He is not Alexander the Macedonian tyrant, who was drunk and possibly a homosexual.

I would be careful of believing Western historians on issues like this. They try to make every great historical figure follow their concept of (im)morality. Look what they've done to many of the ancient philosophers like Plato, Socrates et al, who some of our scholars have gone so far as to say that they might have been prophets. I'm not saying that you're wrong about Alexander (as I've not studied him) but I'm speaking in general.

Alexander was actually very well respected by the Jews. Talmudic and other Jewish histories, as well as Christian ones, portray his military campaign as the will of God.
