“Today, as we look towards Christmas and the birth of the Prince of Peace, I appeal to politicians to vote against the bombing,” said the Revd Dr R.Alun Evans.
“Such vengeful action would only lead to more violence and the inevitable deaths of countless innocent civilians. Bombing will solve nothing, but risks driving more recruits into the arms of ISIL,” said Dr Evans.
“We’re still paying the price for the foolish attacks on Iraq and Libya, which created the power vacuum filled by ISIL. When will we ever learn?” he asked.
