One in five British Muslims has sympathy for those who have travelled to Syria to join ISIS, a poll reveals today.
More than 5 per cent have 'a lot' of sympathy with young Muslims who leave the UK to join the fighting, with another 14.5 per cent having 'some' sympathy.
Among women, a quarter had at least some sympathy, the Survation poll conducted for The Sun revealed.
It comes as a report showed that attacks on hijab-wearing women have rocketed since the Paris terror tragedy.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for the series of attacks in the French capital which killed 130 people on November 13.
The militants also said they planted a bomb inside the Russian Metrojet flight between Sharm El-Sheikh and St Petersburg, which went down over Sinai in Egypt last month, killing all 224 people on board.
Many Brits have travelled to Syria to join Islamic State and have often been the face of the death cult, appearing in recruitment, promotional and murder videos.
Abdul Rakib Amin, from Aberdeen and Reyaad Khan, of Cardiff, appeared in a jihadi recruitment video last year.
They were both killed in Raqqa by British drone strikes in August.
London-raised Mohammed Emwazi, more commonly known as Jihadi John, appeared in a number of videos where he beheaded international hostages.
He was killed by a US drone in the ISIS capital of Raqqa earlier this month.
London's mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan believes the survey is a wake-up call.
The Labour politician told the national newspaper: 'It is clear that Britain needs to take its head out of the sand and act to tackle extremism and radicalisation at home.
'Tackling extremism is a challenge for everyone but I believe British Muslims have a special role to play.'
Most of the victims were Muslim girls and women between the ages of 14 and 45, who wore traditional dress
Nearly 40 per cent believe the biggest root cause of ISIS terrorist attacks is Western foreign policy including the invasion of Iraq, 56 per cent don't want David Cameron to send British troops to bomb Syria and 61 per cent believe British Muslims are doing enough to integrate into society.
The revelations come as it emerged that hate crime against Muslims in the UK has rocketed by 300 per cent in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, with women being the main targets.
There are 2.7million British Muslims and some are now suffering from the events in France.
A report to the Government's working group on Islamophobia has shown that there have been 115 hate crimes against Muslims in the UK in the week after November 13 - a 300 per cent increase.
The figures were compiled by Tell Mama helpline and have been released by The Independent.
Most of the victims were Muslim girls and women between the ages of 14 and 45, who wore traditional dress.
The attackers were mainly white men, aged 15 to 35.
The report states: 'This is concerning since the cases show that women who wear the hijab are the ones being targeted for general abuse and threats.
'Many of the victims have suggested that no one came to their assistance or even consoled them, meaning that they felt victimised, embarrassed, alone and angry about what had taken place against them.
'Sixteen of the victims even mentioned that they would be fearful of going out in the future and that the experiences had affected their confidence.'
