    Background: More than 20,000 Israelis set out from Jerusalem yesterday (March 30) for a two-day passover holiday march into the occupied West Bank of river Jordan in an token demonstration of what they consider their right to settle on occupied territory.

    The marchers - who had official permission to make their protest - came mainly from the orthodox Emunim (Faith) movement, which has several times tried to set up settlements on the West Bank.

    Among the marchers was the leader of the opposition Likud party Mr. Menachem Begin. Most of the other marchers were people in their 20's and 30's accompanied by children.

    Although they had permission to make the march, police and security authorities were quick to point out that this did not mean that official Israeli policy towards unauthorised settlement had changed in any way. New settlements in occupied areas are allowed only at sites designated by the Israeli government.
