HUH?: Asheville, NC Residents Pay For “Holiday” Billboards Welcoming Muslims, Aliens

By Debbie Schlussel

Who are these bleeping morons–the 250 people who paid $3,500 for “holiday” billboards welcoming Muslims and illegal aliens, er . . . “immigrants [who] make us stronger?”  And let me say as you read this, “Rabbi” Eric Solomon, you do not speak for me as a Jew.  Apparently the intellectually-challenged (and sanity-challenged) “rabbi” wants America to be like France, where Jews cannot walk the streets of Paris without risking kidnapping, torture, and death from Muslims a la Ilan Halimi (of Blessed Memory). True, there are Christian clerics involved in this dumb interfaith effort on behalf of lawbreakers, invaders, and jihadists. But I get especially angry when my ignorant, destructive fellow co-religionists assume the role of kapo extraordinaire.


Shukran [“Thank You” in Arabic], Moronowitz! DhimmiSchmuck “Rabbi” Eric Solomon Promotes Muslim Immigration to US

Images of happy immigrant and Muslim families will soon flash across digital billboards around town in a campaign to promote community understanding and tolerance.

Of course, they’re happy. They know that the “understanding” and “tolerance” only goes one way–their way–and they don’t have to reciprocate.

“We wanted to build a movement and put a human face on immigration. They’re families just like us,” said Kristin Collins, director of Uniting NC, a Raleigh-based nonprofit that unveiled the billboard campaign Tuesday.

The billboards were paid for using a grassroots method called “crowdfunding.” Uniting NC proposed the project online, and more than 250 people contributed $3,500 toward the cost of buying billboards here and in Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, Mebane and Goldsboro.

The images will run as public service advertisements later this month on digital billboards operated by Lamar Advertising on Hendersonville Road, Tunnel Road, Patton Avenue and Airport Road. The campaign will run through the end of the year.

The images feature smiling ethnic families with children with the titles “Community: We’ll Get There Together” and “Immigrants make us stronger.”

“It sounds like a good start,” said Tim Nolan, a member of Defensa Comunitaria, an immigrant advocate group in Asheville, who welcomed the billboards. “The whole problem is that people have this fear and anger and scapegoating of people they don’t really know. We all live in this community.”

Collins was excited by the crowdfunding and envisions more campaigns next year that she said would move beyond the polarized policy debate on immigration reform.

“We told people that, if they wanted to see these messages in North Carolina, they had to pitch in — and they responded,” Collins said. “It was so exciting to see that many people don’t buy into the negative rhetoric about immigrants. These billboards showcase the positive, humane voices that are not usually heard in this debate.”

Uniting NC is one of 19 state affiliates of a national movement, led by the Atlanta-based group Welcoming America, that works to build understanding between natives and new immigrants.

“We’ve watched states like Alabama and Arizona be torn apart by fear and anger about immigrants,” said Rabbi Eric Solomon of Beth Meyer Synagogue in Raleigh. “Here in North Carolina, we have an opportunity to do better than that. In this holiday season, let’s remember that when we talk about immigration, we are talking about human beings who have the same hopes and desires that any of us do.”

Solomon joined Christian and Muslim leaders at a press conference in Raleigh, publicly supporting the billboard campaign and imploring North Carolinians to “welcome the stranger” this holiday season.

It’s vermin like “Rabbi” Solomon (a Reform rabbi, which means he knows as much about Judaism as my pet rock) who breed anti-Semitism. Thanks, schmuck. If this guy chokes on an organic sweet potato basil latke, you won’t see me shedding any tears.  Better yet, he’s a prime candidate for “Lunch in Tul Karem.”

Reader Duane:

They should have a billboard that reads, “Enjoy the Reconquista.”

Indeed.  Though I prefer one that says, “Enjoy the Jihad, Bitch.”

Our own people (the Jews) are our worst enemies. They (reformed Jews) are killing our religion. Thanks Rabbi Solomon for welcoming more Islamic terrorist in to our states. Hashem have mercy on us.

