Hollywood director and vocal anti-Trumper Rob Reiner has demanded President Donald Trump be impeached after he advised Israel to bar 'squad' members Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) from entering the country.

The congresswomen were blocked from entering Israel amid their support for an anti-Israel pro-Palestinian movement.

“‘To suggest that 2 duly elected Members of Congress be refused entry to Israel saying “they hate all Jewish people’ is just latest assault by this ignoramous on our Democracy. There are no straws. There are no camels’ backs. There is only Impeachment,” Rob Reiner Fumed on Thursday.

Trump took to Twitter this week, calling on Israel to bar Omar and Tlaib from entering the country.

“It would show great weakness if Israel allowed Rep. Omar and Rep.Tlaib to visit,” the president said.

“They hate Israel & all Jewish people, & there is nothing that can be said or done to change their minds. Minnesota and Michigan will have a hard time putting them back in office. They are a disgrace!”

Congresswomen Omar and Tlaib voted against a resolution in July rejecting the ongoing Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign which was backed by heavily backed by anti-Israel activists and celebrities.

The measure was passed with support from Democrats and Republicans.

On Thursday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that Israel is “open to any critic and criticism, with one exception: Israel’s law prohibits the entry of people who call and operate to boycott Israel."

He added that Tlaib and Omar’s clear support of the BDS movement, along with their planned visit to the country, it became clear that they were planning a campaign whose sole purpose was to strengthen the boycott and negate Israel’s legitimacy.”

The congresswoman's trip has been organized by Miftah, a nonprofit organization that seeks a "sovereign, independent, and inclusive Palestinian state, which grants Palestinians their basic rights, preserves their dignity, and enjoys international recognition and respect."

One Israeli government official told CNN:

"There is a possibility that Israel will not allow the visit in its current proposed format. Professional teams and legal counsel in various government ministries are continuing to examine the decision."

In July, Omar proposed a resolution supporting the right to boycott Israel as she compared the Jewish state to boycotts of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union.
