The Middle East may one day turn into “one Islamic caliphate,” Israeli Homefront Defense Minister Avi Dichter said on Monday at a conference of the International Institute for Counterterrorism at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, Israel Hayom reported.

“The Arab world, especially our neighbors, has embarked on a long journey which will end in the Middle East becoming a bloc of countries controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, and could even turn into one Islamic caliphate,” Dichter said.

He also said that Arab and Western intelligence agencies failed to predict the events of the Arab Spring.

“The theory that the Muslim Brotherhood cannot launch a revolution proved to be false,” Dichter said. “The Muslim Brotherhood adopted a strategy of taking over states, and that was the big surprise. We all put together intelligence pictures and forecasts based on what Arab intelligence and security agencies saw. But when they misread [the situation], all those who fed off their information were equally mistaken. Arab intelligence agencies failed at understanding what was happening beneath the surface and Western intelligence bodies received rotting fruits from trees that were dying.”
