It’s been a rough patch for Nir Rosen after some ill-advised remarks posted on Twitter got him in trouble earlier this week pertaining to his response to the news that CBS correspondent Lara Logan had been sexually assaulted and beaten while she was reporting on Egypt’s unrest:

“ah fuck it, i apologize for being insensitive, its always wrong, thats obvious, but i’m rolling my eyes at all the attention she will get,” Rosen tweeted Tuesday.

And then he added remarks about her being a “war monger”:

“jesus christ, at a moment when she is going to become a martyr and glorified we should at least remember her role as a major war monger.”

But apparently his social media indiscretions aren’t relegated to just Twitter.  An image added to his Facebook page dated Dec. 29, 2009 in the “profile photos” section of his profile, shows a little boy who is apparently his son wearing a yellow T-shirt with the Hezbollah logo.

Hezbollah has been on the U.S. State Department’s list of terrorist organizations since the 1980s.

    Is he planning on strapping a suicide belt on his Hezbollah ‘son’? Perhaps Rosen’s neighbors will counter-attack before it’s too late.
