Jailed Revisionists Tell Jabotinsky They’re Martyrs

All Revisionists still being held here under charges of membership in a secret terroristic society dispatched a letter to Vladimir Jabotinsky, world Revisionist leader, today from the Jaffa jail declaring themselves the victims of libel and asserting they would “suffer patiently as you taught us until the light is triumphant.”

The defendants are the remainder of the score arrested when Palestine police made a series of surprise raids in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and other centers a week ago Sunday, seeking members of an alleged Zionist terrorist organization. Twelve Revisionists were remanded last Tuesday for examination, two of them being charged with illegal possession of firearms.
