A friend sent me a YouTube string I found extremely interesting so I decided to share it with you all.

What the Bible and Historical Context Say About Israel (and Hamas on youTube)
Genesis 6:11& 13 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before Me for the earth is filled with violence through them; and behold, I will destroy them with the earth.
This is the first time the word hamas is used in the Bible.
Hamas= defined in Strong’s Concordance (H2555)
Violence, cruelty, wrong, false, cruel, damage, injustice, oppressor, unrighteous.
But just as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Further mentions of hamas:
Because of the violence to your brother Jacob, shame will cover you and you will be cut off forever.
Obadiah is prophesying to Edom (the descendants of Esau). Edomites live in the desert of Israel and Jordan where Petra is. He’s pronouncing judgment on the Edomites for the violence that they showed toward Israel when the Babylonians were destroying Israel, the Edomites were cheering them on.
One of the descendants of Esau is Amalek. Amalek is the first person to attack Israel when they came out of Egypt.
The most notorious descendant of Amalek is Haman, who in the book of Esther, was the person who wanted to commit genocide of all the Jews. He was a descendant of Esau who God said to Obadiah that He was going to judge the Edomites because of their violence.
Haman was in Persia. Persia is modern-day Iran. Haman was a descendant of Amalek. Modern-day Iran is behind Hamas. Hamas’ stated purpose is to wipe Israel off the map (just like Haman tried to do).
When Amalek struck Israel, he attacked the women and children—those who could not defend themselves. Amalek is a spirit loose in the world today.
Esther overcame Haman’s plans by fasting, praying and interceding. Haman ended up on the gallows he had built for Esther’s uncle.
The current Jewish year is 5784. It is a year of transition—of open doors. We’re in the decade of the peh which means mouth or door.
The first letter of the word “prayer” in Hebrew is peh. It occurs 84 times in the Bible. The only time the number is written is when Anna spent her life in the temple praying. She Saw the infant Jesus when Joseph and Mary brought Him to the temple the first time. (Luke 2:36-38)
Now is the time of intercession.
In the Hebrew Bible Genesis 27:22 says that when Jacob came close to Isaac for Jacob to feel his arms Jacob said, “The voice of Jacob is weak, but the hands of Esau are strong.”
The Rabbi’s interpretation: When the voice of Jacob is weak, the hands of Esau are strong. When the voice of prayer, praise, and declaration is weak, the hands of Esau become strong and begin to win the battle. We must intercede for Israel NOW!
