We do not say Hallel, which was clearly what was intended.

Arguing with the Meshekh Chokhmah and the author of Lekha Dodi (just
to name the two I already cited) requires more than a rhetorical "this
again?" to make your point.

Again, there is a list of mar'eh meqomos culled from previous iterations
at <http://www.aishdas.org/asp/2007/07/compassion-for-our-enemies.shtml>.
What you take as self-evident is against the Pesiqta deR' Kaahane, against
the Yalqut who quotes it, against the Perishah, against the Shibolei
haLeqet, the BY, the Taz, the Kaf haChaim, the Netziv, and others.

No matter how tightly you cherish your understanding, it is NOT the one
that we actually found in the sources. Repeating it again in a tone
as though someone is wrong to ignore your preference in favor of the
well-established doesn't actually prove your point.

Tir'u baTov!
