Israel Minister Avi Dichter Warns of Muslim Brotherhood using Arab Spring for Islamic Caliphate
Is the Arab Spring set to turn into an Islamist Winter? At the world summit of the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism, Israeli Home Front Minister Avi Dichter has warned that the Muslim Brotherhood is using the Arab Spring to create an Islamic caliphate. He said that last year's revolutions in Tunisia and Egypt and the ongoing uprising in Syria will threaten Jordan and other Arab countries, mentioning that the 'Muslim Brotherhood already has an outpost in the Palestinian territories in the form of Hamas'. Dichter went on to state that the fall of Assad's regime is inevitable and that whatever takes its place could have serious consequences for Syria's western neighbours, Jordan and Lebanon.
