Well, ultimately everything in the Universe is due to electrons jiggling about! In an electric current there is a flow of electrons from one point to another. With static the surface merely becomes charged with extra electrons (or in some cases with a deficit of electrons). There is no current unless and until the charge becomes so great that it escapes, and then it will be a violent single escape, a spark, or a lightning bolt, not a steady flow. It's this difference which distinguishes a resistor and a capacitor in electric circuits, one allowing current to pass, the other cutting current off until such time as sufficient charge has built up.
