The boy was born in 2010 and has been nicknamed by British press as ‘Jihadi Junior’.
Reports revealed she (Grace Khadijah) married a Swedish ISIS fighter, Abu Bakr and began worshipping at the Lewisham Islamic Centre, which has links to both the Woolwich killers of Lee Rigby and radical cleric Abu Hamza.
Together, the couple have had two children, the oldest being the five-year-old ISIS-child soldier.
Khadijah was radicalized while at university in London and joined the Islamic State in 2012. She had reportedly praised the beheading of an American journalist, James Foley, and said she wanted to be the first woman to behead a hostage.
she urged other Muslims to “stop being so selfish; focusing on your families or studies”, and implored them to join her in Syria and join the holy war.
According to the Mail Online, Grace’s father, Henry Dare, a cab driver (Nigerian-born United Kingdom immigrant), Tuesday, acknowledged the boy saying: “He’s my grandson. I can’t disown him. I know him very well. “The Islamic State is just using a small boy. He doesn’t know anything. He’s a small boy. They are just using him as a shield.
The boy appeared at the end of the 11-minute “sick ISIS video dressed in military fatigues and a black bandanna bearing the white mark of ISIS and chillingly declaring that “We will kill kuffar (non-believers).”
