The World Humanitarian Summit held in Istanbul, May 23-24, 2016 failed to achieve its fund-raising goals. No one from the richest countries – except Angela Merkel – or of the UN Security Council attended – writes eminent observer Baher Kamal for InterPress Service, IPS.

The richest and most powerful, the most militarized and the most greedy on earth of course stayed away.

In addition, they are the main shapers of humanitarian crises – through their warfare, interventionism and cultural insensitivity.

A civilisation that does war and killing better than saving human lives deserves to go down.

And ours will. As Gandhi said – “there is enough for everyone’s needs but not enough for everyone’s greed.”

Thanks to Chancellor Merkel for again showing leadership and civil courage where others act as cowards and failed.
