Tania Joya was a devout Muslim from London. Her husband, John Georgelas, was a convert to Islam from Texas. For ten years they both believed in jihad and a caliphate.

Yahya al-Bahrumi born John Georgelas, (born 1983, he has also called himself Ioannis Georgilakis and used the kunya Yahya Abu Hassan) is an American-born convert to Islam, jihadist, Islamic scholar, and supporter of the Islamic State (ISIL).[1] He is reported to have impressed Arab Muslims with his “mastery of Islamic law and classical Arabic language and literature”, and was reportedly close to Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, the ISIL spokesman, chief strategist, and director of foreign terror operations (before his death in 2016).
