In a week where Fox News is being roundly mocked for hosting a “terror expert” who claimed Birmingham is a Muslim-only city – we bring you this spectacular rant by Jeanine Pirro.

Pirro, a former prosecutor and judge, opened her segment on Saturday with her thoughts on radical Islamists – specifically: “We need to kill them. We need to kill them. The radical Muslim terrorists hell bent on killing us.”

Accompanied by an image of Muslim police officer Ahmed Merabet being shot dead in the aftermath of the Paris Charlie Hebdo attacks, Pirro added: “You’re in danger, I’m in danger. We’re at war. And this is not going to stop.

Jeanine Pirro does not mince her words

“After this week’s brutal terror attacks in France hopefully everybody now gets it. And there’s only one group that can stop this war. The Muslims themselves.

“Our job is to arm those Muslims to the teeth and give them everything they need to take out these Islamic fanatics, let them do the job, and when they do, we need to simply… look the other way.”

Pirro has form for rants in this vein. In June last year she delivered advice on what to do about the presence of Islamic State (IS) in Iraq: “Bomb them, bomb them, keep bombing them, bomb them again!” and assertions that President Barack Obama doesn’t “have the balls” to try terror suspects in Guantanamo.

'We need to kill them. We need to kill them'

In her latest screed, the 63-year-old continued: “It is time for this to be over and to stop sending American dollars to any Arab country that does not support this mission. Pakistan at the top of the list.

“Force Arab nations to choose. They’re either with us or against us. And stop with this nuclear negotiation nonsense.

“They don’t operate the way we do. You can’t negotiate, you can’t mediate and you can’t bargain. You can’t even reason with these people.”

Pirro, whose television career began as the host of a reality courtroom show cited President of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as having: “Rid Egypt of these Islamic fanatics. He threw out Hamas terrorists and outlawed the Muslim brotherhood.”

As Vox’s Amanda Taub points out: “The news that radical Islam has been eradicated from Egypt would, I imagine, come as a surprise to Egyptians, including al-Sisi himself.”

Pirro continued her fear-mongering tirade: “Now I’ve been telling you for a year that they’re coming for us, that there is a reverse crusade in progress, a Christian genocide.

“As this Islamic cancer metastasises throughout the world, Boko Haram in Nigeria, Al Shabab in Somalia, Ansar Al Sharia in Libya, Al Qaeda, ISIS, and as it goes through Europe it is headed our way.”
