Love jihad: a term referring to when Muslims seduce non-Muslims, particularly Christians, Hindus, and Sikhs, to convert them to Islam. Such a fate befell 24-year-old British mother of two Joy Small, who fell for Muslim Aram Abdul-Razzaq Aziz, an Iraqi immigrant. After her conversion, Small became an avid campaigner for special treatment for Muslims. This was likely because she had grown sick of how most of her friends poked fun at her for the weirdo she had become. I mean, what kind of person wears a ninja costume on days other than Halloween?!
Like many other Muslims, Aziz followed Qur. 4:34, which sanctions wife-beating. Aziz had even poured gasoline on Small once during an argument. She had contacted police about the abuse and installed a panic button in her home, but felt she couldn’t leave the monster she had married. Aziz had made numerous threats against Small, and her remaining friends considered him to be an “abusive monster.” She finally gathered the courage to leave him, which only resulted in more death threats against both her and her children because she had left him. Divorce is highly frowned upon in Islam, and it is quite likely Small did not go through Islamic avenues to pursue the separation.
Somehow, Aziz managed to win her back, likely with phony promises that he had changed.
Shortly thereafter, the violence inevitably erupted again. Aziz killed Small and her two children before going to a park. There, he ended himself. Small’s story is truly tragic; she was just looking for love, and she when she thought she found it, she just ended up being taken advantage of and murdered by a seventh-century psychopath.
