Gotta disagree strongly

"Their country to do with as they please...There should be zero tolerance for double standards."

The natives of a country have the right to exclude immigrants from entering that country? And this applies if the immigrants are Africans and the natives are Jews, but what if the immigrants are Jews and the natives are Arabs? ...double standard indeed.

"no one has an obligation to open their doors"

An individual has the right to exclude others from the use of his property, but that is not analogous in any way to the government's alleged right to exclude immigrants. Since the government does not own the land within its jurisdiction, it does not have the right of exclusion which comes with ownership. A government which excludes immigrants is violating the rights both of the immigrants and of the natives who would like to do business with them.
