Am Yisroel Chai

In Exodus, we read of the Amalakites who attacked the Israelites from the rear killing the old and the young as well as stragglers.  This brings us to the particular situation of the Amalekites. Their story is that they, unprovoked, attacked Israel from behind as they had just finished crossing the Red Sea, and Israel went to war with them. Because of this and their many other sins, God vowed to blot them out from under heaven (Ex. 17:14).The Bible presents the Amalekites as living in the Negev area, now in modern Israel. While the Amalekite nation no longer exists, the memory of a devious enemy lives on in all forms of antisemitism carried out against Jewish people.  Guess where Gaza is located.
