Menachem Begin
Certifying that Abraham Abraham is a member of the honor guard at the reinterment of Jabotinsky on Mount Herzl.
Partly Printed DS: "M. Begin" in Hebrew, 1p, 8¾x12.
Tel-Aviv, 28 Tamuz 5724/1964 July 8 and Jerusalem, 29 Tamuz 5724/1964 July 9. In Hebrew; English translation included. Headed: "Zeev Jabotinsky Returns to his Country". In full: "In accordance with the Decision of the Israeli Government/to fulfill his Will and Testament/This Verifies/That Abraham Abraham/has been honored/and is a member of the honor guard/next to the coffins of/Zev Jabotinsky/and his wife Jeanne, the memory be eternal/upon return to their country." Also signed in Hebrew: "Aaron Proops" and "Joseph Kellerman". Zeev Jabotinsky (1880-1940) was the founder and spiritual leader of Revisionist Zionism, which called for the immediate establishment of a Jewish state. In Jabotinsky's will, he requested that his remains be interred in Israel only at the express order of the Hebrew Government of the Jewish State that would arise. He died in 1940, eight years before the creation of Israel. In 1964, his remains and those of his wife, Jeanne, were reinterred on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. Jabotinsky's revisionism was the root of the Irgun Leumi militia in Palestine from 1943 until the founding of the State of Israel in 1948. Members of the Irgun founded various right-wing political parties in Israel that coalesced in 1973 to form the right-of-center Likud Party. In 1977, Likud Party leader Menachem Begin became Prime Minister, serving until 1983. In 1978, Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Sadat shared the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the Egyptian-Israel Peace Treaty. Lightly creased in upper blank corners. Fine condition.
