A British jihadi woman linked to the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) has vowed to become the first woman to behead a person from the UK or US.
Khadijah Dare tweeted she wants to become the first British woman to kill a UK or US citizen. This comes a day after a video emerged of the beheading of US journalist James Foley.
Dare posted: ‘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)’
Dare, believed to be 22, writes under the Twitter name Muhajirah fi Sham, which means “immigrant in Syria.” Muhajirah fi Sham has been identified by the Daily Mirror as Khadijah Dare from Lewisham, South East London.

It is believed that the 22-year-old mother of one left the UK around 2012 to live in Syria. The paper stated that Dare converted to Islam in her teens and is believed to be married to a Turkish man she met in Sweden, who is also an IS fighter.
Her Twitter picture shows her young son holding an AK 47. In several tweets the Briton called on fellow ‘sisters and brothers’ to come join the war in Syria and Iraq.

Dare has also appeared in a Channel 4 video on ISIS, shooting AK47s and revolvers. In the video Dare said that she missed junk food and Chinese takeaways, and she told Channel 4 that she studied media, film, psychology and sociology at college.
Meanwhile, another young British jihadist took to Twitter to taunt the US government following the gruesome beheading.
IS fighter Nasser Muthana, 20, tweeted: “So America wants to protect Yezidis from genocide but can’t even protect their own citizens from getting decapitated #AmessagefromIStoUS.”
Nasser, his younger brother Aseel, 17, and their friend Reyaad Khan, 20, are among around 500 British jihadists believed to be fighting with IS forces in Syria and Iraq.
