Cleveland Clinic Lets Resident Go After Anti-Semitic Social Media Posts Exposed

"I don't mean to sound insensitive but I have a REALLY hard time feeling bad about Holocaust seeing as the ppl who were in it now kill my ppl".

Since being fired, Kollab has deleted her social media accounts, although copies of her tweets have been preserved by various organisations.

The Cleveland Clinic released a statement condemning Kollab's comments and the medical facility distanced itself from her views.

The State Medical Board of OH says Kollab has been working with a training certificate issued in July 2018.

In December of that year, she responded to a Twitter user who said "Peace won't come by killing every Zionist". In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organisation.

An interview she published with her father, Mahmoud Kollab, in 2013 identifies him as a former resident of Nablus in the West Bank. "We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system", the Cleveland Clinic said in a statement posted online.

Citing a series of tweets screen-grabbed by the Canary Mission website, Times of Israel said the 27-year-old had been making anti-Semitic comments on social media from 2011 to 2017.

Kollab was sacked by elite Cleveland, Ohio hospital, which has the country's top ranked cardiovascular program, but she retains her medical licence. She also reportedly posted that she hoped "Allah will kill the Jews".

Screenshots captured by the Canary Mission reveal Lara Kollab's anti-Semitic posts on social media.

Perhaps ironically, Kollab received her medical schooling at a private Jewish-sponsored school, the Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. "They claim that that there is a distinction between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism", Canary Mission told JNS. "The mission of Touro College is to educate, perpetuate and enrich the historic Jewish tradition of tolerance and dignity", the statement reads.

As a medical student, Kollab posted under the Twitter pseudonym Elle Kay - which is believed to represent her initials L.K., according to Fox News.

"It is the Mission of the State Medical Board of OH to protect the health and safety of all Ohioans", said Tessie Pollock, the board's director of communications.

Kollab reportedly has since wiped clean her social media accounts.
