There have been several appeals of late by international NGO‘s and rescue missions calling the tragic events in Syria a “staggering humanitarian disaster”, with “horrific sexual violence” and “enormous needs”. These expressions are immediately followed by appeals for help for one Billion here or another Billion there. Tragedies brings the good, the greedy, and the ugly in all of us.

Mind you, American-Syrians are grateful to those organizations willing to help, but who is really holding them accountable in how they spend the money they collect? What guarantees do we have that those Billions will all be used for their intended purposes? The Red Cross is still sitting on $500m of the $800m it raised from the public after the Haiti earthquake struck. They won’t spend it because they think Haiti is doing just fine.

These rescue organizations can put their political savvy to good use by seeking to pressure Obama to stop the carnage by allowing the Free Syrian Army access to weapons it can rapidly overcome the Assad regime with.

Just ask Jonathan Katz on what happened in Haiti to know why I am questioning these organizations. Read the article for yourself to see what harm big humanitarian organizations left behind in Haiti. Even better, read the book Jonathan Katz wrote about Haiti calling it “The Big Truck That Went: How the world came to save Haiti and left behind a disaster.”  He should know because he lived in Haiti and was the only westerner who decided to stay behind after everyone left.

These rescue organizations can put their political savvy to good use by seeking to pressure Obama to stop the carnage by allowing the Free Syrian Army access to weapons it can rapidly overcome the Assad regime with.

Any wonder why the tragedy will continue!! It’s a fundraising bonanza that comes once every 5 to 10 years and the big Kahunas are not about to miss it.

Especially now that Kuwait is willing to open its big pockets to help the Syrian people.
