Winograd, in other words, referred to a National Security Doctrine, a vision which we took upon in this research. Since its creation, the state of Israel has always faced threats and challenges related to its security, but has never had a National Security Doctrine - a document that is intended to protect and promote the state's national security interests. Therefore, our paper offers a remedy for one of Israel's most crucial diseases: the lack of strategic planning.  The goal of this policy paper is to find the methodology, or a technique, for writing such a doctrine. In order to achieve a written doctrine, two steps must be made: (1) Choosing a methodology; (2) Implementing the methodology. Essentially this paper presents the first step and lays the foundations for the second one. First, Our research shows that the implementation of the Incorporated Causal Layered  Analysis (CLA) is an appropriate methodology in order to draft an Israeli National Security Doctrine. This is the first step toward guaranteeing that every military achievement will be used in order to gain a diplomatic goal. Second, People in Israel are currently in the mindset of thinking of security as an army  with tanks and guns. Our results show that the term 'security' is much more than that. A National Security Doctrine is a document that encompasses military, diplomatic, economic, and social policies.    In essence, this research holds a triple contribution to contemporary discussion in Israel's  vital need for modern Security concepts. The first contribution is the research findings that respond to contemporary threats. Second, this research is a potential model for researching more groups, including teams of experts and laymen that could draw a bigger picture of Israel's imagery of the future. Finally, our results are the basis for actual further process. Hence, this research's uniqueness is its combination of scientific and practical elements. Our research combines the credibility which characterizes academia, and the practicality which characterizes policy papers.  To conclude, our paper creates a practical basis for a security policy which fits the model of National Resilience. Israel's late Ambassador Argov claimed thirty years ago that peace for Israel has yet to come and therefore Israel must be prepared for all scenarios.
