Jabotinsky, Vladimir

(1880-1940)
   Russian Zionist leader, soldier and writer. Born in Odessa, he first worked as a foreign correspondent in Berne and Rome. After returning to Odessa, he formed a Jewish self-defence group there. During World War I he advocated the recruiting of Jewish regiments to fight on the Palestinian front, and after the war he supported the maintainance of a Jewish legion in Palestine to protect Jews from Arab hostility. In 1920 he organized a Jewish self-defence unit in Jerusalem, for which he was arrested, tried and punished by a British military tribunal. In 1925 he formed the World Union of Zionist Revisionists, and from 1936 he urged the evacuation of Eastern European Jewry to Palestine. He was the spiritual father and head of the Jewish underground movement Irgun Tzevai Leumi, founded in 1937. Besides his military activities, he was also a translator, writer and poet.
