[Avodah] Haman and Amaleik

Just got home from shul's Purim party, and now I'm wondering...

All dates below are Seder Olam.

Sancheirev was defeated at Y-m in 3213. His dispersal of Amaleiq had to
be before this.

Purim was in 3404. 191 years later. More so if one questions the
literalness of Chazal's history.

Okay, we could identify beruach haqodesh that Haman was from Amaleiq.
But there was no Amaleiqi culture anymore to have been the cause of his
hatred of Jews.

AMD, if it is possible to pick out Amaleiqim beruach haqodesh, does this
mean that if Eliyahu haNavi were to see a baby that happened to be from
Amaleiq, he would be mechayev to kill her?

Gut Voch!
