By Townhall. During her Fox News show on Saturday, Judge Jeanine Pirro posed an interesting question about Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN): does she hold her allegiance to Sharia Law? . . .
“Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” Pirro told her audience. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” . . .
Omar has garnered attention for her anti-Semitic comments, specifically about Americans’ loyalty to Israel. In her eyes, anyone who advocates for Israel is more loyal to Israelis than Americans.
Last week, the House passed a resolution condemning anti-Semitism, which was a direct result of Omar’s numerous anti-Semitic comments. Even after the resolution passed, Omar stood her ground, saying her comments started a “difficult conversation” that can lead to “great progress.”

GOP Leader Accuses Dems of ‘Enabling Anti-Semitism’ by Defending Ilhan Omar
By New York Post. A top GOP House leader accused Democrats of trying to “protect” Rep. Ilhan Omar and “enabling anti-Semitism” by failing to single out her anti-Israel comments on the House floor.
“I think it was really clearly an effort to actually protect Ilhan Omar,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.) told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday. “To cover up her bigotry and anti-Semitism by refusing to name her. The Democrats have yet to take any action to remove her from her committee. And they’ve got a real problem.”
Cheney voted against a bipartisan House resolution Thursday that condemned anti-Semitism and many other forms of hatred and bigotry.
The broad resolution failed to single-out Omar specifically for comments she made that suggested that supporters of Israel have an allegiance to a foreign country. (Read more from “GOP Leader Accuses Dems of ‘Enabling Anti-Semitism’ by Defending Ilhan Omar” HERE)
