examination roomThe state of Ohio is being urged to permanently revoke the medical license of a physician who made anti-Semitic threats on social media.

Partnering with The Zionist Organization of America, the American Center for Law and Justice has filed a formal complaint with the Ohio Board of Medical Examiners, calling for the medical license of Dr. Lara Kollab to be revoked. ACLJ attorney Jordan Sekulow explains that as a first-year resident at the Cleveland Clinic, Kollab demonstrated the "most horrific form" of anti-Semitism.

"In one of her social media posts, she said she would give the wrong kind of medicine to Jews – and she uses a derogatory term for 'Jews,'" he explains. "So it wasn't that she was just expressing anti-Israel sentiment, she was calling for all Jews to be killed. In a latest discovery, there's a note where she goes further than just 'Jews' and says that all supporters of Israel should lose their immune system."

Sekulow, Jordan (ACLJ)Kollab's tweets were reportedly discovered and revealed by the website Canary Mission. The 27-year-old medical school graduate has apologized for the social media posts, which occurred between 2011 and 2017 – while she was in college and medical school.

Kollab was fired by the Cleveland Clinic for her remarks, but Sekulow says that is not enough.

"The concern is that if this isn't handled appropriately, [it's likely that] a rural hospital or somewhere else that has a doctor shortage [may] look past these remarks, accept her very weak apology – if you can even call it that – and ultimately employ her," he explains to OneNewsNow.

Sekulow hopes the Ohio Board of Medical Examiners will take the complaint seriously and do the right thing by revoking Kollab's license.
