Yes, if you're reading this, you're one of the have's, who have internet access, or even a computer or two or more at your fingertips.
Sometimes it's hard to remember that computers aren't as univerally common as telephones, or even cellular phones.
We're part of a connected world, because of the internet. You, who are reading this, has access to information which others don't have. They won't find articles like mine in the paper or radio or TV.
The unofficial international news media, which I and other bloggers belong to, isn't a "closed club." But for those without internet access, it may as well be.
I consider my blogging about Israel, the news, the real situation in Israel, YESHA and Shiloh my contribution to the Hasbara, Information efforts.
So, before I return to my pre-Shabbat tasks in the kitchen and house, I'd just like to ask you a favor. Please print out articles you think others should see. Pass them around. Talk about what you've read, so they won't be left out.
Thank You and Shabbat Shalom
