I’ll chop off UK, U.S. heads, says British female ISIS militant
A woman from London who is a member of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), announced her ambition to become the first UK woman to execute a “UK or U.S terrorist,” British tabloid the Mirror reported on Thursday.
“Any links 4 da execution of da journalist plz. Allahu Akbar. UK must b shaking up haha. I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!(sic),” Khadijah Dare, who uses social media website Twitter under the name of “Muhajariah fil Sham” (or immigrant in Syria), wrote.
Dare, who is believed to be 22 years old, published the tweet a day after a video showing the killing of U.S. journalist James Foley emerged.
Her Twitter account also features links to international media outlets reporting on the death of Foley.
Twitter’s user policy makes it clear that users are not allowed to make direct threats of violence against others “on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, age, or disability.”
The ISIS fighter, who left the UK in 2012 to join the radical group in Syria, recently sparked outrage when she posted a picture of her toddler son holding a weapon.
Dare, who is believed to be the mother of one, is married to a Turkish man she met in Sweden.
She supposedly converted to Islam in her mid-teens and used to go to a mosque in London.
