More information about Final Jeopardy:

One of the overarching themes of the 2018 Arab League summit was denouncing the Iranian terrorist attacks in Arab countries and “its blatant interference in the affairs of Arab countries”, as was stated by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman.

Why is Iran not an Arab state? Language and history. Iran is the modern-day equivalent of the historical Persians; only a small minority of Iranians are Arabic.

  1. ONE will get it.

    Dave was allowed a correct response early in the show for “Daylight Savings Time” whereas the correct phrase should be without the final s in Savings. Would not have made a difference because he won handily, but if the show wants to be technically correct, they should have pointed that out.
