Anti-Semitism should not be tolerated in any setting – least of all in an environment where medical personnel take a pledge to provide care and comfort to patients. But that’s exactly what’s at the center of a controversial case unfolding in Ohio.
Physician Lara Kollab, a first-year resident at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, took part in social media rants that included anti-Semitic hate speech and dangerous threats. In her tweets, Kollab referred to Jewish people as dogs, downplayed the Holocaust, and said she was “brutally unsympathetic” about it. She said “Allah will kill the Jews” and threatened to “purposely give all the (derogatory term for Jews) the wrong meds.”
This behavior is abhorrent and dangerous.
Should a doctor who makes threats about giving Jews the wrong medication with the intent to cause harm be entitled to practice medicine? The answer is no. The medical license should be permanently revoked. Threats to cause harm must never be tolerated in any setting, including the medical field.

Stop Vile Anti-Semitic Attacks on Jews
A Muslim medical doctor in training publicly threatened to “purposely” prescribe “the wrong meds” to Jewish patients.
Lara Kollab, a first-year resident at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic, brazenly said, “Allah will kill the Jews,” called Jewish people “dogs,” and is “brutally unsympathetic” about the Holocaust. She actually publicly stated that she wanted to “purposely give all the [Jews] the wrong meds.”
This vile anti-Semitism turns the Hippocratic Oath – “do no harm” – on its head. Unsurprisingly, Kollab is part of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions) movement, further exposing BDS for what it is – thinly veiled anti-Semitism.
At the ACLJ, we’ve been aggressively fighting the BDS movement and these sickening attacks on the Jewish people and Israel. We’re engaged in federal lawsuits against BDS attacks.
Now, we’re sending a formal complaint to the medical board. Kollab and any medical professional who espouses this deadly level of hatred for Jews should lose their medical license. Take action with us.
