Skip to comments.Fox Condemns Judge Jeanine for Asking Omar if She is Pro-Sharia (Fox Now Unfair and Unbalanced)
Posted on 03/12/2019 9:30:20 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
Breitbart reported Monday that the Fox News Channel condemned host Jeanine Pirros remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omars (D-MN) use of a hijab and said the issue has been dealt with directly. Sounds serious. But what Pirro actually said was something Fox should have been applauding, if it hadnt already become just another establishment network.
Pirro said: Think about this: Shes not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if its not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they wont get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?
Predictably, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) called on Fox to fire Pirro. Like a shark, CAIR can smell blood in the water: instead of defending Pirro for asking a perfectly legitimate question, Fox immediately reacted as if Pirro had stolen Barack Obamas parking space, denouncing Pirros words with stern self-righteousness: We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirros comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.
Pirro, issued a clarification, to little effect: Ive seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday nights show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American. My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you dont support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today.
Fox is increasingly slipping into the Leftist echo chamber. It is terrified of discussing these issues. A few years ago, Jeanine Pirro contacted me and was going to have me as a featured guest on a special show about Sharia. She was very excited about it, and all the arrangements were made to fly me in and get me set up in the studio. Then at the last minute, everything was canceled it was clear that Fox executives had told her she was venturing into forbidden territory. They willingly kowtow to the Southern Poverty Law Centers defamation campaign targeting foes of jihad terror and Sharia oppression of women and others. But last night, Pirro ventured off the reservation again, daring to suggest that Ilhan Omars hijab showed her to be Sharia-compliant.
There is so much confusion on this issue, even among people who should know better. Media critic John Nolte tweeted: Does a Jewish man who covers his head put the Torah above the Constitution? Does a Catholic woman who covers head put the Pope above the Constitution? What a stupid thing to say.
No in both cases, because in both cases the headwear in question is not part of a larger system that is incompatible with Constitutional rule. However, the hijab is part of such a system, and thats all Pirro was saying. Fox should not have rebuked her, but this is the age of pandemic cowardice, so it was likely unrealistic to expect anything else.
Ilhan Omar herself, not surprisingly, was happier with Fox News than she has probably ever been, and tweeted: Thank you, @FoxNews. No ones commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.
But that wasnt really what Pirro did. Pirro suggested that Omars anti-Semitism came from Sharia. And indeed, Sharia is indeed inveterately anti-Semitic: the Quran demonizes the Jews in numerous ways. It depicts the Jews as inveterately evil and bent on destroying the well-being of the Muslims. They are the strongest of all people in enmity toward the Muslims (5:82); they fabricate things and falsely ascribe them to Allah (2:79; 3:75, 3:181); they claim that Allahs power is limited (5:64); they love to listen to lies (5:41); they disobey Allah and never observe his commands (5:13). They are disputing and quarreling (2:247); hiding the truth and misleading people (3:78); staging rebellion against the prophets and rejecting their guidance (2:55); being hypocritical (2:14, 2:44); giving preference to their own interests over the teachings of Muhammad (2:87); wishing evil for people and trying to mislead them (2:109); feeling pain when others are happy or fortunate (3:120); being arrogant about their being Allahs beloved people (5:18); devouring peoples wealth by subterfuge (4:161); slandering the true religion and being cursed by Allah (4:46); killing the prophets (2:61); being merciless and heartless (2:74); never keeping their promises or fulfilling their words (2:100); being unrestrained in committing sins (5:79); being cowardly (59:13-14); being miserly (4:53); being transformed into apes and pigs for breaking the Sabbath (2:63-65; 5:59-60; 7:166); and more. They are under Allahs curse (9:30), and Muslims should wage war against them and subjugate them under Islamic hegemony (9:29).
Sharia also mandates that women cover their heads:
And tell the believing women to reduce their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which appears thereof and to wrap their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands fathers, their sons, their husbands sons, their brothers, their brothers sons, their sisters sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed. (Quran 24:31)
O Prophet, tell your wives and your daughters and the women of the believers to bring down over themselves their outer garments. That is more suitable that they will be known and not be abused. And ever is Allah Forgiving and Merciful. (Quran 33:59)
Narrated `Aisha (the wife of the Prophet): `Umar bin Al-Khattab used to say to Allahs Messenger (ﷺ) Let your wives be veiled But he did not do so. The wives of the Prophet (ﷺ) used to go out to answer the call of nature at night only at Al-Manasi. Once Sauda, the daughter of Zam`a went out and she was a tall woman. `Umar bin Al-Khattab saw her while he was in a gathering, and said, I have recognized you, O Sauda! He (`Umar) said so as he was anxious for some Divine orders regarding the veil (the veiling of women.) So Allah revealed the Verse of veiling. (Al-Hijab; a complete body cover excluding the eyes). (Bukhari 79.14.6420)
Wearing hijab is a sign that one accepts these imperatives. That is not necessarily true, as lots of women of all perspectives wear headscarves, but when a Muslim woman wears hijab, its reasonable to surmise that she accepts the Quran and Sunnah, the sources of Sharia. Sharia denies the freedom of speech, the freedom of conscience, the equality of rights of women, and the equality of rights of non-Muslims. Wearing hijab is a sign of adherence to Sharia.
So what did Judge Jeanine Pirro say that was wrong about Ilhan Omar? She asked questions that need to be asked. Fox should be apologizing to Pirro, not Omar.
The same Fox that called the House for the Dems while people were still voting? Im shocked /s.
As much as anything this makes it official that a conservative alternative to Fox is needed.
Too many camel noses in the tent, forcing out the old ones we got used to.
WAKE THE F UP, AMERICA !
At least, the Judge kept it clean and confined to the issues at hand. She didn’t ask if Omar was Sharia-compliant herself. “Are you FGM?”
reason and reality demand condemnation of condemnation
Fox the ......
Can’t say because I’m a lady....
I’ve said for many years that fox is liberal. It’s just not as liberal as CNN. :)

Faux became unbalanced when they told Megyan to attack Trump during the debates.
It ended Megyan future in TV and permanently damaged Faux with its viewer base.
Did the muslim anti-American say yes or no?
How long before Pirro is forced to apologize or be fired?
It was a career-ender to question ANY of the Fraud’s lies.
Ilhan Omar is not just pro-sharia she’s pro-Islamification of the USA.
FOX had better watch its self..Judge J is one of my favorites and she is right..I agree with everything she said and I can bet thousands of us do too..No one cares what that Muslim cow has to say she needs to uncover her head..Her and the ignort three had better be careful they might get something they are not wanting and that is fired..
Fox News is TERRIFIED about saying anything negative about the murdering cult known as Islam
Isn’t Sharia a contraction a sh!t and diarrhea. Six of one and half a dozen of the other.
And they wonder why they’re losing long time viewers.
Folks, pull the cable plug and never look back.
Funding liberals is largely what is killing this country.
They would collapse on their own without subsidy.
Faux execs put Megan Kelley on the hit list because she wouldn’t have sex with some of them
Once an avid viewer. Not so much anymore.
Islam is the disease. Omar is a symptom of a much greater problem infesting Western countries.
