Summary/Abstract: This study aims at determining the projection of the norms of Jus ad Bellum and Jus in Bello, which cover principles of war in the context of international law, in the Old Testament. Thus, on the one hand, it is tried to specify the understanding regarding war in Judaism, and on the other hand, to foresee the applicability capacity and limits of this understanding in Israel’s security policy. Because the declaration of the State of Israel as Jewish state constructs a strong ground for politicians who want to convert the religious commandments into security policy and for public sectors who require security policies to be in line with these commandments, the infrastructure formed by the religious tenets for the legitimacy of war and the way of its execution comes into prominence. The goal of this study is not to explain Israeli security policy through this spiritual basis, but to constitute an analysis parameter that can be utilized along with other expositive parameters by drawing attention to the conceptual framework manifested by the Old Testament.
