A lot of Israeli Jews of a certain age were born in Yemen, Iran, Iraq or Syria. They will be subject to this ban, even if they now hold only Israeli nationality.Israel has a far stricter immigration policy-and a permanent one-than anything proposed by Trump. They are the only country with a total ban on all Muslim (and all non-Jewish) migrants.
They let in anybody claiming to be a Jew, as long as they have never been baptised (even in infancy) as a Christian. And yes, some of those are practising Muslims. They are so desperate to maintain a non-Arab majority that they are now trying to prove that the Pashtun are a Lost Tribe. Meanwhile, even Peruvian Indians have been "converted to Judaism" and put on the plane as a single action.
A lot of the Russians in Israel seem to be Christians but I don't know if they've ever been baptised.
Some of those "Returned Jews" refuse to eat kosher food on principle, and insist on taking their IDF Oaths on the New Testament alone. That latter has nothing to do with Russian Orthodoxy, which keeps Old Testament figures as Saints and which venerates icons of them. It can only be plain, old anti-Semitism. A few years ago, there even turned out to be a neo-Nazi gang. But hey, anyone but the Arabs? And anything but having numbers of children sufficient to the task in hand? Apparently so.
A ban on Muslim immigrants to Israel? They are not making much of a job of it. Western Zionists are in a world of their own, they have absolutely no idea what Israeli society is really like.
