The Mafia and the Allies

Postby Mortimer » 6 years 10 months ago (Sat Oct 12, 2013 7:32 am)

The mainstream media and the Allied nations themselves claimed that they were morally superior to the Axis. But how do you explain the fact that the Roosevelt administration worked hand in hand with the mafia and helped to reorganise their activities in Sicily after the US invasion - http://codoh.com/library/document/2593

The Allies intervention in the Mediterranean was always strategic. The British & French sought absolute control of either end of the sea & as many of the large islands as was possible, for e.g. Alexandria, Palestine, Cyprus, Crete, Malta, Gibraltar were all under the sway of the British when WW2 began. When Mussolini formed his Fascist Party after WW1 he was in the pay of MI5 & it was with their authorisation & assistance that he invaded Abyssinia. It was MI6 that drafted Franco into place before the Spanish Civil War, Hirohito belonged to the high echelons of the British establishment & Hitler of course owed his rise to & retention of power to Wall St. Allied duplicity goes much further than helping the Mafia. The Sicilian Mafia were re-organised to run the lucrative drug trade post war. Given the intimate connections between the leaders of the Axis Powers & the All-lies, WW2 can be seen as nothing else other than a monumental inside job, with Hitler, Mussolini & Hirohito being either accomplices or betrayed. I can only speculate that it was out of stark necessity that Italy & Germany opened up so many fronts & invaded the nations that it did during the war.

I recently viewed The French Connection dvd with director's commentary by William Friedkin. He stated that the major supply of heroin came from the Corsican underworld and that the US government had requested the extradition of Jean Jahan. The French authorities refused because he was a member of the resistance during WW2 - in other words even though he was a drug dealer and gangster he got a free pass because he fought with De Gaulle. This is the "morality" of French politicians -

I recall when I was living in France in the Seventies, reading about the connections between the Gaullist party and the Corsican Mafia, dating back to the War, when they played a similar role in the landings in the South of France as the Sicilian Mafia had in Sicily. Googling will no doubt bring up more details.

The US dealings with Lucky Luciano are well documented, including in Wikipedia.

A recent piece of writing by Ron Unz is American Pravda : The Power of Organized Crime. The article mentions the role of mafia types who used dubious methods to acquire the assets of Japanese in the United States who were interned after Pearl Harbour.

Article from the UK newspaper The Daily Mail which reviews a documentary called Wages of Spin II Bring Down That Wall. It is all about US president Ronald Reagan and his ties to Lew Wasserman the Hollywood mogul who was a front for organised crime. No wonder the Hollywood studios and their stars keep churning out anti fascist/anti Nazi movies by the dozen it's because they were against the mafia whereas Hollywood types are in league with them !

Wasserman was being investigated by the Department of Justice for mafia links when Reagan became president. Not long after the investigation was called off.

a must read here:

American Pravda: The Power of Organized Crime
http://www.unz.com/runz/american-pravda ... zed-crime/
How a Young Syndicate Lawyer from Chicago Earned a Fortune Looting the Property of the Japanese-Americans, then Lived Happily Ever After as America's Most Respected Civil Libertarian Federal Appellate Court Judge

As usual, we see that that The Usual Enemies of Free Speech are the leading figures.

Writing before the “official version” of historical events had been rigidly determined, Bryant describes Germany’s very difficult domestic situation between the two world wars, its problematic relationship with its tiny Jewish minority, and the circumstances behind the rise of Hitler, providing a very different perspective on these important events than what we usually read in our standard textbooks.

Among other surprising facts, he notes that although Jews were just 1% of the total population, even five years after Hitler had come to power and implemented various anti-Semitic policies, they still apparently owned “something like a third of the real property” in that country, with the great bulk of these vast holdings having been acquired from desperate, starving Germans in the terrible years of the early 1920s. Thus, much of Germany’s 99% German population had recently been dispossessed of the assets they had built up over generations, sometimes due to the same sort of corrupt financial practices that Bazelon and his friends had used to enrich themselves in California at the expense of the Japanese.
