As you can see by these Twitter search results, we have been on the forefront of a campaign to call her out on this, and call for her to be fired. Furthermore, this is the same Octavia Nasr who Debbie Schlussel has written extensively about, so it's not like her Tweet is that shocking, especially considering CNN's long history of anti-Israel bias.
(Arutz Sheva) Lebanese-born CNN senior editor Octavia Nasr eulogized on her personal blog the spiritual leader of Hizbullah, who died last week, according to the media watchdog Honest Reporting.

Nasr, born in Beirut and now living in Atlanta, Georgia, is CNN’s senior editor on Middle East Affairs. Following the death of Grand Ayatollah Mohammed Hussein Fadlallah, Nasr Tweeted, “Sad to hear of the passing of Sayyed Mohammad Hussein Fadlallah... One of Hezbollah's Giants I Respect A Lot.”

Falallah was one of the original leaders of the Hizbullah terrorist organization and urged suicide bombings against Israel. Hizbullah secretary general Hassan Nasrallah said of Fadlallah, "Today we lost a merciful father and a wise guide,”

Fadlallah also belittled the Holocaust, saying, “Zionism has inflated the number of victims in this holocaust beyond imagination. They say there were six million Jews – not six million, not three million, or anything like that... But the world accepted this [figure], and it does not allow anyone to discuss this.”

Nasr is not the only reporter of Lebanese origin who has made pro-Hizbullah or anti-Semitic statesmen’s. Last month, “dean of White House correspondents” Helen Thomas, whose parents were from Lebanon, said that Jews in Israel should "go home” to Poland or the United States or other countries.

Following her remarks, the Hearst newspaper chain fired her.
