When going to such countries, it is preferable to have a second passport without any Israeli stamps.
While they don't outright refuse entry to anyone with an Israeli stamp, officially you must go through an additional screening to get clearance.
Obviously, that's only if they see the stamp...

Don't believe everything you hear. In DXB You can have 100+ Israeli stamps on your passport and they don't care

Timatic, official passport control rules.

- Holders of passports containing an Israeli visa or stamp
  must obtain clearance through the C.I.D. (Crime
  Investigation Dept.) upon arrival.
