Former Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren is claiming that Representatives Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar are out to destroy Israel's economy.

According to Fox News:

House Democrats Ilhan Omar, of Minnesota, and Rashida Tlaib, of Michigan, are out to destroy Israel's economy, former Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren said in a Tuesday interview on "Fox & Friends."

"These two members of Congress have supported an organization called BDS, which doesn't aspire to create a better two-state solution. It aspires to destroy the state of Israel through economic strangulation," he said.

"They were being sponsored by an organization... which not only supports BDS, [but] is known for anti-Semitic comments and for supporting terror. No such country would let such people in unless they had a diplomatic reason."

Omar and Tlaib were barred from entering the country last week, due to their high-profile attempts to boycott Israel, prompting a public response from the two anti-Trump Democrats.

Oren made the comparison by stating that the United States would deny entry to anyone making these claims against the U.S.
