I saw this news picture of Gaza today. A young Palestinian boy holding a stone in his tiny hand aimed at a monstrous Israeli tank coming at him. I closed my eyes in pain. Where is God? In my school days, our teachers used to tell us that God is on the side of those who are weak but determined to struggle for a just cause. I opened my eyes and looked at the picture to see any sign of the God alongside the young boy. Then I remembered another teacher telling us that God is hope. Is the young boy with the stone hoping to destroy the tank with a stone? -DR GHAYUR AYUB, London, UK, via e-mail, January 2.
