ISIS has released a second video of British hostage John Cantlie, where he describes the militant group as "the most powerful jihadi movement seen in recent history."

ISIS terrorists have released yet another chilling new video depicting British hostage John Cantlie today.

The clip is the second one released showing the journalist in less than a week. Cantlie appears dressed in orange in the video and says he has been abandoned by the UK.

The clip lasts for almost six minutes and is introduced with the title Lend Me Your Ears and Messages From The British Detainee John Cantlie.

During the video, he says western governments "were caught napping by the sheer speed of the Islamic State's growth" and have underestimated "the strength and fighting zeal of the opponent."

SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors Jihadist groups, described the latest footage as the "first episode" in a series involving Cantlie speaking about the group.

The clip follows a similar pattern to the first video, featuring the photojournalist, showing him sitting at a desk dressed in the now-familiar orange outfit worn by other ISIS hostages.

Cantlie looks calm and appears to be reciting a prepared script. It does not show any of his captors and features no threats to Cantlie's life.

Cantlie goes on to describe the US and its allies' intervention as "Gulf War III," stating that,  “not since Vietnam have we witnessed such a potential mess in the making.”

Cantlie continues: "Senior US politicians seemed content to call the Islamic State nasty names; ‘awful’, ‘vile’, ‘a cancer’, ‘an insult to our values’. But such petty insults don’t really do much harm to the most powerful jihadi movement seen in recent history."
