Could ISIS affect Scotland's vote?

(CNN) – While the threat of ISIS is surely weighing heavily on the mind of the British Prime Minister, it is not his only worry.

Prime Minister David Cameron is also trying to convince the people of Scotland to reject a referendum on Thursday, which would declare their independence from the United Kingdom.

If the Scottish believe that Cameron will commit British troops a war against ISIS, it will absolutely affect this independence referendum.

The Scottish National Party's view is that they would like to make a peaceful contribution to situations in Syria and Iraq, a member of parliament from the Scottish National Party, which wants independence, tells CNN.

CNN's Nic Robertson reports.

For Robertson's preview of his special, "Double Agent Inside al Qaeda for the CIA," airing Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET, check out the video below.
