BREAKING: Ohio’s Jew-hating Doctor Fired for Threats Finds Residency In California [UPDATED]

by Avrumi Kitzer. Only three months after being fired by a prominent hospital in Cleveland, Ohio, a doctor who threatened Jews seems to have found a new place to practice “medicine.” Sources say Kern Medical in Bakersfield, California, is offering Lara Kollab a residency.

Kollab, a first-year resident at the Cleveland Clinic, was fired after threats to Jews and anti-Semitic comments were discovered on her social media posts. She has since deleted her social media, but screenshots of her posts — dating back to 2011 — were documented by the Canary Mission, a site dedicated to exposing anti-Semitism in an effort to combat its rise on college campuses. The Canary Mission noted that Kollab’s posts called for violence against Jews, defended Hamas, trivialized the Holocaust and repeatedly compared Israel to Nazi Germany. The group saved dozens of similar posts from 2011-2017.

Kollab said, “ill purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds…” Yahood is an Arabic term for Jewish people. Other tweets made reference to “Jewish dogs” and said in Arabic, “Allah will take the Jews.”

Kollab recently apologized for her remarks but given the sheer quantity of her anti-Semitic comments and the intensity of her stated hatred for Jews, we believe it is unsafe for any Jew to allow this “doctor” to endanger their health. What if she really carries out her threat to give a Jew the wrong medicine? Even USA Today called to suspend Kollab and not allow her to practice medicine.

What is Kern Medical thinking? Don’t they realize that they will also be held accountable for the death or injury of a patient if one of their residents purposefully does them harm?

I encourage everyone to call Russell Judd, CEO of Kern Medical, to register concern over Kollab’s new residency. The hospital’s phone # is 661-326-2000.

  • newcomer says:

    the hospital says no one by that name is employed there but a message was left about my concern with the secretary of the CEO

  • joe says:

    the medical regulators need to suspend her licence

  • Moish24/6 says:

    I just called the hospital and spoke to the CEOs assistant and she told me that she cannot believe how many calls she has received regarding this doctor and she also told me that hospital has terminated her position and fired her as of March 15th. She told me they’re going to release an official statement from the hospital sometime soon and she’s not aware of where it will be posted on. Good job everyone for making the public aware of this doctor

  • Getzel says:

    It would be helpful if you post Russel Judd’s email. I wrote an email to medical education, and would send to the CEO as well. Anyone have it? Please post.

  • eli says:

    just spoke to hospital and they said they never hired her being that she LIED on her application.
    Just for that she should lose her states as anything in medical.
    Now we need to call and ask that they release the LIE on the application so she will be totally terminated from any medical license

  • Abdullah ben salmani says:

    They said she’s not working there now.

  • Jackson says:

    She wrote those remarks as a teenager and has much apologized, explaining it not who she is today.
    What happened to a little forgiveness?

    • E says:

      I’d agree…except she was not a teen. She was a college grad. And her ugly posts were over a six year period, not a one time thing.

  • Mark says:

    @Jackson Judge Kavanaugh went through hell for his teenage years.

  • Miss Informed says:

    @Jackson. Her previous social media we not just anti-semitic. It stated her plans to give Jews the wrong medicine. Obviously she had her wicked heart internet on becoming a Doctor already and using it to hurt not heal.

  • Miss Informed says:

    @Jackson. Her previous social media we not just anti-semitic. It stated her plans to give Jews the wrong medicine. Obviously she had her wicked heart intent on becoming a Doctor already and using it to hurt not heal.

  • Moish24/6 says:

    When I posted earlier that the hospital has terminated and let her go the CEOs assistant read the above letter to me

  • Moish24/6 says:

    @jackson she didn’t post comments as you say as a teenager as a little joke these are serious threats that people can lose their life. it is unacceptable in the medical field under no circumstances for anyone. These are not just childish silly comments

  • Sanity Please says:

    This is a case of people’s lives at risk.
    I can forgive her, but let her get a job where people’s lives aren’t in her hands…..

  • Anonymous says:

    @Jackson, seems like she posted as late as 2017, I doubt she was still a teenager then. It’s really sad to see all that time and money she spent down the drain but there are consequences to your actions. She unfortunately made some pretty poor choices and will now have to deal with that. I’m sure she was no stranger to the fact that in her chosen profession (sic) she would be held to the highest standard. Maybe she’ll get her life back on track with a new career in anti-hate advocacy, somehow I doubt that too…

  • really.... says:

    WOW the comments here sound like a lynch mob, get the torches and the pitch forks. how very sad

  • B says:

    “lynch mob” “?!? We may have saved someone’s life!

  • Mom says:

    The right thing to do now would be to email or call commending them for there swift action and decision.

  • Agree with Mom says:

    I agree with Mom. I sent them an email thanking them several hours ago and received a nice response.

  • zumy says:

    Maybe she can get a job as a pathology resident and conduct post-mortems

  • Acsman says:

    I work at Kern Medical. On one hand, I’m very glad that they rescinded their offer. On the other hand, I would have LOVED to have her work alongside me, in order to set her anti-Semitic self, straight.
