“I don’t have to tell you, Nancy (Speaker Pelosi). Jews have been persecuted almost from the beginning of time, when they were forced out of Egypt, to the six million killed in the Holocaust. And now we are witnessing the rise of anti-Semitism in Europe where incidents are up seventy-four percent in the last year alone in France. Where Jewish cemeteries are regularly desecrated with swastikas and

Pirro’s opening statement from last Saturday’s show is still on her Twitter page. However, Pirro has not tweeted since last Sunday. Fox issued a statement Monday condemning Pirro’s remarks.

Pirro’s last tweet was Sunday morning.
