You’re limited to 50 seeds per taxa imported.  I don’t think anyone counts the seed but the inspectors can sure tell a handful of seed is more than 50.  I don’t know of any way for you to sell Israeli wildflower seeds in the US without getting an import permit and a phytosanitary permit.  I think you’d also need someone at this end to receive the seed and act as a distributor.  Although I’m sure with Etsy and Ebay all kinds of seed slides in illegally.  But to import legally you’d need a phyto and permit.
