Breaking Israel News: A Hebrew language search for Haman the Agagi on Google produces an unexpected yet appropriate result: an image of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former president of Iran notorious for his extreme hatred of Israel.
Purim, a joyous holiday children anticipate with joy all year long, is only a few weeks away. As part of the holiday theme, many parents are searching on the internet for costume ideas.

In fact, chapter 5 is titled Haman the Agagite: Antichrist #3.
Excerpt: “Haman was an Agagite, a descendant of Agag, king of Amalek. An Agagite is an Amalekite, and Amalek was a descendant of Esau. Haman’s lineage is given in the Targum Sheni as follows:
Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, son of Srach, son of Buza, son of Iphlotas, son of Dyosef, son of Dyosim, son of Prome, son of Ma’dei, son of Bla’akan, son of Intimrom, son of Harirom, son of Sh’gar, son of Nigar, son of Farmashta, son of Vayezatha, son of Agag, son of Sumki, son of Amalek, son of the concubine of Eliphaz, firstborn son of Esau.”

Chapter 6 (here) has a map that details how the blood of Amalek, Esau’s illegitimate grandson, found its way to Persia, modern-day Iran.

The same literal view of God’s word tells us how it will end:
- Isaiah 63:1-3
- Revelation 19:13-16
