Killing Cathars (Albigensian) in france is a defensive thing because the Cathars threatened the realm. Killing Baltic tribals (Northern Crusade) is defensive war in the fact the tribals were raiding Central Europe.
A jihad (HOLY STRUGGLE) is an offensive war conquering people in the name of Allah.
How the fuck is (spoilers) calling what Paul does at the end of the first book a crusade a correct when a crusade is a defensive war for the holy land and defending against heathens and heretics to a Jihad.
Have you fucking read the book? You know the book where the author himself expressly called it a Jihad?
Fuck you for defending the change and supporting the rape of author's intent.
