Yesterday I wrote about how the Women in Parliaments Global Forum is being held in Amman, Jordan - and Israel has been banned from attending because of Jordanian bigotry.

I wondered how involved  the Women in Parliaments Forum was in this, and it appears that they were fully complicit.

Here's one of their posters advertising the event from a month ago:

Even then, Israel was not included on the map:


What makes this all the more remarkable, and repugnant, is that Israel has been a big booster of the WIP.

I mentioned that in 2013, Israel won an award from WIP, and Israeli Chief Justice Daphne Barak-Erez gave a speech.

In 2015, another of WIP's conferences was held in Jerusalem, Israel.

Their Leadership webpage features a quote from Binyamin Netanyahu.


But this year these women, who pretend to be working for noble causes, allowed themselves to be complicit in excluding an entire nation because Jordan's bigotry.

The idea that a group of people who have been historically marginalized was so quick to do the same to another group of historically marginalized people is simply sickening.

An apparent attendee sent me this ironic tweet:


This was corroborated by other tweeters at the summit:




Write to the sponsors of the event - including Microsoft, Merck, Salesforce, Facebook and E&Y - and ask them whether they support excluding Israel from this forum.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