Karen on December 15, 2011 at 1:54 pm

Yes, some Jews (who should know better) are airheads (I’m trying to be kind) but I have an issue with calling people (Jewish or otherwise) “vermin”… It’s just too reminiscent of the imagery that Nazi propaganda promoted vis a vie the “undesirable” people (Jews, Roma/Sinti etc)…

Eliezer on December 15, 2011 at 2:11 pm

Ladies – Break out your Berkas – America – Wake Up! I wonder how liberal the reform Jews will be when Shariah law kicks in right here at home. Isn’t that already the case in Dearborn Debbie?

“Rabbi Eric Solomon of Beth Meyer Synagogue in Raleigh: “Here in North Carolina, we have an opportunity to do better than that. In this holiday season, let’s remember that when we talk about immigration, we are talking about human beings who have the same hopes and desires that any of us do.”

Speak for yourself rabbi. I have no desire to fly aircraft into buildings, plant bombs on trains, do mufa’khathat between the thighs of six year olds, behead everyone who disagrees with me, beat my wife or gleefully make plans for the final holocaust. Nor do I hope to enter a celestial brothel by committing mass murder.

Crombouke on December 15, 2011 at 2:19 pm

    I’m sure there are illegal immigrants who come here in search of a better life and freedom. There are also thousands of illegal immigrants who don’t have such benign intentions and who are in a position to do our country harm. Illegal immigration is the national security problem, period. A country that can’t control its borders won’t be around for long. Liberals may not care if we are still a sovereign nation in a generation but the rest of us do.

    And I don’t want it thought there is something moral or compassionate about breaking our country’s laws. Becoming an American once upon a time was regarded as a special privilege. Those days are now gone forever.

    NormanF on December 15, 2011 at 7:32 pm


I normally don’t use it either, but vermin is a good description of those who would sell us down the river to the Muslims, leaving us @ their mercy after we lose all our rights vis a vis them, or become a minority while they become a majority…

Enemies are one thing, but those who betray us to our enemies b’cos they consider us their enemies as well… I want them defanged.

Infidel on December 15, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Goethe wisely stated that: “There is nothing more frightful than ignorance in action.” Mr. (I do NOT call him “Rabbi”) Solomon proves these words true. Mr. Solomon’s religion is liberalism, NOT Judaism. The man looks like a grinning idiot in the picture – or should I say, practicing idiot? He is doing what is currently trendy – love the muslims. Doesn’t this moron realize that he would be among the first to have his throat slit? These “Men of the cloth, of any religion who cater to these islamic groups are useful idiots. They will be the first to “Go.” Are they so naive that they think the lion will eat them last if the pet it and groom it and feed it? Mr. Solomon is a disgrace on so many levels. For shame sir, for shame!

“We wanted to build a movement and put a human face on immigration. They’re families just like us,’ said Kristin Collins, director of Uniting NC, a Raleigh-based nonprofit that unveiled the billboard campaign Tuesday.”

Kristin, I did not come from a family whose ancestors used drug cartels and fraud to arrive and support themselves in the United States. Also, none of them made any effort to impose their religion upon their new countrymen. In short, such behaviors would have been deemed abhorrent and worthy of punishment by those new migrants. It would be akin, from their view, to breaking into someone’s home (or entering under false pretenses), and then making demands upon its owners. Is a victim expected to feel guilt or pity when confronted with a burglar or robber? That is what you stand for Kristin, after you drop the extraneous remarks about breeding habits.

Oh brother! They sure do lay it on thick and stupidly don’t they? This type type of maudlin Bennetton-esque crap makes me “ACK!” like “Bill The Cat” (Is that dude still around?).

Dr. Savage has it right yet again when he states “Diversity is perversity” and this type of schmaltzy dreck is also dangerous. I can’t stomach identity politics. It’s such horsesh** and you can tell these yobbos are trying to assuage their guilt because they are prolly truly intolerant at heart.

Nothing is better than NATURAL diversity. When you let things be and DON’T make a big deal about “multi-culturalism” things go much better. I’d rather we be united as AMERICANS and legal and good citizen Americans at that!

And I am tired of special treatment for the death-cultists and I do NOT celebrate illegal aliens. It’s so disgusting. What other countries let the worst and the dumbest infiltrate us and make us less than? What a sick, sad country we are becoming!

Skunky on December 15, 2011 at 3:47 pm

As an orthodox Jew, people like you make me sick.

