Gambino Round Up: No, “Bobby The Jew” Isn’t Jewish, But . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
Tens of Mafiosi (or is that, Mafioso?–my Italian ain’t too good, capiche?) were arrested today in both New York and Sicily. It was the biggest round up of Gambino crime family members (the second largest American Mafia family still in operation–Genovese is #1). Among their crimes:

the slaying of a court officer, drug trafficking, robberies, extortion at a failed NASCAR track and other crimes dating to the 1970s.

Good luck finding witnesses not sleeping with Luca Brasi for the stuff from the ’70s.
Reading the first four pages of the 169-page criminal indictment is fun if only for the nicknames. One of ‘em, Robert Epifania, is “Bobby the Jew.” Judging from his surname–which you really can’t do with any degree of certainty, these days–it doesn’t appear that he is, in fact, a Jew.

But the fact is that while some people think of the mob as Italian, Cosa Nostra is not a strictly Italian operation (only its leadership and made men hierarchy is purely Sicilian). While the mob is a dying enterprise, the complaint lists a virtual U.N. of western ethnicities. There are Italian, Greek, Irish, German, French-Canadian, WASP, and Jewish surnames among the 60-odd indictees (over 80 were arrested today).
Included is even a “Lance Moskowitz”. Cousin of ICE Michigan/Ohio Special Agent in Charge Brian Moskowitz a/k/a “Abu Moskowitz”? Although the surname is common in Judaism, I wouldn’t be surprised if the completely dishonest and untrustworthy New York native Abu M is related. Right now, he has his own criminal conspiracy, protecting extremist Muslim terrorist fundraisers and illegal alien smugglers in Michigan and Ohio. Question is: How much protection money is he getting? Michael Corleone, he ain’t.
Not arrested today, John “Junior” Gotti, Jr. He claims he’s now clean and straight. Tell that to my friend, Curtis Sliwa.
Authorities are saying this shows the mob, contrary to my view, is not a dying breed:

The probe’s scope shows the mob “still exists in the city and the state of New York,” said New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. “We like to think that it’s a vestige of the past. It’s not.”

But they are prosecuting crimes that date back to 30 years ago and more. I’m not saying they shouldn’t. Murder is murder, and it must be punished.
However, the mob is simply not what it once was. My friends in federal and local law enforcement tell me that, for example here in Detroit, the drug, counterfeiting, and stolen merchandise rings are all operated by Arabs and Muslims, not Italians or other mob-connected figures. Some of their profits are funding terrorists.
I’m even told the guy who is now running the Black Mafia Family (a drug ring) is believed to be a Muslim Arab.
They are the new mobsters. Alhamdillullah [Praise Allah].
No “Al-Sopranos” in the hopper, though. Because while it’s kosher to portray Italians in a bad light, it ain’t halal to do it to Arabs and Muslims.
“Bobby the Jew”? Fuhgedaboutit. Meet “Mohammed the Muslim.”

Speaking of who’s NOT Jewish–David “Son of Sam” Berkowitz.

RUSSIAN organized crime is thriving in both Russia and the United States. As usual the FBI (F’ing Bunch of Idiots) is behind the curve.
As for ICE…?
Surly you jest! ICE (Immigration & Chicken Chit Enforcement) is the laughing stock of the law enforcement community. ICE is only concerned with arresting Hispanic laborers and they aren’t very good at that. Ironically, so called “WORK SITE ENFORCEMENT” (WSE) is the ONLY mission of ICE in 2008. Well, good luck with that! The three remaining candidates (Huckabee has less than zero chance) for President of the United States were all co-sponsors of the 2007 AMNESTY-LITE bill in the Senate. All three candidates have vowed to propose “comprehensive” immigration reform for illegals currently present in the U.S.(and for those that will fraudulently claim to have been here since whenever…) So knock yourself out raiding meat processing plants, car washes and fast food restaurants for the rest of they year. ICE is “numero uno” in the fleecing of America. But the clock is ticking on the “Reign of Terror” for the ICE PRINCESS and the DUCHESS of DEAD TO ME (November 4, 2008).
The amnesty bill will become a reality in 2009. The law will abruptly end ICE WSE (5 years of too little/too late). AMNESTY LITE (a fine and a place at the end of the line) will leave our nation more vulnerable to terrorist attacks. ALL illegals, not just workers from Mexico and Central America will be untouchable while their applications are process (see 1988 Amnesty for details). The law will make it virtually impossible to remove ANY aliens for years. ICE takes almost a day to process ONE illegal alien for removal. How long will it take to process 20 million aliens to stay forever?
The legacy of ICE will be the end of INS and the beginning of a whole lot of NADA.

Debbie:
I don’t know exactly what your point is but there is a well known historical relationship between Jews and Italians in the Mafia. The relationships went well beyond “associate” membership. People like Myer Lanski were “full” members of the Board of Directors. When my Jewish father was growing up on the west side of Chicago the Jews and Italians were best buds and many of them went on to “senior” positions in the outfit.
As far as Bobby the Jew goes, he may or may not be Jewish. You can’t just go by the name. The Famous Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani and his Nobel prize winning relative Franco were Jewish.
[J: I MADE THE SAME POINT ABOUT THE JEWISH SURNAMES, BUT I GUESS YOU DID NOT READ THAT PART. MEYER LANSKY? UM, HOW LONG AGO DID HE DIE? HOW OLD WAS HE? THAT WAS AGES AGO. I'M TALKING ABOUT TODAY, WHERE THERE IS ALMOST ZERO JEWISH INVOLVEMENT IN THE MOB. YOU NEED TO UPDATE THAT INFO BANK IN YOUR HEAD. NEXT, YOU'LL BE TELLING ME ABOUT TODAY'S "ACTIVE" PURPLE GANG. DS]

The Russian gangs are running roughshod over city governments, cities, and are now pressuring the press. These guys are as vicious as anything on the planet, they kill everyone in a family, and they seem to know how to handle a bureaucracy (perhaps because of their Communist pasts)like they owned it.
A couple of very good movies have been made with Russian gangs a part of the story; “Little Odessa,” and “Eastern Promises” will scare the shit out of you.

Debbie:
You have a certain style about you. You should be a Dominatrix although the one Dominatrix I do know is a much more pleasant person then you.
I don’t have a list of Jewish names for you who are involved in organized crime because I lack the interest that you seem to have. If you don’t think Jews are still involved in organized crime then you are quite naive.
[J: AGAIN, READING IS FUNDAMENTAL (RIF). I NOTED THAT THERE WERE SURNAMES OF ALL ETHNICITIES, INCLUDING JEWISH ONES, IN YESTERDAY'S INDICTMENT OF THE GAMBINO CRIME FAMILY. PLEASE READ MY SITE MORE CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU GO OFF ON TANGENTS ABOUT "SEX WORKERS". DS]

I am muuuuch more concerned about Ali Babba and the 40 Shahada than the Knights of Columbus or Beth Tikva.
[N: AMEN! YOU GET IT. DS]

Part of living in neighborhoods in, say, the Bronx in the 1940s and 50s, where there was a tangible Mob presence, was that it kept street crime down. An old lady could walk out in the evening and get a paper and a quart of milk without some punk grabbing her purse or ripping her earings off her ears. In a way, it was similar to how political corruption in the U.S. differs from places like Mexico, where every level has something going on. Whereas here, as in some Mafia neighborhoods of a half-century ago, the big crooks keep the little crooks down.
