t’s getting really hard to tell the truth about Islam these days, as shown by the ongoing controversy swirling around the new congressperson from Minnesota, Ilhan Omar, who has been roiling the Congress with her anti-semitic remarks over recent weeks.

You may remember her as the Somali who was accused of marrying her brother to make it easier to get into the United States, reported here last year: Somali Diversity Reaches US House of Representatives.

Below, Somali family values were illustrated in a PJ Media article that included corroborating photos.

Curiously, that backstory is missing from most of the reporting about the current controversy. Perhaps editors think the sibling marriage charge is just too much diversity for Americans to stomach.

In the latest installment, Jeanine Pirro was condemned by her bosses at Fox News for pointing out Omar’s divisive behavior in the judge’s Sunday show opener (read the transcript here):

Ilhan Omar is clear about who she is — shown by her daily hijab wearing — namely a muslim who follows the Koran and sharia.

It’s important to remember that Islam disrespects all non-muslims but has special dislike reserved for Jews, so Omar’s anti-semitic remarks are consistent with her belief system.

Robert Spencer, the proprietor of JihadWatch.org helpfully supplied chapter and verse from the Koran to illustrate Islamic anti-semitism:

Ilhan Omar thanks Fox for rebuking Jeanine Pirro, but Pirro is right: Hijab is a Sharia imperative, JihadWatch.org, March 11, 2019

Jeanine Pirro said: “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? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t 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?”

For that, Fox rebuked her and demanded she apologize. She had no genuine reason to do so. Sharia is indeed inveterately antisemitic: the Qur’an 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 Allah’s 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 Allah’s beloved people (5:18); devouring people’s 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 Allah’s 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.” (Qur’an 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.” (Qur’an 33:59) . . .

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, it’s reasonable to surmise that she accepts the Qur’an 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.
