Gaza Islamic scholar Wael Al-Zard said in a September 14, 2022 show on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that when the Jews pay Palestinian laborers in Israel, they are actually giving back to them money that was "rightfully" theirs. He elaborated that the “filthy” Jews are not doing the Palestinian laborers any favors, and that they have been sucking the blood of Palestinians’ resources for over 70 years. Al-Zard explained that the Palestinians would have been “many times richer” than the Jews, had the latter left the country.

Wael Al-Zard: "Some laborers who support a family wish they could work for the Jews, in our occupied land, because laborers earn $100 per day there. That's fine, but our people should know that those $100 are rightfully theirs, and not a gift by the Jews. They are paying you with your own money."
"Our money is being returned to us by means of those filthy [Jews]. They are not doing us any favors. They are not being generous. Had they left our country, we would have been many times richer than them. The Jews, who have been occupying our land for 70 years or more, have been sucking the blood out of our resources for a long time, and to this day."
