A Muslim doctor in Ohio made despicable statements on Twitter revealing deadly anti-Semitism, and putting innocent lives at risk. The ACLJ is taking immediate action to get her medical license revoked.
On today’s show, we discussed how Lara Kollab, a first-year resident at Ohio’s prestigious medical center, the Cleveland Clinic, tweeted a series of brutally anti-Semitic epithets, including that Jews are “dogs” and that she is “brutally unsympathetic” about the Holocaust.
Kollab, a self-proclaimed member of anti-Israel BDS (Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions) movement, also tweeted that she wished “Allah will kill the Jews.”
Maybe the scariest of all her statements, Kollab tweeted that, as a doctor, she would “purposely give all the [Jews] the wrong meds.”
The ACLJ, and specifically my dad, jumped on this situation immediately. My father grew up in a Jewish family in New York, and our family still proudly celebrates our Jewish heritage.
This disgusting anti-Semitism literally endangers lives.
The Cleveland Clinic released a statement confirming Kollab had been fired and was no longer associated with the hospital. This is the right move, but it’s not enough. We’re going to the Ohio State Board of Medical Examiners.
Kollab’s statements violate at least six counts of the American Medical Association’s Code of Medical Ethics. Kollab’s license needs to be revoked.
Our team of our lawyers immediately started putting together a formal complaint which we will be filing with the Ohio medical board TODAY.
We’re working quickly to make sure that neither this anti-Semitic doctor or any other medical professional who espouses this kind of racism – and quite frankly terrorism – never practices medicine or puts Jewish lives in danger.
This vile anti-Semitism has to be exposed before innocent lives are lost.
