The Judeo-Russian Mafia

The Judeo-Russian Mafia 

From the Gulag to Brooklyn to World Dominion 

PDF

While the FBI and major media obsess about the Sicilian Mafia (the "Cosa Nostra") a 
far more powerful and sinister force is in existence that has controlled most of the 
globe's organ-ized crime for at least two decades — the Jewish mafia from Russia 
(a "Kosher Nostra"). Yet there is not even a desk at the FBI for their crimes, 
which dwarf those of the Italian gangsters in scope, violence and depth. 

By M. Raphael Johnson, Ph.D. 

On April 28, 2002, a military helicopter went down
in the southern part of the Krasnoyarsk region of
Siberia. On board was a major Russian dignitary,
Gen. Alexander Lebed, governor of the region.
Lebed was pronounced dead at the scene.
Almost immediately, the international press blamed "heavy fog"
for the incident. However, at the time, every member of the
Russian military was convinced the death of Lebed was no acci-
dent, but rather another hit by the inter-
national Jewish mafia, an organization
that had long since taken control over
much of Russia's economy. Lebed, likely
the most popular man in Russia at the
time, was going to build a national social-
ist empire — possibly with Chinese assis-
tance — based on the massive oil and
mineral wealth of the region. 

Had he succeeded, world history
could have changed, and the 21st centu-
ry would look very different. Prior to
that, dozens of anti-Zionists in Russia
had been murdered by car bombs or
other devices, while none of the cases
was ever solved. Only a handful was even
investigated. 

The very fact that the Jewish mafia
(often misnamed the "Russian" mafia)
was capable of completely covering its
tracks, being completely left out of all
news reports surrounding the incident,
while the common people (in Russia)
were utterly convinced of their complici- 

ty, proves the immense strength of this rather new movement of
organized crime. 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 vio-
lent 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 major figure in uncovering the web of secrecy that sur-
rounds the Jewish mafia was a journalist named Robert I.
Friedman, who died at an early age from
a "tropical disease." He has interviewed
the major figures in this underground
and has uncovered their hiding spots
and plans. After his book on the subject
was published, major mafia leaders put a
bounty on his head. The "Russian" mafia
knows that it can kill with impunity, and,
given their cozy relationship with Euro-
pean and American intelligence agen-
cies, their immunity from real prosecu-
tion will only get more pronounced. 

Friedman's work is breathtaking in
scope, and this essay will cite him exten-
sively, especially his book Red Mafiya:
How the Russian Mob Has Invaded America.
Friedman is not afraid to state the obvi-
ous, namely, that the entire "Russian"
mafia is Jewish, without exception, and
that they have used this as a shield to
deflect criticism. This shield has permit-
ted them to grow and prosper. Further,
Friedman is also not afraid to admit that
Jewish organizations throughout the

world, led by the Anti-Defamation League, are the beneficiaries
of largesse coming from organized crime, and that the organi-
zations in question are aware of it. In other words, Jewish organ-
ized 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 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 iden-
tical 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 col-
lapsed much sooner if it had not been
propped up by the extensive black econ-
omy. Soon, the rulers of the black market
became so 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 dun-
geons served this new criminal elite very
well (Friedman, 9) . 

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 do today in prison. They
formed Jewish bunds that, upon release, served to create deep
bonds that exist today, maintaining a highly secretive organiza-
tion 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
Russia, Jews could. Quickly, the KGB took this opportunity to
dump its hardcore criminals into the United States, many who
were Jewish, as conservatives cheered, believing, naively as usual,
to have scored a major victory against the USSR. 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. Given the 

"These courts, controlled 

by the Jewish mob, were more 

powerful and acted more 

quickly than the regular

New York City. Balagula 

had created a state 

within a state. " 

substantial nature of the black market and the Soviet criminal
underground, and its exclusively Jewish character, it is difficult
to believe that the Jewish groups who were financing the immi-
gration of Russian Jews to America were unaware of the con-
nections of many of the new arrivals. Regardless, much of the
money earmarked for immigration to Israel was pocketed by the
mafia and redirected to settling Jews in New York — the New
Promised Land. 

Marat Balagula was one of these. A major Jewish crime fig-
ure, he bought a restaurant in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn,
named it the Odessa (a major port city in Ukraine), and quick-
ly converted it into a central recruiting base for mobsters. It was
also closely linked with Zionist agencies in the area, including
the women's group Hadassah, who used the establishment for
meetings and fund raising dinners (Friedman, 17). This restau-
rant also became the seat of real political power in Brooklyn,
for in the upstairs part of the establishment, Balagula and other
Jewish mobsters would convene the "People's Courts," and
their word was (and is) law. Ordinary courts in the area could
not hope to compete with the mobsters, well protected by pow-
erful Jewish groups within the city and the municipal govern-
ment itself. 

