Tel Aviv (dpa) - A photo of German Chancellor Angela Merkel showing her as the lone female surrounded by around two dozen Israeli and German businessmen has stirred controversy in Israel.

"Im am not ready to say that this is simply negligence, this simply cannot happen," Ayelet Nahmias-Verbin, a lawmaker with the centre-left Zionist Union party told dpa on Sunday.

The photo was taken during Merkel‘s two-day visit to Israel earlier in the week.

According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, Merkel addressed the lack of women during the meeting saying "it would be nice to include a woman at the next session." 

"Apparently this is a field dominated by men and this is not meant as criticism," she added.

Nahmias-Verbin sent a letter to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Economy Minister Eli Cohen on Saturday lambasting the "embarrassing" photo and criticizing the Netanyahu government for what she says is a larger issue of a lack of women on government delegations.

"The prime minister doesn‘t have women on his delegations," Nahmias-Verbin said Sunday, adding she believed he did not do enough to acknowledge women.

WMN an Israeli organization that promotes women in the high-tech industry is organizing a mass protest photo on Wednesday to counter the all-male image.
