Anti-semitic doctor who would give Jews ‘wrong meds’ rejected from next job

Kern Medical in California notified Lara Kollab, whose Twitter posts were riddled with anti-Semitic statements, that her position “has been withdrawn effective immediately.”


A former Cleveland Clinic medical resident fired for making anti-Semitic remarks online, such as tweeting in 2012 that she would “purposely give all the [Jews] the wrong meds,” had a residency offer recently revoked due to her anti-Semitic 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 Lara Kollab “that her position as a Post-Graduate-Year 1 resident in the Internal Medicine Residency Program has been withdrawn effective immediately.”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,” said a statement.

Kollab studied at Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in New York and was accepted at the Cleveland Clinic as a resident. Her Twitter feed included posts calling Jews “dogs” and disparaging comments about the Holocaust.

“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 [peasant vs civilized] wars on twitter! [Go] fight with [Jews] instead. Yallah,” Kollab tweeted in March 2013.

She posted five months later on Twitter a message that was translated as “May Allah [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Kollab’s Twitter and Instagram accounts are no longer active.
