If you wished to "march past" then you wouldn't "march through" but gone via a different region ......nice try to defend the indefensible......

Coincidentally you are likely to find Petra exactly that very soon I suspect..... :wink:
Alright, it's confirmed that Arabia and thus Ptolemy are the aggressors. When you don't even try to argue your case, that makes it quite clear what is really true.

Given Ptolemy's lack of response and the fact that the ledger shows him having surprisingly little military power, I'm pretty sure he's trying to desperately assemble an army to oppose me.

Someone could ask when this neverending war of empty words will end, giving space to real warfare. :roll:

The proper term is "mutually beneficial partnership" - something that the beneficent Antigonid Dynasty offers to all civilized nations. Come together under Alexander's Dream........or fall forever.

Nah, only Levites can be High Priest and only Judahites can be king.
Antigonids can always be "valued advisors" though...

This game is getting to the point where I load up each new turn dreading what diplomatic chaos I'm going to find. :lol:

So 285BC and finally the Egyptian and Arabian fightback against years of Judean aggression and expansion can begin.

The Egyptian Advance Guard under General Claenymes reaches the devastated region of Petra where the whole Judean army sits smugly over the emaciated corpses of its vanquished Nabatean garrison.

After a fierce battle the Judeans are crushed and Petra is expected to fall within the year to the Egyptian liberators.

The main Egyptian forces continue on their designated route out of the sight of Judean spies.

In a co-ordinated move, to the South East Egypt's Arabian allies now capture Aelana region in Nabatea Province from the Judeans.

The misled Judean populace in Jerusalem are reportedly now turning on the High Priests in their gilded Temple and accusations fly around of false prophets promising them a huge Empire and easy conquests..........

Some priests are reportedly scanning the horizon to the south from the walls of Jerusalem with horses saddled ready to abandon their people to their fate...........

Yeah I had a feeling this might happen when devoncop was persisting despite no sign yaitz would relent. Still someways to go but if it ends the way it started I'm going to say the Judeans talked themselves into annihilation.

Given that we have proven your aggression here and you have not even attempted to refute it, this is disingenuous in the extreme.
The Egyptian Advance Guard under General Claenymes reaches the devastated region of Petra where the whole Judean army sits smugly over the emaciated corpses of its vanquished Nabatean garrison.
No, most of our army was marching there. You and Nabatea each attacked half of my army.
And, again, the Nabatean garrison assaulted us as we were only marching by.
After a fierce battle the Judeans are crushed and Petra is expected to fall within the year to the Egyptian liberators.
No, you simply slaughtered our horrifically outnumbered forces.
The misled Judean populace in Jerusalem are reportedly now turning on the High Priests in their gilded Temple and accusations fly around of false prophets promising them a huge Empire and easy conquests..........
No, the populace of Jerusalem has rallied behind their leaders to defend against a hostile foreign invader. Loyalty is above 100. As we have defended against foreign enemies in the past, so too will we defend against foreign enemies now.
Some priests are reportedly scanning the horizon to the south from the walls of Jerusalem with horses saddled ready to abandon their people to their fate...........
NEVER. Let Ptolemy not make up false stories designed to reflect negatively on Judea's brave men fighting the hostile Ptolemaic invaders who are determined to spread their heathen ways against God's people.

An open letter from Judea to the world:
It is quite clear that what has happened was that Arabia attacked Judea, Ptolemaic-Arabian relations surpassed a critical point, and Ptolemy was called in to an aggressive war. This is why it was a gap of several years between the aggressive Arabian declaration of war and Ptolemy's entry into the war. His deal with Judea to permit us to punish Arabia's aggression slightly was cut short when Arabia demanded he enter, and Ptolemy could not refuse. This is the only explanation of what has occurred that makes sense, accounting for Ptolemy's delayed entry as well as his change of heart.
As such, it is evident that Arabia, and thus Ptolemy, are the aggressors here.

Let all nations join together to defend God's people. Anyone who defends the nation of God shall surely be richly rewarded by Him.

The heathen Ptolemy will perish, and his wicked kingdom will collapse, but the people of God will endure forever.

For a consistently high standard of output the High Priest of Judea Johanan ben Aaron has been nominated for the "Lifetime Achievement Award" in the category of "Groundbreaking Fiction"..... :roll:

It should be noted that the "Lifetime Achievement Award" is normally given to those writers approaching the end of their lives. .....

He's very good indeed! Manages to get on my nerves as a good actor should like Joffrey from GoT.

Keep it up!

Then what is Ptolemy's claimed version of what occured, and how does it fit with Ptolemy's change of heart and delayed entry?
Given that Ptolemy has never put forward a sensible account of what truly occured, while Judea has, it is not the High Priest who should recieve the prize for excellence in fiction...

And Johanan ben Aaron warns Ptolemy that he who enters God's inner chambers once a year without harm will surely not fall to such a wicked man as Ptolemy.

Who can sort out this sordid tale. I urge the participants to cease their burdens on the uninvolved. Duke it out and may the map convey the full story.

For only might makes right, vae victus.
