Zev Jabotinsky's Historic Sword Presented in Ceremony


A historic sword belonging to the Zionist leader Zev Jabotinsky was presented in a special ceremony on Monday which included Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Israel Police Commissioner Yohanan Danino and others. 

The sword was confiscated from Jabotinsky by the British authorities in Jerusalem in 1920. Jabotinsky had been organizing self-defense units to defend the Jewish community against Arab terrorists when he was arrested by the British and imprisoned.
