Abstract:

A recommendation is made that the State Department should consider using a management information system for developing and testing hypotheses on Israeli decision making. Using the Six Day War of 1967 as the scenario, 12 major Israeli decisions made prior to the war were examined by stages time, information available, size and type decision unit, alternatives, values of the leaders, and reinforcement received for the decisions. Using a literature search, Zionism, government organization, and Israeli leaders were studied to determine how decisions are made, what influences exist, and what the values of the leaders were. Eight hypotheses were developed on future Israeli decision making based on these studies.
