“Think about it. Omar wears a hijab,” Pirro said, questioning if the head covering signals an “adherence to Sharia law.”

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday questioned whether’Rep. Ilhan Omar’s use of a hijab,’a head covering traditionally worn by Muslim women, signaled that she held beliefs that are “antithetical” to the Constitution.’

“Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?” Pirro said.’

Judge Jeanine asks whether Omar’s hijab is ‘indicative’ of her loyalty to Sharia law | TheHill

Pirro made the suggestion during the’opening monologue of her show ‘Justice with Judge Jeanine.’

‘Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,’ she said.

Pirro’raised the questions’amid a wave of controversy over Omar’s comments about Israel that have sparked an anti-Semitism debate in Congress.

Critics of Omar’s’comments, in both the Republican and Democratic parties, said the congresswoman’s most recent remarks pushed the anti-Semitic trope that people’who advocate for Israel are more loyal to’that country than the U.S.

Fox News Host Jeanine Pirro Claims Ilhan Omar’s Hijab is ‘Indicative of Her Adherence to Sharia Law’

Fox News Host Jeanine Pirro suggested during her Saturday evening show Justice with Judge Jeanine that Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, wears a hijab because of her ‘adherence to Sharia law.’

Pirro later said more explicitly that she thinks ‘this is Sharia-adherent behavior and it is somewhat disturbing if she is someone who is Sharia-compliant.’

Omar has been a target for Republicans, many of whom have accused her of using’alleged anti-Semitic tropes, such as suggesting’Americans’ support for Israel represents dual loyalty and derives from pro-Israel lobbying groups buying the support of Congress.

Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro: Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Hijab Could Mean She Is Against Constitution

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro openly questioned Rep. Ilhan Omar’s loyalty to the United States during her show on Saturday. Her reasoning? After reviewing some of Omar’s previous statements regarding Israel, Pirro pointed out Omar wears a hijab. Pirro, who is known to regularly speak to President Donald Trump, said Omar is anti-Israel and her hijab could mean she believes in Sharia law.

‘This is not who your party is,’ Pirro said of the Democratic Party. ‘Your party is not anti-Israel, she is. Think about this. She is not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?’ Pirro, seemingly unconvinced that Omar just might be able to reach her own conclusions without getting a cheat sheet from anybody, then pointed to her head covering.

Ilhan Omar’s hijab raises concerns for Fox News host Jeanine Pirro

President Trump was right when he said the democrat party is now the anti-Israel party. Don’t forget Nancy, history has proven over and over when you appease to anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens. #OpeningStatementpic.twitter.com/vrnzhcu95o

This is horrendous. Wearing a Hijab does not make you disloyal to the constitution. https://t.co/IkbShEAo4d

Wearing a hijab is entirely consistent with our Constitution. Denigrating Americans for their displays of faith is not. https://t.co/c2bq7gtqho
