Godfather of the Jewish Mafia. One of the most powerful figures in the criminal New York during the “dry law” was Arnold Rothstein. He made money on illegal alcohol and casinos. In fact he was the one who created an organized corporation out of a group of villains. Rothstein was called “Brain” for his ability to count many steps forward. He was shot during the card game altercation, but Rothstein is remembered for exaltation of the Jewish Mafia in the United States.
Las Vegas and Barsi Siegel. Barsi Siegel, Brooklyn gangster who moved to California, found the representatives of the Jewish mafia clans. He entailed the development of the gambling industry. Siegel has invested money in the construction of the hotel, and soon the Jewish Mafia money turned Las Vegas into the center of the world gambling industry.
The Israeli mafia. Imagine that the mafia in Israel is not the same that in the United States. It occurred there quite naturally – in 1948 the newly established State of Israel began to acquire all the necessary things of life, such as the army and the bureaucracy, and the mafia in this list is somewhere in the middle. In the 70s Israel already had their crime, and in 80s the Israeli Mafia had become known throughout the world, as its representatives can rob several jewelry stores in Manhattan at once.
Strategy. Barsi Siegel created not only Las Vegas, he determined the development strategy of the Jewish Mafia for years ahead. After the abolition of the “dry law” he invested into gambling and cinema.
Areas of Jewish mafia interest. Despite the fact that the mafia bosses are not public figures, experts say about the very broad interests of the Jewish Mafia in the United States. Its influence has expanded into many areas of business in the world. First they were selling illegal alcohol, later included in its sphere of interest unions, drugs and gambling. Now the Jewish mafia controls the entertainment and media. In particular, representatives of the Jewish Mafia in different time controlled CNN, MTV, Universal Studios, Disney. And that’s not all!
Cooperation. Jewish and Italian Mafia eventually began to work closely. For example, they created a company “Murder Inc”, whose members were engaged in contract killings. The corporation operated for over 20 years and had been very profitable, but after its work was suppressed by police.
Unions. Yes, the Jews also affected the work of trade unions, to be exact – they created the trade union movement. Surprised? It was the Jewish mafia that started to unite workers and teach them to communicate with their employers.
The image of “cool Jew” is also the merit of the Jewish Mafia. Until the end of World War II Jews they hated and viewed as a nation of weaklings. The rise of the mafia helped change the image of the Jew as well as the creation of the State of Israel. Since the 1960s, Jews are considered cool in popular culture thanks to the mafia fighters and Israeli soldiers.
Hollywood. Mel Gibson, the famous anti-Semite says that the Mafia has been ruling Hollywood for long time. And he’s right, because today Hollywood not only shoot film about the Mafia (remember “The Godfather”), but uses the money of mafia in film production.
Meyer Lansky is another icon of the Jewish Mafia and an example of the cool Jewish mafioso. He created “Murder Inc.” and was a born accountant, for what he was called “a mafia accountant”. Lansky had a range of casinos around the world, and died at the age of 80 in Miami, surrounded by friends and loved ones. It’s believed that wealth of Lansky at that time was about half a billion dollars.
