Left wing political party Left Unity is calling on MPs of all parties to clearly reject airstrikes on Iraq or any other military action in parliament today.
Salman Shaheen of Left Unity said:
“ISIS are monsters but they are monsters of the West’s own making. Forged in the fires of war, more bombs will only hasten their spread.
“It is clear that ISIS in fact wants Western intervention and our government is falling right into their trap. Not only that, but it is allying itself with states like Saudi Arabia which have spent billions spreading the very same poisonous ideology.
“Many of the young British militants going to fight for ISIS like ‘Jihadi John’ would have been growing up during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Western intervention a decade ago killed hundreds of thousands of civilians and created the terrorists we see today. Let’s not create the next generation of terrorists.”
