re: Chanuka: ‘Who, Whom’?

To recap: whom did the Maccabees battle, first and foremost? Not the non-Jews, but Jewish renegades.

I meant to add: Yeshayahu Leibowitz said, regarding the schism of observant and non-observant Jews in Israel, that civil war, like “Pilegesh Begiv’ah” (Shoftim chapter 19) is not an unthinkable eventuality.
