God's mercy as His guilt

Jonah is angry to the point of wanting to die. Lord forced him to preach repentance and the damned people believed the message and repented in ash and sackcloth.

What could be worse?

And of course, God who is rahman urahim, goes on and forgives them instead of destroying Nineveh as they deserve.

This is an extremely deep theological teaching that is also extremely hard for us humans to accept.

Surely, God is a tool of our vengeance to those who seriously harmed us?

Surely, God hates those, who do not believe the way I believe?

Surely, God is a figment of my mind and does what I think a real God would do in order to make me satisfied!

Unfortunately, God bares the guilt of mankind.
