American director, political and social activist Michael Moore has started a campaign against US Presidential candidate Donald Trump who has called for a ban on all Muslims entering the country. Moore went outside Trump Tower in New York on December 17 and stood there with a placard saying “We are all Muslim”.

He stood there till the police came and asked him to leave, and later wrote a letter to Trump that he posted on his Facebook wall.

In his letter, he narrated an incident when he met Trump many years ago during a talk show where the now President candidate was all ‘jittery’ and ‘nervous’ about sharing the stage with Moore. He went on to criticise Trump on his ban-on-Muslims statement.

“Eighty-one percent of the electorate who will pick the president next year are either female, people of color, or young people between the ages of 18 and 35. In other words, not you. And not the people who want you leading their country,” he wrote.

Moore who asks Trump to ban him first if he wants to ban Muslims also added, “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.”

The director has launched a full-fledged campaign asking people to sign his letter, which he plans to send to Trump and also post pictures saying “We Are All Muslims” with the #WeAreAllMuslims hashtag on their Twitter, Facebook and Instagram timelines.

His letter has gone viral on social media and it has garnered massive support with people posting their pictures the placard.

          We are for safety of all human beings, nobody has a right to kill innocent lives senselessly. Do not justify their inborn act of violence and hatred.

            Lol, what a fool this Moore is! We are all Muslims? Just ask Sunnis whether they think Shias, Ahmadiyyas, Sufis etc are Muslim? Or ask the Shias their thoughts on Sunnis, Wahabbis, fis? I dont get these non-Muslim people. They dont know anything about this cult, but pretend that they are always morallu superior. Trump said it best, we dont know why these people are crazy enough to do the thinks they do. So the best solution is to keep them as far away from the rest of us as possible.
