(Natural News) A Jewish-American advocacy group known as Proclaiming Justice to the Nations (PJTN) has reportedly filed a complaint with the state of Ohio Medical Board, petitioning it to revoke the medical license of Dr. Lara Kollab over anti-Semitic comments she made on Twitter.
Dr. Kollab made global headlines earlier this year after it was revealed by the Canary Mission that she harbors an apparent hatred for Jewish people, revealing in a tweet that she would “purposely give all the yahood (Jews) the wrong meds” if given the opportunity to do so.
Far from an isolated incident, Dr. Kollab’s Twitter feed turned out to be littered with other anti-Semitic content, including one that joked about how “[p]eople who support Israel should have their immune cells killed so they can see how it feels to not be able to defend yourself from foreign invaders” – this comment referring to claims by pro-Palestinian groups that Israel has long persecuted its neighbors.
These and other tweets by Dr. Kollab, including many that referred to Israelis as “Jewish dogs,” led to considerable backlash that resulted in her being expelled from her residency at Cleveland Internal Medicine. But as of this writing, she’s still allowed to practice medicine in Ohio – much to the chagrin of her detractors.
“Our demands are grounded in the doctor’s intentional willingness to engage in malpractice, as well as a breach of the Hippocratic Oath and osteopathic ethics, a breach so grievous and unredeemable as to disqualify her from continuing to hold a license to practice her profession,” stated Laurie Cardoza-Moore from PJTN, as quoted by The Jerusalem Post.

Ohio Medical Board says Dr. Kollab should keep her license because she apologized
In defending Dr. Kollab, the Ohio Medical Board apparently sees an apology she made after being outed as sufficient recompense for her racist commentary on Twitter. Dr. Kollab, who used to live in a Palestinian area of the Middle East, stated:
“As a girl in my teens and early twenties, I had difficulty constructively expressing my intense feelings about what I witnessed in my ancestral land. Like many young people lacking life experience, I expressed myself by making insensitive remarks and statements of passion devoid of thought, not realizing the harm and offense these words would cause.”
“These posts were made years before I was accepted into medical school, when I was a naïve, and impressionable girl barely out of high school. I matured into a young adult during the years I attended college and medical school, and adopted strong values of inclusion, tolerance and humanity. I have learned from this experience and am sorry for the pain I have caused. I pray that the Jewish community will understand and forgive me. I hope to make amends so that we can move forward and work together towards a better future for us all.”
As humbly sincere as this apology might seem, however, Robert Spencer from PJ Media made the suggestion that this is likely not the case, seeing as how Dr. Kollab never saw fit to issue an apology – and remove the offending tweets – prior to becoming the subject of controversy.
In essence, it would appear as though Dr. Kollab was more concerned with engaging in damage control than expressing “a genuine change of heart,” as Spencer puts it.
“Is the Ohio Medical Board prepared for the possibility that Lara Kollab’s apology is insincere?” he asks.
“Will the Ohio Medical Board be held accountable if it allows her to continue practicing medicine, and one of her Jewish patients is injured or dies while under her care?”
Stuff like this is why Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, issued a proclamation last fall denouncing people like Dr. Kollab who instigate anti-Jewish sentiments online.
