There are strong historical ties between Palestine and the member states of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) residing on the Arabian side of the Persian Gulf. These historical ties are as old as the Palestine issue, and the relations between the two sides go back to the turn of the Palestinian issue, which emerged as a result of the systematic Jewish immigration that started at the end of the 19th century, to an occupation in the 1930s. As a result of the mutual relations that started in this process, important historical ties have developed between the Gulf societies and the Palestinians. As a result, the Palestine issue has become an identity issue in the Gulf countries and has been the main parameter in their foreign policies. Since the strong historical ties between the Palestinians, the Palestinian cause, and the Gulf countries are not reflected in the literature, they are not known enough. The main aim of this article is to contribute to filling this gap in the literature. This study answers the question of how the historical ties between Palestine and the Gulf have been influential in Gulf politics. The main claim of this study is that the Palestinian issue has historically played a determinant role in the shaping of regional politics in the Middle East and the Gulf in particular. In the historical process, the period leading to the establishment of Israel, the Arab-Israeli Wars, the Peace period, and the current period of normalization with Israel, which started with the Abraham Agreements, determined the regional dynamics as the dominant factor in the Palestinian issue. While the 1973 Oil Embargo was the most striking example at this point and became a historical turning point with regional and global consequences in Gulf politics, the normalization agreement of some Gulf countries with Israel in 2020 became a new turning point in the Gulf politics.
