I was walking on a dirt road outside a walled city somewhere in the Middle East. Many people were walking both ways along the road. A man came up to me wearing traditional Arab clothing and a Keffiyeh. He took my hand and said in a warm voice: “Salem Aleichem,” which translates peace be to them. I then turned a started walking away from the City. I could see the body of a dead woman, prepared for burial and placed along the side of the road awaiting someone to take her away. I then saw a man wearing a white robe. He was being blinded by a bright light and had been chosen by God to fulfill a task that would lead him and others to the blessings of Abraham. His experience was like that of Paul when he became blinded by God.
