Anniversary of Jabotinsky’s Death Observed in Israel

A special ceremony was held last night at the tomb of Vladimir Jabotinsky on the 26th anniversary of the Revisionist Zionist leader’s death.

An honor guard of Betar, youth branch of the Revisionist movement, lined the path to the tomb. Jabotinsky’s flag was unfurled and leaders of the Herut party laid wreaths. Later a plaque was unveiled at the house where the Revisionist leader lived and where he was arrested in 1920 after he organized Jerusalem’s defenses against Arab rioters.
