Hip-hop struggle anthem reaches primary in Israel Occasions of Israel. “Charbu Darbu” by Ness Ve Stilla (Google translate). “[W]we swear there gained’t be forgiveness, sons of Amalek,’ Stilla raps, evaluating Hamas to the Biblical enemy of the Israelites who have to be obliterated.” On the Amaleks, see, e.g. 1 Samuel 15:3, because the prophet Samuel directs Saul, King of Israel: “Now go, assault the Amalekites and . Don’t spare them; put to loss of life women and men, kids and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.” The ethical of the story can also be clear: God (for some definition of God) was upset with Saul, based on Samuel, as a result of Saul didn’t comply with His actual instructions and “completely destroy” every part; Saul didn’t kill all of the actually fats sheep, and didn’t kill the King of the Amaleks both.
