After Friedman’s book was published, Russian Jewish Mafia leaders put a bounty on his head.
"The Russian Mafiya is into everything from Wall Street to African diamonds... It has compromised governments and threatens the integrity of world banking."
"Sometime in the '90s, the number of Russian mobsters in New York surpassed the head count of all five (Italian) famiglias combined." (Salon.com Books "Red Mafiya: How the Russian Mob Has Invaded ...)
A. What is the number one business in Europe?
The Italian Mafia is Europe's Number One Business
In 2008, Italy's mafias had an income of $167 billion (130 billion euros).
This is equal to 9 percent of Italy's gross domestic product.
Drug trafficking brings in about 59 billion euros.
Trafficking in illegal waste and similar activities brings in 16 billion euros.
5.8 billion euros were earned from selling arms.
Extortion brings in 92 billion euros
The country’s main criminal gangs are the Mafia in Sicily, the Camorra based around Naples, the ‘Ndrangheta that operates from Calabria and Sacra Corona Unita in Puglia.
"If Marc Mukasey, The Attorney General's son, can be the lawyer for Madoff's top executive Frank DiPascali via his firm Bracewell & Giuliani in New York, and if Madoff turns out as laundering for the Russian mob and drug cartels, then how in the world could Marc have avoided turning them in?"

C. Michael Collins Piper, at American Free Press, December 2007, writes about ' rudy giuliani godfather of the russian mob'
According to Piper:
Giuliani closed down the local, mainly Italian-American, mafias.
This allowed certain foreign mafias to take over.
These foreign mafias were mainly Jewish and mainly from Russia and Israel.
The NewYork tabloids praised Giuliani
The New York Post is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a supporter of Israel who is of partial Jewish descent.
The Daily News is owned by Mortimer Zuckerman, another pro-Israel hard-liner.
Sam Kislin is 'a Ukraine-born and now New York-based patron of Israel'.
Kislin is reportedly linked to high-ranking figures in the 'Russian' mafia.
Kislin raised more than $2 million for Giuliani’s intended bid for the Senate in 2000.
The initial base of operations for the Jewish (so-called 'Russian') mafia was the Brighton Beach area in Brooklyn.
Giuliani 'looked the other way'.
Robert I. Friedman wrote in his book Red Mafia that 'one of the leading figures' in the Jewish mafia, Shabtai Kalmanovitch, was also working for Mossad.
Friedman pointed out that 'Russian mafia' figures, such as Joseph Kobson, have links to Likud in Israel.
Friedman wrote: "With two decades of unimpeded growth, the Russian Mafiya has succeeded in turning Israel into its very own 'mini-state,' in which it operates with virtual impunity.
"Although many in international law enforcement believe that Israel is by now so compromised that its future as a nation is imperiled, its government, inexplicably, has done almost nothing to combat the problem."
Friedman suggested that U.S. law enforcement has done little to counter the 'Russian' mafia.
The reason, Friedman said: "A large part of the problem was political: the Russian mob was predominantly Jewish."
Patrick Cotter, a top Justice Department prosecutor, reportedly said that while the FBI had squads targeting the Italian-American mafias, there was no squad targeting the 'Russian' mafias.
The Russian-Jewish mafia is 'protected by the most powerful political force in the United States today: the Jewish lobby, represented by such groups as the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) of B’nai B’rith, a documented arm of Israel’s intelligence service, the Mossad, as well as the American Jewish Congress and the American Jewish Committee.
'The mass media, largely controlled by Zionist interests, has also redirected attention away from these elements.'
