Couple uneasy with false visa information

Q. We hoped to attend a symposium, “The Middle East in the 21st Century,” on a ship that would dock in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman and Kuwait. Our tour director said everyone would be identified on visa applications as Christian. Because we are Jewish we felt uneasy and withdrew. Should the sponsoring organizations hold events in countries that bar Jews? Shouldn't they have told us unprompted that they would file false visa information? – Lillian Cartwright, Alan Skolnikoff, San Francisco
