A MELBOURNE man fighting with ISIS has posted photos of himself in the Middle East, praising the terrorists who attacked French magazine Charlie Hebdo and calling for young Aussies to "spill blood".

Suhan Abdul Rahman, 23 has published photos of himself alongside another man who Nine News identifies as fellow Australian ISIS militant Mohamed Elomar.

Rahman's Facebook includes images of him holding a silver-plated AK-47 with the caption, "My old government never gave me presents like that!" 

He announced his support of Said and Cherif Kouachi, the brothers who attacked the Parisian magazine, killing 12.

"May Allah accept the french brothers who terrorised France. Allahu Akbar. Day by Day we will bring the war home to you," he wrote.

In another post, he write: "They say (we are) all charlie. I say that means uze all deserve death and worse."

In earlier posts dating back to 2011, Rahman talks about "the moment u realize ur bored enough to postt wat ur thinking on the interrnett for everyone to seee" and how he will "never gna stop havinn the FUN:) rock it day in day out:D "

He also posts about how "my memoriiess fadee wen im intoxiiccattedd".

ISIS forbids the drinking of alcohol by its members.

Earlier this month, he began uploading photos of dead bodies and weaponry.

Less than a day ago he wrote, "I say stuf the peaceful protests. Spill blood young aussies. Dont be humiliated especially if u cant b here in sham".

His social media account is now under investigation by Victorian Police, his overseas movements under scrutiny from the Australian Federal Police.

The Daily Telegraph reports the father of the young militant says Rahman has brought shame on his family.

Lutfur Rahman said he did not know his son had become an extremist when he left Australia.
