In the Phantom Menace Queen Amidala uses a decoy. I've read on the article for Richard that its possible that Jacob isn't the true leader of the island, just a decoy. The real leader being Richard or as i believe baby Aaron. Knowing of the impending war they wanted to keep Aaron off the island for his safety. True or not Aaron is a big piece of the puzzle.
