So this new Antigonus is going to travel back in time and become the original Antigonus. Got it.

I don't quite understand why having an Israeli Founding Father leading another country would be a BAD thing.

I for one view it as a great way to initiate peace after a long period of conflict.

Indeed not..........

My point was that Judea may end up with a leader called Antigonus given the expansion of the Antigonids in this game :D

Ah, my mistake.
In that case, I guess I'd better hope Antigonus isn't also a Semitic name.

An open message from Judea:
Ptolemy and Judea had reached an agreement that "Egypt will remain out of any Arabian/Judean conflict for now unless Judea tries to take the Arabian Capital," (direct quote from diplomatic communications). However, Ptolemy has just joined in Arabia's aggressive war against Judea without any Judean attempt to take the Arabian capital. This is unacceptable, and Judea is now seeking assistance from all just, righteous nations, either in putting diplomatic pressure on Ptolemy to leave Judea alone, or in giving Judea military assistance against Ptolemy.

Judea has no fear of fighting Ptolemy alone if necessary. The Almighty above, Protector of the Jewish Nation, will give us victory. Despite this, we must do our best to gain a victory through natural means, and call out for support. Let Ptolemy not take this request for support against his evil, unjust people as weakness on our part.

Let all the worlds nations join in defending God's people, and God will reward you with greatness.

Ptolemy reads this with some bemusement.

No Egyptian troops have attacked Judea.

We are in an Alliance with Arabia as we have been since long before Judea chose to attack her.

Have the High Priests been out too long in the sun or are they merely looking to provoke a fight with their neighbours ?

Perplexing indeed......

Then why has Ptolemy declared military support for Arabia, officially declaring war on Judea? If Ptolemy has no intention of actually attacking us, then this action is puzzling indeed.

In addition, officially declaring war on us means that your puppet Nabatea will also join. Even if you should give a guarantee not to attack us, your puppet Nabatea is unlikely to refrain from doing so, which would force us to respond in force.

And, yet again, Arabia declared war on us. We did not declare war on them.

With the help of God, other nations shall join our righteous cause as well (if only for an excuse to attack Ptolemy).

Quite an appropriate metaphor, given that it is Ptolemy and not Judea who is trying to sell a fictional bridge. :P

Antigonus son of Seleucus, ie, the eastern Antigonus, finds in favor of brave Judea in the current Arabian War, and pledges non aggression with our Judean neighbors while they sort this out (with more aid under active consideration ...).

Once again, an Antigonus has proven himself to be a righteous man. May the Almighty grant you much success in your Eastern war.

Given the fact that Judea is not a challenger in the Legacy tables to the Seleucids this "independent adjudication" comes as little surprise :wink:

Other nations must judge the facts of the case with rather less self interest......

Did Judea invade and occupy the Arabian Port city before Arabia took any land from Judea......"Yes"

Did Judea attack Arabia despite the Arabians having the Ptolemaics as their allies......yes

Did Egypt proactively declare war of Judea ....No

Was Egypt automatically considered at war because of its Alliance with Arabia who was in a defensive war............"Yes"

Egypt rests its case..........
