Police fanned out Tuesday around Kfar Maimon, a southern Israeli village where some 7,000 Israelis opposed to the upcoming Gaza withdrawal had massed on the second day of their march. Organizers say the march will reach Gush Katif, the main Gaza settlement bloc, by the end of the week, but Israeli authorities banned the move.
