Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, Gov. Brown Sign Pro-Business Pact in Silicon Valley

The Israeli prime minister is also expected to share his thoughts on water conservation.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made a swing through the Silicon Valley to meet with high-tech leaders and sign a pro-business agreement with Gov. Jerry Brown.

During a meeting at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, the two emphasized their joint interests in cybersecurity, energy sources and water conservation, and suggested Israel -- an arid country with a growing population -- might be able to help California cope with its ongoing drought.

"California doesn't need to have a water problem,'' Netanyahu said. "Israel has no water problems because we are the number one recyclers of waste water, we stop water leaks, we use drip irrigation and desalination.''

Republicans should have been doing this for the last 15 years.
You would be surprised the dumb looks I got from the GOP when I suggested it.
The last Republican who visited a high tech company in Silicon Valley was the last Republican Governor.

He visited Intel with a ton of security. Only Sr executives even saw him.

The Imperial Valley of California employs farming with the same irrigation methods used in Isreal.

Gov. Brown has shown some sensibility. He's anti-pot as well. California could do much worse than Gov. Brown at the helm, as it's the federal encroachment that has harmed California. Brown is not a 'de Blasio', that's for sure.

Barry went to the place where the federal government turned off the water for a 3" fish like he had nothing to do with it. WTF was that all about? Does he think the farmers there don't remember?
