Hundreds Protest Global Warming.
Some people clearly have too much time and money on their hands. Buffalo Dog and Camel Dog are the result of their owner's trip to a hair salon in China. These animals are hanging their heads in shame. Let's show the world how to behave decently with valuable resources.

Arab-Israeli Conflict Resolved Geologically
On the shore east of Ein Gedi-Israel It is difficult to believe that standing here looking out east it was once possible to see Jordan. With it the thought of the now distant and laughable memory of the menace those Jordanian amphibian tanks made. As one walks down to the shore one finds profound differences in the wild life here. Sea gulls can be heard, there is sea kelp growing on the rocks, making homes for crabs and mussels, a jelly fish washed up on the pebbles nearer to the new water line, the smell of salt in the air, and of course; the tides bring in waves that rival those on the west coast.
"Yes the wild life has changed here." says ecologist Yoni Cohen of the University of Ben Gurion." We are not seeing the kind of wildlife that prefers high salinity of times past; we are seeing flora and fauna more typical of a normal Mediterranean coastline. That of a salt water sea." This is just one more byproduct of Israel's new found island status.
Similar ecological changes have been seen on the whole western side of the island. The area once known as the Judean dessert is now awash with grassy green hills, ripe for agriculture. "The change we see here are a direct result of the massive increases we have seen in rain fall in this region. We receive now a good 900 mm of rain now where as once it was maybe 20 or 30. The sea expanse has brought with it its rain and weather; never seen here before, it is inevitable that the plant life here would change." Avi Goldberg, Meteorologist from Hebrew University explains.
"The drop going down the 400m from the heights of the Judean hills to the depths of what was the dead sea itself, was too great for any cloud bank to release its water, this region never could receive rain, but with the normative sea level, the drop is far less, that combined with the Westerly sea breezes we now experience, has made a big difference to the precipitation levels." And so the dessert blooms. "Well," he jokes; "They didn't call it the "Baka [split] Valley" for nothing."
"We had precedents of large land masses breaking off and becoming islands, like Madagascar and like India which was once part of Africa and then moved through the Indian Ocean to collide with Asia forming the Himalayas. But this spilt was different from the other this split was miraculous." explains seismologist Ari Givon of the University of Haifa. "While is it virtually impossible to know where the plates meet to much more the nearest mile, no one could have predicted that the fracture would be so complete and that it would be so politically significant. One would have expected the fault line to pass through the Kinneret, but it by passed it completely. Our department looks forward to researching that particular anomaly. The other aspect of the rift that needs to be looked at is the speed at which this occurred, India took millions of years to make it's journey east and then north, its' like there was a shortening of the way for Israel."
Meyers sums it up. "Mesiach, Buruch Tehiyah, [blessed should he be] had to do more than Moshe Rabbainu and Yohshua his servant, well Moshe split the sea, did he not? Yoshua also split water, he split the Yarden [Jorden River] – he had to do better than Moshe so he stopped the sun for a while too. Well what trick could Meshiach do to beat that? He had to split the land."
