  14. [T]his is the war between the sons of light and the sons of darkness. We will not let up on our mission until the light overcomes the darkness — the good will defeat the extreme evil that threatens us and the entire world.

  15. You must remember what Amalek has done to you, says our Holy Bible. And we do remember.

  16. We are striking our enemies with unprecedented might. I emphasize that this is only the beginning.
