by the time the "freedom fighters" generation there was this King Alexader Yannai, who was not a very nice person, in fact, Moshe Shamir wrote an autobiographical novel about him. He is credited for "neutralizing" the Sanhedrin for not approving one of his decisions.. That was enough for them to set the military side of the Macabees in favor of the homily about the candles, which may or may not have occurred. Interesting, too, when the novel came out, "the Old Man" had this feeling that there were some intellectuals that were out to get him, and Moshe Shamir was the head of the pack. Yeah, there was a military victory, but the closing of the Haftorah for Shabbat Hannukah offered was a broad hint to the generatiions, "Not my by strength, nor by power, I am the Lord".
