"like evil beasts they roared, bellowed like lions, hissed like ferocious serpents, and slew all whom they found. Lile mad dogs they tore with their teeth the flesh of the faithful, and respected non at all, neither male nor female, neither young nor old, neither child nor baby, neither priest no monk, neither virgin nor widow・. "

That description should be ascribed to me. I slay all without an iota of pity or remorse with my teeth...

That account is really a joke.

Antiochus sounds like a monster. What had the Jews done to provoke the Greeks into such cruelty?

Antiochus seems to have been motivated by revenge. He blamed the Jews when his expedition to Egypt failed and sent troops to desecrate and plunder the temple
