Sheikh Al-Qaradhawi "The Resistance in Palestine, Iraq, and Lebanon Must Go On"; "We Stand Alongside Our Brothers in Hamas and Islamic Jihad"

(MEMRI) Sheikh Yousef al-Qaradhawi, the spiritual guide of many Islamist organizations across the world (including the Muslim Brotherhood), attended the fourth international conference of the Al-Quds Institution on Dec. 4-6 in Yemen, together with Khaled Mash'al, head of Hamas' Political Bureau, and Sheikh 'Ali Akbar Mohtashemi, an advisor to the president of Iran. At the conference, al-Qaradhawi said: "There is armed resistance and armed jihad - military jihad - and there is no choice but that this should continue. There is no choice but to continue the resistance in Palestine, in Iraq, in Lebanon, and in every country that has been conquered by foreigners." "But there are...schemes being concocted to stop this resistance, under the name of 'the peace process.'...We must resist this." "Oh brothers, our weapons must remain in our hands. We will not lay down our weapons. We will not abandon the resistance as long as one inch of Palestine is occupied."
