Jabin had to be bluffing about reinforcements, and Neelix knew it, if anyone had bothered to ask him, just like he knew that any Kazon who sends out a distress signal is seen as weak and ripe for annexation by another sect in Initiations.
If Jabin asked for help, he'd lose Ocampa and the Array to a stronger Maje.
Janeway didn't understand her enemy and was making bad decisions predicated on poor comprehension of the field of play.
I don't think that the other Kazon in Jabin's own group would think he was weak for asking for help against superior invaders from the other side of the Galaxy...
