Lara Kollab has been removed from a second residency program for her 2012 antisemitic tweet in which she said she would "purposely give all the yahoods [meaning Jews] the wrong meds."

Last week, Kern Medical confirmed that Kollab's position "in the Post-Graduate-Year 1 resident in the Internal Medicine Residency Program has been withdrawn effective immediately."

"Dr. Kollab submitted information that was false, misleading, and incomplete to Kern Medical during the interview and match process," it said. "Kern Medical is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of our patients and expects the highest level of integrity and compassion from our staff."

Kern Medical added that "we value that a key part of our mission is to teach and train our resident physicians to always provide exceptional care to all patients, regardless of race, religious background or social standing."

From July 2018 to September 2018 Kollab worked for the Cleveland Clinic, however, she was fired because of the 2012 social media post in which she threatened Jewish patient.

Meanwhile, a Palestinian dentist living in the United States was exposed last week for joking about torturing her "Zionist patients."

Jihad Watch and Canary Mission both posted about tweets by Nessreen Zayed, a Palestinian dentist believed to be practicing in Cinncinati, Ohio, who has openly advocated for torturing her "Zionists" patients, as well as shown support for Hamas and terrorism against Israel.

In 2015, she was tweeted a video of a hair-raising scene from the musical Little Shop of Horrors showing Steve Martin's Orin Scrivello - a Dentist - happily torturing his patients while doing a musical number.

Zayed responded to the Tweet soon after, saying that she "loved the video[.] I will enjoy doing this to Zionists patients with my pleasure."

Canary Mission also found Tweets proving that she is a vehement supporter of Hamas, which is internationally recognized as a terrorist organization, and has also openly praised terrorists like Khader Adnan, who praised and encouraged suicide bombings, and Bilal Kayed who was responsible for several terrorist attacks in 2002 during the Second Intifada.

She has also advocated for violence against Jews living in Israel, tweeting on October 9, 2015 that it's her dream for Palestinians to "stab all the Zionists.
“@robbyhuda18 @Omar_Gaza hey why u follow me I’m Palestinian by the way I’m against Israel I can care less if they stab all Zionists my dream,” she wrote.
