Where's the Outrage Over Discrimination Against Jews/Israelis?

Let's be even-handed here. So many people all over the world and especially in the United States condemned POTUS Trump's rather badly and hastily constructed/worded ban on those born in some Muslim countries on entering the United States, but where's the condemnation, the outrage over the ban by many Muslim countries on Jews/Israelis?
Here a list of all the Muslim countries that ban Israeli Jews:
  • Syria
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Yemen
  • Libya 
  • Algeria
  • Bangladesh
  • Brunei
  • Kuwait
  • Lebanon
  • Malaysia
  • Oman
  • Pakistan
  • Sudan
  • Saudi Arabia
  • United Arab Emirates
This hypocrisy isn't something new. There are Jews who have to hold duplicate passports, because they travel to Israel and to some of the listed countries.

If banning the entrance of certain nationalities and visa/entry stamps is immoral when used against Muslim countries, then the principle must hold when it's used against Jews or Israelis. If it isn't then this is just another sign of widespread international antisemitism and self-hate by some Jews.
