Dylan Kistler, Ray’s son, gave a very informative presentation about his recent trip to Middle East. He says that he “heard many viewpoints” while there and that U.S. decisions do have a real and tangible impact on the Middle East. Water is an important resource in the Middle East. Scarcity has damaged the standard of living for inhabitants. Disputes over water is fundamental to the political relationships in the region as is religion. The Dome of the Rock is an Islamic shrine located on the Temple Mount in the Old City of Jerusalem. It was initially completed in 691–92 CE at the order of Umayyad Caliph Abd al-Malik during the Second Fitna on the site of the Second Jewish Temple, destroyed during the Roman Siege of Jerusalem in 70 CE. Dylan says this most likely will be the site of World War 3. Jews may enter only to visit the place, and only at limited times. Muslims are free to pray on Temple Mount, however, Christians and Jews may only visit the site as tourists. They are forbidden from singing, praying, or making any kind of "religious displays. The Dome of the Rock is controlled and managed by The Jerusalem Islamic Waqf. In year 2000, then President Bill Clinton invited Prime Minister Ehud Barak and Yasser Arafat to come to Camp David. The topic was peace in the Middle East. No agreement was reached and Clinton was shocked cause he thought this was something that he could accomplish. Arafat stated that if he were to have voted for this, he would be assassinated. In closing, Dylan advises to read your news carefully. There are very conservative views/very liberal views and both can tell the same story differently. It’s very difficult to get an unbiased story.
