Jabotinsky is born Vladimir Yevgenyevich Zhabotinskyin in Odessa in 1880. He openly critizes the Zionist leadership for being too passive while British officials in Palestine take on pro-Arab viewpoints. He does not accept Chaim Weizmann’s leadership of the Zionist movement. Thus at the 14th Zionist Congress in Berlin, he forms Ha-Zohar. He, like Herzl, four decades earlier, was a lone wolf, trail blazer in forming Revisionist Zionism. During his career, he founds three other pivotal organizations: The New Zionist Organization, the youth movement, Betar, and the Irgun’s Zvai Le’umi underground organization. He becomes an ideological mentor to Menachem Begin, Israel’s Sixth Prime Minister.
