Would it be possible to have the whole phrase in which the Hebrew word
for battle/war is used?

Ken George made the choice to exclude some loanwords from English from
his dictionaries. But not others. No real rationale for why he likes
some and dislikes others. I don't think that practice should be
emulated. In the case of milchamath, well, I'd include it in a
dictionary, noting its source and rationale. (George, to be fair, does
the same, though he says "Keigwin seems to have used a Hebrew word by
mistake", which is implausible. Keigwin certainly wrote the word on
purpose.)

I should think that the use of "milchamath" (KS milhamath) would be
jocular or to make a rhyme in poetry.
