Buh-bye. CNN finally fired Hezbollah fan and anti-Semite Octavia Nasr. But it was long overdue. When Hezbollah spiritual leader Sheikh Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah died on Sunday, many were angered and shocked by CNN Senior Editor for Middle Eastern Affairs Nasr’s Twitter tweet praising Fadlallah and stating her extreme sorrow over his death.
This is CNN
But I wasn’t shocked. As I previously reported on this site, in May the witch Nasr referred to me on CNN with the anti-Semitic slur. And as I also noted then, Nasr was always Hezbollah’s whore at CNN. During the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war, her “reports” were repeatedly cheerleading sessions for Hezbollah, filled with anti-Israel propaganda and lies. She was Helen Thomas with an Arabic accent (yes, I know Thomas is an Arab, but she has an American accent, so no e-mails and comments with incorrect corrections, please.)
Given all of that, why is it such a surprise that the woman would continue to cheer and praise the spiritual leader of Hezbollah after he died? And where were CNN and all of the liberal Jewish groups that were suddenly shocked–shocked!–that this pan-Muslim Christian water-carrier for Hezbollah actually supports Hezbollah like she has on CNN all along?
It’s funny to read CNN’s baloney about why they fired her, since she NEVER had any credibility and the tweet was more of the same.
At this point, we believe that her credibility in her position as senior editor for Middle Eastern affairs has been compromised going forward.
At this point?! PUH-LEEZE. More like, at every point. And don’t expect CNN to replace her with anyone better.
Glad she’s gone. But it’s long overdue. And, again, her tweet about Fadlallah was nothing new or shocking for her . . . or for CNN in general. For the Crescent News Network, it’s par for the course.
