What's missing from CNN-International's weather cities?

I was just watching CNN International and they have a brief worldwide city weather forecast. Naturally I wanted to see tomorrow's weather for Jerusalem.

No Jerusalem.

OK, I figured: I guess they choose Tel Aviv to represent Israel.

No Tel Aviv.

This seems to have been going on for years, as I found this 2008 video from CNN-I that shows the same cities as it shows now.

Tehran rates - presumably for the many Germans who travel there to skirt the international sanctions against Iran - but Israel doesn't quite make the cut.
