Jews, not Italians, at the center of the American Mafia underworld

Meyer Lansky

Meyer Lansky (born Majer Suchowliński in Grodno (Belarus), July 4, 1902 – January 15, 1983) was a gangster who, with Charles "Lucky" Luciano, was instrumental in the development of The Commission (and possibly the "National Crime Syndicate") in the United States.

Lansky also headed up Murder, Inc. for The Commission and was largely responsible for the Mafia's development of Las Vegas and a financially beneficial relationship with the corrupt Cuban regime of Fulgencio Batista y Zaldívar. Although Jewish Mafia, Lansky undoubtedly played a central role in the Italian Mafia's organization and consolidation of the criminal underworld (although the full extent of this role has come under some debate).

Let's see now. Stalin was a Jew, as was Trotsky, and Lenin as well. I would say that the tribe from Russia makes up for about ninety percent of the world's evils. Of course I could be wrong. It's probably ninety five percent. How blessed is the world for having such a race among us. Just thinking about it makes me want to give all my money to Holocaust fund.

God has a REAL holocaust in store for this precious race:

"And the house of Jacob shall be a fire, and the house of Joseph a flame, and the house of Esau for stubble, and they shall kindle in them, and devour them; and there shall not be any remaining of the house of Esau; for the LORD hath spoken it."—Obadiah 1:18
