Israel and the Handicapped

Very nice, short documentary about Call Yachol, an Israeli firm that exclusively hires workers with disabilities. It makes me very proud of Israel, because how well a nation treats its handicapped citizens is an indicator of its level of civilization. In my opinion, one of the few things that the state should increase spending in is helping citizens with handicaps lead healthy and productive lives. One of the reasons I am so appalled by the healthy Americans that mooch off the system is NOT because I do not support the existence of a safety net, but because I believe we should focus our painfully limited resources on the handicapped and elderly.
