Long Overdue: CNN Fires Anti-Semitic Hezbollah Chick Octavia Nasr (Used Slur Against Me)

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

Here’s my Tweet (follow me on Twitter):

I’m glad she is gone as well! But the media is becoming fast not only anti-semtic but it seems in some cases “Anti-American.”

Dale Wilhite on July 7, 2010 at 5:31 pm

Yup. I’m only surprised the Crescent News Network finally showed her the door!

Still a broken clock is right every now and then.

Good riddance!

    Hey Deb:

    First it was Helen and now it is Octavia. BTW, this debunks your theory that only Muslim Arabs hate Israel. Both these wonderful ladies are christian Arabs and both were victims of Freudian slips. Helen could not take it anymore. She vented her passion and spoke the truth about zionists should go back to Russia and Ukraine and Poland. Where did the Schlussels come from(Haifa, Yaffa, Akka??) Schlussel hardly sounds like a Middle-eastern semitic name??

    Listen, some Jews have lived in the ME and in Palestine for 1000s of years. Those are indigenious people and have every right to stay in Palestine. However, the pale skinned freckled red heads that came from Europe where Europeans could not stand looking at their ugly faces and persecuted them, those do not belong in Palestine.

    The tide is slowly turning in our favor. In the past, it was a non-Arab Kurd who liberated Palestine. In the future, it will be the same. The turnaround in Turkey is to our favor. In the future, you will see that “Israel” will become the south Africa of the 70s and 80s. Everyone will want to divest from it and shun it.

    The Arabian on July 8, 2010 at 8:28 am

      Hey Mo Ahab:

      No person who hates is Christian. These “Christian” Arabs are more PHONIES, like you.

      This group knows that a confession of faith means nothing and you judge a Christian by his works. Hatred is not a Christian work. It’s the devil’s work, again, just like you.

      As goes Israel - so goes the World on July 8, 2010 at 11:56 am

      It is ridiculous to claim that Octavia is anti-Jewish. At any rate, is the person making the claims an advocate for human rights, for ending the occupation in the terrories, fascism? I seriously doubt it. When someone says they’re against injustice anywhere, then I’ll maybe believe them about crying about racism. Often, people who cry the most about racism often are racist themselves. They will engage in racist behavior themselves, but act like the others are simply the problem. It’s kind of a psychological problem that people should all examine as human beings. Fadlallah wasn’t really a Hezbollah cleric. He condemned the Sept.11th bombings. He had positive statements about women’s rights,
      going against the abuse of women, talking to people of other faiths. Now, he had controversial comments about Israel. That’s true. Octavia wasn’t focusing on those. Does that make her anti-Jewish per se anymore than Jews who ignore Palestinians like the author of this site? Not really. We don’t live in a black and white world. Just because you know someone who has some problematic statements it doesn’t mean you ignore everyone who does. How many Jews don’t know any Jews who have some racist views or white Americans or African Americans?

Hasta la vista, baby! I hope you suffer now and after you die.

    PS I checked the Nielson ratings. I am sure that all ten (10) people who watch CNN will miss her.

    As goes Israel - so goes the World on July 7, 2010 at 5:56 pm

So when will CNN fire their entire reporting staff for being pro terrorist? About as soon as BHO admits he is an anti American racist.

Jarhead on July 7, 2010 at 5:56 pm

Great news! Excellent post! Good riddance to the anti-Semitic islamist hog, Nasr!

Provide evidence that Barack Obama is racist, which among other things would mean that he for some reason hates his mother and the people who raised him. Calling every black person with liberal views on racial politics a racist when a substantial percentage of the white population shares those same views doesn’t help your movement. Everyone knows that black Democrats and liberals like Obama are nothing but puppets for liberal whites. The truth is that Obama hasn’t done squat for blacks in terms of the traditional “black agenda”, nor has he tried. All he has done is enact the white suburban liberal/progressive agenda, stuff like homosexual rights and health care. Obama’s agenda – and for the most part the people around him – represent the agenda of liberal whites from Berkeley, Ann Arbor and the Ivy League, not of Harlem, Detroit or Watts. Blacks actually would have gotten more from Hillary Clinton than they will ever get from Obama, and that was why the black leadership initially backed Hillary Clinton and some of the die-hards endured a lot of criticism for sticking with her until finally folding. But black voters decided that the symbolism of a black president was more important than “the black agenda” (jobs programs for the inner cities, Great Society style social welfare programs, going soft on street crime, etc). You could actually easily find blacks criticizing Obama for not doing enough to help other blacks, it isn’t hard. Look, just because Glenn Beck, Michele Bachmann and Steve King say something doesn’t mean it’s true, ok? Remember, the terrorists that Obama was hanging out with (yes, Sarah Palin was 100% literally correct on this) were whites like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, not the Black Panthers or the People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement.

