I'm gonna get a serious bellyache trying to swallow that one.  Run that math by me again?
As a lawyer you should have no trouble understanding this.

The same way 150 years worth of billable hours can fit into 100 years, 150 years' worth of climate data can fit into 100 years.

Didn't search, but I doubt an English version exists, given that even the Hebrew transcription is far from perfect, but it's a very interesting article for those that can understand it.

https://www.globes.co.il/news/article.aspx?did=1001219138

Now read this article (choose your own sequence of reading. Sorry for the Hebrew again) https://www.20il.co.il/אשף-החליט-להשעות-את-ההכרה-בישראל/ and you'll see the true definition of a paper tiger.

As if it's India or Israel that have control over Saudi air space.

It clearly says it's up to SA to allow. The reason they don't yet is due to Israel mostly though.

Right, but why would any of this be subject of talks between India and Israel, when neither of them have any control over it?

Israel also needs to approve the route and they haven't yet.

Correct. But that's a moot point until KSA allows flights to TLV through their airspace.

Also, you really think the Israelis would be talking to the Indians about getting Air India to compete with ELAL offering a superior routing? The entire story makes zero sense. Typical of Israeli journalism (where at the very least 90% of what is published is taken straight out of the imagination of the writers).

Why am I not surprised?

There could be various reasons why you are not surprised. הצד השווה שבהן is that whatever the reason is, it could only say something about you, and not about anyone else, or people that you might group using a meaningless label.

In any event, it is really heartbreaking to think about his (ex, I presume) wife and kids.

Here's a story about how he met two of them once:

Mine was accurate. As Jews who never intermarried and are thoroughly Ashkenazi, it's very simple.

Came in as 94% European Jewish.

Specific places in this region where your family might have lived.

 Western Ukraine, Moldova & Eastern Romania
 Poland, Slovakia, Hungary & Moravia

Very spot-on.
