Assessment of Israel’s Position in the 1991 Gulf War

Özet   1991 Körfez Krizi Orta Doğu’nun şu anki vaziyetinin şekillenmesinde en etkili faktörlerden birisi olmuştur. Bu kriz hakkında birçok çalışma yapılmış ve İsrail’in saldırıya uğramasına ragman pasif tutumunu devam ettirmesi araştırmacılar için ilgi çekici bir husus olarak öne çıkmıştır. Saddam Hüseyin’in Kuveyt’I işgal etme kararını takip eden bu savaş hülasa olarak anlatılacak ve İsrail’in aldığı bu kararın oluştuğu dış yapı aktarılmaya çalışılacaktır. Israil bu savaş dışında Ortadoğu’nun en aktif ve agresif devleti olarak nitelendirilebilecek ve günümüz topraklarını revizyonist bir yaklaşımla genişletme amacında olan bir devlet olarak kabul edilecektir. Bu yaklaşım İsrail’İn 1991 Savaşı’ndaki pasif tutumunu daha ön plana çıkaracağı ve problematize edeceği için tercih edilmiştir. Bu davranış, İsrail’İn o döenmdeki sosyal, askeri ve diplomatic gücü dikkate alınarak analiz edilecektir. Bu analiz sonresında İsrail’in bu kararı kendi fayda-zarar analizleri sonucunda alıp almadığı sorusu üzerinde durulacak ve buna cevap aranacaktır. İsrail’in bu tavrının bu şekilde analizi ile bu hareketin rasyonel bir hareket olup olmadığı ve süpriz devlet davranışı olarak sayılıp sayılmayacağına bakılacaktır. Ve bu seçimin sonucu olarak İsrail’in elde ettiği çıktılar sonuç bölümünde analiz edilecektir.

Assessment of Israel’s Position in the 1991 Gulf War

Abstract   The Persian Gulf War was one of the defining incidents took place which shaped the current situation of the Middle East. There has been a vast amount of studies about this conflict but on a specific case why Israel stayed out of the conflict even though she was attacked continued to be a charming question for researchers. Saddam’s decision on invading Kuwait and the War following this is going to be summarized in order to present the structure when this incident took place and also to build an environment in which Israel’s decision on not joining the war is going to be analyzed. Israel is perceived as one of the most aggressive countries of the Middle East mostly because of the Wars that she was involved with and the grand projects that she wants to be feasible. With this assumption it is rather hard to understand Israel’s passive behaviour during the Persian Gulf War which is going be analyzed in this study. Israel’s state in that period and her capacity will be analyzed in order to understand this decision was taken by Israel or was sort of dictated by another country. Possible reasons that resulted with Israel’s passive attitude will be under the scope to explain what Israel did was rather rational or not. And the advantages and negative results that Israel enjoyed and suffered will be tried to be shown at the later part of the study.
