Assalamualaikum wbt and peace be upon you,
A few days ago, I read on the front page of our newspaper that 20 little children somewhere in the U.S. were brutally shot by a young American who went berserk. There was also a photo of President Barack Obama in tears, most probably saddened by what happened.Mr. Obama, you should ask yourself WHY this incident happened.
I would just like to ask him, why didn't he shed any tears when Palestinian children were killed during the recent Gaza bombing by the Israelis, an attack which had the green light of the U.S. President. Is it because the lives of these Palestinian children had no value to him? That there's nothing to cry about when these children were killed, injured or became orphans?
I read that more than 400 Palestinian children have been killed by Israelis since 2008. In Islam, we believe that all the children, whether they are Palestinians or Americans will go to heaven because they have no sin.
The moral of the story here is "what goes around comes around".
