A Florida dentist is out of work after being fired after being filmed tearing up posters of Israeli children kidnapped in the October 7 Hamas terror attack.
Blake Warman caught two men tearing up and crumpling up hostage photos in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood on Tuesday.
“I watched them take it apart and I recognized one of the men, and that’s when I panicked and realized I had to do something,” Warman told WTVJ.
After the video was posted, the video was reposted on Stop Antisemitism social media platforms and the two men were identified: Ahmed ElKoussa, 31, and Xave Ramoul.
ElKoussa, a dentist, was immediately fired by his former employer, CG Smile.

In a statement on social media, CG Smile condemned ElKoussa’s actions and said he was immediately fired after the owners saw the video.
“We are very sad to see this situation upon awakening. Our firm CG Smiles is not in favor of any of the actions taken by Dr. ElKoussa,” wrote CJ Smiles. “We do not support terrorist groups, actions or supporters.”
“He has been removed from our team, all of our social media pages and groups.” » added the dentist’s office.
The owner of the dental office, Juan Carlos Izquierdo, said his office received serious backlash after the video was released.
Izquierdo, whose family is Jewish, told WTVJ that the disgraced dentist called him and wanted to explain the video.
“Later I got a call saying he wanted to explain and after that everything would be sorted, and I told him I didn’t want to hear it,” Izquierdo said.
CG Smile did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
