NY Hospital Trying to Fire Antisemitic Doctor Walid Khass

In February 2019, I wrote about SGU Medical Student Walid Khass, who, I wrote at the time, “seems to be giving Lara Kollab a run for her money when it comes to doctors or future doctors you really might have concerns about, especially if you are a Jewish, considering SGU is affiliated with the Jewish Hospital in Ohio and the Bergen Regional Medical Center in New Jersey.”

Fast forward over a year and a half, and he’s back in the news, as the hospital at which he works tries to fire him.

A yearlong battle between a doctor and a New York hospital trying to fire him over anti-Semitic and anti-gay posts will be back in court next week.

New York-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital has tried to dismiss Walid Khass from his position as a pediatric resident since 2019, the Forward reported Thursday.

Khass was admitted to the hospital’s residency program, but then was informed he had been found unsuitable. He sued the hospital to be readmitted to the program and won.

The hospital, which treats many Jewish patients, appealed the decision and is due to argue its case at a Sept. 17 hearing in Brooklyn state Supreme Court, according to the Forward. It says Khass cannot remain because some of his posts condoned or encouraged violence.

“These posts would cause serious and extreme hardship on the Program because it would interfere with the Program’s ability to serve a patient population consisting of a large number of Orthodox Jews,” one filing said.

Like in the case of Lara Kollab, Canary Mission discovered Khass’ posts, and my subsequent post on him went quite viral, viewed over 16,000 times.



As I keep saying, exposing these Jew-haters is an effective, legal way of fighting back.
