California and Silicon Valley gains through our new best friend, Netanyahu, who is further legitimized, while news stories this week trumpet that Israel tightens its control over the West Bank, the occupation continues, and the Palestinians suffer, and suffer, and suffer.
Shame on us. Shame on Jerry Brown.

Doesn't the US government handle foreign affairs? If Jerry Brown thinks that he's on a par with the President, or that the State of California is really a Nation-State that has powers not are not specified by the US Constitution--shouldn't he at least take that position?
The State of California should not be spending on thin dime of state tax revenue to support Israel or any other country. If Brown wants to encourage private support for Israel that's one thing--but as Governor--he's way of out line here.

The State of California does business with many countries. Arab countries -- who are huge human rights abusers -- among them.
