That's a good point. There indeed is a lot of cohesiveness between crime groups in varied countries around the world, which is a scary proposition. Imagine if they created a real international organized crime syndicate that operates with the same kind of cooperation as the domestic Syndicate. I think that Italian and Sicilian groups do this now.

It is frightening really.

Italy and Sicily have several organizations combined.

Sicily

Cosa Nostra - Sicily
Stidda - Southern Sicily

Northern Italy

Mala del Brenta

Southern Italy

Basilischi - Basilicata
Camorra - Campania
'Ndrangheta - Calabria
Sacra Corona Unita - Apulia

I want to learn more about the Balkan Organized Crime, such as Albanians, Belgians, Bulgarians, Chechens, Corsicans, Estonians, Macedonians, Montenegrins, and Serbian mafias.

I know for a fact the Albanian mafia is definitely amongst the top of the heap. They're cooperative with alot of other criminal organizations such as the Italians and Russians. In fact, they are commonly considered the worst of the lot for their level of violence and unforgivening reprisals. The Albanian mafia has been likened to the Sicilian mafia during its earliest years. They are very scary people to encounter.

What about the Mafia?

They're just a bunch of thugs dressed in nice suits and drive nice cars and live in nice houses, all paid for by the people they extort, steal and kill from.
Yet, they seem so "proud" and "puffy" about it.

I have ZERO respect for thugs.

There is a powerful allure of money, power, and respect. These are the top dogs and some rose up from the very bottom of the barrel. Unfortunately, there are people at the bottom of the barrel that see no future except through the opportunities of organized crime. They walk through life like the world owes them something. It is also a very cut-throat business, don't worry most will end up dead and the rest will be living in a cell.

I have zero respect for thugs and their street terrorism too because they prey on innocence and law-abiding citizens. The American mafia has produced some fascinatingly flamboyant characters but Hollywood myths haven't helped either.

I am fascinated by 1930s depression era that experienced an onslaught of bank robbers and public enemies such as John Dillinger, Alvin Karpis, Vernon C Miller, etc. Quite a fascinating era in US and Canadian history. There is an out-of-print biography on Vernon C Miller I simply can not afford and wished I could get.

WikiLeaks: U.S. worried Israel becoming 'the promised land' for organized crime

U.S. Embassy follows Israeli crime families closely and considers them a serious threat, cable shows.

By Barak Ravid | Dec.03, 2010 | 2:25 AM | 2

The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv sent a cable to the State Department in May 2009 expressing little confidence in the Israel Police's ability to counter the growing wave of organized crime.

The cable, released on WikiLeaks, said the embassy was taking pains to prevent members of crime families from being issued visas to the United States.

The cable, under the headline "Israel, a promised land for organized crime?" notes that the U.S. Embassy was following Israeli crime families closely and considered them a serious threat to the United States. The embassy has set up a database on the subject with the help of Israeli and American law-enforcement agencies.

"Given the growing reach and lethal methods of Israeli OC [Organized Crime], blocking the travel of known OC figures to the United States is a matter of great concern," according to the cable, signed by James Cunningham, the U.S. ambassador to Israel.

The author, however, is probably the Tel Aviv consul responsible for granting visas to Israelis, or perhaps a U.S. law-enforcement attache.

The cable describes the violence among crime families that began in November 2008 with the murder of Ya'akov Alperon. "Israeli crime boss Yaakov Alperon was assassinated in broad daylight in a gruesome attack on the streets of Tel Aviv, only about a mile away from the Embassy."

Also described is the shooting of an innocent bystander on a Bat Yam beach during an attempt on the life of Rami Amira. The assassinations of Abutbul family members in Netanya are also noted.

The authors point to leading Israeli crimes families such as the Alperons, Abergils, Abutbuls, Rosensteins and Shirazis. They focus on gambling, extortion, trafficking in women, loan sharking and control over the recycling market.

Quoting a source, the authors note that "in recent years, however, the rules of the game have changed ... the old school of Israel OC is giving way to a new, more violent, breed of crime."