    Granny was a “typical white woman” and 20 years in Reverend Wright’s Black Liberation Theology Church makes ZerObama pretty much a racist to me.

    Plus, taxing tanning salons AND the DOJ refusing to look into Black on White crime is alllllllllllllllllllllll I need to know that Obamarxist is a racist dog!

    Skunky on July 7, 2010 at 9:06 pm


    You’re 100% right about Obama and his black liberal agenda in not helping the black community. Actually, all blacks had to do was check his record of “achievement” as an Illinois politician, for his district, that would’ve answer many of their questions. Also, it goes to show that just cause someone is your color, race or ethnicticity it doesn’t mean they’ll do right by you (Judas and Jesus, Soros telling the Nazis about Jews, Africans selling each other out to Europeans for slavery, American Indians selling out other tribes for weapons, etc…). However, I will disagree with you on one thing. I sure Obama met with Black radical groups. In secret, of course, and here’s how: We all know that Rev. Wright, before converting, was a Muslim and is a friend of Louie Farrakhan, whose a friend of the Black Panther Movement. Now a friend-of-a-friend-of-a-friend will all, eventually, meet and not by coincidence or accident either.Like minds want to be with the same and I’m sure he has met with radical Black groups. But like excuse with Reverend Wright’s radical anti-American rants “he wasn’t there” when it happened.

    The Sarge on July 8, 2010 at 9:13 am

Ok Gerald I’ll defend Jarhead. He is correct, Obummmer will set racial politics on fire, you will see the innner cities start to burn because Obummmer didn’t deliver on his promises, hope you don’t live in a culturally enhanced neighborhood.

Drakken on July 7, 2010 at 6:49 pm

Nasr unfortunately is just a symbol of what Melanie Phillips refers to as the “world upside down” – the good guys (like US and Israel) are now the bad guys, while those promoting barbarity (armed “activists” on blockade running flotillas, Hizbullah, et.al.) are the good guys.

Seth Frantzman has a piece in today’s Jerusalem Post surveying the 107 upcoming books focusing on the Arab-Israeli conflict almost all of which are promoting a narrative hostile to Israel. It’s now the politically correct narrative.

Raymond in DC on July 7, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    Re: Raymond in DC on July 7, 2010 at 6:52 pm

    It looks like that Raymond in DC’s Jerusalem Post link provides a good list of books that are skip-worthy.

    JeffE on July 7, 2010 at 10:25 pm

CNN ought to be renamed Arab News, seriously, have you seen the bulk of Arab advertising on CNN, it’s completely absurd. Just about every advertisement advertises one of the 51 Islamic states and promotes it likes it’s some sort of paradise. Islamofascism is definitely not my idea of paradise, not now, not ever.

DavidB on July 7, 2010 at 6:53 pm

Christian Amanpor should be exposed as a lying piece of shit and fired with disgrace. A pro USA President should also label BBC etc as terrorist hate monger and ban them from USA.

I do care about Winston Churchill not the garbage running the British government. I think that trying to impose democracy in Muslim world is the biggest waste of time, We should make it clear the next terrorist attack will result in 100 million dead Muslim and take over of oil property which Saudi Arab reengaged on their initial agreement. The revenue from these oil property will be use to compensate victim of Muslim violence and used to illustrate the danger of Islam.

DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD_ the wicked witch is dead

good riddance lover of HEZBOLLAH-
Hezzboliars killed many Americans, NASR, how dare you praise their leaders and try to say you are a USA journalist?

all propagandists for killers of Americans should be fired when they out themsleves-

to the stupid libs and Muz- free speech means you don’t get arrested by the GOVERNMENT for speaking against it- it does not mean you can say anything you like WHILE EMPLOYED BY PEOPLE WHO PAY YOU FOR OBJECTIVE FAIR REPORTAGE- same reason OLD HAG got fired- funny you see no irony that those who exercise “free speech in Hezzbo-land get assasssinated or tortured for it.

NASR can now work where her opinion will be accepted as news – Arabia GAZA or other Islamic nation.

hill billy on July 7, 2010 at 8:10 pm

The really disturbing thing about all of this is that anti-Semites like Helen Thomas and now Octavia Nasr are becoming more and more open about their true beliefs. Yes, there is an explanation for Helen Thomas, her age, but she’s part of a general trend. It’s like Europe more and more; the anti-Semites are becoming more and more brazen.

Little Al on July 7, 2010 at 8:23 pm

    Helen Thomas has spewed hatred since infancy.

    Old Age is not excuse in this case.

