Eton's "Middle East" scholarship

Eton College, one of the most prestigious academic institutions in England, offers something called the "Horizon Foundation" scholarship. Here are its criteria:
Eton offers an annual scholarship made possible by the generosity of a benefactor who is funding a Sixth Form Scholarship which is designated to benefit a boy coming from the Middle East, preferably the Palestinian Territories, Lebanon, Jordan or Syria.
Do you think that any Israelis would have a chance if they applied? Or is the definition of "Middle East" a bit more restrictive than mere geography?