They note that "the new style of crime features knowledge of hi-tech explosives acquired from service in the Israeli Defense Forces, and a willingness to use indiscriminate violence, at least against rival gang leaders. New OC business also includes technology-related crimes, such as stock market and credit card fraud, and operates on a global scale."

The embassy informs the State Department about a new police unit, "called Lahav 433. The elite unit operates under the direct command of the police commissioner, and is charged specifically with infiltrating and eliminating Israel's major crime syndicates."

The embassy source, however, "expressed skepticism that recent arrests will bear fruit in the long term without a sustained commitment to enforcement. He noted that many of the crime leaders remain active while in prison and their operations are not hampered significantly even when they are convicted and jailed."

The cable notes that it is unclear how far the crime families have penetrated the government, but it mentions the 2004 arrest of former minister Gonen Segev, who tried to smuggle thousands of Ecstasy pills into Israel, and the election of Inbal Gavrieli to the Knesset in 2003.

"The election of Inbal Gavrieli to the Knesset in 2003 as a member of Likud raised concerns about OC influence in the party's Central Committee. Gavrieli is the daughter of a suspected crime boss, and she attempted to use her parliamentary immunity to block investigations into her father's business."

Russian Mafia
Posted on July 9, 2012

Russian mafia is considered to be the most powerful crime syndicate in the world. The fact is that the “Russian” mafia is the Jewish mafia.

The Jewish mafia is nothing like their Irish or Italian predecessors in its American or European operations.They are richer, more international in scope and far more violent and ruthless. They kill children. They kill policemen and their families. They kill whomever they like.There has been nothing like it before in the history of the globe. And they are just getting started.

The entire “Russian” mafia is Jewish, without exception, and that they have used this as a shield to deflect criticism. This shield has permitted them to grow http://www.russiawithoutborders.com and prosper. The Jewish organizations throughout the world, led by the Anti-Defamation League, are the beneficiaries of largesse coming from organized crime, and that the organizations in question are aware of it.

In other words, Jewish organized crime is considered an acceptable part of Jewish life, and that Jewish organizations have actually lobbied law enforcement to stop investigations into this phenomenon, almost always with success. The confirmation of Zionist Michael Chertoff, to the post as chief of Homeland Security guarantees that Jewish organized crime in America will not be at the receiving end of the many stings that have targeted the Italian Mafia.

The roots of Jewish organized crime, it is said, go far back into tsarist times. Organized crime http://www.russiawithoutborders.com syndicates assisted Lenin’s gangs in bank robberies and the creation of general mayhem. During the so-called revolution, it was difficult, sometimes impossible, to distinguish between Bolshevik ideologues and Jewish organized crime syndicates. They acted in nearly an identical manner.However, in more modern times, they seem to have had their roots in the waning days of the stagnant USSR under Leonid Brezhnev.

By the late 1970s, the Russian economy was driven by the black market, and the early stages of the Jewish mafia were involved in this black underground. In fact, the Russian socialist economy would have collapsed much sooner if it had not been propped up by the extensive black economy. Soon, the rulers of the black market became so http://www.russiawithoutborders.com powerful they were able to form their own “people’s courts,” which dispensed “justice” completely apart from the Soviet state, and away from its control.Many of these black marketeers had been recently released from the gulag system of prison camps in an earlier era for their black market activities, and the toughness that was required to survive these dungeons served this new criminal elite very well.

The black market acted as a safety valve for the Soviet state for decades, making all estimations of the strength of the Soviet economy subject to speculation. The black market provided many goods and services the overextended Soviet system could not provide. In the gulag, they had formed brotherhoods, much like blacks and Hispanics currently http://www.russiawithoutborders.com do today in US prisons. They formed Jewish bunds that, upon release, served to create deep bonds that exist today, maintaining a highly secretive organization almost impossible to deal with or penetrate.

Sen. Henry “Scoop”Jackson’s famous bill, the Jackson-Vanick law, linked Soviet trade privileges to the treatment of Soviet Jews. It was a bill lobbied heavily for by American Jewish organizations. And while non-Jews could not emigrate from Soviet Union, Jews could.


