Portuguese Pilot Shot Down in Libya Is Covered in Kabbalistic Tattoos - An Israeli Link?

Thanks to the well-known pop star and devil worshipper Madonna, we know a lot more about the Kabbalah than we wish we did.

Before joining the dots that explain the headline of this article, its important first to describe the shooting down the other day of a fighter jet in Libya.

A French made fighter jet, a Mirage F1, was shot down on Monday of this week over Tripoli by forces fighting for the liberation of Tripoli from extremist militias have captured its European pilot.

The Libyan National Army, led by Field Marshal Khalifa Hafter, released video footage Tuesday of a man in bloodied clothes. Under questioning, which continues, he identified himself as a 29-year-old Portuguese national working as a private contractor pilot. It is presumed he was working for one of the extremist militias that, in reality, make up the Armed Forces of, so called by the U.N., Prime Minister Fayez Serraj.

The LNA, which is slowly but surely defeating the militias of the ‘Serraj government’, says it shot the man’s plane down over the capital.

This is the first proof of foreign mercenaries fighting for the international community’s U.N. backed Tripoli based ‘government’. (As stated earlier, who In actuality, due to there existing no GNA Armed Forces, no real Serraj government forces, are a collection of militias with a dominant influence of the Muslim Brotherhood, an organisation that dates back to the 1920s that is already designated in some countries as a terrorist organisation).

Its worth giving further background to a little discussed aspect of extremist organisations like ISIS, is where in the main do they recruit from? The answer is Tunisia!

On the 14th July 2016, Bastille Day, a 31-year-old Tunisian man drove a truck through a crowd in Nice in the South of France, killing 86 people. What main stream Press seem to continuously fail to emphasise, even report at all, is that in ISIS, there are an estimated 8,000 Tunisian men and women who fight as ISIS in other countries.

Not to be forgotten is the other infamous attack by ISIS in Tunisia itself, that left in total up to 60 tourists murdered with many more wounded while they lazed on the beeches of their hotels. There were two such attacks.

The first, at the Bardo Museum in Tunis in March 2015 killed 22. Three months later, 38 tourists, most of them British, were shot dead on the beeches of Sousse.

A mysterious, in some ways, fact remains that Tunisians constitute the single largest group of foreign terrorist fighters in Syria, Iraq and Libya. Why so many are Tunisian is still not completely clear. Why leave their fairly liberal society in Tunisia for ISIS’s theocratic pseudo-state? One theory is it is because of the strength of the Muslim Brotherhood in Tunisia.

Spokesmen for the Libyan National Army have been accusing their opponents of using mercenaries backed by certain foreign powers.

This Portuguese fighter pilot now provides the evidence. Finally a detail that might, repeat might, link this pilot to Israel, yet to be confirmed, is this.

As can be seen from a picture taken of him shirtless yesterday, he has a tattoo over his heart. He also has a small tattoo on his right arm and a huge multi coloured and multi imaged tattoo on his back.

This symbol is more closely examined here:

Initial research shows this tattoo on his chest to be in some way associated with Hermetic Qabalah (from Hebrew קַבָּלָה - qabalah), meaning 'reception, accounting' which has associations with mysticism and the occult.

Hermetic Qabalah differs in many ways from the Jewish version, however it shares many concepts with the Jewish Kabbalah.

The Kabbalah Centre’s main base was (and I believe still is) in Los Angeles and it moved there from Israel in the early 1980s.

The Kabbalah Centre’s most famous advocate for many years was Madonna, who often wore a red string bracelet and wanted her name to be Esther!

She clarified in later interviews when she said “I'm not Jewish, I'm an Israelite!”

Despite her love then for Kabballah, Madonna did not identify herself as Jewish, the pop legend told Ireland's The Independent in 2015.

Madonna knows how to curry favor with Jewish music executives

When asked to what extent would she would characterize herself Jewish, Madonna reportedly laughed the question off, saying "No, I don't affiliate myself with any specific religious group. I connect to different ritualistic aspects of different belief systems, and I see the connecting thread between all religious beliefs." Madonna elaborated on her exhaustive knowledge of theological, saying that though she studied Kabbalah, and does follows many religious practices affiliated with Judaism, like observing the Shabbat and holding a bar mitzvah for her son, she has not converted. "This would appear like I was Jewish, but these rituals are connected to what I describe as the Tree of Life consciousness and have more to do with the idea of being an Israelite, not Jewish," she told The Irish Independent.

All this might be an explanation for her ignoring pleas for her not to perform at the Eurovision Song Contest to be held soon in Israel (where her performance is planned to take place on the 18th May) which has been boycotted by most international artists.

Its worth explaining who the founders of the Centre were.

Karen Berg, described as the “avaricious wife” of Rabbi Philip Berg, the Center’s founding Rabbi are used to media coverage.

However in a series of articles, the Los Angeles Times exposed a darker side of what many consider to be more of a celebrity cult. Karen Berg was said by a source to be “calling most of the shots.”

Further investigations revealed that the family moved to Israel, date unknown, but presume mid 1970s, where the Rabbi taught Kabbalah. While there the couple had two sons, Yehuda and Michael. “At home, his conversations with Karen often concerned less spiritual topics,” an early follower told the LA Times adding, “....with her eye on the prize, a big house,” the family returned to the U.S. in the early ’80s, as they could not make enough money in Israel.

This is their current website

In concluding this bizarre story, still unconfirmed, yet still rather incredible, albeit vague, connection to a downed mercenary pilot in Libya, it is also interesting to mention that in 2004, a Vatican group warned that her latest religious belief "Kabbalah", a mystical form of Judaism, was a potential threat to the Roman Catholic faithful. However at that time, Madonna refused to kowtow to Italy's Catholic sensibilities, and in a published interview in 2006 she had nothing but praise for her Italian background. She told Italy's edition of Vanity Fair her "good Italian genes" were the reason for her staying in shape, famously allowing her to “writhe in a leotard” in her then most recent video.

The above was reported and here is the link

Concluding with Madonna’s controversial decision to perform in 2019, for her 4th time, in Israel, on 18th May, the Daily Mail of London, dated 9th April 2019, explains the angry response of many fellow celebrities at her failure to recognise the mass killing of Palestinians at the hands of the current Israeli Government.

More news of the mercenary pilot is expected to come to light over the coming days.
