"The Labor of Thy Lands"

There are all sorts of things I could post in honor of the 60th anniversary of the creation of the state of Israel, but this is probably the most unusual and one of the more illuminating things you'll see, a video from the 1950s commissioned by the woman's group Hadassah to promote the need of a skilled workforce in Israel. The interesting thing is the contrast within this video with the gloominess of today's talk of Israel's future (such as in the Atlantic Monthly's "Is Israel Finished?" cover story).
