We are the Amalekites in the eyes of jews.
I honestly had to look that up:
A member of an ancient nomadic people of Canaan said in the Bible to be descendants of Esau's grandson Amalek.
a tribe that dwelt in Arabia Petraea, between the Dead Sea and the Red Sea. They
were not the descendants of Amalek, the son of Eliphaz, for they existed in the
days of Abraham (Gen. 14:7). They were probably a tribe that migrated from the
shores of the Persian Gulf and settled in Arabia. "They dwelt in the land of
the south...from Havilah until thou comest to Shur" (Num. 13:29; 1 Sam. 15:7).
They were a pastoral, and hence a nomadic race. Their kings bore the hereditary
name of Agag (Num. 24:7; 1 Sam. 15:8). They attempted to stop the Israelites
when they marched through their territory (Deut. 25:18), attacking them at
Rephidim (Ex. 17:8-13; comp. Deut. 25:17; 1 Sam. 15:2). They afterwards
attacked the Israelites at Hormah (Num. 14:45). We read of them subsequently as
in league with the Moabites (Judg. 3:13) and the Midianites (Judg. 6:3). Saul
finally desolated their territory and destroyed their power (1 Sam. 14:48;
15:3), and David recovered booty from them (1 Sam. 30:18-20). In the Babylonian
inscriptions they are called Sute, in those of Egypt Sittiu, and the Amarna
tablets include them under the general name of Khabbati, or "plunderers."
Artaxias if what you say is true, the only response I could give is: WTF?
