  2. The reason it was justified for Mordechai to take Haman’s house, is, because Mordechai was not the one to kill Haman. But, The Yidden, if they would pillage the Goyim’s property it would suggest that, that was the motive of their killings.
    We must also emphasise that Achashveirus himself did not know the contents of the sealed letters, that’s why he didn’t know that the Gzeiro was aimed at Yidden. Achashveirus embraced Modrechai Hayehudi even after Hamman’s letters went out.

    TO #5 comment regarding Achashverosh is only according to the Malbim, But according to everyone else (including the gemara) he knew exactly what he was doing. ( I have tried for a long time to find a yishuv regarding the malbim, considering the fact the gemara says fakeret what he does, so if you have one please share)

  5. #7
    The Gemoroh is hard to understand, How could it be, that Achashveiros knew, that he was going to hurt Yidden, when at the same time, he is respecting Mordechai Hayehudi?
    And if the King knew that the plan was to hurt Yidden, how did Esther dear to call Haman, Tzar, V’oiyev, based on this plan.
    And why was the King so shocked, if he knew all along?
