Online jihadist propaganda attracts more clicks in the UK than in any other country in Europe, a report has found.

The UK is the fifth-largest audience in the world for extremist content, according to Turkey, the USA, Saudi Arabia and Iraq, Policy Exchange, the said study.

The think tank proposed that would support British public, and new laws read criminalise content, the glorification of terror.

The government has said that internet companies like Facebook and Google do more to remove jihadist material.

The former US military chief General David Petraeus, wrote in a Foreword to the report, said that efforts to combat online extremism “unsatisfactory”.

He said the bombing of the London subway last week, “only underlined, once again, the ubiquitous nature of this threat.”

“There is no doubt as to the urgency of this matter,” he said.

“The status quo is clearly unacceptable.”

The report proposed criminalizing new laws, the “aggravated possession and/or persistent use of” extremist ideology – not bodies, but subject to punishment, anyone who “stumbles across” Jihad-content.

He said the images of child abuse, approached in a similar way, with tougher penalties for the most serious cases.

According to section 58 of the Terrorism Act 2000, it is currently a criminal offence, in the possession of information that could help a would-be terrorist, but not material, a glorification of terrorism.

“For at least a year, the production of content has continued despite the death of key figures, the loss of territory and the constant battles,” she said.

The jihadist group has from the occupied territories taken in the Middle East, after pressure from a number of Iraqi and Syrian troops.

IS, also known as Daesh, is spreading its online propaganda about a “wide range” of platforms, the report found – including file sharing services, encrypted messaging platforms and social media sites, like Facebook, Google and Twitter.

Internet giants say they have made efforts, to the terminal on extremist content, with Google-description of online extremism as a “major challenge for all of us.”

Facebook said it is working “aggressively to remove terrorist content” on its website, and had developed a common industry database of “hashes” – a unique digital footprints – the catalogues of violent extremist videos or images.

Twitter said that terrorist content had no place on its platform.

The interior Minister, Amber Rudd, said: “We know that Daesh, which helps a threat online and this report, select the Dimension of the problem.

“I made it crystal clear to internet-bosses, you need to go further and faster to remove terrorist content from their sites and prevent it from being uploaded in the first place.”

“If the internet companies are not doing what your customers want, and take on more responsibility for removing this content, then the government must take measures, by the additional regulation and legislation,” he said.

Ms. Rudd added: “The internet can be used as a safe place for terrorists and criminals, and the industry must ensure that the services they provide are not exploited by those who would do us harm.”
