    Background: About 30 members of the Israeli Black Panther organisation began a hunger strike yesterday (Sunday) at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. They chose to make their demonstration at a time when the Wall, the Jews' holiest shrine, was crowded with Jewish pilgrims celebrating the Passover.
    The "Panthers", loosely modelled on the Negro Black Panthers in the United States, are concerned at what they consider discrimination in Israel between Jews of European origin and those who came from Arab countries in North Africa and the Middle East.
    They were demanding a definite date at which Prime Minister Mrs Golda Meir and other ministers would meet them to discuss their case.