    As goes Israel - so goes the World on July 8, 2010 at 12:03 pm

Well overdue, and thanks for your untiring vigilance against these traitors Debbie!

Fiona on July 7, 2010 at 8:29 pm

I don’t watch CNN any longer and probably never will again (Sadly though, because an acquaintance and correspondent of mine actually has a new show on the network). We hear a great deal about “bias” in the so-called mainstream media but, CNN’s “reporting” is more than that; it’s purposely prejudiced. I am happy though, to see Nasr fired as it’s a step, at least in the right direction.

Here’s what she wrote on her “Twitter” page, ““Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah … one of Hezbollah’s giants I respect a lot.” By extension, she expresses her “admiration” of a terrorist organization which kills innocent men, women and children indiscriminately.

This is not quite as outrageous as Anita Dunn’s professed admiration of mass-murderer-of-millions Mao Tse Tung (but only because Dunn was a Presidential advisor and Nasr is a “journalist,” so-called) but, it’s disgusting nevertheless.

Of course, the leftist blogs are claiming CNN caved to “right-wing neo-cons” (yes, this is indeed intended to be anti-Semitic but, its use is cowardice personified – the left must always hide behind euphemism and distortion).

We need to stand firm against anybody who says they respect or admire or express whatever positive emotion regarding terrorists, communists and the rest of the enemies of everything that’s good and decent. Their defense of and apologies for Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatah and all the rest puts them in the enemy camp, as far as I’m concerned. Frankly, I think it is in their best interests to re-think where their loyalties actually lie. Do they really want to align themselves with those soon to be cast upon the ash-heap of history when they can align themselves with the ultimate victors (Good has and always will triumph over evil)?

I’m sure Nasr, unlike Thomas will find a new job with Al Jazeera or some other propagandist rag where her revolting admiration of the dregs of humanity will be welcomed but, at least she got her just desserts from CNN.

Finally, I find it both disturbing and painfully sad that some Lebanese Christians like Helen Thomas, Nasr and some of the participants in the Gaza Death Flotilla are apparently siding with the terrorists. I’ve known many, many Lebanese Christians in my life and, they were all fine people. I hope they see the light and reject the Islamonazis. They will suffer as a result of this ill-advised alliance as; it is guaranteed that the fascists will turn on them once their purpose is served. I pray they come to their senses.

Tom in Michigan on July 7, 2010 at 8:42 pm

“Nasr worked at CNN from 1990 until her dismissal in 2010.[1]”…so, it took CNN 20 years to question her credibility? Rather incredible, eh?

Dr Dale on July 7, 2010 at 8:44 pm

I want to join in celebrating the firing of Octavia Nasr, as well and in saying that she never should have been hired in the first place.

Nasr and Helen Thomas down, numerous other “journalists” (like Christiane Amanpour) and the whole structure of the “MSM” left to go.

Keep up the good work in your reporting on the so-called journalists and holding them accountable, Debbie.

JeffE on July 7, 2010 at 10:12 pm

CNN is absolutely filled with these Muslim sympathizers. They see romance in the death of Americans, Jews and Israelis. Think back to its use of fraudulent news stories, its Lebanese coverage made it appear Israel started the war. CNN is anti-Israel, anti-Catholic, anti-American. Remember the CNN jackass Eason Jordan that spit on Bush and America in the Middle east?

pat on July 7, 2010 at 10:38 pm

To ‘pat’: Didn’t you forget another former CNN jackal that likewise disgraced himself throughout his run there – Peter Arnett?

ConcernedPatriot on July 8, 2010 at 2:19 am

    Please don’t forget Larry King, self loathing as he is. During the earlier Iraq War, all you heard is that they’d be bringing out troops back in body bags by the hundreds of thousands.

    He is so cursed and has earned that curse.

Not enough to sack her. CNN has to say sorry for employing her in the first place, has to close down and has to pay cash compensation for promoting the religion of peace and for the many deaths and injuries its broadcasts have thus helped bring about all over the world down the years.

Preposteroso on July 8, 2010 at 3:51 am

So, Octavia and her traitor family fed of of Americans, in the name of multi-culturism!

    Multi culturalism?

    By now, we should have learned that diversity is perversity. Look at all the foreigns shooting on campuses… and the other damage these “foreigners” have done to US.

Now Octavia Nasr can work for another three letter group starting with C…CIA!