Much of the Jewish mafia’s penetration into the United States came as a result of these Soviet “boatlifts,” which were partially financed by groups such as the ADL or the Hebrew Aid Society.

"The Italian mafia has a singular link between Italy and America. The Russian Mafiya is more international. The Russians seem crazier than do the Italians. While the mafia uses violence to punish enemies, the Mafiya will kill the enemy, his wife, his children. They kill as a warning and for the sheer joy of tyrannical violence. Because the Russian mob is mostly Jewish, it is a political hot potato, especially in the New York area. In general, state and federal law enforcement agencies were loath to go after Russian mobsters, instead devoting their energies to bagging Italian wise guys, a traditional route to promotion." (Robert I. Friedman. Red Mafiya. How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America, 2000)

"Nobody takes the Russian Jewish mob seriously," said a NYPD detective. "The lack of interest of law enforcement has given them time to grow." A major roadblock was the super sensitivity to the Jewish aspect of émigré crime. The Jewish leaders worried that the resulting negative publicity from acknowledging the existence of Russian Jewish mobsters, of which there were an estimated 5000 in the New York metro region, would foster a wave of anti-Semitism.

"The Mafiya dominates Russia, and has Eastern Europe in a bear hug. It is also turning Western Europe into its financial satrapy, and the Caribbean and Latin America have quickly become sandy playpens for coke and weapons’ deals with Colombian drug lords. There are few nations where the Russian mob does not hold some influence, making efforts to combat it ever more difficult." (R.I. Friedman, 2000)

Thanks for posting that. Some of the groups are new to me. I know about the ones in Calabria and Campania. Some folks think that all Italian organized crime groups are part of the Mafia. They don't understand that the Mafia is based in Sicily. Like you said, there are several groups in Italy. The La Cosa Nostra (our thing) took off in New York City because of immigration demographics. Most new arrivals there came from Sicily when the Mafia took root in the USA. Of course, there were Black Hand and "Mustache Pete" groups in larger cities across the country. The bulk of the Mafia was Sicilian, as far as I know. Now, the Albanians are taking their places in locales where their power weakens. They might be just behind the Russians in terms of growth in New York City.

There is one reality with billions of versions.

I saw a documentary on Israeli organized crime. From what I understood, some of the criminals were "old school" types who participated in regular crimes like bookmaking and loansharking. Others worked with mostly Russian gangsters in the sex slave ring. The victims were sent from eastern Europe to Tel Aviv to places around the world.

I believe I agree. The Italian mafias were decimated by the FBI, informants, the Organized Crime Control Act, and The Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO. What has filled the vacuum in their place is actually worse to be honest. These are really bad and scary people.

Here is excerpts from an article on the Albanian mafia:

Balkan Death: The Albanian Narco-Mafia
Feb 15, 2010

By Marko Lopusina | The network among ethnic Albanian clans, maintained by ancient codes of cruel vendettas, spans the world and equally involves unknown local Albanian clansman as well as the Albanian nobility and the pretender to the throne Albania’s Kong Zog.

Organized narcotic trafficking has been the dirtiest and the quickest business that makes such a large profit that the business became attractive not only for the criminals but even for certain governments. Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Bulgaria, Albania, Columbia and Taiwan have often been linked to official drug trafficking.


Adopted from Marko Lopusina's book Balkan Death: The Albanian Narco-Mafia published in 2000

There are only three regions in the world producing narcotics today. These are countries in the South-East Asia, Middle East and South America. All other regions in the world are only markets for the resale of drugs produced in Taiwan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Peru, Chile and Columbia. According to the Interpol data, the drug route from the South-East Asia to the consumers markets in Western Europe goes from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iran to many centers in Turkey – Istanbul being the most important one. Interpol estimates say that about 90% of heroin confiscated in Europe comes from Turkey over Bulgaria and Macedonia. On that route, first Iranian, then Lebanese and finally Turkish drug network appeared 30 years ago. In the meantime, Bulgarian and Albanian mafia grew up on drug smuggling, using the Balkans roads, air and water ways to enter Europe and America.

