#onthisday, 1907, Avraham Stern, leader of the Irgun and founder of the Lehi - a smaller and more extremist Jewish defense organization (pre-1948) is born.

. While we understand that Stern, Lehi and the Irgun are controversial aspects of Jewish history, learning about them is integral to understanding the full scope of Israeli history and the oft overlooked role the British played in sowing hatred and chaos in the region. Also by commemorating Stern today, we are by no means praising terrorism / unrestrained violence as a means to achieve desired political results.
