Cleveland Clinic Resident Fired for Online Antisemitism Rejected From Another Job
JNS.org – A former Cleveland Clinic medical resident fired for making antisemitic remarks online, such as tweeting in 2012 that “ill purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds,” had a residency offer recently revoked due to her antisemitic past.
On Monday, Kern Medical in California released a statement that as of March 15, they had notified Dr. Lara Kollab “that her position as a Post-Graduate-Year 1 resident in the Internal Medicine Residency Program has been withdrawn effective immediately.”
“Kern Medical has determined that Dr. Lara Kollab breached her Match Participant Agreement when she submitted information that was false, misleading, and incomplete to Kern Medical during the interview and match process,” they continued.
Kollab studied at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York and was accepted at the Cleveland Clinic as a resident.
“After repeated failed diplomacy, our aim is to defeat the Zionist state through force,” Kollab tweeted in December 2012 in response to a tweet that said “Peace won’t come by killing every Zionist. There has to be diplomacy.”
“Khalid stop starting fala7i vs madani [peasant vs civilized] wars on twitter! roo7o [go] fight with yahood [Jews] instead. Yallah,” Kollab tweeted in March 2013.
She posted five months later on Twitter: “@ShabanSalya Allah yo5od el yahood 3ashan enbattel nettar nroo7 3nd hel wes5een -___- [May Allah take back (end the lives) of the Jews so we stop being forced to go to those unclean ones].”
Kollab’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are no longer active.
