Time Differences on the Web

Question
I live in Australia where the time difference between Australia and Israel is roughly seven or eight hours ahead. Meaning, that when it is Motzaei Shabbat in Australia it is still Shabbat morning or afternoon in Israel. My question is relating to websites. Sites such as Arutz sheva make it known that they stop updating the site whilst it is Shabbat. However other Israeli sites such as Haaretz continue to update the website throughout Shabbat. So am I allowed to visit these websites whilst it is still Shabbat in Israel, or by me visiting them am I making jews Mechallel Shabbat?
Answer
You should not use the Internet site while it is Shabbat in Israel.
