A journalist at the State Department briefing asked the following question to Spokesperson John Kirby.
Yeah. A week or so ago the Administration weighed in in the lawsuit against the Palestinian – against the PLO and the PA about the damages for the terrorism lawsuit. Today the gist of the Administration’s intervention or filing was that they shouldn’t be required to pay too much or an onerous amount because that would have negative implications for U.S. national interests and promoting a peace agreement, a two-state solution, and also the potential existence of the Palestinian Authority.
Today the judge has issued a ruling requiring them to pay 10 million upfront and then another million a month to secure the damages while this case is being appealed. Is that – in the Administration’s view, is that too much to be asking? Does this place an undue – does the Administration believe it places an undue burden on the Palestinians?
The response of Mr. Kirby regarding this question and other follow up questions was, "I’m not going to be able to comment further on this particular case."
The Algemeiner reported Nearly 800 Rabbis Sign Petition Opposing Iran Nuclear Deal
A week ago, the Huffington Post reported, "Rebuffing a campaign among Jewish organizations to scuttle the Iran nuclear deal, 340 rabbis sent a letter to Congress Monday (Aug. 17) supporting the agreement and rejecting the notion that most American Jews oppose it."

Below are two reports of the same fire in a house in Duma.
Palestinian natives of Duma woke up on the screams of a family after their home was set on fire by suspected Israeli arsonists at the crack of Monday’s dawn.
A PIC journalist quoted local sources as reporting that unidentified arsonists threw flammable materials on the home of Mnawar Rashid Dawabsheh.
The home of a Palestinian family in the West Bank village of Duma burnt down early Monday in what appears to be the result of an electrical short circuit or criminal related activity.
...Monday's fire was initially blamed, briefly, by some Palestinians on an attack by Jewish settlers. But according to Israeli and Palestinian media reports, the head of the village council informed the Palestinian Authority that it was the result of faulty wiring.
