    Oh I see, fanatical Hellenists were merely being resisted by moderate zealots[forget the oxymoron then?] those mild mannered shrinking violets and sicari! Even the Talmud refers to those zealots of the Roman era as being responsible for the destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple. Let me put it in a way suited to the thickest of talkbackers. Hellenists of yore were modernisers, innovators who saw the new Greek ways as more enlightened and progressive. They equate well to European Renaissance and Enlightenment figures. The zealots in the renaissance were the Roman Church. Now who were the fanatics again? According to your method it would be the great renaissance figures like Descartes and Giordano Bruno! Now if I were to appeal to the most bigoted and Lieberman like right wing talk backers. Todays would be modernisers in the Islamic world and the secular west are reviled and violently opposed by zealots in the Islamic world. People like al Queda who do of course regard their foes as the *fanatics*! Of course you would have it by your own contorted reasoning[if you were either honest or consistent] that it is the west or the moderate Muslims who are the fanatics for "provoking" the innocent zealots and staining the name of allah with their persecution of the noble faith of Islam! That's the trouble with perverting history so completely. It only works if done in strict isolation entirely subjectively and without allowing logic or consistency to enter ones calculations. Not to worry though, judging by your post, there is little danger of logic or consistency playing any part in your thinking.
