What I meant was, I wonder whether the Dune series, being so prominent in science fiction, Dune winning the Hugo and Nebula and all, had any influence specifically on Stephen Kandel's usage of the term when writing that particular episode.
Much MORE likely is the 1973 Yom Kippur War--in which Sadat labeled a Jihad--influenced Kandel.
Aha! Interesting idea. Thanks.
