Rambam 'ilchos elachim hapter * 'alacha +#f they do not a$ree to a peaceful settlement, or if they a$ree to a peaceful settlement, but refuse to accept the seen mitot, war should be wa$ed a$ainst them. All males past ma-ority should be killed. Their money and their children should be taken as spoil, but neither women or children should be killed, as euteronomy /0!1+ states! 23ut the women and the children... take as spoil.4 2The children2 refer to males below the a$e of ma-ority. The aboe applies to a
milchemet hareshut 
 fou$ht with other nations. 'oweer, if either the seen nations or Amalek refuse to accept a peaceful settlement, not one soul of them may be left alie as
ibid.
 /0!1561* states! 2o this to all the cities that ... are not the cities of these nations. 'oweer, from the cities of these nations,... do not leae a soul alie.2 Similarly, in re$ard to Amalek, euteronomy /5!17 states! 28bliterate the memory of Amalek.2 'ow do we know that these commands are only referrin$ to those who did not accept a peaceful settlement& Joshua 11!176/0 states! 2There was no city which
 
accepted a peaceful settlement with the children of #srael e9cept the hiites who lied in :ibeon. All the rest, they con;uered in battle. This was inspired by :od, %ho stren$thened their hearts to en$a$e in battle a$ainst #srael so that they would be destroyed.2 <rom these statements, we can infer that a peaceful settlement was offered,  but they did not accept it.

=esef ishna on Aboe RambamThe Raaad writes! This is a mistake, because een if they made peace, they would still need to accept upon themseles the mitos (3nei "oach), end ;uote. %hat he (the Raaad) means to say is that een if they make peace and accept upon themseles ta9es and seritude, we kill them. 3ut we can answer for our master (The Rambam) that included in >the concept of? 4makin$ peace4 is the acceptance of the seen >"oachide? laws. <or if they accepted these seen laws, they would no lon$er be included in the cate$ory of the 4seen >idolatrous? nations4 >which
 Bnei Yisrael 
 are commanded to annihilate when they enter the land?, nor in the cate$ory of 4Amalek4@ they would be considered like >any other? fit "oachides1. Accordin$ to this Rambam and =esef ishna, is the command to wipe out Amalek a national war, ie, a war a$ainst a specific nation, or is it somethin$ else&/. 'ow can Amalek escape e9tinction&
