Hanukkah Stubs

Cleaning out my notebook.  Ideas to develop more fully later:

  1. What do people really mean by "Freedom of Religion"? Religious freedom vs. Freedom of MY religion.
  2. Israel (Macabbees): Palestein = Assyrian Greeks: Israel (Modern)
  3. Was the Macabbee war really the first war for religious freedom?
  4. How much are the origins of our holy days romanticized, ala the US Founding Fathers?
  5. We as modern, secular, integrated Jews are the ones "Seduced by the alien culture" that Macabbees opposed.
