Mr Pantucci said IS was ‘very good at harnessing social media to get their message out there and attract more attention.

Mr Pantucci said IS was ‘very good at harnessing social media to get their message out there and attract more attention.

Mr Pantucci said IS was ‘very good at harnessing social media to get their message out there and attract more attention.

‘They have demonstrated their ability to manipulate social media to its maximum effect,’ he added. 

‘Unfortunately the British participation in the conflicts now raging in both Syria and Iraq has been one of full participation, one that has seen them at the front lines, taking part in the conflict in every way. 

‘So we have seen British fighters out there operating as suicide bombers, we have seen them operating as executioners.’

President Obama said the US would not back down: ‘Today, the entire world is appalled by the brutal murder of Jim Foley.

‘No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day. ISIL speaks for no religion.

‘Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.’

Since the video U.S. forces have carried out 14 new strikes on IS targets near the Mosul dam despite the threat that another American hostage would be murdered. 

Special forces attempted to rescue Americans - including James Foley - held hostage by ISIS in Syria earlier this summer but failed, it was revealed today.

The mission to save the journalist and others was carried out in early July but was unsuccessful because the hostages - being held by a group of British jihadists known as ‘The Beatles’ - could not be found.

‘This operation involved air and ground components and was focused on a particular captor network within ISIL [also known as ISIS and IS],’ the White House said in a statement last night.

‘Unfortunately, the mission was not successful because the hostages were not present at the targeted location.’

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said: ‘We have been saying for a very long time there are significant numbers of British nationals in Syria, increasingly in Iraq.

‘One of the reasons why what is going on in Syria and Iraq is a direct threat to our own national security is the presence of a significant number of our nationals who may, at some stage, seek to come back to the UK with the skills the trade craft that they have learned working with these terrorist organisations and potentially posing a threat to our domestic security here in the UK.

‘If the Islamic State, so called, becomes established in an area of Syria and Iraq, it will undoubtedly use it as a base for launching attacks on the West, it will undoubtedly send its fighters out to attack western targets.

‘Equally, if it gets pushed back, some of these people will return to their countries of origin not just the UK. We will see these people going back and carrying on their fight in our own homelands.’

Khalid Mahmood, Labour MP for Birmingham Perry Bar, told Channel 4 News the lack of border controls meant the Government’s estimates of jihadi numbers were too low.

‘I think it’s about 2,000 people,’ he added. ‘I said a couple of months ago about 1,500. I know there are people still going across. There are no effective controls by the UK Border Agency both on exit and return.

‘No one knows what is going on. There is a real threat to the UK. The Border Agency is not fit for purpose.’ Mr Mahmood said two jihadis had travelled to Syria from his own constituency last year but returned and were detained by the authorities.

Among those who appeared to have been inspired by the appalling murder committed by IS was London-born recruit Khadijah Dare, who vowed to become the first woman to kill a UK or US prisoner. 

Miss Dare, from Lewisham, was recently pictured with her toddler son holding an AK47 in northern Syria and is married to a Swedish Islamist fighter called Abu Bakr.

She tweeted yesterday: ‘I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!’.
