That's one of your faults, I think. Either that or it's a bug - But try re-installing the mod, or actually checking that you are commanding the said troops (E.g. You might be telling archers to charge, while you have cavalry selected)

Most likely because it seems many people like crusaders - But as soon as "Jihad" comes up, you get roving racists shouting "Terrorism!"
Plus, there are Jihads. Jihad means a determination to do something, like the Crusades are Jihads because the Christians were determined to take over Jerusalem,
Hint there, it was never theirs - But Pope Urban was admittedly (By many Christians, Catholics to be exact so people don't start hating) a greedy person. Crusaders were brainwashed into thinking they were fighting for god, till they soon found out later, that they were tricked.

But the point is, if Jihads are added - people will begin hating and doing what they do best, being bastards. And also, name me one Jihad (In a war-sense) that was called at this time period. The closest would be those that were called by Salaha'Adin (Saladin) - And the last of those were in 1187.

Not hating. Not Trolling. So no one start hating/trolling here. Everyone does a Jihad all the time, unless that person isn't determined to do anything in life. (Even eating food can be a jihad, so buy food in MB - Jk.)

Its alright, I like the setting and the map layout, but needs more troop variations.
