The nation of Amalek sets itself apart as being eternally at war with Gd, (Ex. 17:16). We are commanded to eradicate the memory of Amalek from the world, (Deut 25:19). Yet Maimonides codifies an option for peaceful surrender even to this wicked nation of Amalek, (hil' melachim 6:6).
Does anyone dispute this view? It would appear to be at odds with the M'chilta, (see footnote), where R' Eliezer says that Gd swore upon His Throne that any individuals from the nations that came to Israel seeking to convert would be accepted, except for Amalek. Do any other medieval codes or commentators follow suit?
