My Rabbi had a baby boy this week. His fourth child. I went to have Shabbat dinner at his house last night and got the honor of holding the baby. Three days old and born at 5lb 6oz, this child was tiny. I have never before held a baby so small. I was so nervous to hold it, to even touch it. But he is seriously so adorable. The name won't be revealed until the Bris on Tuesday.

The Ozone

Let's talk about the Ozone Layer. I don't do enough science entries so here we go.

According to a Reuters article, the hole over the Antartic is reaching record size (which is an area larger than North America). Also, the hole reaches its maximum size usually in September. From what I understand, the hole is completely repairable if we just took a little better care of our planet.

Expelling Arafat

I have heard a lot about this in the last week or so. To either expel him or even possibly killing him. I'm fine with them killing him but do we really want to expel him? I mean, if Israel lets him out of the West Bank and into let's say Syria then Israel has less control over his where-abouts and his actions. Who knows what he might plan if he were out there talking to other crazy people.

And leave it to the UN to condemn Israel for wanting to expel Arafat. A quote from the Associated Press article, "The United States vetoed an Arab-backed U.N. resolution Tuesday demanding that Israel halt threats to expel Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (news - web sites) from the West Bank, because it did not contain a condemnation of terrorist groups such as Hamas." Maybe the Arabs are backing this because they don't want that nasty pigeon causing trouble in their country!

11/15 security council members were in favor of the resolution while Germany, Bulgaria and Britain obstained. What kind of a shitty security council is this?!? This really annoys me. This guy is a THREAT to Israel and peace in the middle east and the "security council" is saying to keep him around? And they won't recognize Hamas as a terrorist organization!?!? What a strange security council this is. But then again...it's the UN
