Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon said Tuesday that the deterioration of some nation states in the Middle East is causing chronic instability in the region, but is also creating opportunities for Israel.

Speaking at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) conference in Tel Aviv, Ya'alon said that the Sunni axis of states which includes Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Bahrain has common enemies and common interests with Israel.

These Arab states see the Muslim Brotherhood, Iran and al-Qaida as threats, much like Israel, and look to the United States for leadership, Ya'alon said.
