated on July 6 and Sept. 12 this year.
The postal service has been releasing stamps to commemorate the Islamic holidays since 2001.

What’s missing from the story?
Oh, yeah… the race of the young looters.
According to the latest reports from police, at least 17 incidents were reported after a group of approximately 200 teens began robbing and assaulting people Saturday night.
Police say it started around 7:45 p.m. when the teens gathered near the entrance of the Big Four Bridge.
That’s where police say 12 teens assaulted and robbed a 13-year-old girl, as well as a man who came and tried to help her.
Officers broke up the crowd, but shortly after that, there were more problems in the downtown area.
Police say once the large group left Waterfront Park, 70-80 teens were reported to be causing a scene at the White Castle on 1st Street. Nearby, a woman reported a group of teens assaulted her while she was parked in her car. Police say her two children were in the car with her, as the suspects repeatedly punched her and threw trash cans at the car.
A group then raided Bader’s Market on South 1st Street. Police say they took items off the shelves and assaulted the clerk as he tried to close the doors on them.
Police were then called to three separate assaults on 5th and Broadway, 6th and Broadway, and 3rd and Chestnut. Each victim in those assaults had to be transported to the hospital.
Police say this is not common for Louisville, pointing out that crime rates in downtown Louisville have dropped in recent years.
On Monday, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer addressed the problem, telling the teens their behavior was unacceptable.
In the aftermath of the catastrophic 2012 election, given that Obama has clearly established his unfitness for his position, many have been wondering just who the hell would vote for the guy. The answer:
According to Louisville police, [Tracy] Browning went to the Valley Station Walmart and tried to purchase two iPads with an Electronic Benefit Transfer card. When the transaction was denied, she assaulted a store clerk, pushed another employee to the ground and fled from the store with the merchandise.
Investigators say Browning went to another Walmart in the area a short time later and again attempted to buy several iPads with an EBT card. She was apprehended at the scene while attempting to flee with the merchandise.
Any liberals want to explain the moral difference between this behavior and empowering Obama to redistribute other people’s wealth?
Cultural debasement and government dependency are turning us into a nation of Tracy Brownings.
A Louisville anesthesiologist has asked a Frankfort court to bar President
Barack Obama from the November ballot.
Dr. Todd House — who is running
for president as a write-in candidate with his wife, Suzanne Dudgeon House as
his vice presidential candidate — filed the lawsuit Aug. 10 claiming that Obama
is not a “natural born” citizen, which is required of presidential candidates by
the U.S. Constitution.

If you’re in Louisville this week, you might want to wear a jacket. It gets pretty cold being in UK’s shadow. Little Brother put up a good fight, but in the end it wasn’t enough to trump the superior talent of the Cats. The most impressive thing about this win was how different it was from the first game in December. Kentucky was outrebounded 37-32 and allowed 16 Louisville offensive rebounds. Terrence Jones and MKG were absent early, but the pieces came together for a great win.
MVP goes to Darius Miller who flashed that four and done talent with 13 points just when we needed them. Anthony Davis showed that POY swag with 18 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks. Celebrate big tonight, Cats fans, but keep your eyes on the prize. It all comes down to Monday now. We’ll have the post game link and a full recap shortly.
