Ohio Doctor Tweeted She’d ‘Give Jews The Wrong Medication’
Lara Kollab, a first year resident Doctor of The Cleveland Clinic, was found to have a Twitter account full of nasty and anti-Semitic comments.
In one Tweet, she promised to give Jewish patients the wrong medication.
A spokesperson for Cleveland Clinic said in a statement on Wednesday that Kollab was fired as a first-year resident after the clinic was made aware of her social media posts.
“When we learned of the social media post, we took immediate action, conducted an internal review and placed her on administrative leave. Her departure was related to those posts and she has not worked at Cleveland Clinic since September,” the statement read.
The Cleveland Clinic also confirmed that Kollab’s departure was related to her social media activity. They emphasized that she was under constant supervision during her residency, an apparent response to her tweet about giving Jewish people incorrect medication.
“For first-year residents, multiple safeguards and direct supervision are required for patient care and prescribing medicine,” the hospital said. “In addition, there have been no reports of any patient harm related to her work during the time she was here.”
Kollab has since deleted her tweets, but Canary Mission, a website devoted to exposing those who openly support antisemitism or terrorist organizations, compiled, translated and took screenshots of some of them. They show calls for violence against the Jews, claims that the Holocaust is exaggerated, and open support for terrorists.

She also tweeted:
“@ShabanSalya Allah … [May Allah take back (end the lives) of the Jews so we stop being forced to go to those unclean ones].”
“… looks like America, ya3ni wasn’t that special to me [look, Haifa is sweet (nice), but it’s full of Jewish dogs, and it looks like America, meaning, it wasn’t that special to me].”
“I don’t mean to sound insensitive but I have a REALLY hard time feeling bad about Holocaust seeing as the ppl who were in it now kill my ppl.”
She also reportedly tweeted in praise of terrorists like Khader Adnan, a senior member of Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
“#KhaderAdnan is dying so we can live. #Palestine #KhaderExists,” Kollab wrote.
Kollab also expressed support for the the Palestine Right to Return Coalition and the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israeli businesses.
