Palestinian Authority extols jihad with money

February 14, 2010

This slipped by me.  MEMRI transcribed the remarks of Mahmoud Al-Habbash, minister of religious endowments (waqf) for the Palestinian Authority, who delivered a sermon on Palestinian television last month saying, “When you use your money for the sake of Allah, in defense of the religion of Allah, of the Muslims, of their countries, and of all that is sacred to them – you are a mujahid for the sake of Allah.”

That, folks, is the essence of the money jihad, or Al Jihad bi-al-Mal.  For anybody who doesn’t know, a “mujahid” is a Muslim holy warrior–a jihadist.  These comments echo statements made by Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Osama bin Laden.
