Amalek is the mythical, eternal enemy of the Jews. It preys on the weak amongst us: “Remember what Amalek did unto thee by the way, when ye were come forth out of Egypt; How he met thee by the way, and smote the hindmost of thee.” (Deut. 25:17) We are commanded to never forget the existential threat of Amalek to the Jewish peoples.
“The Lord will be at war against the Amalekites from generation to generation.” (Exodus 17:10) Amalek has many names:
- Angela Davis
- Mark Lamont Hill
- Alice Walker
- Jeremy Corbyn
- Ilhan Omar
- White Nationalists
The main reason to inflame hysteria about Amalek is to extort the Jews to support your favored political organization. For example, Zionists claim that if we don’t support them, then the Muslims will overrun Israel resulting in ‘the destruction of the only Jewish state’. Socialist Jews threaten that Amalek will destroy us if we don’t join their workers’ collective. These techniques have worked very well in the past – perhaps too well. By inflaming resentment in the larger community, as France is now doing by enacting an expansive definition of ‘antisemitism’, they have led ultimately to our destruction. However in the mean time we can exploit sympathy to divert attention from sex crimes. Though this tactic appears to be less effective than it once was.
Jewish factions are deeply divided on many issues:
- Socialism vs capitalism
- One state vs two
- Zionism vs BDS
- Haredi vs Secular
These factions despise each other – more than Amalek itself. The only reason we are not ripping each others’ faces off is because of our common enemy. When Amalek realizes the implications of this simple fact, it will have all the power.
Therefore when the Lord your God has given you rest from all your enemies around you, … you shall blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven; you shall not forget!
