Vladimir Zev Jabotinsky (also transliterated Ze'ev from Hebrew) (1880-1940) was the leader of the Revisionist branch of Zionism. He believed that the historic Jewish state was on both sides of the Jordan River (i.e., the modern one-state solution. The Revisionists were secular, and regarded Zionism as more ethnic and historical than religious. He argued for a Jewish homeland, with no apologies for Jewish identity.
In the First World War, he argued for a distinct Jewish Legion fighting unit, which fought for the British against the Ottoman Empire. His commission in the British Army, however, was revoked in 1920 for leading armed defense of Jews in Palestine. 
In 1936, he proposed an evacuation of the Polish Jews.
