Question
Are the so-called palestinians the amalekites of today. The amalekites killed the children and eldery of our ancestors just like the palestinians do. Why does history repeat itself in such a negative way twoards the jewish people in zion?
Answer
After Sennacherib moved those nations he conquered from one place to another and they intermingled with each other we no longer know who are Amalekites, who are Canaanites etc. The Arabs of the Land of Israel, like other Arabs, are seen as descendants of Yishmael and other Bnei Ketora. What is important is that the Jewish People use the strength G-d gave us to prevent and deter the kind of Nazi attacks on us that we have witnessed over the past few years.
