PA Minister of Religious Affairs: Jihad not possible now so carry out "popular resistance"

Friday sermon, Speaker: PA Minister of Religious Affairs, Mahmoud Al-Habbash
"Jihad is an obligation whose manner changes from time to time. All that we are carrying out in Palestine, in Jerusalem and its environs, is Jihad…”
"This is the obligation of our times, right now. We cannot fulfill other forms of the obligations. [While] perhaps our conditions do not allow for that, our abilities do not allow for it, nevertheless it is our obligation to carry out what we are able to, and what we are able [to do] is the civilian and non-violent, sensible, wise and mature popular resistance."
