Enactment of the Anti-Terrorism Clarification Act of 2018 (P.L. 115-253).  The Act amended federal criminal law by, among other things, allowing federal courts to exercise personal jurisdiction over a foreign non-state defendant that accepts benefits from the United States (e.g., foreign assistance).  In response, the Palestinian Authority renounces all financial assistance from the United States in order to avoid liability for US court decisions demanding millions in payment for terrorist attacks.
