London: While the world expressed shock and grief at the brutal murder of American journalist James Foley, a female jihadist set Twitter aflutter by vowing to become the first female to behead a western prisoner in Syria.

Reports said that the jihadist in question - Khadijah Dare, is the 22-year-old mother of one who originally hails from Lewisham in south east London.

She moved to Syria in 2012 with her Swedish husband and ISIS fighter, Abu Bakr and is now looking to replicate the assassination of James Foley.

Dare, whose Twitter name reads `Muhajirah fi Sham` which means ‘immigrant in Syria’, posted a slang filled message that said, “Any links 4 da execution of da journalist plz. Allahu Akbar. UK must b shaking up ha ha. I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!(sic)”.
She is believed to have converted to Islam in her mid-teens and her Twitter profile shows her toddler son posing with an AK47 rifle.

One of her shocking tweets reads: “All da people back in Dar ul kufr [land of disbelievers] what are you waiting for ... hurry up and join da caravan to where the laws of Allah is implemented.

Another of her tweets says, “No one from Lewisham has come here apart from an 18-year-old sister shame on all those people who afford fancy meals and clothes and do not make hirja. Shame on you.”

Dare also expressed her delight in the execution of a Syrian man accused of rape by tweeting, “On da way 2 da market in Manbij, me and sum sisters was wonderin wat da commotion was all about ... On da way back frm da market, we see da body of a young man, with blood coin his nose ... tied onto a tree.”

The jihadist woman is reported to have been attached with the Lewisham Islamic Centre in the UK.

She met and married Abu Bakr, a Turkish militant in Sweden.
