A hospital in Cleveland has fired a resident after it was discovered she had shared alarming anti-Semitic comments on social media, including a post that said she would “purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds,” reports Cleveland.com.
Lara Kollab, 27, a recent graduate of the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine, was recently fired from her position as an Internal Medicine Resident at the Cleveland Clinic, Ohio, after it emerged that she had been fanning anti-Semitic sentiment on Twitter for at least the last six years, according to Times of Israel.
“She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the organization said in a statement on Sunday. They also confirmed that she had worked as a supervised resident with the clinic from July to September last year.
Kollab had reportedly called for violence against Jews in several tweets, in which she also referred to Jews as “dogs” and compared Israel to the Nazi regime.
Kollab could also be seen saying she would “purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds,” using the Arabic word for Jews, in a screenshot of a tweet made in 2012 shared by the publication. Her social media accounts have since been deactivated.
Kollab’s medical license, which was issued in Ohio in July 2018, remains active.
