Benjamin Netanyahu #fundie

Critics are accusing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of using "genocidal" language in a dramatic speech on Israel's war with Hamas in which he invoked the name of an ancient enemy of the Israelites from the Bible[…]
After quoting Ecclesiastes in his opposition to calls for a ceasefire, saying, "The Bible says that there is a time for peace and a time for war … this is a time for war," Netanyahu invoked the biblical name of Amalek in his address to the nation[…]
"You must remember what Amalek has done to you, says our Holy Bible," Netanyahu said, echoing the words of Deuteronomy 25:17[…]
In 1 Samuel 15:3, God tells the prophet Samuel to instruct King Saul to "go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys"

Last week, Netanyahu raised some eyebrows when he claimed the mission to defeat Hamas would go towards helping "realize the prophecy of Isaiah"
