They say the air of Eretz Yisrael makes one wise. That is especially true of the Shomron (Samaria). The folks in the regional council of Samaria are really smart cookies.
They've got lots of clever ideas to build their towns. They even learn some of their lessons from the Arabs and the leftwing.
You know how Arabs are always walking around with still and video cameras so that they can DOCUMENT the supposed-evils of Israeli soldiers and "settlers"? Their well-planned footage is available all over the internet.
Well, the folks of the Samaria Regional Council figured that if you can use videos to spread lies, you can also use video to spread the truth. They gave courses last year to Samarian residents to teach them how to use their video cameras effectively. THAT'S INNOVATIVE THINKING!!
Recently, Peace Bloc came out with a comprehensive list of Jewish "settlements" in Judea and Samaria and the products they manufacture. Peace Now wants Israelis and citizens of the world to boycott these Israeli goods.
The Shomron Council took the same list and distributed it to lovers of Israel the world over, encouraging supporters of Eretz Yisrael and the heroic pioneers that live on its hilltops, in its valleys, across its deserts to BUY BUY BUY those products and strengthen the pioneering settlement throughout the country. SHOMRON, YOU GUYS ARE GREAT!!
Here are some of the products, thanks to Peace Bloc for the info, that you'll want to buy: Ahavah (natural cosmetics), Mitzpeh Shalem; Amgazit (gas equipment), Kfar Etzion [it's really in Bet Shemesh now, but okay...]; Beigel & Beigel (pretzels), Barkan; Beitili (furniture), Barkan; Har-Shefi (boxes), Beit El; Keter (plastic furniture), Barkan; Mei Tzurim (water purification), Rosh Tzurim in Gush Etzion; Mitkanei Psagot (playground equipment), Psagot; Orli-Print, N’vei Daniel; Palphot (photography products), Karnei Shomron; Tefillin Beit El, Beit El.
In our desire to build up our nation and all our communities and hilltops, we must look everywhere for inspiration and clever ideas. and when we find them, we should act. Here's to the folks in the Shomron who have learned from everyone - including the Arabs and the leftwing - to do something positive for their region.
