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