Haman

Haman

I am Haman, a proud Amalekite,
Jews don't like me, hate my sight.
I hate children, and children hate me,
Especially those that say Mode Ani.
I planned to kill them; what a plot!
Then came Mordechai, and look what I've got!
I made for him a gallows fifty cubits tall,
But they hanged me instead, with my sons all.
But now and again from the grave rise I
In the person of Hitler or other such guy.
I try my luck to kill a few Jews,
But pity the fool that steps in my shoes.
Yet, if not for me, you'd be in school today,
So give me a hand, and hurray!

Stalin was the Haman of the 50's. He died on the die of Purim, March 9 1953. When his decree was suppose to take place to kill 3 million Jews. Oh how the Lord works...

Haman was a very bad person. He was Amalekite. He was used the king and almost killed all the Jews. He didn't like the Jews and if Mordechia hadn't told Queen Esther to say something to the King the Jews would be killed. So the gallow he built to use for Mordechia the used for him. That is why Jews are alive today.

He means that if not for Haman who wanted to kill the Jewish people, the Purim story would have never happened, Purim wouldn't be a holiday and we wouldn't have vacation on that day !