These courts, controlled by the Jewish
mob, were more powerful and acted
more quickly than the regular municipal
courts of New York City. Balagula had cre-
ated a state within a state. The Italian
gangs in New York didn't know what hit
them. Public executions and torturings
were common in Brooklyn, and in broad
daylight. Often, public murders would
happen for the tiniest offenses, or to
prove one's toughness. While the Italians
were very cautious and deliberate, the
Jewish mob was flamboyant and gratu-
itously violent. 

Yuri Brokhin, another Jewish mobster
who had already made a name for himself in America, and
Balagula were heavily into stealing diamonds from jewelry stores
and replacing them with cheap fakes. At one incident, narrated
by Friedman, the pair pulled such a scam in Chicago, and was
caught at the airport with $175,000. As it turns out, the duo was
seen by a Jewish security guard in Chicago's O'Hare Airport
wearing their phony Hassidic garb on the eve of Yom Kippur,
when Jews are strictly forbidden to travel. This sloppiness got
them caught. The duo was convicted, but as proof of the power
of the Jewish mafia, they both got off without a jail sentence,
having committed major grand larceny, among other crimes. Of
course, Friedman does not speculate as to why this would be,
since a major felony such as this often carried sentences over 20
years. Both Brokhin and Balagula were criminals in the USSR,
and were able to transfer their wealth to America via Zionist and
"charitable" organizations of Jewry. 

A major connection between the halls of American political
power and the Jewish mafia is the rabbi Ronald Greenwald. He
knowingly did business with con artists and mafia figures, and
used his major political connections to shield them. Greenwald

was a major player in CREEP, the
re-election campaign for Richard
Nixon in 1972. Greenwald was
used heavily by Nixon and other
Republicans to gain the Jewish
vote, which he doubled for Nixon
during that election (Friedman,
31) in the state of New York. Soon,
the rabbi was given a post as an
"advisor" to Nixon on "Jewish
poverty programs," a post which
certainly made some snicker at the
time, though it was clear that
Nixon owed Greenwald, and the
rabbi made quick use of his new-
found powers. He used his power
to protect the mafia's bilking of
Medicaid programs and other
crimes that were never investigat-
ed by the authorities. 

His post as head of the 'Jewish
poverty" initiative permitted him
to shield those involved with such
financial scams, as well as call off
any and all FBI investigations of his
friends. Part of the rise of Jewish
mafia groups was the protection
afforded it by Greenwald 's politi-
cal connections. 

Greenwald was also instrumen-
tal in protecting Marc Rich, a bil-
lionaire Jewish investor with mob
ties. Rich, a major player in the
Clinton administration, swindled
investors out of billions. Nothing
was done, again, though negative
media treatment against Rich was 

permitted largely because he did do business with Iran, and thus
was considered a traitor by his fellow Jews. Eventually, Clinton
pardoned Rich in a much-publicized case, and Rich is now free. 

Jewish mafia investors all but took over Las Vegas, also with
the political protection and patronage of Greenwald. Some
years back, a movie was released called Casino, starring Robert
DeNiro and Joe Pesci. Concerning itself with the takeover of Las
Vegas, the film depicted Mr. Rothstein (played by the Jewish
DeNiro) as the suave and successful entrepreneur, and Pesci as
the typical Italian wiseguy, brash and insolent. Of course, the
purpose of the movie was to absolve Jewish organized crime and
transfer all blame to Italian mobsters. The opposite was true. 

Balagula, before taking over Jewish mafia interests in the
United States, acted as a mob functionary for the KGB. In his
very own words, Balagula said that the "KGB gave him visas, no
problem" (Friedman, 44) and was instrumental in sending him
stolen art and jewels, which he sold to foreign tourists. The KGB
also set him up as head of the largest food co-op in Ukraine, a
position he quickly turned into a major black market operation
with the blessings of the KGB. Near the end of the Cold War, 

The investigative stories of Robert I. Friedman (1 951 - 

2002) appeared from the early 1980s. Allegedly, he died
of a tropical blood disease. But many had their doubts and
believed he was poisoned. The daring Jewish journalist
made headlines exposing politicians, bankers and mob-
sters who preyed on the powerless. The ADL maligned
him, death threats poured in, and he was badly beaten by
West Bank thugs. Friedman warned the FBI of the threat
posed by the first World Trade Center bombers and deliv-
ered vital reports on the long arms of the Russian Jewish
mafia, which offered $100,000 to have him killed. 

members of the KGB viewed the
Jewish crime syndicate as a source of
possible new jobs for them after the
old system was destroyed. So, not
only did they have the patronage of
the American political establish-
ment under Greenwald, but also the
decaying intelligence apparatus of
the USSR as well. 

