God is great

 

“God is great,” shouted the Moslem extremists, as they angrily waved their guns in the air.

 

Whilst a small and gentle child in the crowd, who was not yet old enough to understand the struggles of his people thought and wondered to himself,

 

How could this be so!?

How could it be so that ‘God is ‘hate.’
