Will EU exclude Israel from research fund?

EU can decide to exclude Israel from its uipcoming scientific research and development fund. 
About 154 organizations from 16 countries have urged EU to exclude "Israeli militzry companies" from the upcoming research. 
"The EU has been funding security-industrial research for many years," the letter, which called on the EU to immediately exclude all Israeli military and security companies from its framework programmes, read.
"European taxpayers' money is being channeled to military companies, among them many Israeli corporations, under the disguise of research and a promise that the technologies and techniques developed will be used solely for civilian purposes," the letter continued.
