its totally understandable that people will read through the old testament and look at the crucifixion of Jesus and come to such a conclusion.

the explanation for it all is pretty simple though. God is creator of all things. since he created all things he owns all things. since he owns all things He has the right to do with them as he sees fit. God's creative decree(the purpose, meaning, and function of the things God created) is different from his moral decree(how God desires creatures to behave).

at the end of the day, all those nations were destroyed because of their sin.