Production and distribution of narcotics is the main source of income and the base of power in many South American countries, in the Middle Eastern part of Asia and in the north of Africa. The case of Manuel Noriega from Panama, whose coup in Nicaragua was partly drug financed was rather vocal about the power of drug dealers. In some parts of Asia one third of inhabitants make their living by smuggling drugs that sometimes end up on the streets of cities like Zurich and Amsterdam in Europe where drug addicts live and die in the streets.
In the countries where narco-mafia predominates, power and purpose of government has been eliminated. Money made in trade of drugs, then seeks to get legitimate and is often times invested in many developing programs of rich countries.

In former Yugoslavia, the Albanian mafia made $45 million annually in 1990s by controlling the Turkish drug chain from Istanbul through Zurich to New York. A large chunk of this money returned to Kosovo to finance separatist activities inside the province as well as use the money to buy sympathies from the international NGOs that will implicitly advocate Kosovo Albanian separatist agenda.

Ethnic Albanians were initiated as the couriers for the Turkish and Bulgarian state mafia thirty years ago. These used smuggling of narcotics as the source of financing secret political, military and intelligence service operations. The majority of them were recruited in the “Kosovo triangle” Veliki Trnovac-Preševo-Gnjilane, marked on Interpol map as a black point on world drug routes.

French expert on narcotics, Alen Labrus described Kosovo Albanian drug smuggling operations to the Washington Post as being managed by tough, merciless bands that have displaced Turks as the leading smuggling clan:

“Powerful Turkish clans controlling Europe heroin market, realized that Russian, Caucasian and Albanian narco-mafia have invaded their territory in the last ten years, looking for their part of the market and profit. Kosovo ethnic Albanians have become so strong that they keep under their control 70% of drug market just in Switzerland. The war in the Balkans interrupted previous Yugoslav channels of drug smuggling from the Middle East to Europe, but the agile Albanians have opened new distributive centers in the past 4 years and new passages to the West. The Albanian connection represents a heroin route causing great problems to European policemen and European countries,” said Labrus.

American drug domination

With estimated 60 million addicts, the US is an enormous drug market for the Albanian mafia men.

I was told by the Chicago police that the Albanians in America are only one in many strong links to the Colombian drug distribution link today. They keep New York and there are 60,000 of them in Chicago and Toronto and earn about US$ 50 million per year on heroin. American policemen told me that the Albanian underworld is hard to penetrate because the links are ethnic and compact and deal cruelly with informants.

I managed to meet Chicago policemen of the Drug Enforcement Agency- DEA, who told me about their experiences with Albanian drug dealers. The chief of this Department was Eugen Domart, and his associates Anthony Luna and Raymond Schnoor. Then the lieutenant Domart told me:

“ We are small operative group consisting of eight inspectors whose task is to follow Albanian dealers who work on a small scale up to 2 kilos of drugs. Our last seizure was £750 of heroin and £ 350 of hashish. In the Albanian settlement in Chicago and in the state of Illinois their political organization “Bali Combart” deals in smuggling. Beside Albanians there are Serbs from America in the drug network. Last time three of us managed to bring to the court two Albanians. The first was Besim Hasnama, called Beni, and the other was Faik Gashi, known as Toni. Both of them were members of the Albanian clubs in Chicago and in Toronto. For delinquency and illegal entrance in Canada they have been already brought into court. This time they have been caught while smuggling and reselling the drugs. During investigation and in court they did not say anything because they were afraid that “Bali Kombart” would kill all the members of the family in case they say anything to the police!”

In the archive of this inspector I saw a file of Zenun Djukaj, born in 1952 whose wife’s name is Isabelle and who came to USA from Switzerland. He was 185 centimeters tall, with brown hair and bright eyes – it was written in his file. He was suspected to trade in heroin in Washington by the Chicago police.

“ Zenun Djukaj came to Washington from Zurich in 1991 to his brother Redjep Djukaj. He has already sold 800 grams of heroin and 400 grams of hashish in Washington. Now we have been working on the evidences so that we could arrest him and condemn him”, said Eugen Domart to me.