BOOTLEGGING 

What needs to be kept in mind
about the bootlegging operation is
that it was never small time. No-
thing the Jewish mob did was ever
small. This operation was multina-
tional in scope. They had a fleet of
massive oil tankers, tanker trucks
and hundreds of gasoline stations
and distributorships, all owned by
Jews loyal to the mob. Balagula had
created a massive mafia empire
leading from North Africa to Saudi
Arabia to Venezuela to Brooklyn.
The Jewish mobsters developed an
infrastructure within the oil trade
that made them invincible. Mafia
influence is substantial in the price
of oil, as well as acting as the occa-
sional go-between between the
Mossad and Arab oil-producing
sheikdoms. No one of substance was
ever brought to justice.
* * * 

With all the power that the
Jewish mob has amassed, they are
merely a pimple on the back of the
master of them all, and a man who truly controls much of the
globe. There is no one on Earth more powerful than he, and, as
per usual, he remains unknown, left out of all press and televi-
sion reports on the subject. The CIA considers him a "grave
threat" to global security and the "world's most dangerous man"
(Friedman) . The fact that he remains almost unknown shows
the power of the Zionist-controlled media and their relentless
drive to suppress all investigation into Jewish crime. He has cre-
ated a massive, global communications network and employs
hundreds of Ph.D.s in computer science, physics and econom-
ics to run his massive financial empire. He has penetrated every
stock exchange in the world and controls much of the trading
therein. 

He was also the mastermind of the largest money-launder-
ing scheme in U.S. history, "washing" $7 billion through the
Bank of New York, which is a major branch of the Federal
Reserve and his bank of choice. His name is Semion Mogilevich,
born in 1946. 

Basing his first operations in Israel, where he fleeced Jewish
refugees from Russia, Mogilevich acquired Hungarian citizen-

ship after making the comment that the biggest problem with
Israel is that there are "too many Jews there." However, he sin-
gle-handedly controls the brothels in Israel, where Ukrainian
and Russian girls are forced into sexual slavery This is legal in
Israel if the girls are non-Jews. The name of Mogilevich has been
left out of every report on the phenomenon in Israel, Ukraine
or the United States. 

Mogilevich also controls the vodka trade in Russia and
Central Europe. 

Most ominously, Mogilevich has bought Hungary's arma-
ments industry. In other words, he controls the military equip-
ment being manufactured in Hungary. He has his own army,
artillery, mechanized infantry, antiaircraft guns and missiles of
all types. NATO has said that he is a "threat to the stability of
Europe," though his name remains little known. This mobster is
militarily more powerful than many European countries. He has
nuclear weapons from the former Warsaw Pact countries and is
presently trading with various governments and providing them
with nuclear technology. He has agents in
the intelligence agencies of all European
countries, which means that he may never
be prosecuted, for he is made aware of
any pending investigation into his activi-
ties, which quickly gets quashed. 

German television reported that the
German intelligence service, the BND,
had entered into secret negotiations with
Mogilevich whereby the latter would sup-
ply information on his rivals in Russia. He
has a similar arrangement with French
intelligence. He has close connections to
the Mossad, which destroyed his criminal
file (Friedman, 245-247) . Therefore he is 

immune to prosecution and travels freely. He controls the black
market from Central Europe to Russia. He has a Rockefeller
connection as well, as his main economics advisor, Igor
Fisherman was a consultant to Chase Manhattan Bank.
Friedman writes, concerning the Fed and its relations to
Mogilevich: "While the bank has not been charged with any
wrongdoing, some investigators believe that the money laun-
dering could not have taken place unless senior bank officials
were bought off or otherwise involved" (259). When the Justice
Department began a criminal investigation into Mogilevich
(which went nowhere), he accused the Department of an "anti-
Semitic conspiracy." 

George W. Bush's professed mentor, Natan Sharansky, has
long and deep ties to organized crime. The Congress, State
Department and the CIA all have lengthy dossiers on Sharansky,
who acted as a bridge between the Republican Party and Jewish
thugs in a similar manner to Rabbi Greenwald. Sharansky, know-
ing his power, simply refused to sever his ties with organized
crime, infusing the Jewish mafia into the highest echelons of the
Bush administration. A pattern emerges in relation to the
Republican Party: Russian Jews usually pose as "anti-Commu-
nists." They did this partially because they had been arrested by
security services for their black market activities, but also because
this posture would make them valuable to Republican operatives 

George W. 's father refused 

to cooperate with several 

investigations into Russian 

mob activities in Switzerland. 

The CIA has commented that 

there is no "major Russian 

mob figure that does not 

carry an Israeli passport. " 

and the Beltway "conservative movement." Their reputations as
"dissidents" protected them almost as much as their religion. 

Because of this, George W.'s father also refused to cooperate
with several investigations into Russian mob activities in
Switzerland. The CIA has commented that there is no "major
Russian mob figure that does not carry an Israeli passport," but
the Israeli state refuses to take any action against the gangsters.
Yitzhak Rabin was the one exception, and met with Mossad fig-
ures, as well as Shin Bet and Israel's FBI, to combat organized
crime, believing that it could destabilize Israel. Within a few
days, he was murdered. His successor, Shimon Peres, shelved the
recommendations formulated under Rabin, where they collect
dust to this day. 

