"Your party is not anti-Israel, she is", Pirro said, directly addressing Democrats who have defended Omar. Support for Israel is declining among America's left-wing millennial women of all backgrounds, as well as among Democrats generally.

"Will any Republicans condemn it?" he said, after a number of GOP lawmakers had urged the Democratic leadership to punish Omar over her criticism of Israel.

Pirro implied Omar wasn't in a position to critique US foreign policy due to her supposed debt to the USA after fleeing Somalia as a refugee and being "resettled by our government in Virginia to enjoy the cornucopia of rights, privileges and benefits the United States offers". "Fox News has gone back time and time again about fear of Muslims, fear of minorities".

Pirro would go on to add, "this is Sharia-adherent behavior and it is somewhat disturbing if she is someone who is Sharia-compliant".

"We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro's comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar", network executives said in a statement to The Washington Post. "They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly", the statement read.

The rare rebuke from the top-rated cable network came after a Muslim Fox News staffer called out Pirro. "I've seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night's show and I did not call Rep. Omar un-American". "'My intention was to ask a question and start a debate' is nearly identical to Omar's defense of her own dual loyalty smear". But Omar has made several statements about Israel over the past few months that echo common anti-Semitic expressions about dual allegiances, Jewish money and power.

Omar, a Democrat from Minnesota, is one of the first two Muslim-American women ever elected to Congress. In response to journalist Glenn Greenwald's tweet about politicians' support of Israel, Omar replied, "It's all about the Benjamins baby".

After Omar's latest controversial statement about Israel supporters, the House of Representatives on Thursday passed a resolution broadly condemning hate and intolerance, including anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim discrimination. "Our nation is having a hard conversation and we believe this is great progress". Muslims' adherence to Sharia varies in the United States and around the world.

Religious garb, including hijabs, habits, yarmulkes and other adornments, are protected speech in the United States.

But, she tweeted, "It is important to distinguish between criticizing a military action by a government and attacking a particular people of faith".