Larry on December 15, 2011 at 4:15 pm

    No Larry, JINO’s like you and you’re ilk make me sick, and also Larry, JINO’s like yourself are responsible for increasing anti-semitism both nationally and worldwide! You are akin to a “kapo”, if this were the 1930s & 1940s, you’d been a “nazi collaborator” by taking a job for them and doing Adolf Hitler’s bidding and rounding up you’re own fellow co-religionist into the concentration camps! And also, the book of Revelations in the bible talks about jews like yourself Larry, by worshipping false idols, etc.!

    “A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

    Sean R. on December 15, 2011 at 5:28 pm

    You should join up with Stormfront. Or, you could watch the
    Military Channel’s new series on Nazi Collaborators. You can meet people who sold out their own people and countries in order to curry favor with the Third Reich. Unfortunately, there were Jews willing to sell out their own people.

    Here are a couple of program in that series that would be relevant to you:

    HITLER’S INSIDE MAN – Tuesday, October 18 at 10 PM ET
    Chaim Rumkowski was considered a traitor after he was handpicked to lead the Jewish council governing the Lodz ghetto and assisted the Nazis with the sinister logistics of the Final Solution.

    JEWS WHO FOUGHT FOR HITLER – Tuesday, October 25 at 10 PM ET
    Facing discrimination or worse, many Germans who were considered to have Jewish ancestry chose to go along with the Nazis and risk their own lives for Adolf Hitler.

    These programs will be repeated.

    Are you this sort of Jew Larry? Have you taken your self-loathing to this extreme yet? You are following in the footsteps of Chaim Rumkowski.

I wonder where this Rabbi received his training? Unbelievable as to how naive he is. Someone needs to tell the Rabbi that the world isn’t full of rainbows and unicorns. Unfortunately, there are a lot of bad people in it who would slit his throat (including the ones he is tripping over himself to embrace) at the first opportunity. What a putz.

Jeff on December 15, 2011 at 4:31 pm

This weird politically-correct, thought-crime thing isn’t ever going away. It’s the liberals’ H-bomb.

DS_ROCKS! on December 15, 2011 at 4:41 pm

Eric Soloman is like a number of real estate agents I know of. He sure as the hell know how to bring down the value of the neighborhood and fast.

Numerous other clergymen that I know of and have heard give sermons are just as bad.

Far too many Western religions have been infected with the Stalinist virus called liberalism. Stalin and Hitler must be rubbing their hands in absolute glee from the 9th circle of Hell as they watch the foolishness of our clergymen.

Confederate South on December 15, 2011 at 5:09 pm

OK, for the one-hundreth time, this is not about immigration, this is about illegal invasion, and, for the one-hundreth time. just because the US has accepted immigrants in the past, where is it written that this trend must continue indefinitely and now without restriction? Ridiculous affront to common sense. As is the idea that they have “the same hopes and ideas that we do, it’s about community”. Yeah, right, I know when my ancestors came here, their first goal was to transform America into some utopian/third world vision and overthrow the’gringo/infidel system’, tell me another lie, I’m used to it.

ant on December 15, 2011 at 5:54 pm

Carried to its illogical conclusion, eventually EVERYONE will live in what was once America. Duh, America then ceases to exist. We’re almost there, as it is, thanks to the Open Borders loonies.

JeffT on December 15, 2011 at 6:17 pm

Debbie a lot of Reform “Rabbis” are political activists and they’re all left wing drecks who damage Klal Yisrael. My local orthodox rabbi years ago causes a shit storm by addressing a local female reform rabbi as “Mrs.” I thought it was apropos but those reform types crave recognition from the same authentic Jews they hate, which they’ll never get. I, too have a Jewish pet rock, Shlomo. Perhaps I could bring Shlomo over and we can all discuss the parsha hashavuah.

A1 on December 15, 2011 at 6:23 pm

Reform rabbis are the scourge of Judaism. They care for every minority group, and Muslims in particular, in the hopes that they will be loved.

In contrast, they hate Jews. They preach against Orthodox Jews, to the point of lying about Chasids, modern Orthodoxy, etc. They hate Israel, and those Jews who dare to hold their heads up high and fight for Judaism.

They have no respect for politically and religiously conservative Christians, and they mock them.

They mock Jews who are Republicans, and Jews who are members of the NRA.

They hate Netanyahu and Jewish settlers, but express support for the Palestinians trying to kill them.

