In a statement explaining Israel's decision to bar Tlaib and Omar's entry, Netanyahu said last Thursday: "Several days ago, we received [Omar and Tlaib's] trip itinerary, which clarified that they planned a visit whose sole goal was to support boycotts and deny Israel's legitimacy".
The comments came after Israel's decision to bar her and Tlaib from entering the occupied Palestinian territories, which they had meant to visit on a congressional delegation.
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) is now fundraising over her canceled trip to Israel, giving credence to theories alleging the entire trip - and ensuing controversy - was a "political stunt".
Halie Soifer, executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America, called the comments "yet another example of Donald Trump continuing to weaponize and politicize anti-Semitism".
The president blasted out the praise of him just hours after he set off a furor by saying any American Jews who vote for Democrats are "disloyal" - drawing howls of protest from Jewish groups who said the comments resurrected "dual loyalty" tropes.

Mr Trump's comments prompted condemnation from Jewish groups, which charged the president with anti-Semitism by questioning the loyalty of Jewish citizens, part of a longstanding trope accusing Jewish people of dual allegiance.
He followed up with another tweet also seen about American-Jews. They don't even know what they're doing or saying anymore.
"I would encourage my colleagues to visit, meet with the people we were going to meet with, see the things we were going to see, hear the stories we were going to hear", Omar said.
Root was likely referring to that fact that polls show U.S. Jews overwhelmingly oppose Trump despite the president's track record of supporting Israel, including moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, recognizing the Golan Heights as Israeli territory, cutting aid to the Palestinian Authority, and tightening sanctions on Iran, which has threatened Israel repeatedly with annihilation.
