Even the Nazis didn’t take such unbridled joy from genocidal hate and bigotry as do today’s Muslim Jew haters. It literally defines them.
A hospital in Cleveland reportedly fired a Jew-hating Muslim doctor after it was discovered she had been sharing anti-Semitic comments on social media for years on end.
In November, the Canary Mission website published a compilation of dozens of her tweets — dating from 2011 to 2017 — in which she called for violence against Jews, called them “dogs,” minimized the Holocaust, likened Israel to the Nazi regime and claimed Zionists control US media and schools.
Cleveland.com reported on Sunday that the Cleveland Clinic confirmed that Lara Kollab is no longer working with the organization after having only worked as a supervised resident with the clinic from July to September last year.
Cleveland Clinic was recently made aware of comments posted to social media by a former employee.
The clinic offered a statement regarding the Islamist jihadist former employee.
This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic.
In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system.

Cleveland Clinic is a nonprofit multispecialty academic medical center that integrates clinical and hospital care with research and education.
Located in Cleveland, Ohio, it was founded in 1921 by four renowned physicians with a vision of providing outstanding patient care based upon the principles of cooperation, compassion and innovation. Cleveland Clinic has pioneered many medical breakthroughs, including coronary artery bypass surgery and the first face transplant in the United States.
U.S. News & World Report consistently names Cleveland Clinic as one of the nation’s best hospitals in its annual “America’s Best Hospitals” survey.
Among Cleveland Clinic’s 52,000 employees are more than 3,600 full-time salaried physicians and researchers and 14,000 nurses, representing 140 medical specialties and subspecialties. Cleveland Clinic’s health system includes a 165-acre main campus near downtown Cleveland, 11 regional hospitals, more than 150 northern Ohio outpatient locations – including 18 full-service family health centers and three health and wellness centers – and locations in Weston, Fla.; Las Vegas, Nev.; Toronto, Canada; Abu Dhabi, UAE; and London, England.
In 2017, there were 7.6 million outpatient visits, 229,000 hospital admissions and 207,000 surgical cases throughout Cleveland Clinic’s health system. Patients came for treatment from every state and 185 countries.
According to Times of Israel, Kollab had a history of making anti-Semitic comments on social media for years, dating back to 2011.
Kollab had reportedly called for violence against Jews in several tweets, in which she also referred to Jews as “dogs” and compared Israel to the Nazi regime.
Kollab could also be seen saying she would “purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds,” using the Arabic word for Jews, in a screenshot of a tweet made in 2012 shared by the publication.
According to Times of Israel, Kollab’s Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts have since been deactivated.
Kollab’s medical license, which was issued in Ohio in July 2018, reportedly remains active, however, and expires in June 2021.

Al Awda Activism
Kollab joined the closed Facebook group, “Al-Awda-Cleveland,” under her alias “Elle Kay,” on March 17, 2012.
On November 21, 2012, Kollab tweeted a photo from an Al-Awda protest in Cleveland against Israel’s Operation Pillar of Defense (OPD) against Hamas and wrote: “Our protest for #Gaza today in Cleveland.”
On November 20, 2012, Kollab tweeted: “Protest tomorrow in Cleveland at Public Square, 4 pm in solidarity with #Gaza ! Be there or be square [ie. complicit to israeli war crimes].”
OPD was launched to stop Hamas rocket attacks from Gaza on Israeli civilians. From November 14 to November 21, 2012, Palestinian terrorist groups fired more than 1,506 rockets at Israel. The majority of those rockets struck Israel, damaging homes, schools and other civilian areas.
Human Rights Watch noted: “Palestinian armed groups made clear in their statements that harming civilians was their aim.”
Al Awda co-founder, Abbas Hamideh, led chants at the rally screaming [00:00:23]: “When people are occupied, resistance is justified” [00:01:39] and [00:03:36] “Israel is a terrorist state!” and “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.” Hamideh has confirmed this chant is a call to eliminate Israel.

Anti-Jewish Social Media Connections
Kollab interacts with other Twitter users whose feeds are also replete with anti-Jewish hatred. Below are some representative connections and examples of social media posts evidencing their anti-Semitism:
Kollab has interacted for years on Twitter with Al Awda co-founder Abbas Hamideh, known for spreading anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel, denying Jewish history and supporting terrorism.
On October 10, 2016, Hamideh tweeted: “@ikhras you’re anti Semitic according to non Semitic shlomos from Poland .”
Hamideh was responding to another tweet praising a Palestinian terrorist for killing two and injuring six in a shooting at a Jerusalem light rail train station.
On May 26, 2016, Hamideh tweeted: “Zionism will end just like Nazism. You can have a chat with God afterward to guide you back to Poland, Russia or even Morocco #Palestine.”
On April 19, 2016, Hamideh denied the Jews’ historical connection to Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. He claimed on Facebook: “There is no Jewish history at the Al-Aqsa Compound. There’s nothing Jewish about the ‘Wailing Wall’ which is the side structure of Al-Aqsa. All that is fabricated.”
Kollab has also interacted on Twitter with anti-Semite and Holocaust denier Moe Hamdan.
On April 9, 2012, Hamdan tweeted: “@Michaellaax3 if you go to Starbucks your a jew Idc what you say n you will get knocked out.”
On October 11, 2012, when Kollab tweeted: “If I have to write a paper about the holocaust, I’m going to bring palestine into it and my professor better like it,” Hamdan responded: “@ellekay_ make sure you mention the fact that ‘The Holocaust’ never happened.”
Kollab is the sister of Ameed Kollab, whose Twitter feed is also filled with anti-Semitism. The two interact on social media.
On February 26, 2016, Kollab tweeted: “I have absolutely no problem with Jews, but Zionists are a whole other story. They are the cancer of the earth.”
On July 8, 2013, Kollab tweeted: “@MahdiJabr1 thirsty ass arabs jus lookin for easy hoes thats why they like jews.”
Kollab has interacted with Ahmad Jaber, who has spread anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry on Twitter.
On August 3, 2014 — responding to a tweet by the Jewish dating app Twitter account JSwipe, that read: “A Nice Jewish Girl On Every Swipe!” — Jaber tweeted: “@JSwipe go f**k urself u Zionist nazi murderers!”
On August 8, 2013, Jaber tweeted: “@rebel_flower_ @Suckerr_Free she looks amazing your such a hating a** Jew.”
The BDS movement was founded in 2005 by Omar Barghouti and asserts that it “works to end international support for Israel’s oppression of Palestinians and pressure Israel to comply with international law.”
BDS initiatives include compelling institutions and individuals to divest from Israeli-affiliated companies, academic boycotts, anti-Israel rallies and protests.
The movement’s most notable achievement has been the infiltration of university campuses through lobbying for “BDS resolutions.” In these cases, backed by university anti-Israel affiliates, student governments have brought to vote on some form of boycott of — or divestment from — Israel and Israeli-affiliated entities. These resolutions, although non-binding, have been passed by student governments on numerous North American campuses.
BDS activity is often aggressive and disruptive. It has been noted that universities that pass BDS resolutions see a marked increase in anti-Semitic incidents on campus. In 2013, when the student government of the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) debated a BDS resolution, reports emerged of violent threats and the spitting on a student wearing a Star of David necklace. As a result, the student government chose to vote via a “secret ballot” in order to ensure its members’ safety.
