Jewish Press Headline

The headline in the Jewish Press's lead front page article is 'Sharon Gov’t Barely Survives Four No-Confidence Votes.' The article correctly points out that the Sharon government narrowly defeated four no-confidence votes, including two by a margin of 47-45.

The headline might be misleading, because to have any actual effect, a no confidence vote must be supported by 61 Knesset members, a majority of the entire Knesset, rather than just a majority of those voting in the no confidence motion. Therefore, Sharon was not in any danger of falling, as 16 more votes were required.
