Inclusion = exclusion

In a degree of doublespeak that might impress Ingsoc, an atheist group is complaining that a proposed holocaust memorial in Ohio is “exclusionary” because it memorializes all the victims of the Nazis, including Jews. According to the Freedom From Religion Foundation, for the memorial to be acceptable (i.e., inclusive) they need to leave out the symbol representing the Jews. In a holocaust memorial.

So inclusion is exclusionary, while exclusion would be inclusive.
