The Knesset is expected to vote Monday on a number of no-confidence motions from the opposition. The Likud planned to vote no confidence because of the increased number of Kassam rockets fired at Sderot and the western Negev recently. Israel Beitenu planned to vote no confidence because of the government's decision to supply weapons to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' Force 17. Meretz planned to vote no confidence because of current security conditions. The Arab parties were expected to protest the escalating violence in the Gaza Strip and the death of innocent civilians. UTJ and NU-NRP, meanwhile, were expected to vote no confidence in light of the most recent poverty statistics published by the Israel Democracy Institute.
