Home Front Defense Minister Avi Dichter on Sunday warned that the Muslim Brotherhood is co-opting the Arab Spring with the end-goal of creating an Islamic "caliphate" that would span the Middle East.

"What started in Tunis and continued in Egypt is ongoing in Syria, and will threaten Jordan and other Arab countries," Dichter said. "The Brotherhood already has an outpost in the Palestinian territories, in the form of Hamas."
