Anyhow, fun/odd sequence of events here. I get the "jihad unlocked" big message, it says Mecca has fallen! I think hang on, who could have done that?

It's...the Nubian tributary kingdom under the Caliph. So he wants to call a jihad to reclaim Mecca, but can't, because it was taken by his tributary.

Oh well, let's just go beat up some Normans to take out our frustration instead I guess!

It wouldn't surprise me if the Caliph himself even helped the Nubians in their war for Mecca.

I don't know if that happened (probably), but the Caliph certainly helped them when the other Caliph declared his own jihad on them.

Seljuks gonna Seljuk. Ah well, so much for that brief moment when Miaphysite MA hit 89.

...but they still have Mecca.

Footnote to this saga: I was poking around the Ethiopian Miaphysite sphere while all this went down and--I've never seen such high intrigue in a regular AI character!
