"We strongly condemn what Jeanine Pirro said about Representative Ilhan Omar," Fox News said in a statement. "They do not reflect those of the network, and we addressed the matter directly with her."
Controversial statements from Omar, a democratic newcomer, have landed them in hot water with members of both parties.
Pirro suggested on Saturday that Omar's faith in Israel stems from her religion. Omar is a Somali American and a practicing Muslim wearing a religious headgear called hijab.
"Think about it: Omar wears a hijab," Pirro said in her "Justice" show in Fox News. "Does her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicate that she abides by the law of Sharia, which in itself conflicts with the United States Constitution?"
Pirro was denounced on Sunday both left and right by men.
Bret Stephens, a conservative New York Times columnist, said Pirro was "a shame." He said, "Any healthy democracy needs a healthy conservative movement," but "Fox News has become the main driver to make this movement excessive, idiotic, and illiberal."
In her own statement on Sunday evening, Pirro did not apologize, saying the intention of her comments was" to ask a question and have a debate begin ".
"Of course, being a Muslim does not mean that you do not support the Constitution," she said. "I invite Rep. Omar to my show anytime to discuss all the important issues facing America today."
Omar is a longtime critic of Israeli Palestinian politics and an advocate of the boycott-divestment sanction movement in The United States condemns Israeli government policy.
These positions are not anti-Semitic. But Omar has made several statements to Israel in recent months that reflect common anti-Semitic statements about double bonds, Jewish money, and power.
"We are extremely proud to be part of a body that has condemned all forms of bigotry, including anti-Semitism, racism and white supremacy," Omar said in a joint statement with Democratic Congressmen Rashida Tlaib and Andre Carson. all three Muslim members of the US Congress.
"In At a time when extremism is on the rise, we must explicitly denounce religious intolerance of all kinds and recognize the pain that all communities feel, "they said. "Our nation has a difficult conversation and we believe this is a big step forward."
Pirro's question about Omar's loyalties resembles Omar's questions about Israeli supporters: When Omar asked why it was acceptable for Americans to be Israel, Pirro asked how a Muslim could obey Islamic religious law. American constitutional law at the same time.
Religious garment, including hijabs, habits, yarmulkes and other ornaments are protected speech in the United States. Pirro's comments reflect a widespread anti-Islamic belief that Muslims are bound by Sharia law over American law.
