Background
Enemies have always surrounded the State of Israel. From the very beginning when the Arab states united in the Six Day War, all the way up to the Uprising. Israel tried its best to safeguard the country against all threats. It was in this environment of always been under siege that the idea of a Cabala was formed. Israel watched closely the events unfolding in Europe, with the founding of the Dawnstars in Italy, and Knightwatch in England. While a plan for the formation of a super group of their own was put down in writing, it was never actually implemented. The concept was trumpeted by the super-hero Solomon 9, and a few others; however, the prime minister didnít back the proposal having more faith in the military and Mossad to deal with possible threats to Israel.

All this came to an end when Fatwa made its first attack on Israel. Storms of dust the likes no one had ever seen before billowed to life near the Wailing Wall. The storm was created by Sirocco to cover the attack by the other members of Fatwa. Saladin threatened to destroy the wall if Israel didnít release political prisoners. The two Ubers were a diversion while Imam, Ifrit, and Al-Humra Nisr raided the Temple on the Mount.

Fortunately, it turned out that Solomon 9 was nearby in civilian guise. Once he had changed into his super-hero costume, he was able to discern the intent of Fatwa. However, a single hero would never stand a chance again the might of Fatwa. In the end Solomon 9 was defeated, and Imam got away with several relics. The aftermath of the raid of the Wailing Wall was the formation of Cabala, a government sponsored group.

The prime minister turned to Mossad, and Solomon 9 to look for prospects for Cabala. One of the first recruits for Cabala, besides Solomon 9 who was designed the leader of the group, was Desert Falcon. Desert Falcon, who was a member of Mossad, was known for his fight against terrorists.

Golem was recruited by accident. An artist, who accidentally merged with his creation, got really confused and went on a rampage. It was through the intervention of Solomon 9, who was able to pierce the confusion in artists mind, was able to calm Golem down. Golem brought some much-needed strength to the group.

Later additions to the group included the mysterious Nazi hunter Survivor, Merkava, a recent immigrant from America, Delilah a super strong Jewess, and lastly Testament, a cabalistic mystic. Cabala has battled against all threats to Israel, including Fatwa, naturally, the Sons of Set, and while Five Pillars act as super-heroes; Cabala doesnít trust them.

Cabala suffered the loss of Testament during a three-way battle between Fatwa, Cabala, and Five Pillars. Ifreet, immolated the Jewish hero. A national memorial was held for Testament, and a statue was erected on the site where he fell. With enemies on all sides, Cabala stands as the last defense of Israel.
Area of Operations
Cabala safeguards Israel from all threats. However, the group is very proactive, especially Survivor. Cabala has been known to travel secretly throughout the Middle East. Survivor and Desert Falcon are both suited for such covert actions. Survivor has also been known to travel into Europe, and South America as well. His quest for vengeance takes him almost everywhere. The voices urge him on.
Goals
Safeguarding Israel against Uber-human threats is Cabalaís primary purpose. Israel sees the increase of Uber threats to the country, and Cabala is all the country has. Another goal of members of the group is the tracking of Nazi war criminals. While Survivor is the primary member actively pursuing war criminals, other members help out as needed. A further goal of Cabala is to confound terrorist organizations in the Middle East. Like Survivor, Desert Falcon is the primary member who deals with them, due to his Mossad connections.

Reputation
Cabala is known widely in the Middle East. For some they see Cabala as the only true defense of Israel. Some claim that it was Sanction that convinced Merkava to immigrate to Israel. To Israelís foes, Cabala is a power group of Ubers, and Fatwa in particular has stated a death warrant against all of the members. Five Pillars, while Islamic, view Cabala as rivals not foes. However, neither group is really on speaking terms, and has clashed at times. Internationally Cabala is supported by the United States super-group Sanction, and information from Knightwatch and the Brotherhood has passed onto the Israeli group. Another group that opposes Cabala, though indirectly is Die Kinder. The two groups have yet to clash, but Survivor is certainly on their trail.
