Medact warns against British air strikes in Syria

While barbarism and callous violence must always be resisted and challenged, a bombing campaign against ISIS will not help bring peace to the region, nor secure freedom and safety in the UK. More likely, reacting to the atrocities in Paris by supporting and expanding the US-led air war against ISIS will grow support for terrorism.
If the recent history of the Middle East has taught us one thing, it is that western military action acts as oxygen to the fuel of sectarian and religious conflict within the region, and the belief that western nations are legitimate targets for acts of terror.
