Science in the Service of Politicians

Isolating themselves from Israeli research can hardly be worth the 'political points' the Brussels bureaucrats thought they might score by censuring Israel.

To the EU bureaucrats in Brussels it must surely seem like a victory. They have succeeded in imposing on Israel their demand that scientific cooperation of Israeli scientists with EU scientists, within the framework of the Horizon 2020 program, will be limited to Israeli institutions inside the 1949 armistice lines, and to research within those lines.
