Am Donnerstag, den 5. September 2019, traf aus dem Generalkonsulat des Staates Israel in München eine Nachricht mit u.a. diesem Inhalt ein:
... habe nun Rückmeldung aus Jerusalem erhalten und ich muss Ihnen leider mitteilen, dass die vier Plätze der internationalen Pressedelegation anderweitig besetzt wurden. Ich bitte Sie um Ihr Verständnis und hoffe sie haben dennoch eine spannende wie interessante Zeit auf der DLD TLV.
, worauf die Teilnahme zugunsten einer anderen Einladung nach Luxembourg abgesagt wurde.
Das am 22. Juli 2019 zugestellte vorläufige Programm bezieht sich zunächst auf den vorangegangenen Tag und macht klar, dass es an diesem Wahl-Tag andere Schwerpunkte in Israel geben wird, als den Besuch des Festivals .
Ebenso spannend dürften sich aber auch diese ersten zwei Tage nach den Wahlen, heute und morgen, gestalten :
