    "Fanatic helenist jews" JP Really you ought to choose your analogies more carefully. The Hellenist Jews of yore were indeed the moderates who opposed the fanatical zealots of their era. It was the zealots who opposed the Greco-Syrians and later the Romans even resorting to assassinating Jewish opponents[sicari]leading directly to numerous wars and the eventual destruction of the Temple. Not the Hellenist 'fanatics' LOL! Those Hellenists would be best compared with today's J-Street crowd in the US or perhaps the Peace Now or Meretz types in Israel. whereas the zealots would be best aligned with the religious nut-jobs of the West Bank and Old City and their far right facilitators in the Likud and Yisroel Beteinu along with AIPAC in the US. Hellenistic 'fanatics' indeed!
