American Muslims are in the most vulnerable position they've experienced since the wake of September 11th. In fact, by according to a number of reports, the hatred and fear of Muslims in America (often referred to as Islamaphobia) has reached a height never before seen in modern America. This can be attributed to a number of factors, including the Paris terrorist attacks and the mass shooting in San Bernardino. However, much of the Islamaphobia has likely been caused by the fiery, demagogic rhetoric of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump. Trump recently suggested that, as President, he would create a registry of all Muslims in the country for national security. He then went on to say that he would bar the entry of all Muslim immigrants for a period of time. This, naturally, inspired the ire of the Muslim community and those who deem tolerance and acceptance important attributes. Among those voices is filmmaker Michael Moore, who recently requested that concerned citizens sign a petition of solidarity with Muslim citizens, along with an impassioned plea for rationality and open-mindedness.

On his Facebook page, Moore wrote, "We are all Muslim. Just as we are all Mexican, we are all Catholic and Jewish and white and black and every shade in between. We are all children of God (or nature or whatever you believe in), part of the human family, and nothing you say or do can change that fact one iota. If you don't like living by these American rules, then you need to go to the time-out room in any one of your Towers, sit there, and think about what you've said." Moore ended his post "...leave the rest of us alone so we can elect a real president who is both compassionate and strong," before linking his statement denoting the "We Are All Muslim" moniker.
