1. Jihad

See also: Jihad
Other than enabling rapid communication between Fremen tribes, the Ichwan Bedwine can also declare jihad on behalf of the Fremen people. Jihad can be declared against any region of a different religion. However, the three Fremen factions must all agree to invoke it. This is done through a voting mechanism of the Ichwan Bedwine which operates similarly to corporate voting. A declaration of jihad provides significant military advantages, but undermines economic and social development. Any Fremen faction can abandon the jihad at any time. The jihad ends when either all factions abandon it or when the targeted faction region has been captured.
