Nehushtan: Political Islam 'big winner' of Arab Spring

Ido Nehushtan told The Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference on Wednesday that Islam ended up winning most from the Arab Spring.
"The big winner of the new order is political Islam," said Nehushtan, a former Commander in Chief of the Israeli Air Force. "The motto of Islamic parties is 'Islam is the solution.' It will be up to them to deliver solutions."
Nehushtan also warned of an intensification of weapons proliferation in the Middle East, and said that Israel must pay close attention to occurrences in Syria, where a civil war is threatening to topple Syrian President Bashar Assad.
"Syrian chemical weapons falling into the wrong hands isn't just a problem for Israel, but the whole world, due to the threat of global terror," he told the conference attendees.
