Vladimir Jabotinsky establishes the revisionist Betar party in Riga, Latvia. It is the ideological precursor to the Herut and Likud political parties in modern Israel. Betar focuses on establishing a Jewish military defense force. Jabotinsky publishes his “Iron Wall” where he recognizes that the Arabs in Palestine will vigorously oppose Jewish presence and growth.
