I'd guess ISIL's objectives were
1) increased propaganda and get more recruits (check, but they hoped for more)
2) prove there is a cost to the West's pinprick attacks (check)

The French bombing response are still pinpricks - so far.






Also:

3) Use fear to decrease the amount of Europeans willing to openly criticize Islam. (Well, this was working with the murder of Theo van Gogh and the Danish Mohammad cartoons, but now it appears to be backfiring)