They are the modern equivalent of the Judenrat. No, in fact, they are worse.

I was once conservadox. My wife converted reform, and we left the synagogue after one too many attacks on Jewish settlers. (The same rabbi mocked my NRA Life Member Jacket).

These rabbis are the undoing of Jewish life in America, and they are undermining Christian support for Israel.

Who needs Muslims when we have reform rabbis?

Jonathan E. Grant on December 15, 2011 at 7:24 pm


    Reform Judaism will be extinct within two to three generations. They don’t do a good job of preventing intermarriage and do nothing to provide children with an authentic Jewish education and sense of identity.

    Judaism for them is simply a “brand” vehicle to peddle left-wing politics.

    I really see no future for them even though they do exercise a great of influence today.

    Jews who will survive will be the Ultra-Orthodox and the Orthodox.

    NormanF on December 15, 2011 at 7:37 pm

You can only water down Judaism so much before it becomes nothing. Reform and this Secular Humanist form of Judaism are one step away from full assimilation and/or conversion to another religion. I saw it happen with my own extended family (who hail from Southfield, Farmington Hills and Bloomfield Hills). It’s a real shame and a tragedy. That combined with low birthrates has done us in.

Karen on December 15, 2011 at 9:31 pm

Norman is right. I am not an especially ‘observant’ Jew in my personal practices, though I identify with the nationalist religious types. (When I do go to pray, its at an ortho or Chabad centre). The ‘conservative (mid stream) congregations in North America are not drawing in the youth. The reform will be gone in 2-3 generations, the way of the dodo. The orthodox are drawing the young ones and even some from the other strains…and that is because they actually stand for something. Standing for something does mean a lot…ask any British 20-something party girl who has recently converted to Islam.

Not Ovenready on December 15, 2011 at 11:04 pm

Debbie, I’m also appalled at the support for illegal immigration and especially increased Muslim immigration to this country. For a rabbi to support Muslim immigration to this country is even worse.

Please clarify your comment “breed anti-Semitism”. I certainly hope you didn’t mean Jews can breed anti-Semitism, because if that’s what you meant, I strongly disagree.

Scott on December 15, 2011 at 11:51 pm

Slaves…..yeah, I laugh SO hard when I see Muslim couples, like in the picture above, or in that disgusting TLC show. I would love to just run up to “American” Muslim wives and ask them, “You DO know that now you’re in America, you don’t have to wear those slave clothes, right??????”
-Actually, I’d prefer to spit in the faces of the smug, hypocrite slaveholder husbands, who you will ALWAYS see dressed just like me or any other free, happy, American dude….you know; shorts, tennis shoes (minus the creepy Middle-Eastern man-bling and chest-hair, of course). Total Brainwash….Patty Hearst come to mind??
….Btw, at least when the Amish wear “period-costuming”, they at least look cute, and the men also “dress up”….and you KNOW they don’t have celebrated wife-beating, and daughter-killing…..trying to pretend they don’t belong to the world’s largest fertility-cult…..where men don’t worship God, they just organize to celebrate domination over women.

Um, no they’re not. My illegal, third world neighbors’ kids pee off the front porch whenever they feel like it. Beer cans strewn about is not yard art. The fact that they WILL NOT assimilate is part of the reason this country is going to hell in a hand basket.

WilliamMunny on December 16, 2011 at 9:09 am

Don’t refer to these people as vermin….you denigrate rats by doing so. What an unholy mess….

Rabbi Eric Solomon

I think you got the name wrong. It’s “Airhead Sillyman”.

It’s no wonder he wants more people here. It would give him a larger pool of men to have sex with.

CornCoLeo on December 16, 2011 at 2:13 pm

No one I know is opposed to legal immigrants who go through the system legally. Both my blessed children, Isaac and Rebekah, were adopted from Guatemala. I have NEVER received any static about them from anyone, as both were adopted legally and openly.

Our problem is illegal immigrants who contribute out of their numbers crime and misery to the USA. Check out New Mexico’s prisons, for example.

Good fences make good neighbors. Great fences make fantastic ones. Switzerland has no problems with neighbors, and Israel would do well by simply eliminating trade and contact with non-Jewish areas—let the Pali areas alone except to respond to attcks, and stop funding vermin.
