Netanyahu Receives Ze'ev Jabotinsky's Sword


Israel Police Commissioner Insp.-Gen. Yohanan Danino gave the sword of Ze'ev Jabotinsky to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, in the course of a study day for the senior Israeli Police command at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, to mark the 100th anniversary of the birth of former Prime Minister Menachem Begin.

The Israel Police Education Officer said that in 1920, Ze'ev Jabotinsky had been arrested by British police officers in the wake of his involvement in a Jewish defense organization in Jerusalem, following the riots which occurred that year.