On the list of drug dealers from the Albanian underworld in the Chicago police there were, as I could see, Erdogan and Arif Kurap from Istanbul, Destan Celikovski from Kicevo. And in USA prisons there were already 30 Albanians condemned for drug smuggling throughout America.

In the USA, the goods were also overtaken by the family members. Daut Kadriovski, born in 1949, Albanian from Skopje, is the biggest supplier of heroin of the American market with the turnover of about several hundred million dollars. Our Police has his file as a drug dealer in former Yugoslavia and Europe. He went to Spain over Yugoslavia, developing his business and finally settled and made his throne in America, organizing his own drug distribution network since 1992. FBI has been looking for him unsuccessfully for 6 years. The wanted circular has been stuck to all federal buildings in the USA.

According to the 1994 testimony of then lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani from New York an American Albanian offered his solicitor $400,000 to “give that money to anyone who would kill Alan Cohen, assistant prosecutor and Jack Delmar, DEA agent” who discovered an Albanian mafia cartel in New York.

American gangsters rarely kill law enforcement officials but even Giuliani was threatened with death. As a result, the FBI initiated an official investigation of Albanian drug cartel in New York and discovered that Albanian drug mafia had their head office in New York borough Bronx, that they had their branches in the Detroit and the suburb of Hamtramck as well as in Massachusetts and Illinois.

“ Albanians in USA have their own distribution network, mainly for heroin. But they very often engage in the same business with South Americans and Sicilians”, said Captain Glen McAlpin from Detroit.

“ Today Albanian drug mafia supplies New York with 30% of heroin coming from Yugoslavia”, said Endrew Fernich, DEA official, a special department for fighting the drug addiction in the USA. “That heroin is being distributed throughout America exclusively by the Albanians and the Turks who use their companies as a cover for this dirty business.”

The case of Skender Fici who ran a tourist agency “The Staten Island” and of Theresa Worldwide was written about in the US media. The story notes that his tourist agency was used for quick and short trips to Yugoslavia and Turkey, where the heroin was bought and then smuggled to America. The first kilo of Fici’s heroin arrived in New York in February of 1979 and the job was done with the clan of Xhevdet Lika called Joe Lika, who had his base for processing and distribution of heroin in the artistic part of Manhattan. The drug sales were carried over Chinese boutiques.

Lika worked alone till 1980, but then he joined Xhevdet Mustafa. Their main financier was Albanian king Zogu who used the drug profit to strengthen his monarchy and crown. After the dispute with Lika at the end of 1982, Mustafa disappeared. Police supposed he was killed by the Albanian drug mafia. New associate of Lika clan was Duja Saljani, the owner of a restaurant in New York.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

What about the Japanese Yakuza and the other Asian mobs. Might not strictly be Mafia but just as dangerous. Or the drug cartels in South America? You know, Medellin wasn't exactly a tourist hot spot.

They're just a bunch of thugs dressed in nice suits and drive nice cars and live in nice houses, all paid for by the people they extort, steal and kill from.
Yet, they seem so "proud" and "puffy" about it.

I have ZERO respect for thugs.

I have to agree with dekker on this,everything you have mentioned sounds a bit familiar doesnt it?

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."

Yeah, I made brief mention of the Japanese Yakuza, Chinese Triads... but there's also the Nigerian mafia, Pakistan mafia, Taiwanese Triads such as Bamboo societys, Vietnamese Triads/mafias, India Mafia, the multi-national D-Company of India and the United Arab Emirates .

I remember watching one documentary some years back in which the Yakuza were portrayed as nothing but a bunch of lazy bodied slobs that banked off their rackets and crimes. Yamaguchi-gumi is the biggest and strongest Yakuza family with 50,000+ members strong.

The biggest and strongest Chinese Triads are the 14K, the Sun Yee On, the Wo Shing Wo, and the Wo Hop To. The memberships of these Triads definitely number in the tens of thousands may even easily surpass a hundred thousand.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and then there is the Columbian drug cartels and the Mexican drug cartels too. But are they transnational? Do they have as much powerbase and territory of operations as these other organized crime groups?
