A doctor who was practicing medicine at the famed Cleveland Clinic was fired after her virulent anti-Semitism was discovered, including statements on social media in which she called Jews “dogs” and that she would purposefully give them the wrong medicines.
On Monday, the Cleveland Clinic released a statement regarding Lara Kollab, 27, a former supervised resident who was hired last July 1 but fired in September:
This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. 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.
Although Kollab’s social media accounts have since been deactivated, a record of them has been preserved by Canary Mission here. As Canary Mission wrote, “Lara Kollab has called for violence against Jews, spread anti-Semitism, trivialized the Holocaust, defended the terror organization Hamas and supported terrorists on Twitter. She has also compared Israel to Nazi Germany, spread anti-Semitic conspiracy theories and hatred of Israel, and accused Israel of exploiting the Holocaust.
Some salient examples of the many posts that have been cited:
