In 1919, aided by labor leader Berl Katznelson, David Ben-Gurion establishes a new socialist party – Ahdut Ha-Avodah.
In 1921, he is elected to the leadership of the Histadrut, a non-political trade union and by 1930, leads a new, larger labor party – Mapai.
But Ben-Gurion sets his sights higher: He wants to conquer the Zionist movement.
His ambition brings him into conflict with another Zionist leader, Vladimir “Ze’ev” Jabotinsky. The victor will determine the direction of world Zionism.
