25:19   When Hashem your God grants you safety from all your enemies around you

One of the three commandments that the People of Israel are to fulfill after successfully conquering the Land of Israel is the obliteration of the Amalekites. The Amalekites are descendants of Esau and were the first to attack the Children of Israel after the exodus from Egypt. Amalek is more than just a nation — it represents an ideology antithetical to that of Israel: Absolute denial of Godliness in this world and a total lack of morality. For this reason, once the land is conquered and the People of Israel are settled, Israel was required to wage war against Amalek, and against their system of belief.

    THEREFORE IT SHALL BE, WHEN THE LORD YOUR GOD HAS GIVEN YOU REST FROM YOUR ENEMIES, ALL AROUND, IN WHICH THE LAND IS BEING GIVEN TO YOU TO POSSESS, AS AN INHERITANCE, THAT YOU WILL BLOT OUT THE REMEMBRANCE OF AMALEK. YOU SHALL NOT FORGET.
