Most Germans reject Europe attack on Syria

MOST Germans reject military aggression by Western countries to Syria, revealed a representative poll published today by Der Spiegel magazine.

According to the survey, 59.9 percent of the German population opposed the bombing of targets in Syrian territory by the United States, France, and the United Kingdom, carried out at dawn on April 14 last.

Only 30.8 percent of respondents supported the attacks made last Saturday by the Western alliance against the Arab country, while 9.3 percent of respondents are undecided.

The disapproval of the military aggression was even greater among the members of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU), led by the federal chancellor, Angela Merkel, among whom 46.2 percent said they were against the attacks, but the result added 43 percent of those in favor.

Germany did not join the night air operation against Syria launched by the US, French and British governments, but after the completion of the same Merkel declared that it was a 'necessary and appropriate' action, given the Western accusations to Damascus of having used chemical weapons.

The rejection of military aggression against Syria outlines a growing trend in Europe.

From London it was known that the organization Stop the war today called a series of protests in different cities of the United Kingdom with the slogan 'Stop bombing Syria.'

In a statement released Monday on social networks, the organizers said that the largest demonstration would take place in the Parliament Square, because of the debate planned there on the recent attack of the United States, the United Kingdom and France against Syria.

'The vast majority of people in this country are opposed to the illegal gesture of bombing, which will further impede the development of peaceful international relations', they said.

According to Labor leader Jeremy Corbyn, in a column published Monday in the Guardian newspaper, the aggression of April 14 can be described as 'erroneous and ill-conceived.'

The leader of the left warned on 'the increase in military action will simply cause more deaths and more refugees.'

Corbyn called for 'a change in the rhetoric of eternal confrontation with Russia will help to create a consensus in the UN for multilateral action that will enable the end of the agony in the Levant nation', said the co-founder and former coordinator of Stop the War and the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND).

'The United Kingdom should play a leadership role to achieve a ceasefire in the conflict, not receive instructions from Washington and put British military personnel in danger', he said.
