On last night’s “Justice,” Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted President Obama for trying to downplay the threat of Islamic extremism and trying to prevent Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from speaking before Congress while the danger posed by radical Islam grows ever greater.

"So, while the White House continues to talk - holding the Countering Violent Extremism conference - and our commander-in-chief says it's a lie to say ISIS is part of Islam, they behead 21 Christians, burn a captive alive in a cage and continue to expand the territory they control In their jihad against our civilized world," Judge Jeanine said.

"And while you hunger to understand the 'legitimate grievances' of those who want to kill us, and while your ace State Department spokesperson wants to give them jobs, the last laugh, Mr. President, is on you," Judge Jeanine stated.

"Many of these jihadists - as we found out this week - are not in need of a job. Actually, they're pretty well-heeled. That's nothing new - we've known that since 9/11. And by the way - they don't need a job. They have a job. Their job is to kill us."

Watch Judge Jeanine's fiery opening statement above and read the full transcript below.


Is it me or does nothing out of Washington make sense these days?

“Our citizens, our world today is, despite ISIL, despite the visible killings that you see and how horrific they are, we are actually living in a period of less daily threat to Americans and to people in the world than normally.” – Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday

“Preliminary data for the first 9 months of 2014 reflects nearly 13,000 attacks which killed 31,000 people. When the final accounting is done 2014 will have been the most lethal year for global terrorism in the 45 years such data has been compiled.” - Director of National Intelligence James Clapper on Thursday

You know, it's like these guys are actually auditioning to replace that old comedy duo Abbott and Costello.

Look, if I were the DA and I trumpet there’s no crime, but the police chief says crime is rampant, head for the hills, one of us would and should lose our job.

So, while the White House continues to talk - holding the Countering Violent Extremism conference - and our commander-in-chief says it's a lie to say ISIS is part of Islam, they behead 21 Christians, burn a captive alive in a cage and continue to expand the territory they control In their jihad against our civilized world.

And as Iran test fires a new "strategic weapon" and simulates an attack on an American aircraft carrier, our commander-in-chief - so desperate to negotiate with them - that he throws our one solid ally in the Middle East, Israel, under the bus.

Mr. President, you have tried to prevent Prime Minister Netanyahu from speaking before Congress. With all due respect, if you believe in the American Constitution and the First Amendment, there is something called free speech. And if you say you don't want him to speak because you don't want to appear to influence the upcoming Israeli election, then why did you send out that crack Sunday morning talk show theorist Susan Rice to say the visit would be “destructive?”

Isn't the mere use of the word “destructive” an attempt to influence the upcoming election?

You know, Mr. President, why does it feel like you're on the wrong side of things, on the wrong side of history? Why are you not working with Egypt and Jordan to eliminate ISIS? Both are Arab Muslim nations willing to identify the enemy as Islamic extremists.

Your latest excuse to not identify them as "Islamists" is that you don't want to legitimize them. Did you just come up with that one this week? If you didn't want to legitimize then, why did you get out of Iraq so fast, leaving room for them to move right in?

And when 21 of his people were killed, beheaded, Egyptian President El Sisi had his military take to the air within 24 hours to bomb his enemy. And when Jordanian King Abdullah heard of the burning of his soldier, he raced back to Jordan to rally his forces, hang two terrorists and organize a military strike against ISIS.

But you, Mr. President, what do you do? You hit the golf course within minutes of announcing the beheading of an American citizen. It must be good to be you.

And this week, in spite of your efforts to dissuade our one constant ally in the Middle East, Israel, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu comes to Congress to speak to us - the American people - about the threat of the nation you so desperately want an agreement with: Iran.

But you know what? 77 percent of Americans say potential Iranian nukes are a critical threat to us. But then again, he's a real leader. You can call him chicken crap and you can say that his visit is destructive, but tell me this - what's more destructive? The leader of one of our allies speaking to Congress or a nuclear bomb in the hands of Iran?

And while you hunger to understand the "legitimate grievances" of those who want to kill us, and while your ace State Department spokesperson wants to give them jobs, the last laugh, Mr. President, is on you.

Many of these jihadists - as we found out this week - are not in need of a job. Actually, they're pretty well-heeled. That's nothing new - we've known that since 9/11. And by the way - they don't need a job. They have a job. Their job is to kill us.