CAUSES 

It might be worthwhile to delve into some of the causes of
this phenomenon. Why the Jews? It is true that many culture
groups have engaged in ethnic based organized crime, but it
seems only the Italians get frequently
mentioned. Today, Chechen, Hispanic
and Albanian gangs are growing in power,
but none has come close to being even a
footnote to the Jewish clans. Few people
in the FBI, CIA or DEA speak Hebrew or
Yiddish. Some Jewish mobsters go back
and forth between languages, including
Russian, so as to make themselves more
indecipherable. 

The power of the Jewish gangs is
wielded more ruthlessly than any other
criminal gang. Jewish mobsters enjoy
inflicting pain, they murder children as
well as unarmed men and women. The
old code of honor among Irish and Italian gangsters is nonex-
istent. These old-time mobsters would only kill another mobster.
The Jewish gangs have no regard for these rules, and thus are
more feared. The sheer arrogance of the Jewish gangsters and
their outrageous self-assurance have allowed their "competi-
tion" among the Italian gangs to take a very cautious stance
toward their Jewish counterparts. 

The state of Israel is a major factor in the rise and power of
the Jewish mafia. Jewish drug dealers, child porn pushers and
slave traders are free from prosecution in Israel. Israel does not
consider these to be crimes, again, so long as the victims are
non-Jews. The mafia proved its power in the murder of Yitzhak
Rabin. The Israeli state will not extradite its citizens to non-
Jewish countries, and, therefore, Jewish murderers can quite
easily escape punishment in Israel. 

The unique situation in the former USSR, and the fact that
Jews predominated in the Soviet bureaucracy, provides another
link in the rise of the mafia. Jews predominated in the earlier
and more primitive black market in Russia, and thus these
groups were physically more ready to take advantage of the cri-
sis in Russia beginning in the mid-1980s. 

Jewish organized crime, connected to both the KGB and
Mossad, automatically had the skids greased to remain off the
radar screen for allied intelligence agencies. 

46 MAY/JUNE 2006 

Likely the most important factor is the complete control of
the media by Jewish families and the power of the ADL in
American culture. The power of the Jews in America is so great
that any serious investigation into Jewish crime will see shrill
attacks from every major media outlet in America. In terms of
public relations, it is just not worth it. Therefore, one will see a
television program like The Sopranos about Italian mobsters, but
one will never see the same program featuring Jewish mobsters. 

WHAT CAN BE DONE? 

There is very little that can be done at
this time. There is every reason to believe
that soon, nationalists and Revisionists will be
targeted by Jewish criminals with strong ties
to the Mossad. The fate of the west is being
decided in Moscow, not in Washington, D.C.
or New York. Russian President Vladimir
Putin needs to continue to centralize power
in his own person. His elimination of provin-
cial governors was meant primarily as a crime
fighting campaign, as local governors were
making peace with the crime bosses. Putin
also needs to continue to reform the military
and security services, making them more and more loyal to the
new Russian order. Putin should begin publicly drawing atten-
tion to the global power of the bosses and the connivance of
western powers in their rise and present prosperity. 

The ruble should be made non-convertible (so as to prevent
its manipulation by crime bosses in the currency markets) , and
a strong Sino-Slavic trading bloc needs to be solidified. Police
work in Russia is now a rough business. Poorly paid policemen
need to be supplemented by local militias to begin direct and
militant confrontations with organized crime and corruption
wherever it might arise. Putin has the popularity and the power
to create a major security bloc against organized crime, as well
as capitalist imperialism. Russian banks need to come under 

state control, and be purged of all criminal elements. Further-
more, the church, currently the second most popular institution
in Russia after Putin, needs to place its powerful seal on the
development of a mob-free Russia, and call on all Russians to
repent and begin building a nationalist and communitarian sys-
tem. Agriculture and the village commune should receive gov-
ernment support to repopulate the countryside, making Russia
self-sufficient in food. 

And, of course, Russia's extremely important and strategic oil
and natural gas reserves need to be protect-
ed by interior ministry troops and placed
under government control if need be. Putin,
the nationalists and the church have
tremendous popularity and influence. This
capital should be spent on developing a
nationalist system dedicated to purging
Russia of Jewish-inspired crime, imperialism,
depopulation and liberalism. He is already
moving in this direction, and Russian eco-
nomic growth and a low inflation and unem-
ployment rate are its fruits. 

The state of Israel is a 

major factor in the rise 

and power of the Jewish 

mafia. Jewish drug 

dealers, child porn 

pushers and slave 

traders are free from 

prosecution in Israel.
