8 valuable #Hannukah history facts:

1. The war waged by the Maccabees was exclusively to repel religious suppression not to attain sovereignty. (Prayer Text)

2. The complete defeat of the Greeks happened many years after the #Hanukkah miracle. (Josephus)
3. The Maccabees never achieved full sovereignty in the Holy land they were just afforded autonomy under the Roman empire. Which they held on for over 200 years.

4. Their autonomy allowed them to run a Jewish theocracy which is the only purpose of a Jewish Kingdom and State.
5. Talmud unambiguously states that #Hanukkah was established because of the oil miracle. Not about war victories or sovereignty.

6. While we do praise God for the victories and we somewhat commemorate it, nonetheless for the war victories alone #Hannukah would not existed.