Bob Porrazzo on July 8, 2010 at 7:30 am

One more thing for Gerald or, actually, anyone who doesn’t think Obama is racist (I believe he is). Examine the way he’s reacted, or not acted, to help the people whose lives were destroyed by natural and man-made disasters. What were Obama’s actions to help the people in the following: North Easterns after the snow melted and they had mud slides and flooding; the folks in Tennessee whose floods destroyed billions in property and historical sites; the folks in “tornado alley” of Oklahoma, Kansas whose homes and farms were totally destroyed and, of course, our folks down in the Gulf, whose fishing and cannery industries will be destroyed for about a generation due to his lack of inaction. I’m sure Obama thinks that as long as these disasters didn’t affect “Chocolate city” they’ll be alright. Because, remember, these are just “typical white people”.
So sad, politics over people.

The Sarge on July 8, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Regarding Obama’s racism, I would put it this way:

    What more could Obama do to become a racist?

    Uh, nothing!

    As goes Israel - so goes the World on July 8, 2010 at 12:12 pm

I guess she was trying to test the waters with the current president in office.

shaon on July 8, 2010 at 9:28 am

Debbie, did you remember back a few months ago when you wrote an article about this Octavia Nasr witch and she made an anti-semetic remark towards, you, I to called for her firings at time after what she said about you nakedly on CNN. Well Debbie, your wishes and my wishes came to a reality, now all of this isn’t just limited to Ms. Nasr, the samething can be said for all of the lunatic left wingers in the media, for example Chris Matthews made a death threat to Rush Limbaugh last year, Chris Matthews should’ve been fired by MSNBC/NBC/GE, but he wasn’t fired, Mike Malloy should’ve been fired by Air America (which is NO longer on the airwaves because of bankruptcy) for making a death threat to Glenn Beck, Montel Williams should’ve been fired for making a death threat to Congresswoman Michelle Bachman R-Minnesota, the reason none of these left wing cockroaches weren’t fired is because they are part-in-parcel of the left wing establishment cabal. Randy Rhoades was fired a few years ago when she endless death threats to former president George W Bush, fact of reality is that the left wing media is no longer news worthy, these days they are either propagandist for the DNC & the Obama administration and also entertainers!

“A nation is identified by it’s borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on July 8, 2010 at 10:36 am

Good riddance to this unabashed admirer of murdering cowards and the religion that justifies and commands it. This disgusting woman is already trying to justify her comment that she respected Fadlallah b/c he was such a champion for Muslim women; claiming that this load opposed honor killings, or some such nonsense. Perhaps he was a true Islamic humanitarian and only called for cutting off the hands and feet of women?

Octavia needs to put an end to her charade and go to work for CAIR or Hezbollah itself. Those who support murderer of innocent people in the name of any cult or religion are themselves murderers.

Ace on July 8, 2010 at 11:57 am

Gerald, all you need do is read Barack Obama’s OWN BOOKS to know he has a problem with whites. He admitted it and acted as if he thought his own mother was a dimwit in some respects. Too bad he has no loyalty to the white grandparents who raised him. Poor old grandma had to wait a couple weeks to get buried didn’t she, he was to busy looking for the perfect dog at the time.

CJ on July 8, 2010 at 11:57 am

    CJ, you are absolutely correct. His books deal extensively with his thoughts on his white relatives, Asians, etc. It is clear that he hates white people, is convinced he is some sort of African elite (read his discussion with brother who shocked Obama by wishing to be identified as a Brit), dislikes Asians intensely because they are more white than white, and dispises Europeans.. As for his grandmother, I am not impressed.

    pat on July 8, 2010 at 12:39 pm

how could this nasr broad be an admirer of the dead muslim dude if she’s a christian arab? surely, someone she knows has been at the receiving end of islam’s notorious peacefulness back in the ME???

i don’t get it.

howardroark on July 8, 2010 at 11:59 am

Gerald – Have you read enough comments here to understand that B. Hussein Obama is a racist and a muzzie lover? The black panthers at that voting place in Philly are just a taste of BHO’s vision of paradise in the U.S. I wouldn’t be surprised if BHO makes them czars of a made up department or even let them head up Obastard’s civilian police force.

Jarhead on July 8, 2010 at 1:44 pm

    Obama is neither white or black. HE is obviously better than whites because HE’s black, and HE’s obviously better than blacks because HE’s white. HE is the Ultiman! Above and beyond us mere black or white mortals. When will you people finally wake up and recognize that?!? He knows it, so why don’t you? Of course you petty humans, well, it’s beyond your comprehension of course, but maybe, someday, you will understand. Someday we can all rise to HIS Glory!!!

patrick on July 8, 2010 at 7:28 pm

Nasr was fired for angering the SAUDIS for openly supporting an Iranian terrorist proxy. It was done swiftly and quietly (just in case you hadn’t noticed).

That’s why the incident wasn’t widely reported. Had she been fired for angering “the Jews” like Helen Thomas, the story would have raged on the front page headlines for days.
