Well, there were speakers who were not able to attend Wikimanias in Haifa and Cairo, to start with, because of similar bans, and the general response then was "Whatever place we choose, someone is always discriminated". I am not sure whether this is a healthy attitude or not, but I do not see why the US travel ban leads to a statement whereas existing bans say in Arab

The US ban is fragile, poorly supported in law; the others are entrenched and what we do is not likely to influence them.
