Israel officials confirmed Thursday they will not admit Congresswomen Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar into the country; citing their vocal support for boycotts against the world’s only Jewish State.

President Trump urged the Israeli government to bar Reps. Omar and Tlaib from the country on social media Thursday; saying “they hate Israel and all Jewish people.”

“The congresswomen have supported Palestinian rights and backed the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement targeting Israel. Both have been accused by other members of Congress of using anti-Semitic language, but leaders of both parties had said they should be allowed to visit Israel,” reports The Hill.
