The Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection is heavily involved in the conference, and it released a very impressive book-length document that describes well over 200 Israeli companies that have technologies to help the world's environment, in the categories of Climate, Solid Waste Management, Water Resources, Building and Construction, Agriculture and Extreme Events and Disasters. Any way you look at it, Israel is a leader in environmental protection, and as such must be a key player in any conference on the topic.
But...it is in Marrakech, Morocco.
So the local Arabs are very, very upset not only that Israelis are in their country, but that Israel's flag is fluttering among the flags of the other attendees.
Reports say that the flag is a "provocative step against the feelings of Moroccans and honorable people of the nation."
It's microaggression! The entire country of Morocco must be a safe space where people cannot be subjected to this horrible sight that one needs to go out of their way to even find!
Air pollution, clean water shortages, poisonous chemicals in food - all of that pales in importance to the feelings of Arabs who know that their country is hosting the Jewish state. And if there is something more important to the world than Arab feelings, I'd like to know what it is.
