Palestinian Islamic scholar Abu Taqi Al-Din Al-Dari said in a lesson at the Al-Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem on April 24 that under an Islamic state, Muslims will create their own smart missiles, missile ships and bomber planes.

According to a report by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), the video, which was uploaded onto the #alaqsa YouTube channel, Dari said the Islamic Republic has scientists and can hire Russian scientists. But, he added: “Nuclear weapons? We need something stronger.”

“Thus, the [future] Islamic state will become a powerful state with its own industry. The military industry will be the responsibility of the emir of Jihad,” said Dari.

“If we open any factory, even a biscuit factory, we will be able to turn it into a military factory at any given moment. We can produce spare parts there. I don’t understand military affairs, but this is what I’ve heard.”
