(December 31, 2018 / JNS) The Cleveland Clinic announced on Monday that it fired a medical resident amid reports of her making anti-Semitic remarks online, such as tweeting in 2012 that “ill purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds.”
“This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic,” said the No. 2 ranked hospital in a statement to CBS affiliate WOIO. “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.”
Lara 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Kollab’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are no longer active.
Cleveland’s Jewish population is about 80,000.
